Über Perry Farrell
Perry Farrell is surely one of rock's savviest exponents. His billion dollar Lollapalooza baby was instrumental in exposing alternative music formats to the masses and establishing a sense of commonality across an otherwise hopelessly fragmented demographic. Hell, he's the Dave Clark of the nineties. Musically speaking, Farrell is something of a gadabout. From Goth Metal in his first band, Psi Com, to Glam/Punk Metal in Jane's Addiction, to heavy rotation alterna-pop in Porno for Pyros, Farrell has covered a lot of stylistic bases. Continuing to expand the reach of his creative empire, Farrell branches out into dance mix territory on his latest solo outing. Apparently his experiences as a regularly gigging DJ around Los Angeles have piqued his appetite for super-mixed danceteria rhythms and turntablist high jinks. The metal edges have been smoothed down from his earlier work and his penchant for shimmering pop textures and lush ethereality brought to the fore.
