Tighter

A lyrical song of contradictions with a musical electronic style to match.  Using a funk beat mixed with live Latin percussion, female vocals float on top with crazy high harmonies, a big pre chorus and hook.  The love story speaks of removing all barriers to find each other in the highest, deepest love. Perfect rhythms for high energy dance floors. Live conga’s give this track a latin dance feel.  The video was shot in Las Vegas with aerial views of the Strip, High Roller and street scenes of the city that never sleeps, playing off the song’s theme “climbing down into you.”

The Triple Talent…. Kenton Hall..

Triple Talented Kenton Hall author, musician and actor~  He was born in Estevan, Saskatchewan – the sunshine capital of his home country – but now lives and works in the United Kingdom where his disposition makes more sense. From 2000 until 2010 he was the lead singer and lyricist for the band ‘ist’ who released three critically acclaimed albums before breaking up due to musical amnesia. in 2015, he wrote and directed the feature film “A Dozen Summers” and in 2018, his first play “The Public Interest”. Bisection is his first full-length prose work. But watch out….  He is threatening a follow-up More music is also on the horizon for Kenton, with his first solo album, “Idiopath” – building on the themes of Bisection – currently being recorded. 

Check out Ist last album https://open.spotify.com/artist/4aYl9tULfjcptNbEjaJPT4

About the book… Bisection: Since childhood, Canadian author Kenton Hall has fought a battle with bipolar disorder. At the moment, they’re calling it a draw, but they’ve both taken the round on more than one occasion. In the interim, he also escaped a cult, became a father to twins – eventually a single father to twins – and pursued a career as a writer, actor and musician.  No one is claiming he makes things easy on himself. 

Bisection is not your average book about mental health. It is the story of one man, two children and bipolar disorder – a funny, heart-breaking, fierce and hopeful book that dares to find humour in the darkest places – and shed enough light to lift their shadows.  Imagine Douglas Adams wrote a book about mental health. Then imagine Douglas Adams was shorter and more regularly moose adjacent. That’s Bisection!    

You can find the book on Amazon and other book selling sites.

Merry Bloody Xmas!

From British purveyor of retro faux horror soundtracks Kish Kollektiv, comes a new Yuletide release…

It’s amazing how many people see Christmas as a nightmare that must be endured, even without supernatural shenanigans, serial killers and marauding gremlins – tense encounters with in-laws, disruption to one’s routine, the stress of coordinating social and family events and sky-high costs have a horror all of their own. 

In the Northern Hemisphere at least, it can be quite an eerie time of year…short days and long nights, frost glistening in cold moonlight, snow covered landscapes…or more typically in the damp and dreary UK, endless periods of gloom, overcast skies, mist and drizzle…

There’s a tradition of festive-themed horror fiction, at least dating back to the Victorian era and Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” but it was perhaps in the last few decades of the 20th century that Christmas-themed tales of terror really came into their own on the big screen. 

It was mainly from the 1980s that I drew my inspiration for “Moonlight Slay Ride”, a time of films like “To All a Goodnight”, “Christmas Evil”, “Silent Night, Deadly night” and its sequels and (perhaps the greatest festive horror movie of the decade) “Gremlins”. It was also a time when low-budget synthesizer scores were the go-to option for independent film makers. 

See this as the main theme of a mid-80s holiday horror film that doesn’t exist in our timeline but perhaps does in the “reality next door”…

The video is available to view on YouTube:

“Moonlight Slay Ride” is available for FREE download via Bandcamp:

Merry bloody Christmas!

Jingle Jangle and Happy Holidays!

Christmas music inspirations come from all different places  for each of these amazing indie artist each story is different, some are inspirational and some are just ting jingle ling there it is~!

For Americana Southern Rock Indie Artist Mandy Rowden it was a Jingle Jangle Experience!

I wrote this in a hotel room in Durango, CO on Christmas Day, 2016. My boyfriend and I went as a last minute respite from the chaos that was going on personally and nationally, and I talked a little bit about our drive through West Texas and New Mexico and how great it was to be there and let go of the tough stuff for a moment and look forward to the ‘clean slate’ feeling of a new year. 

Take a listen to this Holiday Tune  and Watch the Music Video 

For country singer Rob Georg  it was for all those in military service who won’t be home for the holiday

The inspiration and heartfelt holiday message behind it all: ”It was in spring 2019 when Kristin K. Smith and Rob Georg asked themselves the following question: Does the world need another Christmas Song? After weighing up the pros and cons for some days, the answer was a clear yes. But it had to be something different, their plan was to think out of the box when starting this special project.

They came up with the idea to write this song out of a soldier’s perspective, far away from home, on foreign ground, missing his or her loved ones and dreaming of being home for celebrating Christmas together with them.

Writer, producer and vocal coach Kristin K. Smith had an ace up her sleeve. She asked no other than Corey Lee Barker, NACMAI songwriter of the year 2012, to join the project and give his incredibly skillful Christmas Song talent into the song.

The team worked for several weeks and came up with a totally different Christmas Song in the end. A song, that delivers a Christmas feel on one hand, but also includes a “Thanks for your service” vibe on the other, honoring the women and men in uniform, who sacrifice so much, sometimes everything, to protect our freedom.

Though the 3 writers know that their Christmas Wish will not be fulfilled for every soldier, they do hope that as many modern day heroes as possible may have a peaceful Christmas at home with their families and friends. And for all the others, who will not make it home for the holidays, stay safe and have a Merry Christmas, wherever you are. And for those who gave everything, we will never forget!

Maybe you can also invite a veteran to join you and your family for having dinner on Christmas Eve. We owe them a lot, we owe them our freedom, we owe them that we can celebrate in peace, make them part of it, it’s Christmas, it’s the time to show love and to give back. 

Merry Christmas!”

EDM Dance Artist and children’s Book Author Kim Cameron the heartfelt Holiday songs 

The original song, My  Memories of Christmas, Kim says  it was a dedication to my mother who always made Christmas time so special.  It paints a picture of my Christmas’s growing up. The others are remakes of holiday classics…and I did that because I love love love love Christmas!

Super Drag Group A2b 

A2B introduces an original Christmas song  “Together For Christmas“, co-written by Executive Producer Kevin-Lee Junious and Producer Leo Frappier The Christmas set also Includes  covers of 3 favourite Holiday songs personally chosen by Adriana, Amoura and BeBe.

“LAST CHRISTMAS” feat Adriana Roy

“THIS CHRISTMAS” feat Amoura Teese

“CHRISTMAS IN THE CITY” feat. BeBe Sweetbriar

Add these songs to your Holiday Playlist for that Xmas Party or family gathering  or just to get you in that Happy Holidays Spirit~ Jingle All The Way!

If you took Depeche Mode, Yazz, Ministry (post DM sound) with some Nitzer Eb added in you get MEGALMODAS,  the mash up of industrial, Electronica and Goth Rock/Post Wave styles is reminiscent of the late 80’s Early 90’s music. The Music is an  aggressive edged retro vibed instrumental with echoing lyrical additions encompass each track put out by this German based artist. A sound that is a union of KrautRock and Electronic Body Music, something that isn’t the usual lick that is so commonly heard now.

Put best by MEGALMODAS his “inspiration behind the music ” – My first big music love was Depeche Mode and I always wanted to merge “traditionell” hand made music with electronic instruments. Like Ministry, Rammstein and KMFDM are doing. But I’m also more a “softy” and like Pop Music (I’m a child of the 80’s …), so my music usually never gets that hard, even though I venture sometimes into the industrial Metal Realm, it is mostly (Gothic) Rock and Darkwave.

For me this is so liberating, after playing for over 25+ years bass guitar and singing in “traditionell” Punk, Pop, Hard-Rock and Metal Bands, to finally make the music I want to do.

The start of this whole thing was rather sad though. As I could not find any people who wanted to play with me this kind of music, I started all by myself and needed to sit down for a few years to learn how electronic music is made, as I only knew how to play “real” instruments (bass guitar/guitar/drums). This took me a few years, and you can hear in my early releases my struggle with it …

Two years ago I finally found someone, “Bionel” who shares my vision and we started to rehearse together to get the music out of the rehearsal space. Bionel (aka Nele) plays the violin, the synth, the theremin and also sings. She is quite an addition and we had 4 gigs so far this year, even on a small festival  The response has been thus far very positive. After playing for years my music just to myself I really had no idea anymore how people would react …

It is a bit aided by our “Showmanship” as I love the stage and have been in movies, TV Shows and a few music videos. Here are just a few quite different ones, where I play a small role (I’m mostly the villain as I can look quite imposing if I want to …) 

Leo Hook Keeps Giving Love

New music from Leo Hook   La La La La Love….  Something different continues to come from this amazing musician everytime he puts something out . Leo brings the best music out of Eastern Europe that has yet been heard by the West, a distinct and unique from Belarus, a mysterious electronic driven Eurodance!  

Leo says on this one.. Just drums, bass and guitar. Neither lyrics nor good melody, nothing special, I just tried to find something to make it alive. Suddenly I’ve caught a drive when I was playing with some singing and voice pitching in my DAW. Since I am a big lover of all real things and real relationships, I didn’t think long on the lyrics. It came by itself, this song has to be about a situation that happens to every family. In the original language of the song, the chorus line is a little bit different but also has a unique drive.  And my goal was not to just make a happy song but translate my happiness at that moment to the song. IMHO I’ve done it well. 

Not much for too many words,  Leo is right to the point when it comes to his music journey and life. Best put by himself :

1965 -was born, 1971 – enter a music school, fell in love, 1972 enter school, fell in love, 1982 finished school and entered university, fell in love, 1983 – started army, 1985 retired from the army, fell in love, 1990 get marriage, 1991 get my first son, 1993 just fell in love, 1998 I went into Bahrain, 2000 – I met my second and, I hope, the last wife, fell in love, 2003 get my second son, 2007 – stop working in Bahrain, 2010 released my first album, 2012 again went to Bahrain, 2015 left Bahrain, 2019 I started distribution on TuneCore and collaboration with Al Geiner~PR, nowadays – still alive, in love, working, happy!

Seaper Powers, In Search of Bleu Jay’s Treasure .. the first animation film from children’s book author and edm artist Kim Cameron!

Acclaimed childrens book author Kim Cameron has just complted her very first Animation movie for Seaper Powers, whilest geared to younger children its a great series of books that are poignnet for adults as well.  Teaching the importance of sea life, climate change and Ocean health to all who engage in the stories.

From Kim… The book series was inspired by a little girl I met on tour in St. Barths.  During a break in my set..she told she loved octopus. I was intrigued by this…since most little girls have a tendency to love starfish or dolphins.  I ended up writing a song on the beach the next day with my guitar player. He suggested I write a story that incorporates the song. Soon a book was born…then a series, and now a movie.

About the film itself.. Embark on a magical ocean journey in this feature-length animated film for young adventurers and families of all ages. Meet Emma, a little girl on vacation off the island of St. Thomas, who discovers magical sea-grass that gives her the power to talk to sea life. Soon enough, Emma has a new group of sea-critter friends. There’s Oliver, a shy young octopus who’s full of adventure but too timid to explore with his friends; and Steve, an out-of-place starfish who discovers he has powers of his own. Together, the quirky trio set off on a grand adventure to find buried treasure, along the way learning important lessons about friendship, self-confidence, protecting the environment, and the power of imagination.

Check it out on IMDb which includes the official trailer  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9576232/plotsummary?ref_=tt_ov_pl
