May 21, 2021 DJ Wax Tailor keeps it moving and grooving in hip hop remix

DJ Wax Tailor keeps it moving and grooving in hip hop remix

Back in 2019, the world of trip-hop began to stir as Wax Tailor released the disturbingly captivating single, The Light and murmurs of more releases began to arise. Early 2020 the producer released the unmistakable single, Keep It Movin featuring D Smoke, the winner of Netflix’sRhythm + Flow” competition. The release of ‘Keep It Movin’ came at a dark time, as the pandemic set in and the world was confronted with the truth of police brutality in a harsh yet undeniable way. However, the upbeat, anthemic nature of the song managed to set a tone of hope and acknowledgement that we are in control of our own destiny while the accompanying funky music video provided some much-needed relief. 

The releases for Wax Tailor continued as he built towards his album, Shadow Of Our Suns which was released at the start of this year. The album showcased the vocals of numerous talented artists including Mark Lanegan in the rock-infused ‘Just A Candle’, Rosemary Standley the melancholic ‘Misery’ and Adeline in the mind-bending ‘Deja Vu’. You can read our full feature on the album here. The producer took time to introduce each of the artists on his socials and highlighting the reasons he chose to work with them.

Stream/ download: ‘Keep Movin ft. D Smoke (WT Remix)’ 

This year, Wax Tailor continues to provide the world with new music, returning to and reworking his own sound into something new. The first of these remixes was our favourite – as he took on ‘Keep It Movin’ and reworked it, keeping a focus on the talented D Smoke’s vocals while infusing it with a bit more of Wax Tailor’s signature sound. Next, came the remixes for Everybody, originally featuring Del The Funky Homosapien and eventually receiving a remix from South African artist Kanif The Jhatmaster as well as Wax Tailor himself.

May 21, 2021 Electronic jazz musician SENU share ‘Jetlag’ song

Electronic jazz musician SENU share ‘Jetlag’ song

Today, Friday 21st May 2021 sees the release of Jetlag– the debut album from SENU

The release of ‘Jetlag’ will be celebrated with a launch show, ‘Jetlag’ performed in its entirety, filmed live at Fuel HQ in Dublin, to be streamed on Nialler9’s YouTube channel at 8pm on Friday 21st May.

In addition, MCD has announced that tickets for SENU’s headline show at The Grand Social on 22nd February 2022 will go on sale today at 9am via Ticketmaster

Over the past year producer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Killeen has been releasing his original music under the moniker SENU, a vehicle for his unique blend of electronic beats, jazz and hip-hop. Today, he releases ‘Jetlag’ – the debut album from SENU

A sprawling electronic soundscape documenting a journey from Ireland to New York and back again, this is an album borne out of experimentation in more ways than one. Frustrated by insomnia, Sam challenged himself to write and record an album in one day. ‘Jetlag’ is the result of this experiment.

“Jetlag, as a whole, is about an experience meeting one of my musical idols, Evan Marien. I ended up staying in New York with him for a week and on return to Ireland I was overwhelmed with sleep deprivation, so I decided to challenge myself by attempting to write a full album in one night. This album is the result,” says SENU of the album’s origins.

As Nialler9 wrote in 2018: “If you’re well versed in the Irish music scene, you’ve probably tripped across Sam Killeen before.” Sam is well known for his work as a professional guitarist and musical director, having worked with the likes of James Vincent McMorrow, The Divine Comedy, Lisa Hannigan, Villagers, Loah, Bantum and more. Recently, he conducted strings for The Scratch’s album anniversary show (watch here). With his original music, he has supported acts such as Mark Guiliana, Cory Wong and the aforementioned Evan Marien.

Sam says: “As a session musician, my job usually involves writing and performing parts to music that specifically suits someone else’s style, whatever the genre may be. SENU became a place where I could push my boundaries creatively using the styles I love the most: electronic, jazz & hip hop music.”

While SENU is a vehicle for Sam to express his individual style, he is quick to credit the guest vocalists on the album with adding a new dimension to it. “Having Jamel Franklin [of Shy Mascot] and Caoi De Barra [of Wyvern Lingo] write on the album really lifted the music from its prior instrumental state,” he says. “Lyrics have been a great input to the music by the additional dialogue creating a space and image to the song. Both Caoi and Jamel have a unique energy and it was a real joy creating music with them.”

May 14, 2021 Musician Jerry Folk reinvents himself with indie-pop single

We love it when an artist reinvents themselves and we like to eagerly sit on the sidelines, watching which new way the producer may turn. Jerry Folk, with the launch of his side project, FENGSEL, has just done this. While his previous single, ‘Everything’, was in a closer style to his older work, ‘On My Way ft. Bearson’ (released today via Folkestad Recordings) takes a turn towards the indie-pop.

Stream ‘On My Way (ft. Bearson)’ on SpotifyiTunes

Jerry Folk tells fans about the creation of the video: “Bearson and I sat in the studio one day and tried to make something “medieval-sounding”. I put together a quick beat and Jakob (Bearson) freestyled some vocals over the track. We ended up making the whole song in an hour or so.”

Bearson is a longtime friend of Jerry Folk and has created official remixes for ZAYN and James Bay as well as working with Børns, Lemaitre and Anna Of The North. The two are both based in Oslo, but have created a single to spark the joy of travel in your heart. We hear news there’s an upcoming album in the works for Jerry Folk and we’re looking forward to seeing where this new path leads the artist. For now, if ‘On My Way’ isn’t completely scratching that Jerry Folk itch, we recommend you also check out the music video for ‘Everything’ here. However, we doubt you’ll need to. ‘On My Way’ is pretty spectacular by itself.
