UNITED FESTIVAL

I still haven’t got my ticket! Payday is but days away and I am itching to bag my slot and embrace – no, UNITE with my fellow ravers. Really, I should posting this after I have purchased, just in case I am completely shooting myself in the foot and the last of the tickets officially sell out. I will take my chances with music destiny, I will be unselfish. I will share the love!

This is set to be a banging festival. Truth be told, I hadn’t actually heard of this one untill several weeks ago. I suspect I should be ashamed of myself for not having heard of it, but there we go – it did only debut last year. I heard it through the grapevine, checked out the line up and thought OH MY RAVEGOD! I need to go to this. Pied Piper? DJ Luck and MC Neat? Grooverider?! Yes please! Take me back to the good old days! Who really wants to be sitting on the sofa on a Sunday afternoon, watching Time Team over an unwanted plate of brussel sprouts, longing for some filthy old school rave beats? Not this Sunday the 13th of September. Not on my watch!

Tickets are sadly no longer going for a mere £20. Last release tickets are now £40. But whats an extra £20 for an action packed day celebrating over 25 years of British rave culture, with over 150 acts and 8 arenas – all in one field?

Please save me a ticket! Possible review pending…FINGERS, TOES AND LIMBS CROSSED!

United Festival Line Up

Yes! Now tracks like this is exactly why I started blogging about music. Absolutely loving ‘Pains 4 U’ by CASH+DAVID and have had it on repeat for a while now. Thank you very much to Partisan PR for sharing this one with me.

Cash+David are streaming their new single, ‘Pains 4 U’, via The Fader. Featuring a guest verse from rising Atlanta MC Rome Fortune, this track is due for release through Columbia Records on October 30th, 2015. Speaking about the track, Liz Lawrence (David) and Tim Ross (Cash) say: ‘Pains 4 U is a hypnotic repent – a call for redemption after a colossal loss. It’s a mantra of contrition with the desire to pay off a debit of pain’.

I am guilty of ignoring the lyrics of most songs, but you simply cannot ignore the message behind ‘Pains 4 U’. I think this one that will resonate with many. Irresistable beats with equally iridescent lyrics, this is a class new single for CASH+DAVID! RRR wishes them all the best for the upcoming release in October.

New Single – ‘Pains 4 U’ Feat. Rome Fortune- October 30 2015

Thank you to A & M Entertainment Inc. for sharing this track – “Tearing Down the Walls” by The Fascinated.

Singer/Songwriter Beki Colada has teamed up with music composer/producer Lionel Cohen to create the Hollywood-based 80’s-influenced synth-pop duo, “The Fascinated”.

Followers of RRR will know that I usually go for some hearty bass lines and sturdy wobbles, but every so often, I like to spice it up with some feel good pop – and who doesn’t appreciate the sweet sounds of the 80s, right?

“Tearing Down the Walls” is exactly the type of track I envisage on an episode of Made in Chelsea [LA style]…slow mo shots of posh ladies cruising in a convertible on a sunny day – their hair whipping in the wind, armed with a boot rammed with new shoes and fancy dresses. Cool sounds – nice summer vibes. I am looking forward to hearing more from The Fascinated!

In fact…as Londoners North, East, South and West tragically mourn a failing August Summer and I sit here with rain pouring through my window, I have decided to embrace the entire selection of tracks by The Fascinated on Sound Cloud, whilst imagining myself at a swanky cocktail party in the sweet lands of California. Caifornia Dreamin’ and all that!

If you ever get the chance to see Groove Armada live, you must go immediately! The Groove Armada set at Lovebox 2015 was a truly epic and utterly unforgettable experience! Crowd surfing on inflatable beer bottles, ridiculous levels of confetti, a heaving bass, incredible live Alladinesque performers…this has to be up there for one of the best festival gigs I have been to. Five star!
