Boy Eats Drum Machine: Booomboxxx

Tender Loving Empire

Music Format
  • Listen to the song "Planets + Stars"

    Booomboxxx, is an experimental pop record loaded with unique turntable textures, saxophone blasts, expertly chopped break beats, and gutsy vocals. Although the record effectively mashes together several musical forms, it is Ragel’s most cohesive and dark work to date. On this record he uses the samples from "Bridgetown Breaks", a compilation of various breakbeats from up and coming Portland drummers including Kevin O'Connor (Talkdemonic), Danny Seim (Menomena) and others.

  • Boy Eats Drum MachineBoy Eats Drum Machine Finding no comfort in the trappings of any one genre, Boy Eats Drum Machine--the musical moniker of Portland, Oregon native Jon Ragel--chose to create a sound flexible enough to incorporate everything he loved. His one-man-band approach makes for exciting live shows during which Ragel sings, spins, scratches, plays saxophone, and beats live drums--all while managing to bust out some killer dance moves. Boy Eats Drum Machine has released two critically lauded full-length albums, Booomboxxx (2008) and Hoop+Wire (2010) with Tender Loving Empire.
