Deli Best of NYC 2012 - Open Submission Results for ELECTRONIC

Since the beginning of the big recession, Electronic Music in NYC has been experiencing an unforeseen explosion, also thanks to the fact that electronic projects are cheaper and more efficient even compared to the most basic of power trios (no need for band mates or rehearsal studios...). Since pretty much any genre can be reproduced electronically, rather than a genre, the word Electronic indicates "sonic material" (as in: 'these songs are made with electronic sounds'). Hence the variety of styles included in this category.

From the NYC Open Blog: Jonka releases video for "Every Other Day"

Brooklyn electro duo Jonka is back with a brand new single and music video called, "Every Other Day". From their forthcoming album, "Pinks and Blues". A lo-fi beat slowly evolves into a soaring rhythmic landscape, while TV on the Radio-esque "oohs" introduce the dreamy melody.Filmed around Manhattan, the video is a montage of New York City street art and the living, breathing city itself. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).
