Princess Slayer [Interview]

princess slayer ep launch showI’ve never made a secret of my love for Princess Slayer’s music. Watching this Guildfordian EDM duo evolve since their emergence onto the UK’s music scene has been a fun and gratifying experience – and very soon, their new EP Living will be ready to make a permanent home in your ear canals. TMMP caught up with vocalist Casey Lim and drummer Vince Welch to talk Living, live music, and happiness…

Your new EP Living is coming out soon. How’re you feeling about that fast-approaching release date?

Excited! A lot of hard work has gone into the creation of this EP. It starts with us writing the songs but we wouldn’t be able to share our work with anyone without the help of our team. So, we feel a lot of gratitude and pride.

Is there an underlying theme behind Living?

Yes. The songs are about different stages and aspects of life and how we experience it as individuals. In a nutshell, Living is about Continue reading

Naomi Scott / Fifi Rong / Geovarn / Princess Slayer / Jungle Doctors / Bella Figura [Live Review – Under The Bridge, London, 26/2/2015]

music week radarAs a music venue embedded into Stamford Bridge (the stadium called home by Chelsea F.C.), Under the Bridge was an appropriately unique venue for this unique show. An industry showcase set up by trade paper Music Week, networking hub MusicConnex, promoters ILUVLIVE, and south coast music school BIMM, it goes without saying that the high-profile nature of this show inevitably brought its own special set of performance pressures. A quality showcase set has the potential to push an act to the next level, while a duff performance can see a band crossed off “Ones To Watch” lists in the blink of an eye.

On top of the potential for mind-freezing attacks of performance anxiety, this was not Continue reading

Beardyman [Interview]

beardyman pressImagine you’re a beatboxer. You’re pretty good, so you enter the UK Beatbox Championships. You win. You eat, breathe, sleep and sweat beatboxing for a solid year before returning. You win again. Things get a bit crazy. A comedy video you made in a kitchen gets uploaded to YouTube (as freshly purchased by Google). In time, it will attract over 5 million views.

Over the next several years, you take solo beatboxing as far as it can possibly be taken. You play underground comedy clubs, TV shows, festivals. Your YouTube presence grows. You begin experimenting with live looping technology, battling not rival MCs but inefficient circuitry and user interfaces in the name of getting the ideas in your head into other people’s earholes. You find yourself in a studio, recording an eclectic collection of tracks that takes in everything from dubstep and hip-hop to almost every international folk music style recorded by history. Your debut album gets released; it sells nicely.

Finally, you hit on a pair of serious problems.  Continue reading

Naughty Boy feat. Sam Smith – ‘La La La’ (Princess Slayer Cover) [Review]

princess slayer press b&wI don’t normally review covers – but fuck me, this track is the perfect excuse to break the rules. Princess Slayer have been consistently bettering themselves since I first discovered them back in 2013 – and this version of La La La is still another positive step into the future for this Guildfordian EDM duo. Casey Lim’s vocal on this track is one of her most emotive so far, while the production is equally top-drawer. Big tune.

TMMP’s EPs & Tracks Of 2014

I have a very strong emotional attachment to many of the releases listed below. Choosing this list was exceptionally tough; I’ve been fortunate to discover some incredible bands and artists over the past year, and it’s safe to say that outside this list lie a great many immense tunes that can be found via a quick browse through TMMP’s archives when you’re done with this lot. However, the following choices are the cream of the crop. Continue reading
