Live Gig: Discovery 2 with Cold Fever, J. Appiah, Heidi Happy and Helene Greenwood

The Justin Wayne Show - Sun, 03/15/2015 - 12:05


Another live podcast of Discovery 2 live performances finally released! You’ll hear live performances and interviews from Cold Fever who play a new style of reggae and alternative urban from J. Appiah and his band. We also have interviews and some album tracks from Swiss singer and multi-instrumentalist Heidi Happy, and alternative pop/folk/jazz artist Helene Greenwood.

A big thanks to our woman-on-the-ground for this event Alex Marini – she did a wonderful job filling in for Claire while she was away and we’d have her back in a minute!

More about the artists Cold Fever

Producer/songwriter/rapper, Bhumeet Kala-Lee was fed on a musical diet of reggae, jazz and soul by his Jamaican father and Indian mother. His imagination was harnessed by hip-hop and UK grime, drawing the young radical to a fondness for storytelling through rhyming couplets. ‘Desi Reggae’ was born through fusing, mixing, and synergizing the tones of his musical influences.

He’s shared stages with Example, Wretch 32, Skepta, Lawson, The Wanted and Olly Murs. He has also collaborated with artists such as Beenie Man, Aswad, Freddie McGregor, The PropheC, and Jenna Garcia (songwriter for Britney Spears, Cassie, Ja-Rule and Lloyd) to name a few.


Hailing from Hackney East London, J.Appiah is a fast-rising, urban alternative, singer/songwriter who is truly making an impact on the UK scene with his nonchalant musicality, understated intelligent lyricism and touching vocals.

“Surely positioned for future success” – 4 Music

Heidi Happy

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Heidi Happy stops over in London to release her latest album Golden Heart. She charms the crowd with her incredibly smooth and genuine voice, catchy melodies and lyrics which reach from upbeat to melancholic moods, and not least her winning personality. She has collaborated with Yello, Stephan Eicher and Scott Matthew, been in top 10 Swiss Album Charts, CMJ top 200 Charts) and performanced at (Paleo Gurten Festival, Heiteren Gampel, Festi’Neuch, Rock Oz Arenes (CH), Eurosonic Festival (NL), CMJ (USA), Reeperbahnfest, Popkomm (DE), Midem (FR), CMW, NXNE (CAN ), CMEA’s Tour 2013 (UK) to name a few). She pushes musical styles to their limits.

Helene Greenwood

Inspired by Ella Fitzgerald, as well contemporary artists like Björk, Lisa Hannigan, Jesca Hoop and Fiona Apple, Helene writes about every day life and human interaction. Her music is a mix of contemporary, alternative pop with shades of both folk and jazz .

Helene’s debut album Collectable You was awarded an incredible 4/5 star review from The Sunday Express’s – Martin Townsend. Describing Helene as a, “burst of freshness and vitality,” and, “one to watch.”

Ashwan: Mauerspechte (the light) ditto ditto

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 03/15/2015 - 12:00

AshwanLongtime CCMixter user Ashwan, originally from Liverpool, says he recently was “seduced by fellow CCMixter Ditto Ditto’s remix of Snowflakes ‘The Light'” when he put together today’s featured Daily Dose track. Conjoined with this epiphany in track creation, he says that he was also “inspired by the anniversary of the Berlin wall coming down recently and how that can function as a metaphor for the groundbreaking work that everyone involved in the music site ccmixter is doing.”

In addition to mixing the music you are hearing here today, Ashwan is a visual and multimedia artist with works in private and corporate collections worldwide. The sample here that accompanies the track is entitled ‘Electric Relaxation’ and you can find much more on his artist website below. The user profiles for both Ashwan and Ditto Ditto at CCMixter are also included if you’d like to see what projects they’ve worked on.

Stephen Doster: Arizona

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 03/13/2015 - 13:00
Stephen Doster “My name’s on the back of many more records than on the front,” says Austin-based producer, songwriter and guitarist, Stephen Doster, whose name has appeared on dozens of records, including credits with Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Dr. John. “Arizona is only my fourth record as an artist,” he says, “But it’s the record I always hoped I would make.”

Since the late 2014 release of Arizona, Doster’s first solo album in 18 years, the record has established a substantial foothold in his home base of Austin.

The recognition has been a long time coming for this songwriter, producer, and guitarist, whose musical story starts in 1982, when he was a young man on top of the world, recording his debut album with James Honeyman-Scott of The Pretenders producing it.

Edinburgh Man #199

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 03/12/2015 - 19:21

No live podcast tonight I’m afraid. But there is this one… this one was recorded last night. Dr Nic was out last night and Edinburgh Man Junior seemed to be rather soundly asleep, so I thought I’d record the podcast 24 hours early. It also seems like Dr Nic and I haven’t had a night in for ages, so if I did a pre-record then we’d have Thursday evening to ourselves. I realise that sounds romantic, but to be quite honest those episodes of House of Cards aren’t going to watch themselves.
