Wow, 2013 has been very good to Sykophunk Productions so far! Triple Vision is doing 4 to 5 shows a month. We’re getting a lot of local Fort Wayne love, and I can’t begin to express how much it is appreciated. We’re doing something special soon as a thank you to our fans. There is so much talent in this city, and we’ve had the privilege lately of jamming and networking with some amazing people. It’s a great scene to be a part of.

The Sykophunk studio is also back in action, as we lay down demo tracks for a few summer releases. Keep your third eye open for some upcoming collabs and new material from Triple Vision, joe DOE, the elusive Dostah Shilailee, and of course the Democalypse prequel Happocrisy. Plus more live shows – hopefully spreading out regionally towards the end of the summer. I am also continuing composing/sound design work on two huge projects: an animated horror film and a dark post-apocalyptic video game.

True, I haven’t posted on this blog in quite some time. But rest assured, Sykophunk Productions has not slowed down a bit. We’re preparing to relocate back to the midwest, to reunite the Triple Vision team and throw some all new flavor at the world. So I’ve been doing my best to wrap up all current projects & unleash them upon the world.

Recently, Sykophunk Productions dropped two digital mixtapes: You and Your Friends are Dead. Game Over by joe DOE, and the collab collection VERSEatility from Jahg and joe DOE. We released both of these on Bandcamp as a “set your own price” model. You know the deal: donations always appreciated but not required. The most important thing is that if you like what you hear, share it with your friends and enemies & bump it for the rEvolution Underground.  Another project I’m currently working on is Abandoned Revisited. I had to take one more trip to the asylum before leaving the Hudson Valley for a while, so new videos for the Abandoned series are inevitably being produced.

So, what’s on the horizon for Sykophunk? The next release will probably be the joe DOE & GrimWitcH collab album, followed shortly by a new Triple Vision album/mixtape. Hopefully some more collabs with Christel South as well. And somewhere in there, I’ll find the time to finish and release Happocrisy, the prequel to Democalypse. As the fire of summer burns off, melting into the inspirational smoke of autumn, keep your Third Eye open for more epic awesomeness in the near future…

When the Nocternal consumed us, we knew in our collective subconscious that it was our own doing. It was civilization’s inevitable doomsday. A world that we created, destroyed by the darkness spawned from that very world. A karmic cycle come full circle…

The sequel to our 2010 album Democalypse, Nocternal paints a very dark picture – a future world of destruction and death caused by mankind’s failure to correct its own mistakes. Through eerily atmospheric and distrubingly gritty tracks of urban gothic soundscapes, the Sykophunk “team” unites to bring the final chapter of the trilogy with the proper amount of both mood and message. You can preview the entire Nocternal album on joe DOE’s Bandcamp page – download it if you like it, set your own price. You can order it on CD through the Sykophunk Store. This album will also be available as a pledge reward for the soon-to-be-launched Precipice fundraiser, the upcoming video game for which Sykophunk Productions will be providing music and audio design. Enjoy the darkness (after all, you helped create it!) and keep your third eye open for the final release in the trilogy, the prequel: Happocrisy.
