Recondite at Amoeba Hollywood

Recondite is the alias of Bavarian-born, Berlin-based electronic music producer and label owner Lorenz Brunner. In 2011, he founded Plangent Records and released his first EP as Recondite. That same year he played his first gig at Berlin's legendary Panorama Bar/Berghain venue and began touring.

Recondite PlacidRecondite's first full-length, On Acid, was released in 2012 and garnered praise from critics around the world. Ghostly International released his follow-up, 2013's Hinterland. Soon after, Recondite became a fixture on the global DJ circuit, performing across Europe, Australia, North America, and Asia. In 2014, he released the Iffy LP on Innervisions and the Caldera EP on Hotflush Recordings. His newest full-length, Placid, was just released November 6, 2015 via Acid Test.

A longtime hip hop fan, Brunner kicks off his "What's in My Bag?" appearance with the 1992 self-titled debut from Body Count, the heavy metal band fronted by Ice-T. Next up is Nate Dogg's Music & Me and the Wu-Tang Clan's classic Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

PPL MVR at Amoeba Hollywood

PPL MVR are a mysterious band of musically-inclined non-people. Are they Space Yetis? Regular Yetis? Distant Chewbacca cousins? Long-extinct hominid cousins thawed out by the shifting of the polar icecaps? Whatever they are, it really doesn't matter, because as "the one and only PPL MVR," these one-of-a-kind rockers don't pose much of a threat to humanity--unless it's to our eardrums. Because once PPL MVR take the stage, things are gonna get heavy.

PPL MVR Record

That's exactly what happened when the three masterminds behind PPL MVR-- SNWBLL (the white one), Q (the brown one) and K-PO (the black one)--took to the stage at Amoeba Hollywood along with a few human friends backing them up live. Check out video from their epic performance below, and stop by our Hollywood store to pick up their record, The One and Only PPL MVR. 

If you happen to be in the New York area, you can catch PPL MVR live at the Highline Ballroom with Cerebral Ballzy and Oil Boom on November 11th.
