Cinema 90


There are two artists with the name 'Cinema 90'. 1. CINEMA 90 were David Shumate and Colin McDonell from Seattle, formed in the early 1980's. After much technical experimentation they settled on a sound and performance theme of minimal synth-pop. David played multiple "hot-rodded" Casio keyboards through effects, while Colin sang. Their live performances at various Seattle and Vancouver, BC clubs were somewhat minimal but pithy. In 1983 their song "In Ultra-Violet" was released on the "Seattle Syndrome Two" compilation.

In 1983 their song "In Ultra-Violet" was released on the "Seattle Syndrome Two" compilation. Over the years "In Ultra-Violet" has became an underground club sensation in Europe, and has been re-released on the Genetic Music label of Germay in 2010. 2. Cinema 90’s story begins in 1999, with Auckland based producer Jamie Newman creating electronic dance music on a basic tracker program on his home computer. After having dj’d electronic dance music of every genre (house, techno, electro, breaks, trance, dnb, hip hop and downbeat) since 1996, his initial direction in writing music was very much four-to-the-floor focused. In 2001, under the moniker ‘dj me’, he released an ep of tech-house and breaks entitled ‘Shake Your Shit’. In 2003, after music equipment began to seriously dominate his apartment, Jamie set up a studio in central Auckland, under the fledgling community radio station Fleet FM.

With the constant thoroughfare of artists, musicians and creative types, Jamie fast began incorporating live recording into the mix. With this change in process came a different style of music, heralding the beginnings of a sound now recognizable as Cinema 90. Fusing elements of hip hop, electro, soul, electronica, house, downbeat and folk, Cinema 90’s focus is on quality music without the limitations of an umbrella genre. Six years and three studios later, Cinema 90 is releasing his debut EP through Auckland based record label Monkey Records with distribution by Rhythm Method. The first single from the ep is the feel good summer song, Sunny Day Juice, featuring an outstanding main vocal/rap by T-Minus.

Second single is ‘So Sweet’ featuring Karin Betley and Billy Fluid. While references may be made to Massive Attack, Tricky and Moby and the ep exhibits an unabashed homage to 90’s trip hop (hence the 90 in the moniker perhaps), this is music for your heart, soul and ears and this release seems sure to mark Cinema 90 as an artist to watch.
