Darren Sylvester is For You


ForYou_SingleCover#2Renowned Melbourne artist, musician and Chapter Music superstar Darren Sylvester has just released a 15 minute instrumental track entitled For You.

For You is the soundtrack to Darren’s art installation of the same name, and has been a much-talked about feature of the National Gallery of Victoria’s massive Melbourne Now exhibition. For You takes the form of an illuminated dance floor, with a palette inspired by a range of Yves St Laurent cosmetics (specifically Les Essentials Rouge Pur Couture, La Laque Couture and Rouge Pur Couture Range Revolution lipsticks, Mar- rakesh Sunset Palette, Palette City Drive, Ombres 5 Lumiéres and Pure Chromatics eyeshadows, and Radiance blush).

Sylvester recorded the minimal yet hip-shaking track as a collaboration with Super Melody’s James Cecil (who also worked on Darren’s suave Chapter album of 2013, Off By Heart), and Conrad Standish of futurist dub pop duo Standish/Carlyon (who also provided some seriously funky slap bass).

For You is now available from the Chapter Music Bandcamp (with iTunes and other digital webstores to follow shortly) as a standalone single or as a free bonus track on the Off By Heart album.

It’s also up on Soundcloud and Youtube!

Melbourne Now closes this Sunday March 23.
