ALIENS Go Into a DANCE FRENZY as UNCLE ROYS SPACESHIP Releases a NEW SINGLE “A.LIEN D.ANCE M.USIC“ on NOVEMBER 18, 2022 - Across the Earth Everywhere!

The tune is written by and all instruments are played by cosmic musician, UNCLE ROY aka ROY LEONARD HERMAN with the mysterious ARTIE INTELLIGENCE on drums

Europa, a Moon of Jupiter - As the holidays throughout the universe start to kick in, the moods of many worlds become filled with an enormous, high energy, party vibe! Earth is, one of those worlds! Aliens everywhere, connect from galaxy to galaxy, by those emotions through music!  And, every world loves to rock, dance and move to the groove! Therefore, UNCLE ROYS SPACESHIP will be releasing to the cosmos, the NEW SINGLE, “A.LIEN D.ANCE M.USIC”!  

This tune is an uptempo, high energy, dancey, trancey, throbbing party shaker instrumental! Big, bright, energized keyboard rhythms, surrounded by slick, space funky guitar licks, that intertwine and twist together beautifully. The tight, throbbing pulse of the bass and drums, gives the tune that solid groove that makes you want to get up and have a good time! From the beginning till the end of the tune, you get the feeling of velocity and momentum. “A.LIEN D.ANCE M.USIC” is a fun, very lively and spirited song that would fit sweetly into anyone’s holiday playlist and beyond, no matter what planet you’re on!

“A.LIEN D.ANCE M.USIC” is the second single to go live for UNCLE ROYS SPACESHIP. The first single, “THE ALIEN BOOGIE DUB SHUFFLE” was released at the end of September and is a funk and boogie blend of a pumping rhythm section with tasty guitars and keyboards that bounce and groove all the way through the tune!

The new single can be pre-saved at SPOTIFY prior to the release date at this link:

Here’s what Uncle Roy has to say about the creation of, “A.LIEN D.ANCE M.USIC”: “Holiday greetings, Earthlydians! The universe is filled with music and is starting to jump and jive as the holiday season kicks in! From planet to planet and moon to moon, the parties have already started! Now, I wanted to add a little Earthiness to those parties and decided that a fat groove, surrounded by rave-like keyboards and funky spacey guitars would fit perfectly into a happy, party atmosphere on every world! To come to that decision, I needed to do some listening to some of those musical legends from Earth for inspiration first. I went into the music vault on the spaceship and took out some ancient vinyl to spin on the antique stereo system I have on the spacecraft, alongside all the digital gear I have as well. I grabbed Miles Davis ‘Bitches Brew’ and ‘Jack Johnson’ albums, Michael Jackson’s ’Thriller’ album, the Temptations ‘Cloud Nine’ and ‘Psychedelic Shack’ tunes, Tower of Power ‘What is Hip,’ Average White Band ‘Pick Up the Pieces,’ and Weather Report’s ‘Heavy Weather’ album. Once again, the sounds spread throughout the ship, just the way I like it. After a few light years of listening, I was ready to write! With ease, a little of the elements of these great players and tunes, dripped into the spirit and construction of ‘A.LIEN D.ANCE M.USIC.’ I added myself into the mix and the song was alive!”

Uncle Roy has also released two EPs in 2019, the progressive rock instrumental EP UNCLE ROYS SPACESHIPS’s “HOW DO WE GET TO EARTH?” and an alternative rock/vocal EP called “SAVE THE UNIVERSE” by UNCLE ROY AND THE BAND FROM ANOTHER PLANET. Both are available on-line and as a CD.

With musical comparisons written within the press reviews about those Ep’s, comparing the sounds to David Bowie and Cheap Trick to King Crimson and Frank Zappa, Uncle Roys Alien Music, certainly touches upon a universe of the different and cool genres of rock music that generations of Earthlings have loved!

UNCLE ROY aka ROY LEONARD HERMAN is from the cosmic city of Brooklyn, which is a borough of New York City, which is a planet, all by itself. All walks of musical life from all across the universe are there. Here is a little story he likes to tell about meeting a musical legend and an originator of what is called ‘rock ‘n’ roll music.’ “On a very, very rainy day, circa 1974, a friend and I took a drive to Chinatown in New York City. You could get the best and the most Chinese food at tiny, family owned restaurants, for only a few dollars. By the time we arrived in the big city the rain was torrential! I drove through the small streets to our destination. I pulled up in front of the restaurant and let my friend out so he could go in and get us a table. He jumped out and I looked around for a parking space. With incredible luck, there was a parking space directly across the street from the restaurant. So, I drove to the corner of the street and made a U-turn, hoping no one would hit me and that I would hit no one as well. The rain was making visibility through the car windshield completely blurry. Well, I made it safely from corner to corner and parked the car right across from the restaurant my friend was waiting at on the small street. I opened the window a little to see out and the rainfall poured in. I quickly closed the window and looked through it. No visibility was capable as the water cascaded down the window. I said, okay. I counted to three and pushed open the door, and closed it quickly. Instantly, I took off running to cross the street. And then, it happened!!! As I hit the middle of the street in full stride, I smashed into another person running across the street from the other direction! It was ‘Chuck Berry!’ I look up at him and he looks at me and we smile and laugh. I yell, ‘Chuck Berry!’ We start to shake hands and he continues to smile! Here I am standing in bucket loads of falling rain, in the middle of a street in NYC with Chuck Berry, a creator and inventor of a style of music that is loved all over the cosmos! Immediately, I say, “Chuck, come and eat with my friend and I!” Chuck looks at me, as we’re still shaking hands and he says, “I can’t. I have my people waiting for me over there.” Chuck points over my shoulder to a restaurant. I said, okay. We then said goodbye and we each ran out of the rain in opposite directions to the restaurants. This took only a few minutes of Earth time but the memory will last forever. This was amazing!”

As the Earth spins and revolves around the Sun over the next few months, UNCLE ROYS SPACESHIP is going to release several more singles into the musical universe. So, as always, watch the skies and stay tuned into your favorite places in the galaxy to hear music each day!

Featured Track: Andrea Arpetti-Quite A Show

Andrea Arpetti is a musician, vocalist and music teacher. Straight away he sounds like one of those diverse multi tasking indie artists, and he most definitely is.

His new track is "Quite A Show." It is a combination of dance/electronica, complete with the thumping beats, which drives the track, and some acoustic guitar to give it another layer, and a nice touch I may add.

Andrea has a very clear vocal style that sounds like it could wrap itself around just about any track in a large cross section of genres. Not everyone is blessed with that kind of talent and capability. With his education and knowledge of music and all the talents at his disposal, I can envision a long and successful career with the right backing in place.

This young lady has charisma, good looks and a terrific voice. In other words, she has got it all going on.

The track is energy filled pop with a dance layer that keeps your feet moving. Non-stop energy with a story, that is the best way to describe Ashley J.

Check out her video and stream and I am sure you will discover what I did!

Seitlos Debut Catchy Single Featuring Timotion

Seitlos is the brain child of producer/writer and multi instrumentalist Tim Milliken. The band consists of various musicians, dancers, performers and artists all bound together by a love for music. Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee and London, Tim is crafting his own genre of dance orientated pop music for a worldwide audience. Counting high profile names like Boy George amongst his fanbase, Tim is ready to take the industry by storm.
As a band, the idea behind Tim’s project Seitlos was to formulate a completely new brand of music to bring it to the forefront, blending a variety of styles and genres to create something beautiful. Essentially Seitlos is about breaking the mould of pop and becoming the most unconventional, unorthodox, and exciting act possible.

The debut single from Seitlos is upbeat and exciting, uncompromising and surprising in equal measure. It is music that inspires you to do something different and picks you up on a gloomy day. A combination of both the new and the old, Seitlos are doing something different with conventional channels to music. They don’t care about accolades or praise they just want to make music that people can enjoy and invest in.

Music for Seitlos is not about high profile names or locations associated with pop stardom, music to them is about passion, creativity, love and strength all of which is condensed and put into the craft and performance of their songs.

‘Just Do it’ is out NOW!

Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck

More About C'nky Siwela:

When I was 18 years old, I love dancing, singing and trying all sorts of music instruments. Getting positive results for what I love was a source of my inspiration to look forward. My real journey in my music started when I joined a well established institution of music in South Africa as a music tutor. I was too excited and also feeling inspired to be part of the institution. After few years as a music tutor, I became discouraged with the negativity and gossips from some of my colleagues. My flute students were doing fine and obtaining distinctions and merits with their exams until they were victims of infiltrations from some negative forces. I started to feel stress and nearly got killed in a car accident, I even lost my flute on the accident scene. The situation nearly affected my passion as a performer and music tutor. Most people around me were getting very concerned with my performance and I nearly quit. Some comments made to try and help me did result in actually making me feel even worse about my musical journey. Feeling trapped and lonely, I was very confused. I nearly gave up until I heard a special voice whispering in my ears reminding me that I am not only a human being but also a spiritual being and through the power from God I will beat this. This special voice made me to realize that music is not only a passion for me but a calling. I have to serve God and humanity. After a long denial and self introspection, I regained my strength and power to believe in me once again and I felt like a new person. Through hard work and self belief, I can proudly say I have realised that I am a born artist, inherited this art from the Siwela's family and I will never again quit. Music is my calling, hence the name of this song I present is titled “ My name in the Echo”. This served as an inspiration to whoever is trying to quit to listen to the voice of reason. The song talks about my struggle before I discovered my real place to express myself as an emerging Electro Pop/ Jazz Artist. If it was possible for me, it will also be possible for everyone.

San Rafael, CA - Tarpan Records is pleased to announce the international release of EVOLUTION the upcoming full-length album by Narada Michael Walden releasing on October 30th 2015. The albums’ first single, Billionaire On Soul Street, which was released on August 14th, 2015 and the forthcoming album represent a change of direction for Narada, one that brings him back to his roots in Dance and Club Music, Funk and Soul. The first single was, and full-length album will be released on Narada’s own imprint, Tarpan Records.

Narada Michael Walden has produced many household names including: Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, George Michael, Mariah Carey, Stacy Lattisaw, Steve Winwood, Ray Charles, Sister Sledge, Patti Austin, Gladys Knight, Rev Al Green, Barbra Streisand, Lionel Ritchie, Elton John, Sting, Carlos Santana, Shanice Wilson, Tevin Campbell, Lisa Fischer, Stevie Wonder, Tom Jones, Wynonna Judd and The Temptations. He was awarded Grammys for Producer of the Year in 1988, Album of the Year for the movie soundtrack The Bodyguard in 1993 and the R&B Song of the Year in 1985 for Aretha Franklin's Freeway of Love. Billboard Magazine also named him one of the “Top Ten Producers with the Most Number One Hits”.

As impressive a production and songwriting resume as Narada Michael Walden has assembled over the past forty years, he has earned equal acclaim as a recording and performing artist in his own right. Beginning as a drummer with the pioneering Mahavishnu John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra (following Billy Cobham at 20 years old), Narada also toured with Jeff Beck, Tommy Bolin, and Weather Report. With twelve acclaimed solo albums of his own which produced Dance Hits such as I Don’t Want Nobody Else to Dance With You, I Shoulda Loved Ya, Divine Emotions, Gimme Gimme Gimme and Tonight I'm Alright along the way, he has achieved greatness in a wide range of sonic arenas. Walden’s music includes groundbreaking soundtrack work on such blockbuster films as The Bodyguard, Free Willy, Beverly Hills Cops II, 9 ½ Weeks and Stuart Little including Gladys Knight’s License to Kill for the James Bond Film, Jefferson Starship’s Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now for Mannequin to the EMMY-winning One Moment In Time, the theme to the 1988 Olympic Games.

King, Buddy Guy, Mick Jagger, Trombone Shorty, Booker T Jones and more.

Narada enlisted some amazing musicians and performers for his band on EVOLUTION including: Nikita Germaine (Train, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, James Taylor, and Patty Austin) on Vocals, Frank Martin (Angela Bofil, John Handy Band, Tuck & Patti, Jose’ Neto, Airto & Flora, Sting & Trudie’s Rainforest Band) on Keyboards, Angeline Saris (Gretchen Menn, Zepperella) on Bass and Vocals, Matthew Charles Heulitt (Zigaboo Modaliste) on Guitars.

Narada explains about the album’s first single: “This album EVOLUTION means the world to me because it reflects my personal feeling of spirituality and that feeling renewed for life by having my children Kelly and Kaylah in my life and my wife Katie. Having children now at this time in my life really has touched my heart to feel like WOW! Look how lucky and how blessed I am by God. I used this slogan, this sentence that I got from Kimrea who works at my Tarpan Studios. Cause’ I feel so good like a Billionaire on Soul Street. “EVOLUTION is a strong statement from Narada, inspired by the “retro” sound that is so prevalent on the radio and in clubs today. The album features mostly original material and two covers; Freedom by Richie Havens and Long and Winding Road by John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

Tarpan Records will release Narada Michael Walden’s new album EVOLUTION internationally in October of 2015 with help from distribution and marketing powerhouse Independent Distribution Collective. This new album is a Dance masterpiece, with many flavors of Narada’s vast history mixed in.

His label, Tarpan Records is a home to both established and amazing up-and-coming artists as well.

Granddaughter of Legendary Dionne Warwick, Cheyenne Elliott to Release Narada Michael Walden Produced Singles and an EP in 2015

New York, NY – A brand new star has appeared on the US music scene; her name is Cheyenne Elliott. Cheyenne is the granddaughter of iconic singer Dionne Warwick, and a cousin of the late superstar Whitney Houston. In early 2014, producer Narada Michael Walden discovered her exemplary vocal talent and invited her out to Tarpan Studios in San Rafael, California, where Whitney, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and many other artists recorded some of their biggest hits. The young New Yorker was signed to Narada’s Tarpan Records. She will initially release a string of dance music mixes in the winter of 2014-15. Her debut EP is slated for release in early 2015.

Cheyenne’s talent was recognized at the tender age of 9 years old, at which time she started singing in public. Her grandmother, Dionne Warwick, called her to the stage to sing during a performance of her massive worldwide hit “That’s What Friends Are For” in Coney Island, New York. Even as a child she wowed the audience. Cheyenne learned her craft and drew innately from being born into a family of music royalty, including her grandmother, her father David Elliott - who co-wrote Luther Vandross’ massive hit “Here and Now,” and her late superstar cousin Whitney Houston. Dionne would play an instrumental role in Cheyenne’s development as a performer.

By the time Cheyenne was 10 years old, she demonstrated her immense talent while visiting recording studios in the Los Angeles area. She made subsequent appearances with Dionne at renowned venues throughout her youth. The audience’s appreciation of her vocal prowess led to summers traveling with her “Grammy,” performing in dozens of countries all around the world. She made a very special appearance celebrating Dionne’s 45th anniversary of recording at the Hollywood Palladium. Another performance honor included her Carnegie Hall debut at age 12, opening for legendary singer Gladys Knight. At 12 years old, Cheyenne also appeared on Dionne’s My Friends & Me album. She lent her vocals to a duet entitled “Love Will Find A Way,” a song that Dionne had previously recorded with Whitney. Cheyenne later joined Dionne, David, Whitney, Cissy Houston, Dee Dee Warwick, Bobbi Kristina Brown, Felicia Moss and others from the family on the recording of “Family First,” which appeared in the Tyler Perry movie Daddy’s Little Girls.

Cheyenne is following in the socially conscious footsteps of her grandmother, whose 1985 charitable recording of “That’s What Friends Are For” raised awareness and funds all over the world to help people suffering from the plight of AIDS. Cheyenne is featured on Dionne’s brand new release, Feels So Good. Narada produced a touching duet of the dynamic grandmother and granddaughter, entitled “Let There Be Love”.

The song happens to be written by Narada along with Shannon Rubicam & George Merrill, who wrote two of Whitney’s biggest hit songs: “How Will I Know” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me).” On the Feels So Good album, she joins the company of other luminaries such as Gladys Knight, Cyndi Lauper, Ne-Yo, Cee Lo Green, Jamie Foxx, Billy Ray Cyrus and many other greats.

Tarpan Records, in association with dance music powerhouse Dauman Records, is releasing a series of dance mixes of Cheyenne’s song “With You”. “With You,” which she co-wrote, is intentionally reminiscent of the classic disco era. The mixes are destined to heat up dance floors throughout the winter of 2014-15.

Cheyenne will be making many appearances over the next few months, including some major performances with Dionne Warwick in support of Feels So Good and their duet “Let There Be Love.” Cheyenne currently performs in nightclubs in and around New York City fine-tuning her craft, most often including Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar.

View Dionne Warwick introducing Cheyenne to her audience in Atlantic City, New Jersey earlier in 2014. Cheyenne then performs her original song “Saltwater Tears”:

Cheyenne’s duet with Dionne Warwick titled “Let There Be Love” is available now on iTunes:
