Dynasty Electric
Dynasty Electric
Dynasty Electric is a New York art rock band mining the area between experimental music, rock, and pop. The group was formed in 2002 by
multi-instrumentalist Seth Misterka, (whose varied career has seen him working with everyone from experimentalists Anthony Braxton, William
Parker, and Jonathan Zorn to indie rockers Hot Chip, Shy Child, Aarktica, and The Fever) and singer Jennifer DeVeau (who cut her teeth
touring the UK as a teenager with her all-girl Beatle-cover band Girl). Misterka was on date when he met DeVeau at an East Village bar
– his date was late, so he struck up a conversation with DeVeau who was tending the bar. They had an instant repoire, and Misterka asked
DeVeau to join his new band Dynasty.

Working in various incarnations over the years the group has toured across America, Canada, and Japan, and Taiwan, appeared on MTV2, Much
Music, Democracy Now! and New York television program New York Noise, been the focus of photo spreads in Zoo Magazine and Italian Vogue,
released 7”s on DRR Records and Pop Hop, 2 EPs on Newsonic Records, and the critically acclaimed full-length album “Black Box” on
Mysterious Media in 2004. In 2008 the group toured the US, culminating in a performance at the Burning Man Festival.

In 2009, Dynasty Electric released a new EP "Burning", along with a new video "Closer to Contact" produced by award winning production
company Superfad. The group played the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX, and is performing regularly in New York.

Incorporating a wide palette of instruments from theremin, synthesizer, and samplers, to saxophone, electric guitar, and
electronics the group’s sound is edgy, yet accessible, danceable, but experimental, evoking the spirit of great New York art-pop bands like
Blondie, The Talking Heads, Suicide, and The Velvet Underground. Indeed, this great underground New York act is a band whose time has
come. With their accessible sound, and their electrifying live show Dynasty Electric are poised for major crossover success.
The duo, Dru Barnes and Devi Mambouka, mixes the dancehall sounds of his native Jamaica (he grew up in kingston) with tribal and folk influences from her native Gabon (she’s the daughter of a Gabonese ambassador to the United States) and adds clattering electro beats for a sound that’s intensely rhythmic with a riot of jostling melodies.

The name, JOGYO translates from sanskrit as “pure thoughts or stillness among action.” The band, JOGYO is about flow, surrendering to the constant change and harnessing it to create a sonic bombast that is hard to compare to any other.
Technicolor Lenses
Technicolor Lenses
The Technicolor Lenses trifecta is the sonic creation of Jackson T. Whalan, Sam Eckstein and Brandon Lewis... combining original hip-hop and MC-ing, electronic/dub-step, psychedelic rock, jam, funk, and spoken word, providing conscious social commentary on the current state of human existence. The live performance of Technicolor Lenses cultivates the high energy of a hip-hop or electronic set with a unique instrumental element.

"Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus."-Ralph Waldo Emerson.

This young, new, Brooklyn-based band is emerging and sharing far and wide, with the intention is to raise vibrations and consciousness by creating a space of fun, togetherness, and celebration, driven by the vehicle called music.
