Jake Records, a leading independent record label, today announced the release and global availability of "The Plushcast Sessions" album by Southern California based Deuce Maxwell. The album features Hip Hop infused Jazz music instrumentals designed to marry the best of both genres.The sound is unlike anything else really found in the current landscape of music. "Deuce Maxwell is the consummate producer, always playing with sounds and finding new combinations that spark something special," said Jake Records VP/Artist Relations Dan Diaz. "The Plushcat Sessions is a journey through sound, and fits many moods," he added.
"Producing the album was cool because I had the freedom to record exactly what I wanted," said Deuce Maxwell. "I was able to utilize my love for both hip-hop and jazz, and make my own thing happen," he added.
The blending of Jazz and Hip Hop is an audio experience to behold on The Plushcat Sessions. Whether driving through insane commute traffic, or dimming the lights for a night in with your special someone, Maxwell explains that the album is "the perfect form of stress relief, it's edgy but soothing, relaxing yet sensual at the same time."
Jake Records is happy to announce the release of the album, and the bold new sound from the label. "We're excited to be working with Deuce on this release. It's a different side of Jake Records, and we feel its important for people to get to know that side of us," said Jake Records VP/Special Projects Shawn Cagle. "We're still a new company by almost any standards, and while it may seem as though we lean towards one genre, The Plushcat Sessions can lay those ideas to rest. We're all about great music here, in all its various forms," he added. "With an industry overwhelmed with new artists doing the same old things, it's feels good to be the refreshing alternative out here with an album that can stand the test of time," said Maxwell on the project and working with Jake Records.
The album is available now, worldwide, via iTunes, LaLa.com, Amazon,com, AmieStree.com and many more.
