Yip Deceiver, born out of Athens, Georgia, is the collaborative effort of producer/songwriter, Davey Pierce, and accountant/vibes manager, Nicolas "Dobby" Dobbratz. What had been a solo studio project for Pierce became a band with the addition of Dobby, and Yip Deceiverplayed their first show on New Year's Eve 2010 at Athens venue the 40 Watt club. Two years later, after the release of their debut EP and a split 7" with Kishi Bashi, both on Dobby's label, Aerobic International, Yip Deceiver is ready to drop their first LP, Medallius. The title encapsulates the elegance and coolness of their current lifestyle and implies the inevitable fame and fortune that awaits. No doubt, their sophomore effort will be drenched in hardships and disillusionment, the kind that so often come with such wealth and overwhelming pressure. In the meantime, the duo have enjoyed hours in the lab with outdated Midi hardware, tabletop technology, and analog and FM synths creating an electronic pop record with true soul and character. Medallius includes special guest appearances by vocalists Christine Pierce (Rareluth) and Simone Rubi (Rubies), as well as instrumentalists Zach Colwell (Chappo/Fancy colors/Sondre Lerche) and Clayton Rychlik (of Montreal). Look for Medallius due out Spring 2013 via Aerobic International (US) and Snowhite (Germany).
Andy D is what you wanted to be when you were eight years old. He's also an adult which means rather than just having adult responsibilities he also has adult freedoms to decide exactly what he wants to be and doing all he can to actualize that desire. He plays music this like he lives life and it sounds like Andrew WK meets Grand Master Melle Mel or Like Prince if he couldn't sing that well and if he weren't a hyper-talented multi-instrumentalist. This is what his music is all about: part epicurean hip-hop-dance songs and part sincere dance rock songs, being eclectic and catchy is the only goal.
He is now joined on stage and in the studio by his lovely wife Victoria AKA Anna Vision and his Shreddy Krueger of a guitarist Lord Sven Midnite.
His debut album Choose Your Perversion came out in 2007
His second album Songs in the Key of Magic came out in the spring of 2011 on Roaring Colonel Records.
His next album War Cries will be released this fall on Rad Summer. It is an amazing 15 song concept album about a Post-Apocalyptic world in which robot and mutant factions are at war with each other, and the music itself is an evolutionary step forward for Andy D as well.
This is rap but not necessarily hip-hop. It rocks but it's not rap-rock. These songs are meaningful party songs but maximized! Andy D bends the genres but his influences are pretty apparent. And people take notice where ever he goes. From rapping about having sex with Werewolves to singing about quantum entanglement, no subject is taboo in an Andy D song; and he gets raunchy with it. Half of the fun of Andy D is hearing what he will say next… the other half is dancing. Welcome to your new addiction!
Jackie Wake takes inspiration from fringe sexual identity, analog/hardware synthesizers, and the lost dreams of the 80's.
