The Mauskovic Dance Band are fusing no-wave dance punk, Afro-Caribbean rhythms and space disco in a “controlled explosion” (The Quietus).
Since the release of their “Down In The Basement” EP on Soundway Records in early 2018, the band have found themselves on a hectic touring schedule – not to mention being involved in other side projects. Following stints with Turkish psychedelic folk rock group Altin Gün, and touring with the re-formed 70s Zamrock outfit W.I.T.C.H., Nic Mauskovic also teamed up with Dutch neo-psychedelic artist Jacco Gardner to form the “cinematic Balearic disco” duo of Bruxas (released by Dutch institution Dekmantel).
Time is Fire is a band rooted in Washington DC's post-punk scene but reaching out to embrace sounds and styles from across the world-- a genre-defying blast of rhythm, noise and protest that knows no borders.
Fronted by an Iranian-born Sufi poet and backed by players steeped in punk, dance and experimental music, Time is Fire mixes pan-cultural rhythms, floor-shaking
bass grooves and acid-laced guitar into a mind-expanding geopolitical dance party.
