I’m six hours into a black metal binge. It’s been a night of melancholic, guttural voice- growling vocal and distorted guitars- a weird mixture of noise and a hypnotic atmosphere and I’m feeling strange in a good way- lost in a dense, dark and strange world of face paint and sombre music played at high decibel- a place where Kiss meet the journey into the heart of darkness ride of a Joy Division or the Cure when they were doing pornography.

In the music video supporting his second single Beats, a Brussels-based artist David Numwami is firmly skating along his creative path bravely leaving frustrations aside.

Baby Shakes are three gals and a guy from Brooklyn. Huge in Japan and Italy. Their glam rock stomp of a single is totally fantastic and written played and produced in Derry with Damian and Billy from The Undertones
There are further musical inspirations such as Chili Peppers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Mark Ronson and Eminem throughout the band creating an incredible mash up of funk, soul, rap, hip hop, funk and pop.
