THERE'S SOMETHING A LITTLE ODD ABOUT THE NEWEST PROJECT FROM ARTIST AND FASHION DESIGNER JOHNY DAR
By Sara Darling
I can't quite put my finger on it, but it sounds a little weird.
The chameleon of the art world, has fingers in many pies and can now add record producer to his creative exploits.
Already a successful artist, designer and all round creative, Dar has turned his talents to songwriting, and has released a song with made up words, which he has dubbed ‘alien-rap’. Claiming 'It's not really a human language- I've been speaking it since I was a kid and no one on earth understood it..
For a minute I tried to fir in but failed, so I had to recreate my own world from scratch, and this language was part of that."
Living in a parallel universe, and self-invented time schedule (Dar-time -with 32 instead of 24 hours in a day), Dar has lot more hours to fill. So its no wonder his effervescent mind has designed a language that has many meanings.
Starting from scratch, the psychology of alien rap stems from the fact that everything is sound and a vibration and it only takes on a meaning when we interpret what it is saying; "Language plays an important part in shaping our experiences in life. I’m delivering a new world of experience in art, fashion, music and film, so I guess a new language had to be a part of it!"
With many bows to his creative arrow, he has collaborated with countless celebrities on fashion, art and design projects, so it's no wonder his imagination has translated itself to singing-songwriting and performance.
With the EP set to be released in September to coincide with London Fashion Week,
expect high-energy electronic dance music, which features the original language on every track.
Complementing this new venture, the 'Dardelica' live show, is hitting UK and European festivals this summer, which promises to be a multimedia extravaganza, with sounds and visuals for a total psychedelic trip. Buckle your seatbelts for a journey into outer space, if you manage to catch these shows, you are in going to be in for one hell of a ride!
The third single, Alien Animal, is set to be released on June 15th.
