Opening with a punchy bassline and a distorted take on Shakka’s vocal, Tazer’s upfront edit on ‘Say Nada’ blurs the line between urban infused house and straight up garage. With hard hitting synth interchanges and deeply rolling basslines, ‘Say Nada’ showcases Tazer’s talents as a producer and perfectly demonstrates.

The cardinal grand cross is one of the most difficult astrological alignments to achieve, and the Greek mythological figure Chiron represents wisdom and healing.

The addition of horns heightens the drama as the guitars swirl and Heather McEntire’s voice seems to summon what she seeks.

THE BY GODS NEW SINGLE
The By Gods breed hook-laden, roll-your-windows-down rock & roll, respectfully reminiscent of the band’s early to mid-90’s alternative predecessors. On the new album, the band grows from a duo into a trio, thanks to the addition of bassist Natalie Pauley, along with original members George Pauley (vocals, guitar) and Tye Hammonds (drums).
Together, The By Gods hit their stride from the opening track and, downstrokes-be-damned, continue delivering their fuzz-guitar-laden youthful energy in crystal-clear high fidelity throughout the album.

Out of that barn, a most-impressive beast of an album has germinated and is ready to devour the planet.

TWO LEGS NEW SINGLE
Starting off his musical life in Manchester as a member of various Indie bands, Two Legs relocated to Bristol in 2012 and caught the dance music bug, switching to DJing and producing, aiming to go out on a limb and create an individual sound of his own. Although his early productions garnered plenty of interest, as did his bootleg remixes, there was something unsatisfying in using vocal samples and making music solely for the dancefloor. He was listening to DJ Koze, Caribou, Benoit & Sergio, David August… he wanted his music to be haunting and powerful. He soon realised he needed to go back to his roots and introduce a songwriting element and live instrumentation to his music. He also wanted the songs to actually be about something.

A brilliant and mesmerizing piece.
WE ARE THE CITY “KISS ME HONEY”
The last month and a half has seen We Are The City emerge from a self-imposed, total social media blackout, to reveal a grainy, 24/7 video stream showing the B.C. trio sequestered in an undisclosed location creating their third album, Above Club before their fan’s eyes. There are obvious questions about We Are The City recording in a make-shift studio apartment, seemingly above a nightclub. The live stream, hosted from wearethecity.ca ended rather suddenly and dramatically last week, with an unknown person in the band’s studio, messing with the band’s gear and laptops.

KRAYZIE BONE OF BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY GOES SOLO
To be cemented as one of the most influential members of the hip-hop community is no small feat. Being the leader of the biggest selling hip-hop group of all time, with 25 Million records sold, is a historic milestone and that is what Krayzie Bone achieved over the course of his extensive career.
Due to his participation as a member of the legendary group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, he has established a fanbase so loyal that they have followed him along his solo path for two decades. These fans have been conditioned to expect their “fix” of new music almost yearly and after such a long hiatus coupled with promises of the long-awaited final album, Chasing The Devil, they are almost going through the beginning stages of withdrawal.
