And now, moving on to the next order of business: our new Music of the Week. This man has been turning the Industrial scene upside down with his sick sounds. From Germany, I present to you Faderhead!
After releasing the track "The Protagonist" as a one-off compilation entry on the Advanced Electronics Vol. 3, Faderhead received a lot of record company attention and finally signed with Accession Records/Indigo to release his debut album FH1 in 2006. Rave reviews and the inofficial "newcomer of the year" title made FH1 an instant debut-success with standout tracks like "The Protagonist", "Vanish" and "O/H Scavenger". The year progressed and saw Faderhead play shows alongside bands like Combichrist, Diary Of Dreams, SITD, Painbastard and others.
2007 saw the release of the FH2 CD which featured the club hit "Dirtygrrrls/Dirtybois". Faderhead released a music video for the track "Girly Show" and played festivals like Wave-Gotik-Treffen (Germany) and Infest (UK) among other shows.
2008 started with the departure from Accession Records and the signing to L-Tracks Recordings. This decision led to serious speculation regarding the future of Faderhead by press and fans, but the free song/video release of the pianoballad "Exit Ghost" firmly silenced all sceptics. Only a few months later the powerful club-anthem "TZDV" was released and instantly became a worldwide club hit in the hard electro scene. On October 10th, the highly-anticipated FH3 album was released and again gathered top reviews from media and fans alike - FH3's darker mood and more aggressive tones showing once again an evolution from the previous recordings.
Faderhead's live shows are currently supported by Marco Visconti (Grendel/XP8) on keyboards and backing vocals. The Hamburg producer/vocalist uses different musicians for live backings and so far has played with Alex Montana (drums) and Christine LaGivrée, Dr. T, Shaolyn, Chandler XL and Shawn Mierez.
To learn more about Faderhead, check out his his official website, his MySpace, and his Facebook. And for all you iTunes users, make sure to check out some of his music on the iTunes Store!
That's it for us this week. Glad to see you all again and we'll be back next time with our new Music Video of the Week, coming this Wednesday! We are the JSRevolution, and just like before, and until the end of time, we will forever be Shaping The Future With Music!

In a crimson flash, we're the blood that keeps the heart of the streets alive! We're the one, the only JET SET RADIO! And this is the JSRevolution!
Welcome to the first ever post of 2009! Hope you all survived your New Year's Eve! Well, we don't have a new Music of the Week this time around, but I do have some awesome news: yours truly has been selected as the leader of the Drive A Arizona Street Team!
Featured in a previous Music of the Week, here's a quick synopsis of the band:
Hailing from Southern California, the members of DRIVE A have come together to forge a killer mix of pounding drums, lethal guitars, cascading bass lines and fierce vocals that converge to create a sound that pays respect to the past, stands up to the present and will kick down the door to the future. A switchblade to the soft, white underbelly of today's watered-down state of music, DRIVE A are pure, raw energy - on stage and in the studio - which is, after all, what Rock 'N' Roll has always been about.
If you want to be part of the Drive A Arizona Street Team, head over to http://www.myspace.com/driveastreetteamarizona and I'll add you on! If you hail from another state, go to Drive A's MySpace for more information! And make sure you tell them the JSRevolution sent you!
That's it for us this week. Until then, keep Shaping The Future With Music!

You can try to shut us down, but the electricity of the soul of the street gives us more than enough power to keep coming back! We are the ones calling down the thunder... JET SET RADIO! And this is the JSRevolution!
So did you miss us? Well, things have been getting pretty busy around here, as we're getting ready for the new year. Along with debuting a new look, we will have the first mix of the new year, called the "Street Soul Mix"! This special mix will feature a lot of new and upcoming artists, along with a few that you may have heard of, to give you that special feeling about what it's like to have your voice heard. Expect it to be up next week, when we do our first post of 2009!
Now, to conclude this year, we bring to you our last Music of the Week of 2008. This band comes from Tucson, AZ, and this band has a really cool sound. I present to you: Mozart's Sister!
"In Tucson’s alternative rock music scene, dominated by male-fronted bands, Mozart’s Sister provides a breath of fresh air. This rockin’ power trio is nestled somewhere in that sweet spot between female-fronted 90’s alternative rock bands like Belly and Juliana Hatfield, and 80’s pop-rock like the Pretenders and the Motels." - Don Jennings, KXCI
For more information on Mozart's Sister, check out their website and their MySpace.
Oh, don't think we're done yet! We have yet another band for you all! As an added bonus, here's a band from Los Angeles, CA with a very ambient sound. Let's hear it for Lillian's Rose!
Lillian's Rose sprang from the imagination, heart, and efforts of Musician/Song writer Christopher Valentino and Singer/Songwriter Kristine Hawkins. The two artists met in 1999 while performing live in the Orlando music scene.
It wasn't until the summer of 2005 when Chris and Kristine reunited and started collaborating on a project that would eventually evolve into Lillian's Rose. They cultivated melodies, harmonies, and rhythms they felt emanated from a true expression of their combined individuality. In December of 2006 their dedication and perseverance culminated in the completion of their self- produced CD, 11:11.
Lillian's Rose is currently hard at work bringing their music to the stage. With a strong attitude, professionalism, heart and will to succeed, Lillian's Rose continues on their journey to become an influential creative force in the world of music.
For more information on Lillian's Rose, visit their website and their MySpace.
Well, that's it for this year. We hope to see you guys again back in 2009! Keep on blasting those tunes into the new year, be safe, and above all: SHAPE THE FUTURE WITH MUSIC! This is the JSRevolution, over and out!

I know this is usually when I do a new Music of the Week post, but as it is, I'll be leaving for a SoCal vacation. Unfortunately, I'm so caught up with packing that I'm unable to do an artist highlight. But don't worry; I'll be back in two weeks with not only a new highlight, but the newest JSRevolution album, "Street Soul Mix." Be sure to check it out!
Well, I'll be signing off for two weeks now. Make sure you guys keep up the spirit of our group and Shape The Future With Music!
