Multi-various electronic music composer, producer, and instrumentalist Kristopher J. Gray, aka Mr. Kristopher, raises the levels of frequency in a colossal way. With a punk-metal background informing his darkly unique tone and energy, eclectic experimentation with natural ambient sounds—traveling the ocean and mountains to record almost all of his music with distorted sounds from nature–and polished production quality, Mr. Kristopher is breaking barriers with his electronic licks, core riffs, and hip-hop kicks that delivers an all-out head banging bass experience. Period.
Since 2011, the diligent former college student has maintained a busy show/festival schedule as well as promoting his music and career, managing to keep on a strict schedule with his college courses by utilizing green rooms and downtime between sets in his travels. Mr. Kristopher has created and developed a presence among the rising contenders of today’s top tier festival circuits. Throwing down on stages such as Dancefestopia (4 years in a row), The Gathering of The Juggalos, Backwoods Music Festival, Safe In Sound Festival, and SXSW. He’s also recently been chosen by none other than Complex Magazine to participate in a 14 episode series and developed a hip-hop presence through sharing the stage with Tech N9ne and touring with Potluck. In 2016, he also participated in remixing Emmy Award winning Denyse Tontz’s “United States of Anxiety” and Dave Aude’s “Sweet Dreams.” Going into 2017, he’s ready to break new ground with his first European label release Communion EP with Jet Set Trash (which includes such alumni as ZARDONIC), bringing his uniquely dark fusion of electronic styles to an eager new audience.
New comers take heed, Mr. Kristopher is far from rookie status, despite his recent blossom onto the electronic scene; he’s long since left the kiddy pool and has yet to look back. Mr. K has been swinging with the best of the best for some time. State by state, he has worked his way around the country through various clubs and theaters; spreading his message of love and down to the ground good times. If you’re in search of a light, look no further. Let this wild-style rhythm and passion fueled sound be your guide. From Mr. Kristopher’s heart to yours.

Warden Teams Up With Sisterwife on Bold and Bizarre New Single and Music Video, “Carpe The DMs”

Los Angeles, CA based electronic producer Warden once again shakes up expectations with his newest and most in your face release, “Carpe The DMs (Feat. Sisterwife),” and the duo further ramps up the audaciousness with a wildly outrageous music video. Originally premiered on The Music Ninja, the parody themed video was directed by Tim Hsiung and the multi-talented Sisterwife.

“‘Carpe The DMs’ was an interesting and confrontational concept I came up with with Sisterwife. The idea behind the song was to highlight the frivolousness of stereotypical party people you meet. The video addresses how easily it is to be influenced and sold useless things that are supposed to make you, ‘feel and look better and improve the value of your life!’ I end up in an infomercial nightmare where Sisterwife is trying to either sell me these products or kill me.” – Warden

“The lyrics to ‘Carpe the DMs’ are based on real life events pulled from drunk texts, and witnessing a girl outside the club. We tracked the vox in Warden’s closet…In 2017 social media ad targeting at times feels like a nightmare. You say “I want french fries” to your friend, open your phone, there’s an ad for french fries in your face. Also the accessibility people have to just contact anyone at any time of the day can be relentless and exhausting. We wanted to convey that feeling with the video in a different context. Hope you ENJOY! ‘CARPE THE DMs;’ — NOW!! … or else…” – Sisterwife

“The video parodies a few different things and is akin to the humor pushed by Tim & Eric. If you like the outrageous, then “Carpe the DMs” is right up your alley like it is ours. The song is a masterful bass track that shares the videos quirkiness. Together they’re a project unparalleled by most and we have the honor of sharing them with you first in this premiere!” – Tyler Trew – The Music Ninja

Kai Straw – The Recipe

Toothpick was just the beginning of a new direction for Kai Straw. After the release of his LP, he didn’t waste any time getting started on the next album. The first single off the upcoming project is a Summer ready hit called “The Recipe.”

“The Recipe” sees Kai Straw expanding on his unique, unparalleled indie-pop style. Kai kicks up a raw, but catchy sound that slowly wraps itself around your heart and soul with its intimate mood. Kai’s humility seeps through the memorable lyrics and tasteful production for a timeless love song. All the ingredients come together for something truly extraordinary to set the tone for the rest of GUN.

Stream “The Recipe” on Spotify

Kai Straw is the name of one of San Francisco’s best kept secrets.  The humble creative is known for a dynamic sound that has taken him from hip-hop producer, to emcee, to poet, to singer-songwriter, to one of the most unique R&B / soul vocalists on record.  Kai’s diversity in sound is matched only by his eclectic taste beyond the mic; as the director of his own videos, as a writer, musician and producer – he seems to be a modern renaissance man expressing panoramic talent across the arts in addition to his headlining forte.

Kai Straw is set to release his album, GUN, through his own imprint Tenth Gate Records. Complete with 10 songs, GUN sees Kai Straw levying his singing talent to new heights through a multitude of varied records; each possessing a kaleidoscopic range of influence across a broad spectrum of genres – from indie and soul, to funk and R&B, to EDM and hip-hop. Produced by James The Bear, this LP builds on the sound of Kai’s previous album Toothpick, but is characterized by a tone that is as eclectic as it is sure-footed.  If Toothpick can be considered Kai’s first step into the foray of the pop music landscape, then his newest record, aptly titled GUN, is his sonic boom.

In 2016, Kai Straw released his highly anticipated album Toothpick, whose sounds caught fans by surprise in the best way possible. His most successful album to date, Kai Straw reached fans around the world by locking in support from Spotify through their Best Fresh Finds of 2016, as well as seeing the single “Hurricane” reach #2 on their Global Viral Chart. The album received support from entertainment figures like Demi Lovato and MTV’s Khylin Rhambo, as well as tastemaking music blogs including Indie Shuffle, Music Ninja, Girl Underground Music and more.

Premiered on The Music Ninja, “United States Of Anxiety (Mr. Kristopher Remix)” will be featured on the United States Of Anxiety Remixes EP, due out mid-September.

I structured this remix so that it feels like you’re listening to the sounds of someone’s anxiety fluctuating. I loved this remix because it pushed my boundaries of what I could do with my music!Mr. Kristopher

Download FREE Mr. Kristopher’s Cover of “Sweet Dreams” With Skylar Stecker:

“Recreating Sweet Dreams has actually been a “sweet dream” of mine for years now. I wanted to pay homage to the Eurythmics & Marilyn Manson, but at the same time add the dark Mr. Kristopher flair to it without disrespecting these legendary musicians. For the first part of this official remix I recreated the famous melody from the original Eurythmics sweet dreams, for the next part of the song I pulled out a guitar and actually recorded Marilyn Manson’s heavy bridge section, and then transition all of these parts into my signature sounds, all while using the Skylar Stecker’s vocals that were sent to me! I recently learned that sweet dreams are made of this, who am I to disagree? 🙂Mr. Kristopher

Mr. Kristopher Teams With Madhatter! on “SIX,” Out NOW On Panda Funk Records

reduced

Multigenre Electronic Music producer Mr. Kristopher (Kristopher Gray) has joined forces with Producer/DJ/Guitarist Brett “Madhatter!” Hopkin to release “SIX,” out NOW on Deorro’s Panda Funk Records.

“This record from Madhatter & Mr. Kristopher actually happened pretty naturally thru our friendship. We kept meeting up in different cities we were playing shows and eventually decided to put our two styles together. The name of the song ‘SIX’ is in reference to a bug because of the weird sounds we created for background effects, but what is kind of crazy is that this is also my 6th record I’ve signed in 6 months. I created the first part of the song, Madhatter created the 2nd part of the song, and then, for the 3rd part, we did something that we have never seen before in dance music: we created a build while increasing the BPM. Instead of leaving it at the raised tempo we actually dropped it back down to the original BPM and finished it out with both of our sounds mashed together!” – Mr. Kristopher
