AJ Unity's Multi-Cultural Style Driven by the Seductive Scent of 'Sweet Roses'Japanese Vocalist Naomi Suzuki and Austrian-Born Producer Philipp Moll Join Forces in London to Create Their Hypnotic Trance-Pop-Electronica Debut (March 19, 2012)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/19/12 -- Many artists and bands tout the idea that their music is multi-cultural and promotes the spirit of global cooperation, but Naomi Suzuki and Philipp Moll -- the multi-talented duo collectively known as AJ Unity (www.ajunity.com) take that concept to joyful extremes with their pop, trance, alternative and electronica driven full-length debut album Sweet Roses.
Suzuki, a model, actress, singer, presenter, producer and songwriter who recently reached #12 on the UK Club charts with a solo recording, is from Japan. While music fans know her voice from her dance music or the theme songs she sings for Japanese anime shows, film buffs may recognize her from her for her memorable nude scene as Hugh Grant's girlfriend in "Bridget Jones's Diary!"
Moll, a renowned bassist and producer who has toured worldwide and supported artists like Jamie Cullum, Simply Red and k.d. lang, is originally from Austria and studied music in Munich and at Paul McCartney's Institute for Performing Arts in Liverpool. He currently lives in Bern, Switzerland.
Suzuki and Moll discovered an immediate creative chemistry when they met at an industry event in London in 2007. They were quickly commissioned to write a piece to accompany a photo and fashion exhibit based on the life of Princess Diana in Japan. Upon the positive reception given to "Rose," their first composition, the Japanese production company that hired them to compose for the exhibition sponsored the immediate recording of an album.
Dubbing themselves AJ Unity (A for Austria, J for Japan), the duo created the project in six weeks using Moll's home studio in London. A true 21st century production involving numerous intercontinental file transfers, the nine tracks were co-produced by renowned Norwegian producer Rune Langhelle from his studio in Bergen, Norway.
A national radio campaign is underway by Howard Rosen Promotion Inc. (www.howiewood.com) for their debut single "Jupiter," and is currently at #29 on the FMQB AC Chart. The track also spent several weeks at #1 on the Top 20 chart of Kings of Spins -- a popular tastemaker website that tracks and markets dance, urban, rock, acid jazz and other related genres.
