Handle Records is proud to share that today you can stream Jakarta‘s Life Is Flowing on all major streaming services, including Spotify. Other streaming and download services include iTunes and Apple Music.

Jakart‘s long awaited debut album features 10 new songs recorded by a group of International recording artists who have collaborated with input and creativity from their individual locations. The tracks are produced, mixed and mastered by bassist and Handle Records founder Joe Dolan.

This album is what I plan to be the first of many,” shares Joe Dolan. “Vocalist and songwriter Alice Leonz is hands down, the most talented vocalist I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She has the ability to create the right tone for any song in any genre. What’s more, she is a very talented multi-instrumentalist. Keys, drums and that voice!

This album features 11 contributing artists who have mastered their own instruments and developed their own sense of creativity that makes each of the songs a unique creation. It’s an effort never tried in the past, and proves that a global community of artists can create something equally as impressive as 5 people in a room.

These artists have all met and collaborated through the website Wikiloops, a genius development created by Richard Kaiser in Germany, a music and computer enthusiast who in 2010 developed Wikiloop PHP programming into a community base for musical collaboration. The end result has created literally tens of thousands of creations that expand the potentials of music in virtually every genre. It is also how Jakarta came to be.

Joe Dolan says, “I don’t know that this is something that’s ever been done. A dozen people who’ve never met in person or worked together before just jumping in and adding their personal take on a piece of music. That’s the power of collaboration in the music community.”
