“Derek Vincent Smith is delighted to announce the release date of his new full-length album, A Color Map of the Sun, on July 2, 2013.

The footage was shot over two years in multiple cities where some part of the recording and producing process took place. It will give viewers a unique and intimate look at the creation of the collection of work that is A Color Map of the Sun. The documentary will be released this summer.”

Just hours ago and Cherub and Two Fresh released this collaborative three track EP titled “Unplanned Parenthood” via thissongissick.com . Be sure to also check out the previous releases from both artists.
Cherub is aptly self-described as “A sexy, avante garde, electro-pop duo that is the dance love-child of 80’s funk, and pop-music from the future”. I caught the duo in Dallas,TX at The Prophet Bar while they were touring in support of their highly acclaimed debut album, “MoM & DaD”. Both members have unique stage presence as they exchange catchy guitar riffs and belt out harmonizing vocals that get the crowd moving. On Nov. 30th the group joined HK Management. Big sights lie ahead for these two soon-to-be stars. (Tour Dates)
In the Spring of 2010 a group of friends strongly urged me to take a seven hour drive to catch the double bill of Big Gigantic & Two Fresh at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, AR. Needless to say I was blown away by both groups and left feeling that the future of the electronic music scene would turn in the direction of artists incorporating instrumental samples and live instruments. Twin brothers Kendrick and Sherwyn Nicholls alongside drummer Colby Buckeler create electronic dance music grounded in a foundation of hip-hop, funk, and soul. They will be touring throughout December including a stop at The Summit in Durango, CO this Friday and a New Year’s Eve celebration at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN before their dates pick back up in late January.
