Ghostwriting Bedroom Producers J-Punch And Dave Moonshine Scientifically 'Engineer' A New Form Of Music Designed To Please All Audiences
Scientists warn: Exposure to new forms of music may induce feelings of euphoria.
FULL LENGTH ALBUM, 'STICK FIGURE GUY' TO BE RELEASED OCTOBER 1, 2010.
Washington, DC. Sept. 27, 2010 /iFastFwd/ - Veteran House Music Producer J-Punch is constantly re-inventing what it is to re-invent one's self. After several years of thriving in the underground dance music community, having released multiple songs on various dance music record labels [System Recordings, Global Underground], and having spearheaded one of Washington D.C.'s most successful weekly house music events, Pulse, for over 100 weeks, J-Punch has enlisted the aid of his ghostly writing partner, Dave Moonshine and set out to scientifically engineer a new genre of music designed to please all audiences. Despite their controversial decision not to quit their day jobs, the project recently exceeded all their expectations after a late night engineering accident reduced both men to nothing but fuzzy bits of twisted wire. It was in their new stick figure forms that they finally had their musical epiphany.
They lovingly refer to their creation as "alt-tempo," or "down-rock."
In an effort to inspire interest in their project within the law enforcement community, rather than promoting their new album in the traditional “successful” way, J-Punch and Dave Moonshine have been mailing unmarked envelopes to various radio stations and music blogs with nothing enclosed except eerie photographs of stick figures and an unmarked compact discs.
The forthcoming 'Stick Figure Guy' album includes the singles 'Hours Late' and 'We Had It All.'
As described on the artists’ website, www.jpunch.com, 'Hours Late' is an "ironic homage to modern muses recorded in the hopes that it may ease the suffering of those destined to wait indefinitely for certain disappointment."
'We Had It All,' combines a chill-out sound-scape, analog beats, and a heavily auto-tuned vocal, with a chorus that is both explicit and ironic.
Stick Figure Guy' will be available everywhere digital albums are sold, on October 1, 2010.

Grammy Award Winning Producer Unleashes Latest Single, Announces New Release Date For You Need This Music
Originally scheduled for an October 12th release, Nottz and his label Raw Koncept Media Group have announced a new release date for the album, October 26th. While his fans eagerly await You Need This Music, the Grammy winning producer/rapper is releasing a new single to appease fans' appetite over the extended wait. For the latest single, "Blast That," Nottz enlists the help of fellow acclaimed producer/rapper Black Milk, whose own project Album Of The Year is garnering a swell of buzz itself.
"Turn up this real hip-hop and turn that wackness down," says Nottz on the message behind his latest single, a track with Brash guitar licks laced over top the beat's heavy, trunk rattling drums. Collaborating with the aforementioned Black Milk proved to be a wise choice, as the track's staccato feel matches perfectly with Black's unique flow, while showcasing both as artists just as dangerous behind the mic as behind the boards. "I felt like Black Milk was the right person for the job for a real 'bring the boom bap back' type record. Something for the new generation to hear," remarks Nottz. Given the chemistry between the two – it took Black Milk only a day to write and record his verse for the song – it sounds like the two may be onto something.
Nottz' You Need This Music will be available October 26, 2010 via Raw Koncept Media Group.
Since 1998, some of Virginia-born Nottz' biggest records to date include, Snoop Dogg Ft R.Kelly "That's That," Kanye West Ft Lil Wayne "Barry Bonds," and Scarface Ft Trey Songz "Girl You Know." Adding to those credits, he has collaborated with artists such as Notorious B.I.G, Swizz Beats, The Game, 50 Cent, Dwele, and Murs just to name a few. These past few years he has built fan base and earned his stripes as a respected and talented artist and, this October 2010, he is set to release his self-produced debut, You Need This Music. All of Nottz' hard work has been, in his words, "to take over the world one day with my sound.
