Honeycomb Music Vol.1

Honeycomb Music

Released: 31st October 2011 | 13 track deep house album
Legendary producer/songwriter Josh Milan (from the soulful supergroup Blaze) reveals his brand new Honeycomb Music project with the release of a fantastic double album dripping with soulful gems on his very own label! 'Honeycomb Music Volume 1', recorded in Josh's own home, is dedicated to putting the real instrumentation and genuine heart felt soul back into dance music, Josh culls in a combination of amazing soulful pioneers and brand new upcoming talent to feature on the album alongside his fantastic band, touching every aspect of soul music in the process. The result of 2.5 year labour of love is a stunning collection of heartfelt songs and a lush tapestry of true dancefloor soul. The artists on this project all have a lot to offer. To really make a statement I thought it would be better to put a group of talented people together. This way the music is way more colourful. This project is a feel good project so as you're listening I hope you're feeling good. Josh Milan Kicking off with an interesting spoken introduction from Josh himself which poses food for thought, featured on the album are lots friends including Cassio Ware on 'Wake Up' who Josh has known for 'over 20 years; THE Queen of Gospel, Dawn Tallman on 'GOD', who performed most of the backing vocals on the album and who Josh cooks fried chicken for everytime she comes over to record. Another big hitter is the legendary lead singer of genre slashing cult band, The Family Stand, Sandra St Victor, who appears on 'I Am Better' & the Brainstorm 70's funk band inspired 'Yourself'. Also making an appearance are the distinct thunderous voice of Brooklyn's Alex P Suter and her band on 'Hole That I'm In'; multitalented artist, soulful veteran and Brooklyn urban socialite, Crystal Johnson on 'Who Am I'; One of Nu-Soul's best loved New York diva's, Angela Johnson on 'Forever I Do'; Bronx born, Quincy Jones' label mate T'Zelle on 'Kipepeo'; the trailblazin soulja of soul also from Connecticut, Lamone on 'Your Eyes'; and of course not forgetting the unmistakeable voice of woman behind the recent soulful smash 'Till You Go Home' Chinahblac. New talent hails from New York City by way of Miss Cinnamon Brown, (who possibly has the best disco name ever!) who debuts on the fantastic house groove 'Under The Moonlight', along with another new discovery from Josh and also making their debut, Brooklyn's worldly rhythm inspired band Honey Sweet on 'Raul Rosario, We Miss You'. All penned by Josh along with co-writes with Angela, Crystal, Lamon and Cassio, 'Honeycomb Music Volume 1' started with Josh and his beloved keyboard after which his band members Jerard Snell (Drummer) and Leighton Rambaran (Bass) joined in the fun, along with a number of musicians from around the globe who were invited to put their own stank on the music. Finally, after 25 years on the scene and celebrating 20 years of writing and producing, Josh Milan is a talent force to be reckoned with! Armed with a brand new label, and a plethora of talent at his fingertips he is just as current as he was then, producing relevant hits today as he did back in 1985... There is a lot of live instrumentation that the industry has gotten away from. That's the main reason I'm starting Honeycomb Music. I wanted to be in full control of the music that comes out. Labels like to have a hand in your music. The industry has a way of dictating what some producers feel they should produce. I'm choosing to march to my own BEAT. Josh Milan
