Signs & Wonders


Naked Music began life as a production company back in 1992, when founders Dave Boonshoft and Jay Denes scored immediate underground success with releases on indies such as OM, Francois Kevorkian’s Wave imprint, and UK’s XL Records. The “Naked Sound” was born at the intersection of dance, soul and electronic music.

A string of high profile remixes followed with artists as diverse as Sade, Kelis, Maxwell, and Britney Spears (to name a few) getting the “Naked Treatment”.


It quickly became apparent that true creative freedom could only be achieved by starting our own label and following our own muse. Hence, Naked Music Recordings was founded in 1998. Our mission: to release forward-thinking music that defies easy categorization.
Our first CDs were compilation releases, generally leaning heavily on our own artists recordings combined with various singles we bought from independent artists. They were extremely popular and trendsetting – within a year many other companies were trying to emulate our graphic style and vibe. We soon grew tired of the format, it was time to move on.


Around 2000 we entered into a joint venture with EMI/Virgin. Signed a few wonderful artists and made their records. Blue Six, Lisa Shaw, Aya, Miguel Migs, Gaelle, and a number of others. It was nice (being polite here!) for a while, but we really enjoy our indie freedom and are glad to have it back.


Over multiple 12” releases and albums, we’ve tried to keep a consistently high standard of songwriting with top-notch production while steadily refining our basic aesthetic sense. As many have noted, we don’t put out a lot of product, but when we do it’s worth the wait.


Many of our CDs have achieved have a lasting “cult” status and we’re very proud of this. These days we make what we please in a completely unconstrained manner. Although the industry is in a highly volatile state, we are blessed to be able to continue to do our thing on our own terms. It’s often at times of great upheaval that really unique and beautiful things occur. We intend to be a part of this transformation as long as possible.

It’s been awhile, four years actually,  since we heard from the ethereal magic from producer, Jay Denes and his Naked Music sounds,  entitled Blue Six. “Signs & Words” just recently dropped and fans of Blue Six will not be disappointed as the ethereal grooves live on with the benefit of live guitars,  and heavy bass that fuse together taking the listener into a blissful galaxy of seduction. Additionally, cult fans of singer, Aya will rejoice in the return of the elusive vocalist who graces, “Signs & Wonders” throughout the entire album, including the first single and video, “Anhedonia”. Think, Grace Jones meets Kate Bush on this mysterious and tantalizing favorite track.

Welcomed vocalists return on “Signs & Wonders” like Tabitha Fair and Catherine Russell adding their unique, effortless and subtle vocals to the timeless music Mr. Denes has  managed to create over the course of 20 years. In a recent Canadian radio interview, Denes said he really doesn’t make music anymore for big bucks, as the industry as we all know as changed dramatically over the years. He produces music he likes for the passion of it, which could explain the lapse in time fans have to wait for new music by the producer. He did indicate that after “Sing & Wonders” , he would start working on the long awaited Aya album since 2004′s “Strange Flower”.

As the entire ten tracks are a hypnotic and indulgent collection for an album, listeners will revel in the opening track, “Mass Transit”, “Anhedonia”, “Milky Way”, “Star People”, “Nothing But Time” and “Jet Black”. Watch the first video below off of “Signs & Wonders” featuring Aya and Download the album on iTunes:
