Elliot Gann, Psy.D. (Today's Future Sound) Interview: Using Hip Hop and Beatmaking to Empower Youth



Elliot Gann, Psy.D. (Today's Future Sound) talks favourite hardware, software and artists; and using hip hop and beatmaking to empower young people worldwide.


Regular readers will likely know that I am very partial to the work of Today's Future Sound.

Today's Future Sound is a charity that introduces young children to beatmaking and hip hop culture, in effort to inspire positive change in their lives and communities.

Today’s Future Sound is a Nonprofit based in the Bay Area, yet its work has spread across the globe, as far afield as New Zealand and Senegal.

At the end of last year Elliot Gann, Psy.D. Executive Director, Psychologist and Music Producer/DJ at Today's Future Sound, took time out of his very busy schedule to discuss his favourite hardware, software, artists and highlights of the year.

Many, many thanks to Elliot Gann and keep up the fantastic work to all involved!

New Music Review: Georgel: ‘Colibrí’

'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.

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.
