Autodrone is an NYC-based band that formed in the latter 2000’s. They combine songwriting that draws upon the five members’ psychological damage, morbid interests, and broken hearts with influences drawn equally from 70’s Psych Rock, 80’s Post-Punk, and 90’s Shoegaze. From this miasma, they have forged a sound which is uniquely all their own.
Jeremy Bastard has been DJing in NYC for well over 10 years. He got his start spinning gothic and industrial music at the weekly Tuesday vampire party Resurrection at Mantra (later renamed, True) nightclub on 23rd street. Resurrection was the second weekly vampire party in NYC history (after Long Black Veil) and one of the first weekly weekday gothic events with a solid dancefloor. Other notable gothic and industrial DJs that spun at Resurrection were DJ Ian FFord, DJ Carlos D. and DJ Charlie the Slut. Also, it’s worth mentioning that DJ Xtine was one of the promoters for Resurrection along with Darenzia.
While DJ Jeremy’s roots are in gothic and industrial music, he is currently spinning a mix of electro, indie, new-wave, post-punk, and dead-disco grooves.
For the last five years, Jeremy has spun at two weekly parties (Disco Down @ Happy Ending on Tuesdays and NC-17 @ Lit on Thursdays), and has had many guest DJ spots in NYC (Motherfucker, Rated X, Trash, Girls and Boys) as well as frequent special appearances at Greenhouse, Juliette, all of the three floors of Webster Hall and elsewhere. In addition to his weekly Tuesday and Thursday gigs, Jeremy has recently started spinning every Wednesday for Bruce Wells’s party, Anti Gravity @ R-bar.
Traveling, Jeremy has spun to packed crowds in Reykjavik, Iceland, at NASA, and in Los Angeles (Dim Mak Night @ Cinespace, Check Yo Ponytail, Silver Factory Studios, The Room). In NYC and elsewhere he has spun along side Steve Aoki, Ted Shred, The Rapture, Designer Drugs, Grandmaster Flash, Ian FFord, A Place To Bury Strangers, Jason of Alchemy, Carlos D (Interpol), and David J (Bauhaus / Tones on Tail / Love and Rockets).
Recently, Jeremy’s Tuesday party Disco Down won an L-Magazine Nightlife Award for best new party. Jeremy was also nominated for “Best DJ” and was a “Feature” in the NYC edition of Time Out.
Jeremy (and his residencies) have been featured widely on many major photo blogs including, The Cobra Snake, Last Night’s Party, The Culture of Me, Nicky Digital, Ambrel, Driven By Boredom, Darkroom Deamons, and countless others including features in Spin Magazine, The Village Voice, L-Magazine, Time Out New York, Going.com, BPM, Urb, Paper Magazine, and plenty more!
Jeremy also founded the NYC based band Autodrone, where he writes and plays guitar. Autodrone’s debut LP “Strike A Match” on Clairecords and sophomore effort “This Sea Is Killing Me” on True Mother Records have both garnered critical acclaim from the US, UK, and Europe.
SaraJeanne has been singing since she could talk. Her kindergarten teacher reported she was, “a good student, but she never stops singing.” In her hometown in California, she began studying classical voice at 14, studying with Hawaii Performing Arts Festival founder, Val Underwood, renowned Australian coloratura soprano, Jennifer McGregor, and acclaimed soprano, Shigemi Matsumoto in Los Angeles. At 22, Sara abruptly quit classical music finding the structure and rigidity creatively stifling. A bit later, while at Sarah Lawrence College, Sara decided to take an elective in the theater department in Musical Theater writing. This songwriting workshop experience re-awakened Sara’s passion for music. From there, she recorded songs with the Americana band, Have Gun Will Travel, and also formed her own short-lived band, Barbara. Sara met Connie Y in 2016, the two hit it off, and soon, Sara, Connie, and Matt Wells started to collaborate. What will the future bring? Sara is learning to DJ, practicing guitar, and still always singing and writing. She looks forward to taking on as many future new projects as time will allow. Also, she’s a gemini, but don’t hold that against her.
