Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new re-mastered four-disc deluxe expanded boxed set limited edition (comprising 3 CDs and a DVD) of AXE VICTIM the legendary 1974 debut album by BE BOP DELUXE.

Recorded in the Spring of 1974 at several studios in London, AXE VICTIM was released by EMI’s Harvest label in June 1974 to much critical praise and introduced Be Bop Deluxe to the record buying public. The album featured the band’s first line-up of BILL NELSON (vocals, lead guitar, acoustic guitar, piano), IAN PARKIN (rhythm & acoustic guitars, organ), ROB BRYAN (bass guitar, vocals) and NICHOLAS CHATTERTON-DEW (drums).

AXE VICTIM was a fine debut and was championed by DJ John Peel (who had been an advocate of Bill Nelson’s work since the release of the rudimentary self-released album “Northern Dream” in 1971) as one of his favourite releases of 1974. Although Bill Nelson was still finding his creative feet, AXE VICTIM featured some fine material including the classic ‘Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape’, along with other fine material such as ‘Night Creatures’, ‘Third Floor Heaven’ (which featured Babe Ruth vocalist Jenny Haan guesting), ‘Jets at Dawn’ and the superb ‘Darkness (L’Immoraliste)’.

This expanded reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an additional 41 bonus tracks drawn from stunning new 5.1 surround sound & stereo mixes of the album from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler, along with two complete BBC Radio One sessions from November 1973 and May 1974 (including the previously unreleased “lost” John Peel session from November 1973), both sides of the rare Smile Records single ‘Teenage Archangel’ b/w ‘Jets at Dawn’ released by the band in 1973 prior to being signed to EMI. Also included is the complete previously unreleased Be Bop Deluxe audition session for Decca Records from December 1973 (mixed from the original 16 track tapes by Stephen W Tayler) & previously unreleased out-takes from the original album sessions.

Another highlight of this limited-edition boxed set is the lavishly illustrated 68-page book with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. Additionally, the set includes a facsimile Record Store poster and postcards. This special deluxe limited edition boxed set of AXE VICTIM is a fitting celebration of a wonderful debut album and a tribute to the creative vision of Bill Nelson.

“Revenge Prank” Actor Embraces the Era of Getting Even

NEW YORK, NY, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Under the setting sun just outside the Holland Tunnel in lower Manhattan, actor Damian Muziani is not lost on the irony; The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has made traffic nearly non-existent at times in the Big Apple, but ten stories up, his blue tuxedo-clad image graces a sixty foot-wide billboard ad, teasing rush-hour commuters about their bumper-to-bumper apartment space for a self-storage facility. "Dichotomy is dominating the year 2020 in so many ways," says the busy performer and broadcaster. "It seems like nobody is in the mood to laugh, and yet these pranks are so much fun to watch!"

The pranks in question form a brand new reality show entitled Revenge Prank with DJ Pauly D and Vinny, a 30 minute put-on that takes elements of past hits like Punked and What Would You Do and adds a vital twist: It's payback time for pranksters who went too far in the past and their one-time victims are now doling out the punishment. Muziani is a recurring talent on the show, playing dual roles, beginning this Thursday Night at 9:30 EDT. His challenge is not only to deliver a believable character, but to improvise his way out of a jam if things go off the rails (spoiler alert: they do). "To best enjoy watching this TV show you should imagine it like you're going to see a Broadway play, and one of the lead actors on stage was never given a copy of the script beforehand but everyone else is off-book. Eventually, chaos ensues."

It turns out the format is a perfect fit for Muziani. “I’ve always been a class clown and improv artist and using these skills to hone an acting performance in a slapdash environment is awesome. You have only a day or two to prepare alongside a small cast and crew and then you’ve got exactly one chance to pull it off. If you screw up and break character or fail to keep the victim guessing, then you’ve just wasted a fortune in production time and dollars. And of course, there's an element of real danger involved as well." Muziani plays an angry Russian gangster in the prank, so perhaps the possibility of danger goes with the territory.

The show's new wrinkle to a popular theme has struck gold with viewers right off the bat. The premiere episode of Revenge Prank pulled a .22 rating among adults 18-49, making it the third-most watched non-news cable show in America on Thursday Night.

Every week, hosts (and Jersey Shore alums) Pauly Delvecchio and Vinny Guadagnino team up with one victim each to compete for bragging rights over who pulled off the best prank. Wild N’ Out co-host Justina Valentine is also on hand in several episodes to help dish out the vengeance.

Elsewhere, Muziani has also been charting the recent meteoric rise of writer-comedienne Sarah Cooper, made super-famous nearly overnight as the star of TikTok videos lip-synced to Donald Trump's actual voice in which she performs and edits. Cooper and Muziani co-starred in a successful string of commercials for a banking institution several years ago. "I'm so happy for Sarah," said Muziani, "I've been a huge fan of hers since 9 years ago when we were clowning around in TV commercials together, and it's so reassuring to see very hard work in this business finally paying off."

Later this summer, things heat up even more for Muziani. He will appear as a co-star in a TV pilot entitled Squid Ink which has been accepted into the Portland Comedy Film and Pilot Light TV festivals, and in August will be co-starring in a short two-hander opposite Ebony Obsidian (Sistas, If Beale Street Could Talk) in Such a Deal, directed by Dionna McMillian.

Diamonds & Whiskey Sign With Playroom Management

Diamonds & Whiskey lead singer Jennifer Webb sings on-stage.

Diamonds & Whiskey’s Jennifer Webb.

Country rock band joins award-winning Charlotte-Based Team

With so many musicians pivoting plans and goals for 2021, it’s going to be a challenge. Jenny doesn’t back down from challenges, nor do I.”

— Eddie Z

CHARLOTTE, N.C., UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Playroom Management is pleased to announce the signing of country rock band Diamonds & Whiskey for management representation. Combining sounds of the electric violin, swampy undertones and modern country rock riffs, Diamonds & Whiskey have carved out a clear path with keen storytelling lyrics and powerhouse harmonies.

Diamonds & Whiskey is led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Webb. Her voice, a combination of parlor accoutrements and refined beauty, ranges from rebellious in the “Heartbreak Queen” to fragile in “Wasted on Love” to haunting in “25 to Life”. In “Muddy Water,” a celebrated international hit, Webb’s oozing confidence glides along the slide guitar.

Playroom Management Principal Eddie Z is excited to help the group accomplish its goals. Diamonds & Whiskey have garnered several Carolina Country Music Awards, as well as radio play for “Muddy Water” in New Zealand, Australia, Europe and several states. Z’s priority is to continue the momentum and secure bigger opportunities.

“I’ve known Eddie Z for few years now and I’ve always admired how he handles business and what he’s been able to accomplish,” Webb said. “There’s a line in ‘Muddy Water’ that says, ‘I can see through muddy water.’ I think in the music business it’s important to seek out a team that believes in you as much as or more than you believe in yourself. Eddie and Playroom Management make things clear; you get exactly what’s promised with him. This is the next piece in the puzzle for us.”

“We’re very excited to add Diamonds & Whiskey to our management roster,” Z said. With so many musicians pivoting plans and goals for 2021, it’s going to be a challenge. Jenny doesn’t back down from challenges, nor do I.”

HIP Video Promo presents: Ethan Gold's music video "Our Love Is Beautiful" is a letter to humanity

Once again, Ethan Gold has written directly to the moment, and, amid unprecedented turmoil, he's given us a song to soothe souls.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — If there's a silver lining to a global crisis, it's that it teaches us all that our problems aren't so different from those of our neighbors. In 2020, everybody on the planet confronts the same dangers: the health emergency, growing inequality, habitat destruction and ecological collapse, and a terrible, regrettable scarcity of love. On the late 2019 single "Never Met a World Like You," songwriter Ethan Gold met the challenge of climate change with a message, pairing the song with a video that showcased the Earth's biosphere in all its gorgeous fragility. Two seasons later, he's back with another clip, and another letter sent to humanity. "Our Love Is Beautiful" asks us to believe in the power of empathy – and to believe in each other, too.

Ethan Gold premiered "Never Met a World Like You" at the climate strikes in Los Angeles, which was an appropriate setting for the sentiment. "Our Love Is Beautiful" is every bit as anthemic – and every bit as necessary. Once again, Ethan Gold has written directly to the moment, and, amid unprecedented turmoil, he's given us a song to soothe souls.

For many years, listeners were deprived of Gold's guidance: a head injury he suffered in the early teens derailed a promising career. Yet he's overcome some formidable obstacles, regained his voice, his mission, and his sense of self-possession, and he's coming back strong. In 2018, he scored The Song of Sway Lake, the second full-length film from his brother (and sometimes bandmate) Ari Gold. In 2019, he mounted the barricades and sang for a better, healthier planet. Now, he's preparing to release Earth City, a double album designed to demonstrate his songwriting flexibility, renewed energy, and the breadth of his vision. The aching "Our Love Is Beautiful" is a powerful example of just how much passion Ethan Gold can summon on behalf of the causes that move him.

That passion is not his alone. In the clip for "Our Love Is Beautiful," fans from around the globe sing Gold's words of healing and reconciliation, one at a time, captured in their home countries, and brought together in a mesmerizing sequence through the magic of telecommunications. Faces young and old, some poised, some beleaguered, some pretty, some weathered, some painted: they all appear in the center of the frame, and they all request radical compassion and unity in the face of unprecedented global struggles.

Upgrade your music experiences with new, in-ear anti-distortion device

Calmer is proving a hit with producers and musicians

Calmer® from Flare Audio enables wearers to naturally ‘upgrade’ their ears.

Calmer can upgrade a standard pair of headphones into an audiophile experience, and take a high end set to another level entirely.”

— Flare CEO, Davies Roberts.

SUSSEX, UK, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A clever new product from British audio innovators Flare Audio, enables people to upgrade their current music set up and all listening experiences, by wearing a small, non-electric in ear device.

Launched June 25th, Calmer® enables wearers to naturally ‘upgrade’ their ears. Moulded from soft-touch flexible silicone, it features a unique technology that minimises distortion in the ear, greatly improving the audio quality we hear in any situation. Calmer can be worn under headphones, for home HiFi listening, in the car, or at concerts; promising to deliver a clearer sound and increased detail.

“Calmer can upgrade a standard pair of headphones into an audiophile experience, and take a high end set to another level entirely,” explains Flare CEO, Davies Roberts. “It enables you to upgrade your current audio set up without spending a fortune to replace it.”

Flare has long identified that audio distortion has a detrimental effect on sound, reducing clarity and detail in the music we hear. Having managed to dramatically minimise distortion in its award-winning range of earphones, Flare turned its attention to the human ear itself.

Our ears have evolved to alert us to danger by adding over 20dB of mid-range resonance, which destroys our ability to hear high definition sound or relax in our modern noisy world. This is known as HRTF (Head Related Transfer Function). While experts say this response was a vital part of our evolution to alert us to the slightest sound or threat, it is an overactive mechanism in today’s modern world where we no longer need to be alert to the snap of a twig, and this added resonance is loading us with unnecessary auditory stress.

Cue Flare’s mission to reduce this resonance and ‘upgrade’ our ears. Calmer is a one size fits all design and does not affect the characteristics (or colouration) of music, it simply diminishes distortion (unwanted noise) from our ears that would otherwise be compromising the sound.

What’s also exciting is that Calmer has been found to reduce stress, by reducing these distortions that would usually trigger the human ‘fight or flight’ response. When wearing them, every day sounds that would normally be uncomfortable or trigger an alert response, such as tube announcements, traffic sirens or phones ringing, suddenly seem less shrill, enabling wearers to feel calmer.

With the World Health Organisation publishing in (2018) that unpleasant city noise contributes to raised stress levels, a multitude of health issues and even increased risk of premature death, this is a pretty incredible bonus feature which could prove hugely beneficial for the nation’s health, as well as our musical enjoyment. Click here for more information on the health benefits of Calmer.

How Calmer Works
Calmer simply changes the way sound is delivered into our ears. It targets resonance by using a tiny waveguide that removes the effect of the Concha (the small shell shape that connects to our ear canal which normally resonates mid and high frequency sounds). Calmer receives sound and guides it accurately into our ears, without losing energy. By reducing this resonance, mid frequency sounds have none of their normal painful aspects, and you will hear more detail in your headphones.

Independent testing by the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), University of Southampton, confirm Flare’s findings. “We conducted a range of tests on Calmer and found it to significantly reduce sound levels at middle to high frequencies (2 kHz – 8 kHz). This successfully meets Flare’s design objective,” says Gergely Orosz of the ISVR.

Flare Audio’s ethos is focused around audio innovation. Its products include award winning earphones and high-end speakers, as well sleeping aids and its patented aluminium and titanium ear protectors.

Calmer: RRP: £19.99 / US $24.99 / Euro €22.99

Christian artist, Sarai Korpacz releases a new single one year after her debut album

Sarai Korpacz - New Single "Hiding Place"

Sarai Korpacz – New Single “Hiding Place”

The popular contemporary gospel artist will be releasing her new single, ‘Hiding Place’ early next month.

Hiding Place will share a story, a feeling and an emotion of the renewed awakening one can have with the Christian faith. I’ve always made my faith my top priority, my music is a reflection of that”

— Sarai Korpacz, Christian Music Singer-Song Writer

NEW YORK, NY, US, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New York-based Christian singer and songwriter, Sarai Korpacz will soon release a new gospel single on her birthday on the 4th of July. This comes only one year after she released her debut album, It’s Time To Praise The Lord in July 2019. Korpacz has now become a voice of hope, and an inspiration for people during times of adversity.

The artist currently lives with her husband and their two children in New York. Her latest single will be a melodic enchantment of hope and finding strength in the Lord during challenging times. After her injury in 2018, the artist found hope in gospel music thus bringing her closer in her relationship with God. “Everything happens for a reason, how we react can determine our destiny” shares Korpacz.

The talented gospel artist found inspiration in Christian music, giving her the strength to push through challenging times. Two years later, and pain-free, she has been sharing her musical talents with thousands of listeners around the world through various social media platforms. Her positive music brings a clear message, worshipping God in spirit and truth.

Her strong and passionate relationship with God was already well-established when Korpacz was only six-years-old. Today, a dual citizen of Nigeria and the U.S. with a Masters in American Business Law from New York Law School, she has shifted her focus from the corporate world to give people inspiration and hope.

“Hiding Place will share a story, a feeling and an emotion of the renewed awakening one can have with the Christian faith. In my years, I’ve always made my faith my top priority, my music is a reflection of that, but incorporated in a way for everyone to enjoy it,” tells the artist.

A snippet of ‘Hiding Place’ which can be found on her website is a delightful connection between the listener and God. Korpacz uses her talents to not only tell people but show them that during challenging times, one can always find hope in God. As the global pandemic has left millions with uncertainty, stories such as that of Korpacz will show many that there is a way forward during dismal times.

Korpacz is a true embodiment of gospel talent, her soft melodies, cheerful music, and upbeat enthusiasm can easily fill the room with positive energy. American gospel music has always been a popular genre for millions of listeners, and in recent times, the genre has seen an up-rise in younger and more dynamic talent. Until now, there has been a long list of extremely talented singers and songwriters who’ve laid the foundation for the contemporary music scene in America.

“Whatever it may be that happens in your life, everything has an explanation. The Lord has a plan for everything in our lives. The injury in 2018 made it possible for me to realize that without faith and guidance any challenge in my life will become tiresome. I’ve instilled trust, and hope in everything I do into the Lord, and my music is only a small portion of what I want to share with the world,” she concludes.

Artists such as Israel Houghton, Marvin Sapp, Yolanda Adams, and world-famous singer Mahalia Jackson paved a road with years of success but making it possible for any person to build a deeper connection with their faith through music. Korpacz is a talented spirit that plays on the backdrop of years’ worth of compassion and conviction, entrusting her faith to become the leading force in her family’s life.

Her album, It’s Time To Praise The Lord is currently available on her website, or can be downloaded from CD Baby and their partner sites which include Apple music, Spotify, Tik Tok and Google Music Stores. Be sure to take a listen to Hiding Place, as it releases this July on Apple iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube.

She has been playing her own sets of original songs in Southern California and her home towns on the East Coast for many years.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Amplify Black Voices” is the theme of a new Doritos® television commercial, aired this evening during the BET Awards. The ad features singer-songwriter Luke James and individuals dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement including singer-songwriter Devin Marie (https://devinmariemusic.net).

In May, inspired by the tragic police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the subsequent Black Lives Matter protests, Devin Marie wrote, performed, and posted a new song, “I Can’t Breathe,” on social media. Within a few weeks her heartfelt performance went viral on social media, having garnered almost 900,000 views. View it here on YouTube.

Her shining star rose even further last week when the strong response to Devin Marie and her song attracted the attention of New York based WHTWRKS Inc., marketing and branding strategy agency, who recognized her talent and the powerful message of the song. The timing was perfect—they were producing a Doritos commercial to highlight the brand’s commitment to social justice, and they understood that Devin Marie was deserving of the national exposure the ad would bring. They invited her to be a part of the commercial, which was broadcast during the BET Awards on BET, simulcast on CBS and other ViacomCBS networks, June 28. The commercial can be viewed here.

Devin Marie fans can download the full version of “I Can’t Breathe” online. Consistent with Devin Marie’s commitment to social justice, all proceeds from the song will go to organizations who further that goal.

Who is Devin Marie?
Millions of BET Awards viewers may be wondering, who is this singer-songwriter? While still relatively unknown to music industry execs—and that will surely change—Devin Marie, a Long Islander who recently completed her degree in media studies and music production at Queens College, has been quite busy, touring with a popular Christian Rock/Pop band Pursuing JC, an eight-member Christian rock band, known for its astonishing performances—their talent and professionalism is well beyond what one would expect at such a young age. The band also includes her brother, singer-songwriter Jordan Simpson.

She wrote, arranged, and performed the song “I Can’t Breathe” in May 2020, inspired by the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. After the incident, she read many news articles about what happened and learned who George was as a person. “Then I sat down across the dinner table from my brother who is the most gentle, kind-hearted soul you will ever meet,” she said. “I can’t help but see my brother when I watch the news. After dinner I started pouring my feelings onto paper and let the melody grow into a song. I just needed to release some emotion and it turned into something beautiful.”

Devin Marie is passionate about writing music and hopes to become known, not just as a writer and performer, but also as a voice for those people who struggle to find their way through their own personal issues.

Despite her immense talent, Devin Marie has had to struggle to truly find her voice. “When I first joined Pursuing JC, I had zero self-confidence and I was very new to my faith, so I started right off the bat outside of my comfort zone,” she recalls. “Because of this, I really didn’t have a choice but to either let my fear get the best of me or learn how to channel that and bring it as positive energy into my performances. Over the years I have come to realize that I have the power to impact people so positively through music and now it’s all I want to do.”

Songwriting comes naturally to Devin Marie and she has built a catalog of many original songs, which have impressed the industry veterans with whom she has worked. One of her biggest fans is music professor and executive producer Jim McElwaine, who mentored her at Queens College and has worked with New York recording artists, Broadway theaters and touring ensembles for more than 40 years. “There is no doubt in my mind—she is a major talent,” he said. “Her voice is clear and well founded. Her lyric poetry manages to frame conflict elegantly, and her performing talents are diverse. My advice to all who listen—hold on to your hearts!”

Another fan and mentor is multiple award-winning singer-songwriter/voice teacher and artist mentor, Elza, who is extremely impressed by Devin as an artist and personality. “Devin Marie is a world class artist,” she said. “I’ve had the honor and pleasure of mentoring her and not only is she a compelling artist and the ultimate professional, but she also has a heart of gold! I feel certain she is going to go far!”

Elza’s praise should be heeded—she knows a thing or two about songwriting. She is the first place winner of the International Broadjam Songwriting Competition, the Windrift Canadian Songwriting Contest and finalist in both the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and the Billboard World Song Competition. More than 40 of her original songs have been licensed in TV and film and her song “The Other Side” was the Grand Prize Winner of the International Music Licensing Contest. Elza is in demand as a composer and performer of songs for television and film as well as a sought-after voice teacher/artist mentor.

Devin Marie hopes her “I Can’t Breathe” song facilitates conversations and reflections. “I hope it brings people together, despite how divided we may be, because nothing unites people like music does. I hope it educates people on the reality of our world and that it shows young people that our voices are so powerful—and we need to use them.”
