Joseph Paul Freije releases second summer album ‘Electric Phlower’

Composer and visionary Joseph Paul Freije has released his second album of the 2016 summer, “Electric Phlower.” The album contains 14 original Freije tracks for an approximate total listening time of 50 minutes. Like his other records, “Electric Phlower” has been proudly published on the Phrygian Music independent record label without the direction or support of the corporate music industry. Upbeat, energizing, and entirely fun, “Electric Phlower” is electronic dance music for the youthfulness in all of us.

Phrygian Music’s Joseph P. Freije is an eclectic experimental composer with a wider variety of original music in his repertoire than most highly creative musicians working today. He has composed music in categories as disparate as jazz, electronica, pop, adult contemporary, EDM, experimental, rock, and yet more. He is also one of today’s most prolific independent musicians. “Electric Phlower” represents the second of six full-length records from Freije which will be made available in 2016 (four this summer alone).

“Music is the highest form of spiritual communication that exists,” Freije said last May in an interview for his “Elements of Evidence” LP. “The world uses music for purposes that cloud the reality of what music really is: medicine and a reason for living.”

This sonic medicine and raison d’être is especially invigorating in “Electric Phlower,” as it is 100% undiluted dance music, the most danceable record to come from Freije yet. While the sound of it may surprise some of his most loyal fans, Freije’s personality still shines throughout, elucidating yet another facet of his ever-unfolding character.

“I like having fun,” writes the artist. “Dancing is fun, so I play dance music as well as the other genres.”

It may be hard to imagine the avant-garde composer of jazz and experimental piano himself on the dancefloor, but the truth is it’s close to his heart.

“I used to love to roller skate to this kind of music, was a real wild man on skates.”

Constantly haunting the rink, fellow roller addicts had a name for him: “Superman.”

It’s a feeling “Electric Phlower” communicates directly. The album doesn’t just give the listener a reason to move, to groove, to shuck and jive – it empowers the dancer to make an instrument of the body and join the orchestra in a celebration of being alive.

“Electric Phlower” by Joseph Paul Freije is available online worldwide at over 700 online music stores now. Be sure also to hear “Elements of Evidence,” also available for listening and download now.

DJ Pad releases new LP ‘Welcome Aboard’

The French DJ known around the world as DJ Pad has published his new full-length album, “Welcome Aboard.” Like Pad’s previous releases, “Welcome Aboard” has been published independently on the 4000 Records label without the support of the corporate music industry. Also like earlier records from DJ Pad, “Welcome Aboard” boasts no fewer than 20 original titles for a grand total of over 100 minutes’ worth of digital music, nearly three times the amount which denotes a full-length LP album.

A spectacularly creative EDM record with elements of house, deep house, post-trance, jungle, gabber, old-school techno and even a dash of rock ‘n’ roll, “Welcome Aboard” is perhaps the most inclusive and impressive album from Pad yet.

Since his first appearance on the global digital music stage in spring of 2014, DJ Pad has gained a reputation for being the most prolific composer of EDM currently producing music in France (perhaps in Europe overall and conceivably even across the entire world). With a rapidly growing repertoire that will almost certainly consist of more than 700 original songs by summer of 2016, “Welcome Aboard” is another milestone which proves that DJ Pad can create high-quality music at a rate far surpassing that of any other internationally known digital musician.

DJ Pad’s albums change radically from one to the next, each having its own character and intended subgenre of electronic music. Pad has at one time or another cited as main musical inspirations such artists as ATB, Tiesto, Armin van Buren, Afrojack, Sebastian, Swedish House Mafia, Infected Mushrooms, Psycraft, Hallucinogen, Cosmic Gate, Atomic Cat, Angerfist, Hanz Zimmer, Mike Oldfield, and a great many more. He has been crafting his iconic brand of EDM since 2008 and shows no sign of slowing his remarkable creative pace.

The ability to write music across many categories is a rare talent. For DJ Pad, his musical skill extends even beyond digital music altogether, and in fact his creative roots are in traditional playing. He is an accomplished accordionist with nearly 20 years’ experience.

A man of few words, DJ Pad has been quoted as saying he makes music 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.”

With more than 50 hours of music by DJ Pad since he began making digital music, the sonic world wouldn’t be the same without him.

“Welcome Aboard” by DJ Pad is available online worldwide from 4000 Records. Go get a taste.
