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.
