The New Jersey Music Industry Networking Mixer Meetup Announces First Event


The New Jersey Music Industry Networking Mixer Meetup Group has announced their first event which has been scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at Poitin Still in Hackensack, NJ. Everyone who is a member of the music industry and located in the state of New Jersey is encouraged to attend.

In an effort to establish a New Jersey music community, facilitate and enable networking and interaction among its members, and provide valuable business connections, the first ever New Jersey Music Industry Networking Mixer has been announced. Scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at Poitin Still in Hackensack, NJ, everyone who is involved in the music industry and located in the state of New Jersey is encouraged to attend. RSVPs are required.

The mixer is the first scheduled event for the newly formed NJ Music Industry Networking Mixer Meetup Group. The group is open to business professionals involved in the music industry such as musicians, DJs, producers, label reps, bands, artists, remixers, managers, bloggers, promoters, interns, etc, as well as business professionals in related industries that provide services to the music industry such as publicists, graphic designers, videographers, etc. Attendees of the event are encouraged to bring business cards and demos for successful networking.

While the event is free to attend, RSVPs are required. The link to sign up and RSVP can be found here – NJ Music Industry Networking Mixer

Group organizer Carla Lisinski states, “Since moving to New Jersey several years ago, I’ve found it very hard to connect with other music industry professionals in the area. Brooklyn has its community. Manhattan has its community. New Jersey doesn’t seem to have one. So by creating this group, we hope to bring people together and encourage business networking specifically for this industry group.”

OK!Good Records, a local independent record label based out of Teaneck, New Jersey, has signed up to sponsor the event and will be in attendance as well as covering administrative expenses and providing free giveaways. The group remains open to additional sponsorships.

Date of event may change to the following week due to impending snowstorm.

Hip Hop Duo I.O.U. from South Brunswick NJ Release Debut Album on Radikal Records


I.O.U., aka Inside Our Universe, have teamed up with Radikal Records to release their first full-length album in digital format. “The Soul And The Intellect” can be previewed and purchased right now on iTunes, with other digital outlets coming very soon (see http://radikal.com for details).

Radikal Records is proud to announce the worldwide release of I.O.U.’s debut album “The Soul & The Intellect,” available now on iTunes. I.O.U., an acronym for Inside Our Universe, is comprised of Izee and Buck, two young artists from South Brunswick, NJ who have created a following with their clean, mainstream pop/hip-hop sound, comparable to acts such as Black Eyed Peas.

After three school pride anthems that went viral, and three mixtape releases in the past two years garnering attention from their Rutgers University colleagues and fellow college students across the country and beyond, opening for countless acts such as Big Sean, Far East Movement, Jake Miller and more, the boys linked up with Radikal Records to release their debut album.

“The Soul & The Intellect” reflects the characters of both Buck and Izee, laidback Buck being the soul of the duo, and methodical Izee, producer behind the entire project, the intellect. Also featured as a vocalist on two tracks off the album is Evangelia, a Rutgers University student. When she’s not studying pre-med, you can catch her performing at the local coffee shops armed with her guitar and powerful voice.

Emerging Artist Salt Ashes Announces Single Debut With “Somebody”


Salt Ashes’ first single “Somebody” will be released in digital format on January 14th via Radikal Records. Visit http://www.radikal.com for more information.

Emerging singer Salt Ashes, aka 22 year old Veiga Sanchez, announces her debut single “Somebody,” set for release on January 14th on Radikal Records via all major digital outlets, including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

On “Somebody,” Salt Ashes brings to life the imaginings of Kate Bush dancing in a haunted Studio 54 to electronic pulsing grooves and lyrical escapism “Somebody take me… away.” “Somebody” is complemented by the B-side “Little Dove,” a jewel of a track with fragmented, brooding vocals. The package is tied up with UK Dj/Producer Cruelty’s soulful, slick italo-disco remix of the original “Somebody.”

A special edition 12″ vinyl single is also planned for release some time in February or early March. Only 1,000 units will be produced of this sure to be collector’s item, with limited distribution in the US and UK. Fans can check the Radikal Records for news regarding the release of the vinyl single.

Obsessed with Giorgio Moroder’s blend of disco and epic dark atmospheres, Salt Ashes first sprang to attention with her cover of Depeche Mode’s “Black Celebration.” Salt Ashes has spent the past year honing her own songs in the studio, creating her signature electronic grooves, and drawing influence from artists as diverse as Madonna, Kate Bush, Daft Punk and MIA.

“Somebody” is just the first taste of this young talent, Salt Ashes, who will be releasing her first full length album sometime in the summer of 2014.

Jidax, Enzo Darren and Chester Rushing Team Up for Single “Paint The World”


Jidax and Enzo Darren’s “Paint The World” featuring Chester Rushing will be released on January 14th on all major digital outlets, including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify via Radikal Records. Visit http://www.radikal.com for more information.

Jidax and Enzo Darren’s “Paint The World” featuring Chester Rushing will be released on January 14th on all major digital outlets, including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify via Radikal Records. The single package also includes remixes by Lush & Simon and Dirty Rush & Gregor Es. All tracks may be listened to for free or purchased on the Radikal Records website.

“Paint The World,” an inspirational club track with an uplifting vocal melody is the result of a collaboration between some familiar and up-and-coming names in EDM.

At a time of constant thunder for the ranks of EDM, Jidax have let their spotless arsenal of peak time crowd pleasers do all the talking. Coined as the “French Phenomenon” courtesy of their consistent releases and taken under the wing of superstar DJ turned mentor Steve Aoki, support from Tiesto, Afrojack and Thomas Gold alike has heralded that for all their youthful exuberance, the young Parisian duo has set a new precedent in the audacity modern electro can breath into the equation of modern dance music.

Enzo Darren is one of the most up-and-coming EDM artists of his generation. His signature sound, based on catchy melodies and heavy beats, gives his music a unique imprint. Supported by the world’s biggest DJs and producers including Nicky Romero, Tiesto, W&W and Dada Life, he has signed several successful releases on Ferry Corsten’s label Flashover Recordings. He often hits Beatport Progressive House Top 100. In early 2013 he obtained the Swedish Platinum Award for collaborating as remixer on the track ‘Dance Our Tears Away’ by John De Sohn. Enzo Darren represents, without doubt, the new face of the french house music scene.

Chester Rushing is a young, American singer songwriter who’s hot on the heels of super-stardom. “Paint The World” is his first offering into the EDM genre, but perhaps not his last.
