Biography

When five friends, djs and music producers, Ooah, edIT, Boreta,
Kraddy, Kitty-D, all noted fixtures on the West Coast's underground
electronica scene, came together one night in an experiment in
collaboration, they opened their laptops, and The GlitchMob was
formed, and with it the birth of a sound that is at once fresh and
familiar.

The Mob deconstructs the standard notions of collaboration,
performance, and genre to create a fully immersive, novel experience
for their audiences. The format of their live shows takes the
convention of a two dj tag-team set and reinvents it by utilizing
anywhere from two to five djs on stage at once who interact musically
more like a jazz combo feeding one continuous stream, each taking the
lead at intuitive moments then threading back into the whole.

No genre is off limits. Their slant - take it all, interweave and
remix it live, add their own sounds and shards, and recompose
everything on the fly. The effect is a sound utterly subversive,
distinctly their own, one that blends the rhythmic accessibility of
hip hop with the big, bassy insistence of breakbeat, all laid out
like digital molasses with a deep, sultry, crook-of-the-finger
yearning that quakes the head, heart, and hips and feels irrefutably
danceable.

So innovative is their expression that in less than a year since
their formation the GlitchMob has caught the attention of some of
the industry's most notable artists, bringing them to headline
alongside Digable Planets, Hank Shocklee (of Public Enemy), Diplo,
Prefuse 73, Richard Devine, Funkstorung, Dabrye, STS9, Tipper,
Modeselektor, Freq Nasty, Telefon Tel Aviv, Zilla, Plaid, and more.

The Mob continues to crisscross the globe with international bookings
at venues and festivals from Coachella to Shambhala to NASA, from
Electric Daisy Carnival to SXSW.
