    "Up Close & Personal" with multidimensional eclectic guitarist "Rob Tardik"

    in Music

    Rob Tardik — Moments


    Nov. 2, 2015

    Since the very early 2000s, guitarist Rob Tardik has been dazzling listeners with his exciting and often exotic mix of substantive c-jazz/R&B/rock and burning hot Latin melodies. With tunes so attractive, they are by nature riveting, seductive, uplifting, and powerful.Such is the case with his latest release Moments, another eclectic gem.

    Seizing the moment and leading off with a Latin scorcher, “Sip and Salsa,” inspired by his fiancé’s love of dance, the gifted guitarist soars from one mood to another. Examples would be track two’s sizzler jazz/rocker “Rite of Passage,” then on to the romantic R&B deliciousness of “Moments in Time” featuring the silky lead vocals of one Aiden Castillo and sweet backing harmonies of vocalists Dee and Brittani Cole, and the handsome downtempo Latin-tinged “Eros.” Definitely not applying the brakes on the project yet, Tardik treats us to a stinger with a mean hook called “Hang Time” which is co-written by fellow guitarist Steve Oliver (who is featured in some way or other throughout the album). In fact, Oliver co-produced the album with Tardik. A very cool pairing indeed.

    Tardik enjoys the contributions of other very fine notable musicians here, as well, including saxmen Will Donato and Walle Larsson, trumpeter Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, bassist Gary Grainger (of Acoustic Alchemy fame), pianist/keyboardist Nate Harasim, and a host of others who felt the groove and wanted in.

    Speaking of feeling the groove, you will definitely want to stop by and check out the blazing funkster called “Stop!,” a command you may have trouble obeying on the dance floor. Whew. Is there a fire extinguisher in the house?

    Interview w/Rising Indie Artist T9 Da Prince Hosted By Qween$Ching

    in Hip Hop Music

    T9 da prince who is now 24 years old grew up in the small town of Salisbury Maryland. T9 grew up in a not too bad, but not perfect neighborhood. In a small town it seems as though there wasn't much to get into that was all that positive. Although, it wasn't the projects and having both parents was a plus. With a talent T9 still managed to be expelled by the age of 15 for recording songs on cassettes. T9 eventually got a laptop & recording program that sounded like it was recorded inside of a Pepsi can but still gave out mixtapes. A few months later his hobby took a huge turn when he met young Shinah who would later become his coach. Young Shinah was already doing shows and had the local scene on smash. "Infact, I use to listen to em on the way to school was pretty much a fan." That was when the worlds collided little by little. Although T9 was no stranger to the hood it was then that it actually became a day to day thing being around the drugs, guns, money and crime. It was an adrenaline rush for T9. Growing up mixed nationalities T9 felt like he had to "over do it" to out do the next man. Overall, it is T9's main goal to make people feel comfortable about being themselves. Although, T9 hasn't lived as bad as alot of his family/friends he has experienced and been involved in many lifestyles, at one point he even attempted college. Now, doing what he "should have done years ago" he's working a job while getting his own business off the ground!

    For Jesse Cook, music has been a journey. Sonically and literally.  His new release, One World, begins another chapter in the multi-tasking artist, composer and producer’s quest. His destination: The digital realm. To create the disc’s emotive melodies, fluid grooves and rich sonic tapestries, he incorporated technology more than ever before.

    The Paris-born, Toronto-raised Cook himself is a product of cross pollination and his guitar compositions incorporate rumba, gypsy, flamenco, Latin, Afro-Cuban, jazz and classical motifs into multicultural amalgams. On previous discs, Cook traveled extensively and recorded in disparate locales in order to foster authenticity. However, on “One World,” he opted to sonically explore far-reaching lands from his home studio while incorporating more modern technology and electronics than ever harnessed on past ventures. Cook’s alluring guitar prowess remains the focal point - expressive, poetic, evocative and emotionally stirring.

    Interview: Jon Wuebben of ContentLaunch

    in Marketing

    I'm pretty excited about this podcast, our first in our new podcast studio at DK New Media! Jon Wuebben has been a long-time friend, we seem to bump into each other at every conference and love hanging out together. He's also an entertaining singer, the life of the dance floor, and can do a heck of a job on Karaoke.

    Jon is a multi-book author and helps clients develop content strategies, deploy their content, and promote their content online. The frustrations of the industry led him to develop his own platform, ContentLaunch, for planning, coordinating, publishing and promoting content. It's primary focus is on the small and mid-size business market since Jon saw the industry only providing large, expensive, enterprise products to handle the process.

    In the first half, we speak quite a bit about the platform, but the second half of the interview gets into some incredible detail on content marketing strategies and its use to build relationships with your prospects and customers. Be sure to listen - we've got great information throughout and will leave you with a task that will transform your content ideation strategy.
