Kusha Deep Release The Tune Of The Summer!

Label: Kusha Deep Music
Title: If I Could Be Your Pill
Artist: KDX

Bring back the moment in your mind, when dance music was all about euphoria and unwavering positivity. The uplifting message to reach out for the endless possibilities and meeting like minded souls in clubs in London and Ibiza, who would then become friends for life, made the scene the biggest thing since the love in summer of 1967.
Bring on the 21st century and a decade passed where music changed from being about passion to an obsession with bling culture, style over content and with production straight from the wallet, you could be mistaken for thinking that the top ten was made in the same bedroom by the same person. Rest easy though because all is not lost.
Enter KDX, a UK team incorporating Darragh J Brady, Music Producer and Proprietor of the Kusha Deep Music label and Dean J.Stapple who runs the XRG label responsible for number one sample packs.

Darragh has a dance track record having scored hits by Taste of Paradise with a track called Reach Out released by the classic Cooltempo label that reached the UK chart in the early 90’s. Following that, Darragh had hits with Bliss, Urban Harmonix feat Rachel Brown of Faithless and Groove Armarda. He has also created records under his own name of Dar.Ra producing a more organic Soul Rock crossover that he calls Roul Music.
The team hooked up after Dean asked Darragh to make a stripped down version of his debut solo album Soul Hours, a completely live album cut down in 8 bar loops which so far has been a well received producer album on the biggest download outlet in the world for dance music loops.

Dean decided it was time to turn out a full tune, rather than the 8 bar loop tip and called in the help of Darragh for a new dance track that he had put together. Darragh then put pen to paper and worked out the song with his trusty guitar and Be Your Pill was born.
Some intense studio sessions gave birth to what is being called a modern dance classic. Bringing the euphoric vibe of 90’s house music scene mixed with 21st century production techniques is key to the KDX sound. The vocals written and performed by Darragh are more about being the lift for someone in their hour of need to take them out of the dark and into the light then being about misuse of substances.

The music is anthemic from the open big synth riffs and then builds into a hands in the air chorus, big groove and take you there arrangements. The radio mix delivers as does the extended vocal club mix. There is also a dubby remix which just powers along with trance like hedonism. A tight production all the way!

NEW EP by Dar.Ra Brings Drama To The Music World

Artist: Dar.Ra
Title: Now Is Now/EP
Label: Kusha Deep Music
Release Date: April 2011
Digital And CD Release Through Itunes + Kusha Deep

Three new dramatic pieces of musical persuasion written and produced by UK writer Dar.Ra, that once again holds the flag up for British music in the 21st century. Epic, Gothic and Thematic are words that Dar.Ra as a writer, has and always will use as key notes to create and achieve timeless pieces of musical tour de force.
There is no point in covering areas that other artists are covering well, so themes, places, scenes and landscapes are used constantly, and are intricately woven through the songs as a back draft story for visual experiences in a sonic medium.

Wolverine the second track on the EP, tracks the disenchantment with the reality that we will live and die in the concrete Metropolis, breathing fumes and looking up at grey skies, unless we hear the call of our connection with nature. The narration in the lyric is based on the ability of two people who can turn from humans to wolves. The male lead character calls to his partner to use her skills to escape the backdrop of a crumbling infrastructure which have become our inner cities. Her reluctance to hear the call comes from the fear of the unknown and the need to stick to familiar surroundings, only the surroundings are about to change forever and nothing will be familiar for much longer.

You Kill Me, the first track on the EP is based on the classic Betty Blue film theme of the vixen who plays with dependence on her lovers pleasure/ pain addiction. There is an amazing French speaking part of the song which details why she feels she can walk in and out of his life whenever she needs somewhere to leave her bags for a while. The ever turning relationship circle of greed and need keeps on going till one either gets bored or one cracks up under the pressure of wanting something you can never have. So the story goes on and will have to wait till the follow up to this song is done to find out what happens and if he can find the strength to finally say enough.

Safe In Your Arms is a track taken off the successful debut album Soul Hours which was an album and artist of the week on Heart FM in Spain, featured on the ABC TV network in the States in a movie starring Hilary Duff and was play listed on independent radio stations in the UK, Europe and Japan.

Safe In Your arms is one of the stand moments on the album, beautifully arranged strings which haunt you from the intro to the coda and a melodic structure that would have not of been out of place on the Beatles Rubber Soul album. The lyric is a call to be returned home to safe places and people who know and love you. You can be in paradise but it can feel like hell if you’re not feeling the connection of the environment and the people around you. The longing inside for a return home is a theme felt by solders and travellers from the dawn of time and as long as we roam this planet, it will be a theme that makes, a track like this timeless.
Its in artists who dig deep and create from the soul that we trust and we trust that you will fall in love with this EP.
Its released digitally through Itunes (search Dar.Ra and download) and also through
