Yonatan Gat



This is just awesome.

SOOOOOOOOOOOO good.

In his own words..

"Guitarist virtuoso, Yonatan Gat (Monotonix) has shared "Goldrush", the first single from his new album, Director, out March 3rd on Joyful Noise Recordings.

Like most of Director, "Goldrush" was improvised and recorded live without overdubs, including the call-and-response riffs that kick in half way through the song.  All performed on one guitar, playing simultaneous lead and rhythm throughout the track."

Amazing stuff!!!



Here is another very impressive track.

Beatsofreen x AceMyth - You're Safe With Me (Future Beats)

You're Safe With Me cover art


I've posed about Beetsofreen many times before and he's back with another brilliant collaboration, this time with Acemyth.

In their own words...

"From the States to the Netherlands, Beatsofreen (Darker Than Wax, NL) and Acemyth (USA) present their special double release entitled “You’re Safe With Me". Two unique but strongly related pieces were created out of the same stems, to express the deeper meaning of these beautiful words. 

Beatsofreen’s version contains four different but complementary elements. Starting with a folky guitar intro, than builds up into electronic patterns. And just when you’re used to the rhythms it rigorously changes into a wonky trap part, before all the different sounds are brought back together into the third and fourth part. The story ends with a floating soundscape. 

AceMyth’s version of You’re Safe With Me is exactly what these words stand for: the way he used subtle drums and future sounds in combination with deep jazzy chord progressions gives you that strongly relieved feeling, that there is no need to worry about anything at all, that you ├íre safe."
