  • Biography Tito Ramsey’s creations are a synergy of aggressive pop, electronica, and soul, often drawing comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Little Richard. His solo show features guitar, keys, vocals, live beat sequencing, recordings of found sounds and spontaneous bodily eruptions. Tito has played shows in London, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona and in many cities around the US. He has shared the stage with various well-known musicians, from The Head and the Heart to jazz great Yusef Lateef. Tito is set to release his third album, Hi Lo EP, in January 2012. Named at birth Erin Ramsey, a family friend from Spain called him “Erintito” (little Erin) and “Tito” stuck. Tito’s parents educated him through an exploratory method of home-schooling, allowing him to learn the piano on his own through improvisation and not forcing him to wear clothing until a very late age. Tito’s family comes from a religious background, as both of his grandfathers were preachers and both of his grandmothers toured the country singing gospel music, but Tito took his own route allowing music to guide his pursuits. In college Tito studied modern jazz and composition, allowing him the opportunity to study with Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, most well-known for writing string arrangements for Marvin Gaye. Since then, he has collaborated with hordes of talented musicians writing music for film and theater, rock bands and a string quartet. But, in 2007, the loss of a dear friend left Tito searching. He focused his energy on exploring new ways to make music, collecting electronic instruments, and honing a new sound. He has seamlessly blended this new obsession with electronica and his older soulful writing. And now he can’t stop dancing.

  • Biography This is the first sound of NO-AGE. Vibrating stones transmitting the last echos of electrified psychic attacks. Now the NO-AGE has begun a void time..... Master Musicians Of Bukkake’s newest record and part of a Northwest trilogy, Marks an evolution from their first record 'Visible Sign Of the Invisible order' (Abduction records 2005). MMOB has now solidified into a 7 piece cosmic psyche force. Like a reverse dark side of the New Age sound, on the Totem series Master Musicians of Bukkake perform ritualistic electric excursions into the outer and inner reaches. Relying more on the electric power of psyched guitars, analog synth chants, and exotic heavy percussion. Totem one echos with the delusions of a West Coast Death cult. Outer spaced Gamelan, dusty fuzz rock from celestial deserts, meditations of a deranged Krishna gathering, and the Blurry acoustic guitar majesty of The Cascade mountains all reveal themselves here in epic form On Totem One. Every sound and note played put to tape by a group with a singular purging purpose....
