DJ Miss Tara Presents The Video For Her New Single ‘Invincible’

The remarkable new video for DJ Miss Tara’s latest single, ‘Invincible’ depicts a combination of acrobatics and fire dancers in the representation of a character who refuses to be defeated under any circumstances.

This video complements the relentless bass of the track perfectly and again shows DJ Miss Tara’s ability and versatility.

“Invincible” is the opening track of the DJ’s latest project, “Let’s Live!” and provides an electric introduction to the album. The phrase ‘we’re taking over’ features heavily in this single, which seems like a statement of intent as part of an album which presents DJ Miss Tara as a tour de force in EDM and marks the Canadian out as an artist to watch this year.

The video for ‘Invincible’ lurches from the surreal to the incredible and back again. A character taking off a horror mask to cover another’s face in blood, while surrounded by fire dancers may seem out of place in another video, yet the scene is a fitting addition to DJ Miss Tara’s single. She seeks to provide viewers with a memorable, shocking experience, which entertains them in a way that conventional EDM videos simply fail to.

As the main character in the video jumps in a series of ninja-style acrobatics, it becomes clear that the DJ is determined to offer not just a new perspective of the genre, but a style of EDM which complements this high energy, high intensity manoeuvres, which would be more commonly associated with an action film than a dance music video. This video, like DJ Tara’s new album, is not for the faint-hearted.

The official video for ‘Invincible’ and album ‘Let’s Live!’ is out now. 2017 is certain to be a special year for DJ Miss Tara.

Chonkillah Drops His Hot New Single Medicine

VIDEO: https://youtu.be/2Vi5cP46z0k

Medicine is the electrifying new single from West London sensation Chonkillah. Drifting away from lyrical triviality, Medicine is lyrically engaging and discusses a man’s deep love for a woman, who he sees a his ultimate source of happiness and as the cure for his problems. The beat is original and exhibits Chonkillah’s unique, extremely catchy style. Having made music for many years, Chonkillah draws inspiration from a variety of artists, ranging from Michael Jackson, to The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, to Naughty By Nature, to Eminem and aims to break repeat buttons on many a computer with energetic music which can be listened to and enjoyed again and again. The song’s hook is as difficult to forget as the song is to remove from your playlist.

Chonkillah stays true to his roots in Medicine’s official video, taking in the views of London and providing some excellent shots of the city’s landscape, which are interspersed by shots showing his love for the woman who is his medicine.

The song encapsulates the positive music which Chonkillah seeks to promote, spreading love around the world and getting everyone dancing. As we enter 2017, a year which is set to be marked by rising political tensions across the UK, this feel good tune, which inspires unity in the pure enjoyment of life, could be an ideal medicine for this increasingly negative and divisive political climate.

One fan said “Its music from the heart that hits you right between the eyes.”

In a recent interview, David said, “I think what people will hear is something different but yet familiar. Different in terms of what I hope is a really honest and sincere message to everyone to wake up out of the distractions of social media, television and striving to accumulate stuff!

Vaters added, “We as human beings are flawed. Period. So as flawed human beings it is only by God’s grace we can have hope that so many of us desperately need these days. I like to speak and write in a uncomplicated, compelling way that people will get it. It comes down to being relevant, real and true.”

David deliberately steps into a creative and artistic relevant way crafting his style that is varied but uniquely David in Americana, Country, Pop/Rock and Christian music genera’s with a collection of compelling songs with a unique sense of musical innovation.

“I feel like it’s a good season regardless of what we see online & in the mass media and around the world every day,” Vaters says, leaning back into the leather chair in the studio in Alabama. “After writing 400+ songs I have to say I’m pretty passionate about the songs on this album!

I am really excited about how they are going to move the listener, especially if they take the time to hear the lyrics and the recording nuances of the live off the floor players (in most cases). I’m having fun and I’m excited about this recording including the CCM timely single This Cross and It’s Time and cross over songs like 8 Ways from Sunday and Running to You.”

“What people are saying about David Vaters and A Voice in the Wilderness Volume One …

“A very honest singer-songwriter album, with a Dylan-esque delivery of heartfelt lyrics to God, to family, to friends…very refreshing to hear.”
Bob Farrell Grammy Award Songwriter and Producer

“What a total breath of fresh air! This record is unique and original, and full of an element seemingly missing in music in general.
It is the honest heart cry of a man birthed from the soul of David Vaters, this recording is full of songs about real life, our struggles and victories, and even the grief of saying goodbye.” “It is my pleasure to recommend this collection of songs from one of the most original artist I’ve ever produced.
David Vest – Producer and Musician

‘I encourage everyone to give this one a listen. “A Voice in the Wilderness” is a voice that calls out to everyone, and should be heard around the world!

No sound-alike here. David Vaters has been gifted with a uniquely-raw vocal style that takes a lyric and breathes life into every word.
This is heartfelt music that reaches down deep and grips the soul. Hear now a ‘voice’ unlike any other in Christian music today.
Myron Nash – Network TV and Movie Producer

10 A-List Producers Re-Imagine ‘Funkytown’ Hit In Genres Ranging From A Cappella To Metal And More In ‘The Funkytown 15’

After being featured in more than 100 movies, TV shows, TV and print advertising, and other media platforms around the world since it was an international hit in 1980, “Funkytown,” the one-hit wonder, has now morphed into 15 new incarnations* on The Funkytown 15 (F15).

Audio Album Versions:
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLseALQwj0qDMG_UpJLnb6GlrR6H73G9Um

Shaped by veteran A-List industry producer-musicians like Ed Boyer (Glee, Pitch Perfect, many others), John Fields (Nick Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Switchfoot, Demi Lovato), Steve Lu: (Shakira, Christine Aguillera, others ), Aaron Alexander (numerous jazz and Klezmer groups) and others, the new versions of “Funkytown” range from A Cappella to Metal, Classical, Klezmer, Marching Band, Blues, Jazz and more* (there’s even a delightful Christmas mash up).

The unusual but highly engaging collection is the brainchild of the man who wrote the original under the Lipps, Inc., moniker, Steven Greenberg. Greenberg also served as the project’s Executive Producer. The innovative re-imagining of the tune from the end of the disco era has been heard on everything from The Simpsons, Contact, Oprah, Friends, ER, Shrek 2, professional sporting events like the Olympics in Italy, to car ads for Nissan Volkswagen, etc. (See The List in Media Kit — by request).

The Funkytown 15 had a soft launch on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora and other channels late last year. It was inspired, in part, by an old collection of “Louie Louie” covers Greenberg liked from a Rhino Records compilation — and the song’s apparently endless appeal to Music Supervisors, advertising creatives and the general public, including new generations who have discovered it in different mediums.

“I wanted each genre version of ‘Funkytown” to stand on its own, like each is its own work of art, and I think the producers on every version did exactly that,” says Greenberg. “But the reason I wanted to create these different ‘Funkytown’ genres was primarily for the future.”

“I thought there should be different styles of the song beyond the original disco version, so that future generations could discover it, the way that the generation that grew up with Shrek 2 was turned onto it when it was prominently featured in that popular film in 2004. That one film made it a gold record again in the digital download age,” Greenberg adds. “I really like how these new tracks came out, but I don’t think I’m done yet ‘cuz it was so much fun — and there are more key genres that it can be adapted to like Country, Salsa, Hip Hop, EDM, Techno and more.”

“We have been actively pitching and working this amazing composition for years with much success, ” notes Wendy Christiansen, Senior Vice President for Film and TV, Strategic Marketing & Sync Licensing for Warner/Chappell Music, which publishes and licenses “Funkytown.” ” The ongoing interest in ‘Funkytown’ after more than three-and-a-half decades — and the prominent placements it’s had in variety of media — makes it even more of a singular blockbuster brand unto itself! And we look forward to creating new opportunities for many years to come.”
