Francisco Bayon ‘When I Call You’ Review

Francisco Bayo¦ün - When I Call You

The Skype call inspired  ‘When I Call You’  by Francisco Bayon is an uplifting and unique summer anthem. Featuring accordion throughout the track builds up to a huge festival ready texture from just the Skype ringtone. I think everyone can agree that it is a very creative way of using the ringtone. Francisco’s fantastic vocals then come in and deliver some very catchy lyrics and melodic combinations that have been going round in my head for ages after listening to it. Go and get it now!

Impressive electronic rework of Adam & the Ants’ Kings of the Wild Frontier by Johnny Normal (featuring Marco Pirroni)

Electronic musician Johnny Normal delivers this shiny synth-driven rework of Adam & the Ants’ 1980 classic album Kings of the Wild Frontier.

Reaching number 1 in the UK album chart and spawning three hit singles ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’, ‘Dog Eat Dog’ and ‘Antmusic’, the original Kings of the Wild Frontier has left its legacy on the world.

Johnny Normal’s download only rework celebrates 36 years since the original release, and sees the talented producer recording his own unique versions of all of the songs. The album features double Ivor-Novello Award-Winning Ants songwriter and guitarist Marco Pirroni.

The album project was initially the idea of Adam Ant himself, who liked the style of Johnny’s music.

As Johnny explains: ‘My version of KOTWF is not meant as a copycat album as we could never improve on such a classic, rather an Ant fan’s homage to the fabulously exciting original record by Adam, Marco and co which had such an impact on my life and the lives of millions of the MTV generation.

The project sees Johnny teaming up with close friend and guitarist Psycho Pete and backing vocalist/bass player Izzie voodoo.  Whilst on tour supporting Adam Ant, Johnny and Psycho played several of their own electronic interpretations of Ants songs, performing to crowds of up to 3000 people. The performances were well-received by audience members, cementing the idea for the duo to create their own electronic cover album.

In 2014, the project came to a frightening halt when Johnny Normal was hospitalised in three intensive-care units with a succession of life-threatening illnesses. His life support was turned off twice and he was expected not to survive. Beating the odds, he pulled through, his family requesting that the unfinished album be played whilst he was in his coma, spurring him on to fight death. ‘I have no doubt this provided me with a subconscious link to the outside world and aided my recovery,’ Johnny has stated.

Appealing to both Adam and the Ants fans and electronic music lovers, it’s a record that all kinds of music enthusiasts can get into.

There will be an ‘album listening party event’ in London on Friday 17th June, tickets and info from www.johnnynormal.net

The album will be released Friday 17th June 2016

Half-Filipino/Austrian Beatboxer Pipo releases new song ‘No Go!’ as part of Loopexx

 Loopexx is a new exciting duo featuring half-Filipino/Austrian human drum machine Pipo (aka James Philip Platzer) and Austrian singer and guitarist Eric K.

Their unique style is a blend of beatboxing, distorted guitars and positive lyrics that inspire social change.

‘No Go!’ is their latest single, criticising the ignorance of society that leads to violence, which will be released on June 3rd. Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1vcLDxj3kM&feature=youtu.be

Loopexx have already released previous single – emphatic pop/rock tune ‘Here We Are, There We Go’– carrying motivating lyrical themes and all profit going to charity.

Both from very different backgrounds, Pipo comes from an r&b background whilst Eric’s background is primarily in rock.

The pair’s altruistic outlook is a reflection of the difficulties they have both had to face in life and having to overcome them.

Whilst living in Austria, Pipo has battled with racism for his Filipino roots. He is the lucky survivor of 2013 cyclone, Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded. Pipo has family in the Philippines who he regularly visits.

Eric meanwhile was forced to abandon a promising career as a professional footballer after an injury in 1991, unable to walk for an entire year.

Loopexx’s quirky musical concoction of rock and hip hop and their world-encompassing message of unity and philanthropy make them an inspirational and exciting new group in this generations bustling musical landscape.

As with previous tracks, all profits gained from this single go to charity.

Andrea Di Giovanni releases atmospheric new electropop single ‘I’ll Take Care of Myself’

ATTENTION! This is a sweeeeetbeat…

21-year-old Italian-born singer, Andrea Giovanni, is set to release atmospheric new electropop song, ‘I’ll Take Care of Myself’, set to drop April 15th. Taking influence vocally from Sam Smith and Jess Glynne, the artist delivers a soaring vocal performance that has the potential to appeal both to underground fans and the masses. Marco Casaluce produces the instrumental, opening with brooding synth swells before erupting with some hard-hitting bass.

Catch a teaser here: https://soundcloud.com/andrea-di-giovanni-2/ill-take-care-of-myself-teaser-andrea-di-giovanni

Raised in Rome, Andrea moved to the UK in 2013 to pursue his dreams as a singer. A sufferer of the rare skin condition vitiligo, Andrea was bullied in the youth for the affliction putting him in a very dark place. His strict Catholic upbringing also made it hard for him to openly come to terms with his bixesuality. Moving to the UK, he was able to finally find acceptance, learning to embrace them as strengths instead of weaknesses.

As he explains himself, ‘I started to see vitiligo as my edge and distinctive characteristic of my personality, a strength. I decided to show it in the covert art-work of the single, ‘taking care of myself’ means also the ability to transform what you’ve always considered weaknesses into beautiful strengths.

Andrea also has an EP ‘Soultrip’ on the way scheduled for release in July.

‘The Syndrome of Peter Pan’ is available November 20th

You can watch the superb video here:

Kuerty Uyop is a product of Motown and soul. Having grown up listening to no nonsense black funk such as Stevie Wonder, James Brown and Prince, it is evident the dynamic duo bring all the aspects of funk and soul to the table with their up and coming, hard hitting release ‘The Syndrome of Peter Pan.’

Hailing from Italy and Scotland, Kuerty Uyop is a collaborative project between a former Scottish priest and Italian karateka. This being said, they have both the power of prayer and martial arts behind them so watch out. If this wasn’t enough backing, many notable Italian DJs such as Piotta, Cor Veleno, Flaminio Maphia and Sottotono have gotten behind the music making for a strong start to a what will be a massive release.

Combining an interesting mix of European house, techno and elements of classic singwriting, Kuerty Uyop are confident that this original blend of established genres will propel them international stardom.

‘The Syndrome of Peter Pan’ is out November 20th.

Elle is now moving on to solo ventures having recently written and recorded a pop album entitled ‘Ugly Beautiful’ produced by big names James Ruddick and Paul Johnston at Rhythm Studios.

Watch ‘So’ here:

The influence of Dale Griffin and Mott the Hoople has had a profound effect on Elle and in some ways has shaped her latest offering. His presence, support and encouragement was instrumental in her success and it is evident a significant amount of talent has been passed on to his protégé.
