Savage House

December 23, 2009

Just enough time for a short post today. Family dinner in a bit and I couldn’t be less in the Christmas spirit. I know summer 2009 is four months past, but I just cant seem to get over these heat-themed throwback Miami Vice jams. D/A/D associates Savage House just released their pay-what-you-want(as long as it is more than $2) EP, which I found through Milano, Italy based Rosso Corsa records, and where D/A/D aims to recreate the best of Jan Hammer, Savage House rolls up the sleeves on their white sportcoat and gets a little dirtier.

MP3: “The Hunger” – Savage House

Chris d’Eon, Montreal Madman

Chris d’Eon sends a hell of an email. To the point, direct links to downloads of 3 releases, and an all too humble request that should you like his music, he’d be more than happy to send a cassette. The style runs the gamut from Jan Hammer and Chromeo pop, to more serene electro and finally a heavy Tibetan influence that Chris honed while studying Tibetan Dranyen while at a monastery recently. He’s got an impressive range and a depth of knowledge about melody, production, and something seemingly more spiritual.

Today in Chill

November 15, 2009

Last night turned out to be an especially lucrative night in gold-panning for talent. In a couple hours I managed to add an hour and half of music to my iTunes and spend some cash on some well-deserving artists. This is putting my DEFTJAMS playlist up past the 12 hour mark. At 24 four hours, I will release the whole thing as one 24 hour long mix for download on here.

D/A/D would make Jan Hammer jealous. Comprised of a single Northwestern University student, D/A/D’s “Super Motives” is pulled straight out of Miami Vice. Cheesy? A little. Dated? Certainly. And yet that hasn’t kept this EP from playing on repeat for the better part of the afternoon. Don’t miss out on D/A/D’s jock jam transformation of Yelle‘s “Ce Jeu” at the end of the EP.
