The slow march of the blues advances, note by bass note. One-man-band Van Tastik has been living and performing his way across the continents and now he’s brought his Delta-saturated tones to Edinburgh, where Drag Me To Hell premiered on BBC Scotland at the Edinburgh Fringe. If you’re up that way, catch him live over the next few months - otherwise wait for his new EP later this year.
Valle Hits The Mic
By now you’ll all have seen Valle Hope’s introduction video. The prodigious singer-songwriter has put the pen down on his debut EP and has picked up the mic in our London studio - watch this space over the coming weeks for sneak previews and behind the scenes content. Soon you’re going to see what all the fuss has been about!
Eclectic has always been the podcast mantra. Why restrict yourself? Consume blues rock from Van Tastik, Latin-infused songwriting from Hayden Brenen and indie rock from Marek Kubala. Start here and you could soon be on a discovery voyage of your own, and you’ll have gotten the details from around the label at the same time.
Would you like to experience involuntary salsa? Listen to 100 Degrees by Hayden Brenen - it works on me. Released December just gone, it’s the lead single from his upcoming second EP. The 21-year-old brings his multi-instrumentalism to bare, with performances of piano and guitars both bass and treble. It’s worth catching up on his varied discography, and do join me in the salsa before I feel like too much of an idiot.
Upbeat and energetic, distorted guitar, a relentless left-right rhythm which sounds like indie rock. In fact it’s Fault Lines, the first release from Marek Kubala’s new rocked up project. He’s a rare convert in music, having cut his teeth in acoustic singer-songwriting before pulling a 180 into fuzz and drums. Hear the exclusive on this month’s show.
