Marijuana Deathsquads is the ever-evolving, experimental project lead by Ryan Olson, (producer/writer of POLIÇA and GAYNGS), Isaac Gale, and Stefon Alexander (P.O.S). With multiple drummers, a slew of electronic instruments, and highly effected vocals, their live shows are a violent onslaught of improvised yet tightly woven, jagged, intricate experimental sound.
Born and raised in Minneapolis MN, Andrew Broder has dedicated the better part of his thirty-plus years to carving out his own singular path in music. Andrew has spent time as a cutting and scratching hip-hop battle DJ, a snotty punk rocker, a challenging and thoughtful improviser, soundtrack composer, working sideman, producer, remixer, beat-maker, poet, brutal noise-monger and above all a fearless, restless and provocative songwriter.
His work is a study in surprise and defying expectation. With his records as Fog, he re-defined the turntable as a compositional tool, and his contributions since to avant hip-hop, electronic music, rock, jazz and metal have been equally engaging, and envelope-pushing. His lyrics are cutting and evocative, his melodies poignant and tart, and his curiosity leads him to unexpected juxtapositions in sound and image. In whatever genre or medium he works, he strives to take the listener somewhere they have never been, or make them more keenly aware of somewhere they already are.
Inside the hive-mind of US producer Taskforce, there’s a cacophony of sounds, memories and ideas: of listening to Throbbing Gristle and Aphex Twin, and then channeling it all into the tedious (then euphoric) motions of learning how to use Fruity Loops while still in middle school. He calls his sound “Timbaland on 1200mg of DXM making techno,” and it shows. It’s not just a “bedroom” endeavor, though: he’s produced beats for experimental NYC rapper Le1f and Fade To Mind’s Nguzunguzu have remixed him. In 2015 he’s been invited to participate in the Red Bull Music Academy in Paris.
