ALBUM REVIEW: Netsky – '3'

Originally published on inthemeantime.me.uk

When it comes to the drum and bass scene, the first artist that usually comes to mind for me is either Sigma or Netsky. But as this title suggests, this is not a review of Sigma, today I’ve decided to review the highly anticipated third album by Netsky.

For me, I only got to know about Netsky after the start of the new year when I heard ‘Rio’ which features Digital Farm Animals. The chilled out vibes and the slower tempo, combined with the DnB made for a quaint mix which I personally liked, a lot. It was not until I discovered ‘Work It Out’ which also featured Digital Farm Animals, that I actually became a fan of his music. It was certainly a departure from my usual tropical house and cheese vibe, but I liked it.

Three Tracklist:

  1. Thunder feat. Emeli Sande
  2. Work it Out feat. Digital Farm Animals
  3. Rio feat. Digital Farm Animals
  4. Leave it Alone feat. Saint Raymond
  5. Who Knows feat. Paije
  6. Go 2
  7. High Alert feat. Sara Hartman
  8. TNT feat. Dave 1 from Chromeo
  9. Stay Up With Me feat. Arlissa
  10. Forget What You Look Like feat. Lowell
  11. Bird of Paradise
  12. Jauz X Netsky – Higher

I’ll try not to talk about every song..

To kick things off, Netsky partners up with Emeli Sande to produce ‘Thunder’. Starting with a string based instrumental introduction, it was an immediate cue for me to continue listening. In fact it became one of my favourite songs on the entire album. Emeli’s vocals were perfect for this song. I was glad to see that ‘Work it Out’ and ‘Rio’ were on this album because they were the first songs that made me a fan and so to see them on his third studio album made smile. ‘Leave it Alone’ was an interesting song which I found to be very funky in its approach. The backing vocals reminded me of ‘Higher’ by Sigma, but when the beat came in after the intro, I knew I’d like this song, and it certainly did not disappoint. But what surprised me the most was the next song. ‘Who Knows’ was certainly a surprising package. The mellow vibes along with the combination of string instruments and Paije’s vocals (which reminded me of John Newman) made for a beautiful song. ‘TNT’ was a departure from Netsky’s usual vibe. It was funky, it was something that I really got into. I think the vocals by Chromeo assisted in adding a certain degree of funkiness. No complaints though, I really like Chromeo as an artist and so to see them back is a welcome thing to see.

Whilst looking for music, I’ve been gathering lots of songs which I’ve found to be chilled in its approach, and I found a new songs to add to my list in ‘Who Knows’ and ‘Bird of Paradise’. In ‘Bird of Paradise’, the beautiful mixture of ambient noises, string instruments and piano, juxtaposed with the drum and bass beat makes for a wonderful combination.

‘Go 2’ showed promise. I could just about grasp a beat to the song. But it’s not something that I would say I enjoyed. Instead lets just say that it left me confused. Some songs that didn’t seem to hit the right chord with me were ‘Stay Up With Me’ and ‘Forget What you Look Like’. With these though, they’re not necessarily bad songs. They are in fact pretty good. They have the standard vibe that you would expect of a DnB-based album. However, I feel this is one occasion where releasing instrumental versions first followed by the release of the versions with vocals as ‘remixes’ might have made me enjoy it a lot more. I can certainly get into those songs, I just think I would’ve enjoyed it a lot more if it had been released as an original mix and a separate vocal remix. Something that is commonplace in the music industry, especially when it comes to EDM.

The Verdict..

The verdict from me personally is generally positive. I’ve criticised a few songs (sort of). Just like most EDM these days, there has been a shift in what can be considered ‘mainstream’. I’ve seen DnB evolve with that shift. From liquid DnB to just full on dirty DnB, you will always find something that you will enjoy. The thing I saw with Netsky was that there weren’t moments when the quality of the album peaked or troughed. Instead, it remained consistent. His style always shone through which is what we generally expect. We want more, but we want their type of more. The only gripes I had were based on my own confusion or what I would consider to be a better way to release the tracks. This certainly does not mean that it was flawless, but putting all my little gripes to one side, I will put my hands up and say that I loved this album.

Cloud Nine – A Review

The long awaited album by Kygo is here! After an original release date of 12th February 2016, Kygo has made us wait for 3 months to finalise something that was apparently 99% done. Technically, it was the longest February on record by Kygo standards. That being said, I was excited to see what he could offer.

After the initial excitement provided by his remix of I See Fire by Ed Sheeran, and the success of his original song, called Firestone, I was eager to see what he could offer. He’s been drip feeding us his songs for a long time now and his tracks make another appearance in the album.

 

Cloud Nine Tracklist (Requires Spotify):

1. Intro
2. Stole The Show feat. Parson James
3. Fiction feat. Tom Odell
4. Raging feat. Kodaline
5. Firestone feat. Conrad Sewell
6. Happy Birthday feat. John Legend
7. I’m In Love feat. James Vincent McMorrow
8. Oasis feat. Foxes
9. Not Alone feat. Rhodes
10. Serious feat. Matt Corby
11. Stay feat. Maty Noyes
12. Nothing Left feat. Will Heard
13. Fragile feat. Labrinth
14. Carry Me feat. Julia Michaels
15. For What It’s Worth feat. Angus & Julia Stone

Other notable tracks that aren’t on the album are:

Firestone (Live Acoustic Version)
Firestone (Fireworks Version)
Stole the Show (Acoustic Version)

The first impressions that I got from this album is that there are some tracks that seemed a bit half baked. Overall the album was very good. He is consistent in the type of vibe that he wants to produce. The introduction to the album is very chilled and opens beautifully into one of my personal favourites, Stole the Show. It’s not to say that all the songs were pleasing to the ear. Some tracks I personally thought sounded a bit out of place. In an area where Kygo seems to want to establish himself as a Tropical House music producer, some songs just seemed to be there for the sake of being there. But then again, this album (within Insanity, at any rate) has had overall critical acclaim despite the few bugbears that exist within its track listing. Songs like ‘I’m in Love’ (Track 7), is a personal pet hate of mine. It’s just annoying and very whiney.

That being said, the tracks are overall very very good! The combination of interesting mixes and artists, he has produced an album which has risen to the top of my most played on Spotify. Notable mentions include the collaboration that Kygo did with Foxes to produce Oasis (Track 8). It is a fantastic song which utilises all aspects of Foxes’ vocal talents. Carry Me has a lot of similarities with Avicii’s Broken Arrows, but he’s using a winning formula to produce something that was pleasing on the ear and (dare I say it), better than the original. Give them a listen and you will see the similarities.

In the end, this is just my personal thoughts, but overall I feel this is a very strong debut album by Kygo.

BBC Radio 1 – The Student Radio Playlist 2016

GIG REVIEW – KraftKlub

It would be wrong of me to say that I was excited to see them. Truth be told, I didn’t know that much about KraftKlub apart from the fact that they were German. What else is there to say really?

So who are KraftKlub?

KraftKlub are a German Rock/Indie band that also integrates some aspects of rap into their music! They are very popular in Germany, but despite this, are unknown unless you play FIFA 13.

My housemate seemed to think that I would enjoy it. I wasn’t so sure. I was clearly the sceptic among the party of three that were representing Egham. My housemate joked that it would be hilarious if they had tried to speak English, and to be fair to them, they gave it a good go. They played to their audience and it worked. Really well.

I first heard some of KraftKlub’s music when I played FIFA 13. Whilst listening to them, it gave me a bit of a tast of what to expect. However, versions that I had heard seemed a bit tepid. Kinda like a German kid’s apple strudel (geddit? because it’s a joke…no..?). What needs to be understood is that I didn’t think that I would like them. Not one iota. I would give them a chance, but I predicted that I wouldn’t like them.

How wrong I was.

I LOVED THEM. I really enjoyed the atmosphere inside the o2 Academy during KraftKlub’s set. True to the stereotypes of German efficiency, they started on the dot of 9pm. People always say that hearing a band live is infinitely better than hearing them on a CD or MP3 file. I finally understand why that is. Their energy and their enthusiasm was addictive and it filtered through to the audience. What started out at the beginning as being a ‘ohh I know that song’ turned into a ‘I don’t know this song and I don’t understand this song…but I love it!’ This is what made KraftKlub so great though. Most of the audience were German so they were really into it but it didn’t mean that others could be into or get into that sort of music. It was accessible. It reminded me of how the UK welcomed the likes of Psy, Rammstein, Robin Schulz and Alligatoah as ‘mainstream’ musicians. Sure all of the examples I’ve mentioned are quire niche, but in a way, so is KraftKlub in how they presented themselves.

From what I could tell (my German isn’t really that good), they played two songs which I recognised. One of them Was Eure Madchen and Schusse in die Luft. Not sure what they mean, but I know that they’re really good. After that, I lose them a bit. The odd translation came about but apparently KraftKlub are my new favourite band [Lieblingsband] (they played that one). Also, apparently I don’t want to go to Berlin [Ich will nicht nach Berlin].

I initially thought that I wouldn’t get into KraftKlub and it would be a bit of a miserable night for me. But I was wrong, very wrong. Despite having deadlines which I needed to meet, I couldn’t help but get into the spirit of it all. They were full of energy and they were awesome value for the money that I paid to see them.

7.5/10

Insanity Radio commits to working with Mary Frances Trust

At the beginning of the academic year, the Insanity Radio Community Project, with the support of the Insanity Radio Production Board, launched an initiative to focus our fundraising efforts throughout the 2015 – 2016 academic year. As part of this, we encouraged members of Insanity Radio to put forward bids for charities that we would commit to supporting. We received bids from many presenters and members of the community and the charities that were proposed were carefully considered. After a few weeks of running this initiative, we are pleased to announce that we have come to an agreement about who we will be supporting during this year.

Today, we are proud to announce that we have reached out to the Mary Frances Trust, a mental health charity based in Leatherhead and we will be showing our support to them in future with events which can include (but aren’t limited to) marathon broadcasts, fundraising within the local community and fundraising events on campus.

The Mary Frances Trust offers a variety of services for people suffering from consequences of their mental ill health. Some of the services they provide directly and other services are being provided by, or jointly with, their partners. All of their services are designed to support people’s wellbeing and help them on their way to recovery.

After the decision was made, Insanity Radio Assistant Station Manager, Conor Ryan said “it’s such a wonderful charity, and such a wonderful cause. We look forward to working with them in the future.’

If you’d like more information on the Mary Frances Trust and what they do to support the local community, please go to their website.

Pick of the Week | Ed Sheeran – All Of The Stars

No spoilers, I promise, but allow me if you will to drop in a reference, now and again. Okay? Okay.

So… the Fault In Our Stars soundtrack was released yesterday. The critically acclaimed book, The Fault In Our Stars by Vlogbrother and all round awesome guy, John Green will be gracing cinemas worldwide in the coming weeks and months. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to the film, but I have been more interested to see who will feature in the soundtrack.

Soundtracks are important..

It is one of a plethora of aspects which makes or breaks a film. With that in mind, the levels of excitement that I felt, rose when I heard that Ed Sheeran was going to be one of a whole host of artists featured in the TFIOS movie. The artists ranging from Jake Bugg and Kodaline, to Charlie XCX and Birdy!

‘I See Fire’ is the main song that featured during the credits roll of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and it turns out, he’ll be playing people out once more with his new song – All of the Stars. I was curious about this song the most. So, naturally, I gave it a quick listen.

 

I have chosen it as my pick of the week..

..because it sounds like the perfect way to close out a film like this. Based on what I know about the film (which is very little, it has to be said…), it juxtaposes what happens at the very end of the film.

It is certainly a very soothing song which I thoroughly enjoyed. I wish I had the ability to describe the song to you, but the world is not a wish granting factory. There will be that one missing adjective that would just make the description seem…incomplete.

So instead, all I will say is that I highly recommend you listen to the song!

 


As a little sidenote.. 

This time next week, two Insanity Radio presenters will be presenting live on air for 128.7 hours (5 and a half days) to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust and Mary Francis Trust. However, this is not just an Insanity Radio event, it is going to be livestreamed by the team at rhubarbTV!

During that period, I would love it if you could support Sarah and Hitchen as they go and push themselves to boundaries that are yet unknown. More details will be coming out very soon, so check out the InsanityEvents and InsanityRadio twitter accounts, the facebook page and the website for more details.

Donations are always welcomed, but food, hugs and love for them is just as important. So please show your support to them and for them!

Band Members
Raphael Hurwitz – Vocals, Acoustic, Keys, Violin, Viola
Jonny Wanders – Electric Guitar, Vocals
Alexander Hurwitz – Bass, Cello
Ross Ullmann – Keys
Marco Cristaudo – Drum, Percussion

Key Influences
Jeff Buckley, Muse, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, Rage Against The Machine, The Frames

 

Background

Audiogold have described themselves as being the heavier side of Coldplay with a twist of Radiohead and Jeff Buckley-esque vocals. Audiogold’s driving grooves, stunning melodies and intricate arrangements have made many ears prick up. Including The Arctic Monkeys and Kodaline.

Having worked tirelessly over the last 3 years in the London scene crafting their live performance the band of five twenty-somethings took their opportunity to work along side great producers such as Chris D’adda and Giles Barrett/Simon Trought, who have had great success with artists such as Kodaline and the Maccabees. Audiogold went into the studio with a more raw and organic sound, stripping away superfluous elements and bringing emotion and passion back into the music they love.

Though perhaps regarded most closely with the ‘Alternative/Rock’ genre the band are always venturing into different musical elements and experimentation, pushing what can be achieved and the soundscapes that can be crafted. Due to such musical diversity Audiogold have had the privilege to play with the likes of Bastille and The Steepwater Band amongst others.

Not the type of band to stand still; when they aren’t writing or performing, Audiogold actively support the local music scene running live music nights and expanding their musical family. Never afraid to try something new and always ready to go, Audiogold are here to make a difference.
