The concept in short for our inaugural release is FoF invites an artist to join the FoF family by signing on to do a split EP; they in turn invite another musician or group to complete the split release and commission a designer to create the EP’s artwork on a limited edition T-Shirt which will include a download card (100% seed paper card; Included will be the release, exclusive remixes and special content: ie videos, mixes etc).
For the first in the Friends of Friends series, FoF has invited a great friend and HERO of ours: Santa Monica based electronic genius Alfred (Daedelus) Darlington whom you may know from his solo work on labels such as Ninja Tune, Mush, Plug Research and more or even more recently with his wife as The Long Lost (also on Ninja Tune). With the power to choose his cohorts, Daedelus has brought in homies Jogger; Amir Yaghmai and Jonathan Larroquette for their first EVER release! Not only did Alfred attend High School with Amir but the duo are the active live band members of Alfred’s ‘The Long Lost’ project with wife Laura as well as collaborators on his ‘Exquisite Corpse’ release. He’s also managed to bless us with the INCREDIBLE husband and wife art duo Kozyndan for the cover art/t-shirt design. They all 5 are truly friends and we’re happy to now call them ours!
The fans receive a beautiful, 100% organic-shirt printed on Alternative Apparel’s “Alternative Earth” shirts and the album with bonus material all in one swoop. The album will also be available through all digital retail outlets separately.
