About

UPDATE #2 - We Are At 100 Backers!

You guys are freaking AWESOME! Many people talk the talk but very few walk the walk, and you guys are definitely making strides.

With only 11 Days left, we know that our dreams are slowly coming within arms reach. We know that with your continued support we can defeat the evil naysayers that seek to ban our beloved Twinkies from being distributed to the hands of the righteous! 

 Wait... What??? Oh I'm sorry that's the wrong Kickstarter. Stay tuned for our NEXT Kickstarter campaign "The Return of The Twinkie" 

 On a serious note, we do love and appreciate you all. This has been a long process and at various points we have wanted to give up but you guys are keeping us in the game! Thanks so much! 

Drink Responsibly! 

 -D.O.S.

How We Started

We've known each other for quite some time now. If you were to compare our birth certificates, you might even come to the conclusion that we are brothers. Money McFly (born Nicholas Warley, 1986) and Nyse Carter (born Jeffrey Warley,1987) began making music together right around the time of that whole Y2K scare (what a load of crap by the way), and have been dedicated to songwriting and music production ever since.

Why The Name D.O.S.

We came up with the name D.O.S. as a double entendre in that 1) the word "dos" (the Spanish word for two) reflects that there are two people in D.O.S.; there are two genres upon which our music is based; and despite the fact that we are brothers, we have two VERY different personalities, and 2) the full name Definition Of Success symbolizes that success comes in all shapes and sizes. We define Success as being two well-educated African American men who make good music while continuing to stay true to our family, friends, and fans.

Who Is the Better Artist/Better Dresser/Better Looking

Well clearly Nyse Carter possesses all the better attributes and in the near future will join the ranks of Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, and Sisqo (remember Sisqo?) as a great solo artist while McFly will be doing Nyse's Laundry.

(Payback for me having to type this whole thing by myself) [insert evil laugh]

It's very difficult to describe our style of music because we like to do it all. With this album we are focusing on our love for the party lifestyle because... WE ARE PARTY ANIMALS! The songs that we have completed so far are unlike anything you have heard from D.O.S. before. You will get goosebumps, you will wanna dance, you will jump on top of tables and sing every word, you will get pissed off that the DJ hasn't played it yet! Yea... It's that good.

We produced and wrote the majority of the songs slated to be on the album and to be honest, it's F@#king LEGENDARY. We have a ton of features on the album by great artists, some of whom you know and others of whom you will become instant fans.

We entitled the album Drink Responsibly! because we wanted to continue to remind people that drinking and having a great time is fine and we're all for it so long as it's done responsibly. This album will surely be the DEFINITION of who we are and you will love it.

The money will go to a few things:

Recording Costs: 

Recording an album is an expensive ordeal. In order to deliver the best result at the highest quality, we need the help of professionals with a good ear for great music. We've already spent roughly $15,000 of our recording budget and plan to use a third of what we make on Kickstarter to finish the recording of Drink Responsibly! We're perfectionists and we will not release anything unless it's AWESOME! That's our commitment to our craft.

Packaging: 

We're VERY excited about this. The physical copy of the Drink Responsibly! album will include an album booklet that will take you on a journey of what a typical party will look like when D.O.S. music is played. Our vision for the illustrations will draw from our prior experiences of crazy insane FRAT PARTIES, Impromptu house parties, and of course Pre-game Parties. The kickstarter funds will go toward the Illustrator's fee, the printing and duplication, and shrink wrapping (Yes, we're taking this seriously).  

Distribution:

Who's that playing on the radio??? Yes, the majority of the funding will go toward getting our music in front of the people who matter the most, Our FANS! Allocating funds for distribution allows us to push our music in stores like Best Buy, FYE, WalMart, etc. It also allows us to send our music to College Radio Stations all around the world. This will not be an album that you will soon forget and the greatest part of all, you get to tell everyone how you made it all possible.
