Clashback: Minix Music Series at the Ace Hotel 

"In this genre-bending new monthly series born inside Three Keys, the Dominic Minix Quartet collaborates with a different musical guest each month. Minix Music has earned a wide range of collaborators via their connection to diverse local and national artists and their development of a singularly expansive sound. Expect experimental electronic artists like Froyo Ma, AF the Naysayer and Janeiro Jarel and progressive rock bands like Hildegard. No two editions are the same. We never know what might happen."

Interview: Talking Collaboration and Live Shows with Outro Creator Dominic Minix

Interview: Talking Collaboration and Live Shows with Outro Creator Dominic Minix

"Instead of remaining within a version of jazz centered around time-tested standards, his original work integrates musical ideas and techniques from punk, hip hop, rock, and r&b — basically using every musical language at his disposal to communicate viscerally and emotionally, in his own voice. When I’ve seen Dominic perform, I’ve heard elements of Black music become a means of articulating the feelings and experiences of his generation." ”

Amina Dessellle, Shotgun Griot

 

"Earlier this year, New Orleans-based guitarist Dominic Minix was performing with Christian Scott during the esteemed trumpet player’s NPR Tiny Desk set. Now–after five years of cultivating a sound that’s somewhere between Robert Glasper and Bad Brains–Minix has released his first official solo project, Cannonball Adderall. His new alias, Yung Vul, helps to distinguish the freshly dropped four-track EP from his previously released music as The Dominic Minix Quartet. “Nameless” might be the EP’s most tame track, but at nearly eight minutes this sweeping, serene jazz instrumental seems wildly appropriate for the upcoming winter days."
-Angel Fraden, Indiecurrent

DOMINIC MINIX QUARTET

Composer, lead singer, and guitarist Dominic Minix had his first experiences

playing with New Orleans jazz masters such as Donald Harrison, Shannon Powell,

and Delfeayo Marsalis. Having performed with a wide range of artists at The Jazz

and Heritage Festival, The House of Blues, and Snug Harbor among other venues,

Minix leads a quartet of versatile musicians that have developed a similarly young

and artistic fan base of their own in New Orleans. The Quartet performs regularly at  Gasa Gasa but can be heard at

Tipatina’s, One Eyed Jacks, and Freret Street Festival. Including a performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk series with Christian Scott,

Minix also can be found in the Guardian documentary, “Ten Years after Katrina: ‘I

thought that was it for New Orleans’,” for which he was a featured artist and did

the film scoring. After touring internationally with the innovative Grammy

nominated trumpeter Christian Scott, Minix leads the Quartet in recording and touring for their upcoming release, "Cannonball Adderall." With the new EP

 expounds on his style of modern jazz that integrates jazz with punk rock, hip hop, and his poetic lyrical concept.
