Jamsphere Music Review Dream Field – Domino Grey & Donna S

September 11, 2015 Leave a comment

Dream Field album review by Jamsphere

Domino Grey featuring Donna S. – “Dream Field” encapsulates the essence of music itself: creativity, passion, skill!

The album “Dream Field” is the combination of producer Domino Grey and multi-instrumentalist Donna S. The two came together to create music that is Jazz-Hop in spirit. The album which contains 11 tracks includes “A New World” from the Butterfly Affect series which is given new treatment, as Donna S. adds her touch, as well as the bonus “Melody Diagnosis” from the Back In The Black release. This is neither pure jazz nor hardcore hip-hop but rather an extension of the two. In other words, this is quite simply an inspired album. The sax from Donna S is sharp, sexy, lyrical and creative, while Domino Grey is as musical as his ever have been on the boards and keys.

The album cover

“Dream Field” is a real high-water mark in the electronic, hip-hop and jazz instrumental crossover field, one that doesn’t seem under any real threat of being surpassed for a little while. Different themes and tempos come together in this urban quilt of jazz-hop textures to make this one of my favorite Domino Grey albums. If you like a groove, but prefer the kind of sophisticated cool you can play even for your parents over the hard core you only listen to when you’re in full party mode, “Dream Field” is for you.

For whatever reason most jazz-hop albums fail but this one works, and I think it’s because of the sax, which as opposed to voice, has a sweeter, rounder, more inviting sound. Thus being less alienating, no matter which side of jazz-hop, you’re coming from. This blend is at its finest here, being inventive, original and in your face, while showcasing both ‘street-based’ and introspective tunes. The album opener “Stylus Grande” takes fusion to another level with an amazing rhythmic groove and some straight Sax hooks.

Donna S. blowing her horn!

It’s on track 3 – “Magic King”, that Donna S breaks free with some serious phrasing while Domino Grey turns up the sound effects. From there on out, the two turn up the heat and the tempo on “Hold Them Off A Little While”. “Fade Distorts” fuses some intense sax lines with beats, samples, instruments and what sounds like some direct voices talking from the studio, into some eclectic lounge loving jazz.

The formula for the most part works extremely well. Donna S blends really well with these jazz-hop-centered beats. And nowhere does she shine much brighter with some thrusty melodic blowing than on, “Top Floor Moorings”, which runs over a straight driving beat by Domino Grey“A New World” is a more of the same ear candy, but percussively aggrandized with respect to the previous track.

However it’s not the genre-fusion in itself that makes this such a great album; it’s the way in which it is fused that is impressive; “Abstraction Layers” and “Melody Diagnosis” proves the case in point. Domino brings in the most disparate electronic and organic sounds to cook in his musical melting-pot on this album. I don’t think anybody has done a better jazz-hop ‘fusion’ job than this so far. “Dream Field” is a far cry from the nonsense which passes as music in the mainstream culture. This album encapsulates the essence of music itself: creativity, passion, skill – it is amazing, and so are its primary interpreters, Domino Grey and Donna S.

She plays the brass, he slays the tracks. It’s the combination of producer Domino Grey and multi-instrumentalist Donna S. They came together to create music that Jazz-Hop in spirit. It’s a Dream Field of sultry, sexy, saxy songs. Enjoy. Album art photography by Marta Bevacqua.

Fallout Shelter: “Elevator Music Volume III Going Down”

 

Fallout Shelter Music

Jamsphere in the Sphere of influence.

Emotional warmth fills the tracks

along with their usual sonic extremes

Posted By: Rick JammPosted date: September 22, 2014

 

Four music producers decide to combine forces and create music under the name Fallout Shelter. They are Dynamics Plus (from the Lenzmen rap group), Drew Spence (from Producer’s Edge Magazine), Xodus Phoenix (instrumentalist) and Domino Grey (electronic music producer). These are instrumentals and beats designed for your listening pleasure.

Fallout Shelter has always taken their sound to new heights, adding depth and intricacy to their scores of heady electronics. Emotional warmth fills the tracks, along with their usual sonic extremes, creating an album that is at once moving and honest. Elevator Music Volume III Going Down will change the way you listen to electronic music.

With ‘Boxing The Girl’, Domino Grey reaches the end of his Butterfly Affect Series – interview on Soundlooks

Soundlooks interview with Domino Grey

Domino Grey

It Feels Right to end the Butterfly Affect Series

With the release of his latest E.P. Boxing The Girl, Domino Grey reaches the end of his Butterfly Affect Series.

This arc of music includes instrumentals that swing from pure listening vibes to house-inspired party tracks. We sit down with this electronic artist and pick his brain over the latest releases.

Where did the obsession with butterflies come from and what does it all mean?

I wouldn’t say obsessed. It’s just the overall umbrella idea that I had everything fall under. Butterfly into caterpillar- everyone gets that. People changing over time…deciding to see yourself as you are and not through the eyes of others… The affect instead of effect, because I’m talking about how these thoughts influence our self-image and self-esteem. If you think you’re a caterpillar, you will crawl instead of fly.

 But the goal is to make dance music, isn’t it? To be a part of that scene…

Well yes and many find it strange that I’d try to inject meanings and metaphors into music where- making them move is the main motive. But not every song is weighed down in deep thought or me trying to impart some kind of message. Sometimes it’s just in the liner notes. Sometimes it’s just one track and the rest are straight cuts. I party too.

The big idea for Boxing The Girl is a long, rambling message from a girl in a bit of trouble. What’s the story behind that?

I always pull my song ideas from real-life events. Usually I clean them up and make them universal enough so that everyone can relate without exposing anyone too much. We have all gotten or left an embarrassing or somewhat compromising series of messages. It’s just that no one usually saves them and slaps them on top of some music.
