AkasaAkasa is a  singer,  songwriter, performance artist and conceptualist of positive-message music videos. Her cross genre music contains the fusion of Rock, Pop, World, New Age, Jazz and Classical music. She brings many of these talents together on her latest recording, Portal. “My sonic vision is to serve as a bridge between all of the world’s cultures, to show the beauty of our diversity, and to help promote a greater awareness of our similarities,” says Akasa. “I want to do what I can to help the world heal and inspire our society of human-beings in reaching its full creative potential.” Akasa works toward these heroic goals in subtle ways using gentle music,visually-interesting story-line videos, and lyrics sung in a variety of languages (including Latin, Native American, English and her own original Akashic language). Akasa’s vocalizations are ethereal, mystical and enchanting.  Her music was inspired by her life experiences in exploring the depth of the individual psyche and finding the meaning and possibility in human experiences. In some of her songs, she used her imagination to paint a sonic journey into the cosmos and the unknown realm.

Akasa’s music contains authentic emotional expressions and multicultural elements. There are sounds for healing, expanded consciousness and transformation. “The main message in my music,” Akasa explains, “is encouraging everyone to set their inner spirit free, discover their own unique gifts, and become a creative force making a better world. I also believe in using love and compassion as the means for helping people understand their past, , heal their psychic wounds and begin recognizing and transforming any negative emotional patterns.”

Akasa writes the lyrics and vocalizations as well as much of the music. She is assisted in composing and creating the music by keyboardists and co-producers Morris Hayes (Prince, Chaka Kahn, Martika, George Clinton), Nick Michaels (Pete Townsend, Robert Calvert of Hawkwind, Tara London), Aaron Michael Stern (Jon Anderson of Yes, Tin Soldier, Charles Castronovo) and Andre Mieus (Steven Lee, and a CD titled The Tempered Klavier). Special guests Bill Scott plays guitar on “Let Us Be” and Shenkar (Shakti, Frank Zappa, Sting, Yoko Ono) bows viola and sings backing vocals on “Sky Children.”

Emma Cairo Passionate Country Rock Singer

April 18, 2014 in News by Indie Artist Radio

Emma CairoEmma Cairo Release
“Southern Songs from the North”
I am a passionate country rock singer, residing in Los Angeles, yet I am originally from Denmark, Scandinavia,
The tranquil darkness and melancholy of the North is the backdrop of my music. I mix it with the emotional and feisty temper of the South. Along with a profound love for the US, this creates my soundscape. And, now, the time has come to share it with the world! I have just released my EP, Southern Songs from the North.

 

After having toured in Asia and the Middle East, I realized that we are all flakes of dust in an infinite universe. This realization filled me with inspiration and love for the universe and for music – the magical vibrations of the cosmos. The art of controlling these vibrations is my calling.
I am often referred to as “The Uncrowned Viking Princess of Country Music.” However, I plead for your help in retrieving my actual crown! Even princesses need exposure.
Your services to the crown will not go unnoticed!
Sincerely,
Emma Cairo

 

STARTR3K JONES to Release His First Single, ALIEN

February 25, 2014 in News by Indie Artist Radio

| Website | Facebook | Twitter |

STARTR3KJON3SDC’s premier rock/alternative pop/hip-hop recording artist & songwriter STARTR3K JONES will release his first single, ALIEN, from his highly anticipated debut album BEYOND, which is expected to be released in mid spring 2014. ALIEN, which will be released everywhere music is sold worldwide under independent DC-based record label Itrinity(e) Music Group, falls more on Startr3k’s hip hop spectrum and will have its listeners dancing in the club.
When asked about his inspiration behind ALIEN, Startr3k had this to say “The inspiration behind Alien came from people’s misperception of me. So many people assumed that I wouldn’t be able to produce a song like Alien, let alone execute it then keep rolling with the punches. I made Alien for all the people that underestimated me. I also gathered inspiration from people who told me to be the best at whatever I do and by being different my music harder to replicate.
A lot of artists just stick to one sound and stay in that same box.  I’m an artist; I create best with no limits and no boundaries.I want and need I have a tenacity to be different. I need my music to be a platform for real talent. I’m here to set the bar HIGHER. This is no longer an earthly issue; this has become a war in the cosmos. Dare to be different.  I did….”
”I’m taking particularly sensitive care with this project and artist Startr3k Jones.. “ says Itrinity(e)’s CEO, Dwight “Turbo” Dillard “so much so that I’m hand picking specific collaborative artists for Startr3k Jones’ new album ‘Beyond’, which is slated for release in early spring 2014 and features Fat Trel, David Correy and many more well known artists”.

Thailand/Australia electronica act Wasabi Bytes has controversial video

WASABI BYTESWasabi Bytes’ controversial new video pulled by YouTube, collaboration with Afrika Islam  released

Thailand/Australia electronica act Wasabi Bytes is currently making waves with a controversial viral video hit pulled from Youtube and a new collaboration with hip-hop legend Afrika Islam set for release in days.
The act’s video for new single “Deep Inside” features a controversial turn by Thai-English actor Chris Wegoda, best known recently for playing Dr Frank’n’Furter in the first Bangkok stage production of Rocky Horror Picture Show. Wegoda plays a cross-dressing romantic who likes nothing more than to dress up in suspenders and go out on dates with his tomboy lover.
The video quickly went viral attracting tens of thousands of views but not all viewers were fans, with Youtube pulling the video on the basis that enough users had complained it violated its community guidelines focused on lewd or offensive content. As Wasabi Bytes’ auteur Grahame Wasabi notes “although the takedown was ludicrous in our opinion, we did note with some glee that the ban fell exactly thirty years to the day when the BBC banned Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood.” (January 14)
AFRIKA ISLAM ON TITLE TRACK: The single heralds a new album from Wasabi Bytes featuring hip-hop legend Afrika Islam rapping on the title track “Rage Of The Machine”. Afrika is best remembered as the producer of Ice-T’s seminal tracks including Colors and the first DJ to host a hip-hop show on radio, New York’s WHBI in 1981.
Grahame Wasabi says that Afrika became a fan of Wasabi Bytes when on vacation in Thailand in 2012 and has advised the group through the recording stages of its new album. According to Wasabi the album is loosely constructed around the concept of “what happens if the instruments we use such as synths and drum machines become sentient and make their own music when humans aren’t around.” The album seeks to capture the retro-futurist vibe that informs the act’s influences dating back to Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.
The album “Rage of the Machine” features 12 tracks: Spider, Creamy, Deep Inside, PushIt (Exorcism), Florid, Rage of The Machine (featuring Afrika Islam), What?, I Am The Beat, Beautiful, Indonesia Sparkle, Singularity. BONUS TRACK: Deep Dance (the extended mix of Deep Inside) It is released January 27 at all major worldwide music stores including Amazon and iTunes.
WASABI BYTES are Grahame Lynch (Loops, samples, keyboards, vox) and Ratchsak “Kob” Rueangchai (Percussion). Vocals on Rage of the Machine by Afrika Islam. Produced by Grahame Lynch. All tracks mixed by Grahame Lynch and mastered by Andy Miles except PushIt mastered by Simon Heyworth. Heyworth is best remembered as the producer of Mike Oldfield’s Tublular Bells.
