EXCLUSIVE:DRIVEN Straight To The Dance Floor

ArnoldgcoverALBUM MUSIC REVIEW:“DRIVEN Straight To The Dance Floor”
By Esteban “Steven” Escobar, Diversity News
By Linda Satloff Krongold, Proof Reader Special For Diversity News

After listening over and over again for almost three weeks, I finally can write a music album review for “DRIVEN Straight To The Dance Floor” by Arnold G.

Arnold Garcia is his real full name, but as an international dance/pop recording artist, songwriter, dancer and performer, he is well known as “ARNOLD G.”
DRIVEN Straight To The Dance Floor is Arnold G’s 12 tracks complete album. It was released in 2006 by A&G Records, and manufactured and distributed by IRIS Distribution.
DRIVEN Straight To The Dance Floor is a Trance, Dance, House, Electronica, Ghetto and Pop album.
The album CD focuses on giving the listener a message that means something. The listener can perhaps relate to it, and try to drive himself to the next level.

Some of the songs got my attention because of the meaning of the lyrics.

For example, “LAND OF ECSTASY,” at the beginning sounds mysterious and tense, but I got the message that you do not need to take Ecstasy to listen to music.

“GIVE IT TO ME BABY,” is clearly a dance fun song to enjoy when you and your partner are in a good relationship. Another song that provides a message is “ANGEL EYES.” It sounds good and has great rhythm, but it is a sad lonely song that tries to tell and give you a message that Meth (drug) is not the solution to life’s problems.

Clearly, “OCEAN DREAMS” sounds like you have lost somebody that you used to love. For those of you who want to show your ex-partner that you do not love him/her any more, “I’M NOT IN LOVE,” is the perfect song to play or dedicate. It is beautiful and romantic, with great vocals, sounds and an excellent mix.

“FEEL THE BEAT,” “I WANT TO DANCE,” “TRIBAL OF THE WORLD,” “CAN YOU FEEL IT,” and “DANCE TO THE BEAT,” are different house styles. By listening and dancing with these songs you can feel hot and the electric with energy. When you hear the mix of special sounds, and the drums effect, the lyric’s meaning and rhythm will make you dance all over the dance floor. Another song that gives the listener a great message is “OUR RAINBOW.” The meaning and sounds with the excellent background singer Janel Wagner is an amazing duet it brings love and DIVERSITY.

Finally, last but not least, “CARRY ON,” is a pop song written by Arnold G and the music composed by Claudio Collino. The message is for depth and passion. We’ve lost many to terminal illness and seemingly insurable diseases. The song’s sound is clear. Remembrance, awareness, courage and hope are part of the cure. Once again, this has great vocals with a great message. Arnold G’s new singles sneak previews of two songs from his 2008 single CD promos are “I’M FREE,” and “YOU GOT ME HOT.” “I’M FREE,” is a ballad song with a very clear message. It talks about how to help deal with life circumstances and free you for being a victim in general. “YOU GOT ME HOT,” featuring Jezda, is a pop single with four different styles such hip-hop, dance, funky, groovy and house mixes. It doesn’t matter what kind of music you listen to.

What it is important always is the message in it. I wonder if all special sounds can be heard live in a concert because I would love to live that amazing, unforgettable experience. The songs are written and performed by Arnold G. Arnold G is a member of ASCAP. Arnold G hit the right target with his album title “DRIVEN Straight To The Dance Floor,” because it makes me, and will make you, want to sing and dance. I love the special effects, the different songs, the rhythm and most importantly the unique amazing message in each song which makes it a diverse album. I would highly recommend buying his CD because we can learn a lot from his message. His lyrics are so poignant mixed with high-energy music along with his soulful voice; it gives so much meaning to the song. His dance and performance abilities, will take you to the next level of appreciation. I highly recommend buying his concert’s ticket and have an unforgettable lifetime experience. I can feel and see his passion for his music and how he entertains his audiences; he puts so much emotions and feelings to everything he touches. Arnold G’s vocals have so much soulful and smooth rhythm. The only problem is that some of the songs are too long. According to Arnold G, it was purposely done for DJ friendly. DJ needs time to mix one song to another. It explains why the majority of hit songs are from 5 to 7 minutes long. This is why some of the songs are extended. In my opinion, the CD should be formatted to radio ready instead of DJ friendly. It should be kept at a minimum of 4 minutes, but no more than 5 minutes. I have to agree with other music reviewers that a couple of the songs style sounds were alike. I think the robotic voice doesn’t express his natural actual voice. Which I rather hear more of his natural voice. I feel Arnold G voice got melted along with other instrumentals. But, I still love his music and lyrics and I recommend to all of you to buy his music because you will love it. And as the title says DRIVEN Straight To The Dance Floor.

Recently Arnold G’s song “I Want To Dance” was considered for BEST DANCE RECORDING on the 52nd Annual Grammy Ballot. In 2009, Arnold G has been placed on the Official Ballot for the 51st Grammy Awards with 6 entries; Song Of The Year”, Best New Artist, Best Male, Pop Vocal Performance, Best Dance Recording – I’m Not In Love” and “Ocean Dreams”, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration Arnold G featuring Jezda – “You Got Me Hot”, and Composing/Arranging Claudio Collino & DJ Paul E, arranger (Arnold G) for I’m Not In Love. In prior years, Arnold G was placed on the Official Ballot for the 2008 Grammy Awards with 2 entries in the following categories “Record Of The Year” and “Album Of The Year”!

It is at available on all major digital retailers such as: iTunes, Amazon, MSN, Yahoo Music, Napster, Rhapsody, AMIE, XYZ MP3, Dance Records, Hot-MP3 ABOUT ARNOLD G: As for Arnold G, his music consists of Dance, House, Hip Hop and even Ballads. He has performed for audiences ranging from 1000 – 30,000 people in Eastern Europe, Canada and throughout different parts of the USA. He knows how to work large audiences and is a professional that can be trusted to deliver amazing shows to his audiences. On top of the excellent quality of our shows, we have an extensive mailing list a large fan base of about 10,000 personal contacts, as well as our fans from Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, ReverbNation, OurStage and SoundClick. Arnold G, the Grammy Ballot Recording Artist, was born and raised primarily in Camarillo, California. This is where dancing and singing got its’ foothold into Arnold G’s heart. Since his father was a Dancer and his Mother was a Singer, he learned that music could take him anywhere he wanted to go, especially when he became homeless at thirteen. At this young age, Arnold G decided he would not let his circumstances determine his fate, so he continued to go to school, while delivering papers and fixing electronics, just to have enough money for food and clothing. While in high school, no one knew of Arnold G’s situation, because he continued as if nothing was wrong, by joining sports and the choir. As Arnold G became more involved with choir, he would sing and dance at the school performances “The Entertainers”, earning him the title, “Dr. Dance!” Even though, Arnold G loved the attention from his friends, what made him the happiest, was that his mom would miss other obligations, just to come and see him perform. After high school, Arnold G modeled for a while and became a professional dancer for major icons in the Music Industry. But even that didn’t seem to quench Arnold G’s thirst for life and music. He then began singing, after his mother passed away. Arnold G started taking voice lessons and singing at Karaoke bars to build up his confidence. All of a sudden, he started to win contests and sometimes, the audience members would pay the KJ or him to sing special songs. This created a Musical Master. Once Arnold G saw that music was his destiny, he created his first CD, “Driven: Straight to the Dance Floor” and began performing with professional dancers.

Arnold G became The First Male Madonna, owning the stage and his audiences, as he toured all over Eastern Europe, Canada, and the US, including shows at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. His futuristic nature; his sense for entertainment; and his exotic looks are taking him places that he has never been before. Now, looking to tour Japan and to lead the revolution of bridging Japanese Entertainment with America, Arnold G also wants to leave a musical legacy in the US. Arnold G has started AG Entertainment Productions (AGEP) to create all the projects that are floating around in his head. Arnold G’s shows will hit Hollywood and Las Vegas and hopefully in the future, replace the Blue Man Group with his Trance Warrior and Ocean Dreams shows. Arnold G is so passionate about making a difference through music and creating an awareness, that he has become an Activist, that not only helps other Artists, but “Hearts and Minds” on this website explains how he helps people who struggle with health issues; mental, physical or emotional. That’s why he wrote songs, such as “Carry On,” for people with AIDS and cancer. He also wrote “I’m Free,” to help people let go of the past, so they can move forward without the baggage from their prior life challenges. “Angel Eyes,” is another song that he wrote, as he saw how Meth and other drugs took over people’s lives.
But Arnold G’s giving doesn’t even stop there; he also has a soft spot in his heart for children, as he knows that change starts with them. That is how the show “Madam” became the talk of the evening at The International Family Film Festival Awards Ceremony. Arnold G put together this dramatic performance for a non-profit organization called Freshi-films and Freshi-flix, and was a key factor in raising awareness and money for the after school program, which teaches children how to shoot film.
With all that said, you know Arnold G is embarking on new territories of creating music and contributing to society in some big fashion. Keep your eyes posted on this one. Arnold G is worthy of your time and attention.
