Finally! Mike di Scala and Dave Whelan, a.k.a. CamelPhat, announce the release date of their album ‘Dark Matter’, which will be officially on October 30th.
This announcement brings to an end the journey of the production of this album, which has taken two years to see the light. It is thus 21 tracks which await us, with very well-known (Cola, Breathe, or For A Feeling, taken again in Dark Matter Editions), but also new.
We will also notice a new collaboration with Elderbrook for Dance With My Ghost, a new call to Jem Cooke on Carry Me Away, and above all, a very successful collaboration with Noel Gallagher from Les Oasis on Not Over Yet. Other artists present on this album set the tone in terms of genres (Tech House, with Skream and DEL-30, plus Progressive House/Techno with Eli & Fur …).
And here is, to make us wait, a little taste with Will Easton, entitled ‘Witching Hour’ that we can finally listen to freely and at any time.
My friend John Goff, a lifelong analog and electronic musician, would help me with these re-edits and indulged me as I became more ambitious with my arrangements. John suggested that we build some original music together. We put some instrumental compositions together, and then serendipitously met Merritt Lear and her former bandmate Joe Cassidy. Merritt added incredible vocals and melody ideas, and Joe added guitar and production/arrangement. We completed two songs, decided to name our project NØISE, and to rush produce a 7 inch for release at my 50 Shades of Black art show. I worked up some art for a screen-printed cover, and we cut and glued 500 sleeves to complete the NØISE “Little Lions” 45 RPM 7 inch. Additionally, all 500 are signed and numbered but will still be priced at $10… with no added “Art Tax” in sight. You can listen to the music on the turntables provided in the Subliminal Projects gallery, or buy it for the art. To be clear though, this is not an art project with music included, it is a music project with art included. We’ll release some stuff digitally eventually, but it’s vinyl only for now. Get the NØISE “Little Lions” 7 inch at 50 Shades of Black.
