New Album Release & Recommendation: SOULSTICE: 'In The Light'

After a 10 year hiatus, Soulstice is back 'In The Light'.

You already know. All the music and albums featured in this blog represent my personal taste and interests, exploring that way the artists and styles that define The Male Model Music Project's unique experience and particular concept: "Select the sounds that define you and share them".

Now I advise you check out Soulstice's brand new album 'In The Light', just released today.
Soulstice is a collaboration project based in San Francisco, featuring DJ Mei-Lwun, Andy Caldwell, Gabriel Rene and Gina Rene in vocals.
Futuristic, soulful, melancholic, abstract & timeless are some of the words that describe the sounds of Soulstice. Their first album 'Illusion' back in 2001 was acclaimed by several publications and led them to collaborations with Fila Brazilia, Miguel Migs, DJ Spinna and many more, releasing a remix album entitled 'Mixed Illusions'.
After 10 years, Soulstice is back with 'In The Light', featuring new songs and remixes by Kaskade, King Kooba and Nightmares On Wax, just to mention some. Simply Delicious!!!
'In The Light', a HOT release for this spring-summer. Do not miss it.
Make sure you preview the full album and order your copy, HERE.
(My CD Copy is on its way to hit the project!)

'Changes' is the first single. Check out the remixes from King Kooba, Rocket Empire and more, HERE.

Trentemøller answers THE MALE MODEL MUSIC PROJECT's question


A few weeks ago The Male Model Music Project submitted a question for Trentemøller on his upcoming compilation for the Late Night Tales series to be released on May 30.
The question was:
"Tell us about your cover version for Chris Isaak's 'Blue Hotel'. How did you come up with this specific track to cover for the Late Night Tales Series?"

Now, the exclusive interview with Trentemøller is out on Late Night Tales official blog and the original question has been reformulated and adapted as follows:

What made you choose the cover track you did for Late Night Tales and were there any other options you were thinking of going for?
Blue Hotel by Chris Isaak has always been a favorite of mine. And I thought it could be interesting to take the song in another direction. Also because the original is so unique and great I thought it really had to be a different vibe and sound wise.
Yeah, I also thought about
Spirit Ditch by Sparkle Horse.

Check out the full interview, HERE.
