Computers Want Me Dead
The Auckland-based two-piece consisting of Sam Harvey and Damien Daniels have been crafting their own blend of keyboard-driven, retro-futuristic, layered electro synth-pop since 2009, and first danced into our hearts with their debut single 'We Walk In Circles', which stormed the airwaves at alternative and commercial radio.
Inspired by 80s Madonna and Michael Jackson, their success to date has cemented Computers Want Me Dead as an accessible and intriguing favourite, and the band have continued to sparkle by hitting the official NZ singles charts and topping the iTunes and Digirama charts for number of downloads.
Their energetic electro-fuelled live set is a whirling and buzzing tornado of sound, akin to some wonderful love child of Gary Numan and Nine Inch Nails on ecstasy, and Computers Want Me Dead have already wowed audiences at the likes of Rhythm & Vines, Our House, The Big Day Out and as the support act for American heavyweights 30 Seconds To Mars.
Daniel is the most prolific rising talent of the New Zealand dance scene, in just a few short years he has forged his own style and sound of driving electronica. His tunes can either be of a techy or alternative edge, but are always upfront, and always rock the dancefloor. His newest original track "L.G.F.U." is currently climbing the Beatport charts.
He is a top NZ ranked DJ, has played at every major party there is to across Auckland and New Zealand, including Rythym & Vines, Summadayze, DeepHardNFunky, Our House, Godskitchen, Slinky, Chemistry, Highlife Ministry Of Sound, OneLove, and many more, and has supported over a hundred of the best international acts in the world.
His company Torque Promotions brought over many acts for the first time to NZ shores including Nero, Doorly, Crookers, Bart B More, Roska, Borgore, Sander Kleinenberg, Sinden, Fake Blood, D.I.M, Dirty South, Kasey Taylor, Infusion Live, AJAX, The Bang Gang Deejays, Bass Kleph and more - catering for both underground and overground style, and always trying to offer something a little new and different in his parties. He runs One Love in New Zealand, along with his tech brand Clockwork, alternative electronica night Nark, and NZ's biggest all ages party - Contrast.
