Album Release: The Bangerz – PRiSM
Do Androids Dance Premieres PRiSM, The New Project By Six-Headed Musical Monster The Bangerz
Critical Praise for The Bangerz:
“Reminiscent of some of Mord Fustang‘s first productions, “Stars” is a perfect track to include in your party playlists, just in time for summer.” – Earmilk
“Slow tempo or straight-to-your-face banging, this album definitely shows how multi-faceted The Bangerz’ style is.” – Do Androids Dance
“The latest release from the album is “Legends Never Die,” a little ditty you can … scream along to” – Vice’s Noisey
The Bangerz have stood alongside a veritable Who’s-Who list of groundbreaking artists, including Diplo, Chris Brown, Afrika Bambaataa, Kelis, The Clipse, Ghostface Killah, Z-Trip, Major Lazer and Odd Future. Their ongoing collaboration with dance crew The Jabbawockeez has created some of the most innovative explorations of the intersection between music and dance to date. The six-person production/DJ crew returns in full force with PRiSM, a 14-track electronic explosion that leaves the listener’s head spinning in the best possible way.
The extraordinary musical IQ of the group is on display here–heavy trap tracks sit right alongside the funky house, covering the scope of dance music. Yet the scope does not feel disjointed, but to the contrary stands as testament to The Bangerz’s talent, which unifies these disparate sounds in a booming celebration.

The Bangerz Background:
The Bangerz, a six-person production supergroup of Goldenchyld, Replay, Nick Ngo Bangerz, Cutso, Squareweezy, and G-Wrex, has evolved over time, but their roots are in Northern California where the crew met as DJs in high school. They quickly made a name for themselves, winning multiple turntablist competitions and crossed paths with then unknown dance crew, the Jabbawockeez. Before long, the Jabbawockeez were turning to the Bangerz to create all the original music for Jabbawockeez performance – an almost unheard of relationship in 2003 – and kept them close while they went on to win MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew and set up their first Vegas show. Mus.i.C, the score to that Vegas show, was produced entirely by the Bangerz and charted right behind Daft Punk’s Tron on iTunes upon its release.
Combining DJ skill with slick production that spans multiple genres from house, trance and dubstep to hip-hop, pop and R&B, their innovative approach to their material has served The Bangerz well, propelling them to numerous career highlights collectively and individually, including group member Replay producing tracks for Diplo, Kelis and Chris Brown. Individually, the Bangerz have made their name as dancefloor conductors for years. Members have performed with Afrika Bambaataa, the Clipse, WuTang’s Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Kid Koala, shared tour routes with Z-Trip, and played alongside Major Lazer and Odd Future at festivals like New Orleans’ Voodoo Fest. But with the growing popularity of melting-pot electronica where 808s and hard synths reign supreme, The Bangerz have once again found outlets for their expertise to shine. In the past year, the group was solicited by the director of Project X to produce a track for the film’s anything-goes party soundtrack. The group also released their next album PRiSM, which is the score to the second Jabbawockeez’s Vegas show, on June 25.
