Polarity/1 Re-enters Broadjam Top 10 In A Big Way

05-20-2007 | Band News

After a two-year layoff Polarity/1 recently reconnected with indie music site BROADJAM. And already the NY-based composer and recording artist is back on the their charts. "NILESTONES" (from the Speechless CD) has entered their Top 10 for the New York, Northeast, United States and North America regions as well as Production - Mid Tempo and Electronic categories.

"When my kid was eight he wanted to be the next Miles Davis," noted Polar Levine aka Polarity/1. "He could already play "So What" on his grandpas's trumpet. Nilestones sort of has the feel of Davis' "Milestones." Mainly it was an excuse to stick my kid's name in the title. Because I can."

Before his two-year vacation from recording he had placed eight Polarity/1 songs in their Top Ten categories including Best Song All Genres, Alternative, Electronic, Experimental Electronic. Four of those had placed #1 in their respective charts.

Nominated Best Electronica CD by Just Plain Folks, Speechless has licensed songs to the Tribeca-based Battery Dance Company as well as several documentaries including the recently released "In Debt We Trust," a feature-length documentary directed by Emmy Award winner Danny Schechter.

The music of Polarity/1 is exactly what the name suggests: conjoined opposites - a mash-up of new: cutting edge electronica/hip hop/nu-jazz and old: roots music of America (blues, funk, country, early jazz), Brazil (samba, pagode, etc.) and West African groove science. "Polar succeeds in his mission of forcing you to pay attention and not lull into the sounds you 'expect' to hear," noted

Currently, Polarity/1 is best known for political songs which are a regular feature of Amy Goodman's globally syndicated Democracy Now, NPR and many other politics-oriented broadcasts, used in college courses on media and licensed for use in documentaries.

Polarity/1 (aka Polar Levine) is a member of the MusicDish Network, a comprehensive artist development program, leveraging brand development, saturated and relationship marketing, digital distribution and industry outreach to support emerging artists' and bands' careers.
