LAND OF 1000 CHANCES 2-12-13

Land Of 1000 Chances 
February 12, 2013

Land Of 1000 Chances, (Dj) Day’s second release, finds him at his most experimental and ambitious. Though the album spans diverse genres from instrumental rock and jazz to straightforward hip hop, it remains firmly rooted in the outsider beat-smith field Day helped pioneer with his seminal release The Day Before (MPM, 2008).

On Land of 1000 Chances, Day mines a set of emotional and deeply personal events to procure a swirling mixture of samples and live playing. Executive produced by legendary Thes One of People Under The Stairs and accompanied by Kat O1O (Crown City Rockers), Ken Belcher and a host of other top players, the album transcends the beatmaker genre and becomes a living opus. An honest and beautiful instrumental album that is already becoming a favorite of critics worldwide:

“Something in the energy of the desert, a magical and funky energy, just permeates through the veins of DJ Day. And you hear that in his music – it’s beautiful and thoughtful and spiritual and it’s a aural window into the soul of this dude. Decidedly 21st Century yet still harkens back to all the decades of history and influence of everything that came before it. Truly gorgeous music, and it strikes me to my core each time I listen to it.”- Cosmo Baker (The Rub)

“Introspective yet candid. In Day’s ‘Land Of 1000 Chances’, there’s a sincerity that bares itself in every beat and live instrument throughout this masterwork, as crisp and vast as a desert night. In the current climate of over-enhanced production, Day refreshingly strips it down, leaving the natural beauty of his arrangements with no makeup – no overstating of themes, rather implying or alluding in a way that reveals itself in multiple listens. While produced in essence from a b-boy approach, there’s a maturity and bravery that glows from this record down the shady and sunny paths of his life.” – Jeremy Sole (89.9 KCRW, LA)

The limited edition LP pressing (1000 units) features a PETA approved alternative leather, handmade casebound cover with foil stamping. Each LP is adorned with a removable Polaroid photograph on the front and custom wrapped.

Day, this album is so fresh. One of my favorite qualities about it is the cohesiveness of the whole album. It is a rarity nowadays to have an entire album that you can throw on and let it play without being tempted to just pick out a few cuts for a playlist and scrap the rest. Phenomenal work man.
