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.

Hacktivist [Live Review – The Boileroom, Guildford, 8/12/14]

hacktivistHacktivist defy categorisation. Their music is a mix of djent’s brutality and hip-hop’s flamboyance – but it’s impossible to merge those two genre labels without generating results that are…well…pretty shit. ‘Hip-djent’ reads like something you’d spot in an out of touch news rag whose contributors only feel truly comfortable with shameless fearmongering and casual racism, while ‘djent-hop’ sounds like a dance move guaranteed to alienate all but the most loyal friends.

Princess Slayer feat. ShaoDow – ‘Rave Ninja’ [Review]

PS ft. ShaoDowOne of TMMP’s top unsigned artists.

Getting filthier than ever before.

Teaming up with a seriously sick rap don.

And referencing martial arts masterpiece Ong-Bak, and O-Ren Ishii (a key character from Kill Bill). See the videos below if you’ve never seen two of the greatest movies of all time.

This could only be better if it were being played live, in front of my eyes, with a deep thudding kick drum in my guts and those synths churning through the bodies of a field full of fellow festivalgoers. Continue reading
