Do you know the code? The illmeasures crew will be gathering at Lava for a monthly transmission of highly sensitive underground beats. The exact form in which they will be delivered is classified. Be prepared to receive and process algorhythms of the funky/tech house, broken beat, and hip hop varieties. illmeasures top operatives Striz, Justin Reed, and Brad Miner will be your contacts to the underground.
Striz has been known to communicate in a highly variable beat structure. Atmospheric conditions, geographic coordinates, and lunar positioning all affect whether he delivers deep downtempo, dance-able jazz breaks, or jacking house beats. This versatility has caused him to be chosen to participate in the transmissions of international operatives like DJ Krush, Quantic, Jazzanova, and DJ Food.
Code named R,
has been a valued member of illmeasures elite underground propaganda force since its inception in late 2000. Previous to this he had disseminated cutting edge sonic intelligence around the the American state of Michigan working with fellow agents such as Claude Young, Dan Bell and Black Nation records. As the new millennium accelerates us towards further states of chaos and confusion, code named R retains his active status working to counteract the forces of soulless mediocrity.
Brad Miner is a highly trained programmer, using very advanced scripting techniques to generate electronic tones and beats. Textural, moody tech-house is the usual result of his programming stratagem, which is guaranteed to move and delight all end users. Refer to his most recent and highly urgent transmission, the "Lights Down EP", available exclusively on Zuvuya Recordings and Beatport.com.
