RIP - OUR FRIEND CHARLIE COOPER

Last week, the music world and the world at large lost a great man in Charlie Cooper, known to many as one half of the Chicago/New Orleans duo Telefon Tel Aviv. Charlie left us on the eve of his group’s masterpiece Immolate Yourself ; iTunes has a special section featuring Telefon’s collected works for you to enjoy and share with others.

Two years ago, Ghostly also lost one of our main inspirations and heroes, David ‘Disco D’ Shayman, who produced songs for Santogold, 50 Cent, Trick Daddy, and many more new and upcoming musicians. For fans and friends of Disco D, you can keep up with news and updates on this Facebook page.

Information on donations and memorials in Charlie’s honor is forthcoming. The Ann Arbor teen center Neutral Zone accepts donations on Dave’s behalf to benefit their electronic music programs.
