Showcase Your Music, 'Your Beats': 'Feuertrunken' by This is Ethmo



And now, for something completely different.  This Is Ethmo is an exciting mix of musical styles: dance, rock, ambient and much more.  I'll let the guys introduce themselves:

This is the debut EP by the mysterious St Albans 3 piece - This Is Ethmo. They formed in January 2013 after crash landing on this planet called Earth whilst on a cultural expedition from the dwarf planet UB313. They assumed the pronounceable names of Johnny Man, Absalom and X and are enjoying mixing up this planet's many musical genres whilst creating a new style of their own ETHMO. They have just 12 months left on this planet before the mothership returns to collect them. Will they change planet Earth for the better? WIll their music be the music of future generations? Will they unite our disparate planet with the rest of the Universe? Stay tuned and don't forgot the word is ETHMO. This Is Ethmo
I love the range of influences and the sense of fun on 'Feuertrunken'.  The sound is refreshing but at the same time takes me back to some of the classics from the late 80's and early 90's era of groups like The KLF and Utah Saints.  This sounds to me like the type of stuff that the late great John Peel would big up and the video takes me back to a time before the Hype Williams age of million dollar videos. I especially like the popping and locking puppet.  The myriad of styles and sense of fun is expanded even further on their newly released EP of the same name.  I strongly advise you to check it out: Dance-meets-death metal-meets-Middle Eastern-meets-mad-funky funkiness. Bravo!

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below).  It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially  when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is. The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo. Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop. Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies. It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs. Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which i

Objects In Orbit 'Panoramas'

REVIEW :  The New Beatmaker favourite changes his name, hones his craft on potential best album of 2020 Producer, Sound Engineer, Musician and Videographer Objects In Orbit has been a favourite of the site since 2013. Whilst there is not a single bad project in the catalogue of the artist formerly known as Evil Alex, he has evolved and improved almost constantly from one project to the next. He is a master of sonic suspense with many of his projects sounding perfectly at home in an art installation or art-house cinema. His trademark style mixes hip hop born sample-based techniques and 4/4 beat composition along with jazz influenced time signatures and experimentation. He often incorporates eerie, industrial stylings and at times dissonant tones.  Whilst predominantly instrumental, Objects In Orbit finely weaves into layers of musical samples either long stretches of dialogue, which make the listener feel as though they are eavesdropping on private conversation, or snip
