"Beautiful Bells CD Release"

"...sonic collage layered with torn bits of rhythm, clipped brass, and half-formed electronic textures that sound like they're being spit out of a digitized sprinkler... drumming peeks its head out from behind the narcotic curtain and the broken beats evoke Johnny Vidacovich..." - Gambit Weekly

(Live PA) Rising New Orleans producer Justin Peake bringing the freshest from his blend of crunchy and intricately funked out rhythms matched with beautifully crafted melody and sounds. This is a one of a kind show. Frequent live collaborations with the Metakids visual specialists.

A bouquet of purple and yellow tulips sits in the mid-afternoon sunlight on Justin Peake's desk in his apartment turned studio in New Orleans. Surrounded by various equipment, guitars, keyboards, computers, an old drumset, percussion odds and ends, and books ranging from experimental music to feng shui and anthropology, Peake sits at the helm of a puddle of wires and controllers where he hones his craft. The craft: production. Since moving to New Orleans from Tuscaloosa, AL in 2007, Peake has been producing and releasing records in New Orleans under electronic monikers like Beautiful Bells and Submerge (with saxophonist Robin Boudreaux)and as a drummer/composer/producer for projects like Touch... even solo percussion recordings under his own name.

Beautiful Bells features the height of Peake's production talents as he constantly cranks out new grooves, textures, and songs that he has performed across the U.S. since 2005. In 2008, he released the debut Beautiful Bells record 'Phantom Pleasure' on a hand-assembled limited edition compact disc that came with oversized 7" artwork and hand numbering. Since its release, it has been met with overwhelming joy and appreciation from those whose ears it has fallen upon. The follow up release 'Lifecycles' is due to be released in September 2009 on his Articulated Works label.
