|Description:||DESIGNER DRUGS (Brooklyn, N-Y) |
Designer Drugs (Michael Vincent Patrick and Theodore Paul Nelson) lead lifestyles of the rich and famous, but are really just poor boys who love helicopters and pop banger music…and a few other things that will not be noted. Currently, Designer Drugs is releasing new material with Iheartcomix Records. They’ve also been found partying on the couch at the Iheartcomix office.
With one member attending med school and the other drinking whiskey across the globe, to keep from going crazy last year - the DD boys produced over 23 remixes and DJ’d over 100 shows around the world. This year, to keep from going crazy, Designer Drugs is putting the focus on original material while continuing to tour the galaxy and party harder than ever.
Most recently, Designer Drugs released their single “ZOMBIES! / Back Up In This” on Iheartcomix Records with Remixes by Nadastrom, Don Rimini, Le Castle Vania and Bird Peterson. Designer Drugs has also completed remixes for labels such as Kitsune, Dim Mak, Fools Gold, Warner Brothers, Ministry Of Sound, Hail Social, Iamsound, Etc Etc, Coco Machette and Calamity Jane for artists such as Little Boots, The Veronicas, Thieves Like Us, Treasure Fingers, Mariah Carey, Jupiter One, Heart’s Revolution, Mission Control, Hail Social, and IAMX.
Both members of Designer Drugs are mentally controlled by ELLE REX [ www.ellerex.net ] photographer of NYC’s sleaziest and most entertaining electro party - RUFF CLUB. You can find her tagging along to shows, documenting the debauchery that ensues when DD takes the decks. What will happen next? You haven’t partied until you’ve partied with Designer Drugs!

NROTB (Mtl, Cocomachette)
Formed in 2007, Nu Ravers on the Block got the party started and never looked back. This French-Canadian DJ & Producer duo known as Mister Ed and Mr. P were influential in bringing the Nu-Rave/Indie Rock Remix/Banger/House scene to Montreal.
NROTB have been the resident DJ’s for Montreal’s longest running Electro event, known as “I Love Neon”, along with Jordan Dare. They have supported acts such as MSTRKRFT, Moby, Boys Noize, Sinden, DJ Hell, Diplo, and Crystal Castles. They’ve spun in Paris at Le Social, hit the decks in LA at ‘Blow Up LA and Dance’, and brought the noise to ‘Ruff Club’ in New York City. These versatile DJ’s span several different styles of music, but remain focused on playing bouncy, bassline driven bangers with a touch of techno.
On the production end, Electro label Coco Machete released their single, “Take Me Upp” with remixes by Designer Drugs, Math Head, and Dro & Lodzy in March 2009. Their remixes for Fuckkk Off “Rave is King” (Coco Machete) and Designer Drugs “Zombies” (iHeartComix) were also released in early 2009. Their most recent production credits include Miam Miam, N.A.S.A., and Major Lazer, which are setting the stage for their future musical stylings.
They produce at their studio in Montreal with an expansive combination of analog and digital gear. With influences ranging from 90s Rave and House to Kuduro, NROTB craft their sounds with equipment such as the Korg MS-20, Juno 60, MC202, and legendary TR-808 drum machine.
These multi-faceted DJ’s and Producers are also professional graphic designers and promoters as well, introducing artists like Foamo, Don Rimini, Jokers of the Scene, Bang Gang DJ’s, Heartsrevolution, Kap10Kurt and LeCastleVania to the Montreal scene.
Look out for new music and show announcements from Mister Ed and Mr. P in 2009 and beyond.
