Show Review

Jeremy Malvin, a former University of Michigan student and current Brooklyn resident, makes fascinating percussion-backed synthesizer tracks under the name Chrome Sparks. Malvin, whose background in classical percussion clearly shines through, plays everything from tambourine to shakers to electric piano, even throwing in the occasional vocal loop.

Chrome Sparks took the stage with help from two friends, mesmerizing the audience at Hype Hotel in Austin with a live performance of cuts from his innovative first EP, Sparks. Check out our 30-minute concert capture from The Syndicate's Conflict of Interest party, featuring some songs that will make you lose yourself in their dreamy and ethereal nature, and other more upbeat tunes which call upon a full drum set and dueling mallet percussion to add that extra something to the pulsating beat.

Artist Bio

Chrome Sparks is the project of Jeremy Malvin, a 22 year old musician and producer living in Brooklyn by way of Pittsburgh and Ann Arbor. With a background in classical percussion, Jeremy combines his love for synthesizers, beat music, and dance music into a unique blend. Just before he started studying percussion at University of Michigan, Jeremy bought a pair of Technics 1200s on craigslist. Once in school, he lied and told people he could DJ, and after a few months of spinning house party after house party, that became true.
