DJ Pad releases new single ‘4000’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The French composer of digital music known as DJ Pad has released his most recent single track, titled, “4000.” The track has been independently released of support from major corporate music companies on the 4000 Records music label. Not literally a single release but rather only a single in the categorical sense, DJ Pad’s “4000” has been published with two other digital music tracks alongside, “Pride” and “Prism (Reloaded).” The trio of songs have a combined approximate total listening time of 15 minutes, longer than some EP album releases.

 

DJ Pad cites such artists as Hallucinogen, ATB, Cosmic Gate, Angerfist, Afrojack, Sebastian, Hanz Zimmer, and Mike Oldfield as main artistic influences. He describes himself in one online bio in the following few words: “I’m a french producer who makes trance, house, hardcore/gabber and some other styles of music like psytrance/ambient/dubstep.”

 

“4000” is DJ Pad’s most significant official release since his late 2012 double LP record, “Waiting to be Discovered,” a gigantic and remarkable record which included two hours of music. It was this record which broke DJ Pad to the music listening world, and one which permanently lifted him to the status of one of France’s most imminent and creative EDM artists in recent years.

 

To date, DJ Pad has composed a great many hours of music – 35 at last public count – and has made five albums available to the public. He has said that his goal in making music is to inspire good feelings in the hearts of his fans, and to “share the craziness and the happiness of the songs’ beats, making listeners have a sudden urge to move their feet and forget all the worries of life.”

 

“4000” by DJ Pad, as well as his past LP records, are available online worldwide.

The hardcore band known as Grace.Will.Fall have released their latest LP record ‘No Rush’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The hardcore band from Sweden known as Grace.Will.Fall have released their latest LP record, “No Rush.” The record is comprised of 11 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 35 minutes. It has been proudly published independent of support from major record companies on the HoboRec music label. A triumphant return to the post-hardcore sound of the new millennium, “No Rush” stands as proof that the hardcore spirit hasn’t merely survived the most recent onslaught of big-money marketing and pop-music agendas, it still blasts strong enough to strip the paint right off your car.

 

Fans of the hardcore scene will be enthused to know they finally have some fresh meat to sink their teeth into with “No Rush.” Grace.Will.Fall cite as main artistic influences such hardcore heroes as Converge, the Bronx, the Dillinger Escape Plan, and Every Time I Die. Maintaining the high-octane aggression of these, while also recalling the chunkier, harsher sound of the hardcore sounds that came before them, Grace.Will.Fall will appeal also to listeners of bands such as Madball, Born Against, and Youth of Today.

 

At least as important as the titanic, raging overtones of Grace.Will.Fall’s “No Rush” are the themes underlying its gargantuan sound.

 

“The basic message of Grace.Will.Fall,” the band writes candidly, “is about the great DIY music movement. All is about the passion for music. Producing and releasing is something that we do on our own together with friends. No big sponsors or commercial interests.”

 

This core principle of making music from the ground up and releasing it personally is one many modern bands have engendered, but one which no band has espoused as heartily and vocally as Grace.Will.Fall. GWF have gone so far as to have a track dedicated to the idea located right at the heart of the album, track 5, “DIY.”

 

“No Rush” by Grace.Will.Fall is available online worldwide.

GrooveShine releases debut self-titled album

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The funk-flavored reggae band from California known as GrooveShine have released their debut self-titled LP record, “GrooveShine.” The album is comprised of 15 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. The crew have proudly published the record independent of support from major music labels. An upbeat, celebratory feel-good album with hooks galore and rhythm to spare, “GrooveShine” is perfectly named and a sonic delight from start to finish.

 

GrooveShine cite as main artistic influences Jimmy Page, Dr. Dre, J Dilla, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, A Tribe Called Quest, James Brown, and Ernest Ranglin. The list reads like a recipe for their sound, which is rich in roots reggae with a healthy portion of funk and a dash of hip hop. An acoustic singer-songwriter’s sound is overlain throughout, with the result that “GrooveShine” works equally well as background music, singalong music, or as a subject for attentive listening by the true audiophile.

 

In addition to the (rather large) band’s regular and numerous talents, the “GrooveShine” LP also features the skills of Michelle Williams, who sings on four of the album’s songs. It also features a cameo appearance by Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, the Wallflowers) playing keyboard on the record’s closing track, “All the Ways of Love.”

 

“The song is different from the rest of the album, as it is not beat-based,” writes GrooveShine of Jaffee’s performance. “However, Jaffee’s melodic keyboards and synth strings move the message of the song beautifully.”

 

GrooveShine hails from the sunny seaside town of Santa Barbara. It was assembled by producer and songwriter, Mike Mchugh (not to be confused with Mike McHugh of the Distillery music studio in Costa Mesa). Lyrical themes on “GrooveShine” are sometimes introspective, often humorous, and occasionally socially conscientious. GrooveShine also stands out for being one of the remarkably few music groups to sport their own software application, the GrooveShine App, available free from Apple and Google Play stores. The GrooveShine App provides fans with music, videos, and an updated show schedule.

 

“GrooveShine” by GrooveShine is available online worldwide.

Emaculent releases new LP ’15 Minutes to E’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The writer and performer of hip hop known as Emaculent has released his latest LP record album, “15 Minutes to E.” The record is comprised of 14 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of a full hour. It has been released on the Brightlife Music record label. Busting at its seams with heavy back beats, witty rhymes and imaginative, catchy melody lines, “15 Minutes to E” is easily one of the most remarkable hip-hop albums of 2014 to date.

 

A gigantic and hugely entertaining rap record from one of the underground’s most imaginative urban poets, “15 Minutes to E” is already turning heads from coast to coast in the United States as well as worldwide. In addition to the considerable talents of Emaculent, himself, “15 Minutes to E” also features the skills of such artists as R ‘n’ B’s Ray J, Anthony Gates, Gee Kass, and Layzie Bone of Bone Thugs ‘n’ Harmony.

 

Having been born and bred in the American Motor City of Detroit, Emaculent now hails from Los Angeles, CA. Having been asked to describe his start in music, he gives a straight, direct and appropriately proud answer.

 

“I entered a freestyle battle at the age of 13, and won.”

 

Emaculent’s official bio includes the following description of his highly charismatic style of rap music:

 

“Emaculent (AKA Emac) delivers the true representation of the art, grit and skills of a seasoned MC. He possesses a self-assured swagger. His words bob and weave throughout each track like a professional verbal athlete. Filled with linguistic portraits of his early years and nail-biting imagery, Emaculent’s music delivers punch after punch of power and personality. Whether you’re a snap back and tattoos kind of guy, a rhythmic beat boxer, backpack rapper or old-school DJ, one thing is certain throughout – Emac’s delivery, rhythmic melodies, and detailed lyric visuals will have you vibing and bobbing along with every beat and flow. Enjoy it!”

 

“15 Minutes to E” by Emaculent is available online worldwide. Get in early.

Cali Conscious releases debut LP ‘High Times’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The roots reggae band known as Cali Conscious has released their debut LP record, “High Times.” The album is comprised of 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It has been proudly and independently published on the Organic Roots Records music label. A warm, friendly, groovy and consistently uplifting collection of songs, “High Times” is both aptly named and one of 2014’s most pleasantly fun records so far.

 

Cali Conscious’ official bio describes them as a blend of roots reggae, folk rock, jazz, rhythm ‘n’ blues and alternative music. Their songs are populated with melodic choruses and three-part harmonies, upbeat rhythms and socially and environmentally conscientious lyrics. They cite as main artistic influences Bob Marley, Steel Pulse, Jack Johnson, James Taylor, Rebelution, Coldplay, Death Cab for Cutie, Sublime, Donovan Frankenreiter, Mishka, and Saritah.

 

While elements of each of these can be easily picked out in various songs on “High Times,” Jack Johnson and Bob Marley are perhaps most closely related in terms of tone and feel. Music by Cali Conscious is summery and bright without a tinge of saccharine. Their instrumentation alone communicates genuinely good vibrations, while their carefully penned lyrics espouse humanist and naturalist ideals.

 

Asked to comment on the themes of their music, Cali Conscious mentions four topics in capital letters: “Positivity, One Love, Peace, Environmental Stewardship. The industry is so saturated with negative messages and electronic music,” they write. “We want to bring back musicianship, a great live performance, and a message of peace, love, and unity.”

 

Cali Conscious are more than members of a band, though. They’re also active members of the global community. In 2013, they ran a beach clean up every third Saturday of the month in their home base of Huntington Beach. They raised $5000 from tips earned at live performances and donated the funds to build a water well in Ethiopia through the non-profit organization, charity:water. They even released their debut LP, “High Times,” as a digital download card embedded with carrot, lettuce, and tomato seeds on their own label, Organic Roots Records.

 

That Cali Conscious are guided by lofty and admirable principles seems clear. That their music sounds even better than their philosophies makes “High Times” a record not to be missed, as spring hits its stride and the beach-party boombox aches for new material.

 

“High Times” by Cali Conscious is available online worldwide. Get in early.

Kontradikshn releases new EP ‘Anatomy’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The eclectic hard rock crew known as Kontradikshn has released their debut EP record, “Anatomy.” The album is comprised of six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour, making for a comprehensive introduction to this heavy-hitting group from Slovenia. The album has been released on the Implicit Division Production music label. A striking, aggressive record with elements of electronica, drum ‘n’ bass and industrial music, “Anatomy” is sure to prove that Kontradikshn isn’t your kid brother’s EDM band – they’re here to bring sonic violence and a healthy dose of philosophy.

 

Kontradikshn cite as main artistic influences such artists as Laibach, the Prodigy, Borghesia, Demolition Group, and the Units. Their unique sound is in some ways most comparable to the Prodigy, though their tones are decidedly more contemporary, their digital music component much more drum ‘n’ bass than Prodigy’s 1990’s techno-style underpinnings. Kontradikshn are more than just the power of their sound, however. Kontradikshn’s lyrics form one of their most impressive characteristics.

 

Upon being asked, “How did you start getting involved in music?” Kontradikshn reply directly, “We felt an urge to express ourselves and to save the world from apocalypse.”

 

Speaking of the theme of “Anatomy,” Kontradikshn write:

 

“The world is just the anatomy. On Anatomy EP, rushing synths collide in an apocalyptic guitar wall, and in the resulting emptiness, the cognition of absurd man’s struggle with his animal mind becomes a reality.”

 

Kontradikshn were awarded second place at the popular Bosnian music festival, Jelen Demofest, held annually in Banja Luka. They also notably appeared at Festival Lent in Maribor, Slovenia, and have been touring the nations of former Yugoslavia since March of this year. Their breakout EP record, “Anatomy” herald’s the coming of their debut full-length release, due in the fourth quarter of 2014.

 

“Anatomy” by Kontradikshn is available online worldwide. Get in early – very early.

Wiltay releases new single and video ‘Less Is More’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The singer, songwriter and performer known as Wiltay has released his latest single and official music video, “Less Is More.” The track is the most significant release from Wiltay since the success of his popular single and video, “Hola.” “Less Is More” has been independently released on the Hola Records music label. An upbeat, optimistic song about empowerment and love for one’s self, “Less Is more” is a song from the new generation for the world at large.

 

Wiltay cites as main artistic inspirations such legends as Coldplay, the Pet Shop Boys, OneRepublic, Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Madonna, Robbie Williams, Take That, Ricky Martin, and Damien Rice. Of these, Coldplay and Robbie Williams stand out as having the most in common with Wiltay’s style and sound, though his positive attitude and energetic charisma give his music a panache that is all his own.

 

Asked to describe the themes of his new video, Wiltay writes, “Nothing can stop us! Keep running, we’ll reach our destination. Be bold, be strong, be brave and dare to be different. Be you! Love yourself. Have gratitude. Life is so short – you better live it fully. Game on. Face the challenges that fall on us and we will win the battle.”

 

Born originally in Singapore, Wiltay was discovered performing pop music in Madrid, Spain on holiday. His wildly popular single, “Hola” was the first music video shot and released by an Asian performer in Spain. “Hola” was viewed more than two million times in less than two weeks (and counting).

 

The youth of China, Taiwan and the Philippines quickly caught on, and Wiltay was catapulted to stardom around the world. His “Hola” video supported the “It Gets Better” project, which supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth around the world, encouraging them to courageously make the changes needed to make life better for them.

 

Wiltay has performed for audiences of larger than a million and his fan base continues to grow exponentially.

 

“Less Is More” is available online worldwide.
