ALEK SANDAR NAILS IT WITH SMASHING VIDEO CLIP: #YOURLIFEISPORN

A​LEK SANDAR RELEASES NEW SINGLE, “P.O.R.N.” feat. Amanda Lepore
NYC-based electro-pop star, Alek Sandar, takes a stand on social media with his latest single, “P.O.R.N.” This club-ready track features transgender advocate, performer and socialite celebrity, Amanda Lepore. This pairing was inspired by Lepore’s lifestyle of transforming herself into the ideal looking woman with a perfect shape. The aim of the track, according to Sandar, is to show the world that through our self-absorption and public self-expression on social media, life becomes pornography. As the first generation to have this in-your-face pressure to get “likes” and “followers,” this single seeks to open eyes on many levels and hints that society is missing the real message behind music and behind life because we’re all too busy comparing the stats, rather than creating a dialogue.

Ocean – The Remixes available now
Summer 2014 was pretty hot, and although it’s almost over, Alek Sandar seeks to continue the party by releasing a remix bundle for his song „Ocean“. Fans and followers will dive into new styles and rediscover Alek’s emblematic tune „My love is deep like the ocean“ in a heavy bass-driven EDM Remix, a dub step remix produced with Bulgarian hip-hop star Angel Kovachev (from the smash-hit duo „Angel & Moisey“), an EDM instrumental version for the night clubs and a summer dance radio version of the song.
Weeks ago, Alek also presented a Bulgarian version of the song called Dai mi da the vliubia. It is astonishing that the young artist produced both the audio and video for Ocean.

Alek premiered the EDM Version during the gala finale of the chinese reality TV show CA Model Competition at Terminal 5 in New York a couple of days ago. Earlier this summer, German fans went crazy during Alek’s performance at the SommerLochFestival in Brunswick, Germany. Clubs in Washington DC, Chicago and Sofia, Bulgaria, further hosted the young musician this summer.
In addition to his work as recording artist, Alek continues to work as a music producer for international artists. This season, Bulgarian artists Galin, Kamelia, Krum and Desislava released or are about to release singles produced by the Bulgarian-born New Yorker.

You can get „Ocean – The Remixes“ on iTunes Amazon Beatport and all other digital music stores.

Andrea and Alek Sandar Speak Out: “The Human Rights Situations in Ukraine and Russia are Unacceptable”
The Eastern Europeans raise awareness of human rights violations, support LGBT community

On thursday, the World Day of Social Justice, Two well-known Eastern European pop artists, Andrea and Alek Sandar, have released a new music video called “Peaceful Place” in response to recent human rights violations in Ukraine and Russia. Using information provided by the Human Rights Watch and Human Rights House and footage provided by Reuters, the music video calls for delivery human rights for Ukraine and LGBT equality and non-discrimination for Russia. “We want to show love to our Eastern European brothers and sisters during this political uproar”, say the artists. „Ukraine and Russia are moving back to a more totalitarian state and we want to make a statement that this is wrong“.

To raise the awareness of the issues, the video illustrates topics, such as discrimination, freedom of expression, and education on the acceptance of the LGBT community with children and teenagers in an abandoned Roma slum neighborhood in Sofia, Bulgaria. The video clip shows Andrea and Alek Sandar holding a rainbow flag surrounded by Roma children. “If we did this in Russia, we would be in jail now”, says Alek in an interview with national Bulgarian media. Andrea and Alek Sandar are from Bulgaria, which has historical and cultural closely allied with former Soviet Bloc. Recently, an anti-gay-propaganda-law was proposed in Bulgaria by one of their leading parties. With „Peaceful Place“, Alek and Andrea aim to open up the international communication on the issue and contribute to a more tolerance towards the LGBT community in Bulgaria.

The “Peaceful Place” song begins and ends with calls for action: “It’s time for a change” and “It is our divine duty to make this earth a peaceful place”. The release of the video “Peaceful Place” marks the beginning of a nationwide campaign through events and media appearances in support of human rights in Bulgaria.

Alek Sandar – The First Bulgarian Artist with a VEVO Channel

Alek Sandar is the first Bulgarian artist with an official channel at VEVO, the video hosting service operated by Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Google.
Having an inspiring and motivational year filled with international performances and many multinational music projects, Alek Sandar has finished work on his debut EP “Meteors”. The mini-album will be released digitally globally on January 31st. The “Meteors” EP features five compositions written by Alek and was produced by the Manhattan-based producer crew Boyplay. The EP includes award-winning hits “It Ain’t Over” and “You and Me” with Bulgarian icon Dess (a.k.a. Desislava) and a duet with Balkan pop sensation Andrea.


People in Germany can view the video on VEVO only
The impressive video of the pilot song “Say That You Love Me” was shot in Manhattan, New York City. “I was very excited to shoot on these locations. The female model flew in all the way from London to make out with me,” Alek jokes. By shooting in places such as the world famous Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue or a Parkview Developers Penthouse with breathtaking views on Central Park South, Alek Sandar proves that independent artists can also record on locations that are usually exclusive only to multi-million-dollar Hollywood productions. “Sometimes you should dream big, as most things are possible, especially if you are surrounded by the right team of enthusiasts and people who believe in your magic.” The multitalented young musician co-directed and produced the video himself.

After performing in Las Vegas, London, Berlin, New York and at the Vienna Life Ball earlier this summer, Alek Sandar dedicated the hottest weeks of the year to his Bulgarian fans. The headliner of the first DOMA Art Festival in Sofia teamed up with Eastern European superstar Dess (Desislava) for a second time to record and shoot one of the big summer hits this year in Bulgaria, Alek Sandar – You and Me (feat. Dess & Boyplay). The single was released internationally last week and is now available in all global online stores, including Beatport, iTunes, Amazon and many more. The remix bundle includes progressive house, deep house remixes and a Bulgarian version of the song. “The song was adapted very quickly by the Bulgarian Media and a lot our Bulgarian fans asked for a Bulgarian version. If they want it – they get it”, Alek Sandar says. To make the package compete, Alek recorded an unplugged version on the rooftop of an elite hotel in central Sofia.

In July 2013, celebrities and media from all over the country gathered to celebrate the video premiere of “You and Me” at the famous Cacao Beach in the Sunny Beach Resort. New York avant-garde legend Yozmit flew in from London to pop bottles with Dess, Alek, Balkan Superstar Andrea, and her boyfriend, European champion boxer Kubrat Pulev.
“We had a Yacht, fire effects, rented a helicopter and shot with the best professionals from the entire country. Dess and Alek are true pioneers in Bulgarian pop music and deserve the very best”, Atanas Lozanov, producer of the video at Flashmedia, adds.

In 2012, Alek and Dess took the Bulgarian charts by storm with their duet It Ain’t Over. The single got airplay in various European countries and the USA, forming the beginning of a wave of music projects between the two artists. You And Me and Baby (a solo song by Dess produced by Alek Sandar) are follow-up dance projects targeted to an international audience, while Alek and Dess also prepare other songs for the Bulgarian market.
At the same time Alek is currently producing music for Balkan Divas Kamelia and Andrea as well as other international names to be announced soon.

Alek is currently in New York for the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, where he premiered “You and Me” to the American audience in the Soho Grand Hotel. Alek’s appearances at thе Calvin Klein, Burberry, DNKY, Ralph Rucci & Long Tran fashion shows and after parties were followed closely by the Bulgarian media and evoked a wave of euphoria among his fans.

While You and Me is just taking off on a global level, Alek Sandar already shot video material for two of his next singles in New York. “I can’t wait to share them with the public, but it will probably take a couple of months to release these songs”, Alek concludes.
