It’s an interesting name, Biting Elbows. We thought that last year when we introduced the Moscow-based band to our readers: our opinion hasn’t changed. We’re pleased to bring two more songs from the indie band whose music is notable for its dark undertones – ‘Heartache’, and ‘Control’. Naturally, there’s videos as well.
The Internet has definitely taken a hold of most of our lives, and ultimately it’s up to us to decide if we’re going to let it rule our lives, or embrace it and let it work for us. The latter is certainly the case for Unintended Strangers, an indie/folk duo comprising Robert Griffin in the US, and Chloe Danz, of New Zealand, who after a chance meeting online back in November 2017 decided to join forces as a musical project.
Progressive House, Electro House, and Trance Future Bass are all styles that David Reed and Chad Cisneros have experimented with in over a decade of working together as Tritonal. They’ve won the respect and recognition of some of the biggest names in electronic music, including Armin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, Nicky Romero, Above & Beyond, to name a few. They’ve taken Tritonal to the Electric Daisy Carnival, the Electric Zoo, Creamfields in Australia, Ultra Music Festival, and other top notch EDM events. On top of all that, with ‘Air Up There’, and their new Tritonia show on Sirius XM, they show themselves to be both skilled and discerning radio hosts.
Not gonna lie; its been quite a low key week for me. I’ve currently saving super hard for my trip to Baltimore next month among other exciting things but it really has got me thinking about things happening. I realised that unless the occasion involves alcohol I’m often not partial to attendance. I spent Thursday & Friday drinking away at the local pub; drinking the night away with colleagues and smoking just a little too much. We’ll look back on these occasions with such fondness, even if they do end with myself jumping into the back of a cab enroute to a hook up I 100% should not be pursuing.
In 2015 Rocky Dawuni became the first Ghanaian to be nominated for a GRAMMY Award, for his electrifying sixth album, ‘Branches Of The Same Tree’, in the Best Reggae Album category. Dawuni isn’t strictly a Reggae artist; he encorporates the style into his music, but it’s part of an amalgam of styles, including Afrobeat, Highlife, traditional Ghanaian folk, dancehall, jazz, North American soul, RnB, and electropop. He calls his sound Afro Roots: there’s nothing else quite like it.
