Not too many producers can remain relevant from 89 to present day. This man has certifiably done so by crafting some of the most amazing songs from my childhood and still creating some of the most progressive sounds today. FOLLOW THE NOMAD is his new project with Naz Tokio and friends who create what I consider this full fantasy gypsy sound that is rich and unique sonically.
We take it back and talk about his upbringing in Georgia as a little kid loving the sounds of KISS, Duran Duran, The Time, Prince and more. Definitely listen in as Dallas breaks down some personal stories involving his remix for Bjork and hearing her voice for the first time to studio sessions with Michael Jackson and Biggie! We also get a peak at the new EP as well a live performance with Nick Rosen and Mike Bennett
Make sure to grab his new EP entitled Follow the Nomad and catch him the band rocking The Sayers Club this Wednesday night with the entire band! It’s a unique experience that I enjoy. Hope you dig!
A big humble thank you to all the folks who came out to Sayers this past Saturday night! It was huge on so many levels. It was great being with so many friends in the building and I got to see lots of folks who use to come out to our old shindig at Little Temple/The Virgil and when ever I see these folks in the crowd at my current gigs it makes me want to just dj that much harder! It was also great meeting new folks who listen to the radio show. I am thankful to all of you who made it out! You are all AMAZING!!
Okay, back to the show! The madness began during our soundcheck. I was a bit skeptical of playing with a drummer cause I love to hear music the way it was originally recorded. Derek Taylor made it to the venue after recently landing in LA from a show with WallPaper in Canada and laid down the breaks on the drum kit and I just scratched and layered samples on the Midi pad and I cant quite explain how awesome it all came together. Our set began around 12:30 am and man! It was pure energy and madness that ensued at Sayers! I remember wiping my brow of sweat and out of the corner of my eye seeing people on top of furniture, boxes just going buckwild! Sayers was so packed we had overflow of people on the stage. I normally dont talk about gigs (I sometimes just take pics) but this is one of those moments that has been replaying over and over in my head. Hopefully venting this on my blog will make it stop!
Thanks to Itai for capturing this moment in time of epicness!
