Thunderheist (CRED)

The pursuit of fun has proved to be a successful artistic method for Thunderheist. Grahm lived in Montreal and Isis in Toronto. They were MySpace friends. “He accidentally sent me a remix he made for Spank Rock,” tells the lady on vox, “and I spit over it.”

“Anywhere there were gaps in the vocals, she was like, ‘Mwew, mwew mwew,’” Grahm says, using his disposable coffee cup as a mic. The chemistry was clear. “So I started cranking out beats and sent them to her.” They went into their first show having never played in the same room.

Earning a rep for her onstage antics, Isis trades shots for lap dances, gets the crowd hyped and provokes dirty dancing by showing how it’s done. “Our live shows got people talking,” Grahm explains contently. [URB Magazine]

Thunderheist played the Big Stereo party at Studio B Wednesday night. Then they played Highline Ballroom with Yo Majesty, Islands, Enon, and Trail of Dead last night (Oct 18). In case you missed them, David Bruno and I just got confirmation that they accepted our invitation to also play at our Saturday night party @ 205 (RSVP).
