Stimulus clan is the solo-side project of Jonny G, guitarist in death-funk glitchtronic trio, "lespecial". With field recorded samples, extensive synthesis exploration, and a keen focus on bangin' drum beats, he explores idioms all over the electronic spectrum. Expect to hear his own take on trip hop, drum n bass, and glitch hop. He cites Flying Lotus and Eskmo as huge influences.
Eelko, born Christopher Carchedi, is a live performing artist hailing from Boston who, with his music, blurs the lines between hip-hop, funk, trance, dubstep, and a plethora of many other influences.
Drawing inspiration from a love of avante garde jazz and free form ‘jam’ music, Eelko’s live performances are always fresh and interesting.
Gratefully Deadicated DJ's Grateful Dead music and mix it in a seamless set. Playing the legendary Grateful Dead songs and jams from memorable concerts woven together to create the ultimate and unique Grateful Dead experience. Tracks are chosen from my high quality collection of cds and dats consisting of over 1500 Grateful Dead concerts.
The Carnival Parade began on December 30th of 2005 @ The Knitting Factory as a Mule/Bisco Afterparty. It featured Steve Urban on Laptop/Guitar/Vox spinning remixes of The Grateful Dead along with other popular acts in the jamscene. Rumor has it that Warren Haynes was even in attendance. Jambands.com called it: "A rather unique one-man show which mixes live guitar, vocals, DJ effects, and computer mash-ups." The Philadelphia Weekly wrote, "While the music ranges from rock to jamband to reggae and funk a commitment to a positive socially conscious message forms a common bond. Good people, great music and positive vibes."
In the Fall of 2008 Urban is introduced to guitarist Rob Varkony of Star'69 at a Phil Lesh & Friends Afterparty and begins sitting in with them at weekly jam sessions in the East Village. In 2010 & 2011 Urban performed at a A NIGHT FOR DAVE NOLAN a Benefit Concert at Brooklyn Bowl along side Chris Barron from The Spin Doctors & The Zen Tricksters. The concert was in the memory of Dave Nolan who was the radio host for WBAI's "Morning Dew" and the DJ of The Wetlands Preserve, a legendary NYC rock club. Dave was instrumental in helping the careers of many artists such as Dave Matthews Band, Spin Doctors, Blues Traveler, moe. and Warren Haynes. He was the first person to ever play many of these artists on the radio. Steve Urban became the last in a long line of artists which Dave brought to recognition among the NYC music scene. In 2010, Urban then met accomplished bassist Greg Koerner of Gent Treadly, a friend of Dave's as well. That's the story of how The Carnival Parade (Live Band) was formed... The rest is rock & roll history!
