Trying to put Main Course into a genre categorization is like trying to catch a cracked-out cat with your shoes tied together after chugging some Nyquil. It's not gonna happen. Yeah, a lot of the tunage is noisy and upfront or upfront-adjacent, but the main aspect that unifies the works of Astronomar, Neoteric, label newguy Wuki, and Bot (amongst others) is an adherence to open format party-starting.
If you need proof, just check the remixes of Bot's Bot Music EP. The tracks are all over the place and that's just the way they like it. Bot, AKA Andrea Fratangelo, is a recent Los Angeles transplant after ending his involvement with Crookers (Peep Bot's manifesto for more on that) , and he's found a quick home amidst all the Main Course madness. "Neoteric and I used to work together when I was in Crookers and we carried on when that experience was over," Bot tells THUMP. "Going solo was deeply motivating and made me realize once again how much I could learn doing music…I also just recently moved to LA and I have to say that right now it feels like it's the world's capital for music."
We got Bot to give us the rundown on all the remixes on the EP:
