__ D::N :: http://digitalnimbus.com

Digital::Nimbus are proud to announce the debut
3-hour *LIVE* performance of Phoenecia flying in
from Schematic headquarters in Miami, Florida.
Phoenecia also performs *LIVE* for E.L.M.
Conceptions the following night (11/27) alongside
Jega, Otto Von Schirach, 8 Frozen Modules and
RD x Trichome in Los Angeles. A Schematic
giveaway and a pair of tickets for the E.L.M.
event will also take place during the broadcast.
Phoenecia's signature blend of experimental
electro, dub and glitch transmissions are sure to
radiate 1000s of miles from its original source
so prepare for an avalanche of textured electronic
frequencies emanating from the studios of KUCI.
Expect to hear new and unreleased Schematic
audio *LIVE* on-the-air!

Appropriating their name from (probably) the
first culture of the Old World to explore the New,
Phoenecia, aka Joshua Kay and Romulo Del
Castillo, was inaugurated in Miami, Florida, USA
in 1997. Phoenecia's recordings echo the phenomena
in the slow contemplative way the music evolves,
experimental techno rhythms emerging from
strangely glutinous sounding electronic textures.
Initially overtly influenced by Warp Records' duo
of wayward electronica trailblazers Autechre and
the Aphex Twin, Phoenecia received early acclaim
for "Randa Roomet," a superb 12-inch double pack
for the same then Sheffield, England-based label.
On their subsequent self-released album, Kay and
Del Castillo's inspirations were more heavily
submerged and less readily identifiable.

The duo themselves asserted dub - or at least
dub's studio methodology - as their main creative
precursor. Certainly, Kay and Del Castillo draw
from dub's impulse to experiment with noise. The
pair previously recorded under the Soul Oddity
moniker, releasing an album and a series of
12-inch singles for the US major label Astralwerks.
Kay and Del Castillo's subsequent own avant
electronic label Schematic was reportedly initiated
after Astralwerks staff "used the word 'no' too
often" in conversations with the duo. Their Miami-
based label has issued tracks by artists such as
Otto Von Schirach and Delarosa And Asora as
well as Phoenecia remixes by electronic music
illuminati such as Richard Devine, Autechre,
Ectomorph, and Push Button Objects. Kay and
Del Castillo also notably record independently
of each other under the respective alter-egos
of Jeswa and Takeshi Muto. >> E.L.M. >>
