Worldwide phenomenon LA Velvet is a Los Angeles-based band founded in 2010 by front woman pioneer and lioness Laura V, who provides the vocals and fierce guitar-playing skills to the tracks, in addition to song writing. LA Velvet “plays their own version of modern danceable rock that conquers the charts,” described by Obliveon Magazine as a combination of a “’70s Blondie, an 80’s Kim Wilde and a 90’s Gwen Stefani and No Doubt.”
Prior to their official album release, LA Velvet already licensed songs to 18 television shows, including Keeping Up With The Kardashians, The Real L Word, MTV, VH1 and OXYGEN. Severe Records and GUnit produced LA Velvet’s second album The One I Love, which they are currently on tour promoting. The band has already been nominated for multiple awards at the 2011 World Independent Music and Film Festival including awards for Best Cinematography, Best Director and Best Rock Video. LA Velvet has major endorsement deals with Mineral Case Make up, Coffin Case and Jackson Guitars, who provided the hot pink Flying-V, which has become a part of Laura V’ s signature style.
LA Velvet’s self-produced debut album has sold thousands of copies worldwide, taking LA Velvet on a successful national tour in 2012, reaching out to fans as far away as Germany. Their latest album, The One I Love, was met with favorable reviews by the critics and hailed by Venture Magazine as “a chart worthy collection of sassy vocals, punchy guitar and high energy,” while Peter Amara of Escence Center Stage describes it as “a thunderous mix of indie rock and electronic influences” that effectively “enthralls and raptures the listening audience with its infectious melodies.”
LA Velvet continues to surprise its audience with a daring and innovative approach to rock music, providing a unique, customized sound mixed with sweet powerful lyrics, resulting in a sound that is fearless and original. A sound that is… LA Velvet.

Fantomen is a Spanish&Swedish producer that during the last years has been releasing Progressive House tracks with a very distinctive sound that needs to be heard to be understood: deep yet melodic, energizing yet relaxing, aggressive yet warm. This distinct sound, together with his music production skills, has provided Fantomen some huge success so far:
- 3 Top 40 itunes Spain dance charts so far
- Reached #1 in Reverbnation dance charts for Spain
- Several thousands Facebook and Twitter fans
- Several successful releases in Beatport, iTunes and 100+ of other online music portals
- Present in over 15 trance/house compilation albums during the last year
The roots of Fantomen dates back to the early 2000s, when Fantomen learnt by himself how to produce music and managed to have one of his tracks (“Intemporary”) reach #13 with over 50.000 downloads in the extinct MP3.com music portal. After quitting music for several years, Fantomen decided to come back stronger than ever and is poised to continue to release tracks for his fans, but always respecting the sound that has made Fantomen so popular and so distinct.

Altynay graduated from music school specializing in piano. She followed her passion for music by pursuing a career as a singer, first in Kazakstan, and later, the United States.
She has been performing since early childhood. Along with her music performances, Altynay also showed her academic abilities by participating in a show called “21st Century Leader”, a version of “Jeopardy” for teenagers. In addition, she competed in a Kazakh National Competition for gifted teens called “Anshi Balapan”.
She has performed numerous times at the International Competition “Jakhan Dala” in the city of Aqtau. She has also competed in the competition NEW WAVE, in Latvia, Jurmala.

Victor Valdez is rocked from an early age in all styles of music (classical, new wave, disco), but his great love is funk.
During his teens, he lives his passion for deejaying, at first for friends, then at various clubs in Paris and abroad. He quickly starts producing his own tracks, which he slips into his sets.
This passion leads him to a sound engineer school from which he graduates still with a single aim: composing his own music.
During summer 2009 he meets the future singer Christophe Paris, who shares with him the same pop, funk, disco and house music influences. It results in the birth of a new band: THE GLIMPS.
Together they decide to start on a unique experience in 2010: to allow their fans to get artistically involved in the release of their first album. THE GLIMPS PROJECT is born.
The Glimps: Music Made To Order Via Facebook
Aslem Smida, Manager and Producer for the Electronic/Dance/Pop band The Glimps, says the band has given new meaning to “making music just the way you like it.” The Glimps are using Facebook in a most innovative way, actually allowing registered members on their Facebook fan pages to vote on each and every aspect of a track before it is released. The culmination of this journey will be the release of their debut track in mid September, and one each month after that until the finalized version is ready in June, 2011.
The Glimps want to make the music that their fans will enjoy the most. So, one track at a time, they develop three different versions of a song, post them to Facebook, and allow the fans to vote on them utilizing a poll. Fans also decide on the artwork for the CD, the name of the song, and even the lyrics.
Anyone can listen to the 30 second extracts of the songs that are posted on both Facebook and ReverbNation, but those who sign up for the band’s mailing list will receive full streaming access, which is the band’s way of maintaining a special relationship with their fans. Members who become fans and help to promote the band by sending emails to their Facebook contacts (and either copying or blind copying email@example.com) will also receive a free track, which will be sent to them through email.
The three versions of the first and current single were uploaded to Facebook on July 7th for fans to begin voting on. The opportunity to provide feedback to the band will continue until mid-September, at which time, the results of the polling will be gathered. The band will then use that information to go back into the studio and make the final track. The song will also be given a title at that time, and the final CD cover art will be selected, all based on Facebook fan voting and feedback.
While the first track is being made in the studio in mid-September, different versions of the second track will be uploaded to Facebook and the process will begin again. Smida commented, stating “We’re giving fans a bit more time to complete their voting on the first track. After then, they’ll be familiar with it, and we’ll have a database of fans ready for polling. We should be able to complete one track each month, with a goal of four finalized tracks and artwork by December, and a complete debut CD ready by June, 2011.”
The Glimps began working together as a band in 2010, merging their love for funk, pop, disco, and electro music. The band is comprised of keyboardists Max Danton and Victor Valdez, and vocalist Christophe Paris, who are all from Paris, France.
As the band’s CD will be released in both Europe and the U.S., the band has set up Facebook fan pages in both French (http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Glimps/119661908054599?ref=ts) and English (http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Glimps/129307250435296?ref=ts).
What makes THE GLIMPS so unique ?
Yolanda is a natural born performer who thrives on the energy of fans. Her soul, heart and passion for creating engaging tunes are infused in her music. Yolanda writes with purpose and enthusiasm from experience and creativity. She has the unique ability to pull you into her lyrics and beats to live the story of the song and feel its emotion. She enjoys connecting with people, helping people by using her love and compassion to make a difference in the lives of others. Inspired by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, Yolanda cultivated her skills at a young age by listening to, learning from and loving the music, soul and dance of the legend. Yolanda’s life has been guided by her faith in God and she is a true believer in the Power of Prayer.

Just a producer from Chicago! Well I mean not JUST a producer…I think I’m pretty good! Well I mean you have to think I’m pretty good too. I mean you don’t HAVE to. But ummm, I hope you do. If you need music, I can definitely sell you some. I live in Chicago. It’s pretty dangerous here. I know that was kind of random. But duhh, I’m BiPolar what do you expect!
