Remix Collection Calls Attention To Consequences Of Global Warming;
Marks Tenth Studio Release For Young Pals Records
Young Pals Records celebrates the release of its 10th studio project, with the consummate summer dancefloor anthem “Wild,” Miami Remixed, by Tinatin. The collection comprises five rafter-raising re-rubs of the song from prominent DJs, plus the music video, lensed in New York City and South Beach, Miami.
“Wild” is the title track of Tinatin’s six track EP, released in May, written by Tinatin and Ayhan Sahin, and produced by Sahin. While the song’s force field of cacophonous percussion and insistent beats beckon one to the dancefloor, the lyric offers a socially conscious call to the consequences of climate change, as a rash of alarming trends sweep the land: “temperatures plummeting to 12 below at the equator, a dry spell across South America’s tropical rain forests and fire along the Polar ice caps.” Young Pals is donating 10% of the song’s proceeds to Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection.
In addition to the Ayhan Sahin Crystal Ball Remix (6:21), versions of “Wild” include the Jason Jayma & DJ Scorpio Club Mix (8:08), Luke Savant Club Mix (6:13), Tom Noize Remix (6:19), Orly Productions Remix (4:43) and Jay Moore Synth Mix (7:42).
The video clip showcases Tinatin as a tightly wound Wall Street executive fantasizing about letting loose in a sexually charged fantasy sequence shot throughout posh clubs and hotels and along the sandy beaches of South Beach (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATGAfmkRg6c). It was lensed by Christopher Holmes/ Holmeswood Features, as was the music video for the original EP version of “Wild.”
Tinatin is an acclaimed vocalist, songwriter and writer, deemed a Billboard magazine “Artist To Watch” in 2008. Her composition “Connected” was a Pop finalist in the John Lennon Song Contest; while in 2009, “Is It True,” sung by Yohanna, was runner-up among 42 global entries at the Eurovision Song Contest held in Moscow. She was also named Lyricist of the Year by the ESC European Music Awards. Tinatin subsequently signed a worldwide deal with Kobalt Publishing.
Sahin has worked with Olivia Newton-John, Melba Moore, Phoebe Snow, Turkish superstar Sezen Aksu, Sandra Bernhard and a half-dozen “American Idol” finalists, including the 2010 debut single for “AI” season eight finalist/comedian Norman Gentle, “Bitch Slap!” He is associate producer of the award-winning music documentary “Lift Humanitarian Relief Songs Initiative,” which features Tinatin as one of 35 vocalists from around the world.
With the sun high in the sky, “Wild” Miami Remixed will be issued to DJs and clubs worldwide in July. Indeed, the frenetic dance floor paean is ready for its close up.
