Droopzilla

Droops was a writer and former music editor for various music magazines back when electronic music was still mostly underground. He’s based in Chicago, and was a DNBID co-founder and Soul Foundation DJ. These days, he’s a friend to animals and houseplants; a product manager; avid reader; cyclist; and casual gamer. He’s always looking forward to sharing shelves of records, stacks of CDs, piles of cassettes, and hard drives full of tunes with you.

Destroy With Science

New Zealand based Matt McKegg’s journey into fully live electronic music started in 2011 upon discovering just how difficult it was to perform music written on a computer in front of an audience. After a short detour speaking and performing internationally at tech conferences, he’s been keeping it local, playing many a house party and the odd summer festival. These days, using a modular / hardware synth setup sequenced by custom software running on a Raspberry Pi, he performs eartingle-infused analog techno bangers and the odd dancefloor nostalgia remix, created right there in the room on the spot.
