The club lights are low. The dance floor is a sweaty blur of shadows. You can feel the blood and adrenaline surging through the crowd. There's a band on-stage and they are telepathically connected to the audience-making bodies bounce like it was a feat of mind control. This is Moving Units and this is their natural element: unadulterated grooves and constant motion.
Moving Units have bottled this since their 2002 EP debut. When Blake Miller first started writing demos and recruiting band mates to help expand his vision, the idea of fusing dance music and indie rock was practically alien. Alongside groups like Franz Ferdinand, The Killer, and Bloc Party, Moving Units were at the vanguard of bringing body-rocking grooves to scythe-edged rock and roll. "Back then, no one danced at shows in LA. There were always industry people trying to play it cool," Miller says." We wanted to shake things up and make people dance."
Tastes have changed. Members have joined and left the band. But the locomotion inspired by their music remains immutable. Credit the ease with which Miller has merged into contemporary dance culture. A DJ himself, Miller's remixes with Steve Aoki have earned tens of thousands of spins worldwide.
"I've never abandoned the concept that a live band can put on a really hot dance party," Miller says. "It's about conveying that energy and allowing people have a visceral and euphoric connection."
