Perry Farrell is a man of many hats. The Jane’s Addiction and Porno For Pyros front man, reality TV star, founder of Lollapalooza, general humanitarian and rock and roll icon is no stranger to dance music. Farrell’s latest effort in the electronic/dance world- PerryEtty (with his lovely wife Etty Farrell)- is sure to set dance-floors ablaze with his latest styley brand of eargasm. On July 26th “Applause for You” hit the store shelves along with remixes of the track from Sonic C and Junior Sanchez. These tracks are part of an EP with an as of yet unknown release date. The keyboard rhythms and bass guitar slaps recall an early eighties sound that may remind you of some Billy Ocean song (who’s title you can’t seem to remember), while layers of manipulated vocal samples frame a driving chorus delivered by the duo. The electronic percussion is plentiful and the remixes almost rival the original in appeal. This catchy, danceable number is pop hook city tempered by the edge that Farrell carries with him everywhere he goes.
Look for both PerryEtty vs Chris Cox and Joachim Garraud to perform at this year’s Lollapalooza Saturday, August 6 in Grant Park, Chicago at “Perry’s,” where festival-goers can have the ultimate electronic music experience. Now going into its fourth year at the festival, “Perry’s” has been expanded for 15,000+ fans and will be tented. “Muscular beats,” FARRELL says. “That’s the theme.” Other artists that will appear at “Perry’s” include Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Kid Cudi, The Bloody Beatroots Death Crew 77, Afrojack, Modeselektor, Skrillex, Chuckie, The Glitch Mob, Super Mash Bros., 12th Planet, Busy P, The Cool Kids, Daedelus, Feed Me, Jackmaster, Collie Buddz, Savoy, Kyle Lucas & Captain Midnite, Ana Tijoux, Midnight Conspiracy, DJ Neil Armstrong, Light and Lady D.
