DarkSunn is back. And that is quite literal. In the last couple of years, he’s been traveling around the world — all throughout Asia, Africa and Europe. What was he looking for? Melange.
The almost-impossible-to-find life and consciousness expanding spice Melange.
To find this substance, you need to be willing to travel the most desolate, dry and vast deserts.
Literally or not quite so. Many lodges. roadhouses and auberges witnessed DarkSunn going through such deserts, leaning over his machinery, looking for that sweet spot between hip-hop and electronica.
Looking to re-invent himself. Growing beats as rare and peppery as Melange, with the conviction of a seasoned wolf. Not having anything to prove to anyone except to his own nature.
“Melange” is now available via Monster Jinx.
Oh, how time flies. Not that we’re complaining. Monster Jinx is about to turn 7 years old and time has given us nothing but wings. Let the celebrations begin, then.
2015 will be a year filled with releases coming from the house of great purple monster and, today, we start by presenting you our news series: “ROXO”.
These will be compilations of originals instrumentals, edits and re-mixes, made by Monster Jinx’s artists [inception: including remixes of Monster Jinx’s artists made by other Monster Jinx’s artists].
For this first volume, we picked tracks by 7 of our artists (#symbolism). But since we have a hole burning in our pocket, we decided to give you 11 new songs. (#symbolismdoesntalwaysmatter).
DarkSunn, Spark, Roger Plexico, OSEB, NO FUTURE, Ghost Wavvves and Nitronious are all featured in “ROXO #1”, showcasing an inverted mitosis between Hip-Hop and Electronica and giving birth to both the best purple “ginga” and the best purple “ginja”.
Oh, and also, you can buy the cassette tape with the product here.
“There is more to reality than meets a normal eye. A powerful energy yet to be unveiled will emerge. To some of us, this power will be clear, like crystal”. - Uknown Author, in Prophecies from the smoke
As a child, Ghost Wavvves detected the presence of a strange energy in the world, an energy that no one else around him could sense, and felt immediately attracted to it. Back then, he was confused, but over time he started to understand how that entity worked and how he could find it. He was obsessed. Today, locked in his dimly lit room, he uses his self-taught space engineering skills to operate a secret machine stolen from a post-apocalyptic anime world in order to create a unique kind of material, simply named by him as “crystal”. During research, he found out that this bizarre and nameless matter, when mixed with black smoke, releases the energy he has been looking for his entire life.
Roger Plexico is a mysterious character and his exact biography is unknown: his nationality or age are mere guesses, because there is no certainty in any of it.
However, throughout the years, some clues started to enforce the mythos and began to relate him to the world of Man.
In the diggin' universe, extraordinaire stories kept coming up - and the most respected dealers and collectors guarantee their truthness. There are reports of warehouses loaded with the most sought off precious gems and holy grails (that are known to be of the smallest quantity available and that exchange hands by unholy amounts of money) to be in his possession, usually in doubles.
