Press:

“Jesse Munro Johnson has been kicking out the hypnotically pulsating jams as Gulls for years now, but here, the founder of the experimental groove label Boomarm Nation unveiled a new four-piece live band, playing trance-y, dance-y, dubby space-funk built from congas, a stripped-down drum kit, sax and Johnson’s programmed beats (and occasional trumpet). It was the funkiest set I witnessed all weekend, and as someone who’d actually seen or heard much of lineup previously (I mean, it’s kind of my job), also the biggest surprise.”-  Matthew Singer – Music Editor / WIllamette Week.

 The BOOM MIAMI EP is the second installment in our Gulls 12” series. It features 3 original tracks further exploring the reaches of DUB SPACE, and SCI-FI POLY-RHYTHMICS. With Guest remix duties by MIKE M. (Reporter/PDX).

 The majority of these tracks were recorded live in one take. Using a 12 channel mixer, a sequencer, and an array of analog equipment. Creating bass rich structures that are deceptively simple, raw and evocative.
