Rhythm & Stealth Monotronic EP

Monotronic is the latest release from New York producer Lex Sadler‘s solo project Rhythm & Stealth.  Since its inception in 2012, Rhythm & Stealth have been transforming NYC’s live electronic scene by mashing heavy bass synths, laptop glitches, Sydney Driver’s blistering drums and a rotating cast of instrumental collaborators.

Having performed as a sideman to artists such as Ellie Goulding and Blitz the Ambassador, Rhythm & Stealth is Sadler’s first project as band leader. Onstage collaborators have included Cory Henry, Alex Han and Igmar Thomas.  We asked Sadler to tell us a bit more about the project and new Monotronic EP:

“I’ve always enjoyed electronic music, so to perform it in a live and improvised way is exciting. There’s enough freedom in the music to allow everyone to stretch and express themselves — it’s almost counter-intuitive to how people normally perceive electronic performance.”

“This whole project came out of an electronic jam residency we used to have at NuBlu. I flipped the electronic music creation process on its head — starting on stage and producing later.”

Monotronic is a nice window into my musical influences. I want the music to inspire energy in people — to hype them up. We have an insane synchronized light show and 3D projection mapping that we take to every venue. I like to bring the stadium production to every stage and really give the audience a show.”
