Conspirator releases new track, announces fall tour dates

Conspirator, the live electronic brainchild of Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits and their new partner Chris Michetti, is set to hit the road again this fall. Armed with an arsenal of slamming new electro songs, the trio will welcome superstar drummer KJ Sawka (PENDULUM) to the tour for the first six shows before passing the baton to Conspirator regular Mike Greenfield of Lotus.

Conspirator has been hard at work in the studio, working on a slew of new tracks inspired by the current styles of popular electronic music, embracing the sounds popularized over the last few years. “Feed the Wolf,” the first installment from a batch of new original tracks, is out this week on SoundCloud with new singles to be released bi-monthly through the fall. At 128 BPM, it combines elements of Electro and Dutch House, but still retains an original edge that is always present in Conspirator's music.

As well, they have been cutting their teeth in the remix game, currently working on official remixes of 12th Planet, Porter Robinson, Zed's Dead, Vaski, and TimBerg/Avicii with many more to come. The release of these remixes is expected to begin this fall, concurrently with the release of the original material.

Marc and Aron are currently among the headliners of the IDentity Festival, performing with The Disco Biscuits. The experience has them touring the nation with hot electronic artists such as Rusko, Kaskade, Pretty Lights, and Steve Aoki. Once the 18-show amphitheater tour concludes at the Gorge in early September, they will immediately start preparing for the 3 week Conspirator Fall tour, which brings them from the Mid-West, through their native Northeast and finally down South to Langerado Music Festival in Sunrise, FL before closing the tour with a stop in Charleston, SC. This will, ironically, bring Conspirator back to where they started festival season, having played the sold out Ultra Music Festival in Miami last March. It has been an exciting year for Conspirator, having made stops at such illustrious electronic music festivals such as UMF, Nocturnal (Texas), Electric Forest, and Camp Bisco 10, which was hosted by the Disco Biscuits and reached a sold out, capacity crowd of 25,000 people.

Keep your eye out for Conspirator as they bring their newest sounds into your town this fall!

The Disco Biscuits Release Latest Studio Album – Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens

Released exclusively at Camp Bisco as the gates opened on Thursday, the Disco Biscuits' latest studio album - Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens - features the studio incarnations of many of the group's live show fan favorites in addition to some of the band's latest material.

Advance copies of Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens were sold to eager fans as they waited in line to enter the sold out Camp Bisco X. Copies were available throughout the weekend at the festival merch tent and at meet and greets with the band members. The band’s annual, 3-day, namesake festival saw a maximum capacity crowd of 25,000 on hand to witness the surprise release, which served to commemorate 10 years of Camp Bisco.

Fresh off of a high-energy tour in the fall of 2010, The Disco Biscuits recorded Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens in short order at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA with Grammy Award-winning producer Phil Nicolo, whose credits include projects with Billy Joel, Yoko Ono, Bob Dylan, Aerosmith and Dave Grohl. In contrast to the 3-year Planet Anthem album process, the band committed to finishing their latest release in just two weeks last November. The album was produced by The Disco Biscuits with additional production by Twisted Records’ Benji Vaughan.

By entering the studio on the heels of a powerhouse tour, the Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens album sessions were a return to The Disco Biscuits’ live roots. The result is an album that feels as eclectic and energetic as one of the band’s signature live shows. The tracklist – which is a collection of the group’s live show fan favorites in addition to some of the band’s latest material – is a further testament to this concept.

The album art, including a poster insert, features “mug shots” of the band, their management, crew, friends and fans. The photos were taken by Jesse Borrell and his NoCoast.tv colleagues, who also had access to capture the experience of the album recording sessions in a documentary. Backdrops were set up at Denver’s Ogden Theatre as well as at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre to capture the photos during the 3-day Colorado run over Memorial Day weekend 2011.

Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens is now available in high quality 320 kbps mp3, flac, or Apple lossless for only $4.99, and is available for free in 128 kbps mp3 at discobiscuits.com. The album is also available on iTunes.

Marc Brownstein Announces His First Full Length Production Project

Marc Brownstein, best known as the bassist for The Disco Biscuits, has a new project that has been making waves in other circles of late: he’s produced the entirety of McKenzie Eddy’s forthcoming album. “Retrograde,” the first single and video from her Brownstein-produced solo album, is currently available for free download as part of her mixtape, “A Prelude to My Next Excursion," which was just released and features Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, Nicole Wray, and Stalley.

With the "Retrograde" single seeing coverage from established hiphop outlets such as HipHopDX, HipHopSite.com, and others, the full length album is sure to have high visibility.

Download “A Prelude to My Next Excursion” here. Watch the “Retrograde” video here.

Eddy’s full length debut solo album, produced by Marc Brownstein of The Disco Biscuits in the Biscuits’ own Diamond Studios in Philadelphia, is scheduled for release in April. Studio production, in a variety of genres, is not new hat to Brownstein – but Mckenzie's album will be the first full length album produced entirely by Marc. The album, which also features vocals by the Platinum selling R&B singer Nicole Wray, features the beautiful and soulful storytelling of "the Baby Face of Hip Hop,” as Eddy was called by Elle Magazine this year.

The album, untitled as of yet, is slated to be one of four initial releases on the BiscoRoc label, a joint venture between the Disco Biscuits and Roc-a-Fella founder, and current BluRoc Records owner, Damon Dash. Other projects expected to be released this year on the label include the Disco Biscuits' mixtape, "SkiBeatz vs. The Disco Biscuits," which will also feature Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, and Stalley, in addition to Jay Electronica, Mos Def, the Cool Kids, and Jim Jones of the Diplomats rapping over remixes of TDB's "Planet Anthem" and Ski's "24 Hour Karate School," as well an all original, full length, hip-hop album entitled "BiscoRoc."

In addition to her Brownstein-produced solo album, McKenzie Eddy will be very busy in 2011. In early March, Eddy and Curren$y will co-star in the “Muscle Car Chronicles,” a musical short film and album inspired and produced by Sean O'Connell, executive produced by Damon Dash, and directed by Coodie and Chike of Creative Control. The “Muscle Car Chronicles” will be distributed by Def Jam Records.

Brownstein is currently on a six-week tour of the nation with his electronic side-project, Conspirator, which will make stops at the House of Blues in LA, the Congress Theater in Chicago, the Gramercy Theater in NYC, and the world famous Ultra Music Festival in Miami.

Disco Biscuits @ Boulder Theater | 1/13 & 1/14/2011

The Disco Biscuits are an entirely different band today than they were when they first broke out of Philadelphia in the mid-90s. That’s not to say that they’ve abandoned their foundation, switched gears or set sail for distant shores. The Disco Biscuits are still very much the pioneers of “trance- fusion,” bridging the gap between electronic music and jam bands. They still remain rock pioneers whose soul belongs as much to marathon dance parties as it does to live improvisational journeys. They still employ emerging technologies to help them create music that is 100 percent human although, perhaps, not entirely of this earth.

For more than a decade now, Biscuits fans have followed the band from show to show, religiously if not obsessively, because they know that every performance is a once-in-a-lifetime event. The band tirelessly explores every possibility with their songs by performing them in entirely different ways every single time. They’ve even been known to “invert” various composed sections, turning a tune on its head to see what might fall out of its pockets.

Dont miss these two intimate shows at the Boulder Theater which will be sure to sell out quickly.

The Disco Biscuits Unveil "On Time" Video

The Disco Biscuits have just released video for “On Time,” a breezy and infectious electro-pop anthem from their latest album, Planet Anthem. This new video, which made its debut  on MTV2 and MTU, was directed by Noah Rappaport and Ghost Town Media. It follows the sexual escapades of a skinny disco robot on a wild night on the town.Planet Anthem, which was released on March 16th, debuted at #140 on the Billboard Top 200 and #5 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart.



On the new album, The Disco Biscuits break out of the jam band-meets-electronica sound they have been known for.  This time around, they’ve opted for danceable pop and rock grooves, plus a touch of hip hop thanks to collaborating with producers Don Cheegro and Dirty Harry (Ludacris, Chris Brown, Beanie Sigel).



The Disco Biscuits also recently announced the lineup for the two annual festivals they put on.  Bisco Inferno will take place on May 29th at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison, CO.   In addiction to the Biscuits, headliners include The Glitch Mob and The Crystal Method.  Camp Bisco 9, the band’s ninth annual three-day music and arts festival, will be held in Mariaville, New York from July 15-17th.
