No doubt there was has been a huge rise in the amount of electronic music being produced over the last couple years. Technology has given anyone the ability to produce a full record in house, promote it and then distribute it to millions for basically nothing. But in the age automated DJ programs, it can hard to depict from the music, where the talent is really coming from, the man or the machine. Party Supplies is a MPC master whose hands-on talent with a MPC is what a electronic musician can deliver in a live performance.
Produced entirely on an Akai- MPC 1000, Party Supplies is one man show who has been making a huge name for himself not only through self promotion and social media but through his live performance, taking this instrument out of the studio and onto the stage. At the end of this past summer, he released the Firecrackers mixtape, a collection of remixes, free to download. The mix tape includes remixes to Arcade Fire, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Fitz & The Tantrums, and Taylor Swift along with original tracks.
He was also featured at Red Bull’s MP Embassy along with drum machine masters Araabmuzik and Jeremy Ellis.
One of the newest additions to Fool’s Gold records, he is set to release a full-length album this summer.
