Magnum Turnstyle

Magnum Turnstyle was born on the back of a truck in 2001 in Oakland, Califonria and raised on a healthy diet of science funk, electronic jet clunk and backwoods robot junk. This duo recently picked up and migrated to Shanghai, China in search of the lost golden llama rhythms of the Tang Dynasty. Their commitment to altering sound is an endless journey of mind bending beats and melodies across vast audio (sur)realities. Magnum Turnstyle is Shaj & Lopan.
