Medical marvel Adam Lanceley unveils plans for seventh album ‘Epitaph to Innocence’

Indie

If a songwriter is only as effective as the stories they tell, Adam Lanceley will have etched his songs into your mind in no time.

His latest album ‘Epitaph to Innocence‘ is his seventh to date, despite suffering life-changing injuries from a car crash many years ago. The singer-songwriter was only ten years old when he was involved in the accident. Sustaining a severe brain injury, a crushed pelvis and shattered legs, doctors advised him he was unlikely to walk or talk again. Against all odds, Adam not only proved them wrong but has taken his remarkable recovery to the extreme, running marathons and now carving out a career as a singer-songwriter.

Though Adam is very secretive about the meaning behind his lyrics, Epitaph to Innocenceretains his ever-present optimism. The songwriter tends to pen his tracks in the hope that the messages hidden within will inspire other people who are going through difficulties of all kinds. In common with his previous releases, the album is heavily influenced by the 1960’s Californian sound, with Beach Boys-esque melodies and a defiantly upbeat vibe.

Although Adam has conquered many of the physical consequences of the accident, he has said that mentally he sometimes feels like a little boy, struggling with mental issues such as very low confidence and depression. His musical career has given him an outlet to express himself, which once again reinforces the restorative powers of music on both the artist and the audience. Epitaph to Innocence is far from an ending, it’s yet another example of Adam’s ability to continually confound expectations and to push himself to new heights of creativity.

Quadri Continues His Line of Fire with New Track ‘White Denim’

Rap, Uncategorized

If ‘Fire‘ announced Quadri’s arrival into the rap world, ‘White Denim‘ sees him accelerating past the competition. Opting for a Giggs-esque flow, the rapper’s prowling delivery and low electronics lend an ominous feeling to the track. While his debut track dealt in big, bold claims, ‘White Denim’ sees the South London MC relax into his flow, oozing in an unspoken confidence.

Listen to the track on Urban Radar’s Spotify playlist below.

Cosmic Trap Guru, Adam 888, Taps into the Heart of Everything

Alternative, Dance, Electronica

We’ll leave it to Adam 888, Warner’s latest signing, to explain the genesis of his latest single, Chakra 123:

“In our body we have something called nadis, which are energetic pathways that distribute energy throughout the body. We have about 72,000 nadis in our body and they have 114 important junction points – these  junction points are called chakras. Of these chakras, we have 7 major ones that run our being on a physical and non-physical plane.

My intention with this song is to create an expression that symbolises the energy that moves through our first three chakras: the energy of self preservation; our survival instinct. I want to learn more about our body’s internal energy system so we can start to receive & generate pure energy made from truth and love. The song is a reflection of our first 3 chakras”

Blimey! Well, as you might imagine, this is trippy as you like trap (trip-trap?), all beautifully polished and oozing with oddness. Naturally, the accompanying video is equally mad, venturing into dark forests and ending in fiery freakouts. Don’t eat the mushrooms, kids.

Jonny Dee Throws the Rule Book in the Bin

Alternative, Funk, Hip Hop, Soul

Jonny Dee brings his unique brand of psychedelic hip-hop and otherworldly rap to the masses with his first full-length release, “The Human Experience”. Like De La Soul and Tribe Called Quest before him, there is scant regard for what is expected of a musician who by rights is a rapper: this is rap music from another dimension – recognisable as rap but filled with elements of funk, jazz, psychedelia, soul, video game music…the list goes on with every listen.

Based in San Diego, Jonny is completely unafraid to challenge preconceptions of both him and his music. With a look which is far nearer to the Summer of Love than gang battlefields, and a groove and instrumentation on his tracks which could fit in any number of sections in record store racks, depending on which track you skip to, Jonny is the sum of his influences and so much more. With musical innovation running in the family (his great-aunt, Marilyn McCoo, was a member of psych-soul behemoths, 5th Dimension), Jonny is as happy featuring supersonic loops and elephantine bass (such as on opener, “Rhythm of my Life”), as he is freak-out 60’s electric guitar (“In the Sound”) or the full-on 70’s funk-soul of “The Man Who Fell From the Sky”.

Jonny himself explains the concept of the album:

The whole idea of “The Human Experience” is essentially understanding and loving yourself more and more, to the point that when you look back out at the rest of the world, a lot of the struggles that people have just don’t make sense”. It’s all about a person getting more in touch with themselves, finding happiness that way, and wanting to help others to do the same. The music is a guideline I guess to find some freedom and peace from the “everyday struggles”. The “human experience” is the act of going out and trying to understand humans, why they do the things they do, treat each other the way they do, and trying to help them”.

Multi-instrumentalist Jonny Dee is the catalyst the music world has needed to bring together all genres and backgrounds into the same playing-field and giving music fans a whole universe of sound to listen to in one place.

A Bold and Bright move on Hunters part shows the world what fusing blues with dance music can do, proving that the styles can marry together perfectly.

EZ Does It – Eztain Builds on Australia’s Future Bass Reputation

Dance, Disco/Techno, Electronica, house

Australia’s musical output has been a little wayward over the years – for every Nick Cave, there were ten Angry Andersons; bands who promised much (think along the lines of The Triffids and The Go-Betweens), found it difficult to break out of being critically acclaimed into commercially successful. However, when it comes to dance music, there has been far more influence and interaction with the world at large.

Electro house and progressive house artists have flourished in Australia and are largely seen as trailblazers in the scene. The likes of Cut Copy; The Avalanches; Pendulum and Flume have opened up what dance has traditionally been received as into something approaching a new strand of rock n roll which any kid can listen to and legitimately have a go themselves. Such is the case with Eztain (aka Jake Colson), who has emerged from the outer reaches of Perth to become the next Flume.

Taking house into the future bass arena, his EP shows the wide range of emotion and power that dance has come to embrace, being music to think to as much as music to dance to. The soundscapes are easy to lose yourself in which each track bleeding their essence into each other yet still existing as standing out in their own right. Hugely promising, it’s only a matter of time before the wider world  picks up on Eztain, further blurring how dance music is perceived and how it can evolve even further in the future.
