I’m happy to present my latest Nyteowl songs – TOKYO EP. We pretty much created these songs last summer. Tim was in Tokyo on vacation and I was in Minneapolis – it all came together last week.  But also, last week was a difficult time for Japan and the world. We need to keep Tokyo/Japan and all those affected in our heart and mind and take action to donate $$ if at all possible. While this EP has no direct relation to the recent catastrophic events in Japan, it hopefully it will help us reflect upon the situation often.

Here’s a link to donate to Japan via Paypal

Finally, if you didn’t hear the good news, we’re happy because Juno Records (UK) is going to have a new label “Love Interest Records” and we’re going to be the first artist release via 12″/digi worldwide. We love Juno and are so incredibly thankful. Look for it soon.. the release will be called “Love of Mine” (Original release on “detroit ep”, january 2011).

The Push is a Twin Cities project from Dave Wesley and Casey Borchert.  I met Dave years ago when he ran his sound empire under Sursumcorda (record label and nightclub).  He interviewed me on his radio show and gave me my first release under my MUMRA alias.

Both the Push, and his current solo music (available here under Dave Wesley), really developed over the years into this great sounding deep, dubby club music.   According to the data available on his site, it’s known as “Deep dub techno and deep house based on the principles of sacred geometry”.

The Push, Muladhara 117_4 Session v1

In particular I’m loving The Push, Muladhara 117_4 Session v1 which was released not too long ago in February 2011.  I’m definitely going to play some when I DJ out at Barbette/Red Stag over the next few months.  Perfect to set the mood and eat food.    You can find all the data about it below – check it out.

My Take:

Deep dub techno and deep house based on the principles of sacred geometry hot sex.

Perfect early evening club music.

Aids Digestion and Gestation.
