The Bunker presents Neurotic Drum Band (John Selway & Ulysses) at subTonic
107 Norfolk Street
21+, 10p-4a

While we hosted the debut (only?) live performance of the Nerurotic Drum Band upstairs at Tonic about a year ago, we've never had them join us in the basement for a DJ set, and figured it was long overdue. Ulysses and Selway are two of the most experienced, respected, and talented techno artists in NYC. They also both have awe inspiring record collections that they really know how to use. Born outside of New York City, Ulysses has been DJing since 1991, when he made his start on the radio at WTUL, New Orleans. Since then he's gone on to international stardom as a producer and DJ. He has remixed artists such as Pop legend Arthur Baker, and local rock gods Le Tigre and the Scissor Sisters. He's performed in over 30 countries, such as recent performances in Venezuela, France, and Hong Kong, as well as New York's acclaimed PS1 Warm-Up Series.

John Selway's bio is mind bogglingly long and impressive, so we'll just give you a brief synapsis. Selway has been surrounded by music his whole life, studying violin and piano by age 5. He started working on electronic music at the ripe age of 12, and released his first record by 19. He co-produced records with Oliver Chesler (the Horrorist), BT, Ali Shirazinia, and Scott Richmond early in his career. In the mid-90's, he started the Serotonin record label, putting out tons of dope releases, including the very first Fischerspooner record. He then went on to work with Abe Duque and Christian Smith, touring the globe and earning lots of praise. He is currently very busy with his new label Memory Boy (retro Italo disco), his Neurotic Drum Band project with Ulysses, and many other collaborations and projects that will see the light of day soon.
