Dynasty Electrik’s Morning on Fire, an ethereal dream-pop masterpiece, is out now!
Dynasty Electrik is an electro-rock duo from Brooklyn, NY. Since their inception, the group has earned critical praise, had their music featured in television and film, and toured the world on the strength of their unique blend of DJ, rock and electronic folk pop. Their newest single “Morning on Fire”, produced by Tony Grund, is a dream pop masterpiece. It’s their first release with SpinSpinNYC.
“In the Spring of 2015, Dynasty Electric released “A Million Words of Love”, a collection of love songs and ballads written and recorded in a mountain cabin in Brevard, North Carolina. “Unlike our previous works, this album was written completely on acoustic guitar, so that sound is really at the heart of things. There’s an electronic element here too- drum machines, synths, and theremin. We call this music electro-folk . “A Million Words of Love” comes on the heels of their Summer 2014 hip pop single “Raw Honey”, which generated a buzz with Save-the-Bees activists.
The group’s history began with an electro-punk single “Hypnotized” that received critical praise from the Village Voice and was featured in an MTV commercial starring the band. Dynasty Electric then worked with hip-hop mogul Damon Dash who paired the group with legendary producer Ski Beatz for the album “Golden Arrows“, the lead single of which became the soundtrack for a Victoria’s Secret commercial. The album was also cited by iHeartRadio, NME, and RCRD LBL.
The group’s follow up self-titled album featured the single “Electric Love“, with guest artist Brian Chase of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, as well as tracks with DJ Logic, David Maurice, and Ski Beatz. The album received praise in NYLON, We are Hunted, and Black Book. The album’s second single “Eye Wide Open” aired on MTV2’s 120 Minutes and was used as the soundtrack for a national Bath and Bodyworks commercial. In 2013 Dynasty Electric collaborated with Indaba Music, a social network for musicians and producers, to create a new album “Euphoria“, an international collaboration between the band and fans. The lead single “Supersonic” was licensed for use on the Microsoft Surface.
Over the years, Dynasty Electric has toured Japan, Taiwan, Canada, the Dominican Republic and all over the United States. Some notable past gigs include direct support for Girltalk, Paul Oakenfold, and Atmosphere at Summerfest 2010, 2011 & 2012, tours with the Meat Puppets and Curren$y, dates at the Bowery Ballroom, Gramercy Theater, Webster Hall, Joe’s Pub, Brooklyn Museum, Tribeca Grand Hotel, Santos Party House, SXSW, CMJ, PEX, DBMC, Burning Man, Burlington Jazzfest, Tinderbox Fest, Connecting For Change, Unicorn Meat’s Surreal with Moby & RJD2, Free Spirit Gathering & Unifier Festival with Phutureprimitive.

This track will remind you of Vangelis’ work in Blade Runner. A futuristic auditory journey to free your senses from the chaos around you. Twisting, saw wave themes ground you as synths and bass take you to unchartered territory.

As a rookie producer (and new signing to SpinSpinNYC) with interests ranging from instrumental hip hop to minimal techno, Maro Kariya has been hesitant to define himself in any particular genre. Being heavily inspired by artists from an array of genres, such as John Frusciante, RRose, Nujabes, Trentemøller, Tinman, and Baumfreund, Maro has found that to constrain his sonic-self to a particular genre is not possible. Like how every molecule in a human body is cycled every six months, Maro’s ‘own sound’ is dynamic: being broken down, and built back up through each production.
In 2013, Maro created OTODOJO (translated to English from Japanese: “sound place for learning”), an environment to explore his own sonic-self without the constraints of a particular genre.
Maro’s first productions through OTODOJO were minimal, with a rusty, industrial essence. Maro’s inclination towards developing these early sounds were partly derived from growing up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn: a previously crime-struck, drug-ridden, barren post-industrial neighborhood (a now unmistakeable landmark for hipsterdom, art, and a model of gentrification in New York), and also from his experience in Japan during and after the 2011 Great Tohoku Earthquake.
Shortly after developing OTODOJO, Maro began his doctorate degree in Chemistry. Naturally, his productions began to incorporate inspirations from his studies and research and he began to apply principles he learned in the lab to music.
Maro is currently developing an array of sounds derived from spectroscopic data in order to accurately define the sound of molecules while developing a live set devoted to auto-generative textures and drum patterns.
Continuum by Otodojo, is slated for late summer 2015 release on SpinSpinNYC.

“Among the late night Brooklyn streets a smoke grey haze drifts past a yellowing moon. Cats and water towers perch on rooftops. The neighbors are having a house party. I know because I can hear their wine glasses, and cackles. It’s been too many days with little to no sleep, but my studio monitors blare the loud blasts of deep house bass from my second story window. The moonset, have you seen it? Witness it’s magic and let the music be your guide.”
