Have You Ever Seen A Rose Pose?

The melancholy mood of Stockholm-based photographer Carl Kleiner’s photography series, Postures, proves that while some of us may be talented in floral arrangement, only Kleiner has the gift of a tulip whisperer.  And yes, they’re not actually roses, but using tulips, simple props and splendid lighting, Kleiner has created an eerily human atmosphere that suggests that each pose, in its skill and elegance, is somehow a sad premonition of an ending. A cut flower is doomed to die but in their final moments, these tulips are making art.

As a DJ and sound engineer, I know all too well how much work can go into one song and this song has been all over the radios for a while now and it’s interesting to see how the actual song was made.

Watch this video with the Chainsmokers as they explain how they recorded their top 10 hit “Roses”.

In today’s music industry, production is crucial to having a career that pays the bills.  When I was growing up, production equipment was expensive or under-developed, and East Coast beats were relatively simple.  I always considered it a disadvantage that I never learned to produce when I was younger, and with a co-DJ (Jeff Phantom) who hadn’t make a deep trek into the production realm, I didn’t think we’d be able to pull off our own music without years of practice.  Luckily veteran producers Joe Major, Rich Lyfestyle, and Clayton William put themselves at our disposal to help DJ Jeff Phantom and myself come up with a project that let us flex our production wings.

The 5 track EP features original remixes of songs from Zedd, Lil Wayne, Katya, Outkast, and even a take on classical music.  Trap as a genre is something that’s growing, weather it’s a fad or not remains to be seen, but what Jeff Phantom and I wanted to do was put a trap twist on some classic, new classic, and classical tracks.  Both Phantom and I teamed up with different producers to get the sounds we wanted in the tracks that we chose, and to take a listen, click or scan the photo below to download.
