David Foral “Stone Soup” Mixtape Background:

What started out as an idea for an EP, David Foral announced that on August 23rd, he’ll release a mixtape titled Stone Soup that includes other artists and friends he has a history of working with from over the years. At it’s foundation, the mixtape is hip-hop with DJ cuts and samples accented by the influential songwriting of other artists who contributed their own song writing of dub, alternative rock, pop and electro, all within the same key and tempo to round out the 26minute mix-tape.

“At first I wanted to put out a 6 song EP that showcased music I was working on. I wanted to come up with a special way to do this and I came up with the idea of making a mixtape,” Foral explains of the mix-tape’s origin. “I used to DJ so I knew that when it came time to mix the songs together it would be a lot easier if everything was in the same key and tempo. I have a lot of friends that are Producers, DJs and Musicians and they’re always working on tracks. I know from producing music that most of the songs that get created never see that light of day. I knew if I started asking around that people would have music sitting on a hard drive somewhere. I started reaching out to people and was surprised with how many people were willing to contribute.”

One of the people that David reached out to was Ballyhoo! guitarist/vocalist, Howi Spangler, who can be heard from 10:02 – 11:48 on the mix-tape with his contribution, titled “Another Way To Die.”

We caught up with Howi, who tells The Pier: “I’ve known Dave since his days with Chapter 11 and we had both worked on the early versions of The Pier website (a little trivia there). We were playing in Florida and we caught up at a bar in town that night and drank whiskey and bullshitted for a couple hours. Dave contacted me a few weeks after that about this project and I was excited about it. I’ve been doing more production lately and thought it would be a great opportunity to mix it up and do something different. I love making beats and playing around with weird sounds. Seems like he has a lot talent on this project! The best part is that it’s free and people have no excuse not to check it out.”
