D.A. Talks Chester French’s 2nd Studio Album


One of the fans asked D.A. when some new Chester French material will be out and this is what D.A. said:

Hey there friends,

I wanted to write back to this message since I’ve been getting a lot of questions and comments about the new album. Max and I started recording last February in Milwaukee at the Burst Collective with our engineer, Dan Stringer, and spent about 5 months intensively working. We then moved out to L.A. and, between there and New York, spent another couple of months tweaking the material. We gave a CD of it all to the label. And then….the waiting game commenced, for us and for all of our amazing supporters, yourself included.

We hope to have an update on when and how the album will come out in the next few weeks, and I promise that I’ll let all of you know right away on this blog, my twitter, the official Chester French blog, and by email if you’re a member of our Concierge Service. We are so grateful for all of you who have continued to support us and stay in-touch while we’ve been “off the grid” during this past year. Your emails, snail mails, tweets, and other kind correspondences have always been incomparable motivation. From snowy Wisconsin, I wish all of you the happiest of holidays!

Love,
D.A.

Can’t wait to hear the new material!

Pharrell Williams Introduces Cris Cab


Grammy Award winning artist Pharrell Williams introduced local Miami musician Cris Cab poolside outside the Fontainebleau’s nightclub, Arkadia. The 17 year-old Miami native, Cab has been writing music for the past three years and is currently recording his first album. His recent performances include multiple venues in and around the Miami area, as well as shows in the Bahamas. Cab cites his Cuban descent and his frequent visits to the Bahamas as part of the inspiration for his unique musical sound, which draws on reggae, as well as hip hop and rap influences. Although new to the scene, Cab graced the stage with confidence and an eagerness to perform. Arkadia guests were quite impressed with this new emerging artist!

Asher Roth & Nottz – Gotta Get Up feat. D.A.


Here is a tune off Asher Roth’s and Nottz upcoming project, The Rawth EP called Gotta Get Up featuring D.A. of Chester French. The Rawth EP is set to drop on December 27th, 2010 and according to D.A., he also worked on Asher Roth’s second studio album The Spaghetti Tree , so since The Neptunes have worked with Asher on 11 tracks for the album, D.A. will probably be on one of Neptunes’ tracks (if they make the final cut… lol).

What do ya’ll think? Please reblog and support Nottz and Asher doing a cool independent project with this EP! I did a few other things with Asher for his upcoming album, as well, so hopefully those will see the light in the near future. I still think Asher is a great rapper who is admirably refusing to ride silly trends and is instead pursuing greatness and staying true to himself.

Common – Come Close (Fanmade Video)

Check out this awesome fanmade video of Common’s Come Close by AngelXStrider dedicated to his girlfriend, that’s pretty sweet (no homo).

AngelXStrider
Hello everyone, I made this video for my girlfriend’s birthday. She’s partially deaf so the thought of using this song from Common immediately came to mind. I took the concept he did for the video and made it my own by doing a combination of sign language, animation, and typography. I wanted to share this video along with everyone else and I hope you all enjoy watching it.
