TNB Raps 001

PODCAST: Featuring JAY-Z, Tyler, The Creator, Vince Staples, Sense & Radius, FYI, Cor Stidak and more

This is the first of a set of regular mix shows I intend to post / host on a regular (ish!) basis.




Many thanks to definitionoffresh.blogspot.co.uk and cheekdeez.blogspot.co.uk who have also shared and posted this mix / podcast!

I have for a few years been toying with the idea of doing more, how can I put it, mixshows / radio show / podcast style curation sets.

I love doing 'Soundcloud Sessions' although it could be argued they are a tad anonymous feeling.

Whilst I never want to be the one 'all in the videos, dancing' as someone so infamously put it I always thought a mixshow with a bit of myself may be nice too.

With Soundcloud being such a cause for concern at the moment this has been even more pertinent and so I have uploaded to Mixcloud the first in a set of regular mix shows I intend to post / host on a regular basis.

TNB Raps 001: JAY-Z, Tyler, The Creator, Vince Staples, Sense & Radius, FYI, Cor Stidak & more

Coming up in the next few weeks I aim to post a mixshow called TNB Beats which will feature as the name suggests hip hop instrumentals, electronica, ambient, wonky, future etc.

I also intend to do a more rock / folk / acoustic show among other things during the next few months.

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…

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…
