To raise the new, one must raze the old. For the better part of the past decade, Los Angeles producer/DJ Jerome Potter has utilized his creative efforts toward LOL Boys, a collaborative project that was sparked via an online message board with likeminded DJ Markus Garcia. Undoubtedly a fruitful endeavor, debuting numerous buzzworthy EPs and becoming among the most in-demand DJs in the LA club scene, the LOL Boys recently reached their climax with the release of their most acclaimed record to date, the Changes EP, and have since announced their decision to put the venture on an indefinite hiatus. From the ashes of LOL Boys though, rises Jerome Potter’s newfound solo enterprise, Jerome LOL. And now, with the ability to contribute to the entire greater whole rather than just half, Jerome LOL is set to continue right where LOL Boys left off: further exploring uncharted spectrums in modern dance music while still maintaining the unique, Internet-fueled aesthetic.
Zero Zero is an electro-fuzz-pop project by Nicole Laurenne and Michael Johnny Walker (both of The Love Me Nots), and drummer Nick Ramirez (The Dead Eyes of London, Beezlewood, Butcher Jones).
Original tracks are currently in production, influenced by Sleigh Bells, The Sneaker Pimps, Santigold, Beck, and the Ting Tings. An October 2012 debut EP release is planned on Atomic A Go Go Records. An early demo recording of "Drug" went into rotation on Phoenix radio unexpectedly in June 2012 when Laurenne gave the demo to a disc jockey during a live interview. Two demos are now spinning on independent specialty radio shows out of San Francisco, Boise, and Berlin.
As the team behind garage rock act The Love Me Nots, Laurenne and Walker have written and released five albums, toured the world, appeared in feature stories in Rolling Stone, Spin, Village Voice, Austin Chronicle, LA Weekly, and UK's Classic Rock, among many others, achieved regular rotation on Sirius/XM Radio and commercial radio specialty shows worldwide, and saw their entire discography re-released by french label Bad Reputation Records. Laurenne was named Best Frontperson of 2010 by The Arizona Republic and Walker was featured in Fender's The Soul of Tone video. Laurenne and Walker continue to collaborate with many other artists on on-going projects.
BLAQUE PANTHER DISCO
Coco Disco from Dijon, France. Heiress to the Dijon mustard dynasty.
Jean-Claude Disco from Châlons-en-Champagne, France. Heir to the Perrier-Jouet dynasty.
Both had wanderlust fantasies of moving to Paris, the city of luster, lights, and love!
Jean-Claude left his family estate driving his two seater 1955 mercedes benz 300sl gullwing coupe with a trunk full of his families finest reserve champagne on a quest to manifest his destiny--to delver his disco-tinged dreams to the world.
There was only one thing missing--his muse for music.
Deciding to explore the many regions of France to discover the missing link before landing at his final destination in Paris he visited the city of Dijon. It was here while driving through the beautiful streets the breathtaking young blonde beauty who could only be known as Coco caught his eye. With her glittering golden afro catching every ray of light, her on foot dancing through the streets. Jean-Claude knew he had found the one.
Immediately, he slowed his roll, ate a mentos, and asked coyly, "excuse me, do you have any Grey Pupon"
At which she replied ever so gently, "why, monsieur, funny you should ask. Why, yes. Yes I do."
As she extended her slender arm and the golden rays of light illuminated her fair skin, he knew, she was the one.
Coco was her name and disco was her game. As any gentlemen would, Jean-Claude offered the wind-swept, blonde beauty a refreshing effervescent afternoon delight. After all, it was 5 o'clock somewhere.
In exchange, a picnic in the park on the most perfect day ever, was agreed upon.
Hours passed, and discussions of artistic expression ensued. Coco began to sing softly in her native tongue and it was at this precise moment that Jean-Claude knew that Coco was the missing element he had sought for so long.
It didn't take long for Jean-Claude to convince Coco to run away with him to form what would become the most regal disco duo Paris would ever know.
And after traveling to Paris, Black Panther Disco was born on the steps of Montmarte.
