Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) February 21, 2014 -- The veteran songwriting and music production team known as Andy Sikorski and Ed Unger have released their latest official single, titled, "Shine (Just Because)." The single is an electronic dance music anthem with elements of pop and traditional house which combine to form a full, highly textured and colorful listening experience. Their new single has been released on the Gratitude Productions music label.
Sikorski and Unger cite as main artistic influences such artists as Above and Beyond, Morgan Page, Andy Moore, Sick Individuals, Calvin Harris, Showtek, Ummet Ozcan, and Skrillex. While each of these inspirations have found their way into the undertone and character of "Shine," and into music by Sikorski and Unger in general, the feel and groove of their material is warm and optimistic in a familiar way that longtime fans of the duo will instantly recognize.
"The song is a message of encouragement," write Unger and Sikorski of the themes present in "Shine." "Go for your dreams, time is short, live your passions and be unique just because you are you. Don't let other people's drama stop you from your goals. They will get their own karma."
Their uplifting words are capped with a final, un-punctuated word - "Shine"
Andy Sikorski first hit music charts in his home nation of Poland, composing digital music for the underground demo music scene there. Fueled by an appreciation for early digital musicians such as Jean Michelle Jarre, Vangelis, and the KLF ("3 A.M. Eternal"), Sikorski wrote music for computer video animations as "dSx! Design." He is credited for his popular work with digital underground groups such as TRSI and Freezers.
Ed Unger, having started his musical journey somewhat more traditionally, began by playing saxophone and guitar. He joined bands in high school, learned bass guitar, and lent his vocals to a variety of performing groups. He practiced early forms of solo music production, programming drum machines and bass lines to facilitate his performing solo live. He ran a recording studio in Atlanta, GA, lived in Miami, FL, and visited London, Amsterdam and Paris before dedicating his attention to the production of EDM music and singing.
"Shine (Just Because)" is available online worldwide.
