off the "7 Inch Vinyls" project, Sweatyfrog is proud to announce
world-reknowned UK DJ Danny Howells as the first in
a series of vinyl figures based on Club Gods from around the world.
The project is a
of personality and design: Quinlando
(AKA Bufalo Club) decks out the design for this premiere with the
design-talent that has made him well-known in NYC.
His work has been seen in print, cloth, and 3D sculptures -- check
the Pictoplasma series for a taste of his presence.
The Danny Howells figure is 7 tall, and comes with four points
of articulation: movement in the neck, shoulders, and torso. The
precision accessories include a turntable in the mold
of tribal drums that are accompanied by a pair of record mats
records that actually spin freely when placed in the spindle. A
wire connects the back of the figure to the
middle of the turntable -- the music from Dannys mind is being
translated to the turntables with a direct technological connection.
Completing the cyber sound/mind connection is his ear,
which is molded in the form of a speaker. The figures
release date is set for October 25 and he's limited
to 500 pieces -- it
will be scarce, but can be purchased from both retail stores
and directly from our website.
