"DAAP Slap'd" is a single by the combo of Amanda Appiarius and Maria Fox, two students at the school of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning at the University of Cincinnati. All too familiar with being DAAP Slap'd, they vented their frustration into this fun single produced by Josh Whelchel (Poolside).


Drill design into your soul
“24/7” we never leave this place.
Cept divine intervention!
We runnin floor 6 with our prismas and knives
Makin’ awesome shit and givin’ high fives.

Lookin’ so fierce with my needles so hot.
Our fabrics on the runway, baby like it or not.
My bubblicious barbie dress makes no sense to you,
So let me work my threads into your fake denim blue.

I’m up till 5am with a crit in the morning
With drool drippin’ down my lips
Cause baby I’m DAAP slapped
I’m so caught up in these iterations
So turn my cheek
Cause baby I’m DAAP slapped.

Helvetica brings rad kerning to the page,
Holla to the font! Break it out of the cage
E’erybody think we just makin’ posters
But y’all use comic sans like a bunch a posers.

I’m Adobe like a pro! All those other kids flockin’
What’s H264? Come get a piece of our knowledge.
We wear headphones as we please and
bounce balls up and down the screen
Object dot gotoandPlay().
Write that code. Real clean.

Vaulted arches, drafting pen
Yea, we’ve got that Eisenmann.
Carpet seam, color scheme
Give this room a brand new sheen.
Sculptin’ heads and sketchin’ nudes
SNAP, flash, zoom, exposing hues.
City grids and subdivisions
Map those streets with true precision.

Wake up now you think you got what it takes
It’s D-A-A-P its design at high stakes
If you wanna reach the top
You gotta step inside to D-A-A-P
Break design open wide!

It’s time to loose the backpack and suit up
From Tokyo to NYC!!!!
Cause we’re livin’ the dream,
the real world fantasy.
And then it’s 10 weeks on and 10 weeks off
These studio bonds will never be broken,
And the world of design will never be the same.
