PRESS RELEASE:

“Tiny Masters of Today

New Single – ‘Hey, Mr. DJ’ – 24th Sept 07

Brooklyn, NY based Tiny Masters of Today release a new single, ‘Hey, Mr. DJ’ on Mute – out on the 24th September 2007.

Available on CD, 7” and download, the track is a gritty and funky call to arms, a demand for equal access to the airwaves with the plea “Hey, Mr. DJ, Turn up the music.” On board to spice things up are Brazilian punk/funk sensations Cansei de ser Sexy (CSS) and label mates Liars, both with brilliant remixes of the title track.

The pairing of CSS and Tiny Masters of Today is a typically improbable one, the bands have never met in real life but became friends via MySpace, corresponding for over a year before finally coming up with an appropriate project to collaborate on.

Adriano Cintra from CSS explains, “I first heard of Tiny Masters on MySpace. I got really crazy about them, I wanted to have a younger brother and sister like them. Kinda of, he, let’s make party songs for when we get older… now I am older and I’m glad I got Tiny Masters as friends!”

Label mates Liars take a more deconstructionist approach, creating a hypnotic and apocalyptic dub soundscape that is, frankly, kind of scary. In retribution, Tiny Masters of Today took a crack at remixing “Clear Island” from Liars’ new album, the “Tiny Liars of Today” mix will appear the next Liars single release.

The youthful sibling duo with an average age 12 have been making waves internationally with their distinctive and energetic sound. Ivan (age 13) and Ada (age 11) have been tearing it up in the UK with sold-out singles, rave reviews, BBC and XFM airplay and none other than David Bowie declaring their first single to be “Genius”.

Debut album ‘Bang Bang Boom Cake’ (out now on Mute) was recorded in New York with production duties handled by legendary Jon Spencer Blues Explosion drummer Russell Simins and the Elegant Too. Simins, who is also the band’s live drummer, plays on most of the album alongside a number of artists from the diverse New York music community such as Kimya Dawson (Moldy Peaches), Fred Schneider (the B-52s), Gibby Haynes (the Butthole Surfers) and Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)”
