Tweet For A Track

Hiya All !

Here is a newbie for you ! Twitter approached me the other day offering a new service for artists, “Tweet for a track” sweeeeet,  basically the idea is that you get a track for just one tweet, horaaah 🙂 why… you might be asking yourself, well..  every artist needs a promotion and help on his way, this is where you kick in, this way you will be ensuring that the artist gets exactly that and while supporting and promoting the artist you will be extending your musical library at the same time, as they say win win situation !
So, From now on you can find Driftkikker’s freebie “Still Sometimes” for just one tweet at http://www.tweetforatrack.com/driftkikker
Join in and let your family know, let your friends know, hell let your friends friends know and while you’re at it, let your family’s and friends neighbors know as well 🙂

Have fun !
And Thank You in Advance for your support !

here is the transcript of the interview with Daddo

Driftkikker / drift-kik-ker (de (m.)) – (Dutch) – literally: an impetuous frog –
metaphorically: someone impulsive, hot tempered and emotional.
Founded by audio/visual artist Davor Dedic in March 2005, Dutch collective
Driftkikker mix and match influences from urban, ambient, trip hop, latin, funk, jazz
and rock into pure, unadulterated nu jazz with a hint of pop. ‘My dad’s record
collection featured something like 4.000 LPs and I remember being absolutely
mesmerised by an old Blue Note compilation featuring Coltrane, Miles Davis,
Thelonius Monk and others.’
Ever since, Dedic has played in several teenage bands, co-founded his own art
gallery, started an interactive avant-garde performance project and played at The
Hague’s North Sea Jazz Festival and Tobacco Road in Miami (USA), among others.
Not bad for a boy who was once ‘turned down by a music school because they
claimed I had no talent.’
Now, as Driftkikker, he has assembled a few like-minded friends to fuse
contemporary sounds with his love of jazz. Following on from their debut single ‘Your
expression’, released just four months after the project’s inception, ‘What’ is a
refreshing piece of upbeat jazzy textures crossed with modern electronics.
And yet, Dedic reveals, there is a lot more to their music than talent, tenacity and
inspiration: ‘It takes plenty of discipline – it’s a job like any other, really, the only
difference are the working hours!’
