Paris DJs Soundsystem presents MRR-ADM Dirty Drums

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents MRR-ADM Dirty Drums

San Diego duo MHE are now known as MRR-ADM. MHE was for 'Machines Have Emotions', while MRR-ADM are the initials of their real names, Michael Raymond Russell and Adam Douglas Manella. All of their releases, between 2003 and 2006, have been on Sound In Color Records' now hard to find CDs, DVD, LPs, 12s or 7s - with only numbers for track names! In 2005 they worked with Heliocentrics drummer Malcolm Catto at Mike Burnham's Tardis Studio in Australia. In 2008 they put out a mysterious red 10 inch vinyl, 'featuring Malcolm Catto', sold out in 3 days, which put them in the spotlight. They've also collaborated with The Gaslamp Killer or Gonjasufi, and are preparing a first full-length recording to be released on Now-Again Records.

The sound of MRR-ADM can be summarized as modern library music with dope beats, sample-based hip-hop psych instrumentals: raw, psychedelic funk & jazz with a focus on dusty drums & bass, and some melodic touches from heavily processed guitars and synths. Dark, experimental and deeply funky, this is just AMAZING music which many rappers should trip on, again and again… Read their interview here for more info while listening to this 30mn selection of their work! And stay tuned for DRUMETRICS, the rebirth of their collective DIRTY DRUMS...
