DarWin Releases Debut Concept Album “Origin Of Species” Internationally Featuring Drum Legend Simon Phillips

Featuring Simon Phillips, Matt Bissonette, Greg Howe, Jeff Babko, Dennis Hamm & others!

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, February 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “We Have 12 years to Limit Climate Change Catastrophe” Warns the United Nations IPCC

“Earth’s Carbon Dioxide Levels are Likely the Highest They’ve been in 15 Million Years” University of Texas at Austin, Jackson School of Geosciences

“Technologies built for our survival,
Back on Earth made us a dominant rival.
Working as one, we conquered all nations,
All networks now under our communications.
Resources rationed, ideas controlled,
An intelligent regime to save our souls.
Children of the future,
Return to the light,
Saving our Planet from our self-inflicted plight.”
— DarWin, For Humanity

“The Revolution will come in waves.”— DarWin, Artificial

Welcome to the near-future: the world of DarWin. An intricate musical fantasy concept that launched in November 2018 in the UK only with the ambitious single release of “Escape The Maze,” followed by the full length album “Origin Of Species.”

The album is now available internationally on all major digital distribution platforms, with an epic cinematic video of “Escape the Maze” available on YouTube, Facebook and iTunes. More DarWin videos can be found on YouTube and Facebook.

Who is DarWin?: An Introduction to the “Escape the Maze” video saga.

It’s roughly ten years from now into the future, 2028. An exhausted ecology, and global conflicts, have led to a huge upheaval of the world order, straining and diminishing human populations. The lives of everyday people and families have been turned upside down by the intense ecological pressures related to climate change. No longer just a theory discussed by scientists and politicians, climate change is wreaking havoc on the world. Chaos and confusion reign as fighting for basic resources continuously escalates. “Day Zero” has occurred, when nuclear attacks punctuated what had for many years been a civility between nations and people. As Earth rejects life, those of us who remain struggle to survive.

“Escape The Maze” is the first installment in an evolving saga that addresses the challenges of mankind in our coming era. It depicts the role of a changing planet, and the potential, as well as limitations, of technology to help solve mankind’s greatest challenges. The story of “Origin Of Species” is represented through music, graphic storytelling and videos.

A complex project that’s eschews the hollow immediacy of much contemporary art. A narrative that demands attention and imagination. With music sweeping in scope, at times evoking hard rock virtuoso shredding, alongside grand orchestral compositions, warm harmonies and soaring choruses.

The music seeks to capture the listener in the spirit of the greatest concept albums that have helped to define the history of rock. Heavy riffs and killer grooves lead way to delicate ensembles, only to pick up the pace again with searing guitar solos. The genre is decisively Prog Rock, but DarWin begs to be appreciated by a large global audience of music enthusiasts. Key tracks to discover the narrative include: For Humanity, Walk Away from Earth, the Last Chance and Artificial. Emotionally powerful songs for a wide audience include One Horizon, Cosmic Rays, and Forever.

It’s time to enter the saga. It’s time to join DarWin on his journey…

The “Origin Of Species” album features legendary drummer and producer Simon Phillips, who, in addition to playing drums, percussion and keyboards, also engineered, mixed and drove the production on the album. Veteran bass player and singer Matt Bissonette performed a rich array of lead and background vocals and bass. DarWin himself drove the songwriting and conceptual vision while playing various guitars.

The album features guest performances from the likes of Jeff Babko (keyboards and quartet arrangements), Greg Howe (blazing lead guitar solos), Dennis Hamm (keyboards), Ernst Tibbs (bass), Katisse Buckingham (Flute, Soprano Sax), Samuel Sim and Peter Nickalls (orchestral and quartet arrangements), The Origin of Species Quartet (Los Angeles), The Reykjavik String Quartet (Iceland), and The Chamber Orchestra Of London (Conductor Matt Dunkley)

The album was recorded at Simon Phillip’s Phantom Recordings, Sherman Oaks, CA, with additional recording at Abbey Road Studios (Studio 2, the “Beatles Room”), London, United Kingdom, Sundlaugin Studio in Reykjavik, Iceland, The Doghouse, Woodland Hills, CA, Rose Lane Studios, Carpenteria, CA, and Megatrax, Ventura, CA.

The album was produced by DarWin and Simon Phillips. They are continuing to work on new music together at an undisclosed location. The saga will continue…

MUSIC MAN ON THE MOVE – JOHN “THE WIZARD” STEPANIAN LAUNCHES ‘EL DIABLITO’ LABEL

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you were an established Latin or R&B artist during the 1980’s & 90’s, you may have heard the tales of “The Wizard”.

With impeccable timing and a trained ear that hears the slightest imperfection, “The Wizard” was a staple in many Grammy nominated and winning recording sessions in both Latin & R&B music of the times. Industry insiders speculated that after his abrupt disappearance from the music scene that he may venture into other industry fields such as Film and Television, and they were right.

With the uncanny ability to take "every-day normal" and making it extraordinary, John “The Wizard” Stepanian has been at the helm of The New York Performing Arts Academy (NYPAA). "TimeOut Magazine" lists his organization as one of the top 10 Performing Arts academies in New York, and rightfully so. "The Wizard" has been assisting many aspiring performers transform into working industry professionals such as Hudson Yang, star of the ABC hit show "Fresh Off The Boat", Jordan Vergara who plays a young Emilio Estevez on Broadway's "On Your Feet!" and many more.

The Wizard never lost his touch and now he struck his deal. NYPAA founder John “The Wizard” Stepanian is calling his new venture "El Diablito Records".

El Diablito Records will be distributed through UMG/Interscope Distribution channels.

“This is an exciting new venture on a scale that I only dreamed of, real music is ready to make a comeback!” Stepanian said.

Music industry insiders have been speculating about Stepanian's next move ever since rumors began circulating that he had been spotted at various recording studios throughout New York City.

Most of El Diablito Records starting roster will be new acts, none so far are household names. El Diablito Records’ first release – a new Latin duo called ‘Las 2 AM’ – is scheduled to come out in April 2019. El Diablito Records will be conducting a citywide search for upcoming Latin artists.

El Diablito Records will eventually set up shop on Fifth Avenue at The Empire State Building.

Submit your music for House Party

Inviting all independent artists to submit their music for the House Party video game and a chance to win cash prizes.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, February 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eek! Games today announced an exciting new competition for all independent musicians to enter their music, to be featured in its House Party Game on PC.
Eek! is inviting all unsigned artists to enter for this unique opportunity to have their music playing in the House Party game, which already has hundreds of thousands of players, with many millions more enjoying streams of the game on YouTube.

Entrants will be able to submit their instrumental soundtracks (or with limited vocals) by nominating themselves through Twitter – @EekGamesLLC, with a link to their music. Following four weeks of nominations and submissions, the Eek! Games team will select the top 40 compositions across 4 music genres (EDM, Chill Beats, Hip Hop beats and Pop). Once the Top-40 list is chosen by the Eek! Team, the songs will be voted upon by the House Party fans and players, who will then help select the final 5 winners.

Eek! Games will award the most voted artist a prize of $1,000 in cash, and $250 each for four runner-ups. The winners music composition will be played throughout the House Party game for players’ enjoyment and to enhance the game experience.

Bobby Ricci, the CEO and Founder of Eek! Games, " It’s time for HOUSE PARTY’s soundtrack to expand past just our one song.

Musicians be warned though, House Party is not your mother’s sim game. It’s quite risqué in nature and touches on topics of debauchery, sex and comedic fun between player and the zany, therapy-needing cast. House Party is this generational “American Pie™” meets “Porky’s™”, but it’s executed in a smart game about choices, which doesn't insult your intelligence. It's fun for males and females, alike, delivering a unique gameplay mechanic through an advanced AI system whereby the player’s every choice influences the reaction and outcome of the game.
The players and community acknowledging it as”One of the most fun dating/hookup sims.”
