New to the Westbury family Jerome Myer aka Von D is back with his new album “Castle Life” out now On Chateau Bruyant Records. France -based DJ and producer, Von D, is renowned for his ability to fill dance floors, fuse genres and hold his own in collaborations with some of the biggest names in underground music.
Castle Life is more than an album, this project which has had a lot of attention and commitment put into it, so much so that Von D moved his whole studio and living station to Chateau Ephemere. A sanctuary which allows creative’s to come and immerse in the world of art.
The 10 track concept album based on an analogue production process you can sense the sound being processed through old-school analogue equipment such as spring reverbs, analogue tape delays, Valve EQs, compressors and a big old analogue mixing desk that Von D had the pleasure of manipulating live recordings. Castle life features the likes of MC singing Fats, Phephe, Pupajim and Murray Man all complimenting to the final body of work of soul, digital reggae, dub and bass music, making it music that is authentic for any listener.
