“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.
Boomarm Nation & Sahel Sounds present:
The heavyweight sounds of Mamelon with their hit “Koumba Fri Fri” or “the head dance.” Mamelon are a young Balani Show outfit from Mali, bringing an insanely heavy djembe/electro soundclash, out of this world sound. Backed with a slowed down stormy 808 refix by Boomarm Nation’s Gulls.
Release in collaboration with our brother label Sahel Sounds on the heels of their Balani Show Super Hits LP. www.sahelsounds.com for more info

Gulls – Boom Miami EP
Out: Aug 31 2011
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.
