NEW RELEASE ALERT! URSULA 1000 - Out now via i-Tunes and other digital outlets: the ROCKET single culled from the MYSTICS album. It features remixes by Telephunken, Smalltown Romeo and Mike Dextro and a killer animated video by Eric Kilkenny!
ESL Music’s URSULA 1000 is the alter ego of Brooklyn, New York based producer/DJ Alex Gimeno. His albums and mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, bumping latin disco funk, hints of post punk electro go go, sleazy glam rock…And he never stops evolving.
You can hear it in his remixes for the likes of Quincy Jones, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, Fort Knox Five to a slew of television remodels for themes to Seasme Street, The Powerpuff Girls, The Incredibles and Yo Gabba Gabba. Scenes for Sex And The City, Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother popped even more with a helping of a little Ursula as have campaigns for Grand Marnier, AT&T, Samsung and Adidas.
Watch the brand new music video animated and directed by Eric Kilkenny from the latest single "Rocket" from album, Mystics. WATCH IT!
His collaborations with Dr.Luke, Shag, Cristina, Los Amigos Invisibles, Misty Roses, Federico Aubele to name a few brought forth sheer magic on the four albums, The Now Sound of Ursula 1000, Kinda’ Kinky, Here Comes Tomorrow and Mystics. All Systems Are Go Go and Ursadelica showed the world his dj skills and ear for the finest in hip shaking groovers. Undressed had it all re-imagined by electronic’s finest-Deekline, Ladytron, Product.01, Malente and more.
You can find him traveling the world dj-ing at places like Fabric, The Big Chill Festival, Shambhala or even at his home residencies at Trophy Bar and The Commodore. For a more obscure selection of songs that make him tick, check out his radio show, Guilty Pleasures on BrooklynRadio.com.
Ursula has just recently set his time machine controls towards primitive garage punk for his new E.P., FUZZ!
Drenched in snarling fuzz guitars, savage drums and spooky organs, this new collection of tracks unleashes his technicolor take on this sound. A pinch of the old and a drop of the new, creating a brand new monster!
Inspired by the classics like Count Five, The Sonics and the Nuggets and Back To The Grave collections to revivalists like The Gruesomes, Gravedigger V and The Dukes of Stratosphear, Ursula 1000 takes in this obsession and flips it for a new generation.
Features the inimitable Fred Schneider from The B-52s on the opening song, "Hey You!". Fred and his band paved the way of mixing b-movie retro trashiness and new wave as does Ursula with his blending vintage grooves with modern electronica, thus making the pairing a no- brainer. This is not pastiche but a re-invention!
