222 Premiere Video For New Single "One Night Stand"

Sometimes a girl can only take so much and drastic actions prove fatal. That is the underlining theme behind the new single/video "One Night Stand," by L.A. alternative rock duo 222. The single / video is off the band's debut album Libretto and chronicles the tale of a one night stand leading to a guy stalking the girl until One Night when she decides to take a Stand for herself by killing him and burying him under her house. The video shows her secret might be out when a friend comes over to visit and the girl thinks she hears what she thought she got rid of. See video here: (

"One Night Stand" has enjoyed success on Rodney Bingenheimer's legendary radio show "Rodney on the Roq" and is currently being played on college and alternative stations radio across the country. The band is performing select dates this fall to support the release. Dates to be announced. (

222 is Jade Howard and Dennis Hamlin. The duo wrote, played all the instruments, and recorded the songs on Libretto themselves in their home studio with the only other credit on the album going to Frank Rosato who mixed the record. Howard and Hamlin are both prolific songwriters drawing their musical influences from books, movies and life experiences."One Night Stand" is loosely based on the Edgar Allen Poe story the Tell Tale Heart. The collection of songs on Libretto play much like an opera in that every song is a story. Yet don't let the opera reference fool you, the album is a collection of pop punk / 80s/90s influenced rock mixed with current techno influences that together deliver 222's own power packed take on dance rock. Listen to Libretto here: (

"One Night Stand" and Libretto are available on iTunes, and Amazon.

Missing Link Music Signs Interscope Recording Artists Far East Movement

Missing Link Music has signed renowned Interscope recording artists Far East Movement to a worldwide administration deal. Dominating the Billboard 200 with two consecutive albums "Free Wired" and "Dirty Bass," Far East Movement have produced massively successful hits such as, "Like a G6," "Dirty Bass," and "Rocketeer."

The single "Like a G6", featuring singer Dev, hit Number One on both the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and on iTunes in late October 2010, making them the first Asian-American group to earn a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition, their song "Round Round" was featured in the 2006 film "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," and its subsequent soundtrack, video game and DVD.

Since "Round Round", the group has been featured on various network shows including "CSI: Miami", "CSI: NY", "Entourage", "Gossip Girl", and "Finishing the Game" (a featured film at Sundance 2007).

FEM members Kevin Nishimura (Kev Nish), James Roh (Prohgress), Jae Choung (J-Splif) and LA's radio station Power 106 DJ, Coquia Virman (DJ Virman) say that Far East Movement is a product of late night music and parking lot free-styles at various clubs in Koreatown, L.A.

"We felt we needed to bring the sound home, so we took almost a month off from touring and went out every night to karaoke rooms and bars and just lived," recalls Kev Nish.

The result is a return to their roots and a re-invention. If the best rap is often regional, FEM captures the sonic diversity of one of the biggest melting pots in North America.

Missing Link is honored and excited to include FEM in its increasingly diverse catalogue of music. …………………………………………………..
