Cross My Heart Hope To Die-Vita E Morte-EP

Cross My Heart Hope To Die is the spark caused by the collision of producers DJ Muggs and Andrew Kline. DJ Muggs is a Grammy Nomintated producer best known as a founding member of the multi platinum rap group, Cypress Hill. As a producer, he has also created remixes for U2 and Depeche Mode, collaborated with UK trip hop artist, Tricky, on the album Juxtapose, and released a downtempo electronica album called Dust. Muggs and Kline, though from different musical backgrounds, share a love of a dark, cinematic music and the fusion of their talents creates something you would not expect. This sound is complemented by the ethereal songstress, Brevi, who elevates the tracks with her sexy and hauntingly beautiful vocals. The final piece to the puzzle is supplied by visionary Sean Bonner, who spearheads the artistic aspects of the project.
The interactive art side of this collective has been manifesting itself on the streets for close to two years. Unsuspecting pedestrians around the world have been enjoying and participating in this project – sometimes without even knowing it. Inconspicuous art installations and street music boxes have been hidden in such cities as Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Rome, Belfast, Prague, and Vienna. CMHHTD wants to manipulate the way people find music; to bring back the thrill of discovery. Something sorely needed in a digital age where we are constantly bombarded with aural stimulation.
