Dynasty Electric is an internationally-touring Brooklyn band making psychedelic electronic dance rock. Built on the foundation of Jenny Electrik’s seductive vocals and featuring the production of Seth Misterka, their retro-futuristic pop sound falls somewhere between Madonna, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Jefferson Airplane. With the help of hip-hop mogul Damon Dash, the duo recorded with producer Ski Beatz and crafted an album of dance-pop gems, perfect for the New York nightlife scene. Hot off a massive remix project for their song “Golden Arrows,” via Indaba Music, the band hit our studio to share some songs, and to chat with Maia about making the transition from an electronic duo to a larger group with more live elements, and the surreal experience of performing at Burning Man.
Featured song: “Golden Arrows”
Dynasty Electric’s album, Golden Arrows, is available now.
