Jim Smith—aka Teeel—is this month’s Guest Conqueror! The 80s-loving electronic music producer/songwriter from New Jersey collaborated with Design + Conquer on our Electro collection Teaser video [see video above], and inspired our Marx earring design. A self-proclaimed marathon movie watcher and gear head, Jim creates music that ranges from hypnotic vocal synthpop to dreamwave and dark electronic rock. He is often inspired by the 1980s new wave movement.
In celebration of Jim’s electro-tastic [yes, we've created a new word for the occasion] we’re giving away a pair of DC Marx earrings. Share this blog post via Facebook or Twitter, and you’re entered. The winner will chosen at random, and will be announced October 1, 2012, on Design + Conquer’s Twitter and Facebook pages. Entries can be from anywhere in the world.

“The home studio born product of classic horror film worship, italo inspiration, electro love – and let’s face it, a brilliant sense of musical depth and texture – 2011’s synthified mini masterpiece, Amulet garnered the attention of electronic music fans everywhere, influential radio stations (KEXP Song of The Day), countless blogs and zines (ahem) and anyone who heard good things when they first listened to Teeel.” Discosalt Magazine
