Digital Bliss 1 / Various
Digital Bliss Productions and Boutique Electronique Records officially announce the release of the "Digital Bliss Vol. 1" Compilation CD. Digital Bliss Vol. 1 is designed to celebrate and promote some of our favorite talented female artists/vocalists and expose independent female electronic musicians, producers and vocalists from all genres of digital music. Gorgeous, ethereal voices of the current electronica movement float over downtempo, drum-n-bass, techno and ambient grooves. Artists are from San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Austin, Germany and Italy. The compilation features trip-hop symphonic landscapes from Artemis, Alu and Musetta, indie electro from Celeste Lear and Lila's Medicine, ambient drum-n-bass from Divasonic with her signature flute stylings, alternative downtempo poptronica from Sutro and Return to Mono, live looping duo Loop!Station, ethereal IDM from Comfort Food, spiritual worldbeat from Bekka's Frogland Orchestra, a bouncy techno song from the larger-than-life Alice Rose. Digital Bliss Productions was established in 2004 by Lynda Arnold to promote women electronic music producers, vocalists, instrumentalists and engineers as well as women who combine media and disciplines to create their own unique voice in the digital realm. Digital Bliss seeks to connect groups in the wildly varied Electronic music scene to create more community and cross-pollination in the Bay Area and subsequently on a Global Scale. Through performances, education, touring, compilation releases and blogging we share our new voices and music. Boutique Electronique Records was founded in 2005 by music producer/engineer Celeste Lear who wished to create a "Kinder, gentler label" to record, produce and market music/videos made by cutting edge musicians and producers around the world. The compilation artwork and layout was designed by Julian Flores from Live Life Culture clothing company (Livelifeculture.com), in San Francisco. Julian was inspired by the cat logo used for our 2005 festival event designed by Dave V. at Vanderkitten.com. Vanderkitten, a clothing and design company, has sponsored past Digital Bliss events and continues to promote the mission of Digital Bliss. Promotional tour dates and additional information related to Digital Bliss Vol. 1 will be updated at digitalblissproductions.com. CD will be released April 1st 2007 and will be available on iTunes, Rhapsody, CD Baby and Amoeba Records. Stay tuned, Lynda Arnold and Celeste Lear.
