Dirtwire

Dirtwire sits on the back porch of Americana’s future, conjuring up a swamptronic space cowboy sound with traditional instrumentation, global percussion, and electronic soundscapes.

Comprised of multi-instrumentalists David Satori (Beats Antique) and Evan Fraser (Hamsa Lila; BOLO), each performance brings the audience to a mysterious crossroads at an imaginative and seductive moment in time. The result is a rebirth of Americana and beacon for a post-millennial return to down-home goodness.

The Dirtwire duo met at the California Institute of the Arts while studying World Music Composition. Both members of other successful music projects – Satori as part of the sensational electronic dynamo group Beats Antique and Fraser at the helm of world groove bands Hamsa Lila and Stellamara – their unique chemistry led to a continued musical friendship throughout the years.
In 2012 they released their debut album, attracting everyone from electronic dance junkies to traditional world and roots music toe-tappers. With their first self-titled release, Dirtwire was introduced to the world and a new family was founded.

Following their 2012 debut, an unlikely meeting with Kongar ol Ondar in San Francisco led to the creation of their second release, the Ondar EP, featuring the Genghis blues legend on vocals along with remixes by Dimond Saints and 310 that intertwined the sounds of tuvan throat singing with organic world beats with a tribal dance floor rhythm. Later that year, The Carrier EP was born featuring vocals by Rising Appalachia in the stand-out single, “The Well.”
