Naked Music began life as a production company back in 1992, when founders Dave Boonshoft and Jay Danes scored immediate underground success with releases on indies such as OM, Francois Kevorkian's Wave imprint, and UKs XL records. The Naked Sound was born at the intersection of dance, soul and electronic music.
A string of high profile remixes followed with artists as diverse as Sade, Kelis, Maxwell, and Britney Spears (to name but a few) getting the "Naked Treatment".
It quickly became apparent to them that true creative freedom could only be achieved by starting their own label, and so Naked Music Recordings was founded in 1998. Their mission: dance music from a diverse roster of up and coming artists.
Over multiple 12 releases and albums, they've tried to set a new standards of captivating songwriting and top-notch production in the world of electronic music, steadily refining a sexy, sophisticated sound that's distinctly Naked.
Their compiliations, and branding became the often emulated standard for an entire marketing movement. The Nude Dimensions, Carte Blanche, and Lost on Arrival series are the benchmark for their genre.
The next stage in their evolution gives center stage to some of the artists who have helped define the Naked sound from the beginning. New releases from Aya and Gaelle are already setting the standard, and further refining and reinterpreting their musical mission. The near future will bring new full-length from Lisa Shaw and Bluesix, and some nice surprises too.
They hope you'll join them for the trip.
