After 8 1/2 years (or so) of 4th Fridays on the Moloko Hi-fi, Monkeytek is calling it quits!
Come gather ’round one last time on Friday November 24th as Strategy & Monkeytek meet & send it off in fine style.
Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun through the years, to Emily for visuals and especially to Christian, Erin & Moloko crew for all the fun times.

Gulls is the music of Boomarm Nation founder Jesse Munro Johnson.
Exploring the reaches of DUB SPACE, and SCI-FI POLY-RHYTHMICS, Gulls takes cues from world classical/ traditional musics, minimalist ethos, dub pioneers, and oversized sound systems. Gulls music is built from live performance, improvised pattern hypnosis and an exploratory no-rules approach to melody and rhythm. Music as a lifestyle, and a discipline.
Look for Gulls forthcoming 12″ EP release Rhythm Sounds From Planet Illness coming in Spring 2016 on Common Language (new offshoot of Community Library) and ZamZam 37 7″ on ZamZam Sounds also in Spring 2016. About PDXINDUB / PDXINDUBTING:
