Showcase Your Music, 'Your Beats': Dr.Goom 'Beat Tape 2012'


The Chicago love just keeps on coming.  
In the words of DJ and producer Dr.Goom:

'Beat Tape 2012 is a compilation of my favorite random beats found sitting in my computer over the last year. hope you enjoy!'

As evident by the artwork and his blogger page (which is where I sourced the 'cats making music' images from) Dr.Goom doesn't take himself too seriously. 

This charismatic sense of fun and experimentalism is carried over to much of the tape.  'Whisper' is jolly, reggae - inspired, electronic pop.  'Us' is an uptempo hip hop beat.

As is to be expected with a collection crafted from random beats sat on the hard drive, there's a schizophrenic feel to the project: many of the beats hint at ideas not fully seen through to the end.

With that being said, there's a palpable sense of promise on tracks like my favourite, 'Standing in the Sand', which is a more fully-realized idea with a surprisingly melancholy, sensual feel.

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.

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 is potentially painful to an earbud wearing listener.

Admittedly I am very sensitive to certain high pitch frequencies.

However, to remedy this I wo…

Georgel ‘Colibrí’

REVIEW: 'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making

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 Georgel’s ‘Colibri’.


A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter. 
‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch.

The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood musical or Broadway show as it would be on your favourite music streaming service.


A slice of swag…
