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.

‘Home’ by James Kennedy

Alternative, Rock

James Kennedy is a hugely experienced musician having formerly fronted Welsh hardcore-rock band, Kyshera, and now he is transferring these talents to working on his own solo material.

Unfortunately for James, he encountered problems after touring all over Europe with Kyshera as he began to suffer from depression. Yet on the bright side, James turned to his passion for songwriting and music as a way of relieving his depression and this process has formed his new introspective album, ‘Home’. Evidently, from the name of the record, James is in a much better place now and this is reflected through the new songs.

Although Kyshera had a very distinct brand of aggressive alt-rock, James has re-directed his style as a solo artist to a more signer-songwriter rock sound. There are still elements of classic rock, including heavy guitars and solos, but he has also employed some killer hooks that make for a particularly catchy form of a seemingly dying genre.

The entirely self taught musician was attended the Welsh College of Music & Drama where he developed his musical talents, before working in a recording studio. James then used the skills he had learnt to form his own label, Konic Records.

Titled the 32nd sexiest man in Wales, James Kennedy doesn’t just have soulful, raspy vocals and a dynamic performance style. Drawing similarities with Prince, The Script and Paolo Nutini, Home reflects Kennedy’s journey of depression from dark to light.

Home is out on 31st March 2017.

INJIN Releases ‘Tennessee’

Alternative, Folk, Rock

INJIN is clearly no stranger to the world of rock’n’roll, having performed in a number of bands and rubbed shoulders with the likes of Santana’s band and even Jimi Hendrix’s drummer. Using this experience that he has accumulated over the years, the talented songwriter is back with his own work and the new track, ‘Tennessee’.

Chanelling an 80s synth-rock style for ‘Tennesseee’, INJIN is reigniting a retro sound for the modern day which is sure to appeal to a wide audience. A difficult childhood has influenced his songwriting in a big way which aims to diverge from the ‘conveyor belt’ material that is constantly churned out in the music industry.

The track is accompanied by a visually stunning and picturesque video, featuring INJIN himself wandering the landscape of the countryside, seemingly in search of something, but what exactly is not clear.

During his youth, at the age of around 7, INJIN mysteriously stopped growing which led to some difficult formative years for him. Fortunately, he was one of a select few chosen for ground breaking treatment that managed to cure him. 

INJIN’s difficult past gave him the knowledge and experience he needed and he soon grew in confidence to push musical boundaries by re-arranging songs from the likes of Pink Floyd, Ten Years After and Deep Purple with his cover band Ruby Spoon. I N J I N took the name Ruby Spoon to America where he began to embrace the rock lifestyle and his powerful vocals helped him gain a strong following.

INJIN is a believer that music has lost that personal touch that it once had, so his aim with ‘Tennessee’ was to bring back the emotive edge, using forgotten instruments that blend beautifully with his raw vocals. Exploring different moods with a late 1800, early 1900s sound, I N J I N’s music has a mystical haunting sound, marrying pacific wind instruments with electric guitars.
