Something Different …Leo Hook

Leo Hook brings a sound unique from Belarus, a mysterious electronic driven Eurodance experience unlike anything else out there. The song LOVE is about a deep and strong inner conflict between I WANT and I MUST, it’s most Definitely it is a love story. A battlefield, a Stranger, LOVE touches on it all that,  The concept of love in relationships is very often a person projecting what they want onto another person. We are all in love with the idea of love but what we want is not always good for us. We might get obsessed with something very dangerous.

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, 1991get 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!

New Single and Music Video From JunesFlow!

A mashup of EDM and Hip Hop,  this multi talented artist JunesFlow brings something to the  Dance Music. This fresh infusion to the scene will rise to the top of the Dance Charts! “Stop Talking, Just Dance” is the fourth single and music-video from emerging Detroit emcee JunesFlow, off of his acclaimed “Long Live Jit” album. June has tapped into his city’s rich dance culture once again with a consistent flow over the smooth, upbeat track produced by Mark Cooper. As far as the video to “Stop Talking, Just Dance”, June continues to shine light on the unique world of Jit dancing by featuring the breakthrough talent of Gabrielle “Queen Gabby” McLeod.

Coming from the Music City of  Detroit the home of Motown and of the Electronic Music Scene,  June combines elequently the 2 genres that have made the city a music HUB! 

“Stop Talking, Just Dance” was inspired by trying to promote the idea of attempting to get back to actually dancing, celebrating, and having fun rather than anything else….in regards to the dance-floor. It is also, however, able to be a song geared towards providing “hope” in a sense. I’ve been sent videos of random personal trainers teaching their classes to the entire album!

This song, like the album is to shine a huge scope on the great, reemerging city of Detroit and the legendary Jit dance created here in the city.

London Calling… Electronic Singularity 15 Nov!

What would you do for your significant  others big number B`Day?  A gathering of friends? Go out to dinner?  OR something bigger?  Well Jamelle Bejarano has everyone beat.. She decided to put on a concert for her husbands big 5-0!  He is huge fan of electronic music so she decided to gather up his favourites and make a huge event out of it.  Taking Place in the UK  in November this is slated to be one banger of an event

For information and tickets click the link https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/electronic-singularity-tickets-60351737672?aff=AlG

Jamelle describes how this all came about….

My husband, John Bejarano, is turning 50 in November. I asked him what special activity he would like to do for his birthday. After some thought, he said he would love to see his favorite three bands in concert, but as Northern Kind is from Leceister, England, Future Perfect is from Wales, and Johan Baeckström is from Sweden it wasn’t likely that they would play together in November. The three bands have not previously had a group concert.  Also, we are in California. I immediately told him I would make it happen.   I started on the journey of trying to put together a concert of the three bands from different continents in a country an ocean away from our home. John is a large synthpop fan and was already Facebook friends of the three bands. He reached out to them and they all rapidly agreed to be part of the concert. It was a very exciting start to this plan.

We decided to call the concert eLectronic singularity. The name of the concert represents electronic for electronic music, singularity because it is a one time event, and the L in eLectronic is the only letter capitalized and it represents the Roman Numeral for 50.  I reached out to the bands to determine what they need for the concert in equipment and space, and fan size and began my long search for a venue. I was impressed by the newly refurbished Nambucca in London and booked the concert for Nov 15, 2019. Next step was to find a way to sell and distribute tickets. This was a challenge but determined that Eventbrite.UK would be a good fit. The concert is also listed on Evensi.  I am enjoying my challenge and sharp learning curve of putting together an international concert of three fabulous bands. As an Accounts Payable Director, I never expected to become an international concert promoter.

 A little bit on each band  for more info on each please visit the website or Facebook

​​Northern Kind are electronic duo Matt Culpin and Sarah Heeley. Based in Leicester, UK the duo formed in 2006 and have gained a loyal, international fan-base. Their early albums ‘53 Degrees North’ and‘Wired’, topped album and download charts across Europe and won them prestigious live dates
including a UK tour with pop legends Kajagoogoo, Recoil with Alan Wilder (ex-Depeche Mode) and Gary Numan at Postbahnhof, Berlin, and Heaven 17 at the 2013 Silicon Dreams Festival.

In the early 90´s Johan Baeckström formed the swedish electropop duo Daily Planet together with vocalist Jarmo Ollila. The singles "Milky Way" and "Radioactive love" was released in 1995-1996,
followed by the first – and only – album "The Tide". Until 2014, that is – In september 2014 they released their second album, called "Two", on Swedish label Progress Productions. It was followed by a 3rd album, "Play Rewind Repeat" in May 2017. In between those two, Johan released two solo albums, ”Like Before” in June 2015 and ”Utopia” in June 2018, both highly acclaimed by fans and
media.

Gnarly Music From BlondeKing~

t

Totally Gnarly Music! The music of Blondeking is a combination of Alternative/Progressive music inspired from the late 70’s to mid 80’s; taking inspiration from some of the era’s best bands like Joy Division/New Order, Throbbing Gristle, Echo & The Bunnymen, and Nitzer Ebb.  The latest release joins the ranks of music that will stand the test of time! 

With “Intimation” Blondeking once again delves into sounds that drove the 80’s underground. Blondeking’s front-man said, “When thinking about this release and the single “Say it” in particular, I wanted to look back to the era of genre promoting pioneers like WaxTrax records and also to explore how digital sampling was shaping music. Alternative dance and industrial music were taking shape in the early to mid-1980s with bands like Ministry, Nitzer Ebb, Cabaret Voltaire, and Front 242. These bands were pushing the boundaries of what synths could do in a different way than more mainstream synths artists were doing. In the early days of all synth bands, many critics called synth music ‘light’ or ‘cheesy’. These bands proved that synths could be anti-establishment and could have a voice that screamed out just as loud as the Sex Pistols.”

A look into what’s behind the music  

Track 1: Time (Take Me Back)

This song is a totally shameless homage to the 80s. It’s filled with 80s references and an almost sad longing to go back to the era. 

Track 2: The Silent Son

A dark track about just wanting to be left alone in a crazed mind after relationship disintegrates. 

Track 3: Say It

Don’t be afraid of saying what you think. There are always those that try to thwart you. Use real truth. Though the song may seem to be political, it is not.

What’s ON with Melodywhore!

Melodywhore is a darkwave electronic project with post rock and industrial roots who is currently supporting a new EP that just dropped in August. Since then, he has released two remix albums each with two brand new tracks just to add to the madness. 

With influences such as Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, OMD, New Order and Ministry, you may be able to piece together where some of his artistry comes from.  The project started around 2000 and there has been a number of incarnations since.  2017 marked a change with the release of his second full album, Xenophilia, with a big push to promote. From then to now, melodywhore has put himself out there as a major promoter of indie music and has taken on two weekly web broadcast radio shows in support of indie artists.  melodywhore is also a part of Ghostpile Records, a “label” in support of indie artists.  he currently is involved in multiple projects and collabs with other artists in the community and has a number of remixes he is working to completion.

On the inspiration of his music, melodywhore says, “I write a lot about past experiences.  Pain or pleasure in various forms.  There’s a lot of hardship people are going through especially now with government agendas and decisions that are hurting human beings.  We’re all affected by it whether we want to admit it or not. There’s a lot of hurt going on in the world right now and we all need some form of healing, however that might be. So a lot of my inspiration comes from these dark places.  I just let it carry me wherever it will.”

New Single Out From The Impersonators

Rock N Roll is here to stay … with a Alternative Twist! The latest single from Finland based rockers hits the streams, their late 80’s early 90’s Progressive Rock sound distinguishes them from the usual lick you’ll hear on the Top 40 Channels. Take David Bowie, Pet Shop Boys with a dash of Blur and a splash of Blink 182~ then you get The Impersonators.

The initial inspiration for this tune came when I met this guy from Sussex, England. I did not know Sussex isn’t exactly thriving these days and he was dirt poor but blissfully happy and jazzed up about life. Then there was me, blessed with everything and still not being content. I felt slightly embarrassed. As often is the case, a song is inspired by something autobiographical and then once you start working on it, it evolves into a composite of reality and fiction. Unlike the protagonist of the song, the British guy I met was not married nor unemployed. However, the lyrics Antti provided for the verses and the middle-eight, needed the character in the song to be both of those things. I edited the bits we wrote together and painted a picture of a disappointed man, on his last legs, waving goodbye to all the mundane, trivial and hurtful issues of everyday life, saying, “You win. You can be as nasty and indifferent towards me as you want, I won’t fight back from now on but I won’t rent space in my head or heart for you anymore either. The promo shots and the video for the release were shot in a real circus tent. It was a lot of fun doing that. Antti floored everyone with his acting abilities and also, I love the single cover, doctored by Sven Klitsch, with the little circus bits in it.
Excited about how the photo turned out, I showed it to my four-year old son. He looked at it slightly worried and said, “Were you scared of standing so close to the tiger?” – “Not one bit,” I answered.”

Catch the NEW Music Video

Having previously been signed to Sony/BMG with Carmen Gray, one of Finland’s finest rock bands, Tom Tikka has formed The Impersonators, a two-man project born out their ashes designed to cut-out the politics and strife which come from the rock ‘n’ roll carnival of band life. Resolutely studio-based, The Impersonators attempt to channel the bejeweled power-pop of The Go-Betweens and the immediacy/worldliness of early R.E.M. to deliver timeless alt-pop melodies.

Comprising Tom Tikka and lyricist Antti Autio, The Impersonators are just that: a duo which masquerades as a full band and does everything it can to defy convention – whether that being their insistence on avoiding touring or their songs, which home in on the warts-and-all gnarliness of love and real life. In fact, if one were to find a common theme that runs through the group’s entire catal it would probably be how life very seldom resembles or turns out like Disney fantasies. 

Despite their poignant lyrics, The Impersonators are still a joyous and sweet proposition, with their vocal harmonies and chiming chords harking back to such 60s pop majesties as The Beatles, The Byrds and The Beach Boys. Together with their secret weapon, producer Janne Saksa, The Impersonators craft their lyrics and melodies into retro-flavoured “alternative pop/rock”. While adding a modern twist to the final soundscape, their most important goal is to nurture and cultivate the creativity, spirit, and warmth that graced the pop records of yester years.

New Hit Song Rather The Banger From DarRa

PHOTO-2019-07-30-12-50-48 (1)

The New Single Rock Steady is rather a Banger!! It’s The new revolution in rock music AS DarRa Returns with his latest release from the new album…  his infused progressive rock vibe intermingled with classic Brit Rock has that Duran Duran feel to it  Bringing back the New Romantic style in music DARra shows the influences of not only the aforementioned iconic band, but David Bowie and Roxy Music including Soft Cell  with dashes of Steam Punk trends. Dashes of dance rhythm in SynthROCK! A musical amalgamation of 80s rock, art rock, alt rock and Pop Rock from the creative mind of an artist that has changed since his beginnings with EMI years ago. 

From DarRa himself…..”2019 the world has warmed up and is still been run by the Craziest Showmen to ever breath, and music has become wall-paper where everyone with a drum machine and Iphone desperately beg for your 1 second of attention.Its a different world now from the one where people would take the effort to hit the record stores, buy that killer new album, rush home, pour a drink of something or maybe something else, sit back and float downstream for a few hours of sonic drifting.So why on earth would anyone make an Album in 2019, when no one has the time to look up and say hello let alone have an hour to drift away to other places in your headspace.Well out on the Wild frontier on musical innovation their our a few soldiers still holding the forts, waiting for the moment they can return back to the everyday rush with a new sonic masterpiece to restore the faith of the people.Again you ask why would you bother, that question is hard to answer other than the hope that someone might feel the same and want to join the sonic army to change the world for the better.One of those Sonic soldiers is an Irish born artist called Dar.Ra that has returned from the frontier with a new sonic masterpiece called ‘New Kinda Normal’ 10 songs that depict life in the 21st century but allow the mind to drift off and make up your own ideas of how things should be.This album is a labour of love and has taken two years to make with co producer Harvey Summers, moving genres and themes like a tour bus moves from one town to another.Its already had one hit single called ‘Diamonds N The Shadows’ which has been getting great press and support on various platforms, with a video that would make David Lynch smile, if you haven’t heard it, you must of been watching MTV Cribs.‘If you didn’t come to party don’t bother knocking on my door, Prince once said, but were saying if your not into getting woke to new music then jog on.Subject and themes run from Coming Out and being you, War, Being Single, Climate Change in ‘Heavier Than Rock N Roll’ to Suicide in a track dedicated to Robin Williams. Its all there but in a non preachy kinda way.The vibe is one which Dar.Ra calls Rock Step which is a mixture of Rock N Roll and EDM which you can hear on ‘Night Stepper’ another track with a killer Video shot in NYC about a 12th century Knight who wakes up in the 21st C. Another single ‘Phenomenal’ a tribute to single mothers which got heavy radio support in the US and UK with Kerrang Radio calling the vibe Different, and Planet Rock loving it too.There are 10 tracks and three bonus remixes pushing the EMD vibe into touchdown. The Night Stepper remix just oozes late night sex appeal and has also had support from the Club Heads.Its all there if you dare to dream for something different.

DaraRa takes you on real ROCK N ROLL EDM Drive!

The New Song Rock Steady is about a guy who has enough of being told what to do and how to feel by his wife and decides to leave. He believes that he will be Rock Steady with or without her, even though she has tried to gaslight him believing that he will never survive on his own. Everyone should feel Rock Steady on their own, no one should need anyone to make them happy. It’s a bonus when it happens but we all need to be independent in my book. “
