Esteemed New Wave Rock Band, Wang Chung Announces US Tour To Coincide With The Release Of CD "Abducted By The 80's"


Los Angeles, CA - May 10, 2010 - In the current state of rock music, there are not many bands that are likely to see the kind of success achieved by veterans, Wang Chung.

Coming out of the post-punk era of the 1980's UK music scene, the band – throughout their 30 year career – has released 5 albums, 2 greatest hits compilations and has had 6 US Top 40 hits.

In the process, Wang Chung has become part of the vernacular of modern-day pop culture. The smash hit, "Everybody Have Fun Tonight," brought to the forefront the creation of a new verb utilized by everyone from Homer Simpson and Frasier Crane to Austin Powers (check out the web site for some great samples).

Their current upcoming release, "Abducted By The '80's," is comprised of a double CD package. CD One, also known as "Wang," consists of the band's biggest hits, including re-recorded versions "Everybody Have Fun Tonight," "Dance Hall Days," "Let's Go" and an acoustic version of "To Live and Die in LA," CD Two, or "Chung," features brand new material. The lead track, "Rent Free" is an homage to the band's history of catchy pop tunes with "Stargazing" and "London Orbital" also connecting to that legacy.

During the interim of the post Wang Chung era, founders Nick Feldman and Jack Hues have certainly maintained busy schedules. In 1995, Nick co-wrote "I Am A Man," with Suggs, (lead singer of the group, Madness) for the film remake of the hit British television series, The Avengers. The song became a top UK hit.

Feldman then went on to an A&R position at Warner UK and later, head of A&R for Sony Europe / Sony BMG, signing Bullet For My Valentine, amongst others.

Jack Hues worked on various soundtracks in the 1990's, including the William Friedkin film, The Guardian. He later teamed up with Tony Banks (Genesis) to form the one-off group, Strictly Inc. The band released a self-titled album in 1995.

Following this, Hues formed the hybrid-jazz unit, The Quartet. They recorded two albums, Illuminated (2007) and Shattering (2008). Both CDs were released through producer, Chris Hughes' (Paul McCartney, Peter Gabriel) label, Helium.

Interest in "Abducted By The '80s," arose as the result of Wang Chung's featured involvement in the "Regeneration Tour" with British pop act, ABC. Since then, Feldman and Hues have been honing material for the new CD.

The 2010 tour will begin at Anthology in San Diego, CA on June 10th and finish at Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA on July 10th. For complete itinerary, please check schedule below.

Initial response to "Abducted By The '80s," has been very favorable and by the looks of things, houses are likely to fill quickly. For a free download and ongoing details, check out

Reginald MaGee "Pressing On"

Reginald MaGee Reverbnation page:

Stand Up, the latest single from gospel singer Reggie Magee's debut album "Pressing On" showcases Magee's unique style. His unique ability to fuse traditional gospel themes and vocal styles with distinctly urban beats and grooves makes this artist one worth listening to. In "Stand Up," Magee sings about the hardships everyone faces in life and how faith can blaze a path through the hardest times. "You've got to be strong," croons Magee, "and keep your head up to the sky." Faith is the prevailing theme in this, and most, of Magee's music and his distinctive style and funky sensibility are truly special.


Sing And Sign A Language: Spanish Opens Up A World Of Spanish Language Learning


Sunset Strategic Marketing (SSM) is setting up their first release that will tap into the children's marketplace with the Sign and Sign a Language: Spanish three (3) CD Set.

The "Sing And Sign A Language: Spanish" CD Set is not only a specially packaged three (3) CD set, the initial concept for this type of a release was also produced to create a learning kit for children in their greatest development years. The entire set was then developed by Susan Dezenhall Schwartz along with sound man, Eric Aubrey at his Red Armadillo recording facility outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The entire project was produced, performed and recorded by (Susan Dezenhall) Schwartz, a linguist, composer, vocalist, educator and mother.

(Susan Dezenhall) Schwartz, unimpressed with the educational programs available for children's learning, decided to create a learning program herself and for the students she teaches every day. Starting this inevitable series of language learning products with Spanish became the obvious choice considering the ethnicity of children in her classes. However, Don Lichterman, the head of Sunset Records / SSM says that there are "plans to franchise this concept with more languages like Hebrew and French," and that was always "the plan with Susan and me from day one."

After three years of study, research and development, this very special set comes out as a CD and the label has already made way for the entire set to be available as downloads and ringtones. Lichterman goes on to say that "Susan (Dezenhall Schwartz) seems thrilled to have this be placed in stores," and "I am thrilled to be working a project for kids." This is first educational related product released at the Sunset/SSM company and the launch of this premier Spanish set "Sing and Sign A Language: Spanish" is perfect to educate and the songs are a great listen. The set includes not only lyric's in Spanish, there is also a translation to English in the nicely packaged inside booklet and there are lesson plans for kids to follow along with too. The label; has these booklets available online (pdf) for everyone to download and print them out for free.

What is now called, The Sing and Sign a Language Series as a concept takes a unique approach at teaching the Spanish language to children and after hearing the Spanish CD set from beginning to end, it is easy to see how teaching and learning languages can be fun, colorful, easy and enjoyable. The "Sing And Sign" approach is set up to simulate a fun learning environment by introducing easy words to learn in every day conversations, introducing vocabulary through a story, keying on commonly spoken words, terms, sentences, phrases for easy use every day, uses an array of teaching resources and materials for children's and parents to learn these lessons in an efficient way, and most of all, the goal is to keep things fun while learning. Don Lichterman, the head of Sunset said that "the best part of about this project is the overall reaction to it, and I am confidant by the pre sales at Amazon, let alone that initial reaction to the set, that this will be a great teaching and learning tool for kids and parents."Not only do I feel this set help people teach and learn Espanol, the songs are great to listen to in general," says (Don) Lichterman about the three CD set.

The CD includes songs that sound like classics/standards like the "Bienvenidos" and "Adios" intro and outré to each lesson plan, is not only accessible to people, it is also recognizable in some ways. And, there are a total of thirty seven (37) Spanish versions of songs that sound like there is choir of kids singing behind the lead vocals. The songs are also set up in ways for children to learn in a chronological way and to be able to follow along with throughout the entire Set. Disc one is Lesson I / Level I while the second disc is for Lesson/Level Plan II and then the third disc is the Level II lesson plan. Consumers will be able to buy all three (3) CDs in one set from retail stores that sell CDs and DVDs, and consumers will also be able to buy individual songs and the individual Discs at stores that sell downloads and streams. The overall sound is very colorful and the CD is perfect to listen to at home, in a car, as well as with teachers and parents.

Moreover, "Sing and Sign a Language" is a multi purpose type of a CD release that is to be used at home and the label also will be working with Alibris to get the product into libraries and educational facilities around the world. The label plans to work this into school programs and/or educational enrichment programs that teach the languages. And, teachers, educators and parents do not need to know the Spanish language to use this product in an effective and efficient way. Parents and teachers will learn the language too as they teach it. Both English and Spanish are translated as part of the special packaging. The lesson plans are also included in that special packaging.

The "Sing and Sign A Language: SPANISH" is the debut release and there are plans to create more multimedia educational projects at SSM. The content on the CD set tells a story in a way to help you learn every day things about life.

Mac Dividinz Gets Set Up With Sunset Urban With Their Debut International Release Of Hypersonic!


Mac Dividinz gets set up with Sunset Urban with their debut international release of Hypersonic!

Hypersonic is the debut CD by Mac Dividinz being released at Sunset Urban.

Some veteran rap and hip-hop aficionados have articulated many concerns over the direction of hardcore rap in the recent years and dating back to the early 90's. Their argument is that hardcore rap told a story with a heavy conscience in the '80s, and then rap segued to talking about their own bling while they dove in sports cars pitting east coast and west coast rappers proudly referring to their own selves as, a "thug" while smoking blunts surrounded by "bitches, hoes, and hotties shaking big booties." However, in today's world, rap can be very positive and uplifting with MCs and popular rap bands like the Roots, Too $hort, Public Enemy, Common, Eminem, Ice T, Blackalicious as well as other rappers that sing with that hardcore and style that is very much in your face. Mac Dividinz's debut album, Hypersonic, is no doubt hardcore and no doubt in your face from beginning to end of this CD. The Oklahoma-based rapper was a teen when he initially started rapping music while today; his songs have grown to be very accessible to any audience that loves rap music. He speaks about socio concerns in a very severe way.

For instance with the initial single being worked to the urban radio format to stations all over the world, "I Got This" communicates an accessible story geared to grab anyone from any socio environment. Hypersonic is not an album filled with songs with words that are making an attempt to save the world, "but he is no doubt sending a huge message to the world," says Don Lichterman, the head of Sunset Urban. (Don) Lichterman goes on to say that it's a "tribute to his (Mac Dividinz) talent and that he loves what he does with rapping his music" and that Sunset Urban is releasing a "serious rap album that is an unprecedented 67 minutes long CD." The Mac Dividinz debut album a quintessential down and dirty rap album that will overwhelm rap music lovers with the "in your face" style and "in your face" music theme. "(Mac) Dividinz is not reinventing the wheel so to speak," says (Don Lichterman from Sunset, "it is one the best rap albums from beginning to end in a very long time and I mean every song on Hypersonic is a top level." The overall beat coupled with his rap, is contagious, deep and is very strong music. (Mac) Dividinz has great melodies with catchy hooks on every song. The sixteen (16) songs on the Hypersonic CD is an entertaining example of down home hardcore rap music.

Born David Jones and raised in Oklahoma, USA, (Mac) Dividinz grew up with an eye on his artist career. As a teen, he followed the lead of his influences growing up by writing and performing on his own, until he eventually sent in the "raps" to (Don) Lichterman at Sunset Urban. Bothe Sunset and Dividinz feel this is the perfect fit considering the career of Mac (Dividinz) and with Sunset Urban, the hip hop and rap label at Sunset. "I was so impressed with his rap, it took me days to close that deal," says Lichterman whom signed the up and coming rap artist to his Sunset Urban Record label. The label had initially hope to get it out this year but considering the length of the full length CD and its sixteen (16) songs; it was worth waiting until the street day in 2010 on January 26th.

The Blood Of Heroes - Blinded

The Blood Of Heroes - Blinded:

The world is laid to waste; a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Bands of armed looters scurry across the ash-strewn landscape, locked in constant battle with enemies seen and unseen. What was once a functioning society is now a lawless land, kill or be killed. This is the vision of the world that is created by the "The Blood of Heroes" with the song "Blinded," their debut track from their first record, "The Blood of Heroes." A crashing beat of electronic drums, found sounds and distorted guitar coalesce into an intense end-of-the-world stew. All fans of dub, drum and bass and ambient music will enjoy this new group.

A raft of awards followed as Mark was nominated for four Brit Awards, a Mercury Music Prize nomination, an MTV Europe Music Awards nomination and five MOBO Awards nominations, where he took home Best R&B Act.

Mark's last outing was Innocent Man featuring DMX, the lead track from his 2006 album, which also appeared in sample form on Innocent Man (Misunderstood) by Cassidy, reaching #3 on Billboard's Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart in November 2007.

Iraq Suicide Bombers Are Not The Only Thing 'Blowing Up' In Baghdad: Could This U.S. Army Soldier Be The Next Hip Hop Phenom?


MAY 09, 2010 (Baghdad, Iraq)

Everyone around the world knows that the United States Military is supporting the Iraqi Government as they rebuild their country. What everyone doesn't know is... What do the soldiers do in their free time (if they ever have any)? Some soldiers may do the occasional online class courses in order to get one step closer to their degree. Then, there's one soldier in particular that the only course he is on, is the course to 'Take Ova' the HipHop/Rap game. He is known in the United States Army as SPC Peltier (age 22), but when it comes to his music he likes to be called KPee. While in Iraq, KPee has put together his '6th Man' Mixtape (you can download it here ) and the newly released 'The Take Ova' album. (you can buy it here ) Although his tour in Iraq is almost coming to an end, we can only imagine what his plans are when he returns to the United States. "Aside from going on my trip to Las Vegas, I plan on really trying to get my music heard.. and not just in Iraq..." KPee states as he smiles. Take it from KPee, this just shows that anywhere in the world people can work towards making their dreams come true... even on the battlefield!
