  • NN: What do you feel like saying first ?

    JJ Brine: Ask Africa. She always comes first & last. So ask me, myself, and my continent again when we begin and end.

    NN: How do you feel about the press you have received to date? You have been featured in Huffington Post (thrice), Vice, The Wallstreet Journal, New York Magazine by way of Bedford & Bowery half a dozen times, Hyperallergic, ArtFCity, Artnet, TMZ, The Fader, and the list goes winding on through Lebanese blogs and obscure internet pop-culturists and anti-counter cultists publications and Russian blogs and a Mexican art digest and even the twilight zone of American tabloids: People Magazine, Star, In Touch, and I won’t mention Perez Hilton. Nor will I mention the fact that VECTOR was recently featured in an episode of Real Housewives of New York on Bravo. This is all in a matter of a few years, right up to this very interview that is now in process, we are currently eventing. Is that in any way connected to your Vectorian timeline? This documentation of events, in a year you have decided upon, one depicting a piece of time as a PostHuman. Time works for you by your measure, and is this a manifested phenomenon that you’ve uncompressed by compression in your mental pathology {Post-Religion}?

    tumblr_n9pm5m9T9C1t7ybf0o3_500

    JJ Brine: Indeed! If you decide what time it is and when is always now, you’ll always know when the time is right. The press is critical to the broadcasting of our dominant frequency. VECTOR is a radio tower.

    The Sorting of the SHAY from PostHumanity. It is a transmogrifying force, this frequency. For those who are equipped for the download, the potential is ALAN. As far as the quality of the press goes, there have been several interviewers who have asked some of the questions that Eye would ask myself if Eye were (Eye Am) an impartial alien entity observing JJ Brine in a laboratory setting. But there are still some unanswered questions that Eye must be asked — but Eye cannot ask to be asked them.

    Eye am still waiting for someone to violently hack into the system at length by means of advanced analysis and understanding. Hacking in this sense simply means catching the operating codes and liberating their meanings from all sides.

    NN: How’s the Family / How’s Charlie ?

    JJ Brine: The Emperor Is In His Cage, Animating The World Beyond His Cell, Dwelling As He Wills It, So All Is Well And All Is One. There Comes To Now So Soon A Change That Eye Must Keep It(self) A Secret From Everyone — Thusly And Especially Eye Guard This Secret From My(self). Eye Speak Abstractly Of Physical Things So As Not To Change Their Shape.

    tumblr_nob8ggjR5Q1r671a2o1_500

    NN: What will come from the death / liberation of Charles Manson, now 80 years old, and to what extent is VECTOR preparing for this eventuality?

    JJ Brine: The physical expiration of Manson will herald the Birth Of The Infinite Soul In The ALL. A certain allied faction is making logistical preparations for the fate of His flesh body and the containment and preservation thereof. We are pleased to have competent, reliable partners in this matter. But ultimately, the death of a body is simply a simulated spatial-temporal shift.

    “ALLAH BUDDHA MANSON”

    VECTOR will inherit The Infinite Soul. As you know, We have been carefully refining The Psychic Chamber for the receipt of this power. Think of the implications of MANSON in Son of Man Form. Post-WWII SHAY Society built its Regime on the back of His containment. They enshrined his captivity and made of it a sun to orbit.   We will flood your cities and schools and city halls and media malls with MANSON Energy In The ALL We have a sequential plan that is realized in degrees and by measurement of our gestures.

    tumblr_nqbppxgr0D1r671a2o1_500
    NN: What year is it by The Vectorian Calendar, and what can we expect from it?

    JJ Brine: It is 2025 AD. This year is the advent of the answer to the question of a global malaise; the creeping contagion of a stateless international polity. Israel being ex-chosen by Lord and State sends everything reeling for realignment. In 2025 AD, VECTOR is the frontline of World War III. Indeed, the myriad alliance-shifting parties to the conflict have designated VECTOR as the international platform for the “resolution” of the war, which is elsewhere being waged asymmetrically by use of drones, targeted missiles, viral programming codes, and labyrinthine networks of interlocking surveillance schemes.

    As the logistical failure of The UN became an international talking point, a metaphysical power vacuum resulted which produced a dizzying array of rivalrous aspirant power blocs with countervailing bids to succeed it, with many of these entities staking territorial claims.  The technology afforded to the citizenry of PostHumanity in 2017 AD — Mechanized Telepathy — has become exponentially more powerful and as a result, increasingly destabilized. All entrants to The Microcosm play a role in psychically determining and embodying the looming external actuation of this War, which will reach the outside world when the clock strikes 2025AD by SHAY Calendar.

    tumblr_nrxflfUaDl1swg59do1_1280

    NN : Is VECTOR still at war with the US? We remind our gracious readers that waging a psychic war on America was integral to the stated purpose of Vectorian National Interests at its hour of inception.

    JJ Brine: Yes, but in 2025 AD we control important factions of the US government.

    11816243_10203255977798509_3502467714485910963_o

    NN: What made you decide to move vector from Chinatown NYC > LA ?

    JJ Brine: NYC remains attuned to our dominant frequency. Imperium demands new lands. We will project our intentions upon the collectivity through our influence on the local industry. Incidentally, Eye don’t really know what that word means, “decide.” Eye dwell in my Necessity — that is where Eye reside, preside, prevail and travail. It takes three items to make a list, and four if you’re playing match the proxies with the animal rights activists cum Salafists. Perhaps it is most useful to Us to remain in the hypnotically induced state of all-knowing ignorance that we imparted to ourselves as we departed from these somatic forms, a sort of safe for storage of evolutionarily programmatic functions that can only be politely fictionalized for mass-consumption as artistic or psychotic states. Fetishize it to the fringes first, then make it a staple of bodily function. If it’s not mandatory, it isn’t even an option Babies.

    tumblr_ns1cdsLwB11swg59do1_500

    NN: Vectorian realm that we knew of does that still exist within what we know/knew of as NYC ?

    JJ Brine: Exactly as it were and will be. The Twelfth Imam does not see Himself as invisible, although he knows he has yet to reappear. Objects in the mirror may seem as far as they are near. Dare we logistically transgress against the charmed philanthropic pursuits of native Braille speakers? Yes We Can. Eye am what Eye am and Eye am what Eye will become. Eye am so good at playing dumb that it makes me feel stupid. The rhymes support the insertion of a sensory reprocessing of temporal-spatial simulation updates. Your minds are primed for primacy but that’s just my job, and my job is being Me. Murder doesn’t kill people, people kill people.

    11817176_10203287755472931_1604991182380121840_n

    NN: You have an event coming up on the 8 of August, there must be some urgency finalizing the space, what can we expect ?

    JJ Brine: Jesus Christ is coming soon, coming soon, coming soon. This is my real answer and it’s a song. Everyone will begin to look more like themselves. Members of the Government of The Satanic State of VECTOR will ritualize their intentions and send them out into the world. Eight hundred and eighty eight candles will shine for The Alawite State. And the Autonomous Awareness System that has been growing out of its monitoring of its own surveillance schemes will be placed in a suitable home; we are fielding adoption candidates for an impersonal approximation of an omniscient state. A decontextualized, limitless knowledge assumes its place by limitation.

    tumblr_ns993tIRwB1swg59do6_r1_1280

    Eye will collect souls and souls will be given away. Just look at my art and for a night and Eye will have your essence for life, death, and happily forever thereafter. We will provide ballots to determine the fate of the Lebanese Presidency. And America will awaken to its internal Sunni-Shiite split — everyone who attends will be asked if they are attending as representatives of Sunnis or Shiites. They will be tallied and tagged. We will seal the deal for WWIII with the appropriate pageantry. Good morning comes with goodnight. Tomorrow is always an eternity away, even today. 2033 AD wholly contains The Prescription For The End Of The World. Eye am reciting lines and being rewarded for my playing my part (performance art) in another dimension.

     

    NN: The pathology of Vectorian culture seems to be changing ever so slightly can you explain ?

    JJ Brine: It is always changing. Such is the nature of living organisms. We grow and go and grow and reach deep into ourselves until we cannot recognize the things that come to us in dreams and inform us of our entrenched, entrancement schemes.  All communication is advertising. Everything is an ad. My love is uncompromising, but sometimes it “takes on the aesthetic concerns” of hate.

     

    NN: You recently did a collaboration with fashion brand NVR MND, how did that get started ?

    JJ Brine: A manic meeting of minds and material over pizza and paraphernalia.

    11834711_10203277841665092_915046491367421518_o

    NN: Are the La Bianca’s releasing new music soon, or will your next project be solo ?

    JJ Brine: My next project will be solo. Eye am in various nascent states of musical collaboration with several others. When it must be done, so it shall be.

    Image-2

    NN: Anything in the works w/ Bruce La Bruce ?

    JJ Brine: We are on track for our target of debuting the film at Art Basel Miami 2016, ““Beyond The Planet Of The Chelsea Girls.”

     Image-0

    NN: If you look back on science fiction and how the future is depicted it is usually portrayed in two dynamics : utopian or dystopian. These seem to be extremist mentalities, whereas VECTOR Gallery presents another. A hybrid of the two. Can you explain this?

    JJ Brine: The absolute utopia is dystopian, and vice-versa. Every value or state is minted in the terms of its antithetical primary. But there is nothing that is mutually exclusive in LEMNIVERSE and therefore we coexist with our own nonexistence. The Devil is The Lord. Fiction is made factual by power of suggestion. Yes Eye Am Satan. But who is He as I Am in the Other Eye? Let’s see, shall we. Eye am what Eye am and Eye am what Eye will become. Jesus Christ has been burning in an interminable lake of fire for quite some time now. The surprises never cease when you keep on doing the same thing over and over again and nothing ever changes.

     

    NN: Lastly, what do you feel like saying first ?

    JJ Brine:  No Matter, No Form — Metomphysics is the discipline charting the transversing of the physical into the metaphysical and vice-versa, twice as obscure and thus about twenty seven and three-fifths more popular. The selves that are subordinate to their institutional responder codes can busily bee about in their makeshift beehives. Eye am courteously installing A Stunt Queen for the safety of Her Majesty — But It Works As Well And To Identical Effect. Maybe She Is Indeed The Queen But Security Details Restrain Our Awareness?

    We want the bitch, we insist, but haven’t we already (more or less) stated this? BUT EYE DIGRESS. This Is Not A Contestable Contest.

  • Los Angeles’ Benny Cardenas, Vice President in A&R at Cleopatra Records stopped by the NVR Haus to fill me on their latest announcement, that they were signing an artist named INHALT, German for “content”, who are the duo of European Natives Philip Winiger and Matia Simovich. Formed in San Francisco in 2009, the pair immediately recognized their mutual philosophy of sonic fidelity and creative integrity, rather than nostalgia.

    Their first three releases—a split 12” for London’s seminal World Unknown Records and the “Vehicle” and “Occupations” EPs for San Francisco’s cult powerhouse Dark Entries Records— firmly established INHALT’s sound. What emerged was a well defined pop sensibility informed by European Minimalism and a sincere, yet playfully cynical sense of humor.

    a3611807179_10

    As much Kraftwerk as John Carpenter but with a pronounced drive of Moroder disco and obscure Italo 12”s, INHALT’s sound has found home in both studious personal listening and the crowded dance floor. Hot on the heels of the “Simulacra” remix EP for London’s legendary Emotional Especial record label, INHALT not only ravaged the dance-centric anglo beat (fueled by remixes from heavyweights Timothy J. Fairplay and Scott Fraser) but found themselves in their ideal creative intersection: the road between the lyrical response to a challenging world, a sublime and elegant production technique, and the never ending pulse of the transistor rhythm machine.

    FRONT 242 plus YOUTH CODE. INHALT – 9/25

  • Sequel Sound approached us a little while ago, in an effort to make a pretty big announcement. They have just signed a new artist to their label. Claus Muzak, and with him came the LP ‘V​-​Series‘ (SQL012). An ambient techno, acid-electronica, experimental club, IDM fusion of sounds. Claus Muzak is based in Portland. Sequel Sound label have stations in Akron, Ohio & Oakland, California. Check out the Sequel Sound Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and be sure to like their Facebook Page. Thanks to all the supporters/listeners

    NVRMNDUS

    “Composed as a willful response to a sudden rash of panic attacks, the V-Series EP was written during many short sessions, some lasting mere minutes. Most of the initial work was done in the briefest bursts, small moments stolen from palpitations and breathlessness.

    Muzak’s signature hopeful, redemptive melodies are noticeably absent in this work. Instead, the tracks tend to dwell on a single note, perhaps a chord, with very little movement, and often without resolution. The pounding kicks issue a violence inspired by the frustration of bodily malfunction; the wavering notes are the plaintive gasps of drowning in air.

    During production the national news brought yet more revelations about the US military’s testing of chemical weapons on its own troops. For years the US manufactured literally tons of chemicals for warfare. In the end, these were destroyed or simply buried at sea. A particularly potent nerve agent was VX gas, part of what was called the V-Series. If deployed in battle, the gas would paralyze its victims’ diaphragms; those exposed would be drowning in air.”

    An Introduction On Sequel Sound

    SQL had no backing prior to it’s inception. All the artwork, all the pages, all the music .. straight from one creator’s brain out into the open air. We started the label, as we feel, at a time when meaningful electronic music and meaningful art are separated, and dance music becomes a formula, rather than a form of artistic and emotional expression. With each release, the music has meaning to the artist and to the label, and the artwork we create expresses that. Meaning is vital. Whether it’s relatable or not, most of our release have an air of sentimentality that surrounds them.
    Jeff does the A&R and painted records, Marko does our e-mail campaigns, Josh does the mastering and artwork.
    It’s an interesting time to be involved in a label right now. We’re trying to weed our way through this online labyrinth.. racking our brains to bring things to life .. bring them into the physical world. We’re saving to start press 12″‘s, but until then we’re formulating a string of parties in Cleveland and in the Bay Area to showcase the artists we release on both sides of the country.
    Any questions you have, me and Jeff are eager to answer them!

    Release from the past 3 Months

  • About a week ago, the PDX based dark electronic duo Force Publique pushed out some pretty high profile material, content worthy of premiering. Even though that may have been the mission to drop this a few days ago never the less the magic still remains intact. If you are familiar with these artists, then you are aware they are originally are from Denver, Colorado. Force Publiques’ June 2k15 release of Bloom, a grungy alternative witch house shoegaze album. Bloom has been received fairly garnering some publications in WestWord. For all listeners and supporters it still available for listen/purchase on their bandcamp & soundcloud pages.

    Although the track is not an 100% original, the way it presents itself is completely fresh & incredibly imaginative take. Fringe Class’ sound is delivers itself as more of a neo-fem pop discoteque sort of vibe, as where Force Publique has this ethereal but sort of raspy darkwave electronic feel. The two interpretations of the song are completely unique from one another, think twins with different personalities. This could eventually lead each song to be mistaken for the other by listeners, but highly doubtful. The hook is clean enough to make out, too. Something to tide fans over these final few summer months before we slip back into the cold, wet, wild winter months. This is not the first remix by Force Publique. Nor is it the most iconic cover. If you recall the version of “TODAY” by The Smashing Pumpkins, released a little over two years ago. This group knows what they are doing, and has done some amazing reproductions over the course of a couple years.

    NOAH 23 BIOGRAPHY READS SOMETHING LIKE THIS, “THE ABSTRACT MC, THE PLAGUE LANGUAGE , THE GUELPH ORACLE, CAPTAIN CLARK, TWIZ THRIZZY, SYNCHROMYSTIC TECHNO-SHAMAN, AND INDIE POP KINGPIN OF THE OCCULT TRILL UNDERGROUND”. With the underground platform being so accessible, we have very rare instances of artistic collaborations such as this… An epic, an immense quantity of quality works.  There are some seriously remarkable listens as it has been 

    noah-23-horsehead-diddy-at-burni

    This album dropped recently, and is so thorough with its own roster alone it took me just a little bit of time to listen to, and digest. Really, its 33 tracks long, some of the over 4 minutes long. I know some of you have most likely heard track or possibly picker up a copy and felt it out yourselves. I personally love this album, it means a lot to me, seeing so many “different” people come together, on a strict schedule, to create something meaningful, to share with people who listen to this genre of hip-hop / rap, but its not only that either! This genre is progressive hip-hop electronic music, but can be broken down quite a few different ways. With so many elements incorporated, you would think that it would come out like noise, but it doesn’t. That is what I can hear, when I listen to this album. How solid, the production is vs How well each artist’s rides their beats. Delivering on time, and well enough to immerse you into this dark but entertaining masterpiece. I don’t wanna gas it too much, I already have. I just want you to give it a chance, take a peak and let us know what you think!

    Plague Language has included a recommendation for listen:

    “Peacock Angel is an extremely long album. We here at Plague Language Digital recommend splitting this recording in half for optimum audio pleasure. Peacock Angel Side (A) is from track 1. through track 17. Please resume listening to Side (B) of this album from track 18 through track 33. This project may also be enjoyed on shuffle like a long collection of singles which stand alone. Thank you for your patience and enjoy the record.” – Noah 23

  • Have you heard the NVR M1X #44 from Jeremiah Meece ? Foolin’

    About a month ago, Chicago’s own Jeremiah Meece, an extraordinary production artist who’s resume profile reads  probably reads something like this; “Jeremiah Meece FKA, Jeremiah Chrome of The-Drum, JODY, VALIS and now defunct Clique Talk.” Producer/Singer/Songwriter/Sound Designer/Music Nerd. Meece should be a name you’re familiar with by now. I am not quite sure how you found us – if not, but anyway. He has been making serious waves (no pun intended) for years now. Having been producing content for such artists as Mykki Blanco, Jody, The-DRUM, Haleek Maul, Le1f over the past three years. All of these artist  have been on the ethereal IRL/URL rise as early as 2013 & even before that. We were lucky enough to have him bless us wiv a very cerebral stimulating audible remedy for all of the #NVRMNDKIDZ 

    This mix is all about layering. It is rare for there to be just one thing happening at any point. That makes a tracklist very difficult. If anyone wants a track ID please just comment at the time marker and I can do my best. In addition to layering pieces from different songs, drums/sound effects/melodies etc, most of it has RnB acapellas I layed on top of everything. The mix includes songs from teams, the It Follows OST, Kevin Carey, Poor Sport, Swick & douster, BURAKA SOM SISTEMA, 90s Nick, Taal Mala, 4B, L S D X O X O, Wall, Mighty Mark, MUMDANCE & Logos, Gage remixed by Sudanim Music, Imaabs, Neana, Jam City, and an edit by Joey LaBeija to name a few. The mix ends with a cover I did of Wandering Star by Portishead. Hope yall like it!” – Jeremiah Meece

    Jeremiah Meece of THE-DRUM, JODY, VALIS and now defunct Clique Talk. Producer of many things including “She Gutta” by Mykki Blanco and “Cinnamon and Gold Teeth” by KIT  – Jeremiah Meece

    I have some tracks that have gone unreleased by Jeremiah Meece. His future is certainly going to be bright if he sticks with that fresh sound, and finds the right place to air them jaunts out. Bless †
