Sir Ivan aka Peaceman is a Dance music artist and peace-centric philanthropist, he releases his album ‘Life’ to support Ukraine, all the money he made with this amazing project will be donated to the people from Ukraine who are suffering the devastation of war given the recent invasion of Ukraine. The tracks are composed of a message of tolerance and peace, the things the world is losing in these times.
Sir Ivan’s passion for spreading peace, love, and equality to all humankind stems from losing 59 relatives in the Holocaust and hearing those stories from his father, Siggi B. Wilzig, a survivor of the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. Those stories are detailed in his father’s recently released #1 Amazon Bestselling biography Unstoppable: Siggi B. Wilzig’s Astonishing Journey from Auschwitz Survivor and Penniless Immigrant to Wall Street Legend, by author Joshua M. Greene.
Peaceman has remade iconic 60s and early 70s anti-war and peace songs into electronic dance music. He also has donated all net proceeds of his music to charity. This is why he’s decided to release his latest album exclusively on Soundcloud for all to stream/ download FREE. Just as the lyrics in those 60s and 70s anti-war songs inspired the protests that contributed to ending the Vietnam war, Sir Ivan believes they can have the same positive effect today to stop the war in Ukraine and prove again to the world that “the pen is mightier than the sword.” These songs can be used to rally the peace-loving people in Russia to continue their protests against their government’s evil behaviour.
The new album ‘Life’ includes classic songs like John Lennon’s “Imagine” remixed by Marc Stout, Barry McGuire’s “Eve of Destruction” remixed by Riddler, Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind” remixed by Smash Mode, ”Get Together” by The Youngbloods, remixed by Chris Cox, “In the Year 2525” by Zager and Evans, remixed by Maurizio Ruggerio, and Sir Ivan’s original renditions of “Kumbaya” remixed by Christopher Lawrence, and “Hare Krishna” remixed by Tony Moran & Warren Rigg.
It is a mix of 18 tracks over 60 minutes, some of the tracks born as a result of a competition Sir Ivan made during the pandemic for those DJs who were unemployed awarded more than $10,000 to the winners picked by judges Paul Oakenfold, Bassjackers, Exodus, DJs From Mars, and Tenishia.
