Central Parks 'East Vs. West'

NEWS: A The New Beatmaker favourite shares thought-provoking concept project

Central Parks dropped a well thought out, cohesive and above all dope concept album recently, 'East Vs. West'.

Parks' has this to say about the project, which was a long time in the making before the recent events in the Ukraine:

'East: The view of the East in a Westerner’s perspective is vague and gilded. That is what I tried to portray through music. We now know of the struggle that the Soviet people lived through, but this is a dated and restricted look into Soviet life. 


West: The heroes of the world, according to themselves. This is a look into Western life during the Cold War. Convincing the public that having more nuclear weapons than the blood thirsty Soviets was of utmost importance.

This is government propaganda at it’s finest.
People needed something to believe in though, and John F. Kennedy was a beacon of hope and change. That legacy was snuffed out as quickly as it began. After a roller coaster ride, for the closing track I wanted to leave a message of hope and peace for the future.'

Of very high standard, atmospheric and thought-provoking,  'East Vs. West' further reinforces Parks' position as one of the most exciting beatmakers out, and is one of the best projects of the year so far.

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.
