The Siege – Zama (WAAM-03) Available TODAY

August 23, 2016 at 3:51 pm


Third times a charm, so it has been said. The Siege returns for number three in We Are All Machine’s catalog and this dog hunts. WAAM 03, Zama, finds the Siege exploring the psychedelic frontiers of modern dance. With 3 representing creativity, optimism, and renewal, it has become illuminated, in retrospect, that the Siege was subconsciously driven to birth these three tracks about time travel, rejuvenation, emotional exhaustion spurred by creation, loss, overexertion, and hope, among other uniquely human themes.

Applying recently developed techniques, incorporating newfound vintage gear, and hitting their production stride, Zama is the Siege’s most vocal laden and richly textured work to date. Swirling dub, art funk, and minimal psychedelia all conspire in a dense, dance mélange reminiscent of slow braised pork mole; ostensibly simple, yet delightfully delicious.

The cresting pads, hypnotic, layered beats, post rock sensibilities, and absurdist art that have all burrowed into the Siege’s collective psyches for many decades are slowly revealing themselves in each new production they create. They keep searching back further and further to find deeper inspiration to go farther and you needn’t search beyond Zama to see the truth in this.

Aphotic Segment w/ Walter Wasacz + Special Guests

August 1, 2016 at 1:23 pm


Hello friends….. we are pleased to announce our latest installment of Aphotic Segment with good friend, Walter Wasacz. Perhaps you’ve saddled up to the bar at Katoi next to this wise gent and engaged in a romantic story about Detroit while sharing a bahn mi…. or perhaps not (although you’re missing out on one of the finest story tellers in the land).

Walter has influence that runs deep, whether it’s his stories about seeing David Bowie and Roxy Music for the first time. Whether it’s how he introduced us to psych rock and the new range of bands that encompass those leanings – think Toy and Total Control – or whether it’s first love affair with electronic music via the city of Detroit. This man always has a story to share and his record collection reflects this in such an astute manner. We’re always super pumped to have him out!

This month, residents Soren and Drew Pompa are taking the side lines and in their place are two very special guests. One of these guests will be debuting a performance for Aphotic Segment. The other….. well, we’re sure you’ve had a pineapple sheik or two with this weirdo (he also makes music with one of the residents, just a hint). Nonetheless, it should be a rager of mammoth proportions. Alyways free, always key!
