Andy The Doorbum And Justin Aswell Intent on Limited Edition LP
Andy the Doorbum is a musician and visual/performance artist originally from Charlotte, NC though he has recently resettled in Los Angeles, CA. He has been recording, performing, and touring under his nom de plume since 2005 in a wide array of incarnations and styles. During this time he has released five full length records, as well as several splits and EPs, ranging from experimental low-fi weirdness to lushly orchestrated musical pieces.
Lyrically he tends to tap into personal experiences and thoughts that often embody raw and visceral subject matter that reflects sentiments ranging from uneasiness to cathartic honesty. He has toured throughout the US and parts of Europe playing everything from abandoned basements to world music festivals where he has presented his music in various forms from solo acoustic sets, to full ensembles, to choreographed performance pieces more akin to theater productions than musical concerts. He believes in art at all costs and lives by his credo: "Life is a war. Art is the weapon. Create or Perish."
Justin Aswell is a multi instrumentalist, DJ and producer based in Charlotte, NC. Justin is one of the world's top Finger Drummers on Native Instruments' Maschine. His YouTube videos have reached over three million views combined. He's currently the head Maschine instructor at Dubspot Online and the curator and DJ of Knocturnal.
The first, hopefully of many official collaborations from these two seasoned artists, Intent is comprised of eight tracks of avant garde hip-hop production, lyricism and showmanship. Each of these artists is a theatrical showman in their own right, but the combination of the two creates a hybrid that defies boundaries. Intent comes out on limited LP format only via Fake Four Inc. in May 2016.
