GRAMMY NOMINEE SPACE COWBOY TO RELEASE “ELECTRO PIONEERS EP” JANUARY 12TH
DIGITAL ONLY EP INCLUDES REMIXES BY ELECTRONIC MUSIC PIONEERS HOWARD JONES, THOMAS DOLBY AND VINCE CLARK
Santa Monica, California, January 7, 2010 – Space Cowboy, widely known as Lady Gaga’s collaborator and DJ, will release his Electro Pioneers EP on January 12th. Available at all digital retailers, this special set includes remixes of songs from his Cherrytree Records/Interscope release Digital Rock Star by some of the mavericks of electronic music – Howard Jones, Thomas Dolby and Vince Clark.
The Electro Pioneers EP track list is: “Devastated” - Howard Jones remix, “My Egyptian Lover” – Thomas Dolby remix and “Falling Down” - Vince Clark remix.
Space Cowboy released Digital Rock Star last fall after coming off the road with Lady Gaga. Initial single “Falling Down” became a club favorite and “I Came 2 Party” followed suit. Space Cowboy has also just been nominated for a GRAMMY award (Album of the Year) for his work on Lady Gaga’s The Fame album. Having co-produced “Starstruck” featuring Flo Rida on The Fame, Space Cowboy went on to co-write/co-produce Lady Gaga’s new songs “Monster” and “So Happy I Could Die” from her newly released The Fame Monster set. Combined sales of just those two albums are already over 8 million units worldwide.
In December, Space Cowboy joined fellow-GRAMMY-nominated electro hip-hop duo LMFAO to sing and perform his own set on the duo’s wildly successful Party Rock tour.
Those familiar with Lady Gaga’s platinum plus album The Fame will know her bold rallying cry from the song “Starstruck,” her duet with Space Cowboy featuring Flo Rida: “Space Cowboy just play that track!” Before his work with Lady Gaga, Space Cowboy was producing and spinning in clubs in London injecting rock influences into a new blend of techno, electro, hip hop and dance, dubbing his new sound “digital rock.” Space Cowboy released his Digital Rock album in the UK with an early incarnation of the song “My Egyptian Lover” which was added to BBC Radio 1. It was a satellite transmission of the Radio 1 feed that caught the attention of Cherrytree Records whose roster also included a new, up-and-coming New York-based artist named Lady Gaga. The label made an introduction and the two hit it off creatively. 2009 saw the release of Space’s US debut Digital Rock Star.
