‘Sometimes God will put tests in front of you…’

which is exactly what happened this year to UK

artist Snybz aka MC Snye-B. One test after another

is what he recently experienced.

10 www.AudationMagazine.com

It started one night after one of his performances. He

received a call from his sister who informed him that his

father had a heart attack and was in the hospital not doing

well. As he was on the freeway rushing to the hospital, he

experienced car trouble which caused him to be stranded

aside the road waiting for a tow. After a few hours, he was

finally able to get to the hospital to see his father. It was 32

days before his father was able to come home.

A few short days after his father’s heart attack his young son

fell ill. He became dehydrated and lethargic, he had to be

rushed to emergency. His son was admitted to hospital for

three long and scary days. Not long after that he experienced

the dissolution of his relationship with his son’s mother.

All of this had a significant impact on his own wellbeing. He

found himself thrust into a battle with depression. He was

able to seek help and find solace in the support from his

friends and family. He was also able to let his feelings out

through his pen, writing his own story in ‘Exhale’.

He then tried to take a step back and see what all this was

trying to teach him. What was the lesson he could learn from

all this? He determined that he needed to be mindful of what

he needed. For a lack of a better way of putting it, self-care/


His advice to others is to remember that pain is only

temporary. If you spend too much time focusing on the

negative, you will miss seeing all your blessings. You will miss

the silver lining. When life gives you punches, get right back

up and punch back ten times harder! This is exactly what he

has done. He has move forward making positive

improvements, even starting his own business!

He is optimistic that his creative juices have been rekindled

and we will see more from him soon.

My Crazy Summer

The last weeks of the summer were quite hectic for me, 10 flights in less

than 2 weeks, from north to south, from east to west.


29 August: My flights to the most northern part of Norway, Kirkenes… I

have been asked to play at the club night for Grenselos Festivalen, the

biggest festival of the north of Norway. It takes a full day to get all the

away up north from Amsterdam to Oslo, from Oslo to Kirkenes, with a 5

hour stopover in Oslo. I always love to go for a walk there and check out

the town and nature. Weird detail, at the end of my set, from 23:00 to

02:00 I step outside and it's still light. I play here at least twice a year and

they always take great care of me. Amazing food, champagne and a

weekend full of fun and crazy Norwegians! I flew back on Sunday.

3 - 5 September: I am home to work on new music and do the stuff I need

to do at home.

12 www.AudationMagazine.com


6 September: It's time to fly again. This time I play in Kyrenia in the

northern (Turkish) part of Cyprus. This is a big gig, in the famous Cage

club, voted as the best club of Turkey and North Cyprus. I am headliner

on the Friday and it's always very exciting to play here. Normally I stay at

the hotel that belongs to the club, but this time I stayed at my friend's

place. He has a great house with pool, BBQ and a Playstation. I arrive on

Thursday night and I kicked his ass with FIFA a few times.

7 September: During the day we spent most of the time in and around the

pool with a few more friends and a few cold beers. Around 22:00 we

hook up with the managers for a really nice dinner with way too much

food. My set starts at 01:30 till 03:00 and it was amazing! The famous

AKON came over to check out my set as well.

8 September: More good food, more FIFA, more cold beers and more pool


9 September: In the morning I fly back home, with a short stopover in

Athens. Another weekend full of great memories.

10 September: I can rest and prepare for the next trip: Ibiza!



11 September: Another flight! This time Ibiza. I've got the good news that

my friend will join me on this trip. We booked an extra day and a car, so

we could enjoy some of the island as well. After a very turbulent flight

we arrive at Ibiza around 13:00, time to pick up the car and check in at

the hotel. We have the rest of the day to chill and we do some great

sightseeing like Cafe del Mar sunset, Mambo and some nice beaches. My

set starts at midnight at the legendary Es Paradis, I played some of my

new tracks and it all went well. The next day we had a full day of free

time and we spent most of it on a few beaches. At night we had VIP

tickets for Armin in Hï, so we went to see the show. Great thing he played

my new track during his set.

I am looking forward to next summer already!

An Introduction To Mac Miller

After the passing from apparent drug overdose at his studio city home In

California in September of Pittsburgh born and raised rapper, artist and

producer Mac Miller, it seems fitting to say a few words about him. As a

relatively late starter to Mac Miller, I’ll admit I only became aware of Mac's

work after the release of the excellent laid-back groovy track ‘Dang’ featuring

Anderson.Paak. I soon realised this young 20-something year old white rapper

had a lot more about him than just rapping. Producing under the name Larry

Fisherman amongst other pseudonyms, real name Malcolm McCormick could

play bass, lead guitar and drums. He was an excellent keyboardist, produced

his own beats and sang, all by his early twenties.

In 2010, he signed a record deal with Pittsburgh-based indie record label

Rostrum Records and released his debut album ‘Blue Slide Park’ which was

released on November 8, 2011. In July 2011 the title was announced, having

been named after a section of Frick Park (which is known as Blue Slide Park) in

Pittsburgh. The park section is at the corner of Beechwood Blvd and Nicholson

Street which is just two blocks from Taylor Allderdice High School where Miller

attended, and was his childhood hang out.

Many people in Europe only really knew Mac Miller from dating Ariana Grande

but had he not passed on 6th September 2018, with his ever constantly

evolving music style, Mac Miller could do it all. And, I’m sure he would have

undoubtedly gone on to be a massive worldwide artist having already

achieved house-hold name status in the USA. But, unfortunately it seems Mac

Miller finally lost his battle with drugs, depression and demons which he

talked openly about in many interviews. Even with all his problems, it did not

stop Mac releasing five studio albums before his untimely death at the age of

just 26. He has since received countless tributes from other artists in his field

including Travis Scott, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, Maroon

5, Elton John and many more.

I’ve personally been producing and realising many records since 1991 and I’m

astonished how much Mac Miller learned and contributed to the music world

by his mid 20’s. A true talent and engaging character that will be sorely

Four years ago, legendary DJ/producer Grant Nelson

launched a new radio station. Little did he know that it

would not only be a radio station but would also

become a family of it’s own!



18 www.AudationMagazine.com

It's the 1st of September. 4 years ago today I launched something a little bit

different, never expecting it to become what it has today. The concept was to

provide a platform and space for the music I loved without having to resort to

any form of advertising, sponsors, click bait, customer tracking / analytics or

any other kind of stuff that I felt (at the time, and even more so now) was

ruining the once free and open internet.

I spent months going through mixtapes, literally listened to thousands of

them from DJs all over the world, searching for what I considered to be some

of the best undiscovered (in some cases) talent out there. We dropped our first

beats at 00:00 on the 1st September 2014 and have been non-stop ever since.

Over a hundred DJs from every corner of the planet and 4 years later and I

couldn't be any prouder of the D3EP family. Not just for their skills and music

selection and not just for their endless dedication to deliver the best of the

best to our ear holes week in, week out, but also for the incredible world-wide

community that they have created through their raw passion for the music.

I honestly can't thank everybody involved enough, whether behind the scenes

or front of house and, of course, to all of you that tune in as it's your ears that

make this all worthwhile.

Lastly, watch out for some brilliant new additions to our DJ family over the

coming weeks and thank you once again for keeping it D3EP!

- Grant Nelson

"Those four years have shot by and been a honour to be part of the D3EP

family. Grant, many thanks for all you hard work in making it happen and

keeping it rolling. Also massive respect to all the other DJs, past and present,

and out to all the listeners x" Keith Harmer

"A personal huge thank you Grant for the opportunity to be

involved in the station, thanks for all your hard work you've

put into D3EP, and a big big shout to all the D3EP DJ's and

very loyal listeners. Big LOVE to the damn lot of you!!! xxxx"

Jon Manley


"It’s an absolute honour to play on D3EP and be a part of the

platform that Grant Nelson has provided for us. There’s a

great feeling and spirit between the DJ’s, and the growth and

progress of the station has been momentous. The most

important ingredient though are the listeners, we have a

fantastic listener base that is really in tune to the station's

vibe, it’s remarkable to see them travelling and sometimes

flying over from different countries and continents just to

hear the D3EP DJ’s play at gigs." James Lee

“So stoked to be part of this. 4 years have passed so quick. Thanks for giving

me a platform to play on this great station along with a great lineup of other

great selectors.” Jonny Wadd

“I am so honoured to be a part of the D3EP family. I honestly feel that you

have brought together some of the best people in the world, and not just

musically, but spiritually as well." Michelle Johnson, listener

“So proud and excited to be part of the absolute best online

crew for Proper House’n’Garage! Big up to you my twin

Andrea and to you boss Grant Nelson." Nycks

"D3EP is in our blood now. Its a way of life. Maximum respect to the listeners

and also Grant Nelson for the work he does behind the scenes to keep this

thing running," Braaks

"Such an honour to spin with the D3EP family!!! Thank you all.” Knox

"An HONOUR to be a small part of it Grant Nelson. It's a brilliant station. More

power to you for doing it." David Dunne

Acoustic Truth

When I heard Acoustic Truth’s recent song ‘You Make Me Great’, I was once

again moved by their warm, harmonized voices. They fit together like a hand

and glove.

When Ryan and Sarah Lendy met at Chicago summer camp for children with

special needs, neither knew how significant they would become to each other

and how they would influence the lives of so many others through their music.

In 2011 these best friends wrote their first song together. After several years

and several life changes, their songwriting is stronger than ever. No longer

solely best friends, they are now husband and wife, and mother and father to

son Jeremiah.

The pair have always hoped their music would provide hope and inspiration to

others. Prior to the birth of their son the couple had been touring, playing for

audiences throughout the United States. Once Jeremiah was born, they took

some time to focus on their songwriting. They began playing more in their

church and moving towards outreach for Christ.

Initially their music while inspirational was mostly secular and they were not

sure how their established fans would take their transition into the realm of

contemporary Christian music. Thankfully though, their fans have been very

supportive and, through the transition, they have gained a tremendous

number of new fans. It seems people are finding their music, which focuses on

personal stories and daily struggles, to be a relatable and welcomed influence.

This choice has been a blessing to this talented team. It has opened the doors

to many new opportunities which are currently in the works. They have also

had the opportunity to team up with the Christian network, Gods 411. This

pairing has been a tremendous help in spreading their music with their latest

video reaching five million people in a matter of 28 days. They never imagined

that was possible. However, they continue to remain humble and stress that

for them it is about the music and about the people.

The future is looking positive for this uplifting couple with current talks in the

works surrounding their music and their songwriting. Hopefully, we will see

some big announcements from them soon.



The Sassy Yank


Raising Awareness Of Mental Illness Through Music

Mon Frère are just incredible, not only do they support us immensely, but they

really put love and emotions into their work. Their recent music have taken us

aback with the theme of mental strength, sharing situations which can relate

to many of life’s challenges. There is always huge power which we really feel

deeply and are motivated by.

‘See What You Mean To Me’ featuring Mileva is another emotive addition to

their catalog. This single is in difficult support of the Tonic Music for Mental

Health charity which gives people a voice through music and challenges

perceptions of mental health. 50% of proceeds go towards the charity.

Your smile’s a lullaby. A soothing tune distracts my troubled mind.

It has also been touching to understand the story behind this single, Paul’s

own battles with OCD. His anxiety changed to relief after further knowledge

on what was going on, why, how it can be helped and, most importantly, the

knowledge that he isn’t alone.

24 www.AudationMagazine.com

Brighton based pop music producers, Mon Frère, have linked up with the dedicated

charity, Tonic Music for Mental Health, to help raise awareness and funds.

Mon Frère were moved to join up with Tonic due to their own experiences in this

area which can often be mis-understood, mis-represented and under resourced.

Paul and Matt from Mon Frère said, “As a pop act, we are surrounded by excellent

musicians and have become very aware of how many of these artists, although

confident on the outside, often struggle internally with a vast array of different

mental health issues. So, we investigated this further and found that in a recent

survey of musicians undertaken by the Help Musicians UK charity, it was discovered

that 71% of surveyed musicians reported that they have experienced anxiety and

panic attacks. Another 65% reported they had suffered from depression.”

“This set us on a journey of thinking about how we can help. We understand that

mental health issues are not just prevalent in the music industry. Many people suffer

with serious issues that affect their everyday life. So, we looked at local charities and

discovered a deeply committed one right on our doorstep. The fact that Tonic is a

mental health charity which also uses the medium of music seemed the perfect

organisation to try and link with.”

Tonic Music for Mental Health is a not-for-profit organisation based in the South-

Coast of England and established in 2012. Tonic have both Terry Hall (The Specials)

and Kevin Cummins (Music Photographer) as their patrons.

Tonic raises awareness and challenges the stigma often associated with mental

illness through music and art-based events. Tonic organise music workshops, gigs,

art groups, and community projects throughout the year for people experiencing

mental health problems.

In the current climate of austerity measures and government cuts, services available

to people with mental health problems are often limited and hard to access. Tonic

aim to support people who may already be receiving input from mental health

services and those who have not had any previous contact to provide an inclusive

support network to help people through their recovery.

Mon Frère are committing half of all the pre-sales of their next single, ‘See what you

mean to me’ to Tonic. The song was written about the struggles one can face with

mental health and how the support of others can be so vital. The single, released on

October 6th, features the stunning vocals of Mileva Corenthin and is a beautiful,

dreamy pop song from south coast band. If you pre-order the single you will also get

the chance to get their current single, ‘Caught up Caught out’ for free.

Twin flames, Light workers,

Starseeds… all beautiful souls of our

planet. The time is here.

AWAKEN. Wipe the sleep from ye

eyes. Nap time is over.

Music is an ageless and timeless

vibration where all is one. Present,

past or transcending our 3rd

dimension, music is a world

language, love the universal healer

and light the universe itself in


In enters passion filled with

creativity. Drop music in the mix and

you could quite possibly have a

purpose to raise vibrations. Given

our fast-evolving world and

revolutionary rise of consciousness,

special souls around the world are

awakening to their truth. Some are

doing it with their educated skills,

some with learned talent and others

still with inherent ancient gifts.

What’s important is that they are

following their hearts.

Nick Sarpa from Sydney, is a

promising, authentic and

passionate emerging DJ with heart.

He took time out to let us into his

journey of truth. He’s certainly a DJ

we enjoyed collaborating with

down under. Here’s what he has to

share with the world.

How did it all start for you?

My love for music started as a child

around the age of 5, watching and

listening to the weekly Video Hit

Charts. Over the years it continued to

grow, opening my eyes to different

genres. It wasn’t until I was 14, that I

was introduced to Classic Trance & Hi

NRG which drew me into the idea of

electronic music, where my passion

for music really kicked off. The idea

of being a DJ grabbed me when I went

to my first nightclub in Sydney, being

DCM, which allowed me to hear and

see what a DJ can do to a track, to

manipulate and blend it with another

to create a form of art. I wanted to be

that person.

What do you most love playing?

Currently I’m journeying through

Tech House & Techno as I’ve new

found love for it and want to continue

to focus and grow in these two genres.

However, if I ever get the chance to

go back to my roots and play

occasionally with the unique sound

of HI NRG, Hard House and Classic

Trance, then this is where all the fun

Being a BIG lover of food, I really enjoy

tasting every type of cuisine,

however being Italian, I cannot say no

to a good bowl of pasta and a slice of


Who’s your muse in the music world?

Growing up with music, I

26 www.AudationMagazine.com


encountered several idols as my love

of music evolved, starting with Paul

Van Dyk & Tiesto in their classic days

from 1998 - 2004. But now I get

majority of my inspiration from the

one and only king, Carl Cox!

“Music gives a soul to the

Universe, wings to the mind,

flight to the imagination

and life to everything.”


How would you describe the dance

scene in Sydney?

The dance scene in Sydney is still

continuing to grow after there was a

setback with laws. This caused a lot

of venues to close. However, due to

the growing popularity of Tech

House & Techno, parties are still

going very strong, attracting large

crowds, which gives hope for

the Sydney scene to turn around


Favourite colour?

I always contemplate between blue

and red but I'd say red is the one that

always gets me.

What single night out has been the

most memorable for you?

As a DJ, my most memorable night to

date is the Halloween party I hosted

in Sydney. The vibe inside the place

was screaming as the venue was

almost at full capacity. What made

this even more special was the crowd

being in the Halloween spirit, coming

dressed for the occasion. My recent

visit to the magical island of Ibiza has

to be my highlight. Even though I

wasn’t behind the decks this time,

being a part of the crowd for Jamie

Jones’s Paradise party at DC-10 will

be something I’ll never ever forget.

What are your future plans for your

music career?

My future plans for my career are to

continue to expose myself to the

world. I will be going on tour from

December, journeying my way

through different parts of the world

and sharing my love and passion for

music so then one day I can reach my

ultimate dream, being on that stage

with the king of Techno. I also want

to produce my own music and have

my own record label.

What is your advice to emerging

talent, and how can they set aside

any fears and pursue their dreams

with courage?

My advice is to be authentic and not

follow the crowd. If you want to be

recognised for something, stick with

your own style and idea, and persist

with it. Staying focused on your goals

is the key, and making small steps

every day. It can be a bit nerveracking

in front of crowds, but feel

the fear and do it anyway, it gets

Favourite holiday destination?

Every part of the world I have visited

has its own unique thing about it,

whether it’s Queenstown for snow

season, or Ibiza for parties, or Phuket

for the beaches. I do enjoy the

lifestyle and adventures that arise in

Asia, so this would have to be my

choice for now.

What are the things bug you about

the DJ scene?

Nothing, because every problem or

issue is just an opportunity to learn

and grow.

Name one track that never gets old

for you no matter how many times

you hear it?

The one track that will never get old

for me has to be Kamillian – Guidance

(Space Brothers Mix). For me this is

something I would hear every

weekend in the nightclubs in Sydney

and it would never disappoint.

quite the ideal to me. His obsessive

passion for music is what I see in

myself. One of very many reason that

stands out to me is the way he has

always stuck to his own style and

persisted with it and not followed

anyone else's trend.

What festivals would you most like

to play at?

There are so many music festivals all

over the world but if I had to choose

3, I would like to be a part of

Awakenings Festival in Amsterdam,

Burning Man in Las Vegas & Zurich

Street Parade.


Listen to the Sarperb Sounds weekly

show on Soundcloud.



If you could get eternally stuck in

one year's music scene, which year

would that be?

I would love to be taken back to the

year of 1999. To me, all genres of

music, whether it was hip hop, rap,

house, italodance, trance, eurodance

were all at their peak.

Who do you aspire to and who

influenced you the most?

I would have to say Carl Cox is the

guy I aspire to the most and would

also be my greatest influence. His

journey from a young age has been

SEKSiCuLLTURE - Awakening Hearts





'Ladders' by Mac Miller f t Jon Batiste

& Stay Human

‘Ladders’ opens with an arpeggiated eerie synth

before breaking Into retro style keyboards with Mac

singing in acapella style. A funky four to the floor

disco beat drops. Funk guitars and 80’s style synth

chord stabs get things moving along nicely, A

cool laid-back rap and singing vocal by Mac really

makes this track come alive in the verses

finished off In the chorus with a great stand-out

chic style horn and brass section.

I particularly love the live version which featured

on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, 14th August

2018. Other favourite’s of mine from the Swimming

album Include the intro track ‘Come Back To Earth’.

There is another cracking live version from the Hotel

Cafe of ‘ Hurt Feelings ’, which Mac posted on his

own Youtube channel one day before he passed

away, Another awesome track is ‘Whats The Use’

and, of course, his new single

‘Self Care ’ which has a great message and video.

‘Our Reflections’ by MBX is mesmerising. The complex meld of emotions are

perplexing, the smooth yet intense atmosphere captivates you. The track is

quite understated with a seemingly simply structure until you close your eyes

and really let it penetrate deep into your skin and your feel the incredible

moving energy.

Since blasting onto the OHM Music roster this past March, MBX has stolen the

show, leading the way as we climbed aboard for our ethereal quest to the stars

on 'Expanse' and inviting us to join him on a vivid expedition through the

'Valley Of Time'. As you make your way back down to reality, it would be wise

to keep your bags packed because the journey has only just begun. As an

advocate for generating music that pulls relentlessly at the soul's most

profound desires, MBX stands firm as our beloved mood setter. Taking the

trance and progressive industry by storm, he has set us adrift in a whirlwind of

honest emotion. Now fully hitting his stride, MBX pushes his vision one step

deeper, to tell the tale of 'Our Reflections'!

Come alongside MBX once again as you set sail over crystalline waters,

peering down with intrigue into the great abyss. Watch as your reflection

smiles back, solidifying your reality on this planet as the sweet effervescent

rhythm formulates a divine sense of belonging. Like a soft whisper, the angelic

melody soothes every fiber of your spirit as you are lifted into a pure state of

euphoria. And as you reach out to bond imagery with self-being, suddenly you

understand the great attribute that lies deep within life's unique design. You

are one of a kind, both fragile and strong, both living and conceptualized. This

is the truth told through 'Our Reflections'.

Simplistic beauty.

A dance between

the light and dark.


‘Queen of Hearts’ by Franko Fraize is packed with

attitude and honesty. The snappy and tuneful lyrical

flow gets you hooked. The smooth chorus is really

lovely and warming. The bubbly beat kicks in and

compliments the spirit in vocals really well.

34 www.AudationMagazine.com



Eloquently piecing together a portrait depicting the life of his female

protagonist, Franko Fraize releases his breathtaking single ‘Queen of

Hearts’. Plagued by insecurities and riddled with self-doubt his powerful

single echoes a story that delves deep into the life of the leading lady as

we are taken through her footsteps. The composition of the lyricism,

combined with the mesmerising production creates an atmospheric

instrumental that is infused with piano loops and drums patterns.

‘Queen of Hearts’ is the third single to be released from his forthcoming

‘Lights and Colour’ EP, due for release this Autumn. It comes off the back

of his feel good single ‘Let It Go’, which is a nostalgic dance inspired

summer scorcher. The first of the three tracks was ‘Side By Side’, which

received a nod from 1Xtra DJ Mistajam who said: “I’ve been keeping my

eye on him for a while but this is possibly his best track to date!”.

Unconfined by genre Franko Fraize’s musical diversity is evident through

his music and the last three releases plays homage to his eclectic taste.

Having quite the legacy to his name already, the Norfolk native sits high

on many radars in the music world. His prestigious Maida Vale session for

the BBC with Huw Stephens, support from Mistajam and BBC Introducing

sits alongside a wealth of both solo and collaborative material that spans

a motley range of genres. From releases on Hospital Records with Fred V

& Grafix to the Loadstar album, tours with Mike Skinner and Rudimental

through to live performances at the biggest festivals in the world,

including BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Reading & Leeds, The Great

Escape, Tramlines and Outlook festival in Croatia this September, it is

evident that Franko Fraize has a talent that is in high demand and as sets

to deliver his best music so far, his journey looks set to reach new highs.



Konektiv presents an interesting set of

progressive tracks. ’Universos’ has a

whirring, somewhat extraterrestrial feel.

’Aria’ is wonderfully intricate with a deep

and enchanting atmosphere.

After a hiatus of several years since his

astonishing debut album ‘Synchronicity

365’ on Molecule, Daniel Mahuad is back

with two 120bpm cuts of his inimitable &

unique progressive sound, refined for

contemporary sound-systems. Think

experimental & intuitive sound-design,

immersive & intelligent arrangements, clubfriendly

fat bass lines propelling filtered

drops & swells – and you get the picture.

‘The Early Tapes’ by XXXV gold fingers is out of this world.

Piercing retro synths and mood-shifting warps swoop around

flitty minimal percussion. There is a real sense of wonder and

experimentation in this collection with ‘Moondown’, ‘San’,

‘PianoGL’ and ‘L’arco’ being a few highlights.

Italian-producer XXXV gold fingers, a.k.a. Marco Erroi, presents

his second full length and his first release on Ràkale, the

italian label run by Dodi Palese.

Owner of the Common Series project – a label which only puts

out his own music – Marco has delivered 9 tracks recorded

between 2003 and 2007: “We fell in love with the music at

first listen. The fact that they were created more than 10 years

ago confirms the futuristic vision of this talented artist, that

we have been following since his first steps.”

For this project, the label also involved the Italian illustrator

Pierpaolo Gaballo, who has been entrusted for the cover of the

album, “to better represent the musical journey through

radiant colors and forms. Get ready to travel into Marco’s

world, have a good listen!”

The ‘Syvdoh II’ album is a retro meld comprising of psychedelic synthesisers,

tuneful guitars and a hazy mellow voice. ‘Black Museum’ has a classic and

timeless sound, the distinct beats gently encouraging your body to move.

‘Vienna 1913’ makes you smile upon the first hearing of the playful guitar riff

and the lively pace, the variants of the vocal further exude this passion. There

is an interesting turning point where the guitar is dropped, the mood changes

and the vocals really shine. ‘I Want My Lover’ has a unique muted tone with

only the percussion together with a hard guitar strum holding stable strength.

As the track progresses, it almost feels like the sound takes over and washes

over the character and his sadness. ‘Hiroshima Seizures’ is a powerful moment

with deep emotion filling you with every guitar chord and vocal note. It is

simply beautiful.

SYVDOH is the brainchild of former Sea Kings Brian Canning and Ralph Hector

(BBC 6Music, Radio Scotland, Louder Than War, Vive Le Rock) who’ve

collaborated, written and produced Syvdoh I & II between Glasgow and

Monmouth in South Wales.

Syvdoh II is pop sounds mixed with political and social comment. Shades of

the big guns run throughout; Bowie, Prince and Springsteen, but with a more

contemporary twist of Sleaford Mods meeting Field Music.

The album is packed to the rafters with big concepts; gang culture, heaven,

death, mental health, Leveson, the press, the void, mind control, serial killers,

homophobia, death camps, slave ships, psychics, Hiroshima... so in short a right

barrel of laughs.

There is a selection of guest appearances, notably the author Denise Mina

(Winner of the 2017 McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Book of the Year). It’s

dark in there, but the pop sounds bring the light.



‘Ganesa’ by Tali Muss is a fantastic

blend of moods and cultures. The

steady progressive beat takes in,

there is a rising atmosphere together

with subtle soft charms. The dark,

gritty bass drops in. This is contrasted

against stunning middle-eastern

A dream state.

The spellbinding

heat of love.


‘Lost In My Mind’ by RÜFÜS DU SOL is powerful. The steady pace is paired with

a mild yet gripping vocal. The huge atmospheric shifts drag you into the deep

melancholy, it seeps into your veins and you feel yourself getting lost. Walking

and the sky keeps falling down. The middle section brings the dystopia of high,

warped synths. And I can’t escape it.

One of the world’s most celebrated live electronic bands RÜFÜS DU SOL share

the third offering, ‘Lost In My Mind’ from their forthcoming album ‘SOLACE’.

Highlighted as one of the most ambitious and gritty tracks off the album, it is

honoured today as Zane Lowe’s World Record with Apple Music Beats 1, and

comes as the band grace the cover of September legendary dance music

publication, Mixmag. ‘Lost In My Mind’ puts forth a pent up desire for escapism

and a true grasp for analogue sound-design, confirming ‘SOLACE’ as the band’s

most mature and thought provoking effort to date.

“It feels like a new RÜFÜS. We are inspired by our new home out here, by the

people we’ve met and the music we’ve heard along the way. We’ve got a

refreshed sense of ambition and cannot wait to share our creation with the

world.” RÜFÜS DU SOL

‘Lost In My Mind’ arrives in the midst of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s largest run of

headlining live shows. The band just wrapped a triumphant run in Europe with

sold-out shows at London’s O2 Forum and Manchester’s Club Academy.

Heading out to embark on a US tour, the trio return back to Europe for a string

of dates in late-November, early-December across Glasgow, Manchester,

Birmingham and London alongside Amsterdam, Paris, Cologne and Berlin. This

news arrives alongside the much-anticipated release of the tracklist for the

album ‘Solace’, outlining nine anthems sure to continue the journey set forth

by ‘No Place’, ‘Underwater’, and ‘Lost In My Mind’.

The ‘Everything EP’ by Hectic is a fun blend of styles. The title track is

comprised of addictive vocals and a moody dubstep production. The

second song ‘Giving In’ is an intriguing contrast of moods with a nifty

balance of light and dark. The smooth atmosphere and piano chords are

paired with a sassy vocal, this all is then bounced against harder bass

sections. Slow Graffiti adds a choppy twist to ‘Everything’ for the final

‘Breakdown’ by Kandace Springs is stunning. Her vocal range

pulls at your heart strings with a soft, elegance entwined

around the strong and passionate main section. You’re my

saving grace. The love and emotion is felt greatly. Just say

you’ll stay here. The subtle production through the verses allow

the voice to shine, whilst the heightened depth of the chorus is

complimented well with a fuller structure.

“A voice that could melt snow” PRINCE

Singer and pianist Kandace Springs has released her remarkable

second album Indigo (Blue Note), a 13-track LP of originals and

choice covers that showcases the full breadth of Kandace’s

artistry from smoldering R&B (“People Make the World Go

‘Round” “6 8”) to gorgeous jazz ballads (“Unsophisticated”

featuring Roy Hargrove) to the pop songcraft of “Breakdown”

and “Don’t Need The Real Thing.”

All but two tracks are produced by drummer/producer Karriem

Riggins (Common, Erykah Badu) with additional production

by Jamie Hartman (Rag'n'Bone Man), Jimmy Hogarth (Amy

Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae), Jimmy Harry (Madonna, P!nk),

and Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken (Rihanna). Indigo is available

on vinyl, CD, download, and streaming services.

With this new album, Springs continues to develop and grow as

singer and a songwriter in her own right. In 2014, Springs

attracted the attention of the late PRINCE and the music icon

invited her to perform with him at Paisley Park for the 30th

anniversary of Purple Rain. He also gave her his custom-made

leather jacket. Even more vibrant and soulful than her last

record, Indigo truly demonstrates why she deserves to be at the

forefront of modern jazz – “I would like to be known as one of

the younger people that are keeping jazz and soul alive and

vibrant” she says. “I love the realness of jazz and soul.”



The ‘Silence EP’ by SPECTRASOUL is wonderfully moving. Soft and

airy vocals dance effortlessly between the dark, harsh bass. The

gentle, melodic piano movements in ‘Faithful’ are paired with a

passionate trust in love. Stunning strings add beauty to ‘Silence’

featured LSB. A mesmerising set of songs.

Having had a busy 2018 Spring/Summer season performing at clubs

and festivals all across the world, the drum & bass duo SpectraSoul

return with brand new music to continue the Ish Chat Music saga,

picking up from where their critically acclaimed album 'How We Live'

left off.

The ‘Silence EP’ features four hugely in demand tracks that have been

making waves during these past months, from the brooding

sparseness of ‘Untitled Horn’ to the soul searching of ‘Faithful’, this

is yet another essential SpectraSoul selection.

Bright, feelgood



‘A Good Life’ by Louise Golbey is a wonderfully vibrant

song, reflecting on life and seeing how good it is. The

soulful grooves together with the charming, sweet voice

just fills you with joy. I truly believe it will be alright.

There is such warmth, beauty and positivity bursting


Having played alongside Ed Sheeran at one of his very

first London gigs at Kentish Town’s iconic Abbey Tavern

and also at his last surprise intimate show at The Green

Note in Camden, singer/songwriter Louise Golbey is

releasing ‘A Good Life’, a summer disco pop jam cowritten

with Danny Toeman and produced by Eames. The

track is the lead single from Louise’s new project with

Eames which will culminate in a full EP towards the end

of this year.

Louise has shared the stage with global superstars such

as Katy B, Jessie J, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith, Lianne La

Havas and Mr Hudson. She was recently Caffe Nero’s

Artist of The Month (following Jack Savoretti) and has

had radio support from BBC Radio 2, Radio 1Xtra, BBC 6

Music, BBC London, Jazz FM and Mi-Soul. She is one of

the most in-demand openers on the UK Live circuit,

performing to 6,000 people ahead of the legendary

George Benson at a Kenwood House Picnic Concert,

landed support slots for En Vogue and Roberta Flack at

the Indigo2, a sold out UK tour with The Stylistics, Roy

Ayers, Omar and Kenny Thomas and Barack Obama’s

favourite artist – Anthony David at Bush Hall. She has

played at Isle of Wight Festival and Glastonbury (on the

BBC Introducing stage), recorded at Maida Vale studios

and has performed at legendary venues such as Ronnie

Scotts, the Jazz Cafe & the London Jazz Festival.





’Junglesound: Revenge Of The Bass - 15 Years Of BBK’ is a must-have

compilation for D&B fans. It features timeless tracks including ‘Goddust’

by DJ Fresh, ‘Can’t Get Enough’ by Camo & Krooked, ‘Bigger Than Hip Hop

UK’ by Dread Prez & WTF?! and ’Crazy World’ by J Majik & Wickaman. The

album also presents a few fresh and exciting tracks. ‘New Wave’ by

Brookes Brothers is really lovely, light and fun with a feelgood aspect and

lively beats. ‘Keep Your Head Up’ by Roska x DJ Fresh has a slight UK

Garage connotation with the bumpy beat and vocal cut, this is twisted

against a big rough bass sound.

Breakbeat Kaos returns to the forefront of the bass music scene in 2018

celebrating 15 years since its inception. Founded by DJ Fresh and Adam F

the BBK brand has been synonymous with some of the biggest talents in

electronic music worldwide, founding many a career. ’Junglesound:

Revenge Of The Bass (15 Years Of Breakbeat Kaos)’ encapsulates the

label essence, showcasing just a few of DJ Fresh’s favourites plus several

brand new exclusives and remixes that pave the way for the continued

return of BBK.

“When I started Breakbeat Kaos with Adam F we wanted to start a label

which showcased the most memorable drum and bass moments. We

never expected the success of Pendulum and other label cohorts such as

Brookes Brothers, Baron, Nero and Chase & Status but we tried to give

them the best platform we could. After two number one and ten top ten

records I wanted to give something back to the D&B scene and celebrate

15 years of BBK in the only way we know how... bangers!” DJ Fresh 2018
