Asheville, NC is home to the small, yet prolific experimental record label Headway Recordings. In addition to releasing quality cassettes and vinyl, the people at Headway also maintain a strong presence in Asheville’s live music scene, bringing countless noteworthy, genre-bending acts to town. I’m very happy to be among their catalog.

Recently I lucked into a late late night dance party with DJMRTHEBEST. I remember hearing him back in the early 2000s, a fun era for Asheville underground music (for lack of a better word). Back in the days of Vincent’s Ear. Hearing him in 2013 felt nostalgic and new. He threw down - it was refreshing to be at show with grit and recklessness.
An extrasensory aspect was the awesome projection by Mister Photon Haptic Interface Furr. Some wild stuff, these photos just give you an idea of it. Then there were the people who showed up covered in fake blood, with an jar of it to share. The dancing was enthusiastic, fitting of a party in early Spring. I was bouncing up and down with the small but mighty crowd. A strobe light came on at some point, driving everyone into a frenzy.
Dancing with abandon fuels me.
Turns out DJMRTHEBEST put out a record this month, Bleak Dream.
Thank goodness for expression.
New video for the Bary Center track “green block”. It rules. Hope you don’t get vertigo. Cassette out on Headway Recordings soon
