Sam checks out The Beekeepers feat. Mystro ‘Queen Bee’

Posted on 14 June 2011 by Mizzle

When first given the choice to review The Beekeepers collaboration with UK Rapper Mystro ‘Queen Bee’ I initially turned it down as UK hip hop is really not my scene, being more into my Rock. However, saying that I decided to see what it was all about.

The different remixes whether it was by ‘Hint‘ fun clubbie mix or ‘Parker‘ Remix, which I found was rather dub steppie, or ‘Dr Rubberfunk‘ using a funky as hell fuzz guitar riff, each one gives a very different feel to the original uptempo party hip hop track, with their changing back beats and timing to the tracks.

Listening to this type of music reminds me of one of my favourite films ‘Street Dance’ with it mixing the old with the new. As you listen to the wide range of remixes it gives you the feeling of being in a club blasting out loud music whilst dancing till you can’t feel your feet any more.

I really enjoyed listening to this as it reminds me that even though you may just like one type of music for now you should always be open to experience new things as your tastes can change, you can be surprised, I was.
If you’re like me and you are now intrigued to hear more check out all the mixes here The Beekeepers, you can also catch them playing at Glastonbury this year too!

Glastonbury Update: Primal Scream to follow Mumford and Sons on The Other Stage

Posted on 03 March 2011 by Mizzle

Friday night at Glastonbury 2011 will see the Scottish alternative group go head to head with Irish giants U2, who will be performing on the Pyramid Stage, reports The Metro.

It has also been revealed that Mumford & Sons will be performing before Primal Scream take to the uniquely named Other Stage.

The four man folk-rock band consisting of Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall and Ted Dwane will serenade the crowds with their award winning blend of poignant vocals, and country-inspired melodies featuring instruments such as banjo, accordion and mandolin.

The Brit-winners will then make way for the ‘euphoric rock ‘n’ roll’ sound of comeback kings Primal Scream, as described by lead singer Bobby Gillespie in a recent interview with music magazine NME.

Today’s announcement also saw the unveiling of several other acts including The Chemical Brothers, Laura Marling, Friendly Fires and Warpaint.

Rumours of a Foo Fighters appearance are as yet unconfirmed, so watch this space.

Glastonbury Festival is set to go ahead from the 23rd to 28th of June 2011.  Tickets are unfortunately sold out, but keep an eye on the website for a chance to snap up any cancellations in April: www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk
