Time Lapse Video - Michael Jackson Artwork By Owen Dippie

CELEBRATING THE KING OF POP!


Last Friday, Owen Dippie, one of New Zealand’s best street artists, donated his time and effort to paint a giant portrait of the KING OF POP.

It took him a staggering 8-hours but the end result is incredible.

Once completed, the portrait was then donated to CanTeen, so that current members and future generations, can enjoy the magic and influence of one of the greatest artists that ever lived.

MORE ABOUT XSCAPE:

Today, Sony Music in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson have released, XSCAPE, an album of brand new, never before heard music by the internationally beloved music icon and King of Pop. The project features eight new tracks, which the world will be hearing for the very first time on the new album.

XSCAPE is executive produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid, who, after an initial mining of Jackson’s archives by the Estate, was granted unlimited access to the treasures representing four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals.

Reid curated the final list of recordings to deliver to the producers, who retooled the production to add a fresh, contemporary sound that retains Jackson’s essence and integrity. It’s a process Reid calls “contemporising.” The album’s lead producer, Timbaland was one of a handful of producers Reid believed had the gravitas, depth and range to creatively engage with Jackson’s work. Additional producers include global hitmakers Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon and John McClain.

“Modern music and artistry would look and sound completely different if not for the groundbreaking contributions Michael Jackson gifted to the world,” remarked L.A. Reid. “Michael left behind some musical performances that we take great pride in presenting through the vision of music producers that he either worked directly with or expressed strong desire to work with. We are extremely proud and honoured to present this music to the world.”
