RIP Clare Fischer

The DaBang team are sad to learn of the death of Clare Fischer yesterday, a truly great musician whose orchestral work featured heavily in some of Prince's best songs.

His contributions to many purple classics were priceless, and his longtime collaboration with Prince has been deeply appreciated by fans. Besides working with Prince, he also worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Robert Palmer and Michael Jackson.

A fully accomplished musician with a long series of albums released by himself since the early 60s to the present day, Fischer will be remembered fondly by Prince fans for his exquisite string arrangements, and creativity.

RIP Clare Fischer.

Colour Palette Generator

Just discovered Degrave which is a site that generates a palette of colours from your own images. Simply pop in the URL and press go! Next time you're using Adobe and need to know what the code is for a colour simply palett-ify it!

MegaUpload closed down...

Which means that most (if not all) links on this blog are now dead.....
However don't worry folks - DaBang is looking into other ways of keeping you supplied with the funk!

EDIT: If any of you Funkateers didn't get chance to download some of the recent releases on DaBang before MegaUpload got busted, fear not!  Our intrepid team is in the process of replacing the links with shiny new ones!  Like we said - we're here to keep you full o' FREE* Funk!

EDIT2: Our Videowhiz did it again, now he combined both videoclips (DMSR) and the enhanced audio posted above. The result is 36m46 of watching pleasure.

Wedding Invitation Collection

Have just started creating some wedding invitations which has put me in a happy mood. I based this sample on the cameos I made recently. I think it would be great to personalise these with drawings of the actual bride and groom. I have used a combination of formal type and hand lettering which gives the final look a lovely handmade feel. 
I love the way many modern couples are giving an instant atmosphere to their upcoming event with their stationery and, sometimes, matching websites and blogs! 

Here's the drawing for the bride and groom cameo.
