"Pork Tartare reviews brian botkiller"

“Mixing deep tribal beats with inorganic blips and beeps, brian botkiller aims to create a sense of music within multiple layers of effects and melody. And it works. Hailing from the digital world of New Mexico (Sure, maybe not as big as Detroit's house scene and all but...), botkiller fills the space needed to keep dance floors happy while aiming to fill the space in your brain with open thought. Lots of good stuff here and one of our favorites – we imagined a lot of the tracks for sultry movies...and no, not the ones starring Mandy Moore. Keep your ear to the ground for this one, or better yet, get in touch with him and wrangle some of his stuff – it's totally worth it.”
Favorite Track, "sky"
Rubbing Elbows with: Orbital, Future Sound of London, Roni Size

"Review by DJ GleecraftGirl"

”These are the artful sounds that fill our untapped needspace for a mechanistic but nonetheless soulful forum for dreams and inspiring free thought.
There is an ancient but modern feel that is unclassifiable/ definable, and somewhat reminiscent of Pete Namlook.”

Bio

brian botkiller is and electronic musician, promoter, producer and performer from Albuquerque, NM. Born and raised in the arts and music scene, brian's sound is like nothing you'd expect from most electronic musicians. A multi-multi-instrumentalist playing and programming drums, keyboards, synths, bass and vocals, brian is also the drummer for the nationally-known Industrial act Diverje and Punktronica act Vertigo Venus and many other projects. brian is a studio musician with over ten years of experience and a working musician in the New Mexico music scene.

brian's sound is like that of electronic dance legends Underworld tossed in a blender with Miles Davis, KMFDM and the punk rock sensibility of the Talking Heads. Top off with a bit of live art-jam visual projections and propaganda, and you have a concoction to get a room moving. Will it blend? Oh yes, it will.

Wait, did he say art jam? Yes, he did. Working with Video Jockey and visual propagandist, creator and image manipulator Mediapathic, brian botkiller's live show consists of an audiovisual explosion on your eyes and ears. Your feet and body will follow, and you'll be moving.

brian is one of the hardest working men in electro. Lots of electronic "bands" play a few shows a year; brian plays upwards of 70 a year. Raves, Festivals, Bars, you name it, brian will rock it. This isn't another DJ on two decks - this is LIVE electronic music. Live keyboards, live re-looping, live vocals. This is the future of music altogether.

As a promoter in the live electronic music scene of New Mexico and the Southwest, brian has seen over ten years in the scene and the music that comes with it, and isn't stopping anytime soon. He's been voted best in New Mexico at what he does, and has worked with some of the biggest names in underground electronic music, such as En Esch (Slick Idiot, ex-KMFDM frontman). This is Intelligent Dance Music for the true faithful; more real than anything on the radio, and more fun than any average band. Hear the future, now.
