The Kerowack sound is a wild ride of electronic excess with rich textures and synth heavy melodies. Kerowack takes tech and funk and mixes them together for your sonic enjoyment.

Biography

Kerowack is electrohaus duo Dan Gerber and Saul Good. Childhood friends in San Francisco, they found their kindred sound in the smoking remains of the UK big beat acid house scene. In 2005 they signed their first single, Dirty Bumf, to UK’s Rip Records and quickly followed up with a funked-out, acid remix of ‘Kolor Spektrum’ by Soul Mekanik. Since then it has been a wild ride of composition, production, remixing indie rock bands, and disc jockeying.

When not working in their basement Manhattan studio, Kerowack can be found doing their live show in intimate neo-rave clubs around the world, consisting of live animals, Russian fuzz pedals, and synthesizers from the 1800’s.

Kerowack’s upcoming 5 track EP is slated for a July 2007 release and features collaborations with Milly Blue (Basement Jaxx vocalist) & Doc Brown (London poet and live MC for Mark Ronson).

Kerowack also run their own imprint, Thunder Finger Records, out of NYC, with the aim to repatriate American dance floors, one small club at a time. The first record released is an international affair: 'Disco Shoes' by the Aussie duo Acid Jacks, enlisting remixers Electrixx from Germany and The Subs from Belgium.

KEROWACK REVIEWS

NAF MONK
In the summer of 2006, Kerowack's 'Naf Monk' found its way into the hands of xjR EUs A&R maven Tommie Sunshine and he instantly declared it the first single for the European launch of his rebirthed label, Xylophone Jones EU. Tommie Sunshine on ‘Naf Monk’…"With their influences worn proudly and unashamedly on their sleeves, Kerowack march proudly into sonic battle, putting lesser men to shame and showing us all how to time travel through multiple moments and styles in a slight 6 minutes. This track is for the music lovers, the ones who appreciate rich textures as well as the kids who just want to get loaded and get their swerve on in the club. Their tracks and sounds unmistakable, their live show undeniable; make way for New York City by way of Kerowack & xJR EU." Naf Monk was released in December, 2006 with remixes by Mark Romboy and Jamie Fanatic. ‘Naf Monk’ received heavy rotation on John Digweed’s BBC Radio Show and is featured on Simian Mobile Disco’s ‘Suck My Deck’ Mix CD presented by Bugged Out!

MET U IN MIAMI
Kerowack made a splash in Miami with their limited pressing of 'Met U In Miami', an electro-mantic ballad which received airplay on BBC Radio One and XM Radio as well as 4.5/5 stars in DJ Mag..."the bassline could come through chemical cleaning and still leave a stain. 'What about the BJs for the DJs?' could become the chant of the summer."

DIRTY BUMF
Kerowack released their debut single 'Dirty Bumf' on Rip Records in 2005, which received a 4.5/5 & Sureplayer review in DJ Mag..."Kerowack are a new signing for RIP, but on this first outing it looks like the pair are going to fit right in. 'Dirty Bumf' is a freaked out instrumental, somewhere between '60s pop, Chicago freak-house and - dare we say it - big beat, it sounds fresh and full of life." 'Dirty Bumf' received heavy rotation on BBC Radio One and was featured in Mylo's Essential Mix as well as Darren Emerson's "Underwater Episode 4" Mix CD.
