Detroit, MI – Independent, hybrid electronic-rock artist Klayton has released Chapter 04 of the Celldweller sophomore album Wish Upon A Blackstar via pre-launch at the FiXT Store (available now), with a worldwide release coming on July 19th from all major digital retailers.
Chapter 04 of Wish Upon A Blackstar is the last digital chapter to be put out before the release of the full album. No prior tracks express Klayton’s knack for hybridizing genres as well as these two songs. “I Can’t Wait” melds stuttering dubstep basslines, dynamic percussion, precision glitch edits, and the signature Celldweller guitar attacks and infectious vocal deliveries. “Gift For You”, on the other hand, is a departure in its simplicity. Downtempo bass carries the tune, with flourishes of dubstep wobble, while sparse and airy guitar notes add accent in between Klayton’s subdued verses.
In conjunction with the new music release, Celldweller has launched a remix contest for “I Can’t Wait” on FiXT Remix (www.fixtremix.com). The public contest is free to enter and promises a $500 cash prize to 1st Place, $250 cash prize to 2nd Place & $100 cash prize to 3rd Place – all personally chosen by Klayton himself, from all entries submitted by the September 30th, 2011 deadline. Selected mixes will also appear on a FiXT Remix CD & Digital compilation.
