California-based songwriting and publishing partners Marilyn Music have released a third track from their debut album Pure Rock. "Take a Ride in My Car," is now available for digital download as a single or as part of the "Pure Rock" CD.

Take A Ride In My Car is a guitar-driven ode to automotive flirtation, enticing the object of affection to indulge in some hot times in a cool car. The lighthearted lyrics combined with the rhythmic riffs make this a genuinely fun track. You can stream "Take a Ride in My Car" at

MarilynMusic's debut EP, Pure Rock, is a whirlwind tour through rock and roll history. Each song offers different timbres and seems to draw influence from a different place. With sound ranging from the Beatles to Steve Miller, these tracks are unique and definitely all rock.

MarilynMusic is the partnership of musicians/composers Michael Gaines and Casey Conrad. Gaines and Conrad created MarilynMusic to marry their love and knowledge of a broad range of musical genres with the tastes of today’s pop audience. The prolific duo has numerous tracks recorded and produced, with new material constantly coming down the pipeline. Gaines and Conrad collaborate on every aspect of the music from the writing to the finished product, but the two have distinct roles in the process. Gaines is primarily responsible for lyrical composition and Conrad produces the recordings. Both write the music and play on the recordings – Conrad on bass and drums and Gaines on guitar.

"Pure Rock" is available for purchase through iTunes at:

To complement and theme, Maya will personally serve the audience with her own homemade finger foods, and mingle with the attendees prior to each show.

Solovey stated, "Being able to do this residency is very exciting for me. Having themes for each night with respect to both the music and food gives me the opportunity to share more of myself, my heritage and my music with the audience. It allows me to explore more deeply the facets of what I do and am capable of doing as an artist."

Her song "Eu Vi" was featured in a Ralph Lauren runway video for winter fashion week, while her song "Como Yo Lloro Por Ti" will be featured on a in a FIFA World Cup compilation, and another 3 songs will be featured in an upcoming shark documentary called "Shark Allies". Tom Moon, on air critic for NPR, and journalist for Rolling Stone and Spin Magazine said, "Here's a rarity: An original voice who really is original! Drawing inspiration from all over the map, Maya Solovey has developed a deep, enchanting sound that's unlike anything else out there right now." Bassy Bob Brockmann, a multiple Grammy winning producer/mixer said, "Maya Solovey is an exceptional songwriter, possessed of a voice that is haunting, soothing, and erotic all at the same time. Her music, I'm sure, will change the world."

Japan's Number One Urban Radio Show Celebrates More Than 2000 Shows

Joint One Radio Show, hosted by former Los Angeles DJ, Joey Slick, celebrates over 2000 shows and 10 years on air as part of the all-star lineup on Tokyo Japan's INTERFM76.1 radio station.

Joey Slick is in the house!!! Joey who? You might ask. Disc jockey Joey Slick is the host of the weekly Joint One Radio show in Japan. This special mix show has been on the air & retained on behalf of undeniable ratings for the past 10 years on JODW 76.1 INTERFM Tokyo (Saturday nights from 11pm-12am). Joint One recently aired their 2,105th show, highlighting the recording industry's most current R&B, Hip-Hop/RAP & Reggae music! Known for keeping the programming fresh and "safely" open to extremes, the music appeals to a broad range of demographics, constantly increasing the show's popularity. (Dark Shadow Magazine)

Born and raised in Monterey Park California, a small town just outside of Los Angeles, Joey began his career as most DJ's did. At age 13, he and some friends gathered whatever equipment and records they could get their hands on and spun their disks at local school dances and parties. Dedicating his all to perfecting his craft over the next several years, Joeys sounds were eventually heard on KVCM, KUCI, KPWR, and various high profile events.

In 1999, while a live mix show DJ on Los Angeles radio powerhouse, KPWR 105.9 FM on the famed Baka Boyz show, Joey Slick was recruited to play on Japan's 81.3 FM for J-Wave's Soul Train Radio program, which was broadcasting live remote shows from Los Angeles. He was then invited to tour Tokyo, spinning live at J-Wave radio station and elite club events. Shortly after returning home, Joey Slick returned to Japan for another radio and club tour and on this trip, Joey played at J-Wave, Tokyo FM, Yokohama FM, Northwave FM, and InterFM. Within 2 weeks, after returning from this tour, he was recruited by Tokyo's 76.1 MHz InterFM and given a 4 hour prime time slot. (Monday - Friday 6PM - 10 PM Live) Joint One Radio was born and made Japanese Radio History as Joey's show drove 76.1 InterFM to the #1 spot in Japanese radio with the first ever prime-time urban radio show in the country. The Joint One Radio show has remained in the number one spot consistently for the last ten years and continues to make history with its pioneering founder, Joey Slick.

Joint One Radio, historically, remains the first show dedicated to contemporary R&B, Hip-Hop & Reggae music from American artists on prime-time radio. Utilizing quality control and context programming, Joint One Radio inclusively gives light to striving local Japanese music as well. Through the record pool, they have access to the newest music in the world. Their mission is to expose the freshest/hottest sounds to listeners of all ages. On tasteful occasion, they will even bring back and spin a classic from the 70's, 80's or 90's, just to prove that great music still has power and appeal. Joint One has also been producing new undiscovered artists, as well as creating their own original scores.

When it comes to music of this genre, Joint One Radio and Record Pool are the pipeline to all of Japan. When you think of where the heartbeat of American music is today, thoughts of Los Angeles or New York may cross your mind. At the very least, we may think that our radio stations should be playing the most current music in the industry. Think twice because most likely, these same songs were first aired on InterFM 76.1 Tokyo. (Dark Shadow Magazine)

Ever the Pioneers, Joey and partner Shuzz began the Joint One Record Pool Japan, in 2007 to service Japanese DJs with the latest selected joints from the U.S., as well as take on local talent, while providing the latest music from the Joint One Record Pool to a very hungry Japanese audience. Every Major and independent Japanese music label has worked with Joint One Radio and Joint One created opportunities for all U.S. labels to have their music exposed to Japan. Joint One Radio is still making history as Japan's longest running urban mix show and with Joey Slick as the first DJ to have an official site with NTT Docomo, Japan's largest cell service provider with over 50 million users. Exclusive Joint One mixes will be available on NTT Docomo later this year.

Joint One Record Pool was created in 1997 in Los Angeles, expanding into Japan in 2007, and Joint One, LLC was established by Shuzz in 2008, to make Joint One services available business to business. Joint One Japan, has exclusive touring opportunities and services available to visiting labels and artists. Worldwide listeners can tune in at or

My M.O. (NYC) Announces Monkey Remix EP Worldwide Release


My M.O.'s first official release is a 6 track EP featuring remixes by the emotionally-charged indie electronic single "Monkey". Dance and dubstep remixes by Doctrations of the Netherlands and HNH (HandinHand) of Brooklyn, NY. The EP includes two bonus tracks, the reggae infused, "Around the World" & and the Blondie inspired, "Lets Go Back."

The Brooklyn based group is making waves with their first release, the "Monkey Remix EP" and their debut album coming out this fall, but they are also busy playing live shows on the NYC circuit with their five piece band, which includes keys, bass, guitar, drums and percussion.

My M.O., is comprised of three young women hailing from different countries whose musical style is a harmonic blending of sounds that create a thumpin' pop mix of ethereal beats and lyrics. Though it should be said, that because the band has such a subtle hand in culling together such a broad range of sound, it's nearly impossible to peg them into any specific genre. So, let's just say this: The music is damn good.
By Max Eternity for

Here in the U.S. polygamy might be frowned upon (by conservatives), but in the video to My M.O.'s new single, "Monkey," the band makes you think, "Hey, why not?" It's funny to think about having your cake and eating it too, but Dion, Katy and Erika, the ladies of My M.O. take the lifestyle more seriously by holding a spiritual ceremony to give their unconventional relationship the respect it deserves. Sorry, it's not exactly the tale of unrequited love the way Woody Allen would have pictured. My M.O. at least make it to the wedding.
