A new year, new beginning!

Some of you knew and some didn’t, besides making music daddo is making art as well, and now you can visit the exhibition of his works at Kunstcafé de Galerie in Warmond (NL) if you are around.

The central topic in Daddo’s work is harmony between nature and culture. People are ensuring the constant expansion of the urban environment and as a consequence are facing change and disappearance of the natural surroundings. Using the relief background creates the impression of landscape that has been build in to the buildings, shaped only out of elements found in the constructions of a city, while the embedded chord net expresses that however we try to rebel against our nature that as well remains to be a harmony that we are living in.

News Update !

So what’s going on,
I know it’s been a while, but there is a good reason for it, I didn’t want to reveal it to the world until now, but the new CD is on the way (yes, you read that right), the tracks are in process of being rounded for the production, and this time there are guest musicians from around the globe. I’m very pleased to say that after the debut “Coming of the light” caught international attention, there was a steer in the musicians community that lead to these collaborations, and all of these musicians are massive in their own field, (I won’t be giving it away yet who they are 🙂 I’ll keep you posted as tracks are being made), this update is just to give you a head start and prepare you for the things to come.
As usual there are more then thirty tracks made for the Album, and this will eventually be narrowed to give a tight musical journey through dimensions of jazz, electroacoustic, funk, rock, latin and world, keeping it true in tradition of DRIFTKIKKER style you all grew to like.

So much for now,

Till Soon !
