Los Angeles based record producer Joe Dancsak, a.k.a. JDVisionquest3000 has been making his mark in hip hop and electronic music lately, both on the west coast and in the Midwest.
By releasing a string of singles by Ohio rapper Nate Sylak through www.jdvisionquest3000.com, and using free social media sites such as Reverbnation, Dancsak has begun making a name for himself. Dancsak is currently ranked high in the Reverbnation Electronica charts for L.A. coming in at #44, and building an audience numbering over 100,000 in the process.
Dancsak has released 3 singles by Sylak, “Janie’s Song”, “One By One”, and “Superhigh”, all available at his website and Sylak‘s social media sites. Dancsak uses elements of electronica and indie rock music in his hip hop productions, lending a unique style to his sound.
The singles follow closely an appearance by Sylak, who is signed to Dancsak’s soon to be launched 3000 Music, on the Dr. Dre tribute album “The Chronic: A Millennium Tribute to the Songs of Dr. Dre”. Dan Hyman of the L.A. Weekly blog sited Sylak as the “…lone hero of the album…. This Sylak dude kills it, and he’s definitely worth a listen.” Hyman also wrote, “This Nate Sylak dude is easily the breakout artist of the album.” The album was subsequently streamed off Dre’s Aftermath website, affording Sylak wide exposure.
In addition, Dancsak was quoted in Buzzbin Magazine’s feature on Sylak, “Nate Sylak Makes His Own Noise,” a story about Sylak’s increasing popularity in the Ohio region and the state of the music industry. Dancsak is quoted as Sylak’s producer and as an informative source in the music trade. Journalist Chris Wig writes “…His L.A. based producer, Dancsak, believes that this latest development in Sylak’s career is indicative of larger structural changes within the music industry. While the producer of an emerging artist can provide beats, production, and guidance, the artist provides the hard work..” In that regard, Nate doesn’t stop,” Dancsak said. “The gun slinging aspect of rap has turned into how much product can an artist put out and keep the quality level high while they do it….”

Denae Gardner’s video and track “Welcome To America” is an eye opening, in your face look about what our country is and has become. With her lyrically graphic descriptions, this is one political song and video that are right on point. Done in the country music style, Gardner and her band are serious. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that she’s the Bob Marley of country music. Telling you about the reality of America today, using real up to date situations in her lyrics is one of her strong points. This video captivates you with scenes that are familiar to most of us who are even vaguely familiar with the news these days. The strength of Garnder’s lyrical content cannot be overstated - she is good! She has put herself out there to be heard and, believe me, she’s coming in loud and clear. This is an excellent video that is well shot, and the story it tells is profound. Her voice is very good, the band is excellent, and this could very well be a hit, especially with those who are socially conscious or aspire to be. Tthe music and flow of “Welcome To America” are very moving as this singer tells it like it is with a very emotional delivery and great style.
Their rendition of the song brings a fresh and innovative, catchy and intriguing approach of a rather obscure 1967 Rolling Stones track.
Contrary to the coarse and roaring Rolling Stones signature original, hooyoosay’s whispery and sensual lead vocal interprets the song lyrics in such a way that a slightly humorous but definitely light-hearted undertone is added.
The overall sound is reminiscent of late seventies rock, a good dose of Ian Dury-like characteristics being injected.
At the same time the continuously pounding drum beats give the track enough of a contemporary dance-feel to possibly also appeal to listeners of Rihanna, Katy Perry, Maroon 5 and the likes.
Still the whole package breathes a gentle softness, clearing it from the fatiguing impact that some stellar productions occasionally might impose.
For the so-called b-side, hooyoosay chose to record Allen Toussaint’s “Pain in my heart” in a modest arrangement, as an intimate, melancholic, acoustic jazzy blues ballad.
A video for both songs can be watched on YouTube
Or visit hooyoosay’s brand new artist website
where the single can be streamed and downloaded, and where many more recordings, artwork and videos by hooyoosay can be found.
If you’d have missed to notice their full album “In dekay” before, this new single, combining the verve of “My obsession” and the gloominess of “Pain in my heart”, makes for a compelling introduction to hooyoosay.

More about the bands:
The Medullary Paralysis:
The Medullary Paralysis is an idiosyncratic lifestyle. We don’t drink, we don’t take drugs, we don’t have mechanical sex. The problem is addiction. We have a new vision about how to enjoy life. We hate victimism and we practice compassion. Latex is nothing special. You don’t need to wear it 24/7 to own your life. Take the chance to be reborn.
Our ears were weaned on the eighties: through our parent’s music, the radio and the tv… then mix that subliminal background with the nineties during which we passed through our adolescence… You have an out-of-body experience when we mix The Smashing Pumpkins, Marilyn Manson and the 80s. Not-so-industrial-glam on the dance floor.
A gothic industrial based in Hong Kong, started in 2008.
Gothic industrial music has always possessed the mystic power that the majority is curious to probe but dares not to enter. In Hong Kong, the city that is soaked with canto-pop, vrank presents their debut album that cares for the minority, challenges the unfair standards that are constantly raised to the weak.
Probably true to many people that music is just for entertainment, which is quite politically-correct in a sense. vrank, however, selfishly exploit the medium as a ten-year soul-searching journey - a surreal expedition that exposes the hidden side in their minds, and very likely in others too. It is all subjective emotions through the music compositions and yet, it is also all objective contradictions through the cynical lyrics.
歌德工業音樂，一向擁有著強烈的神秘力量 ，好奇心令普羅大眾欲拒還迎。梵姬的首張大碟正正填補了香港樂壇的空白，挑戰流行音樂的沉悶局面。他們的音樂更得到外國音樂界的認同，被美國唱片公司 Quickstar Productions的邀請，把單曲aggression於本年初收錄於旗下精選大碟 Industrial Underground中。
BLΛK is an electronic band consisting of Hong Kong musicians Po Kei, Jacky, Angus and Marvin. With “Destroy and Create” as the band’s motto, their ambition is to create their visionary “Future Music” by destroying the traditional rock band format.
The band originate by Jacky and Po Kei, the active musicians in Hong Kong rock scene. Po Kei is the members of an Indie Rock band Good Fellas, Jacky is a member of an Alternative Rock band Velvette Vendetta. These 2 bands are famed for their phenomenal and energetic live performances, which has led them exposures in major venues & festivals such as Venetian Arena (Macau), Clockenflap (Hong Kong), A-Fest (Manila) & Baybeats (Singapore). After some successful years of the former bands, they decided to explore their talents in electronic dance music, employing VST, synthesizers, dance beats, and catchy hooks, in their pop melodic songs.
In 2012, Marvin (drummer from In Love and Pain!) and Angus (guitarist from Good Fellas) are invited to join the band, making BLΛK a full powerful dance music act. Don’t miss the chance to feel the intensity of their live performance.

42 Million Plays On Spotify - Independent Artist Nomy Releases New Album “Verity, Denial And Remorse”Tuesday, June 26th, 2012
Verity, denial and Remorse is the latest Nomy album to leave his home studio and be thrust into the ears of hungry fans. Available exclusively on Spotify from 13th June, the message on this album is personal and aggressive and with a stamp of “Parental advisory” on it. The title is based on true events and real relationships. It’s about people’s selfishness and how easy they betray the ones closest to them.
In this album Nomy continues to explore the darker sides of human nature drawing on a wide range of musical influences yet still maintaining the trademark Nomy sound.
“My new album will probably reduce friends but gain fans”
Nomy is one of the foremost success stories in the digital music age – demonstrating how the internet has leveled the playing field and enabled savvy artists to create a global platform for their music. From his home studio he has recorded and self-released music which has taken the world by storm.

Patrick “P.A.T.” Barnett’s “Big Deal” is a well-produced video and song that is clean cut and smooth at the same time. This young rapper delivers the goods in a manner that all can understand and without all of the obscenities that we’ve grown accustomed to in hip hop. “Big Deal” is definitely a big deal. It’s a slowly paced groove that is inspirational with words that have a message with a punch behind them. Barnett spits his rhymes so clearly that even your grandmother could understand them and would be proud. The video itself is filmed in black and white, and is chock full of shots of a young rapper trying to make it - in the studios, in the streets, and wherever he can. Sometimes, inspiration comes from strange places, and Barnett encourages listeners not to give it. He uses a nice jazz and hip hop blend for the mix, adding a nice hook to complete the package. The young southern emcee has also been the recipient of many awards, and his material is increasingly sought after in the underground music scene.
