My funk band with badass multi-instrumentalist and my long time mastering engineer, Pablo Martin, is called The Du-Rites. The Du-Rites are my pride and joy, so whenever we throw down, we make sure the grease is burning. Our sophomore LP, Greasy Listening, drops in September. The lead single, “Bite It” b/w “Bocho’s Groove” is out now (buy it here). We figured we’d post another example of what’s on Greasy Listening on SoundCloud today, so here’s “Woody The Wino,” an album cut. Enjoy:
Finally! My very first pure funk endeavor is now available! It’s been on my to-do list for about 30 years and it feels amazing to finally have achieved it, although I never thought it would be primarily as a drummer and playing keys (with bass on a few cuts). Special shout out to my partner in funk, Mr. Pablo Martin – we are The Du-Rites! The actual “street date” is November 18, but digital download and a limited number of orange vinyl LPs and green shell tapes are available for pre-order now at: thedurites.bandcamp.com
They’ll ship around November 1. Should we run out of vinyl and/or tapes, they’re also available at www.redefinitionrecords.com and they’ll ship in the same time frame. Otherwise, pick up the wax or tape at your favorite mom + pop sites/stores November 18.
For those who don’t collect, the album will be on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc. tomorrow (October 21). I’ll do a separate post about that.
If spendin’ money ain’t your thing, you can always stream the album 24/7 on our Soundcloud page. We even considered the broke folks!
Too soon? I have a feeling this will get lost in Trump memes but oh well. There are 7 autographed test pressings of the The Du-Rites LP going on sale at www.redefinitionrecords.com at midnight EST (10/20). They ship immediately. During the afternoon (also on 10/20) the album will be for sale at thedurites.bandcamp.com digitally, with pre-orders for commercial copies of the LP and a few cassettes also live. ReDefinition Records will have the same preorder up. Those ship around Nov. 1. Album on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc. this Friday (10/21) and vinyl/tape official street date for stores is Nov. 18. #thedurites!
Here’s a taste of the mini-documentary for The Du-Rites, my two man funk combo with Pablo Martin. Both the mini-doc and the album will be available in their entirety on October 21st! Check the teaser in the meantime.
If you’ve kept up with me for the last four months, you’ll know my two man funk unit with Tom Tom Club guitarist/bassist (and my longtime mastering engineer) Pablo Martin is called The Du-Rites. Vinyl LP test pressing approved! Limited run of test pressings, digital and cassette have an official release date of October 21. Commercial LP will be out in November on ReDefinition Records. Pablo and I put a 7″ single in production in July but still no word on if we’ll get it in time. The “vinyl revival” is fly but too fly for me. New song on SoundCloud next week + video stuff, etc. to replace our missing in action 7″. I’m dying to see CDs come back in style at this point. Till then, here’s a snippet of “Play The Right Hand” live from the vinyl test pressing!
