Interviews

Dino Felipe, "Like a Snake Biting Its Tail," Returns to His Rock Roots with Rockettes

The illustrious, brilliant Dino Felipe is anything but musically predictable. He's also one of the most prolific artists and interesting people you'll ever encounter, if you're fortunate enough to encounter him yourself. 

Thanks to Tachyons Records, with Rockettes, the Felipe will have released over 55 albums. It's soon to be pressed on what the Miami-native calls: "DIY vinyl. The finest." He's thrilled this will be Tachyons' first release. 

"I am very happy with this one," Felipe admits of his collection of songs created over the past four years, "This is a rare thing for a defeatist like me." 

Though we'll have to wait till mid-December to pick up a copy at Radio-Active or Sweat Records, a video for the first song, "Anything You Got," written and performed with This Heart Electric's Ricardo Guerrero, will be up on the web within two weeks. We spoke with the musician about, well, everything, and as we expected, he delivered a raw, thoughtful interview.
