– 來自紐約 indie electro 潮宅團體
– 全球文青趨之若鶩潮流指標

Designer Drugs (Michael Vincent Patrick and Theodore Paul Nelson) lead lifestyles of the rich and famous, but are really just poor boys who love helicopters and pop banger music…and a few other things that will not be noted. Currently, Designer Drugs is releasing new material with iheartcomix Records. They’ve also been found partying on the couch at the Iheartcomix office. With one member attending med school and the other drinking whiskey across the globe, to keep from going crazy last year – the DD boys produced over 23 remixes and DJ’d over 100 shows around the world. This year, to keep from going crazy, Designer Drugs is putting the focus on original material while continuing to tour the galaxy and party harder than ever.

Most recently, Designer Drugs released their single “Zombies! / Back Up In This” on Iheartcomix Records, in 2009 with Remixes by Nadastrom, Don Rimini, Le Castle Vania andBird Peterson. Designer Drugs has also completed remixes for labels such as Kitsune, Dim Mak, Fools Gold, Warner Brothers, Ministry Of Sound, Hail Social, Iamsound, Etc Etc, Coco Machette and Calamity Jane for artists such as Little Boots, The Veronicas, Thieves Like Us,Treasure Fingers, Mariah Carey, Jupiter One, Heart’s Revolution, Mission Control, Hail Social, and IAMX.

Both members of Designer Drugs are mentally controlled by ELLE REX (www.ellerex.net), photographer of NYC’s sleaziest and most entertaining electro party – RUFF CLUB. You can find her tagging along to shows, documenting the debauchery that ensues when DD takes the decks. What will happen next? You haven’t partied until you’ve partied with Designer Drugs!

Designer Drugs 是由 Michael Vincent Patrick 與 Theodore Paul Nelson 組成的 electro 雙人組合。他們的生活形態實在是令人羨慕,看起來每天都在跑趴很時尚很奢華的樣子,但其實私底下只是兩個貧窮的男孩,喜愛的東西是直升機與流行的跳舞、音樂當然還有去趴體。據說他們第一次在 Iheartcomix Record 廠牌發行了單曲後,還被抓到在Iheartcomix辦公室的沙發上偷開趴。

他們的形象與照片常常都非常吸引人而且好酷!tshirt 的 model 也都拍的好正好辣。據說兩個團員的心靈都被一個在 Ruff Club 拍照叫 Elle Rex (www.ellerex.net) 的攝影師控制著,Ruff Club 是紐約最下流最好玩的 electro party,而 Elle Rex 則是他們最酷的攝影師;你總是可以發現她一個人來趴體,仔細記錄跟隨 Designer Drugs 上了 DJ 台後的混亂失控!現在他們一起有了一個廠牌及派對組織叫做 Sex Cult(性的邪教),在紐約地下音樂圈也掀起了一陣風潮!

而在世界巡迴的路上,一個是忙著在上醫學院,另外一位則是忙著在全世界的角落喝 Whiskey 喝很掛,為了阻止自己在繼續沈淪下去,他們開始製作超極多 remix,一做就超過 23 首;然後還有一直接 DJ 表演,在世界各地才短短一年就已經演出超過 100 場。去年,也是因為要防止自己再掛下去,開始把重心放在製作出原創作品上,並更努力更用力的在這個銀河系繼續趴體繼續表演。

’09 年夏天,他們在 Iheartcomix Record 發行了首張雙單曲 “ZOMBIES! / Back Up In This” 其中還收錄了 Nadastrom、Don Rimini、Le Castle Vania 以及 Bird Peterson 的混音版。而在去年十月底的時候他們又發行了第二張雙單曲包括 Drop Down 跟 Riot。Designer Drugs 同時也為像 Kitsune、Dim Mak、Fools Gold、Warner Brothers、Ministry Of Sound、Hail Social、Iamsound、Etc Etc、Coco Machette and Calamity Jane 製作混音,當然也有直接替藝人作混音,像 Little Boots、The Veronicas、Thieves Like Us、Treasure Fingers、Mariah Carey、Jupiter One、Heart’s Revolution、Mission Control、Hail Social 以及IAMX。

2010 年他們除了繼續世界巡迴、為眾多藝人製作混音以外,也在年初時來到台北趴體,為正宗 electro跳舞的宇宙注入一股爆炸的能量。而最近十月底也很有才華地在 Ultra Records 底下發行了單曲 Through The Prism 以及單曲音樂錄影帶!

到底 Designer Drugs 的趴體是怎樣呢?你必須相信一件事,如果你沒有跟 Designer Drugs 趴體過,那你就還不算有趴體過!!耶!

– Designer Drugs producer!!!!

Jesse Jamz is the hottest little fucker behind the decks. Girls just can’t get enough of his banging (jams). Dj’ing since the age of 16, Jesse Jamz knows how to bring it. Whether he’s spinning house, electro, or techno one thing is for certain… everyone is sure to end up sweaty.

Flash Forward 5 years.

At age 21 Jamz has played some of the most notable parties in the electro circuit such as DANCE and Blow Up in LA, Girls & Boys and Ruff Club in NYC, Blow Up and Frisco Disco in SF, Live Forever and Hands & Knees in Philly, Dark Wave Disco and Lollapalooza parties in Chicago, WMC parties in Miami, and many more.

Apart from dj’ing Jesse has spent a lot of time developing his production skills. His sound combines classic house elements like piano and strings, electro bass tones, and ravey synth leads. He has officially remixed tracks by Designer Drugs, Richard Vission, VHS or Beta, Trash Yourself, Flosstradamus, and many more. He is currently working on his first EP, which will debut his first original tracks since Purple Drank.

INFECTED MUSHROOM(感染蘑菇)** LIVE **

重新燃起全球 psy trance 狂潮之電氣搖滾天團
百大 DJ #9人氣直逼 2010 年白色派對主秀 Sander van Doorn

Psy-Trance innovators Infected Mushroom have become one of the biggest electronic bands on the planet. Twice ranked among the world’s 10 best DJs by the bible of the scene, the U.K.’s DJ Magazine, the Israel-bred, L.A. based duo bring a frenetic rock energy to the form. Their explosive show, featuring guitars, live drums, intensely passionate vocals and an ambitious multimedia backdrop, ranks among the genre’s most unpredictably joyous events. And their recordings continually venture where other electronic acts fear to tread.

Amit “Duvdev” Duvedevani and Erez Eisen have been working for nearly two years on an aggressive new album – their first since 2007’s critically acclaimed Vicious Delicious – for dance-music visionary Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto label. Duvdev describes the as-yet untitled record, recorded at Infected Mushroom Laboratory in L.A. and slated for a June 2009 release, as a return to the pair’s metal roots. Guests include singer Jonathan Davis of Korn, who lends his estimable pipes to the track “Smashing the Opponent.”

Oakenfold has worked closely with the band in an A&R capacity. “Paul’s known as a House DJ, so we weren’t sure how he’d feel about our heaviest material,” Duvdev reveals, “but he loved it. He’s really brought a lot of great energy and advice to the table.”

From the Ultra Fest in Miami to the Virgin Festival in Baltimore, from Mexico’s OMIX to Cali’s Coachella, from Brazil’s Ipanema Beach to Melbourne’s Metro Club, Infected Mushroom has averaged about 120 live performances per year.

成軍於 1998 年的 Infected Mushroom(感染蘑菇)是由來自以色列北邊的兩個小伙子 I.Zen 與 Duvdev 所組成的電音樂團。早期他們以主流 trance 曲風出發,卻並未獲得商業上的成功;在成員 Duvdev 去過 psy trance 聖地:印度的 Goa(果阿島)旅居一年,受到當地文化的耳濡目染後,兩人便毅然決然地決定改變曲風,並重新命名為 Infected Mushroom 再度出發。

1999 年的首張專輯 The Gathering 便在 goa / psy trance 界獲得廣大的成功,不僅為該團奠定了日後的成功基石,也為無數的以色列電音後進在國際間的發展鋪路。該團最為人津津樂道的,便是超高能量的現場演出,這全拜成員 Duvdev 年少時的重金屬搖滾與龐克背景所賜。

Infected Mushroom 在 2004 年時將錄音室由以色列遷往風光明媚的加州,並在當地張舉延攬人才,先後於該年網羅了吉他手 Tom 與 Erez,2007 年更加入了來自巴西的打擊樂器達人 Rogério。結合了流行音樂的元素,再加上 Duvdev 本身獨特的嗓音,以搖滾樂團的編制震撼了全球各地的 psy trance 與硬地樂迷,也讓該團在當年旋即躍升全球百大 DJ 前十名殊榮,使得 Infected Mushroom 頓時成為各大音樂節的主秀嘉賓,而 psy trance 這種音樂終於也不再曲居於地下,成為年輕人趨之若鶩的流行電音。

2manydjs, Steve Aoki台北公演指定暖場DJ發動2009台北地下派對革命核心人物WaaKao.com力薦2009台灣最佳DJ

Taipei Times:
Taipei Times’ Vinyl Word would be remiss not mention to DJ Spykee, who proved himself to be the best choice as a warm-up for Steve Aoki. No doubt surprising some folks who had never heard him spin before. If you get the chance, go see him work.

WaaKao.com:
Every so often, a person appears from relative obscurity to really do big things in a year. If there was any DJ on the list that skyrocketed in Taiwan’s club scene this year, it was Spykee. By being involved in bringing in big names, Spykee has made Taiwan a destination for overground and underground electro DJs around the world.
