You may know Matthew Crouse as the co-founder of Psych-dance outfit Risky Disko (Philadelphia). The duo began in 2012 and quickly made themselves known with residencies at The Dolphin Tavern (Try it out: 2013-2016) and Ortlieb’s (Wet Boogie: 2014-2016). They recently released an EP of edits on Brazilian label About Disco entitled “Disco Afreeka”.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Crouse recently began hosting a new residency at Philly’s Kung Fu Necktie called “Standard Immersion”, enlisting local DJs and talented friends for an ‘anything goes’ night of music.
His sound has been described as cosmic, psychedelic and moody- which makes sense when you consider the wildly varied influences he draws from; including but not limited to post-punk, Italo, house and left-field disco.
