Handle Records is proud to share that today you can stream Jakarta‘s Listen To Your Heart on all major streaming services, including Spotify. Other streaming and download services include iTunes and Apple Music.
Jakart‘s fourth full length album features 11 new songs recorded by the International recording artists who have collaborated with input and creativity from their individual locations to create this amazing musical adventure. The tracks are produced, mixed and mastered by bassist and Handle Records founder Joe Dolan.
“I am astounded that this fourth album is equally, if not more impressive than even the first three we’ve made,” shares Joe Dolan. “Alice Leonz is a wealth of talent and expression like no other. She is simply the most talented vocalist I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Her ability to create the right tone for any song in any genre makes the Jakarta project one of the most incredible supergroups ever assembled.”
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. Jakarta has proven time and time again 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.”
