Kid Magnum has been working with indie label Blind Arcade Records out of Philadelphia. Enjoy the track.

Dj CUT MAN @ OTAKON 2010

3 08 2010

Dj CUT MAN and MC DEATH BEAR at OTAKON 2010Big news for Moving Box’s own Chris & Christian ( aka Dj CUT MAN and MC DEATH BEAR ): This weekend they headed down to Baltimore, MD to attend OTAKON, the east coast’s largest Anime and Japanese Culture festival attending approximately 30,000 people. The convention is named after the Japanese word “Otaku” which is used to refer to people obsessed with Japanese animation (anime), Japanese comics (manga) or Video Games.

This was a big milestone for Dj CUT MAN, Chris’ project proudly sporting the tagline of “Video Game DJ,” as it was a live performance in front of thousands of Otakon goers. Dj CUT MAN played his new mix, DUBTROPOLIS (available soon on SoundCloud), a collection of Dub-Step influenced Chiptune songs. If none of those words make sense to you, here’s a song that exemplifies the musical style. MC Death Bear became a true Master of Cerimonies that night, hyping the crowd and providing vocal interludes and shout outs throughout the set.

MC Death Bear has been creating art for Dj CUT MAN for months, and is responbile for the killer flyers for the series of shows at Ithaca’s own Waffle Frolic. Dj CUT MAN has created three full-length mix albums so far and his fourth is expected in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more.

Working with the Ithaca Police Department

19 02 2010

Laying down the law near you...if in Ithaca.

Hey everyone, so Moving Box just got hired by the I.P.D. to make a recruitment video. They are always looking for dedicated officers to join the force and thought that Moving Box could help by providing a video overview of all the departments to entice possible applicants. We will start with an intitial 30 second to a minute spot that will be on their website and broadcast in the greater New York area. I’ve had limited interaction with the police in general and realize that it’s not so bad if your on the right side of the prison bars. We will be filming them at Chili fest this weekend, and if around make sure you interact with them as you could be on TV, how exciting, right! I will update you with more as I have another shoot with them this upcoming week at the shooting range where they will be showcasing their S.W.A.T. bus. Theirs a rumor I might be able to pop off some rounds and am kinda excited about it! Til next time.

Art show tonight at Moving Box

18 12 2009

Hey everyone! So a lot of work has gone into getting this show ready. We have added a lot of functionality to the studio to properly display the amazing artwork that has been contributed to the show. We hope to see everyone there and know that it will be an amazing time. Come out and support the local artists of this town. Local band (Ayurveda) performing 2 live sets, local art from over 10 local artists (including myself who will be presenting a visual art piece for Ayurveda’s show), and your local studio (Moving Box Studios, Hazaa!) You get all this for only $10 . Pretty incredumalous if you ask me. We hope to keep doing more of these type of events. See you there! (BYOB)
