MP3 Lazer and the Dookers - The Show (Single Version)

By the time the filthy bass and guitar kick in, the beckoning vocals have already seduced your senses. When you least expect it, the bari sax drops a raucous melody, leaving you shaken. At this point. you can''t stop dancing. Now here we go.

Conceived in an east village basement apartment and birthed on the streets of New York City, The Show is heavily influenced by contradictions, subway stations, dancing, friends, attraction, and most of all inner city lunacy.
"We want to listen to our records!", said the Dookers. So they pulled out their vinyl and the sounds of James Brown, Toto, Talking Heads, Fela Kuti, Herbie Hancock, and Michael McDonald could be heard throughout the streets of downtown New York.
Then, late at night, they would venture out into the city and various parts of Brooklyn to dance to the live music of bands such as Thought, Beyondo, Antibalas, Hylofi, and the Pimps of Joytime...
Inspired by so many sounds and infused with the joy of living life at maximum speed, The Show was delivered suddenly to Lazer through some sort of spontaneous musical numinosity.
She scribbled all day and listened closely to nothing until something finally emerged. It was the most accurate description of her current situation that she could explain. It was nervously performed for the first time a cappella to two close friends, when the chorus appeared to catch an instant attention.
They kept singing it to themselves in the privacy of their own apartment, until one day Josh Sitron appeared, put Lazer in the studio, and made the song a reality.
There you go.

Josh Sitron (producer, bass, guitar, keyboard, drum programming, hi-hats, claves): Hello! My name is Josh. I''m a music composer / producer, multi-instrumentalist and sometimes filmmaker / shaman living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY with my wife Jenn. I have written music for Nickelodeon, Disney, PBS, and Showtime, including the mega-hit show, ''Dora the Explorer'' for which I served as musical director and penned the theme song. In 2000, seeking to free myself from the creative constraints and corporate agendas of TV music, I left ''Dora the Explorer'', traveled, and began studying improv and kung fu, while making several short films. In early, 2001 I began my own independent kids project, FunkeyMonkeys, which to date, includes 5 CDs, a live band & Off-Broadway show, and several short videos. Around that time I joined the accalimed improv troupe, Centralia as accompanist and musical director, which led to the 2002 Fringe Festival Musical ''Generica''. In 2003, I released my first solo original CD, the dark, electronic "Biblical Digital" which received some great reviews, and whose tracks have been featured in several films. Recently, I have begun recording and producing the music of other artist''s and bands at my Bushwick studio, ''The Playground''. Artists include Antibalas members: Amayo (Fu Arkest-Ra), Eric Biondo (Beyondo), and the bands, Thought, Hylo-fi, Lazer& the Dookers and others, some of whom I perform with at live shows.

Tim Allen (guitar): Tim hails from the gorgeous slice of erie county known as buffalo. he now resides in brooklyn. he has been in many different types of bands over the years and shared the stage with many beautiful musicians in the process. to name a few : the genkin philharmonic, butch morris''s orchestra slang, zozo afrobeat, fred''s slacks, the operatives, anal pudding, the brooklyn strutters, and (obviously) Thought. Recently tim has formed his own band, Hylofi, featuring members of his own favorite bands: Jerseyband, Beyondo, Zozo Afrobeat, Naked Brunch, and yes of course Thought. Think industrial/samba/funk with 5 horns and a bunch of random precussion instruments like shekere, cabasa, claves, bells, whistles, and fire extinguishers. 
tim loves to dance/eat, walk around brooklyn, and doesn''t think jokes about his name are funny anymore.
