Polarity/1 signs up to MusicDish Network Development Program

MusicDish, LLC, an Internet music magazine publisher and artist marketing/development firm, announced the addition of NY-based composer and recording artist Polarity/1 to its MusicDish Network roster. MusicDish will provide full online management support, including brand development and marketing, as well as seeking licensing and business opportunities for his extensive CD catalog, including "Speechless," "Heavy Meadow" and "Prettier Than You".

Polarity/1 was recently included in the "MusicDish CD Sampler" which was pitched to labels, publishers, distributors from across the globe at MIDEM 2007, and was also represented at Canadian Music Week, held at the Fairmount Royal York Hotel in Toronto from March 7-10.

The music of Polarity/1 is exactly what the name suggests: conjoined opposites - a mash-up of new: cutting edge electronica/hip hop/nu- jazz and old: roots music of America (blues, funk, country, early jazz), Brazil (samba, pagode, etc.) and West African groove science. "Polar succeeds in his mission of forcing you to pay attention and not lull into the sounds you 'expect' to hear," noted

After a few years of playing percussion in samba bands at S.O.B.'s and other venues, Polar landed in hip hop which combined his interests in grooves, samples and wordplay into one form. He and rapper D.A.V. became Medicine Crew. In the aftermath of 9/11, Polar was asked to do a remix for Nile Rodgers' "We Are Family Project" released on a compilation by Tommy Boy Records.

His experience of 9/11 which was perpetrated in his neighborhood, led to a collaboration with multi-platinum Pakistan rock band Junoon resulting in their hit song 'No More'. Polarity/1's CD, 'Speechless', which was nominated Best Electronica Album by Just Plain Folks, included four instrumentals choreographed by New York's Battery Dance Company in November 2006.

Currently, Polarity/1 is best known for political songs which are a regular feature of Amy Goodman's globally syndicated Democracy Now, NPR and many other politics-oriented broadcasts, used in college courses on media and licensed for use in documentaries, including, Danny Schechter's "WMD: Weapons of Mass Distraction" and "In Debt We Trust: America Before The Bubble Bursts."
