Announcing the debut album by Dj Baby Chocolate
Dj Baby Chocolate? Feelsing??
Q: What IS this?
Idm? Edm? Exotica? Post-Rock House?? Ambient Dread???
A: All of the above--and more
"A groove based collection of toe tappers, house steppers, and mind clearing space jams to brighten the day..."
Shaped by punk, new wave, 90's Chicago Indie Rock, ECM records, and years of spinning vinyl at DELILAHS, HIDEOUT, and all points near and wide... witness an opening, a beginning, and a new voice...
Being Sound, Being Wonder, Being Joy
4 Questions: DjBC speaks!
Q: What is DjBC?
A: Good question. Simply--a multitudinous sound energy and smile generator
Q: What is "Feelsing"?
A: Thank you for asking! Pronounced "feel-sing"... A new word that indicates "Being" as music, wonder, play, and joy. Plus, the new dope joint from ear trumpet
Q: Where's it come from?
A: Ah, the ages old question and mystery... Nietzsche said some things we often think about... "creation is the great deliverance from suffering, but the voice of beauty speaks softly--it steals into only the most wide awake souls." So, we're all Sisyphus, pushing our rocks, opening into whatever ideas of flow we can catch... he also said that man's original sin is that we enjoy ourselves too little... this seems about right. Good vibes as often as possible! It's a choice...
FINAL Q: What's going to happen?
A: Ha! No one knows. An editor at Bandcamp told me--in politely declining our release as a feature--that "we receive 1000 pitches a week for consideration, keep us updated." Ok. Ear Trumpet recordings are not for everyone--fair--but DJBC is for everyone! No matter, "try again, fail again, fail better" as old Sammy B offered. Ear Trumpet conducted a focus group of 24 year olds and the general response was best summarized this way... "Listened to the whole thing. Shit slaps. Dude has range like lots different sounds and vibes." Boom.
