Sippin’ Bitter Bubbly Podcast

PODCAST: Future beats, garage and more, courtesy of Up In The Ear blog

I have been spending a lot of time on the excellent Up In The Ear blog recently and, what do you know, Up In The Ear's Khalid Golding was kind enough to let The New Beatmaker share his recent mix of Future Beats, Bounce, Bassline, Garage and more with you (originally posted here).



This mix will especially resonate with those of you getting your party on this weekend.

Says Khalid about the mix:

'I’ve dug deep into the crevices of the interweb and this is what I came up with...Starting off with two of my homegrown faves, Preditah and Flava D, it takes a trip to the West Coast and journeying through the USA, Eurasia, Australasia, South America and Scandinavia before Ellie Ingram brings home the [turkey] bacon.

I find that there’s so much great music out there -so much awesome combinations to create awesome positive [whoa hippy alert] vibrations...I can only describe it as a musically enriching experience because these tracks, in my opinion, lead the way both rhythmically and melodically in comparison with what you may know and love.'
Up In The Ear has quickly become a go-to site for all things music, culture and society.

Some final extra words from Khalid:

'A lifestyle blog with a primary focus on music, and a secondary focus on the culture and style surrounding it. Up In The Ear prides itself on it's core values, every action is performed in alignment with the brand motto "Style over fashion, substance overall", which means to celebrate your individuality and uphold integrity.'

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…
