Enigmatic new dance/pop artist J786’s (http://j786.net/) single “Rock Tonight” is now at #5 on the Billboard Dance Club Chart’s top ten after entering the chart at #8 last week.
With mixes by Dave Aude, Ralphi Rosario and Jason Nevins “Rock Tonight” has an on trend sound that fits right in with today’s top club hits by Usher, the Black Eyed Peas, Drake, B. o.B., Taio Cruz and other current stars.
J786 (http://j786.net/) is America’s first virtual artist. Like France’s popular electronic duo Daft Punk, J786 will only be seen in public in his robotic disguise. Additionally J786 is the only artist whose purpose in the music business is to raise funds and awareness for charity. In order to raise the most money for his cause, J786 decided to write and sing songs that has the widest appeal worldwide. Therefore he decided to release tracks in the dance/pop genre and work with his co-writer/singer Raatree.
J786 supports the Free Medical Clinics across America. He believes that the most fundamental right of Americans besides education, is healthcare. He believes that the corrupt and exploitive medical industry and US Congress, who are on their take for campaign contributions, are responsible for leaving over 50 million Americans without any medical insurance and thus medical care. Recent legislation may change this scenario, but in the meantime millions go without proper healthcare.
At the time of entering the recording contract with his label, Starbugs Records, J786 negotiated that under no circumstances would his identity be revealed and that not one cent from the label or other sources of income from J786’s music will be paid to him directly but will handled by a respected accounting firm who in turn send all funds to the National Association of Free Clinics (http://www. freeclinics. us).
J786 is a Native American living near his tribal area in the Sacramento Valley in California where he maintains a very modest life style. He has been writing and playing music since the age of 16 in many different bands and projects.
While volunteering in Los Angeles soup kitchen for the homeless he met a few Hollywood celebrities who liked listening to J’s songs and encouraged him to meet people who would help him get a record deal. Eventually he met a fellow Native American and music producer Ed Silvercloud and after a few weeks they became close friends. This lead to J786 signing the contract with the newly formed indie label Starbugs Records.
After several meetings with J786, the chairman of the Starbugs Records, Dilip Sontakey, agreed to develop J786 as a virtual artist who will donate 100% of his income from his music to the cause that J786 believes in, helping Free Clinics raise funds to aid children, women, seniors, and others who cannot afford high priced medical insurance.
In the near term J786 will promote his single and look to release his full length album in the Spring of 2011. He will also continue helping homeless and jobless folks around Los Angeles and San Francisco and other cities in between.
