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!
There is no real way to describe this man’s music other than to insert the words “genuine, authentic and talent” into the fold. Maybe even genius! I got hip to a Mocky cut and then my pal Nick Rosen connected me with him and the rest is history. While prepping for this podcast I downloaded a bunch of older tracks of his and was just amazed at the various directions this man can go. He has a new “Mocktape” set to drop on the 17th and I encourage you to grab it when it drops. It should be noted, today’s guest co-host is Nick Rosen who is also my bandmate in our side project entitled Los Girls. Mocky brought along the very talented and amazing Joey Dosik for a live performance with all 3 on various instruments. Hope you enjoy! This one was super fun + totally in the moment magical.
It’s been a good month for my band LOS GIRLS. We dropped our Ep on Plug Research, became Today’s Top Tune on Morning Becomes Eclectic and now we get a remix/refix/re-direction from one of our favorite dj’s! King Most steps up to the plate with this up tempo heater which features Jason Joseph on vocals. You can hear this awesome podcast I did with Most or you can grab the original EP here. Nick Rosen and I just kinda vibes, brought in a cello, guitar, bass, mpc, shakers kick drums and hit record on this project which we are super proud of.
It’s out! This project took months and months to make but it was also the easiest project to created with Nick Rosen. This project began as I started work on my second album for Plug Research and I would have these incredible sessions with Nick. We would record 2-3 songs a day then we would have downtime. We began starting songs from scratch, go grab coffee, return and hit record. Sometimes we would take a dip in the pacific in between takes. We were under the assumption this might be a great project to release ourselves so we would record with no rules, no structure and no idea where this might land. We involved our friends Derek Taylor (drums and percussions) and Jason Joseph (rhodes) to contribute and slowly the songs began to take form. I took off for a week to NY and I began capturing these sounds with my I phone from Subways, art exhibitions in the Bowery and chopping them up and placing them through out the EP. A week later Hurricane Sandy would strike these very locations and I wondered what has become of these places. LOS GIRLS also became a visual project with the help of Kim and Xochil. We would all wander the streets of East LA and just capture things happening! Life in the process with the LOS GIRLS music as a bed. We hope you dig!
