Austyn Sullivan is a 20 year old self-titled ambient project currently residing in Baltimore, Maryland, originally from Mandeville, Louisiana. Sullivan experiments with murmured vocals beneath the surface accompanied by repetitious melodies which creates a wave of thought and emotion. Sullivan’s music makes for a perfect late night/pre-dawn listening. Over the past year Sullivan has been prolifically creating music in all mediums from atmospheric piano to ambient full-band projects. Sullivan is currently working on a full length album titled Recollections Become Phantoms. It’s a highly textured album of concepts and ethereal sounds. Along side of his self-titled project, Sullivan occasionally works under the stage name Portraits of American Firing Squads and is currently playing drums for Dead Mellotron

PUNCHES Announce Debut EP+Single Free Download

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2010 by dk

Available October 12 On Our Label;
Drop Single “Feeling Right” Online For Free; Grab It Here

Our Label ispleased to announce PUNCHES’ debut release the Sleepless City EP available digitally on October 12th. To inaugurate the release, PUNCHES is making the first single available for free online

PUNCHES – Feeling Right by punchesbk
PUNCHES is the Brooklyn based late night disco project of twin brothers Greg and Darin Bresnitz-who can be found tearing it up as DJ duo Finger on the Pulse-andnightlife pioneer Alan Astor, who got crowds up and dancing with his 2005 solo hit “Fantastic Fantasy.” PUNCHES’ synth littered, airy beats are rooted firmly in the soul filled space between disco and electro. “Feeling Right,” the debut single off their Sleepless City EP, features Astor’s warm, classic-sounding vocals and reveals PUNCHES as a club-ready band that can make it through ’til morning, when you come to in the light of day and reflect on the night you’ve just had. The release of PUNCHES’ Sleepless City EP also marks the inaugural release of Travis Hayden’s (IHEARTCOMIX, Big Beat) newest label, Our Label.

After making a name for themselves both as Finger on the Pulse and with their popular IFC original series Dinner with the Band, the Bresnitz twins found themselves in need of an opening act for one of their many parties. The duo called up Astor, who they had admired since the release of his album “Everything Is Possible” and the rest is history. After that fateful party, the three spent many late nights bonding over a shared love of the city and all it’s nightlife pleasures until one chilly night last December, while driving through a deserted midnight in Brooklyn, PUNCHES was born.

During the winter months, the trio were looking for a way to stay warm and to heat up the city’s dance floors by spinning their records in clubs across the boroughs. They found early success with their first mixtape, Somebody Has to Help You, and first remix, Au Revoir Simone’s “Only You Can Make You Happy.” Almost instantly, the remix went to #4 on Hype Machine, and led to a three week European tour. As time went on the project continued to heat up and this summer they began sharing the stage with such noteworthy artists as Cut Copy, Vampire Weekend, Dam Funk, Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem) and Die Antwoord while performing at JELLY Pool Parties and Converse’s 3 Artists 1 Song event in New York featuring Kid Cudi.

Influenced by the sounds of New York’s most famous dance clubs from Danceteria to Studio B, PUNCHES make fun and engaging music that takes full advantage of Astor’s rich, soulful voice. Anyone who has stayed up just a little too late in NYC (or Chicago or Paris or Tokyo) will recognize the heartbeat of songs like “Feeling Right”-a sparkly, smooth, up-tempo ode to the time of night right when you find your partner for the evening and revel in the moment, together, that place you could stay forever.

Ursula 1000 teams with Fred Schneider (B-52’s) and more on “Fuzz EP” on Thievery Corporation’s ESL Music +Free Download

Ursula 1000 to release “Fuzz EP” on
Thievery Corporation’s ESL Music
Featuring the track “Hey You!” with Fred Schneider

October 5, 2010 (digital)
October 19, 2010 (physical)
Label: ESL Music

Track List
“Hey You!” (feat. Fred Schneider)
“Fuzz 1000”
“Graveyard Stomp”

***Free Download***
“Hey You! (Shake Edit)”
(“Hey You!” spliced with “Shake” by 60’s garage group The Shadows Of Knight)

New York’s Ursula 1000 sets his time machine towards primitive garage punk for his new E.P., “FUZZ!”

Drenched in snarling fuzz guitars, savage drums and spooky organs, this new collection of tracks unleashes his technicolor take on this sound. A pinch of the old and a drop of the new, creating a brand new monster! Inspired by the classics like Count Five, The Sonics and the Nuggets and Back To The Grave collections to revivalists like The Gruesomes, Gravedigger V and The Dukes of Stratosphear, Ursula 1000 takes in this obsession and flips it for a new generation.

“FUZZ” features the inimitable Fred Schneider from The B-52s on the opening song, “Hey You!” Fred and his band paved the way of mixing b-movie surf trashiness and new
wave as does Ursula with his blending vintage grooves with modern electronica, thus making the pairing a no-brainer. This is not pastiche but a re-invention!

Ursula 1000 is the alter ego of Brooklyn, New York based producer/DJ Alex Gimeno. His albums (four artists albums and two DJ mixed CDs) and live/radio mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, bumping latin disco funk, hints of post punk, electro, go go and sleazy glam rock. You can hear it in his remixes for the likes of Quincy Jones, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, Fort Knox Five to a slew of television remodels for themes to Sesame Street, The Powerpuff Girls, The Incredibles and Yo Gabba Gabba. Scenes for Sex And The City, Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother popped even more with a helping of a little Ursula as have campaigns for AT&T, Samsung, Adidas and Grand Marnier.

You can find him traveling the world dj-ing at places like Fabric, The Big Chill Festival, Shambhala or even at his home residencies at Trophy Bar and The Commodore. For a more obscure selection of songs that make him tick, check out his radio show, Guilty Pleasures on

FUZZ is released October 5 (digital) / October 19 (physical) on ESL Music

Shinobi Ninja Release New EP/iPhone App Bundle Today

Posted in News, Promotions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2010 by dk

Brooklyn’s SHINOBI NINJA release iPhone app bundled with new 5 song EP, The Video Game EP, on June 29th exclusively via for $4.99

Fans who buy the EP are given a link to download the free “Live” version of the app with a unique code that unlocks the full version for free.
Fans that purchase in the first two weeks receive a limited edition SN merch care package in the mail.


The iPhone app: Brooklyn To Babylon: Shinobi Ninja Attacks!
Shinobi Ninja Attacks! is like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles meets Double Dragon, with drumsticks and guitars instead of katanas and nunchucks. While the band’s music is bumping in the background, players choose their favorite Shinobi Ninja member and fight their way through the streets of Brooklyn, subway cars, and a massive line at the mythical Club Babylon to rock a show. Along the way players beat up evil hipsters, knock down douchebags from the Jersey Shore, and subdue angry subway riders, as they earn points and treasure.

The game comes pre-loaded with five Shinobi Ninja music tracks, one remix, and two music videos that can be unlocked for free as gamers reach higher levels. Shinobi Ninja Attacks! also rewards fans for making the real world journey to a Shinobi Ninja show. The app uses smartphone GPS capability to locate concertgoers who have installed the app, so they can be further rewarded over-the-air (OTA) with more free music and promotions.

Shinobi Ninja:The Video Game EP
“Blaow!! Straight up in ya face!” Brooklyn’s Shinobi Ninja is on the attack! A six piece diverse collective, Shinobi Ninja is the ultimate fusion of hip urban fashion, tech savvy, and DIY ambition. With their unique bouillabaisse (If you caught the Paul’s Boutique reference, you’ll get where we’re coming from) of throwback hip-hop, punk, reggae, and thrash, Shinobi Ninja crafts party anthems for the touch screen generation, old school hip-hoppers, discerning hipsters and anyone with a pulse.

“To put it simply, they area walking, breathing, and screaming cartoon: Loud, colorful, and full of enough energy to put nearly any other band to shame.”

“Six musicians from all different backgrounds creating a sound that mashes funk, reggae, hip-hop, and punk to create the ultimate party music.” – URB

“Lyrically reminiscent of a house party in Brooklyn circa 1994, the band makes a nod to the old school while remaining in touch with their inner fiesta, fun craving personalities, and un-tethered desire.” – HIP HOP REPUBLICAN

Hot Hot Heat Preview New Album During May
Residency at Brooklyn’s Public Assembly
Future Breeds Out June 8th on Dangerbird Records

Hot Hot Heat’s highly anticipated new album, Future Breeds (Dangerbird Records), hits stores on June 8th but fans in New York can get an early taste when the band begins its May residency at Brooklyn’s Public Assembly. The band opted to do the shows at the venue because of its intimate setting and its close ties to Brooklyn’s thriving indie music scene – a connection that the band feels to be particularly relevant with their forthcoming album.
Future Breeds is filled with the addictive, candy-coated melodies that Hot Hot Heat are famous for, but it also includes some of the band’s most experimental moments yet. Charged with sonic detail, the collection of songs is packed with unconventional rhythms and quirky arrangements. From the dark, carnival-esque feel of “Times a Thousand” to the frenzy of “What is Rational,” Future Breeds balances danceable, pop melodies with an unfettered and musically adventurous spirit.

Hot Hot Heat Residency Dates:

05/05: Brooklyn, NY @ Public Assembly
05/12: Brooklyn, NY @ Public Assembly
05/19: Brooklyn, NY @ Public Assembly
05/26: Brooklyn, NY @ Public Assembly
