Originally available for download as part of Join The Studio’s Free Track Friday series, “Crafty” is another off-kilter head-bobber from Nunca Duerma, collaborating with the elusive Detroit-based beat maker, Gord.ie.
The folks at JTS also chopped it up with Nunca D, who had this to say about his tenure in the Windy City:
“…I love Chicago. Never thought I would enjoy living here when I took a random leap of faith two years ago. I’ve been so lucky to have the experience I’ve had thus far, and I’ve received open arms from artist collectives like Push Beats, Kimball House Productions, some of the LOD guys too and have been very surprised how welcoming everyone has been. Chicago is a great place for young up and comers and really fosters an environment of creativity. Most of the collectives I mentioned are really trying to do something new and not follow a pre-fit mold on how things are suppose to be done. It’s them, their art, and no bullshit. I love it.”
Nunca Duerma will be dropping more beat collaborations and one-shot releases in the near-future, all leading up to the release of his upcoming Shapeshifter project.
Netherfriends recently appeared on MusicVox, a music and talk program on Chicago’s public radio station, Vocalo. The one-man-band on-the-run discussed touring, the process of making his 50 Songs – 50 States project (dropping July 4th), and collaborating with Chicago Hip-Hop artists.
The MusicVox airs weekdays 4-6 PM on 90.7 FM (CHI)/89.5 (Northwest Indiana). For more info, please visit vocalo.org
Quit your job. Give up your lease. Drive your car around the country for one year. Write and record a song in every state. That just might be the formula for writing a great album. At least that’s the one Netherfriends used to write his album – 50 Songs / 50 States. Shawn Rosenblatt, the man behind the project, joined Jesse Menendez to talk about his experiences traveling and producing the 50 song album as well as his newer endeavor – collaborating with Chicago’s hip hop community.
In the second installment of “Netherfriends Does…,” Netherfriends finds himself in New Orleans, sampling and looping his favorite Beatles records. Along with over 20 minutes of new music, Netherfriends also shares some Beatles facts, why he feels the White Album could have been one record, and awkward Brian Wilson moments.
