TOTD // 10/08 // CSMNT61

Published: August 10, 2017, words by John Carter

Part of the Motorik! takeover


Hailing from Sydney, the brotherly duo CSMNT61 are the founders of the city’s acclaimed event series and label Motorik – alongside The Finger Prince and Vivi. Residing in both the country’s (arguably) arts capital and (from the duo themselves) “outer space”, the Santamaria brothers have been making significant contributions to their scene through their regular Motorik parties.

Deemed somewhat “fresh” for Sydney, CSMNT61’s sound both in DJing and production lean towards the darker, meaner, experimental side of tech house. From a room full of unhinged analogue equipment, the brothers churn out functional, moody jams. Deep bouncing basslines, crisp machine drum patterns and the odd curve ball bring their productions to the forefront.

Advocates for the warehouse aesthetic, we of course invited the duo in to share their top warehouse tracks for our Motorik takeover. Here, CSMNT61 demonstrate their taste for party rollers.

“Acid was born from the warehouse so it goes without surprise this pulls itself off every time. There is plenty of cheesy 303 music out there, this stays phresh and cool for the modern day.”
