Dynamics Plus – Architect of the Heavens

Dynamics Plus Architect of the Heavens

What cosmic force is the Architect of the Heavens?

It’s a cosmic journey of sound, based on the sights of our planetary system. What unseen hand shaped the heavens and put the planets in motion? He has left us wheels and cogs as evidence of his handiwork. A clock maker on a universal scale. Beyond time and space are the designs of His celestial order. We are small witnesses to a divine miracle.

 

What cosmic force is the Architect of the Heavens?

 

Producer Dynamics Plus from The Lenzmen and Fallout Shelter creates an ambient experience as we travel across our solar system and feel the pull of the planets. Gravity is translated into sound and the result is the vibration from the void and the frequencies found within the firmament.

Available now on CD Baby    and Bandcamp   iTunes Beatport and wherever fine music is sold

Buy Directly from Dynamica Music/AVXP along with other great titles.

CPG interview with Domino Grey 2015

Canadian Producers Group

Exclusive Interview with Domino Grey

CPG logo

O Canada! Domino Grey on deck.

Domino Grey is an Electronic Music producer from New York. His influences range from Hip Hop to Deep House. He is part of a group that releases instrumental music under the name Fallout Shelter.

Domino in his Dominion

You’ve been producing for quite some time now. What’s it like being an old school producer in this new day and age?

I mostly grew up listening to House and the most popular dance records so the music I create has a wide range of influences. It’s a split of genres now. Making house music isn’t really based on being old school, it’s just one of my favorite sounds. I like big room and electro elements, but they don’t speak to me enough to create a work that fits squarely in those lanes. There’s an acceptance behind making what fits your ear and letting go of what’s trendy for profit’s sake. I think it’s great to have your hand on a pulse, but I am most comfortable creating from my ear and taste then with pure technical skills.

How did you first get into music production? 

Recording at other studios and always feeling rushed…trying so hard to maximize the time. It’s a creative-killer so I started building my own studio so I could create whenever I wanted to- in whatever zone I needed to be in.

When was your first big break as an electronic music producer? 

I wouldn’t even say I’ve had my big break yet. My break-though came when I decided to switch from beatz to instrumentals and then to something groovy and danceable. I was experimenting and working towards something. While sitting at a train station, I was cranking my latest mix and the kids started dancing. I knew then that I was on the right path.

Dynamics Plus “Grace Notes” from

the Dynamic Universe Volume 9 album

Rocket Science launches another one. Gracefully Noted

 

 

Grace Notes lyrics – written by Dynamics Plus

 

You can vow to never- come up out your house

my d— still pushed down deep in your mouth

You liar, you said you retired, shots fired

The “Wizard Is In”; sick magician, tricky.

Lyrically, my scripts writ far beyond abilities.

Rap critic, acidic, cynic, here’s another clinic.

You should leave this elite league

You need a leave, Aleve, plus a long lead.

I’m a read Reed Richards, be relieved

This aint Christopher Reeves or Duane Reade

or Dwyane Wade, or Dwayne Wane.

This means: watch his arms raise when he gains degrees.

You couldn’t surpass if you had every answer

in the X-Men First Class, now and future past,

a flying guillotine, a Gracie gui, the tai chi

the yellow suit and black stripes of Bruce Lee.

You couldn’t find a mind more twisted than mine

if you combined the half life combine,

combined with some carbines from Columbine-

or had the prawns armor on from district 9

or a glass of water from signs

or even a suit Tom Cruise would use or a

Pandora suit Stephen Lang would choose.

No acrobat, you couldn’t write and react

even if you had Yoda stuffed in a knapsack.

I’m nimble, limber, singe to cinders

a sick inventor I spit, split and splinter

My Fallout Shelter’s a Nuclear Winter.

A shooting star, I back flip to finish ya.

I grim reap, trim meat cleave.

You grit your teeth ask ‘Why you repeat?’

Well, that’s a motif, my ES7.

The DS7: heavy metal, heavy weapon

Ignored the warning, sign said ‘no swimming’ in.

Dived in, saw the sharks fin, started panicking

Your splashing’s attracting him.

Stop acting in bullshit rap tales.

You feeling the Braille?

Rhymes too frail, you just might fail.

Dynamics Plus -Exclusive Music and Life interview with Lee Caruso

Exclusive Music and Life interview with Lee Caruso. It’s a Fallout Shelter start when producer Dynamics Plus chops it up over the latest release Elevator Music Volume III Going Down. We mind the music and more in this Q/A.

 

Dynamics Plus in studio

Fall out in the Fallout

 

Do you think that producers like Dj Premier, Dr Dre, RZA, Pete Rock etc. influenced you to make the decision to release an all instrumental album?

 

No. I knew of PeteStrumentals from seeing ADs about it, but haven’t been following anyone else. I think it’s a good idea to have an outlet for your productions aside from the narrow lane of backing music for rappers.

 

What was your biggest setback in becoming a musician?

 

It took a long time to discover that many ‘sounds’ are a product of playing technique and not generated solely by an instrument’s tonal character. It’s something close to an articulation where the interaction of notes, timing and velocity create a sonic moment that is impossible to create otherwise.

 

How does studio engineering play a role in getting the desired sound that all of us musicians have inside our heads but have trouble reproducing?

 

It’s about knowing the How behind a sound and the tools that are needed to achieve it. You can be looking for a massive drum sound and keep asking for more bass, EQ and compression. An engineer might know it’s really distortion you’re after. Or if you’re trying to get a certain character you hear on an older record – it might come from the tape saturation. A solid engineer can help translate what you describe into a process and help get you there.

Are you a perfectionist when it comes to your craft? How long does it usually take you to complete a song- Is it ever really finished by the time the release date comes?

 

The release date is usually what causes me to stop tinkering. You can noodle and keep adding things forever. Sometimes I listen and I want something happening every split second and other times I have that patience for repetition and let a groove run. Every song is different. Some records have taken years to realize. “Gear Lust” was written and rewritten a dozen times but then “Dominator Brainstorm” was almost a freestyle keeper.

Fallout Shelter Going Down album cover

Going Down is getting up

Do you generally do crate digging for vinyls or do you use digital software based models to come up with your sound?

 

I haven’t done any digging in years- although I have a pretty solid collection. I like hardware manipulated by software. Software affords so many advantages, but if I slide too deep in that programming direction, I begin to feel like my songs are an arrangement of sounds and not a recording of performances.

 

What kind of gear do you use- headphones, speakers, DAW, Plug-ins, compressors, EQs etc.

I keep it pretty simple. I like to work in pure audio. I like to see my recording. I reserve MIDI for inter-communication between pieces, but rarely for triggering a sequence or controlling my song.

 

What do you think of the concept of sampling? Do you think it is fair use if utilized in small increments of straight up stealing of someone else’s intellectual property?

That all depends on how it’s done. Sampling approaches the same level of thievery as copying someone’s chord progression, technique and stylistic tendencies. Just because you’re playing an instrument doesn’t mean you aren’t building off another artist’s work. How much- decides how thick the lines are between creativity, inspiration and mimicry.

 

What music do you listen to other than hip hop?

Well to be honest, I don’t listen to too much hip hop. I have a very wide playlist with just about everything on it- from cheesy 80s music to Funk to Classical to Calypso. I have fight music from video games and I record the audio from my favorite scenes in movies.

 

What was the best concert you have been to and why?

I’d say KRS One at Stony Brook University. It was my first time experiencing an artist at that level live. He was more than a rap star rapping his records. I felt like I took a trip and thought about music differently after that. Up until then, I was primarily experiencing music through recordings so when I made songs, I thought about the radio as the main delivery medium. Seeing songs in a live context opened up new ideas and avenues.

 

How is the music industry changing and how are artists able to get their music out into the open without the help of huge labels like Warner, Universal, and Sony?

The big change is labels wanting you to self-start your career. You need to get yourself out the gate. No one is looking to create or develop you; they are looking to discover you – already walking down that dusty road. The dilemma is, by the time they tell you ‘hop in’ you really don’t need that lift anymore. The ride is more about arriving in style at that point. Everyone has the media now: songs, videos, social profiles and band pages. The tougher part is getting people to care and that still requires a massive effort by the artist.

 

Rocket Science album cover

Blast Off!

Why do you do this- why is music such a passion of yours?

I don’t know anything else that makes me feel this way. There’s a moment of childish giddy when I listen to some things that I make. I rewind it over and over and over again. There’s a beautiful moment of disconnect where I don’t hear elements or see a sequencer rolling by, it’s just a musical experience at that point.

 

Who is part of your team- do you have lawyers, managers, agents, accountants, engineers, producers etc. If you want to do something big in the music biz you are going to need an army.

We move more like a specialized unit. The world isn’t about fighting wars against a stand up army anymore. It’s covert operations and small units. Why do I need to do something big? If you think about the most peaceful places to live and be in the world, those nations don’t have armies. I don’t need a room full of people scheming on your sensibilities to do what I do.

 

What do you think of hip hop music today? Do you think the best stuff is on the TV and radio?

Loaded question, but okay. You know what goes here.

 

Do you have any passion projects?

Yeah, anything story based. CHAOS Legion and Battlestrux. There’s a bunch of that material that I know is catering to a small segment of music listeners.

 

What are you most proud of as a musician?

I would say my catalog. I like being self sufficient.

 

What kind of student were you growing up?

Stronger in English and anything dealing with writing. I leaned that way, right from the start.

 

If you had one last meal before you died, what would it be?

Some kind of salad with toxic herbs- enough to fake my death and later escape, after waking up in the morgue.

 

How busy are you generally when it comes to music- do you still have time to socialize and have family time?

Everyone that knows me understands how important music is. If you’re around me, you’ve been involved with my music in some capacity. That’s the connecting point.

 

What was the first 16 you ever wrote? Can you spit it right now?

I know a few bars from it, but not the whole thing. And it’s pretty terrible except for the few bars I barely remember. Some things are best left buried and forgotten.

 

Who do you think holds the torch of hip hop right now and who used to? This doesn’t necessarily have to be subjective.

Yeah, I don’t know. That’s insider fan stuff and I honestly don’t consider myself a knowledgeable follower and haven’t been for a long time. I know so little about who’s doing what, I couldn’t even name an accurate top ten of anything. We’d have to go way, way back.

 

Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?

Doing whatever I would want to be doing. I only say that because I can look back 5 years a few times now. And that’s basically what I’m doing so I figure that won’t change. It’s like me from the future showing up now and giving myself advice. It would be the same advice each time: Find that thing you want to do and do it 100%.

 

 

 

What was the worst job you ever had?

I won’t name it, but I can describe it. It wasn’t enough money to better my situation. The length of time I did it was not adding up to useful experience. And the job itself wasn’t helping humanity in any way possible and as an employee, I was not appreciated. And last, there was no future or better days or advancement to look forward to or build toward. It made no difference if I was the best worker or worst.

 

If you can look at most situations with that same scrutiny, you’ll find a lot of decisions are pretty easy to make. Man, thank you for taking the time to chop it up like this. I appreciate it.

New video Dynamics Plus “Gear Lust”

Gear Lust:

To have an intense desire for equipment,

usually beyond any logical need of the musician.

 

 

Let’s face it, I spend an inordinate amount of time at Sam Ash. Let’s rewind. It was years ago, but still feels like yesterday. I am circling the keyboard area and waiting for the pro audio rep to be free. He tells me hold on a second as he finishes up with the previous customer. See, I have a wad of cash in an envelope, in my pocket and I know this is a pivotal moment. Up till then, I’ve been using an old AKAI S- series sampler and now I’m about to buy a brand new Ensoniq ASR-10. It’s a workstation sampler and in my mind, the purchase represents crossing a line that now means I’m serious. Yes, that’s the “big box carried out” , but if you know the ASR-10, you aint carrying that thing under one arm like I am in the video.

 

Over the years, I’ve met many friends and musicians at Sam Ash. From producer Nate Tinsley to Jen to Anthony Michael Angelo, who plays guitar on “Dash the Cloud”. Sam Ash is an incredible place to meet, greet, jam and of course buy gear. So it only made sense to ask Sam Ash (Huntington) to sponsor my video for “Gear Lust”. A super thank you for supporting Dynamics Plus and his Rocket Science album. Of course Jen does a cameo along with David Weintraub from the bands Terra Stigma and Olive Drabs. Thanks, although he had a little too much fun cutting up my credit card.

Enjoy the video.

 

GEAR LUST

 

I’m at Sam Ash, a credit card in a flash

a Little stash of spending cash soon as the salesman asks.

ASR in my grasp, I cashed out, did the dash

ran out , credit maxed out, big box carried out.

First beat blacked out and since seen the seeds sown

I’d seek to own a whole studio and

compose in a grove where fungus grows

and go all out in my Fallout where

time goes in reverse. I’m so immersed in a verse

and reawakened to when first taken by the Gear Lust thirst

 

And then the MPC became the MCP

Master Control Program over quantized beats

Dispatch EMTs this patch bay EMP

Radioactive fallout rays irradiate Rom Tray

It’s the space knight Rom-pler verse the titan

Triton, astride a tide with his trident: silver surf board

I’m Jean Luc Infected by the Borg.

My foresight affords me more Cause to amplify chords

and multiply Scores. I’m tied to the MicroKorg;

It’s an applied optical force

brought forth from the visors of Geordie LaForge.

less is more, none the less I’m poor,

even when blood

pours from my pores

I’m still at the store with more gear in store.

 

The baby plays in his playpen, the Rob Papen presets

sits and assists in the banks of the A6.

It’s the basics of a spaceship, in an Analog grip.

Equipped with digital chips, conducting experiments

Rocket Science cast-iron Black Lion.

Galaxy Alliance – LFO descends like a UFO

Pro Tools to edit in Audition, extra exhibition.

I’m Roy Orbison with X-Ray vision, visit my Solar System.

I’m a Projector wiz with the AV with the JP and the JD

and the JV all Roland into One Super Friends/ Justice League

Greed’s the engine to feed, plus it’s the rush of the gear lust.

 

On Craigslist I can’t resist the endless list of

equipment and musical instruments.

Told my wife that I need this.

She said “Get your Focusrite

It’s a sounbank that amounts,

a new track to bounce, a few checks bounce,

a new age pronounced, the old sounds drowned out.

Moving the crowd, Removing any doubts

setting up my debit accounts, my debt mounts.

I moved out, first record comes out.

Credit runs out, few fans ran out.

Shout outs, shots rang out.

CD sales count and I surmount.

insert a new serving; this my new album announced.

Rush my Rocket Science – a crush is a crutch,

and hear the bust – down for the count from the Gear Lust

 

 

Chorus

Closed Captioned a bust, so close to the clutch

 

It’s Technique over touch- so close to Gear Lust

 

It’s at most a Rush, a new plug is a plus

 

As it grows so Composed In the throes of the Gear Lust

 

Closed Captioned a bust, so close to the clutch

 

It’s Technique over touch- when so close to Gear Lust

Album: Elevator Music Volume III Going Down
Reviewed By: Joe Wallace

It isn’t too often that we’re requested to review an instrumental Hip-Hop album, but it is something I enjoy. Getting the chance to listen to something new and different to change the daily routine is always nice.

Prior to listening to this album for review I had never listened to Fallout Shelter, so at first listen I was very critical, however by the end of the second listen I had begun memorizing lines and was swaying to the beats. Every track has a surprise at every corner, each song brings something new to the table rhythmically. There is also very good things to say about the actual production of the album as well. It’s not my favorite genre to listen to, however it was a very well put-together album and I’d suggest it to any of my friends who listen to hip-hop.
