Biography

Brooklyn NY, United States (2005 – present)

Producer Neil Bowman and DJ Keith Kaminski have kicked up a rhythmic whirlwind since joining forces as Ladycréme in 2005. The Brooklyn-based duo’s mixes and original productions draw from diverse influences—from ’70s rock, new wave and disco to acid, house and electro—and, as the name implies, Ladycréme rubs out the wrinkles to keep the flow fresh.

The two met at college in Syracuse in 1999 and bonded over a love of music removed from the stereotypical pop of the era. “A gay boy with decent music taste—that’s unusual,” Neil thought after learning Keith had a Sonic Youth poster and was sequencing beats in his dorm room.

In college Keith moved from trading bootleg tapes by day to deejaying house parties by night. When the two moved together to New York in 2000, Keith quickly integrated into the downtown music scene, spinning at lounges around the city. Meanwhile, Neil started Station Wagon, a vocoder-heavy, retro-futuristic band that appeared at the 2002 Electroclash Festival.

As electroclash fizzled, the duo experimented with composing together. Neil laid the foundation for what would become the track “Permanent Wave,” and, with Keith’s input, the two turned it into a core cut on Ladycréme’s 2007 Motherload EP, a robotic, synth-heavy slice of vinyl released on the Hyptone label. That release was followed in 2008 by two more retro-futuristic tracks on a compilation album Work It!, also on Hyptone.
