28 Aug
I-Octane Seductively Takes on Your TimeLine

Kingston, Jamaica – Since releasing his third full length “Love & Life” at #3 on the Reggae Billboard Chart, the album has offered breakthrough tracks of all genres for the most discrimanting musical palet, from the message conscious “One Chance” to dancehall hit “Unfair Games”, fans and music lovers each have their own favorites!

The latest buzzworthy single “Timeline” has struck a familiar chord with fans. Written by Byiome ‘I-Octane’ Muir & Matthew ‘Esco’ Thompson, the TJ Records produced track was inspired by every day life. “These days everyone is a little obsessed with their phones and social media timelines. On this song I found away to connect the love for phones and with the love for physical intimacy. the lyrics are self explanatory” stated I-Octane

“Mi love when yu check me like yu message dem
Treat mi like yu pictures when yu tekking dem
Nuh worry bout yu ex an weh him seh
A jus me an yu baby, nuh let in dem
Keep me on like yu android Yu screen when yu unda it
Mi will top yu up but yu nah get nuh megabytes
Pon me spen yuh nights”

While “Love & Life” album is available worldwide, “TimeLine” single is available on your favorite platform via IDC http://smarturl.it/IOctaneTimeLine

Love & Life explores vibes like R&B, soca, pop, latin, EDM, afrobeats, and hip hop, while staying grounded in Jamaica’s own reggae and dancehall. Octane stands out, even among Jamaica’s most versatile musical talent, because of his ability to inhabit different styles of music with ease. Love & Life showcases this aptitude, and when it is applied to such a diverse ethno-pop soundscape, the result is an album that appeals to the multitude of factions in Octane’s scattered global fanbase.” – Dan Dabber for Reggaeville

Oakland Power Trio STIMULI to Release their Explosive Debut Album THEY ARE WE

6 Aug

STIMULI_Logo_2400px.png

 

For Immediate Release – Oakland, CA – Bay Area rock band STIMULI create thoughtful and heavy rock music about the human condition, delivered through Jimmy Tomahawk‘s melodic and edgy vocals and spacious and heavy guitar riffing, Tai Hake‘s solid and snarling bass tones, and Cole Andrew‘s intricate and powerful drumming. STIMULI will release their first official full-length album titled THEY ARE WE in stores and online worldwide on August 17, 2018. The album is a winding 11-track explosion of the trio’s dense, ambitious, and fiercely original sound.

In April 2018, the band generated buzz when they released their debut single and music video for the album’s title track, “They Are We.” The single knocks out a Hard Rock, radio-friendly sound that also exposes the introspective themes of understanding and empathy that permeates their new album. THEY ARE WE was recorded at the idyllic Russian River Studios on the Ingels Ranch in Talmage, California, where Tomahawk and Hake had previously recorded with their band Yeibichai. Ken Ingels, the owner of the studio, was extremely helpful, and they enlisted Andrew Miller to engineer and mix the album, and Mike Wells for mastering. For the artwork and album layout, the trio had their eyes photographed and then overlaid the irises so that the colors merge and overlap, accomplished thanks to the superb talents of Michael Miller at Digital Realm Productions, who brought their vision to life in a way that represents the music on the album exceptionally well.

Not only do STIMULI masterfully rock the traditional power trio format, the band also incorporates synth atmospherics and eclectic instrumentation that is not often associated with contemporary Hard Rock. Bassist Tai Hake also plays Theremin, and their music features Native American flute, sitar, acoustic guitar and ambient synthesizers. Lyrically, STIMULI’s themes possess a rare depth – insightful and meaningful, ruminating on personal experiences and reflections about peace, empathy, destiny, and self-actualization. Combined together, STIMULI are a sort of “Thinking Person’s Rock Band.”

While all members are of a shared generation, their influences run the gamut. The heavy, tight and polished sound of STIMULI has been compared to Alice in Chains, Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Tool, Rush, and Nirvana. The individual and collective history of the band is just as varied and multi-faceted as their music. Comprised of seasoned musicians from around the world (drummer Cole Andrew is from Australia), STIMULI is a collage of three very strong-willed personalities who, like most productive collaborations, happen to have chemistry and work well together.

“Our music contains a strong emotional intensity with personal, social, and philosophical messages about the human experience,” explains guitarist/vocalist Jimmy Tomahawk. “Although there is an undeniably serious disposition in the band’s message, as individuals, we don’t take ourselves very seriously at all – satire, slapstick humor and wisecracks are the norm when we are together. It’s a bit of a collective Jekyll & Hyde scenario, really. We try to remind ourselves that the initial spark of passion and the joy of playing music that caused us to pick up our instruments in the first place is why we do this!”

The formation of STIMULI began following the split of Bay Area rock band Yeibichai, the brainchild of Tomahawk and Hake. When Tomahawk came across a video of Cole Andrew demonstrating his powerful and detail-oriented drumming, he reached out and they began to jam. Tomahawk couldn’t imagine any other bass player but Tai in the room with the sounds that he and Cole were creating. In 2013, STIMULI opened up shop in their new studio space at the fabled Soundwave Studios in Oakland. It was here that STIMULI became a band and their deep friendship and musical bond was solidified.

In early 2017 STIMULI found themselves at a crossroads. Things suddenly felt new, vivified, and stronger among the three of them, but a glaring question remained: who would be the voice of the band? Jimmy Tomahawk decided then that nothing was going to stop him from fulfilling his original plan as a young teenager of being the vocalist in his own band. With the encouraging support of his bandmates, Tomahawk began to write, and at some point along the way, singing became as fluid and as much of an unconscious operation for Tomahawk as playing guitar. In just a few short months the band was in the studio tracking drums and bass for the new album.

STIMULI feel an unprecedented sense of optimism and joy with the music they are making. The audiences are reciprocating that energy that is conveyed at their live shows with great fervor. With much more to come from this exciting new Bay Area rock band, it would appear that STIMULI are just getting started!

Successful Debut from I-OCTANE for Long-Anticipated 3rd Studio Album “LOVE & LIFE”

24 Apr

Octane

Kingston, Jamaica (MPR CONSULTING) – On March 30th, 2018, International recording artist I-OCTANE released his long-anticipated “LOVE & LIFE” album. It had been 4 years (“Crying to the Nation” 2012 and “My Journey” 2014) since fans have been clamoring for the artist to deliver a musical offering.

Reflecting on his “Love & Life” journey, I-Octane expressed “Just want to say thanks to my fans who’ve waited 4 years for this project, It was a joy to see the album debut at #3 on US iTunes chart. Also want to say thank you to the media and music players (djs & selector) who have supported every move my team and i have made with this project and the fact that most of you not only promoted it but also went out and bought copies of ‘Love & Life’ makes me even more grateful to you all.

So much work went into creating this album because it would be the very first major production from my company (Conquer The Globe Productions) and I needed it to be perfect in every way so, I could not thank everyone and not say thank you to the people who sacrificed their private and social lives to make sure this album is a success. My team, I’m truly grateful for every one of you. Everyone’s input got us to where we are today. Thank you!”

Adding further “I am forever grateful for the support and love from my fans, team and the industry. And just want to say continue supporting this album by getting it on your favorite music site or ordering your hard copies from Amazon and spread the word. Much respect to my distributor IDC.” – I-Octane

Making its debut at #3 on iTunes Reggae charts, “Love & Life” album features 17 tracks with the addition of 2 bonus tracks produced by I-Octane’s own imprint label Conquer The Globe Productions distributed by California based IDC. The multi-talented crooner is presently on a promotional tour in New York, and will upon his return to Jamaica announce the date for his album release party ahead of the spring tour as a special guest to twice GRAMMY nominated J-Boog.

Fluid riffs, a unique and rhythmic style, thoughtful lyrics, inspired by I-Octane’s Jamaican roots, Love & Life is the type of album that we could expect from the artist, an album where he experiments new areas. Powerful, cohesive and creative as we can hear on the last track of the album “Weh di Fire Gone” which happens to be the second bonus track of the album.” – La Grosee Radio France

The album is a tribute to a true reggae style. Tropical notions and sunny production bleed through. Those mellow drums and accompanying vibes beg for replay value, which is exactly what you get from Love and Life by I-Octane.” – Indie Band Guru

Love and life” takes you on a musical trip through I-Octane’s musical mind touching the pleasures and struggles of Love and Life, using a good mix of Reggae and Dancehall tracks” – Danny Creatah, World A Reggae.

I-Octane’s ‘Love & Life’ opus picks up where his sophomore project, ‘My Journey’, left off with a full throttle into international terrains and no signs of looking back. Vocally and lyrically the Reggae crooner appears to be in his comfort zone; as if to play it safe with existing fans while officially introducing himself to new audiences.  It must be said that the album standouts come in the form of his collaborative tracks – with the likes of Shaggy, Ginjah, Demarco, Yanique (Curvy Diva), JBoog and Romain Virgo – but in the same breathe I-Octane didn’t allow them to outshine him.  Nonetheless, ‘Love & Life’ is the type of project you’d expect from I-Octane at this point in his career. Cohesive, potent, experimental and creatively crafted.” – Biko Kennedy, Music Journalist.
