Nikko Gibler Remix

 

Hello again my friends! Happy 2013. Back from vacation in Tulum and on full work mode.

I know I haven’t been keeping the blog up-to-date that much in the last few weeks, and that my friends, is about to change. I have been kept busy producing, mixing, travelling and such; so keeping up with it has been nearly impossible. However, as I said, there are a lot of new and exciting things coming up; so rest assured, 2013 will be full of surprises. Welcome back!!

Here’s a little something to get back into it smoothly…

I very recently made a remix for Mexa Records. Mexa Records is a Mexicali-based record label that has been putting out great quality music lately and therefore I jumped at the opportunity of working with them. On this occasion, the man behind the original is Corey Baker (half of Wildkatz) and he did a really superb job of getting the vibe of the song up-there and clear-as-cristal. I really got the hang of what he was trying to convey ON his original, and so I decided to go on and write a melody and lyrics to it. So, what started out as a remix, ended-up in my opinion as its own individual song, while always respecting Corey’s original concept and aesthetic. It was very fun to work on and record (which I did in multiple places while travelling) and so here it is. It’ll be out on Jan. 21st.

Also featured on the release are Louie Fresco + Jon Lee as well as a remix from my buddy, nice-guy Derrick Boyd aka. Tone Of Arc. Groooovy stuff!

Get it while its hot b*ttttttchs! Pssssssssssssssssss….. (sizzlessss) =)

CP024: Matt Tolfrey & Lazaro Casanova featuring Nikko Gibler – LAX EP by culpritlosangeles

So here’s the story. This was a particularly fun EP to work on! Many times when I collaborate with people… By the time I get sent a file or a bounce or we finally end up going into the studio; I usually have little space for overall harmonic content because I usually come in at the end of the creative process 😉 (easier for me lol) But… On the whole LAX EP I was sent these MASSIVE stripped-down grooves by Matt and Laz from the get-go so I had a great opportunity to layer and stack things up quite nicely… Vocals, synths, harmonies, melodies etc… There was room for everything. I was in wonderland.

At the end of it all, weeks to months has passed, and finally, all of the parts were mixed down beautifully by Matt and Laz; and there I was… sitting on a couch listening to the master. I was completely blown away and totally stoked because it was finally coming out.  Since I received the master 8-9 weeks ago… I’ve been playing all 3  jams on my live & dj sets consistently and they’ve always seemed to integrate themselves beautifully into whatever song was playing before them. Hopefully you will enjoy listening to this EP as much as I enjoyed writing, recording and singing on it.

Be sure to grab your copy on VINYL or AIF/WAV format when it comes out. Beats the hell out of frequency shaved, mushy sounding, over-compressed MP3s… Right? No? Oh right, most people can’t hear the difference you say. That’s correct. They can’t. But….But….But that doesn’t mean they can’t FEEL the difference. They can feel it and THAT makes all the difference in the world. Think about that.
