Doogatron are inventive disciples of techno and house, creating textured synth-prog jams that blend machine-like precision with the human touch of improvisation.

These 21st century torchbearers of Detroit’s electronic music fuse the old-school analog synthesizers with new-school digital technology. Their debut album comes out November 2nd…

MORE INFO

I know I’ve used the words “electronic music,” but this is not “EDM!” In fact, a lot of it is refreshingly strange! The spontaneity that birthed the project continues to guide them, with that adventurousness drawing them towards eccentric tones, experimental distortion, trance-like percussion and psychedelic atmospheres. Classic early 80’s techno had a bit of a darkness to it, a feverdream-like aura of exploring abandoned factories where the machines are coming to life, or the evocation of entering abandoned elevator shafts and discovering they’re actually teleportation gates. Doogatron captures that! Because they’re explorers…and if it gets weird? Then it gets weird!  Or, as they call it (and I can’t resist): “…machine-funk and synth freakouts.”

Stevie and Kyle were doing improvisational electronic music happenings several years ago, with the former playing bass and the latter mixing samples over sequenced beats. They eventually added Michael on lead/pad synths and started putting up singles throughout 2017. They’ve shared their most exciting creations for this album, though…throwing in additional textures, samples and occasional vocals.

 

This album was “…written, arranged, recorded, produced, mixed and against all advice mastered by Doogatron…” as they say on their Bandcamp page… “…in various basements, bedrooms and living rooms of our homes…” You can pre-order the album here.

The beautiful thing about the kinds of songs that Tanager make are how layered they are… These are guitars that envelop you, drums that pull you, melodic phrases that levitate you (and no, I’m not on drugs as I write this)… Those ethereal traits have always distinguished a Tanager song, a hybrid of coarse distortion

Have We Met?—The Dialogue Between Past and Present

It is heartrending to see that message, reverberated through the past and into the present. Cynics may be tempted to ask, “Have we really made any progress?”. Yet, above the calls of protest and activism, the gallery is also filled with silence, waiting for the viewer’s response to the question, “Will you change it?”

Moore Takes Aim at Both Parties in Fahrenheit 11/9

Flint’s story is essential to the film because it illustrates the power of greed and why corporate money has no place in government. Macroeconomics 101 tells us that corporations are beholden to one thing—their stockholders. Humans do not enter into this equation. How can you have a democracy for the people when corporate money runs the government? You can’t.
