Breakout Bay Area natives tUnE-yArDs have seen huge successes in the last year. Playing sold out festivals and to packed audiences at the Fox, their unique sound and music certainly draws a crowd. But their bass player, Nate Brenner (who also plays in Beep! and is known for his ‘genre bending’ style) recently peeled off on his own to debut a wild electro solo project Naytronix. Naytronix sounds a little like tUnE-yArDs dipped in The Police, James Blake, Charles Mingus, Stomp, and some electro band from the future we haven’t heard yet but we know to be provocative. Weird, creative, sounds that make you want to get up and dance, or at the very lease play drums on the desk at your office.
The Naytronix EP is a four track party in a playlist and it’s streaming now on Soundcloud (see below). As if that wasn’t enough to love, Naytronix recently covered the Princess of Pop Music, Janet Jackson’s hit “What Have You Done For Me Lately,” and it comes as no surprise that his talents making and mixing music do the track a great justice. Enjoy.
