New dance combo Woolfman and JStew inject some late summer sun

Urban nightlife has always heralded a heartfelt sanctuary for escapism and positivity. Such is the message from a new transatlantic collaboration: Woolfman and JStew who urge all to shed their burdens and ‘Listen to the Beat’.

Woolfman and JStew

This is an absolute stomper of a dance track and is nothing short of vibrant – coming in hot with a vision to inject new life into what they perceive as a colourless tapestry of music today. Heavy bass rhythm announces it’s presence on the scene before being interjected with mischievous and playful piano chords. JStew plays circus-master, leading you through the vision with guile and charisma; one moment taking you by the hand to sour through air before suddenly bright lights flash and you’re part of the masses that answered to call to ‘Listen to the Beat’.

The project itself is one that seeks to progress as a mainstream brand evolving from a club base as a collaboration between producer and artist, with future projects centering around different artists. Add in Steve Simpson at Concrete Promotions who played the vanilla version to ‘Mr E’ and come back with 2 special remixes of the track.

The Woolfman has been lurking in the shadows of the music scene for quite some time now. From a heritage of 90’s music and industry experience, Woolfman claims his creative insight for crafting tunes has come to him ‘’in dreams’’ and this is a recurring concept that embodies this track in particular with what they are trying to accomplish.

US Gospel singer JStew, who is also a pastor at his local church back in San Francisco, draws inspiration from heroic titans such as Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye arriving with his own vision to make wonderfully vibrant and exciting music. JStew’s personal angle is one of gospel in his heart saying: “I believe my grounding in this vibrant style of music gives shape to my current style. I sing from my heart…” Through this comes transcendence through music, born from dreams. Distinguishably Woolfman, one of the founding members of Gang of Four, was kicked out of the band for “meditating in soundcheck”.

As dusk finally settles on this most memorable of summers, don’t let the colours fade. A new sun has risen, and this one thrives at night as well. And it also mixes great with a dash of tequila.

Get the mulled wine ready – Jon McDevitt releases contemporary, creative Christmas single ‘Father Christmas’

Geist’s former frontman and writer, Jon McDevitt, is returning with his alternative take on a festive anthem, ‘Father Christmas’.

Out today, ‘Father Christmas’ avoids the cliché of the typical Christmas song – really making people think about its meaning and thus helping them understand what Christmas is truly about.

Stream here: https://soundcloud.com/jon-mcdevitt/01-father-christmas-m1-08-09-16-01-44100hz-24bits

McDevitt’s Christmas sing-along includes thoughtful lyrics by co-writer Dominic Hudson which paint Father Christmas as a figure missing from Christmas, whilst allowing the listener to interpret it as to how or why.  An infectious melody, combined with Jon McDevitt’s harmonious vocals make for a great, catchy, Christmas single that you just cannot argue with.

Jon McDevitt has a number of local shows lined up to support the single release – you can see the full list here: http://www.jonmcdevitt.com/

What Drink?

Mulled Wine of course! Sit back, relax and get yourself in the festive spirit with the help of McDevitt’s contemporary Christmas classic.
