D-FELIC    

D-Felic

After 17 years of international experience as a DJ and producer, you could say that D-Felic is a force to be reckoned with. The ‘D-Felic LIVE’-shows are energetic and surprising, often supported by guest musicians and vocalists. The live sets consist of purely own productions and are characterized by “instant composing”, making each show a unique experience.

As a DJ he’s performed at countless clubs and festivals in The Netherlands. D-Felic is known and appreciated for his ʻFunky and Eclecticʼ sound, in which he seamlessly mixes Electronic Soul, Nu-jazz, Broken Beat, Deephouse, Afrobeat and Latin, into a sound you can’t stop dancing to.

His playing field has recently expanded towards Los Angeles, where’s he’s made over a dozen live appearances, and counting, as he regularly returns to what is slowly becoming his ‘home away from home’. His visits have not gone unnoticed, as they’ve resulted in several co-productions and remixes with and for artists like Mark de Clive Lowe, Rahsaan Patterson, Om’mas Keith, Erykah Badu & Shafiq Husayn

D-Felic’s reputation as a live artist, DJ and producer is growing as fast as his appetite and ambition, and now he’s ready to take on the rest of the world!

D-Felic D-Felic

Jazz trumpeter Takuya Kuroda is a forward-thinking musician with a bent toward mixing post-bop and adventurous soul-jazz. Born in Kobe, Japan, Kuroda followed his older trombonist brother into the local music scene, playing in big bands. After studying music in Japan, Kuroda relocated to Boston to attend the Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, Kuroda befriended upcoming jazz vocalist José James, who invited Kuroda to record with him. Kuroda appeared on James' 2010 sophomore album, Blackmagic, and later on No Beginning No End — for which he also wrote the horn arrangements.

After leaving Berklee, Kuroda moved to New York City, where he enrolled at the New School's Jazz and Contemporary Music program, graduating in 2006. After graduating, Kuroda quickly ensconced himself in the vibrant N.Y.C. jazz scene, performing with such artists as Junior Mance, Greg Tardy, Andy Ezrin, Jiro Yoshida, Akoya Afrobeat, Valery Ponomarev's big band, and others. In 2011, Kuroda released the independently produced album Edge, followed by Bitter & High and Six Aces in 2012.

In 2013, Kuroda signed with Blue Note Records and recorded his third solo album, the José James-produced Rising Son. Released in 2014, Rising Son featured a strong soul-jazz and hip-hop influence exemplified by the presence of several Roy Ayers compositions including "Everybody Loves the Sunshine," which featured James on vocals.

D-Felic ‘s - Are you ready for this? (part three)

For this 3rd EP in the series “Are you ready fort his?”, D-Felic is back on his downtempo beatmaking. Be ready for flippin’ beats, warm sounds and deep spaces. All very soulful as you know and can expect from D-Felic.

On the first track “Shades” you will hear Akwasi, on of D-Felic’s favorite Dutch MC’s.
Very relaxed tune to chill on with your shades on.

La Passion is the second track. A kinda weird track which you will love, when you are ready for it. On this track Sahr Ngaujah is taking care of the vocals. Sahr is a longtime friend of mister D-Felic. Sahr is a multidisciplinary artist/maker, crossing between the fields of film, theatre and music. Best known for his work as one of the creators of the musical FELA!, where he also started in the title role earning a Tony and Olivier nomination.

On the last track of this EP, D-Felic and Triece take you to paradise, beautiful harmonies on some broken beats. Triece was born and raised in the iconic city of Detroit "Motown". She started her career as a singer/ songwriter working with Grammy Award winning L.L. Cool J, International recording artist Amp Fiddler. Now she is working with, as she calls him, visionary producer, D-Felic.
