Dubokaj "Alpine Dub Re Dubbed" LP Promo

Dubokaj “Alpine Dub Re Dubbed” LP Promo

I love working with Dubokaj. This time around I got to promote his LP of re-Dubs and versions. This one was clearly cut for hardcore Dub consumers, so I reached out to the scene and the media that supports it. Here are the results: xlr8r, Reggae France, Dub.com, So Low Bass, Fat Kid On Fire,...
Robot Koch "Particle Fields" Online Promo

Robot Koch “Particle Fields” Online Promo

It’s always great to work with Robot Koch, and even better to see how he develops as an artist. On “Particle Fields” he joined up with composer, violinist and string arranger Savannah Jo Lack and together they created an epic score to an imaginary film. It’s music you listen to alone and with headphones on,...
Phall Fatale - Visual ID

Phall Fatale – Visual ID

It was great to work with this eclectic bunch. What the individual members of the group accomplished in the past is part and parcel of music / Jazz history proper. I was contacted by the kind folks at Irascible Music to make a  full image over-haul for the group, and to create  a strong and...
Visualizing Music Workshop 2.0 for Music Pool Berlin

Visualizing Music Workshop 2.0 for Music Pool Berlin

After hosting the panel about independent music videos for Music Pool Berlin, I was invited back to give a workshop on the art of visual development. I started with the history of  visual development and music marketing. Then, based on concrete examples, we explored how visual tools can be used to create and reinforce an...
Len Sander x Image Development

Len Sander x Image Development

As a part of the image development work for the band Len Sander, in addition to producing and directing their video, I also got to handle the creative direction for their press photos. My main objective was to create a cohesive triptych, one with an iconic feel – a set of images that would function...
Bass Sekolah - Creative Direction and Promo

Bass Sekolah – Creative Direction and Promo

Bass Sekolah make music in the jungle, quite literally, as they’re based right outside of the Seremban National Park, in Malaysia. I got a chance to help them sort out their image and launch their first single entitled Lighthouse. I wanted them to have an urban look, but with tropical inflections. For the cover I...
Kali aka Maral Salmassi Online Promo

Kali aka Maral Salmassi Online Promo

Maral Salmassi is a force: a label owner, producer, performer, programmer, designer, art director and party organizer (and probably a million other things that she didn’t get to tell me about, just yet). With her latest incarnation, as Kali, she’s taking it back to her roots and exploring identity politics in Iran and the Middle...
TRUE - Creative Direction and Promo

TRUE – Creative Direction and Promo

I’ve been working with this talented duo for a hot second now, mainly on promo. With the latest release, I stepped in to streamline their look and to create effective promo tools on a shoe-string budget. Needless to say, all of the ingredients were already there: a great looking band with a strong sense of...
Jeremy Mage & The Magi Online Campaign

Jeremy Mage & The Magi Online Campaign

It was an honor to help Jeremy Mage with promoting his debut solo release which came out this summer via Tummy Touch Records. For those who don’t know Jeremy, I suggest checking it his press release: After half a million miles of inspiration on the road, Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Mage brings home a debut...
Press Release For The Band Kamikaze

Press Release For The Band Kamikaze

This is a press release that I wrote for the talented newcomers Kamikaze, who recently debuted on Mouthwatering Records. I wanted to write something very compact, colorful and packed with information about what makes this band unique, and there’s plenty: Kamikaze make hot blooded, recklessly confident, highly affecting, electronically inflected Pop music. Their latest release,...
Tolcha x Bitwig Synergy

Tolcha x Bitwig Synergy

This was a collaboration that came about organically. My partner Pol Ponsarnau and I were shooting a video piece for Bitwig, around the same time that I was working on Tolcha’s ‘Neustadt’ LP campaign. After the presentation of what was still an unfinished alpha version of the software, I was convinced that Bitwig and Tolcha...

A Three Phase Campaign For Tour De Force / Dub Stuy Records

Working with the fellas from Dub Stuy Records was a true pleasure. Not only are they great people, but they really understand the art of promoting a release and are very effective at what they do. This was the first time that I got to work a release strategically through all three stages:  ground work...
