Death By Designer – by ISO, JR and Jon Savage
ISO recently was invited by Jon Savage to form part of a new 5FM feature named MashLab and do a collaboration with JR. The result: A song by ISO, JR and Jon Savage entitled Death By Designer.
The song was written and recorded between the 11th and 27th of June 2013 and the recording was done at Marko’s home studio in Pretoria, Jon’s studio in Cape Town and Open Room Studios in Johannesburg. Richard recorded the guitars at Jon’s studio, whilst the drums and vocals were recorded at Open Room Studios in Greenside. The song was mixed in LA by Will Brierre and was mastered in Seattle by Troy Glessner. The song can be described as heavy with hard hitting lyrics, with a signature massive chorus by ISO.
“The MashLab experience was great. With ISO, we don’t ever collaborate with any other artists so this was really something that put us right outside of our comfort zone. That said, JR was the perfect candidate. We also soon realized time and time again that Jon had very similar ideas to ours for the song. JR brought some really forward and strong content to both the writing and recording process, and that pushed us to really think about what we were saying and what the song represented. JR and Jon really got us to get our creative flow going. On the technical side, JR wrote all of his rap parts. Marko produced the song and wrote the chorus with Richard’s assistance and Jon supervised the whole process and always gave his input. Richard played the guitar, Marko played the drums, JR rapped and Richard sang.”
