The newest edition of artist profile videos from our friends at Young Heavy Souls features Nunca Duerma, who is preparing to release his upcoming full-length, Shapeshifter, on Old Tacoma Records.
We followed Nunca Duerma and his drummer, TJ Devoe, on the road as they played shows in Chicago, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo & Detroit. We also got some behind-the-scenes footage of their practice sessions.
Also featured in this edition of the Artist Spotlight is an interview with Eliot Lipp (Old Tacoma Records, Pretty Lights Music). We caught up with Eliot before a show in Detroit to talk about ND’s sound and upcoming album “Shapeshifter.”
Track 1: Nunca Duerma – “Girls”
Track 2: Nunca Duerma – “Slap”
If you’re bummed about Bieber’s retirement, or just need a chill playlist to soothe your post-holiday stress, don’t trip; treat yourself to the second annual Kimball House compilation- comprised of some of our favorite tracks from our friends and resident artists.
2013 was a great year of positive growth for us on many levels! If you’ve reviewed our music, come out to our events, downloaded our tracks, rocked a show with us, or supported us in any way, we’d just like to say THANK YOU.

Our friend and Kimball House Rock alumni, Lanzo, just dropped his new project. Deadweight.Sheep is a full set of spacey, electronic jams- visit his Bandcamp and check it out.
Nunca Duerma is a busy man. Over the last several months, he’s released multiple collaborative tracks with other artists while he prepares to drop his new LP, Shapeshifter, on Eliot Lippʼs Old Tacoma Records.
Nunca Dʼs latest offering is a remix of “Bloody Face Handshake” by rapper/producer Jeremiah Jae. Originally from Chicago, Jae recently signed with Warp Records after releasing various projects under Flying Lotusʼ Brainfeeder imprint and making himself a fixture of the Los Angeles beat scene.
In addition to a growing collection of single releases and remixes, Nunca Duerma will be performing select dates throughout the Midwest as Shapeshifterʼs launch date draws closer.
Champagne Safari Tour:
Dec. 22 – Chicago, IL.
Dec. 23 – Grand Rapids, MI.
Dec. 26 – Detroit, MI.
Dec. 28 – Kalamazoo, MI.
More dates TBA.
“The Haunt” is a new cut from Nunca Duerma and Detroit native, Jaws That Bite. With frequent collaborations in the past, this time around the two multi-instrumentalists deliver a macabre track with bump- designed to get heads bobbing and spines tingling.
Nunca Duerma’s new long-player, Shapeshifter (Old Tacoma Records), is still a few months away, but fans can catch him live on The Champagne Safari Tour in December (with San-Fran. beatmaker, Duktap).
Jaws That Bite infuses elements from multiple genres of music to create soundscapes that are unique and organic. MI heads can catch him live on October 28 at the FyouNK Collective in Royal Oak.
“Simply…” is a 12-song instrumental beat suite featuring some new sounds from Fess Grandiose. In grandiose fashion, the set includes some sample-heavy production laced with classic Funk and Soul bits and breaks, crafted right here at the Kimball House.
