Infinity Machine is a duo comprised of Juan MacLean - as in the Juan MacLean, longtime DFA traveler - and Gee Dee, also known as Greg Droggitis, a producer and DJ based in Brooklyn and 1/3 of the Earth Beat DJ troupe.
The project name stems from a series of gatherings the two began hosting in various private spaces around New York City shortly after lockdown, though that description is a bit innocuous for the journeys traveled by its attendees.
These events, billed as “psychedelic dance ceremonies” lasting 8 or 9 hours, began with a sound meditation to vibrational and acoustic instruments before eventually segueing into a “dance” soundtracked by a DJ set from Juan and Greg. Something clicked - that ceremonial tea! - and so Juan and Greg began playing and recording in their studio using the same approach: improvisation with equal attention placed on traditional acoustic (flute, guitar, gong) and more contemporary electronic (Yamaha DX-7) sounds.
After awhile, there was literally three albums worth of material, each of them a voyage into the warm space between new age, ambient, drone and psychedelia. None of those genres quite fully describe what’s across 001, 002, and 003 - available from DFA digitally and on a very limited run of cassettes (150 each!) - but if you’ve read this far then you’re either the right kind of curious or just forgot what you were doing.
