US Review: DR CHRISPY “VHS REMIXED”

“VHS Remixed is a wondrous, highly emotive and ongoingly enticing work of musical art that builds on certain tracks from the original, whilst at the same time surpasses all expectations as to how a remix album can shine new lights on still-fresh music.”

Title – ‘VHS Remixed’
Artist – Dr. Chrispy

For those not in the know, Dr. Chrispy (aka Dr. Chris Boshuizen) is an award-winning aeronautical engineer, music producer, and songwriter dedicated to sharing his love of both Music and Space Exploration.

Following the release of his 2019 singles ‘Drive’ and ‘Voyager at the Heliopause’ (with music video), Dr. Chrispy is now proud to announce an exciting new collaboration with a group of innovative producers entitled VHS Remixed.

The original VHS album was Dr. Chrispy’s first full-length release, which ranked #8 on the Synth wave Radio Best Albums of 2018 list, and was widely praised with us here at Exclusive Magazine calling it “a wonderfully ambient, bouncy, fun, even thoughtful at times collection of instrumental tracks.”

For the new VHS Remixed project (released on November 22nd, 2019 via Interplanetary records), the tracks of VHS have been reimagined by producers from all over the world including The Stunt Man, Psybolord, T-ROM, Kevin Ochoa, Manor Sound, Always Romantic, Synthapex, and B Wiley.

The resulting collaborations have created an album that elevates the original VHS to brand new heights that I would like to think that even Dr. Chrispy (a nickname that was given to him by his NASA co-workers) himself could never have imagined!

1. ‘Follow the Wild Geese’ (T-ROM Remix)
2. ‘Be There Soon’ (The Stunt Man’s 13 Bit Remix)
3. ‘Sleeping in Tokyo’ (Kevin Ochoa Remix)
4. ‘Be There Soon’ (Manor Sound Remix)
5. ‘Be There Soon’ (T-ROM Remix)
6. ’60 Miles Up’ (by Always Romantic)
7. ‘Muromigawa’ (Synthapex Remix)
8. ’60 Miles Up’ (Kevin Ochoa Remix)
9. ‘Vancouver’ (Manor Sound Remix)
10. ‘Be There Soon’ (B. Wiley Remix)
11. ‘Follow the Wild Geese’ (Instrumental)

As I’m sure you all know by now, the original VHS album was a delightfully thoughtful collection of ambient electro instrumental tracks that Dr. Chrispy began writing back in 2003.

Well, I am glad to report that VHS Remixed is a wondrous, highly emotive and ongoingly enticing work of musical art that builds on certain tracks from the original, whilst at the same time surpasses all expectations as to how a remix album can shine new lights on still-fresh music.

Much like the original album, it’s as if Dr. Chrispy himself was traveling to work high above us on a daily routine, for work his job as an aerospace engineer, of course, for if you listen carefully to the tracks, never allowing any of them to merely drift above and over and away from you, you can most definitely hear the majesty of our universe embedded within each of them.

The contributing artists definitely bring their own unique perspectives to the project. The Stunt Man (aka Greg Mindorff) is a music producer, DJ, fellow space enthusiast and Grammy-nominated Mastering Engineer from Vancouver, BC, Canada.

As well as contributing a remix, The Stunt Man also mastered VHS Remixed.

Psybolord is a Moscow-based producer who has gone from deathcore to electronic music. In his tracks, techno merges with Russian folk motifs and classical music organically gets along with synth wave and French electro.

Tyler Romanishin (aka T-ROM) was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to California after spending five years in the Marine Corps. T-ROM aims to push the boundaries of House and electronic music while still keeping it catchy and danceable.

Kevin Ochoa loves dance music and pushing the boundaries of sound, and can often be found teaching FL Studio Master Classes at Music Conventions.

Michael Reyna (aka Manor Sound) is a San Francisco-based alt-pop and future bass producer. He utilizes the contrast of ambient textures and hard-hitting trap drums to create sonic environments that are both soothing and exciting.

Always Romantic, from Sevastapol in the Russian Federation, released his eponymous debut synth wave album earlier this year, and contributed a full cover version of ’60 Miles Up’ to VHS Remixed.

Hadfes Oblivion is the man behind Synthapex. With a background in metal, Hadfes Oblivion has played in a number of bands and now, with Synthapex, is exploring the electronic and synth wave genres.

Furthermore, the group recently released their breathtakingly cinematic music video ‘Gone This Night,’ featuring a short cameo appearance by Dr. Chrispy!

B Wiley is a producer, musician, and DJ whose mission is to bridge the gaps between the soulful and darker sounds of electronic, hip-hop, funk, and psychedelic.

He pulls influences from all directions to create his ever-changing sound that is somewhere between the dark and the light, the electronic and organic.

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

What we have here is a new collective coming together to embrace some of those works, take them away, re-cultivate them into something more like themselves, and then repopulate them back into the universe for all to further enjoy.

Basically put, VHS Remixed, much like the original album, is an auditory travel diary, inviting you along to hear and experience the evolution from Dr. Chris Boshuizen, Space Scientist, to Dr. Chrispy, the Artist, to Creator Supreme at the helm of his own musical space station where all the sights and sounds have now been reimagined by wickedly talented producers from all over the world.

DR CHRISPY (aka Dr. Chris Boshuizen) is an award-winning aeronautical engineer, music producer, and songwriter dedicated to sharing his love of both Music and Space Exploration. Following the release of his 2019 singles Drive and Voyager at the Heliopause (with music video), DR CHRISPY is now proud to announce an exciting new collaboration with a group of innovative producers titled VHS REMIXED.

The original VHS album was DR CHRISPY’s first full-length release, which ranked Number 8 on the Synthwave Radio Best Albums of 2018 list, and was widely praised with Exclusive Magazine calling it “a wonderfully ambient, bouncy, fun, even thoughtful at times collection of instrumental tracks.” 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.” Chris began writing VHS in 2003 while traveling as an aerospace engineer, capturing the vibe of each place and moment in time he visited.

DR CHRISPY featured on SpaceConnectOnline.com with his new single “DRIVE”

Screen Shot 2019-09-23 at 4.12.15 PM

https://www.spaceconnectonline.com.au/operations/3720-aussie-space-scientist-reveals-latest-music-single

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.

Chris bought his own computer in 1998, but using it for homework was an afterthought. Instead he built an audio workstation complete with an 8-channel studio sound card and mixing desk and set out to learn studio engineering and mixing. He also took up frequent guitar lessons, but over time his music workstation was replaced with a laptop, and as his space career took off, Chris naturally developed a new habit of producing electronic music while traveling.
