Soundcloud Sessions 4

PODCAST: A playlist of beats from J Rawls and Masta Ace, Mecca:83, Tall Black Guy and more 

Wow, has it been a month already?

This latest session includes some of the finest in underground hip hop from our most recent interviewee J Rawls and Masta Ace; as well as a classic from LuxDeville.

Elsewhere there is future RnB from IAMNOBODI and Ile Flottante; some great house from 3rd Culture Kid, glitchy greatness from IGLOOGHOST and an epic jazz tune from another The New Beatmaker favourite, Bill Laurance.

There's also the winners of House Shoes' recent J Dilla electric piano flip contest, Shash'U and Tall Black Guy, who show the diversity and creativity of the beatmaking culture by taking the same sample source in completely different directions.  Congratulations to the pair of them.

And, as if all of that wasn't enough, there's even more heat from M-Phazes (as Camden Arc)Mecca:83Central ParksK15, Sev Seveer, Radius and Sombrero Galaxy, wooh!

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.

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.
