Chilly Gonzales' Orchestral Rap Album Out Now


From Girlie Action:

Chilly Gonzales' Orchestral Rap Album Out Now

Download “The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales” Medley MP3 HERE,
and Watch The Hilarious Accompanying Video
HERE!

 
Chilly Gonzales’ new (and world’s first!) orchestral rap album, The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales, is out today via Canadian tastemaker label Arts & Crafts. If you haven’t checked out the video teaser that Gonz released recently, be sure to take a peek!
 
Today, he brings some “Gonzpiration” to the rap game. Accompanied by Hollywood swells, tympani rolls, noble French horns, hypnotizing bells and influenced by Prokofiev, Morricone and Phillip Glass, this record is Chilly Gonzales’ professional confessional, revealing more of himself on these monologues than ever before. The arrangements found on The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales were done by his Hollywood-film composing brother Christophe Beck, and take center stage alongside Gonzo’s eccentric personality.
 
After his Guinness World Record and the Locarno film festival prize-winning feature film (and accompany album) Ivory Tower, the single “Never Stop” was chosed by Apple for their iPad ad. Ivory Tower’s inter-planetary video hit “You Can Dance” helped bring the musical genius to the forefront of American culture.

Prince Aries Announces Clean Ass Whip Tour This Summer


From Audible Treats:

Prince Aries Announces Clean Ass Whip Tour This Summer

Bay Area DJ Takes His West Coast Cruising Mixtape On The Road

(June 8, 2011 – Brooklyn, NY) Notorious party-starter and in-demand producer Prince Aries will be hitting the road for his Clean Ass Whip Tour this summer. Kicking off tomorrow, June 9th, in Las Vegas, Nevada, the tour will be making 12 stops along the West Coast hitting cities including Los Angeles, California, Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Washington, and Aries' own turf, with Bay Area stops in Oakland and a final show in San Francisco on July 4th.

The multifaceted artist is not only known for his DJ skills, but is also the host and one of the co-founders of the TV show Distortion 2 Static and a promoter for some of the best parties in Northern California. Now that his Clean Ass Whip mixtape has been released, Aries is looking forward to showing the rest of the West Coast that he can party. "I learn so much when I travel," explains Aries. "It's easy to get caught up in our own scene where we're comfortable, but when I DJ in other cities, it's usually an eye opener. The only city on this tour that I haven't played at yet is Portland, and I’m definitely looking forward to that."

In addition to the guaranteed good time, free copies of Clean Ass Whip will be dished out at the shows, and Aries plans to make each stop on the tour unique to that city. "I’ll be doing my usual party rockin’ at each venue, but my set will be different at each one, depending on the crowd," says Aries. “I mostly want to get the music to the people. Just be prepared to dance."
