Domino Grey Night Zone MOTG Original Concept- Video Release

November 12, 2012 Leave a comment

Night Zone Extended NOTES

 The plan for Mark of the Griffin episode 3 was centered on “Night Zone Qualibra Straitor” from the Domino Grey release Get It Up, Lay It Down. I was going to- basically make a video for a song. I had reservations about breaking the MOTG flow- up so early in. I felt like I had just established a pattern and knew that I would be changing direction in the very near future [in two more episodes- to be exact].

I tried slipping Night Zone into the soundtrack, but it didn’t fit and the track “My First Chemistry Set” by Dynamics Plus was already so powerful in the dream sequence. What to do, what to do, what to do.

I also had a few pick up shots that were filmed after the original launch based on the general reaction(s) to the episode. It was supposed to be ambiguous and leave you wondering what was real and what was only imagined by Marcus Griffin. Was the doll really in the woods? Did it really get chilly? Was there really a smell? Was it the same doll? When creating something that’s supposed to be so open to interpretation, you have everyone filling in their own blanks and drawing their own conclusions. I failed somewhat as a storyteller as I was hoping to give hints about answers, but not leave so many questions.

Domino Grey Night Zone. MOTG Original Concept

I knew I could add extra scenes and lessen some of the mystery in the season one full length movie due in early 2013, but I didn’t want to leave this episode hanging for so long. Now I get to include those extra shots and tighten the narrative and create another stand-alone experience. There is an alternate ending that I worked on, but I might be leaving that for the full-length feature.

I present a slight re-editing of the Night Zone story over the original music I had in mind when I was writing episode 3. Thank you again to all involved and for you the viewers. Keep sharing and spreading the word. #MOTG    -Drew Spence

The Best of Domino Grey 2011 FREE TRACKS

The Best of Domino Grey 2011 FREE TRACKS

Album artwork for The Best of Domino Grey 2011

Free sampler...ready to be sampled.

Bonus track- available for FREE download.

Domino Grey is a child of rhythm- born from the Organic Electronic. The mixture of our Past and Future presents us with a sonic footprint- a quiet moment in time when silence expressed our deepest emotions and music was the only word spoken. These are cascading thoughts falling across a canvass of sound. Use these new colors to illustrate your imagination. Please touch the walls and leave behind the fingerprints as evidence of your existence.

And so AVXP Music/Dynamica Music [My Vanity label] has shut down for 2011. That makes it clear for me to reflect on everything that has happened this year. I keep a huge calendar (a cheap one from Staples) and use it as kind of a loose journal to document what goes on for any given year. I’ll make it a sort of a scrapbook and glue ticket stubs, flyers and even bills in the day’s boxes. I keep a few printouts that have important dates like birthdays (I am very bad with dates) and have a sheet for goals or Resolutions.

It’s my habit to look it over on New Year’s Eve and gauge what percent of my ‘plans’ I’ve accomplished. This has truly been one hell of a year. I’ve spent more than a decade making underground/abstract hip hop and decided to dabble in other genres. I added live musicians to my production(s) and reconnected with my muse; Shea the Doll Lizette. As Domino Grey, I’ve been able to work with some really talented artists like DJ Miki, FarishaMusic, Stephanie Kay, Elina Milan and Donna S. I released a total of six projects including Get it Up, Lay it Down, Back in the Black, the My Heart Never Skips a Beat Remixes, Fallout Shelter, Butterfly Affect Part I and the Falling Planets Soundtrack.

Back in the Black “You’re My Addiction” featuring Stephanie kay and Shea the Doll

Fallout Shelter “Kool Intentions” Produced by Dynamics Plus

Butterfly Affect “We Can Go [Dancing]” Domino Grey

Back in the Black “Melody Diagnosis” Featuring Donna S

My Heart Never Skips a Beat Flat Line Remix Featuring DJ Miki

Lonely Angel – Broken Halo Remix Produced by Dynamics Plus

Most recently, I finished the vocal recording of the Shea the Doll and Nae B FREE mixtape called The Take Over. So I’ve run the gamut from hip hop instrumentals, R&B joints to dance music – all in one year. Wow. I’m only hoping next year can run like this year and the Mayan calendar doesn’t run out just when I’m at my most productive.

A big thanks to everyone that supports my music and also my inner circle who keeps me on my toes when it comes to making the best music that I can. Blog sites like I Can’t Call it and ministori for the reviews. In 2012, I expect to finish a full Lenzmen album, more Dynamics Plus, Doctor Atomics and a few new characters will get their shine. What else? I guess that’s it. We’re early with the wrap up, but since everyone is already flipping for the holidays; let’ go in.

Oh snaps, I almost forgot. I got a free sampler, I’m running around with. It’s got all the singles from the albums of 2011. Hmm, if you want a download let me know what’s good. Crack at the kid on FaceBook.

Peace, love and Productivity from [Everything at] AVXP Music.

Lonely Angel Broken Halo REMIX by Dynamics Plus

Lonely Angel Domino Grey single Remix- Broken Halo by Dynamics Plus

You know his work behind The Lenzmen. After powering the Domino Grey, Dynamics Plus remixes the popular single Lonely Angel and gives us another version to move to. Revisit Get it Up, Lay it Down.

I took some liberties with the arrangement, but didn’t want to stray too far from the original vibe. You can hear the Drew Spence influence when the drums break into that really marchy rhythm. I sampled the kick from another Domino Grey track that’s from the next album in order to keep the sonics consistent. I very happy with this remix and although it’s longer than the album cut, it seems to zip by pretty fast.  Available on iTunes.

Domino Grey Get it Up, Lay it Down

February 17, 2011 Leave a comment

I listened to a lot of House/Dance Music in college and as a producer I would sometimes come up with music outside my usual stomping ground of rap. Friends would sometimes request copies of these tracks and mostly I would bury them in my library of Nice to listen To. As I looked at the rapidly expanding genres of electronic music, I found that a good deal of my music came very close to fitting these different styles.

And so, the process of separating and cataloging tracks began. Of course this is electronic dance music slanted towards lounge. You’ll find that it still has the Dynamics Plus sound at its core. Thanks for giving Domino Grey a listen.

– Dynamics Plus

“Night Zone Qualibra Straitor”

“Let My Spirit Run Free”

You can snag the album from iTunes and Amazon.

Domino Grey Get it Up, Lay it Down

Album Cover: Domino Grey Get it Up, lay it Down

It’s Electronic Dance Music at its best. It’s an album that is both classic and futuristic. The sound captures the vibrant energy of a moving city with its pounding rhythms and hypnotic beats. The sultry vocal styling will release your deepest emotions.
