My Secret Island To Release "I Miss The Day" Single October 12

Featuring an iconic version of the classic "Riders on the Storm" by The Doors. The current single is called "I Miss The Day". Longing and hoping to one day meet the big love, which seems almost out of reach.

The single features three diverting, completely different versions of "I miss the Day". Included as special bonus is the catchy rock cover version of Tommy Roe's "Sheila", a number 1 hit from the 60s. MY SECRET ISLAND is extraordinarily unique.

"I miss the Day" will be available in digital and physical form in all good shops on October 12, 2012.

New Solo Recording Artist Jey Gibbs Wants To "Touch Yo Body" With Debut Single Release

When Jey Gibbs stepped foot on the stage of the legendary "Showtime at the Apollo," and opened his mouth, he was only 13, but he knew destiny was calling out to him. Singing since the age of four, the young artist was blessed with a gift that made the adults around him take note. So much so that even as a child he assisted his mom when she gave vocal lessons to the choir at his home church.

Today, the 24-year is cementing his talent with his debut independent single and video release of "Touch Yo Body." If "Showtime at the Apollo" was still taking auditions, its doubtful he would be boo'ed from the stage! Gibbs has a voice and style that naturally causes women to sway and swoon. With a dash of hip hop bravado; coupled with smooth R&B fever, Gibb's vocal approach is seasoned with special flavor. He gracefully exudes a lustful timbre, tempered with a vintage charm, that he calls "Da E-ffect." A gifted songwriter as well, with "Touch Yo Body," Gibbs seduces the ear while he cradles the heart with lyrics that unwind any semblance of resistance. Gibb's B-side release, "Shoulda Coulda Woulda," which he also composed, continues the lyrical seduction with an up tempo beat that bangs steady.

"I am happy to be able to finally throw my hat in the ring," reveals Gibbs. "It's taken a lot of hard word and sacrifice to bring my music to the table and I could not have done it alone. I am extremely grateful to the team I have around me. With these two songs, I'm singing to the women and I think with one listen, they will get the message loud and clear. I am an artist who is here for them." A Charleston, SC native, currently residing in Brooklyn, NY, Gibbs is a recent graduate of Long Island University with a bachelors in Media Arts. He hosts his own campus radio show, "Business with Jay."

Both "Touch Yo Body" and "Shoulda Coulda Woulda" were mixed and recorded at Harlem's popular Stadium Red Studios. When not singing and recording, Gibbs supplements his craft by working at La Guardia Airport as a Transportation Security Officer. But by the sound of his first solo offerings, that won't be for long.

em eff & Daaé Release Album On Cloud Collective Records

IDM, indietronic producer em eff (Michael Frazer) teams up with vocalist Daaé (Jesse Larson) for a new album entitled We Don’t Know. This digital release is out now on Cloud Collective Records. The album explores atmospheric chiptune landscapes treated with a dose of Daaé’s ethereal, intimately distant vocals.

After his previous album We Speak in Non Sequitur on Cold Tear Records, em eff, who is constantly reinventing his approach to production, was looking for fresh perspective. He found it with Daaé. On their collaboration, “I generally come up to her with some crazy ideas about processing vocals, recording a line of speech that seems to make no sense. She’ll look at me like I’m insane, but once the task is done, she’s happy with the sounds in context,” says em eff.

Recorded primarily in university offices and classrooms during the fall and winter of 2011 in Auburn, Alabama, the album in many ways reflects the dense and opulent colors of fall giving way to the stark, solemn, spaces of winter.

The album begins with the duo’s first collaboration, 1 Up Down, which was born out of frustrations with a long distance relationship. Daaé felt there was significant depth to the lyrics em eff wrote, particularly the line, “I never made a vacant promise”. “I feel like it’s hard to not make vacant promises in this life,” Daaé says. Much of the album adheres to a free association theme, allowing natural moments to surface in an otherwise unnatural, programmed, setting. Spontaneous writing sessions created lyrics such as, “Never test out your philosophy on animals,” found in Were We the Machine. Daaé comments, “It has to do with being brave.”

“We never determined what genre we were working in. It’s slightly sporadic in that sense but cohesive in the tone the album as a whole conveys,” em eff explains. The album’s title, We Don’t Know, reflects the uncertainties and volatility of the world right now both in practical terms such as how to make a living in this economy, to artistic realization. To illustrate this, the cover art uses Zener cards, which test ESP.

The album is available now on iTunes and every major digital music retailer.
