Carlo Muscat 'The Sound Catalogues - Vol. 1'

NEWS: New project from classy saxophonist Carlo Muscat and friends

Featured recently on 'Soundcloud Sessions' Episode Eight with the wonderful 'Totoro', Carlo Muscat is one of The New Beatmaker's breakthrough artists of 2014.

His project 'The Sound Catalogues - Vol. 1' is one of the highlights of the year.  What better way to learn more about it, than by checking in with the man himself?

Says Carlo about the project:

'The Sound Catalogues' (2013) - A recent artistic concept with the objective of compiling various volumes utilising music composition and performance as the primary artistic medium, recording inspiring events, figures, eras, inventions, and more.

The first volume is titled 'Extraordinary Episodes'. In an attempt to flee the prevailing digital age, this album takes into account a series of historic events. By creating a specific set of jazz compositions, the emotions related to each event are explored and allowed to re-surface. The music will transmit these emotions.

The line-up for this album features saxophonist Carlo Muscat, guitarist Sandro Zerafa, pianist Joe Debono, bassist Mátyás Szandai, drummer Lionel Boccara and guest trumpeter Daniele Raimondi.'

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.

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’.

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 servi
