Chaka Benson grew up on a diverse diet of Philly music ranging from Schooly D to Sun Ra. The Philly streets thrum and echo with improvisation and DIY spirit. This simple aesthetic informs his music and artistic approach. The sound from his modular synthesizer is ever-evolving, changing over time, layered, a challenge to pin down and always rewarded! His legendary live performances are well known on the experimental electronic music scene. Each performance has a new patch specially prepared for it and a new improvised set is performed each time. https://cmbperformance.blogspot.com/?m=0

TimAdri is a live gear music duo made up of Chanski and Your Grace Adrianna Natalie who perform electronic music with sounds penchant towards Techno, Acid, and experimental. Chanski is a veteran follower in the NYC underground Techno scene and a local resident DJ for many well known events held by Erratic, Aphotic and Twice As Proper. He has released an EP from the Brooklyn-based vinyl-only imprint "Monday Off". Your Grace Adrianna Natalie, also know as Acid Whore, is a devotee of club music since 2002 – house, techno, acid, post-punk as well as more experimental sounds – she fell into production naturally from her interest in electronic music in 2018, and her experience behind the boards show a budding young talent making an impact on the hard, nasty end of the techno spectrum, with lots of hardware additions to her studio contributing to the grit of her sound. Signed to the experimental electronic label Alrealon Musique for her debut EP, a startlingly contemporary take on the industrial, noise, and techno crossover sound now dominating Europe and rising in America’s underground. Their unique individual sounds complement each other so well that when combined together they create magic in their live performance. Enjoy these two talents combined as one. https://soundcloud.com/chanski https://m.soundcloud.com/yourgraceadriannanatalie
Vampÿrates with Reg Bloor
"just some hints at 'the mysterious mixed blood or the sanguine stew of our sources', both stolen & unburied (animal, mineral, vegetable & human, flesh ~ voices & sonic bites, spanning centuries of living creatures, from the exotic to the rare, screams & beastly howls, cries of murder & raging indictments, ritual & revolt, hypnotic hymns & piercing rants, savage litanies & soothing incantations, woven in a rhythm bed of loopy pulses & deeply entrancing throbs, the Vampÿrates' bloody mixology of music is a dense dark spell of layers, both organic & electronic, stirring & unnerving, that may send chills up your spine as you prepare yourself for the double-fanged pierce of pleasure."
