a prep and a primer, re: CHROME CITY. From the Files of Lexcorp.. CC’d Weyland-Yutani, Cyberdyne Systems, Ltd., Tyrell Corporation, LLC.

Chrome City in general is an attempt to create new forms of art from the ethereal husks, the ozone laced residue of the retro-future, and to stitch new works, new possibilities from the light lines streaking off time warping deloreans. It’s not just a “retro party”; the intention is to create something new while acknowledging everything that made us who we are.
Chrome City 2: No, New York, is both a conscious effort to vibrate away from the stagnancy of relying on Big Brother to validate us (in more ways than one, this time specifically New York City and it’s relationship to Philly, as well as in an Orwellian sense–see what i did there?) So, we’re saying “NO” to New York, but we’re also bigging up; we can’t front: the pre-Guiliani graffiti scrawl of a gang ridden late ’70s and ’80s NYC is ultimately enticing. Besides, “No New York” is the name of a seminal no wave compilation that informs much of the underground today. But aside from a raw play on words, we’re looking to bridge the ever widening gap of the forward movements that took place downtown from 1977 to 1984– go-go boys, voguers, bboys, art fags, drag queens all clash with the mandroids, bio-morphs, replikants and blade runners alike– to the post internet everything world of today. Is it possible to simultaneously dis something and pay homage to it? Pour in those 1.21 gigawatts of ill base, no wave noise, and insurrectionist afterfuture cyber speak, then hop in the delorean and find out.

“The earth owes me nothing. I owe the earth.”– Vinne Paz

SWARM
To fellow queer super-heroes, wanderers, listeners: when they danced, i held up my fist to attract lightning i was an antennae for god, just there, present. i couldn’t hear drums and voices, i made no notes in my moleskine, i didn’t strain for lyrics or “meaning”. I just was. There was just soul opening, movement, rage, honor, and meditation; my heart was a queer spire and every “-ism” and “-phobia” fell away, I was.

THE DAQUAN
Alien alert! Sci-Fi seamstress, weaving wild tales channeled from the divine ether, this wordsmith speaks to cosmic minutiae populating the other’d dimensions with pure verbal acrobatics over futurist beats ringing clear like breakbeats pounded out on Cybotronian lunch tables.

MOOR MOTHER GODDESS
What is EDM to the mother of Moors? What is a punk rocker to one who casts spells? A mere beat-maker to a shaman? Then an emcee to a Goddess? The good in all these things, the fire and the noise

GOODNIGHT STARS GOODNIGHT AIR
Like fireflies rising through cracks in cement, a tree birthed in ruins of a long forgotten warehouse, GSGA gives us blissed out drone pop, from pennsylvania’s industrial north.

EX BY V
Roiling chaotic drums, lascivious bass, strange experiments and, above all, complete frenzy, collude to bring us this meddlesome twosome. Wild, focused and free

MARLO REYNOLDS
Blue flame. When you see the blue flame, meditate on the blue flame. A fool in your life acting up? Blue flame: fool is gone.

SEE THROUGH GIRLS
Some how, after days of bashing and wailing, through a maze of broken string and apoplectic tantrum, this amalgam of pre-calculus homework, dizzy punk and robot rebellion is finally punk and ready to tear off heads.

TRIANGULLUM
sound, digital collage/video, textile, object design for a new future, diasporan design, and speculative fashion to create a container for mind-transformation, subversive de-colonization, and ancestry communication.

SHANE JENKINS
The anthropomorphic sprite of a 100,000 words of light, unveiling a sonic journey through the afterfuture.

DJ AURA
Kinetic Kemetic sound blender, the rare dj who’s mixes are as meticulous as they are boundary pushing, as tight as they are genre bending, and as freaking nasty/fun as they are curated!
