Pop, Hip Hop, and Urban Producer Launches Nico Breeze Productions, A New Bay Area Production Company and Resource for Established and Developing Artists and Labels

San Francisco, CA, - Nico Breeze Productions is a San Francisco Bay Area based production company founded in early 2013 by producer Nico Breeze. Most recently Nico co-produced and mixed a Hip-Hop/R&B project titled Obsession for Zenith Point Records, which will release worldwide April 21st, 2015 through Independent Distribution Collective. Obsession boasts the talents of Chicago rapper Add-2 (Jamla Records) and a diverse mixture of both established and promising California based artists such as: Niko Ellison, Maryann (Bae God), Bobby (Dub) Werner and Are Too. Throughout his career Nico Breeze has developed a professional studio footprint and a talent for producing Top 40 Hip-Hop, R&B, Pop, Urban Dance, and music for Film and Television.

Surrounded by a family of musicians, Nico’s dedication to music began at 8 years old, following in his father’s footsteps as a Jazz and Orchestral trumpet player. His brother Kevin is the front man and bassist for San Francisco’s prominent punk band Flexx Bronco. It was music from the 1990’s era of Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop that sparked Nico’s love affair with production at just 16 years old. He continued his musical aspirations and education through High School and College, ultimately earning a degree in Music Technology from Foothill College.

Nico continued his music production studies at Pyramind Studios in San Francisco pursuing coursework in arrangement, music theory, and mixing, as well as becoming an Avid-certified Pro Tools Expert. Prior to the completion of Pyramind’s Digital Sound Producer program, Nico was recruited and hired as an integral member of their team.

His collaborative work with other producers, rappers, singers, songwriters, and music professionals have contributed to Nico’s innovative production style and unique sound. Constant evolution of both creative and technical practices is the center of his production tenet, which enables Nico Breeze to integrate diverse perspectives into the composition process. He believes that “persistence, discipline, and the desire for growth will always light the pathway to success.”

Nico Breeze Productions is currently booking projects for the next few months and will continue to take on new production endeavors throughout 2015 and beyond.

By the summer of 2015 Nico will launch an independent record label to give a home to both established and developing artists he produces. Through existing and new relationships with worldwide distribution and marketing companies, Nico Breeze Productions is uniquely positioned to soar into the national spotlight.

Over the next few months Nico Breeze will launch a series of promotions including remix contests, new sound and stem packages, and other music giveaways.

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
