Despite only splitting up a matter of months ago, Viva Brother have returned and relaunched themselves as new act Lovelife.
The band have posted three new tracks online, all of which you can hear by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
The tracks, which are titled 'Brave Face', 'She Makes It Look So Easy' and 'Love Rush', are a far-cry from their former guise as a rock band heavily inspired by 1990s Britpop, with that sound replaced with a slow, synth-led pop sound, more akin to the likes of Hurts and Yazoo.
“Is that a time machine?”
Clearly, it’s not, but nonetheless they’re asked this at nearly every Infernal Devices show as they place the Phenomatron on stage. It’s the centerpiece of the live show and it certainly looks like a time machine would - a large wooden box with sprawling pipes, an array of colored lights, and a giant lever, all perched on a tripod of iron supports. When the beat starts pumping, the Phenomatron springs to life, and the stage is awash with color and sound.
Rx, a Philadelphia-born, Brooklyn-based DJ, mixes inspiration from the underground of his hometown and the global scenes of New York, London, Detroit, and Kingston. In his deep and atmospheric cuts, or his high-energy bangers, Rx blends elements of dub, dubstep, hip hop, and techno, bringing quality, forward-thinking music to sound systems worldwide.
In 2009, the underground anthem, “Malt Liquor” hit pirate radio stations around the globe. A collaboration with Chae Hawk, the cut was rinsed by dubstep don Plastician and featured on the “Dubstep LA: Embrace The Renaissance Vol. 1,” the first rap/dubstep crossover mixtape.
2010 has been a prolific year for Rx:
Subdepth Records(UK) released two EPs, “New Years Day” and “Kaleidoscope Island”.
“Bumble,” a genre-bending, bouncey banger came out on Nightshifters (Berlin).
“Let It Spray,” a grimey East-meets-West Coast collaboration with LA-based rapper,
Mestizo, was released on Seclusiasis (Philly).
“Concussions,” a rap meets dubstep EP released on Abstract Logic Recordings (Atlanta).
In 2011 he produced an album for Philadelphia rapper DaQuan called “The W.A.R.: Warrior Art Rebel,” released a collaboration EP with DMC world champion DJ Shiftee “Space Ace,” and remixed NYC artists Hooray For Earth, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire and The Death Set.
Other Rx remixes include Jupiter One, A Place To Bury Strangers and French Horn Rebellion. His debut full length album is out now on Made In Glitch.
No sub woofer will be safe from an Rx party.
