NERVE was initiated in the spring of ’98 by drum wizard Jojo Mayer as an experimental platform for a handful of New York musicians interested in the cultural phenomenon of intelligent electronic DJ culture and the opportunity it created as a gateway to new musical paradigms and pioneered the movement of live “electronic” music.
His basic idea was to deconstruct electronic music and reverse engineer the textures and rhythms of digital production within a live performed context. Live drums, bass, keyboards and live interactive sound processing – no loops, sequencers, or pre- production. All sounds and rhythms performed in real time!
Based out of Boston, MA, Wobblesauce blasts through generic boundaries as a unique concoction of electronica, rock and action-packed dance music! As one writer at Performer Magazine described their performance at the newly-established (yet legendary-status!) Upstate NY festival, The Big Up, in the summer of 2011: ” If I were an epic video game character, this would be my soundtrack. Glitchy, melodic, dance-rock, and at times fun, dubbed down, and fat as hell!” Made up of Jake Boynton (Bass), Cody Rountree (Drums and E-Drums), and Michael Micharthy (Keys, Synth, and production), and hailing from all across the country, Wobblesauce is known for their complex, textured effects and driving rhythm section that can make any crowd freak out and get down!
