OK, so what can I say? Running your own label & publishing company + being part of several projects and having a day job half of the time – it all gets hectic. Sometimes you take a step back and realize oops, I haven’t updated my Tumblr in a while. But now, I’m back (again)! Here’s what’s what:
Our most recent release is the newest in the Mood series. Sort of the opposite of Dark Moods, which we released in 2012. This one is Emotional Moods. Fifteen mellow and mood-altering pieces of music flow through time and float through space, pulling the strings of the heart and pushing the limits of the soul. Through a unique mix of organic and electronic elements, VanBuren takes the listener through a variety of emotions and moods. At once thought-provoking, mystical and sensual, this collection of music stimulates the senses through repeat listens that weave in and out of new age, ambient and chillout soundscapes. Check out the News page on sykophunk.com for the growing list of places online that you can listen to and/or download this album.
Our other recent releases from Dostah Shilailee & BL8 are available on our Bandcamp page. Plus all our older stuff as well. Dive in and enjoy…
So what are we working on next? A joe DOE video mixtape, a solo release from Misfit of Triple Vision, and the Democalypse prequel Happocrisy, for starters. Also, we’re going to let Dostah Shilailee take over the artist2artist interview series and unleash him upon our friends and foes alike. Oh yeah, and Triple Vision will be opening up for some established underground acts and performing live on Outlandish Reality for their first television appearance ever! Keep your third eye open & stay tuned to the rEvolution Underground.
Our latest video, released for Friday the 13th. This song is from the album Creative Chaos, available for stream or download here: http://joedoe.bandcamp.com/album/creative-chaos Support real underground music.
Wow, 2013 has been very good to Sykophunk Productions so far! Triple Vision is doing 4 to 5 shows a month. We’re getting a lot of local Fort Wayne love, and I can’t begin to express how much it is appreciated. We’re doing something special soon as a thank you to our fans. There is so much talent in this city, and we’ve had the privilege lately of jamming and networking with some amazing people. It’s a great scene to be a part of.
The Sykophunk studio is also back in action, as we lay down demo tracks for a few summer releases. Keep your third eye open for some upcoming collabs and new material from Triple Vision, joe DOE, the elusive Dostah Shilailee, and of course the Democalypse prequel Happocrisy. Plus more live shows – hopefully spreading out regionally towards the end of the summer. I am also continuing composing/sound design work on two huge projects: an animated horror film and a dark post-apocalyptic video game.
Thanks again to everyone involved in this movement and supporting real underground, truly independent music. The team, the fans, the artists – we love you all. Your energy keeps our momentum going forward. Blessed be.
