“SpinSpinNYC just dropped a hot new video from the mysterious group Galexi. What seems to be their first release, “Galaxy” is a mesmerizing journey through the cosmos–a virtual reality-like trip through space with some sort of banging rave on a far off planet with a death-star disco-ball and a really cool eclipse of a sun….It’s Bjork meets Sia meets Giorgio Moroder.” via Magnetic Magazine.

“Today, MAGNETIC premieres the video for “Down” off the EP A Piece Removed, produced by Jacob Mroczek and Kristi Gogos of playhouse90…The video, referencing breezy cinematic shifts between images of spring blossoms to ethereal visions of summertime wanderlust, is a first look inside the mind of the SpinSpinNYC wunderkind, Otodojo.”

Otodojo is in Berlin with his brother Zetaohm to showcase their Fluxus One Voltage Sequencer at Superbooth17, a conference for electronic music instrument makers and artists.
Otodojo says, “Adding Fluxus One to your modular is an instantly gratifying experience. It highlights the capabilities of your existing gear, and provides you with a fine precision tool to simultaneously control multiple facets of your modular patch. It will help you to bring more pythagorean musicality into your system, or allow you to embrace utter chaos with its modulation and microtonal capabilities. We have worked very hard to bring a concept to life.
Four channels, sixty four steps.
Each output channel can send one gate, and two CV signals. Each CV output range is 20Vpp. Each pitch output is quantized, and will sequence over a user definable 10V range anywhere within the 20V swing. In a world of analog and digital modules, each with unique CV input requirements, the Fluxus One will allow you to adapt the output voltage to the range of the module you are sequencing. Each channel can behave as an independent sequencer, and can be externally clocked from individually. Per channel settings include step length, clock division, scale quantization as well as input modulation mapping. The Zetaohm Fluxus One is available to project backers, starting at US $575, with an expected delivery of July. After that, it’s expected to be priced at $675.”

“Taking a cue from Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, a publication that features intimate conversations between creative thinkers, we asked two of New York’s rising electronic music producers, SpinSpinNYC’s otodojo (Maro Kariya) and Twin Primes (Omar Ahmad), to record a dialogue about what inspires them to create music and what influences their productions. The artists did just that and then some, exploring politics, life lessons and visualizing the sound of molecules like benzene along the way.
Twin Primes (TP): I first heard your remix of “Says” by Nils Frahm through a friend who is known for being a huge critic.
otodojo (O): I didn’t think that putting drums on top of a piano sequence looping for 10 minutes would lead to such a great connection.
TP: What’s behind the name, otodojo?”
