DESCRIPTION:
Part 1 of 3 Part Series. 2x12" Lush Deep House With Tech Edge. Callistoo Was a Prolific Producer of Deep House. He Was Particularly Active in The Llate 90s And Early 2000s.

From Boston's Dana Kelley aka Callisto is a man whose music has long been the subject of much deserved adulation. A student of the deep and soulful, an explorer of the melodic and galactic, and an artist who manages to capture imaginations with his supremely crafted sonics. He is a much missed artist, someone who departed the physical too early, but the body of work he left behind has spoken to generations of listeners, DJ's and fans in equal measure.

This, the first of 3 compilations based around his golden period of productions for the legendary Chicago label Guidance Recordings, sees some of Dana's most highly coveted work featured side by side, all together in one place. A celebration of the man's music, his vision and the forward looking nature of his music that is still intact today. It's hard to think of someone with a more unique style and with a truer idea of their own sound-world. Callisto takes us deep inside, into other worlds with his own individualistic take on house, techno, ambient and even jungle and D&B.

These compilations celebrate one of the most idiosyncratic artists from the second wave of US house music producers, a truly essential body of work presented here respectfully, sourced from all audio sources courtesy of Above Board Projects, Guidance Recordings and Dana's family. Mastered by Curved, London and with special artwork by Atelier Superplus featuring a never before seen image of Dana from his family's photo albums.

Last FM Information on Callisto

Please note the information is done on a artist keyword match and data is provided by LastFM.
There is more than one artist with this name. 1) Callisto is a Finnish experimental metal band (Turku, Finland 2001-present). Trying to fit the post-metal outfit Callisto into one single category hardly does the band justice. Founded in 2001, the sextet play a timeless, downbeat yet melancholic style of music that is rich in nuances, draws from numerous sources and doesn't really have any obvious fellow creatures or points of comparisons. Callisto's debut True Nature Unfolds was recorded in 2003 by the the late Mieszko Talarczyk of Nasum fame and was introduced to Earache Records a year later through Johannes Persson from Cult of Luna, earning them worldwide distribution. The band's sophomore album "Noir", released in 2006, still drawing from modern sludge also introduced subtle jazz leanings, heavy use of mellotron and experimentation with unconventional rock instruments such as the saxophone and the flute. 2009 marked another experimental shift in style, taking some distance from the more instrumental material, Callisto composed a vocal record presenting a new member Jani Ala-Hukkala handling the vocals. The songs on ”Providence” are built upon layers of melodies, using a broader palette they’ve coloured their sound with twangy guitars, mellotrons, prog rock overtones and a singing style that can be traced back to 90’s-era vocalists like Layne Stayley. Both those familiar and new to the band will find a lot to digest in the majestic compositions and cryptic lyrics which often revolve around theological subjects. On "Providence" Callisto has once again joined forces with old-time producer, engineer Jonas Olsson who also worked on the Precambrian record by The Ocean. The artwork is contributed by Martin Kvamme of Unit Delta Plus (Fantomas, Satyricon, Turbonegro). 2) Callisto is the name of an ambient electronic music group consisting of David Wright and Dave Massey. 3) Callisto is deep house producer Dana Kelley aka DKMA, active from 1997-2001 on Guidance Recordings.
