Get Directions

San Francisco producer Derrick Boyd aka Dead Seal, now Tone OF Arc a world wide performing duo/band which includes partner/vocalist Zoe Presnick. They both have been making music for most of their lives, two of those special individuals possessed with a wide range of musical expression. Tone Of Arc brings a glimpse of real musicality to the underground tech house, punk house, and indie house scene, something rarely experienced on the dance floor. They also sing, play guitar, bass, and keys (along with a variety of other random instruments that occupy their studio, which now includes a cello!). This sense of bravado and daring blurs the line between traditional live performance and the microprocessor obsessed futurism. Tone Of Arc's powerful stage presense drawn from old school cats like Iggy Pop, The Clash, and Bowie helps to partially define the originality of their music. Boyd himself describes these new directions in sound as discovering the infinite within the mortal remains and posits that this is the dichotomy of existence. Even the alias Dead Seal is part of his philosophy acting as "a symbol of my past, present, and future lives- reminding me that I am more than just a man." Tone Of Arc, in short means the sound of the laws of creation, a name born from the wonder of the sound that holds all things in the universe together.

Tone Of Arc have played at some of the biggest clubs and festivals around the world including Fabric London, Panorama Bar Berlin, BPM Festival Playa Del Carmen, Pacha Buenos Aires, D Edge Brazil. Boyd has created a volume of more than two hundred unreleased songs and tracks which he jokingly refers to as his "Dead Seal Scrolls".They released 3 EP's in 2012/2013 with remixes by Deniz Kurtel, Luca C. and Prinz Thomas leading up to their debut full length album in May of 2013 on the ever expanding house record label No.19 Music, owned by Nitin and Jonny White of Art Department. Tone Of Arc have also been featured in DJ Mag, MixMag and Spin Magazine. So far, it would appear, their accomplishments are on the rise as countless fans catch wind of their fresh, new and exciting take on their ever changing performance and production.

So Why has so little been released as Dead Seal and why the change of name to Tone Of Arc? Boyd responds in his own inimitable style, "There is always room for improvement and I am really hard on myself and demand a lot of myself before I die. I have kept my music a secret for so long that it was too early for me to have any real accomplishments till recently. But I assure everyone that the best has yet to come, I'm just getting warmed up with a name change to match the level of achievement. 'Bout time after 200 hundred songs and twenty six years of hoarding bombs. "Music takes a lifetime, you can never stop once you have chosen to inspire those around you I just never got around to selling myself cause I wanted the music to bring me to the right people. I have always trusted in the light and it's family of open hearted genius to bring me home".
