I chose Louis Armstrong to provide the soundtrack to the Beautiful Warriors for the whimsical nature of his music and its ability to bridge cultural boundaries with expressions of love.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 16, 2009
Battalion Armour presents Beautiful Warriors 2, a series of six holiday videos featuring six women from six ethnic backgrounds posing to Louis Armstrong Remixed by Apple Juice Kid. These semi-nude videos were shot in HD by Tishaun Dawson as a gift of love for the holidays. The music behind Beautiful Warriors 2, a jazz meets hiphop mix, is also available as a free download. The seven song album produced by Apple Juice Kid includes Keyboards, Bass and Guitar by Kevin Timmons, and Drums/Percussion by Stephen Levitin. "I chose Louis Armstrong to provide the soundtrack to the Beautiful Warriors for the whimsical nature of his music and its ability to bridge cultural boundaries with expressions of love. It takes a special type of sound to create the right mood for this ethnically diverse cast of women. The only producer who could give Louis’ music a new twist while respecting the perfection was Apple Juice Kid, who I first met while creating a video for his critically acclaimed Miles Davis Remix album."
The Beautiful Warriors 2 iPhone web app is full of behind the scenes photos, project notes and exclusives.
