The Name: It’s pronounced “Master Craft,” as in “MSTRKRFT has mastered the craft of producing dance grooves and removing vowels from words.”
The Members: You know Jesse F. Keeler as the singer/bassist of dance-punk duo Death from Above 1979, whereas partner/producer Al-P was in the electro-pop band Girlsareshort.
The Sound: aggressive, idiosyncratic party music packed with punky riffs and produced with an analog approach (live bass, real drums, vintage synths) that defies EDM cliches
In Al-P’s Words: “We’re not these guys just sitting in front a computer. I don’t want to be limited by my index finger.”
Jesse’s Take: “We’re always trying to be brutal and pummeling. It’s a good reflection on how our brains are deformed.”
“Festival Weapons”: The term Jesse uses to describe their songs, which are designed to sound “like throwing a million hatchets into the audience.”
The Remixes: MSTRKRFT has applied its production savvy to tracks by everyone from Katy Perry and Bloc Party to Justice, Wolf Mother, and Kylie Minogue.
