We’re thrilled to have Big Kenny as our “on the cover” artist for this issue. He’s one-half of the multi-platinum country duo Big & Rich, and he continues to push boundaries with his new ELECTRO SHINE music project. For this effort he brings together an eclectic fusion of beats, instrumentation and feel-good lyrics. This week a new installment of Electro Shine Remix tracks was released on Glotown Records, including “Party Like Cowboyz” and “Born Again” from Big & Rich’s latest release, Hillbilly Jedi. “I’ve decided that it’s time to get everybody dancing again It’s time to start celebrating life, no matter how much BS we keep enduring in the world”. For those passionate “out of the box” EDM, country and hick-hop music lovers, ELECTRO SHINE’s debut EP, The Hits Vol. 1, features a love of “Muzik Without Prejudice,” the mariachi inspired and pop infused “Electro Country Shine,” the feel good dance anthem “Hope Chant,” electronic country and rap anthem “Star,” and three versions of “Dance Upon The Solid Ground,” the up-tempo jam ingrained with twangy fiddle, banjo and electronic melodies is also available at all digital retail outlets: iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and Rhapsody. In addition to the recordings, soon to be announced will be the ELECTRO SHINE touring show. The Vegas-style show under a big top tent will include singers, musicians, rappers, dancers, badass beats, aerialists, lights, lasers, psychedelic great visuals, and even little blue flying winged cherubs! An experience that could be best described as a musical circus, hosted by Big Kenny, where a collision of EDM, Americana, Country, Reggae, Rock, Pop, and Hip-Hop will create the vibe and party atmosphere that will keep everyone inspired and on the dance floor.
