Psychedelic music producer Joey Arkane keeps his hands on the mixing board while stepping into the vocal booth to deliver his "Celestial Junkie" EP. Debuting his vocals and writing, Arkane handled the entire production and sound engineering duties for the project. The listener can expect to hear a hybrid of several musical sounds like Psychedelic Pop, Funk, and R&B intertwined with new age Electro music with a neo psychedelia vibe, while incorporating the retro and vintage styling's of 1970's /1980's.
"Nobody But You", the first single from this EP, was inspired by a time where Joey looked around his life and realized all he had was her. The song came to him at a very quiet moment in his apartment. She sat there quietly doing homework while Joey took time to admire her. The song immediately formulated and the record was composed, arranged, and recorded within 30 minutes. Wanting to capture raw and authentic emotions, Joey convinced her to record the vocals for the record. His Celestial Junkie EP is scheduled for release February 10th, 2016.
Signed to his label, Hit Academy Music (H.A. Music, LLC), Joey's sound falls under the indie/psychedelic pop subgenres. It can be compared to Retro, Vintage, Electro, Funk, and R&B.
