(DALLAS, TEXAS – ; source: Dezi 5 Entertainment) – Dallas based glam pop powerhouse Dezi 5 released his highly anticipated debut EP on Friday October 30, 2015 ‘Crucifixion on the Dance Floor,’ Dezi 5 brilliantly re-invents dance music for our time. A stunning creative leap into dimensions of ‘EDM, Trap, future disco, and 90s dance music,’. Through a period of self-exploration and creative liberation, the artist realized his love for dance music and began experimenting with electronic beats and avant-garde fashion.
‘Crucifixion on the Dance Floor’ features the debut single, ‘LOSE CONTROL,’ an unapologetic club joint Dezi released last fall. The EP also features Dezi 5’s smash hit ‘Dallas, Bitch!’ a city anthem where he proclaims his love for Dallas. ‘Crucifixion on the Dance Floor,’ establishes Dezi’s place in the Dallas dance club scene. It’s a mesmerizing sound that evokes embellishments and excitement, energy and innovation that sets him apart as a dance artist. “I approached this EP with a ‘not too serious’ attitude,” said Dezi 5 of the recording process. “Recording these tracks was a blast, it’s a dance story of my life. The lyrical themes revolve around my personal experiences as a human being, overcoming my fear of releasing dance music and my own self-empowerment. The result was fun music guaranteed to make everyone smile and let it all go.”
Dezi 5 has been playing with members of Friday’s Foolery for about a year. These guys are professionals and it’s amazing to see them flourish and get the recognition they deserve. I call them “The Foolery” because their lead singer JaQuay Morgan and their lead Guitarist Felix Tellez make the actual “Friday’s Foolery.” However, we are grateful to have these guys as musicians and partners of Dezi 5.
This year they have been nominated for “Best Funk/R&B Act” by the Dallas Observer along with Dezi 5, Leon Bridges. We’ll see how that goes…… but I’m honored to be in the same category of my Band members. It shows how hard we all have been working.
Herrick & Hooley will be venturing to New York City this Fall and Dezi 5 will be there shortly after. Tonight they make music while planning future shows and life in the BIG APPLE.
As you know I am currently working on my 1st studio LP “Expose You” and in the mean time I would like to share with you this amazing feel good song. I am a huge fan of Deep House Music you will definitely here elements in “Expose You.”

Forest Brooks sent this track to me and he repeated 3:00am and I took the song and got with JT from Cure for Paranoia to interpret my feelings at 3:00am after a night of dancing at It’ll Do Club Dallas, Enjoy and share.
I am Vice Palace and I appreciate the love……… being a performer you must take risk and break barriers……..
“We had a long conversation about the possible backlash he may face from that,” says Arthur Peña, the founder of Vice Palace and its Vice Palace Tapes cassette label. “I said, ‘Look we can’t have this show in a warehouse, we need the gallery to frame it,’” he says. “This performance was a vessel for conversation to happen. When Dezi gets up there and crucifies himself, the conversation that surrounds that is way bigger than Vice Palace.” – Arthur Peña
