Five artists have formed a collective to try and shake things up on the stage and dancefloor and stand united as the ‘DJs Are Alive’.
With the rising use of laptops and digital files there is a common perception that live dance music and DJing the visual aspect of watching the artistry at work is losing its excitement. Five artists have formed a collective to try and shake things up on the stage and dancefloor and united are the ‘DJs Are Alive’. The group is formed by The Scumfrog and features dance music heavyweights D:Fuse, Static Revenger, DJ Skribble, and Kristine W. The act will unveil its live show this February in New York City and at the Winter Music Conference in March, but The Scrumfrog is clearly very excited by the project:
“It has been a long time since I’ve been this excited about a musical project. With remixing getting less challenging by the day, and underground dance music still losing ground in clubs throughout the US, I was looking for a new challenge and found it with DJs ARE ALIVE.”The group will play “mash up” versions of classic club tracks and their own material with the aid of 2 complete onstage DJ rigs, drums, percussion, guitar, keyboards, sax, FX, and an iconic female vocalist (who also plays an impressive array of musical instruments). You can watch Kristine W’s first ever DJs Are Alive rehearsal here.
The band has already produced their first single ‘Gimmie Some Love’ which will be realesed in the stateside Spring on Effin Records. Adding rockstar flavour to the stage this group are bringing something fresh to the table.
