THE DEMIX is an experimental musician and DJ based in Milwaukee, WI, USA.
An eclectic electronic artist creating songs, soundscapes and mixes accurately described by The Onion AV Club as “eerily cinematic” and “apocalyptic”. THE DEMIX has performed throughout the Midwest and Southwest and is currently responsible for the MELT live music series in Milwaukee, which has featured artists such as All Tiny Creatures, Omega Clash, Signaldrift and Zerobeat.
More specifically, THE DEMIX is the long running project of experimental musician Paul Fuhr based in Milwaukee, WI, USA. Influenced by film scores and soundtracks, eclectic rock, left-field electronic music, early rave and DJ culture, Paul creates cinematic, genre defying sounds that lie in the dark corners of the sonic spectrum. He has performed with artists such as Secret Chiefs 3, Boris, Of Montreal, The Faint, Captured! By Robots, Books on Tape, The Octopus Project, Daedelus, Terminal 11, Pressboard, Lorn and Adoptahighway.
As curator of the MELT series, Paul finds himself in the position of being a “promoter” or whatever you want to call it. The bottom line is The Demix, along with some friends are passionate about what they create and listen to and want to help expose the excellent music being made in the Midwest and beyond.
This past year Paul contributed (beats, noise, samples) to releases by prog-rock-lounge act Lovanova and psychedelic rock band Luvahl. He is currently writing and recording music to be released on Radiograffiti. Available now (for free) is the Lights Out ep, Escape From Jones Island DJ mix and whatever is floating around on Soundcloud.
