Let’s Disinfect (written +LET’S DISINFECT!+)
Bred in the festering swamps of south Florida, Sean Monistat has risen to smash genre conventions or die trying. Composing punk rock and electronic music in equal measure, the release of Korg DS-10 in 2008 allowed him to combine his love for video games with his isolationist desire to wear headphones constantly and compose while others just listen. +LET’S DISINFECT!+ is the natural evolution of Monistat’s days playing dingy basements, woodland fire parties, and trailer raves. Performing his caustically attractive blend of horrorpunk, happy hardcore, and drum&bass , +LD!+ has grinded booties from KY to Kells. Every set unique, his Pulsewave debut will be a pants-off-dance-off for the ages.
CrapHazzard make beep boop music on Game Boys, modern computer’s and other odd platforms.
DJ & producer Decktonic started writing and releasing music after picking up a copy of the KORG DS10 synthesizer for Nintendo DS. Over time he expanded his focus, producing house, dubstep, techno and moombahton with Ableton Live. In the past few years Decktonic’s work has been released on multiple labels and he has also been featured on official remixes for Bright Primate, Auxcide, and the critically acclaimed FEZ soundtrack by Disasterpeace. Decktonic also produced an original song (with Anthony Seeha and the Japanese pop duo FUJIKOMATUNE) for the Namco Bandai anime WONDER MOMO, due to be released on an official soundtrack this year. Decktonic is constantly exploring his unique style of retro-inspired ‘dance music from the future,’ and he can’t wait to share it with you.

Grace Jones in Boomerang (1992)
OH MY GOD, I loved this scene. I can’t believe whoever was watching me at the time let me watch this movie at all. I barely understood what was going on but this cracked me the hell up. She is in a meeting about making her signature perfume and they say the word “Essence.” She becomes outraged, takes her panties off and rubs them in that guy’s face yelling “THIS IS ESSENCE.”
See this turtle? She weighs more than I do! Her name is Hiwahiwa (Hee-wa-Hee-Wa), she’s 212lbs and she lives in Oahu, Hawaii. She likes to chillax at Laniakea Beach on the North Shore of Oahu and you can tell her apart from the other giant turtles by the damage on the top of her shell.
Oh met this one and Brutus when I was there last week! Basically the older turtles eat a bunch of algae all morning and then hoist themselves onto the beach to sunbathe while in a food coma.
