{"key":"98351","name":"Tantrum Desire","bio":"A south east London based duo, who met in 2004 at a small pirate radio station through the love of drum & bass music. Before that time these individuals had portfolios in their chosen fields, which were producing and DJ\u2019ing. These talented artists then began working together towards their common goal, which was to break into the drum & bass scene.Experimenting and striving for constant perfection: Jay (Producer \/ DJ) and Devon (DJ) under the name Tantrum Desire , have continued their promotion campaign and expedition, appearing on internet radio shows such as, Kunninmindz, Planet dnb, UK Rumble and Kool FM.In 2005, a bunch of Tantrum Desire tracks on a load of CD\u2019s was passed out in Spain at a big drum & bass event. This then attracted Nu-Breed\u2019s - MC Shortston, who received a copy of the track collection and saw a spark in the production. This gave him some ideas and business plans to start up a new label called \u2018Heavyweight Records\u2019. This was the new home label for the boys, which released tracks such as, The Red Pill, Dreamscape EP, The Inner moon and White light, which had constant air play on radio stations such as 1xtra, Radio 1 and Kiss. Tantrum Desire also had bootleg projects lying around in the lab, which gave Shortston another idea to accompany Heavyweight with a bootleg label named \u201cBooty\u201d. This brought you releases such as, \u201cTransformers\u201d, \u201cJealousy\u201d, \u201cdrop it like its hot\u201d and \u201cCan\u2019t stop\u201d.In early 2008, Tantrum Desire was approached by one of the biggest pioneers in the game \u2013 Simon \u2018Bassline\u2019 Smith, who saw the variety of styles in the drum & bass productions and therefore became interested. This led him to making the guys an offer and signing them exclusively to his well established label - Technique Recordings. Straight away, Technique released Tantrum Desire\u2019s debut 12\u201d - \u201cXenomorph & the Last stand, which set their trademark in the scene for the sound of big baseline synths and orchestral intro\u2019s. Soon after, the boys featured in the award winning Knowledge Magazine, which gave an insight of the T.D team and a warning to the public that the guys would be bringing dance floor smashers on a constant level. Early 2009 brought to your ears the sound of \u201cCrazy Talk & Strength\u201d on Techniques sister label\u2019 World Wide Audio Recordings. This synth\u2019tastic release received great feedback and support from pioneers such as Grooverider, Jumping Jack Frost, Zane Lowe, Hype, Ray Keith and many more.Read more: http:\/\/www.myspace.com\/tantrumdesire#ixzz15NwyHSJG","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/98351_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"8485","name":"The Weeknd","bio":"The Weeknd, the stage name for Abel Tesfaye, is a Canadian singer-songwriter and producer.The Scarborough, Toronto-born singer, songwriter, and producer doesn't say much outside of his lyrics or personal messages through his social networking sites. Ever since appearing on the scene in late 2010, he's been shrouded in mystery, cultivating a mystique that baffles our gossip-obsessed pop culture. With that said, the 25-year-old alternative R&B phenomenon is an enigma in more ways than one.For him, it's not about becoming famous. It's not about becoming rich. It's not about pleasing anyone. It's about being honest, staying true to his art, and diving headfirst into the deep end. History's most impactful artists from Van Gogh and Charles Bukowski to Miles Davis and John Lennon faced both the abyss and the heavens. They knew about sex, drugs, pain, joy, and love, and they weren't afraid to talk about them openly.On his three-disc debut for XO\/Republic Records, Trilogy, The Weeknd is an open book, revealingeverything and nothing at the same time. There are moments of ecstatic electronic bliss like the irresistible \"High for This\", and then there's the propulsive poetic paranoia of \"House of Balloons\", which twists a sample Siouxsie and the Banshees' Happy House into a frenetic danceable coup. With an inimitable and divine voice, he sings of hazy nights that turned into hazier mornings and tumultuous trysts that spiraled into eternal longing. However, you can take whatever you want from it. After all, it is art.His trip officially began with the release of the nine-song free album House of Balloons in March 2011. It was the first in a series of three-including Thursday and Echoes of Silence-and it immediately set the blog-o-sphere ablaze. Soon after the initial instalment impacted the net, Drake quoted lyrics from the effort on Twitter and linked to the music, becoming the first of many A-list artists to champion it. The two quickly forged a tight friendship and fertile artistic partnership that extended to Drake's team.As they grew closer, the superstar MC even enlisted his talents for several tracks on the chart-topping, platinum-selling and Grammy Award winning album Take Care. Most notably, The Weeknd co-wrote, co-produced, and performed on \"Crew Love\", a bona fide hit single from the record. Further collaborating, Drake dropped a transfixing verse on \"The Zone\" from Thursday.The artist hit the road for his first sold out headline tour that summer, and the world began to embrace him with open arms from underground bloggers to taste-making music supervisors. \"High for This\" even served as the soundtrack to the trailer for the final season of HBO's long-running series, Entourage, a symbol of his infiltration into the zeitgeist.Meanwhile, critics and gatekeepers also fell under his spell. Complex dubbed House of Balloons the \"best album of 2011\", and Pitchfork honored it as \"Best New Music\". It conquered year-end lists, including Stereogum, The A.V. Club, The Guardian (UK), and Spin. MTV, BET, Rolling Stone, XXL, and others exalted it with equally high praise, while The Source called him the \"Songbird of his generation\".In the midst of everything, other marquee artists began to personally seek out his unique talent, and that was the highest compliment. He created the first formal remix for FLORENCE + THE MACHINE's \"Shake It Out\", and he put his stamp on LADY GAGA's \"Marry the Night\", yielding a seductive and sensual take on the single for Born This Way: The Remixes. The Weeknd also personally cooked up \"Remember You\" the second single for WIZ KHALIFA's anxiously awaited sophomore effort, O.N.I.F.C.In the summer of 2012, a groundbreaking strategic alliance between XO, creative collective visionary behind The Weeknd and Republic Records was established. Under this banner, Trilogy compiled House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence in one expansive collection, properly mixed, mastered, andfinished for the very first time. The 27 original tracks remain, but there's also a myriad of new material as well to please both the initiated and uninitiated alike. The doorway officially opens into his world with this effort.The first single \"Wicked Games\" bleeds brilliantly with a stark and vivid admission that's utterly enthralling. Keyboards resound through airy production as the vocals exude a dark sensuality. The singer admits, \"I love to watch you dance, take you down another level and get you dancing with the devil\", before the unforgettable, unbridled hook, \"Let me motherfucking love you\".You're going to motherfucking love him. Live audiences continue to as well. In addition to surprise appearances on DRAKE's Club Paradise tour and a stint supporting FLORENCE + THE MACHINE, he dazzled crowds at the biggest festivals in the world including Coachella, Primavera Sound Festival, and the Wireless Festival in London and on a seemingly endless run of sold out headline gigs. The next chapter has begun though.Coming together, Republic Records and the Canadian XO are paving the way for a revolution. Already, XO has progressed from an intimate Toronto operation into an international player. Everything stems from the music though, and it always will. THE WEEKND addressed fans in an open letter online, \"You will continue to get what you fell in love with, and I will continue to give you what you ask for. No matter what an artist's ego clouds them to believe, you are the reason why I have been able to continue to do what I love to do and that is to entertain you.\" He released his second album, \"Kiss Land\", on September 10, 2013.(2) Allegedly \"shrouded in mystery\" despite a social media presence (with accompanying photos) on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Soundcloud, and YouTube, as well as major support from fellow Torontonian Drake, alternative R&B act the Weeknd \u2013 a solo outlet for vocalist Abel Tesfaye \u2013 surfaced in March 2011 with House of Balloons. A nine-track, 50-minute mixtape made available for free download on the Weeknd website, House of Balloons was based in morose ballads filled with drug references and sexual longing. Sonically, there were clear traces of radio-friendly contemporary R&B \u00e0 la Trey Songz, Jeremih, the-Dream, and Drake, while also appealing to listeners who favored left-of-center, production-over-songcraft exponents like Spacek and Sa-Ra. The mixtape, made by Tesfaye in collaboration with producers Doc McKinney and Illangelo, among others, garnered widespread coverage \u2013 most of which was gushingly positive \u2013 within days of its March 21 release. A second mixtape, Thursday (August 19), preceded several appearances on Drake's album Take Care. Echoes of Silence (December 21), the third Weeknd mixtape, followed just before the end of the year. The following June, \"Crew Love,\" off Take Care, reached the Top Ten of Billboard's Hot R&B\/Hip-Hop chart. A few months later, he was featured on another charting single, Wiz Khalifa's \"Remember You.\" After Tesfaye signed with Universal Republic, the three Weeknd mixtapes were remastered and bundled with three new songs for Trilogy, issued in November 2012. The set debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 chart. The following April, Tesfaye won Juno Awards in the categories of Breakthrough Artist of the Year and R&B\/Soul Recording of the Year. Trilogy was certified platinum by the RIAA the next month. Kiss Land, much darker in tone than its title implied, followed in September 2013 and debuted at number two. Out of its several singles, only \"Live For,\" featuring Drake, touched the Hot R&B\/Hip-Hop chart. Tesfaye had much more success with a series of non-album singles that followed. \"Often,\" released in 2014, was a Top Ten R&B\/Hip-Hop hit. He was featured on Ariana Grande's \"Love Me Harder,\" which reached the Top Ten of the Hot 100 and went platinum in the U.S. \"Earned It,\" featured in Fifty Shades of Grey, repeated the same feats. In 2015, Tesfaye issued \"The Hills,\" a booming ballad, and \"Can't Feel My Face,\" a disco-funk throwback, as the first two singles from Chapter III. The former cracked the Hot 100 Top 20, while the latter reached the chart's Top 10. ~ Andy Kellman","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/8485_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"8389","name":"Infected Mushroom","bio":"Infected Mushroom is an electronic music group. Originally formed as a duo by Erez Aizen (also known as I.Zen) and Amit Duvdevani (also known as Duvdev), in Haifa, Israel. Both currently reside in Los Angeles.Infected Mushroom is known for their consistent sonic evolution exemplified by the following albums: \"The Gathering\" (1999), \"Classical Mushroom\" (2000), \"B.P. Empire\" (2001), \"Converting Vegetarians\" (2003), \"IM the Supervisor\" (2004), \"Vicious Delicious\" (2007), \"Legend of the Black Shawarma\" (2009), \"Army of Mushrooms\" (2012)' and \"Converting Vegetarians II\" (2015)'Their live shows feature guitars, live drums and vocals, with a multimedia backdrop.In 1998, Aizen and Duvdevani began playing together. At first they released a few tracks as \"Shidapu & Duvdev\". These tracks were 'happier' and on the simpler side of trance. Later on, they formed the duo \"Infected Mushroom\" and started working on their first album. The name \"Infected Mushroom\" was taken, without permission, from a disbanded (1989 to 1993) punk rock band of that name also of Israeli origin, which Duvdevani knew and saw perform at a concert in Israel.1999's \"The Gathering\" was the breakthrough debut album for \"Infected Mushroom\". The album featured a dark, rhythmic atmosphere exemplified in the song \"Psycho\", which gathered much acclaim and popularity. This album was one of the first albums to bring Israeli psy-trance to more 'mainstream' audiences, and contributed to the gradually growing popularity of the genre world-wide. The following year, the duo released one of their most well known albums, also being one of the most well known albums in the genre today, \"Classical Mushroom\". The album showcased a track often cited as their most popular track, \"Bust A Move\". This album is commonly referred to as the best example of the group's efforts.\"Infected Mushroom's\" evolving style has also had its share of critics. 2001's \"B.P. Empire\" was well-received by many fans and critics alike. Especially renowned is the musical epic \"Dancing With Kadafi\"; segueing numerous styles of music, most notably through the use of strong middle-eastern style melodies and a classical piece halfway through (which showcased Erez and Amit's piano and violin skills). However, the album was not as popular with mainstream audiences when compared with earlier releases, primarily due to the less accessible melodies in most of the tracks. The album was also seen as a break away from the more traditional styles of psy-trance by many psy-trance purists, who felt that the new territories explored went beyond the bounds of psy-trance but not necessarily in a progressive sense.The group's most controversial album proved to be \"Converting Vegetarians\" (2003) which featured 2 discs (also known as 'sides'). The first of the 2 CDs is the inoffensive Trance side, which contains mostly trance-like dancefloor material. The Trance Side is a logical progression of their earlier work (although it is cited by some as less imaginative than their earlier work). The 2nd CD is entitled The Other Side, and it contains mostly genre-bending experimental music - ranging from the R&B inspired title track \"Converting Vegetarians\" (which was the first true display of Duvdev's characteristic voice) to the more down-tempo laid-back \"Elation Station\", and also from the electro-pop tracks \"Blink\" and \"Illuminaughty\" (with vocals by the well-known UK psytrance vocalist Michele Adamson) to the short and experimental \"Shakawkaw\" (later expanded to a full length track). The album also contained the track \"Ballerium\", which was originally recorded as a soundtrack to an up-and-coming internet game and later scrapped by the game designers. The remainder of the CD went on to reveal other musical stylings, including \"I Wish\", lead by a carefully vocoded vocal line.The release of \"IM The Supervisor\" in 2004 (often incorrectly referred to as \"I'm the Supervisor\"), further surprised listeners with yet another mix of psy-trance with other musical genres. The album was criticized as being too \"commercial\" by many fans, but became \"Infected Mushroom's\" best selling album up to that time.Guitarists Tommy Cunningham and Erez Netz joined in 2004 - Tom plays with \"Infected Mushroom\" in the United States, while Erez Netz plays the rest of their gigs. Netz is a famous guitarist from Israel, and he opens their live shows with some electric guitar exhibition - playing with his mouth. In December of that year, \"Infected Mushroom\" moved from their base in Haifa to a new studio in Los Angeles, California.As of 2007, \"Infected Mushroom\" have also brought in Brazilian percussionist Rogerio Jardim to play drums and percussion during their shows. Also that year, Infected Mushroom rose to #9 in the influential DJmag Top 100 DJs poll, where they were the highest placed psytrance DJs. This was the first time the category had been created, reflecting psytrance's rising popularity around the world and the pioneering role Infected Mushroom have played in this.2007 was also the year of \"Vicious Delicious\", possibly the most diverse album up to that point. The album begins with \"Becomig Insane\", an intense Spanish-guitar-led number, followed by \"Artillery\", a hip-hop track with vocal contributions by a guest artist. This divergence in genre in just the first two tracks of the album is a clear ultimatum for the critics to 'get with the programme'. Other tracks on the album also feature guest vocalists, along with the guitars and percussion of the newly-inducted Infected Mushrooms.The much-anticipated 2009 album bore the title \"Legend of the Black Shawarma\" and featured remixes of \"The Doors\" classic \"Riders On The Storm\" and the evergreen Mushrooms number \"Bust a Move\", which is noticeably enriched by the DJs' well-matured skills. According to Duvdev, the title of the album is taken from a joke shared with an Australian friend who was describing his interest in having an up-close-and-personal experience in a shark cage. Duvdev's reported response was that the friend would look to the shark like a 'black shawarma', an enticing Middle-Eastern delicacy.Infected Mushroom are currently using Cubase 6 on custom built PC'sDiscographyAlbumsThe Gathering (1999) Classical Mushroom (2000) B.P.Empire (2001) Converting Vegetarians (2003) IM the Supervisor (2004) Vicious Delicious (2007) Legend of the Black Shawarma (2009) Army of Mushrooms (2012) Friends on Mushrooms (2015) Converting Vegetarians II (2015) Singles\/EPsIntelligate \/ Small Moves (1999) Bust a Move (2001) Classical Mushroom EP (2001) B.P.

{"key":"17967","name":"Manu Chao","bio":"Manu Chao (\u22c6 21 June 1961 in Paris, France) is a Frensh\/Spanish rock, reggae, punk and ska artist; well-known at Paris alternative music scene before his international success with the band Mano Negra (active 1988-95). Well-known songs are 'Me Gustas Tu', 'Bongo Bong', 'Clandestino', 'Mr Bobby', and 'Je Ne'taime Plus'. Manu is one of the world's largest selling artists, but is less known in the English-speaking world. Much of his lyrics are about global political and social issues, but also about love, world's lifestyles, and music.- - -Manu Chao (born Jos\u00e9-Manuel Thomas Arthur Chao on 21 June 1961 in Paris, France) is a singer of French and Spanish (Basque, Galician) origin.Heavily influenced by the UK rock scene, particularly The Clash, The Jam and Dr. Feelgood, Chao and other musicians formed the Spanish\/English rockabilly group Hot Pants in the mid-1980s. The group released a demo entitled \"Mala Vida\" in 1984, which received plenty of local critical praise but otherwise gained them little attention. By the time the group released their first album in 1986 the Parisian alternative music scene had taken flight, and Manu, his brother Antoine Chao, and friends such as Alain from Les Wampas formed Los Carayos to incorporate this sound with the rockabilly and punk styles of Hot Pants. Los Carayos remained a side project of the artists for eight years, releasing three albums in the first two years followed by a final album in 1994.Manu Chao had been a well-known member of the Parisian alternative music scene, in bands such as Hot Pants and Los Carayos. In 1987, Chao, his brother Antoine Chao and their cousin Santiago Casariego founded the band Mano Negra, which met with success in France first with the hit single Mala Vida and then Mexico, Central and South America, where the band toured. The band split in 1995.Chao sings in French, Spanish, Arabic, Galician, Portuguese, English, Italian, and Wolof, sometimes mixing them in the same song. He is one of the world's largest selling artists, but is less known in the English-speaking world.Chao's music has many influences: rock, French chanson, Spanish-American Salsa, Reggae, Ska and Algerian rai. These influences were obtained from immigrants in France, his Iberian roots and his travels in Latin America following the disbanding of Mano Negra. Many of Chao's lyrics are about political issues (e.g., immigration, global social justice, conflict, and a strongly leftist critique of exploitative economic globalization) but they are also about love, lifestyles in different parts of the world, and music itself, which is hopeful for the future and at the same time dramatic. Chao is openly critical of the Bush administration in the US. He has many followers among the European left and the anti-globalization movement.The influence of Manu Chao in Latin Rock or \"Rock en Espa\u00f1ol\" was crucial not only for the development and rise of new Latin bands that tried to emulate his eclectic style, but also for the self-knowledge of Latin America as a united culture. After the Latin America tour and travels, Manu Chao lyrics were more often written in Spanish than were the Mano Negra lyrics. His songs also took the lyrics or chords of some popular tunes like \"El preso\" from \"Fruko y Sus Tesos\" (in \"Desaparecido\") or \"La Verdolaga\" a traditional Colombian cumbia (in \"Por el Suelo\").Manu Chao's music does not follow a logical textual narrative, but in its eclectic construction it invokes a deeper understanding of its subject than any literal form could. He sings songs about the people of the streets, the outer provinces, and the marginalised; he sings with the forgotten and uncounted billions, the underclass, and in so doing, he speaks about the fragility of human kind. His music is a bridge, exploring the common ground and means of mutual understanding that are available to us, exponating the idea that beyond superfluous differences in cultural identity, we are all the same.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/17967_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

His IDM and hip-hop influenced beat collages unfold like individual short stories, their layered tones playing into your emotions. The thud of bass pulses throughout his tracks, a steady stream of heartbeats that rise in and fall reaction to the excitement, the trepidation and the moments of calm reflection set by the marriage of vocal samples and experimental beatmaking. Listened to in succession, Howard\u2019s material is a collection of individual moods, bound into a volume that could easily be titled, What It Feels Like To Be A Human.*In a world in which upstart DiY talent is flooding the gates of electronic music, a few recent voices have been so strong as to be startling. Lapalux - AKA 25-year-old Stuart Howard - is certainly one such. As singular as a brilliant artist always should be, his instinctive understanding of the atmospheric power of texture grips the ear immediately on listening. 'Nostalchic' is his debut album, mission statement, and the climax of many years of studying his craft. The amalgam of words that make the title is aptly, and perhaps knowingly chosen. The album evokes nostalgia without ever sounding nostalgic, and Howard may have had his tongue in his chic when he added the second half of the title. The album is his most focused document to date, adding his beloved R&B and soul into elements of house and hip hop, all with the trademark Lapalux finish; infectious, lopsided swing and achingly deep texture.*12\/19\/2013 update","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/98386_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"598","name":"Santigold","bio":"Santigold (born Santi White on September 25, 1976) is a musician, songwriter and producer from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA who formerly went under the stage name Santogold. She is perhaps best known for the song L.E.S. Artistes which became a hit in the UK and on American alternative radio. In February 2009, she officially changed her stage name to Santigold as a result of infomercial jeweller Santo Gold threatening legal action against White and her label Downtown Records.White was lead singer of the Philadelphia-based punk rock band Stiffed, but while in the band, she was offered a solo contract. Working with fellow Stiffed member John Hill as co-producer, she recorded her debut album, Santogold, which was released in April 2008. Upon the change of her stage name, her label Downtown Records issued this press release:\"Change the graffiti on the bathroom wall, get your tattoo fixed, get your T-shirt airbrushed and change the name on your year-end list: Santogold is now Santigold. She's not telling you why, that's just how it is.\"Her most recent album \"Master of My Make-Believe\" was released on 23 April 2012.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/598_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}
