‘Cocktails & Condoms’ Cover Art.

Tons of people have seen the announcement banner for “Cocktails & Condoms” produced by the master photographer Unni R. and featuring the lovely Allie Marque.  But while trying to figure out the final packaging scheme for the CD, I ran into a little issue, all the photos I have are a bit too good for me to decide which one should be coupled with the front cover.  I haven’t released the front cover as of yet, but I’ve already got that one down, what I need YOU to do, is take a vote on which of the 4 photos you like the best.  The winner will be the back cover of the CD.

That New New: ‘Cocktails & Condoms’

DJ Storm Presents: 'Cocktails & Condoms'

So many people outside of my close circle of friends have been wondering exactly what I’ve been talking about when I keep mentioning ‘Cocktails & Condoms’. Well I’m finally allowed to give out some details, so here’s the skinny… ‘C&C’ is a mix CD I’m going to be releasing for the summer party season. Its a crazy blend on Electro, Hip Hop, Dancehall, and Slow Jams. (yes slow jams).

‘C&C’ features music from Gyptian, Busta Rhymes, Steve Aoki, Drake, Vybz Kartel, Tiesto, T.I., Hyper Crush, Rihanna, Tokyo 24, Fabolous, Boys Noize, Gucci Mane, LMFAO, Jay-Z, Elephant Man, N.E.R.D., Ratatat, Usher, Michael Jackson, Armand Van Helden, G.O.V., Jadakiss, Rye Rye, and like a billion others. There are some brand new original DJ Storm remixes, remixes of remixes, and mashups of originals remixed with other mashup remixes the likes of which most humans on the planet have never dared to phathom. So needless to say I’m putting 1000% of my talents into creating a project that will truly be a unquestionably impressive work of music.

Many people saw the video behind the scenes of the make up shoot, featuring video by Unni R., and showcasing the work of the production team, Allie Marque, Joana Casanova, Ashley Forrest and myself. (and if you didn’t, click here). The purpose of that video was to give people a short taste of some of the music on the CD, and give a little insight into the process behind putting this type of project out. As things progress, I’ll be dropping a few more videos of integral parts of the creation of ‘Cocktails & Condoms’ and dropping previews of some of my favorite mixes from the CD at the same time. So be on the lookout for updates and notifications from now till the release date.

Its going to be a good one.
