Designer Drugs Launches Sex Cult Records and Album The Drugs Are in Control + Free Downloads
Designer Drug – noun: an artificially made drug used for pleasure. Designer Drugs – noun: a blow-your-mind “punishing electro-punk” group from Sex Cult Records whose sole purpose is to drop panties and make you dance. Michael Vincent Patrick and Theodore Paul Nelson have been not-so-quietly working their way up the ladder since their first full-length album release in 2011, which released on the top 10 on iTunes. The release of their sophomore project brings new collaborations, a new sound, a new label, and an interview with Billboard.
Designer Drugs actually started making their second album soon after the release of their first, but Patrick spoke to Billboard about the continued delay. With heavy touring and Theodore Paul Nelson finishing medical school (I know, right?!), the process was put off. The group also had disagreements with their old label Ultra, which delayed the process even further. They broke out of that mess and decided to release the album on their own label Sex Cult Records. Patrick also confessed to Billboard about their overall sound.
“I think we started underground then our sound really came en vogue around 2010-2011 but I think right now it’s not. We are really excited to be releasing the music we are because it’s not trendy. A lot of our fans are excited too because everyone is making EDM big room shit and they are looking for something heavier and more aggressive which is how we prefer to roll.”
Fans of Designer Drugs will be happy to hear that their new stuff is certainly the same style with which they’re familiar, but doesn’t push the same beats over and over. The group refuses to be mainstream and they will always push the envelope. As if their music wasn’t intense enough, even the logo for Sex Cult is surely not for virgin eyes, it can be seen in the teaser video for their new album below. The Drugs are in Control will be out March 10th. In case 4 days is too long to wait, fans can download their single “In Your Eyes” feat Catiana Van Dinh and “Crystal” for free:
