If technology and music are your life, brace yourself- Moldover is about to reformat your soul. Hailed by 700,000 YouTube viewers as "The Godfather of Controllerism", Moldover is a new breed of music icon. Combining the charisma of a rock star, the mad genius of a basement inventor, and the radical inclusiveness of the DIY internet generation, Moldover is "literally throwing away the rule book and ...reinventing the wheel" (Remix Magazine). Witness his balls-to-the-wall live show at a club, experience his multiplayer music installations at a festival, or pick up and play the "light theramin" packaging of his debut album and understand why the next paradigm for music is a one-man-brand called Moldover.
Vinyl Blight aims to breathe life into the Ragga-Jungle sound he grew up on by splicing it with newer techniques and noises. He's had the fortune to work with, remix and be remixed by some fantastic artists, including: Bongo Chilli; Mochipet; Kush Arora; MC Zulu; Liquid Stranger; and Jantsen. Vinyl Blight has been a DJ for over 10 years, primarily in the Ragga and DnB arena, but the past few years have seen the inclusion of Dancehall, IDM, Glitch Hop, Breakcore, and Dubstep. Vinyl Blight has been producing events for 5 years with local crews and tech-art communities in all types of venues, from homes to clubs to warehouses to deep in the woods. Some of the events he's coordinated/co-organized have featured: Hobotech; Lorn; TechDiff; Ill Gates; Splatinum; Shpongle; Liquid Stranger; DFRNT; NastyNasty; Mochipet; Somatic Responses; Sickboy; Droon; Mark N; Kid Kameleon; DJ C; and Dev/Null.
Currently, he's assisting Zebbler and Mistaker with the "No Tomorrow" monthly at Machine, Dabu with the roving local producer showcase "Links", and occasionally Encanti as well, with the "Post Prosperity" monthly at the Tavern at the End of the World. This year he also curated the electronic music stages at the first Figment Boston. Vinyl Blight is responsible for the administration of Vermin Street.
The Serial Krusher was created as a two-headed audio/visual entity in late 2005 in Portland, OR, by Ian Lippincott and Rik Maihos (RIP). It started while experimenting with circuit-bent Nintendo games for use both in the music and live visuals, then moved into mashing up obscure horror and sci-fi movie samples. The sonic styles borrow from elements of 8-bit, drum n bass, idm, dubstep, and breakcore. Rik moved away before things really took off and since that time Ian has VJed for artists such as: Bit Shifter, Nullsleep, Machine Drum, Daedelus, the Flashbulb, Doormouse, Otto von Schirach, and Venetian Snares.
Sadly, Rik passed away in October of 2008 at 28 years old. Ian currently lives in Boston, works as a freelance graphic designer and just self-released his debut EP "A Show of Hands".
