This is titled Drive and according to the PR blurb, features a high-tempo driving beat and a catchy instrumental hook.

“The single really captures the sensation of being behind the wheel and just driving. The soaring chorus in Drive brings to mind the feeling of being out on the open road, far away from life’s small problems,” it said.

That follows the release of his single, titled Voyager at the Heliopause, in June as a tribute to the NASA Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977 and which last year departed the solar system and is now travelling in interstellar space.

Last year he released his debut album titled VHS, a collection of instrumental tracks he began writing back in 2003 while travelling for work as an aerospace engineer in the US.

Each track was written in a different location, titled with the name of a city, airport code or local attraction and captures the vibe of each place and moment in time.

Dr Boshuizen grew up in Tumbarumba , NSW, and developed an early passion for space inspired by Voyager’s mission.

He dreamed of becoming an astronaut and since most US astronauts started out as pilots in the US Air Force, he sought to join the RAAF to become a fighter. He quickly discovered that could never be as he is colour blind.

After completing a doctorate in physics at the University of Sydney he scored a job at the NASA Ames Research Center in northern California, working on a range of projects, including a lunar lander, an electric airplane and the world’s smallest satellite called PhoneSat.

The nickname Dr Chrispy came from NASA co-workers.

In 2014 he won the Advance Global Award as a the Greatest Australian Not Living in Australia.

“I was always interested in space as a child. I remember reading about the Voyager I and II spacecraft reaching Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune, and being fascinated by the idea of one day going myself,” he said in an interview with the UK techno music website Steel City Collective.

“So from an early age I decided I wanted to work in the space industry. I am Australian, but Australia doesn’t have much space activity so after finishing my education I moved to the US.

“One of the coolest things I did was put an Android Nexus One smartphone into orbit around the Earth as a stand-alone satellite. This was a spacecraft that was almost like Sputnik with a camera, and it only cost $500.”

That developed from the realisation of Dr Boshuizen and NASA researchers that the typical smartphone from earlier this decade had more processing power and memory than the typical satellite of that era.

Three were launched in 2013, followed by a further two. These weren’t destined for long life – they had only onboard batteries for power – but were cheap and demonstrated that consumer grade electronics could function in space.

In 2010, he and two other NASA scientists founded Planet Labs, which runs a constellation of satellites producing Earth imagery.

All the while, Dr Boshuizen retained a passion for electronic music, doing much of his composing on a laptop while traveling.

DR CHRISPY, Renowned Australian Space Scientist, Aerospace Engineer, and Music Producer to Release the New Single “DRIVE”

Dr Chrispy - Drive - Cover 3000x3000

For Immediate Release – San Francisco, CA – DR CHRISPY (aka Dr. Chris Boshuizen) is an award-winning aeronautical engineer, music producer, and songwriter who has spent the last 16 years tragically torn between two loves: Music and Space Exploration. His new single “DRIVE” will release online everywhere music is streamed and sold on August 30, 2019. With a high-tempo driving beat and a catchy instrumental hook, the single really captures the sensation of being behind the wheel and just driving. The soaring chorus in “DRIVE” brings to mind the feeling of being out on the open road, far away from life’s small problems. “Sometimes we just need to get away from it all,” says DR CHRISPY, and he captures that sentiment perfectly on this new track.

DR CHRISPY runs his home studio in San Francisco where he is actively writing and recording new music. DR CHRISPY’s first full-length album VHS released in 2018 and was widely praised by national and international reviewers. A collection of mostly instrumental tracks, Chris began writing VHS in 2003 while traveling as an aerospace engineer. The tracks were written all around the world and capture the vibe of each place and moment in time.

Exclusive Magazine calls VHS, “a wonderfully ambient, bouncy, fun, even thoughtful at times collection of instrumental tracks,” while BabySue.com says, “Whether you’re out clubbing or at home trying to get things done, these nifty little rhythmic creations will likely be just what the doctor ordered to get things going.” VHS plays like an auditory travel diary, inviting you along to hear and experience the evolution from Dr. Chris Boshuizen, Space Scientist, to DR CHRISPY, the Artist.

DR CHRISPY released his next single “Voyager at the Heliopause” in June 2019. The track is a tribute to the NASA Voyager spacecraft, which launched in 1977 and has since returned stunning images from the solar system, inspiring Chris to pursue his passion for space. Accompanied by a music video featuring historically accurate animated recreations of those classic images, “Voyager at the Heliopause” is a soothing and ambient electro space jazz track.

Having worked at NASA for almost five years inventing new kinds of spacecraft, Chris went on to cofound the company Planet Labs, which launched and monitors over 200 spacecraft that create a daily map of the global environment. During all this, Chris spent nearly every spare moment writing music on the one instrument he always had with him: his laptop. Much of his music was written at airports or on planes, and over a 16-year period he has amassed an impressive catalog of material with over 300 tracks.

Wanting to get some of his music out to the world, Chris decided to pursue his art full-time, adopting the nickname “Chrispy” that was given to him by his NASA co-workers. Unlike other notable “doctors” in the music industry, DR CHRISPY has a PhD in Physics, and in 2014 he won the Advance Global Award for being the Greatest Australian Not Living in Australia. After completing his PhD in Physics at the University of Sydney he found a position at NASA Ames Research Center in Northern California, one of NASA’s 10 centers around the US. There Chris worked on several fascinating projects, including a lunar lander, an electric airplane, and he also co-invented the world’s smallest satellite called PhoneSat.

With the success of PhoneSat, Chris and his friends were emboldened to try something ambitious, so they left NASA to start Planet Labs. Today Planet Labs has launched over 200 satellites that were designed under Chris’s leadership. Leveraging his years of experience with computer music, Chris has taught the introductory workshop on electronic music production at the last two annual Taxi Road Rallies in Los Angeles.

Chris has no regrets about pursuing his space career, but always felt music would one day become his focus. With a lifetime of music production experience and a lower-stress job that afforded him a bit more free time, he assumed his alter-ego as DR CHRISPY and suddenly entered a prolific phase of writing with the feeling he now had something to say. DR CHRISPY’s goal as an artist is to connect music and tech while bringing a message of hope and empowerment to his audience.

In 2016, DR CHRISPY began creating lyrical songs in addition to his instrumental music. This material will be released on his next album project. Chris still hopes one day to take himself beyond the Earth’s atmosphere, and feels he still has the passion to start another space company one day. You can catch more of Chris’s space and technology thoughts on his personal twitter account at twitter.com/cboshuizen.

 

“DRIVE” will release online everywhere music is streamed and sold on August 30, 2019.

Belgium Review: BAYONICS “RESILIENCE”

Translated:

BAYONICS – RESILIENCE

For two decades, the ‘Bayonics’ formation has been bringing a musical mix of Hip Hop, Reggae, R&B, funk and ‘Latin music’ during their many performances in the Bay of San Francisco where the roots of most musicians that are part of this group are. . The central figure is Jairo Vargas, the blind singer of “Bayonics” who has turned his sometimes difficult life experiences into positive songs for the band’s first fully-fledged album entitled “Resilience”.

The first single from this twelve-track album is the song “Exile” that can be heard on the video, which is about the forced search for a new home after you were evicted from your previous home. The desperate search for a better life is viewed here from two different perspectives and in this song it is made clear that “Bayonics” also wants to convey a message in their music.

The influences of other formations from San Francisco Bay such as “Santana” and “Sly & The Family Stone” are clearly present in the music that “Baytonics” brings to “Resilience”. We hear that in songs such as “El Bajo”, “Soldier Dance”, the rhythmic “Olvidaste” and the highly danceable reggae song “Around The Way” in which the inspiring spirit of Bob Marley haunts.

Issues such as immigration, poverty and urbanization that cause entire neighborhoods to undergo an unprecedented transformation are not excluded in the “Bayonics” issues. But also more personal themes such as love and heartache are discussed in the songs on “Resilience” which in English means “resilience” and points to the flexibility that people need to survive in this hectic world.

In songs like “Runaway”, “We Gon Show” Em “,” Batalla En Babylon “and the acoustic” Not The One “,” Bayonics “wants to make the listener aware that this necessary resilience can be found everywhere as long as you are positive and optimistic keeps thinking. In this way the world will gradually become better and more livable for everyone. “Resilience” is therefore an album filled with songs that contain a message of love and forbearance and that is, in our opinion, a very noble objective of these “Bayonics”.
