JFK, Half of the techno dance-punk duo MSTRKRFT, will be laying down beats and spinning records this Friday, Feb 5, at Pure Nightclub on Chippewa. MSTRKRFT is the current creative outlet for former Death From Above 1979 bassist Jesse Keeler. After the demise of the band Keeler combined with Death From Above producer Alex Puodziukas, aslo known as Al-P, to create the dance parrty entity that is MSTRKRFT. In 2006 the band released their first album, The Looks, which is full of thick modulating synth lines and Daft Punk influenced vocoder vocalizations. Their 2009 follow up, Fist of God, stayed the course with simliar tones and sounds, including plenty of phased out guitar solos and more cameos by artists such as John Legend and Ghostface Killah. Most casual listeners might recognize MSTRKRFT for their countless remixes, arranged in three volumes, of songs by bands including Wolfmother, Bloc Party, Chromeo, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Local Factory Nightlife DJs Kyle Moody, Jesse Aaron, and Lil’ Joe will warm up the crowd for what should be a wild and sweaty dance party in the middle of frosty Buffalo
