Forthcoming 'Influenced' Podcast

NEWS: I'm contributing to a new podcast exploring creative connections between legendary and emerging artists

Good news alert!

I’ve got the great honour and pleasure to be working on a forthcoming music podcast.
The podcast, called ‘Influenced’, will trace the path of new artists back to those which came before and reflect on how previous generations of music influenced those which followed their lead, be it directly or indirectly. 

Playlists on Spotify and Apple Music will take the listener through our musical time travel in a mixtape fashion.

‘Influenced’ is the brainchild of a great friend of mine, Mark Williams. Mark is even more of a music enthusiast than me and his personality, charisma, enthusiasm and love for music is apparent to anyone who knows him, I’m sure.

He’s assembled a great team of panelists and contributors who have an exciting mix of common ground and diversity in musical taste, skill sets and personality.

I’m probably going to be a bit more ‘behind the scenes’ in a research and writing role, but I may pop up on the microphone here and there too.

I’m sure that in the course of my own research I’ll be going down all sorts of rabbit holes, tangents and spin-offs which won’t make it onto the finished podcasts.

So, as well as ofcourse sharing ‘Influenced’ podcast episodes, I’ll be sharing some of my rabbit holes, tangents and spin-off work on thenewbeatmaker.com.  Think of it as ‘Influenced by Influenced’.

Obviously, Covid-19 will probably dictate much of our production schedule, but we're aiming for the first Episode to air on 2 May.  In the meantime, watch this space and follow Mark to stay in the loop.

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 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 i

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 servi
