TAMLA KAHN.

 

 Today we speak to an up and coming South African three-piece rock outfit Tamla Kahn. Now they have an interesting story, coming from a small Limpopo town and relocating to Gauteng to keep up with demand to see them play. What’s the history of Tamla Kahn and origin of your name? John joined the band on 6 February, 2010 and we consider this our official birthday. Before he joined, the band had gone through several working titles, but it was everyone’s decision in the end to call the band Tamla Kahn –Tamla’s full name being Tamla Kahn McMahon– not only because Tamla had started the band, but also because it is original and unique, and we didn’t just want a […]

 LESSON ONE. Industrial with glamour -positive sounds and negative beats. That’s what you can expect from France’s legendary K-Beriet.  START RUNNING. History of your project? I met them at a private event in Belgium in 2011. They played 4 songs of their new album, and I really liked it. We spent the whole night together, and we had a lot of fun.

  The Eschatrilogy: Book of the Dead. (2012.) Another Friday, another interview. Today we speak to British Actor, Writer, Director and Producer, Dan Smyth. Smyth has worked on numerous productions in various roles and positions. Kun. (2012.) When did you first know you wanted to become an actor? What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you?

I studied interactive design at University after finishing my A Levels (in four subjects that really had nothing to do with film!), and it was that course that let me try out film […]

LEVEL 2.0

 

 WHITE LIES! Trolling the internet for music, as I normally do, I stumbled across Level 2.0 an American Future Pop/EBM outfit, with very catchy and familiar Synth lines that make you want to raise your hands in the air, base lines that demand you stomp your feet too in other words, party music. ANGELFIRE! Right I’ll fire away. Level 2.0 tell us a little about the project and its name?
