Showcase Your Music, 'Your Beats': Phil Phlaymz 'Keep em High'

Our latest welcome addition to 'Your Beats' is Phil Phlaymz.  Phlaymz is a rapper, producer and engineer from Queens, New York. The track he's shared with us is the addictive, meditative 'Keep 'em High'.

The beat has a woozy, down South feel led by a great hypnotic guitar riff.  Phlaymz has a strong vocal delivery which has a nice balance of grit and warmth.

About the creative process, Phlaymz says: 

'I've had the normal ups and downs of anyone pursuing a lifestyle such as this. I live life and write songs about my experiences. I hope that other people will listen to these songs while they live life.'

His set-up includes: Emu X-Board 49; Korg padKontrol; Dell laptop; REAPER; and FL Studio 10.

The track is instantly catchy and it's always good to hear an artist who can craft both beats and bars this well.  Bravo.


Phil has a gig this Monday, June 24th @ Karma Lounge in NY: he is on at 9pm.  Whilst The New Beat Maker can't make it to NY for the gig, we'll be there, rocking out, in spirit.

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

Forthcoming 'Influenced' Podcast

NEWS:  I'm contributing to a new podcast exploring creative connections between legendary and emerging artists Good news alert! I’ve got the great honour and pleasure to be working on a forthcoming music podcast. The podcast, called ‘Influenced’, will trace the path of new artists back to those which came before and reflect on how previous generations of music influenced those which followed their lead, be it directly or indirectly.  Playlists on Spotify and Apple Music will take the listener through our musical time travel in a mixtape fashion. ‘Influenced’ is the brainchild of a great friend of mine, Mark Williams. Mark is even more of a music enthusiast than me and his personality, charisma, enthusiasm and love for music is apparent to anyone who knows him, I’m sure.
