Throwback:Thomas Dolby/Dolby’s Cube-Get Out Of My Mix
Dolby’s Cube was one of Thomas Dolby’s studio projects that counted George Clinton, Francois Kevorkian, Lea Thompson and Lene Lovich among its collaborators at different times. “Get Out Of My Mix” was the first single released under the Dolby’s Cube name and it had more dance sensibilities than his solo hit, “She Blinded Me With Science.” Two years later in 1985, George Clinton recorded “May The Cube Be With You” with Dolby, The Brecker Brothers, Lene Lovich and members of Earth, Wind & Fire and Funkadelic for Dolby’s Cube. The theme song from the movie Howard The Duck was another Dolby’s Cube recording and it featured the flick’s fictional Cherry Bomb band. Thomas Dolby’s interest in various styles of music has put him in a position to produce “Magic’s Wand” for rap group Whodini to co-producing Joni Mitchell’s Dog Eat Dog album. His most recent solo project is 2011’s A Map Of The Floating City. In 2014, he became the Homewood Professor Of The Arts at John Hopkins University.
