On May 6, producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist Dennis White (AKA Static Revenger) unveils his latest project Love Song Surprise. Co-produced by Supreme Beings of Leisure’s Ramin Sakurai and co-written by 2007 BBC world music award nominee Duke Mushroom (Bole 2 Harlem), Love Song Surprise is an electronic based record filled with skilful song writing/production and pure emotion.
Love Song Surprise has already garnered plenty attention through its first single “Sweetest Day.” The track was a top requested song on KCRW and was chosen by Britney Spears as her wedding song on the reality show Britney & Kevin: Chaotic. Trainwrecks aside, these ten tracks will get your heart pumping – one way or another.
"Most people who know my work, only know my Dance Music, so when they hear this (LSS), they're like- 'wow- this actually doesn't suck... how the hell are you singing love songs?!' What they don't realize is that before my couple of Dance Music hits, I used to sing in a Major Label band in the 90's- We had quite a big audience in Detroit back then- Kid Rock was our opening act for years- that's true!... I'm never sure if that part of the story is cool or tragic, but in any case- when you've fucked up as much as I have at love, you either become an alcoholic, or a great song writer.. so for years I've been writing songs with the voice of authority for every man who's screwed up a good thing. I seem to have perfected it..." (laughing, while knocking back a scotch neat).” – Dennis White
Love Song Surprise is Static Revenger’s return to music production after taking a year off to produce and direct two independent documentary films as part of SCION’S “Easy 10 film maker series.” One of the films, Castellars, was an immediate official selection of the Very Short Movie Film Festival in Los Angeles and was recently nominated for “Best Use of Music in a Documentary” by the Park City Film Music Festival,, which runs concurrent to Sundance. Castellars takes place in the Catalan region of Spain, and documents the centuries-old tradition of competitive human castle building. Watch highlights here.
