Prometheus Trailer

Kinda hard not to talk about this film, Ridley Scott back doing what he pioneered. The teaser videos have got people more than hyped. If you haven't seen the TED talk one then I highly recommend it. POWERFUL. Watch that one HERE.

Sunday night the guys dropped the latest trailer which does a good job of showing us what we're in store for...

Good Vibes 2 - Mirror Image (Mixed by Gasius)

The good folks over at The Good Hood store yesterday blessed us once again with their weekly mix.
This one takes a step in a different direction, which is not exactly to my liking but still worth the listen.

Hennessy continue to celebrate their dedication to music by offering Facebook fan's the chance to to perform at the Blues Passions festival 2012, and take their music from online to onstage.
The brand so synonymous with Hip-Hop culture and often applied to various peices from Supreme (whether they like it or not) has been sponsoring the Blues Passions festival since 1994 (ironically the same year as our beloved Supreme's conception). The festival located in Hennessy's hometown of Cognac, France will be headlined by Sting, Hugh Laurie, Selah Sue and will feature a special peformance on the final day by renowned Afro-Soul singer Imany on grounds of the Hennessy Chateau Bagnolet as a grand finale. 

All video entries will be submitted to an esteemed judging panel including: Maurice Hennessy from the Hennessy family, Blues Passions festival founder Michel Rolland, editor-in-chief of Clash Magazine Simon Harper and Rolling Stone India’s editor Lalitha Suhasini. The judging panel will choose their top ten entries, which will then be published on Facebook where Hennessy Facebook fans can vote alongside the judges to pick the final two winners to perform live at Blues Passions, a festival that has hosted performances by musical legends including B.B. King, Gil Scott Heron and Ray Charles as well as Massive Attack, Moby, Andreya Triana and Taj Mahal. 

The Chase the Music. Own the Stage. talent quest are looking for musicians that can bring their own musical uniqueness and dynamic performances to Blues Passions. Staying true to the roots of music and the Blues heritage carried out by the festival, all entries must fit into the genres of Blues, Soul, Funk, Folk, R & B, Boogie, Swing, Country, Gospel, Hip Hop, Slam, Rock’n’Roll... 

To kick off the Chase the Music. Own the Stage. talent quest, Hennessy will showcase exclusive films from last year’s Blues Passions festival documented by Hennessy International. The videos feature backstage footage, artist interviews, live performances and bespoke acoustic sessions in the Hennessy Founder’s Cellars. Check that out HERE

Moony - Close Enough

I think it goes without saying that Moony is quite possibly one of the most stand out grime / UKG producers at the moment. In recent months his production has noticeably improved no end with a vast amount of his tracks getting a regular rotation on all the usual radio stations.

Along with the constant inclusion of his beats in radio sets it has been great to see that a lot of them aren't disappearing into black holes and are instead getting the releases they deserve.

That is the case with the track; 'Close Enough' which I first heard on his brilliant guest mix for Aaron Hanson on Rinse FM and have been playing regularly ever since. There is now also a music video that accompanies the track which you can see below.

Be sure to check the other links to get a better idea of his material and its sheer diversity if you aren't aware of it already.

'Close Enough' will be available from all your usual digital music vendors on 7th of May.

Out to Progressive Intelligence on this one!

Catch Moony live on Nasty.Fm every Monday 6-8pm ;
