EDM artist Tal releases new EP album ‘Pandora’s Box’

The producer, composer and songwriter of EDM and pop music known as Tal has released the debut album, “Pandora’s Box.” The EP combines the elements of electronic dance music, pop, and dance pop categories. Tal’s “Pandora’s Box” contains six original Tal tracks for an approximate total listening time of 35 minutes. It has been proudly published on the TekOutfit LLC independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Futuristic, eclectic, danceable and full of verve and groove, “Pandora’s Box” is a startling introduction to one of the 21st century’s newest digital music composers.

Tal cites as main artistic influences David Bowie, Yes, Pink Floyd, Deadmaus, and Alon Mor. Many elements of these may be heard in “Pandora’s Box,” weaving, intersecting and blending in and out for a melange of emotional textures which is likely to attract fans of nearly every EDM subgenre.

In addition to the considerable talents of Tal, “Pandora’s Box” also features the skilled lyrics and vocals of Traci Nelson, as well as inspirations from Roxy Saint’s featured lyrics and vocals.

Tal takes time to craft music until it feels complete, with nothing to add or take away, mixed and mastered, and polished to a high shine.

The official TekOutfit website describes Tal as a “new EDM artist who mixes pop, EDM, and movie soundtrack effects to create a unique dance sound.” Fans of David Lynch will note that the closing track of her “Pandora’s Box” debut is an homage to the music of “Dune,” the critically acclaimed original version of which was originally composed by the progressive rock band, Toto.

Pandora’s Box was mixed and engineered by David Henszey (Ice Cube, Cheap Trick, “xXx” the feature film).

“Pandora’s Box” by Tal is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

Rapper Cambiyo releases two new singles ‘Ice Cold’ and ‘Speedin (2 U)’

Hip Hop artist, Cambiyo, has released his latest pair of official singles, “Ice Cold” and “Speedin (2 U).” The tracks have been proudly published on Outré Productions, an independent record label. With sharp contrasts to one another, “Ice Cold” and “Speedin (2 U)” offer immense variety and prove that Cambiyo has the range to be one of the biggest voices from Atlanta for 2018 and beyond.

Cambiyo, a proud “Grady baby,” cites his main artistic influences as Outkast, Michael Jackson, Ja Rule, Lauryn Hill, Biggie, Usher, T.I., and Kanye West. His own sound incorporates many of the attributes of both the pop and hip hop genres to create a sound all of his own.

This is perhaps best exemplified in this release of “Ice Cold,” which can only be described as, “everything you want out of a summer jam: crisp production, an infectious hook, and Instagram caption ready lyrics for your timeline.”

“Speedin (2 U),” however, represents a bit of a departure from Cambiyo’s usual fare. Nevertheless, fans of Cambiyo needn’t fret – while more soulful than “Ice Cold” and much of his previous repertoire, the track remains highly characteristic of the man’s general style and sound.

Cambiyo’s current official bio closes with the following promise:

“With a wide variety of flows, melodies, and subject matter, there is no telling what he will come up with next, but one thing is for certain – he will come correct.”

“Ice Cold” and “Speedin (2 U)” by Cambiyo are available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

Indie musician Bruce Mack releases new album ‘Lo-Fi Exploits of a Misplant on Shaolin’

The writer, producer and performer of eclectic alternative music known as Bruce Mack has released his latest LP album, “Lo-Fi Exploits of a Misplant on Shaolin.” The record contains 11 original tracks for just over half an hour’s worth of listening. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. Blending elements of soul, RnB, and even rock-n-roll, “Lo-Fi Exploits of a Misplant on Shaolin” is a record to put Bruce Mack on the map once and for all.

Bruce Mack cites as main artistic influences a broad sampling of various sounds, including Jon Hendricks, Parliament Funkadelic, Junie Morrison, Joni Mitchell, Sun Ra, Eddie Jefferson, Dexter Wansel, and the BlackByrds. His own sound on “Lo-Fi Exploits of a Misplant on Shaolin” can’t be nailed down to a single pigeonhole, but suffice it to say, if an indie-rock crew were to smash into a jazz studio which then fell downstairs into a funk and soul club, the resulting style might sound something like this latest offering from Bruce Mack.

Bruce Mack (AKA B-Mack or Ultron-B) has always been mixing music around. As co-founder of ’80s/’90s R&B/punk band, PBR Streetgang, B-Mack is a multi-instrumentalist and innovative singer with a broader versatility than that exhibited by many of today’s music artists. His popular 2015 track, “Karma Can Be Long” was featured on “Buddha Bug Records Mixtape Vol.1” on the Buddha Bug label. Mack worked as co-producer on Tricky Dilemma’s “John P. Parker: A View From 9 Dimensions” with DJ Val-Inc and guitarist Marvin Sewell in 2007.

Mack has said of his themes on “Lo-Fi Exploits…,” “Don’t let your mistakes hold you back. Use them to grow and get better at life.”

Bruce Mack is additionally a founding member of Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, bandleader of Melvin Van Peebles wid/Laxative, and the former president of the Black Rock Coalition.

A professional music educator, Mack has also inspired many of today’s youth to pursue careers in entertainment at the John Melsener Elementary School (PS3) in the West Village, where he has taught for nearly two decades. His work is noted in the film documentary, “When Fried Eggs Fly.”

Mack is currently producing an EP to be released later 2018 for the band, Rules of Aquah, in which he is lead composer and front man.

“Lo-Fi Exploits of a Misplant on Shaolin” by Bruce Mack is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, fans of creative music everywhere.

Music artist Polar Echo releases single ‘Chest on Fire’

The musician and composer known as Polar Echo has released his latest official single, “Chest on Fire.” The single has been proudly published on the Timlin Records independent music label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Driving, genuine and passionate, “Chest on Fire” showcases Polar Echo as one of the more intriguing surprises of 2018 so far.

Polar Echo cites as main artistic influences Led Zeppelin, Muse, Genesis, Pink Floyd and, as he puts it himself, “of course the Spin Doctors.”

Polar Echo began as a solo project with a debut record, “One,” at Oregon State University in Corvallis. The project grew into what has been described as a “power trio,” and hosted a charity event they called the “Echo of Ukraine” in February 2015. The success of this event had enough momentum to propel Polar Echo through a kind of Oregon State tour including venues such as the 2015 OSU Dam Jam – Battle of the Bands, the Tour de Franzia, and the White Eagle in Portland. Additionally, Polar Echo has been the house band for a late-night show and made appearances on both KBVR radio and TV stations.

Asked to describe the main artistic message of his “Chest on Fire” single, Polar Echo writes, “This single is long overdue. It was written a while ago. Life gets in the way for all of us, but three years later – here we are! Doing what you love gets more difficult. It’s important. You just have to make it urgent.”

Polar Echo’s start in music began, in his words, “By biting off a piece of a key on a 50-year-old Belarus upright piano at the age of three.”

Since 2016, Polar Echo writes, performs and records music in Seattle, WA. He may be seen at his popular Instagram hashtag #FollowGuitar, in which photos he is pictured at an array of bucolic scenes in the Washington area with a variety of guitars.

Polar Echo may be heard as the resident musician at Al’s Den at the Crystal Hotel in Portland, OR from Aug. 19-25.

“Chest on Fire” by Polar Echo is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music stores now.

David Rosenblad releases second single of new LP series ‘Antique Rose’

The singer-songwriter and composer for film known as David Rosenblad has released his latest single, “Antique Rose.” The piece represents the title track and second single from Rosenblad’s ongoing LP series of releases, “Antique Rose,” which began with his recent popular song, “Awakening Through Serendipity.” Both have been proudly published on his own Thirteenth Moon Studio independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry.

David Rosenblad cites some of his artistic influences as the Beatles, Peter Gabriel, Miles Davis, Coldplay, and John McLaughlin (Mahavishnu Orchestra), as well as composers Erik Satie and Karlheinz Stockhausen. While his own repertoire is too varied across styles and categories for a round summation, it serves to note that Rosenblad is an accomplished songwriter in areas including pop, rock, singer-songwriter music, and background scores for film and screen.

Additionally, music by David Rosenblad tends to share common thematic threads.

“A purpose in all of my music,” Rosenblad writes, “is to raise the vibrations of the listener, connecting them to themselves, so they may realize who they are through all shadow and light.”

Asked to comment on the specific topical inspirations for this latest entry in his ongoing musical series, Rosenblad writes:

Roses, astrological aspects, past lives and more are rolled into this love ballad.

“If I have ever been incapable of expressing my true love for you in ways that make you happy, then I hope this song does. It is every layer of my being peeled away, leaving nothing but that love, the essence of what we are, through every word and note” (1 May 2018). The song is dedicated to Jean van Zyl.

Austin’s David Rosenblad is a music producer, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, sound designer and composer for film and TV, as well as a music (and yoga) teacher. He is the owner and operator of both DRM:Sir Reel Sound and Thirteenth Moon Studio.

Rosenblad has collaborated or worked with such prominent artists as Sara Hickman, Chrysta Bell, David Newman, Dave Stringer, Blue Spirit Wheel, Herbie Mann, Everclear, Cheap Trick, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bad Company, and scores of others.

Besides traditional performances at concerts and parties, David Rosenblad also often performs at Unity churches and spiritual centers, as well as performing electro-acoustic interactive music for yoga and sound healing events. He has been a featured artist at Austin’s International Day of Yoga for several years, and will be playing guitar as part of a massive production of the Bernstein Mass summer 2018 as part of a worldwide celebration of Leonard Bernstein at 100.

The “Antique Rose” single and ongoing series are available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

Singer Precious Divinity releases single ‘Squishy’

The singer and songwriter known as Precious Divinity has released her latest official single, “Squishy.” The track has been proudly published on her own Precious Divinity Music independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. A proud, unabashed pop track sure to attract fans of dance music everywhere, “Squishy” stands to announce the arrival of Precious Divinity to the global stage in the 21st century.

Asked to list some artistic influences, Precious Divinity cites Prince, Hall & Oates, and Al B. Sure! of “I Love It (Papi Aye, Aye, Aye)” fame. Her own sound will appeal to fans of artists such as (but not limited to) P!nk, Beyonce, and Britney Spears.

“Squishy” has been released on the heels of another popular Precious Divinity single, “Let Your Body Groove,” which dropped 14 April. It, also, is available online worldwide.

A veteran of music making, Precious Divinity has been writing original songs since the age of 13.

“I knew I had a talent to write poems as early as kindergarten,” writes Precious Divinity. “I always tried to guess the rhyming words to songs in the car when I was young.”

Divinity goes on to relate that she was originally inspired to switch from writing poems to writing songs after listening to Prince’s first two albums. Later in life, she began to hear actual music, as she puts it, and following many years of study on the piano (including but not limited to Westmoreland Suzuki School of Music) she would go on to produce her own music tracks.

By 18 she had been signed to Nevada Recording Studios, a professional relationship which would not bear fruit. It was the genesis of a long career in recording and performance in studios, onstage, and in front of live cameras which took her from her native Chicago to Los Angeles, to New York City, to Texas, to Pittsburgh … the list of locales goes on and on. Nevertheless, a fair recording contract was never to be signed. Today Precious Divinity releases “Squishy” independent of any corporate entity.

“I’ve had a lot of help from talented music producers in the past,” say Divinity, “but I have written all my own lyrics. Most of the time I hear the melody.”

She’s not letting go of the overall theme of her new song, though. Asked to divulge, she only says, “It’s a secret.

Fans need not worry, however, because music from Precious Divinity is sure to keep coming. After all, she now acts as producer on her own music releases.

“I’ll always write; that’s what I do,” Precious Divinity says. “This gift from God has been as much of a blessing as a curse. To create and not be heard is stifling my soul.”

Musician David London once wrote of Precious Divinity, “If it is part of the plan of the Universal Intelligence that guides us, she will realize her dreams.”

“Squishy” by Precious Divinity is available from over 600 quality music stores online worldwide now.

Rappers SB & B Don release album ‘2 Kings on a Throne’

The writers, performers and producers of hip hop known as SB and B Don have released their debut LP album, “2 Kings on a Throne.” The LP album contains 10 original SB and B Don tracks for an approximate total listening time of 35 minutes. It has been proudly published on the Grand Legacy Music Group independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Aggressive, genuine, and based on old-school elements while bringing something unique into the 21st century, “2 Kings on a Throne” is a rap album likely to put SB and B Don on the mainstream’s radar for fans around the world.

SB and B Don cite as main artistic influences Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, Young Thug, Chief Keef, Juelz Santana, Chris Brown, A$ap Rocky, Drake, and Jay Z. Their own sound puts an emphasis on solid beats and lyric gymnastics, narrating true-to-life stories with a brand of urban poetry that is all their own. While their focus rests on the lines and rhymes, however, the production value of “2 Kings on a Throne” still rates higher than more minimalist records, something SB and B Don insist upon.

“Always have good speakers when you listen to us,” laughs SB.

“2 Kings on a Throne” is by no means the only release from the two artists. Between them, B Don and SB, now known as Ace Aydan, have over 20 published original tracks available online today.

Asked to describe the general themes of “2 Kings on a Throne,” the artists have no problem answering.

SB writes that their new album says, among other things, “Do your own thing, speak things into existence, have fun as much as you possibly can, know yourself, gather yourself with a good team of people, know your past and know what you want. Be yourself.”

B Don sums it up by saying, “Our album shares a positive message and it lets the people know that you can turn your struggles into motivation.”

“2 Kings on a Throne” by SB and B Don is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

Singer-songwriter Paula Punch releases single ‘Departure Lounge’

The singer and songwriter from Australia known internationally as Paula Punch has released her latest official single, “Departure Lounge.” Like the rest of the singer’s repertoire, “Departure Lounge” has been proudly published on the Punch Park independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. An alternative rock song with a devil-may-care attitude and plenty of groove, “Departure Lounge” is the latest reason for fans of singer-songwriter music to get acquainted with Sydney’s Paula Punch.

Paula Punch makes music with genuine heart. Bearing themes of life, love, courage and independence, Paula Punch’s latest material has echoes of the legendary Lilith Fair performers of the late nineties.

Punch, herself, has cited as main artistic influences Ed Kuepper, Joni Mitchell, the Seekers, the Band, Bob Dylan, and LP. Her own sound varies from release to release, but can be likened to Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge and Sarah McLachlan. Her upcoming debut full-length album release is expected to encompass the bulk of her official releases from 2017 onward, a collezione which will anchor her in the Australian indie scene for the forseeable future.

Asked to describe the overall message of her new, “Departure Lounge” single, Paula Punch says, “Living life to the full!”

Paula Punch began her music career in earnest in 2017 and wasted no time in achieving Fifth Place in the ASA Songwriting Competition for her single, “Take Me Back.” Her music is studio produced by Rob Gist (guitarist, Girl Overboard). Her musical creativity spun from her creation of Punch Park, which has been described as “a website dedicated to expressing her creativity through fashion, music and art, and sharing her stories by recording and performing her own songs.”

“This new song is a statement about life,” Punch says with characteristic vivacity. “We are not here for long. We better make sure we make the most of every minute. It’s about being fearless!”

“Departure Lounge” by Paula Punch is available online worldwide from over 600 quality music stores now. Get in early, singer-songwriter fans.

French EDM artist DP releases new album ‘(Psy)Trance Vol.1’

The composer and producer of EDM known as DP has released his latest full-length album, “(Psy)Trance Vol.1.” The LP record contains 13 original DP tracks for an approximate total listening time of over 100 minutes. Like the rest of DP’s ever-growing repertoire, “(Psy)Trance Vol.1” has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Varied, upbeat, high-energy and high-impact, “(Psy)Trance Vol.1” is the latest reason for fans of the EDM sound to experience this unstoppable DJ from France.

DP (formerly known as DJ Pad) has been producing and composing digital music since 2008 at the age of 20. Classically trained in music theory and an accordion virtuoso, DP is renowned as one of the 21st century’s most prolific EDM artists with more than 800 original tracks available for sampling and download today.

DP often cites as main artistic influences Afrojack, Sebastian, Swedish House Mafia, Infected Mushrooms, Psycraft, Hallucinogen, ATB, Cosmic Gate, Atomic Cat, Tiesto, Angerfist, Hanz Zimmer, and Mike Oldfield. His inspirations for “(Psy)Trance Vol.1” are somewhat different, however.

“This album oscillates between old-school trance (the famous Trance 138 of the 2000s) and ultra-modern psytrance (so-called “full on” music)” he explains.

Psytrance has been described as a subgenre of trance music characterized by arrangements of synthetic rhythms and layered melodies created by high-tempo riffs. Psytrance has many subgenres belonging to it, including full on, darkpsy, hi-tech, progressive, suomi, psy-chill, psycore, psybient, and psybreaks. Psytrance is an evolution from goa trance music.

The full-on category DP mentions has been particularly popular in Israel. It is categorized as having melodic, energetic and crisp bass lines with a high bpm in the 140 to 148 range. Full-on has its own varieties, including twilight and night (or dark) full-on, morning full-on, and the forest subcategory.

Preceding “(Psy)Trance Vol.1,” DP’s albums include “Waiting to Be Discovered,” “Dubstep: First Strike,” “Dubstep: Second Strike,” “House Vol. 1,” “A Trip in My House Vols. I and II,” “Y,” “The Hymn of Brotherhood,” “Welcome Aboard,” “Psyko Pad,” and “Let’s Bounce,” though this list will almost certainly be longer at the time of reading.

“(Psy)Trance Vol.1” by DP is available from over 600 quality online music stores worldwide now.

Gangsta rapper Dr. Noxx releases new LP ‘The Public Enemy’

The rapper and producer of gangsta rap known as Dr. Noxx has released his latest LP album, “The Public Enemy.” The gigantic record contains 20 original Dr. Noxx tracks for an approximate total listening time of over an hour. It has been proudly published on the Bloody Corp Inc. independent music label without the support or involvement of the corporate music industry. Based on old-school foundations of hip hop but bringing its own cutting edge of stylistic nuance into the new millennium, “The Public Enemy” by Dr. Noxx is a record fans of the gangsta sound everywhere will want a piece of.

Dr. Noxx cites as main artistic influences several of the titanic legends and masterminds of the genre, including Public Enemy, MC Ren, Ice T, and Boogie Down Productions (which included KRS-One, D-Nice and DJ Scott La Rock among others later). His own sound will almost certainly appeal to fans of the old school, his beats coming largely from the 808s and 909s tradition, and his lines landing mostly on the beats as was standard for more than twenty years.

Additionally, Dr. Noxx’s lyric prowess extends beyond English alone into French, making him one of few artists to publish a full-length rap album for the French language in 2018 so far.

Asked to discuss the overall themes and meanings of his songs on “The Public Enemy,” Dr. Noxx writes, “My album is about all social problems, problems such as drugs, racism, police brutality, crime, sex, religious wars, and much more.”

Dr. Noxx’s sound is intentionally based on the ’80s and early ’90s feel of gangsta rap. His instrumentation is taken from analog as much as possible, and the result is an album which will appeal to a broad variety of hip hop’s fans.

A veteran of the sound, Dr. Noxx says, “Since 1998, I worked as a producer. I started with music as was done in the 1980s with samplers and a rhythm box, and I played keyboards.”

Naturally, the music comes out with that original groove because Noxx has made it this way out of love for the original hip hop quality which spawned a movement forty years ago.

“I think the old school should come back and replace the mainstream,” he says.

“The Public Enemy” by Dr. Noxx is available from over 600 digital music stores online worldwide now.
