Primordial undermind (us/aut) (modern psych rock combo)

Eric Arn and Primordial Undermind have tirelessly mined the nether regions
of avant psych-rock for the past 17 years, resulting in a sonically
diverse body of work. Arn began in the legendary Crystalized Movements
with Wayne Rogers (Magic Hour, Major Stars) in the 1980's. Primordial
Undermind has grown and evolved, with a rotating membership typifying the
band, and a restlessness to explore pushing a steady progression from
distorted, psychedelic Nuggets- esque overload to full blown free
instrumental rock and everything in between. Just before relocating from
Austin, Texas to Vienna, Austria in late 2004, the band recorded Loss of
Affect for the Strange Attractors label, producing the most outré document
of the Primordial Undermind sound to date.
"Reverberating with primitive hallucinogenic drones, garage rock grinds
and improvisations that slowly build from half-formed blowouts to cosmic
Stockhausen-style epics... PU have crawled out of the psychedelic
undergrowth and evolved into something special" - Edwin Pouncey (Savage
Pencil), the Wire"underworldy free-rock music...
"Words like trippy and psychedelic were invented for this kind of music,
but they seem inadequate here… try “revelatory” instead" - Jennifer Kelly,
The Undermind is a kind of direct descendant of the big late ‘60s
electronics-powered post- psychedelic ensembles such as Fifty Foot Hose,
but much much better " - Julian Cope, Headheritage

Lowdjo - vs - DJohn (DJ-set exprmtl)

Lowdjo - (I&I/Foton) - drones, beats, breaks and cracks, mashups, booty
bass,.. collected soundz of the univerz, everything is possible.. anything


Lowdjo's Bio

At the early age of sixteen Lowdjo said goodbye to his former punk-rock band to start deejaying at his local radio station in aLOSTa. Mostly listening to indie-rock, post-punk & grunge while collecting a lot of cassettes & cds..

It was only about 7 years later that Lowdjo first deejayed for an audience, vinyl replaced the old cassettes and up until today he's been collecting records and expanding his archive.

After finishing his studies, Lowdjo moved to Brussels, where it all started. Got a dj-gig in the basement of a sweaty jazz-club.. everbody went out of their mind and Lowdjo made his entrance in the Brussels-dj-scene, the year was 2000.

Around that time Lowdjo was exploring the more experimental side of the music spectrum. Using soundscapes, drones & noise in his mix combined with breakcore, elektro, jungle, etc... Then he joined Foton Records who organised the legendary FOtones-nights in Brussels, Belgium and abroad. Next to Foton Lowdjo was also participating in two other collectives around that period, called aLOSTaSOULS and Comphusion.

Deejaying not only in his home town, Brussels but also in a lot of other venues in Belgium and abroad: Chicago, Berlin, Maribor, Rome, Barcelona, Cologne, Amsterdam, London, Orléans, Deringaj (Croatia), Novi Sad...

During this period Lowdjo had the chance to dj and be on the same line-up with a lot of amazing artists. To name a few:

Einstürzende Neubauten, Pole, Peaches, Emir Kusturica & His No Smoking Orchestra, Patric Catani, Koçani Orkestar, Venetian Snares, Dj Rupture, Douster, The Herbaliser, Carlos Giffoni, Jack Dangers (MeatBeatManifesto), Apparat, 65Days Of Static, Karen Constance, Filastine, Alpha Blondy, Chris Corsano & Paul Flaherty & Spencer Yeh, Felix Kubin, Herrmutt Lobby, Seal Phüric, Astrobotnia, Imminent, Subskan, Eat Static,
Dj Ripley, Sébastien Roux, Géographique, Silk Saw, F.S. Blumm Trio, Zu ft. Mats Gustaffson, Milanese, Toecutter, Guido Möbius, Ove Naxx, Hrsta, Vex'd, Drop The Lime, Neil Landstrumm, Flex Busterman, Shitmat, Loefah, Bear Bones Lay Low, and many more...

Now, in 2010.. "Lowdjo takes you on a journey with his ethnic beats extra-ordinaire: Thaï pop, Tropicalia, Syrian Tekno, Cumbia, Iraki Choubi, Balkan bass, all this laced together by a tantalizing mix of contemporary electronix. Lowdjo takes you on a dizzying trip exploring the globe's weird musical heritage."

Lowdjo's also deejaying under different alter ego's, Dj Fiësto for his specialised 'Disco Kids'-sets, Dr. Green Cheese who explores the contemporary 'futuristic hip-hop' scene and last but not least there's Dj SickSickSick, who mainly focuses on dark drones, ambient, noise, psych, ...

"Een dj die zeker het vermelden waard is en zich al even eclectisch als encyclopedisch door menige Brusselse scènes beweegt is dj Lowdjo." Gonzo Circus, 2010

"Elektro DJ -oktopod koji dolazi iz Brisela, Belgija odvešće vas na putovanje sa svojim neobičnim etno bitovima. Za festival Dani Brazila pomešaće brazilske tematske setove začinjene sa tantalovskim miksom savremene elektronike. Lowdjo će vas povesti na vrtoglavi put istržujući najčudnije svetsko muzičko nasleđe." Dani Brazila, 2011.
