Our homie Marley Carroll has a big (as in major) DJ in Charlotte this Thursday. It's an invite only battle hosted by Red Bull called Thre3Style. Here's what Red Bull has to say about the event:
"Seven of the area's best and most requested DJs will have to prove they have the spinning skills and musical knowledge to be crowned the city’s best. Each hand-selected contestant will have 15 minutes to mix three different genres of music and win over the judges and the crowd. Judged on song selections, creativity, skill, swagger, and audience reaction, each DJ will have to bring everything they’ve got to the stage in order to win this competition.
World renowned party starter, Z-Trip is considered to be one of the best live performance DJs in history, by both fans and peers will give a live DJ performance as well as join a cast of two other local judges who will score the contestants and ultimately pick who’ best."
We are pleased to announce the release of TFPP's new ep, Chill Crosby II: Rave to the Grave, a journey of discovery through mermaids of genres and tempiz. A space rock approach to hi tech electronica with a DIY element. There are moments here so accessible and inviting, we find ourselves transported to peaks and valleys not out of place on say a Beck record. Though recorded in bedrooms, the production value is high, showcasing the chops of two genuine dudes who push themselves at every turn.
The lyrics thwart pop categorization, while being emotive and precise, going from full on vocoder rap stanzas in “The Snake...” to the RnB love and romantic expositions of “I love 80 BPM” One gets the sense that these guys could be big television music superheroes if they wanted to, but that they enjoy the less facile approach to art.
We're enamored with this release and hope you dig it too! Visit their website for more music and info TFPP here!
