Junk Culture - West Coast

Another random find, Junk Culture also known as Deepak Mantena hails from Oxford, Mississippii. Recently signed onto the Illegal Art label (Girl Talk mantras), Junk Culture is scheduled for an LP release coming out on October 27th.

Very similar to the likes of Javelin, Junk Culture's looptic and sampling style fits right into the Illegal Art label.

The lo-fi ness comes from the widely used hand held sound catcher via tape recorder , making me feel real good about having bought a $2 tape recorder yesterday at UNCW's surplus sale. Hail yah.

According to Luxury Wafer's exclusive - Junk Culture's live show isn't your average beejay kinda of an electronic show. With appearances from Deepak's sibilings, to include his younger brother, Nitin on drums - with a bandesque feel performing live percussion beats along with Deepak's vocals to a series of film clips/visuals looping in the distancia .

Sample for yrselfahhhh, supah freshnas.
