January 31, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The composer of electronic music known as Puggy Sharps has released his latest official single, titled, “Shift.” The single is the most prominent material to be released from Sharps since his summer 2013 LP record release, “Straight Edge Beat Head.” Both the LP and his latest single, “Shift,” have been released independently on his own popular music label, Chilly Ching Records.
Puggy Sharps is a Canadian artist of EDM, house, hip hop and pop music. He has been composing instrumentals since 2002, at which time he used an IBM PC running the Win '98 operating system. He cites as main artistic influences a broad array of various legends, including David Guetta, Timbaland, Jim Jonston, Luis Resto, Deadmou5, Scott Storch, Eminem, Akon, the Beatles, Avicii, Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Linkin Park, Michael Jackson, and Black Eyed Peas.
The melange of tones this produces in his music is subtly complex, highly textured, and full of era-specific ambiances and undertones which range from '80s retro to dubstep.
“I’ve always had a passion for music since I can remember,” writes Puggy Sharps. “Ever since I heard the Beatles or MC Hammer, it all just sort of grew from there. I've always had an instrument I could play, whether it was a toy keyboard or a guitar. I was always enthused by the melody and harmonics of it all.”
Sharps' first tracks were hip hop and rap beats, which he soon learned were popular and successful on SoundClick charts. Since then he has branched out into house music and EDM, and plans to explore these new avenues fully.
“Eventually I will be producing full songs like Avicii and David Guetta,” writes Puggy Sharps.
Sharps makes his music for the sake of people, rather than for the sake of itself.
“I hope my music inspires people to become their best, whatever it is,” he says of this. “People can master their emotions and try to attain a state of zen where they can make a positive impact on their world because it all starts from within. I feel music is a way for people to release what's inside of them. To know fans from France, Sweden, the US, Canada, Belgium and so many other countries are actually playing Puggy Sharps is quite an honor.”
“Shift” by Puggy Sharps is available online worldwide.
