Well, ladies and gentlemen… We’ve found our new favorite artists. Yes. It’s true. And what’s better? They’re working with us here at HOF, all the way from Canada. If you haven’t heard the name Modisound yet, it’s time.

The duo, Mark and Francis, have recently unleashed their debut EP Yellow To Purple via Stardust Records, one of the most respected independent disco labels out there. And as the hype around Daft Punk’s new album grows overwhelming, Modisound’s EP will fix anyone’s cravings for those sexy, upbeat grooves.

Starting with “Let Your Hair Down”, we’ve got a groovy piano driven house tune with some exotic vocals from Maryse Bernard. “Champagne” keeps the groove going from there, but in a more synthetic and synthy style. “Driew” is a little more experimental in structure and sound design than the other tracks, throwing in some vocoder sounds, live drums, FM synthesis, and a bit of distortion, which segway’s nicely into the last track “Strut”. “Strut” contains all the opposite elements of “Let Your Hair Down”, being much heavier, distorted, and clunky.

Mister Gavin throws down a really funky, smooth, and classy remix of “Let Your Hair Down”, which catered to Maryse’s voice perfectly. The Late Night Hustle remix is also a great addition to the EP, showcasing a different house style which borderlines progressive house but still keeps it funky. And finally, DJ EQ’s remix of “Champagne” is a more loop-based version of the original. He said he liked the original so much he wanted to stay true to it but add his own unique touch.

So, disco lovers, rejoice! We’ve truly got a fantastic selection of songs here that will get any day or night going.

I asked the guys what’s up with the name ‘Yellow To Purple’, and they said “it kind of describes the transition of styles from something very light and dancey (yellow) to something darker and heavier (purple).” I love it!

I grew up in Sacramento in a time where there was no young entertainment company like HOF to look up to. I met Tony in LA while I was managing LBCK in Long Beach. I kind of knew Damian from middle school. And I didn't know Byron even though we went to the same middle school. But when we first started partying together in 2011, it just made sense for me...someone who's passionate about the business side of music...to align with them...who're passionate about the business side of events. I believe what I'm doing here...running the site and the social media and the artist management/publicity and the label...is creating a means to better spotlight and support the emerging artists we truly believe in. They say no one's ever "made it" out of Sacramento. It's my ultimate mission to change that. As our boy Marcus says, "We're bringing Sacramento to The World...and we're bringing The World to Sacramento."
