Pre-forth jam this Friday we bring it close to home with two brothas from around the way. Kimyon + Bruce Tantum
Kimyon is owner and operator of The Muvment, a New York based music and art production-company. The Muvment is responsible for the Tru Skul, Arts Industria and Pockit Rockit event series.
His New York residencies have included Lotus, Piano's, Avalon, The Cabanas @ The Maritime Hotel, Hiro, APT, and LOVE NYC, Bungalow 8, and Santo's Party House. Kimyon has made international DJ appearances in The Dominican Republic, Belgium, Macedonia, Greece, and Thailand, and nationally in Los Angeles, Detroit and Miami.
Kimyon has curated and shown in multimedia openings at Pablo's Birthday Gallery in Tribeca featuring fine art, performance art and strong music elements. Currently curating at Paloma in Greenpoint Brooklyn. Kimyon is the current resident DJ at The Danger Parties based in Brooklyn. He has also shown in the Husdon Art Walk and in the Brik Gallery in Catskill, NY.
DJ Bruce Tantum has been involved in the downtown NYC music scene for a long-time – so long, in fact, that he and his no-wave minimalist-pop band Moot were regular fixtures at such long-defunct legendary venues as the Mudd Club, Danceteria and the Peppermint Lounge. The band’s spectacular non-success led Bruce to toss out his bass guitar and pick up the Technics; he soon began spinning a mix of oddball disco and early house. Since then, he’s played at pretty much every club, lounge and scuzzed-out basement and warehouse that the city has to offer, as well as in London, San Francisco, Chicago, Switzerland and Belgium, as well as on Brooklyn Radio and East Village Radio. By day, Bruce can usually be found chained to his desk, toiling away as clubs editor for Time Out NY magazine.
