Joyride and Crabbz- I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas (Make It Reindeer out 12/12/12) by Joyride (One Day) published on 2012/12/10 22:54:09 +0000 "MAKE IT REINDEER" AVAILABLE 12/12/12 Christmas: Traditionally a time where people celebrate the birth of a Mexican oracle, share goodwill, give and receive gifts and grow to hate their family a little bit more. Mum is in the kitchen ruining the potato salad. Your brother is listening to How To Dress Well in his old room after muttering "I can't wait to get back to Chippendale" and storming off. Uncle Eric is on the horribly out of tune, dust-covered piano trying to remember the chords to "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." This moment is what these 7 tracks were recorded for. Joyride and Crabbz have a dream that, through the power of Christmas standards, some of the pain that comes with the festive season can be alleviated. A dream that somewhere, a 19 year old girl will have the forethought and decency to put these seven carols on her iPod, ready to pounce when the conversation lulls at 6:30pm on Christmas Day. Enter: MAKE IT REINDEER. A record spawned from a delicate balance of musical competency and having too much time on one's hands. Joyride is a singer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, DJ and Christmas-lover. He is widely known for his work as Spit Syndicate's DJ and as a member of the One Day Crew, along with Horrorshow, Spit Syndicate and Jackie Onassis. He has also written and performed with the who's who of Australian Hip Hop, including Illy, Urthboy, Hermitude, The Tongue and more. Crabbz is widely regarded as one of Sydney's better Jazz pianists. Unfortunately, he currently wastes his talents playing with Sydney party band Sticky Fingers as well as lending a helping hand to the One Day Crew and other Australian Hip Hop outfits when they need piano licks for their beats. His arm may have been twisted (albeit gently) to be involved in this project. The two have combined to create a release that caters for even the most "I hate you mum! *slams door*" rebellious teen to be able to reconnect with the spirit of the season, whilst also having it be not only listenable, but pleasurable, for the "older" generations as well. This Christmas, let Joyride's creamy baritone vocals and Crabbz's magic fingers ease you through the "most wonderful time of the year". lol imagine Crabbz's magic fingers easing you through something. Gross lol.
