Van Dale “Van Dale is a rock trio from Columbus, Ohio featuring two members of Way Yes. Van Dale’s approach is as back-to-basics as it gets, deploying drums, bass, and loads of guitar in the pursuit of melodically charged alt-rock straight out of 1994.”
[bio via Fleeting Youth Records]

Speak Yellow is Van Dale’s second single from their forthcoming self-titled album due out March 31st on Fleeting Youth Records

Live Gig: Discovery 2 with Ask Martin, Elektric and Millie Manders

The Justin Wayne Show - Tue, 03/17/2015 - 18:50


It’s ladies night at Discovery 2, a night full of female-fronted, emerging bands. You’ll hear full live sets and interviews from three of the four artists who performed there. You’ll hear urban, indie dance band Ask Martin, Elektric who fuses old school hip hop, R&B and electronica, and finally singer/songwriter Millie Manders who incorporates everything from rock and soul to ska.

More about the artists Ask Martin

Young all-female three-piece band born in the heart of London’s Camden music scene in late 2013. They mix ‘synthy’ electronica with quirky British vocals and catchy guitar lines with resounding drum and bass to create a new, urban/indie-dance sound. They’ve been described as “like a burger with layers of synths, bass, guitars, and garnishes of cutesy, shrill vocals”

With infectious and energising performances and the explosive chemistry between the three girls, they have captivated audiences and transformed bystanders into fans in very little time. They’ve playing  at venues s ‘The Garage’ in Islington and the Islington 02 Academy. They have been working with Producer Spider. L. Johnson (Tinie Tempah, Stevie Wonder and Kylie Minogue.)


The three talented young women of Ask Martin have been working with some of the best in the London music industry.


Hailing from the Midlands, 22 year old Elektric fuses old school Hip Hop and RnB with electronica backed up with an accessible singer, songwriter style.

Elektric’s music is refreshing and original whilst representing and championing the underground vibe of the Midland’s cool kid scene. She uses her Music to express what its like to be a young, gay, female artist in 21st century Britain. Taking influences from all genres of music from reggae, soul and hip hop, to pop rock, indie and most importantly her life.
Currently signed to producer baby J, who has produced for Amy Winehouse, Estelle, Skinnyman, Dead Prez , Alex Blood, Jamie Joseph. Songs from her Ep ‘Not Another Love Song’ are receiving airplay on BBC Introducing & 1 Xtra

Millie Manders

A bubbly, bright singer songwriter from South London who writes punchy, punky, bouncy rock pop songs that get you on your feet and moving.  A colourful clash of genres incorporating everything from rock and soul to ska and folk. Scratch the surface though and lyrically her tough upbringing and life experiences can be felt too.  She toured in 2013 as part of The Brought To You Tour – a collection of unsigned artists.   Online radio stations such as Shoreditch, Croydon, London Unsigned, Krystal and Blast Radio have interviewed her, featured her music and used her to co-host shows. BBC Norfolk very recently featured her track ‘Raw’ on their show hosted by Sophie Little.

“This lady is a star in the making, and if you catch her early enough you’ll get to gloat that you were there at the beginning.” –

“She’s got the makings of a successful musician, and I’d love to be there saying “I told you so!” when she is more widely recognised!” –

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

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.
