David Dallas on the Phantastiq Cypha

In 2009 Doc Holidae went to Australia and all people kept telling him was: you need to see New Zealand. Unfortunately he could not make his way over there, but lucky for us New Zealand sent over a representative; David Dallas.

Now working with Duck Down, David is making his move to start a Kiwi invasion on this side of the ocean. His recent visit to SXSW has only helped increase the buzz and with that CJLO’s Phantastiq Cypha is excited to be on the David Dallas bandwagon. We’re not only supporting David as fellow child of the commonwealth but as legitimate fans of his music.
