With a new momentum the band is looking to take the mantle once worn by such acts as System of a Down or Rage Against the Machine. Decadent Nation is the new musical voice of resistance and the message has been heard loud and clear as the band have been filling venues on recent tours.
Whether it is their through-the-roof energy live performances or their meticulous musicianship DN’s blues based Alternative Rock sound is as infectiously catchy as it is powerful. The band is hard at work on new material to be released in 2017.
The line up consists of Colin LaVaute – Lead Singer/Guitar, Zack Blomberg – Drums, Devin Burrow – Lead Guitar, Cody Sprock – Bass and Jaeson Longday on guitar.

Jack + Ella are a country duo based in London, UK. Their music is rooted in country, with infectious and catchy pop rock hooks.
Their influences include artists like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, John Mayer, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line and Taylor Swift.
Both Jack and Ella are rock guitarists at heart and love to integrate the sound of rock n roll and male-female vocal harmonies in their country songs.
Jack + Ella met when they were 16 at a young talent competition that their dads had taken them to. Years later, in May 2016, they re-connected after recognising their musical and personality similarities over social media!
They realised very quickly that their writing and playing styles complimented each other too well for them to keep pursuing their own music without each other – and so their official partnership was formed !
The duo are gearing up to release their debut single ‘Hometown’ on 3 April 2017, with an EP entitled ‘Ready’ to follow two weeks after on 17 April 2017. They will then be playing shows across the UK for the rest of the year as well as starting work towards their first studio album.

Time Cero are a rock/alternative/metal band based in Lima, Peru and fronted by their creator Carlos Li Carrillo who moved to Boston USA when he was 18 years old. During his teenage years in Lima, Peru in the mid 80’s, Carlos was the bass player and co-writer of Thrash Metal band “Curriculum Mortis”. Their first material was recently released on a U.S. vinyl edition and sold out 1000+ copies in the first year of release.
During the early 90’s Carlos was in the Progressive Rock band called ‘Avispon Verde’ and recorded 2 records while gigging regularly across the Lima alternative rock scene. In the late 90’s Carlos relocated to Hong Kong where he was influenced by numerous music genres and sounds from different parts of the world delving into digital recording and electronic sounds.
In 2001 while Carlos was travelling around the world, he created Novalima an Electronic collective band. The band mixed different grooves and singers from the around the world with Afroperuvian vocals and percussions.
Novalima became a big success with its first self-titled album on the Lima music scene and they soon signed their ” Afro” album with Mr. Bongo Records based in the U.K.
The song Machete was licensed to the world famous Robert Rodriguez “Machete” movie starring Danny Trejo and Robert De Niro. Later on Novalima released the album Coba Coba which was nominated for the 10th Latin Grammy as Best Alternative Record.
It was after producing one more album in his previous band that Carlos decided to move into different directions and started his current solo project called Time Cero.
Time Cero mixes a combination of styles ranging from Industrial Metal and Rock sounds to tribal and dance percussion. The project was recorded in Lima, Peru and was mixed and mastered by Kevin Paul in London.
Kevin Paul was the head engineer of Mute records and has mixed known bands such as Nick Cave, David Bowie and Depeche Mode. In June 2016, Kevin Paul joined Carlos in Lima,Peru to mix the Surround 5.1 version of the Time Cero album which will be released worldwide on DVD a few months after the digital Stereo release this November.

Countless artists battle to carve define or establish their own musical identity. For some it’s a strenuous process of experimenting with various musical styles in an attempt to stumble upon something that “fits”. From the upcoming release of his debut E.P. “Demarrer” spearheaded by the singles “Anthem” and “Tomorrow” what is apparent about Adreyn Cash is that he is an artist that is not only fully aware of his musical identity but in full natural command of it.
With its routes dug deep within soul music Adreyn Cash’s sound consists of the smooth mixture of emotion and perhaps even fear projecting music that is alternative: dark but by no means depressing. He said ” I create music that people can listen and relate to but also music that reaches out to the person within the one whom we hide from the masses, my music is the voice for the hidden us.
Currently living in London but originally from Kingston, Jamaica (of Taino descent), growing up Adreyn found himself in and around music from an early age. A strong musical heritage consisting of reggae artists RDX, Eric Donaldson and growing up in Church with MNEK, the all-important presence of his mother meant that becoming a musician himself was something he was destined to do.
It wasn’t until the age of 16 however that he started taking his music seriously upon which he was able to flourish at an array of opportunities. He championed renditions of songs such as John Legend’s “Ordinary People” at weddings, birthdays and secondary school performances that on one performance included the Mayor and Mayoress of his borough amongst the delighted audience. Excitement for him as a musician was growing. “The belief was that once he gets into the industry there will be no stopping him”- Mayor of the London Borough of Bromley.
With the acknowledgment of him as a musician increasing, he began playing bigger events for an expanded fan-base that continued to grow ever stronger. This ultimately culminated into an early highlight of his career: performing at the Indig02 in December 2009. The freedom to write produce and sing his own music started the process of writing the demo “Slow Motion” in 2010.
Staying true to emotions inspiring his music “Slow Motion” was recorded to capture a moment in his life where he wished he could dissect his life piece-by-piece to see if he would change anything. Lyrics such as “I’m losing all emotion in my heart, what’s happening? Where do I even start? and the simple and slow harmonious beat consisting of steady string chords and decisive piano chords, gave a glimpse of Adreyn Cash at an embryonic stage as an artist: thoughtful, deep rhythms and vocals.
With an assortment of successful live performances to his name, his attention turned to creating “Demarrer” his first full length EP. The E.P was produced by Rushard Allwood, Jude Gyamfi-Osew Tyrell, Paul Segun Olowu at Allwood’s Studios in South London.
It turns out that mysterious blue shade that flooded his social media accounts a couple of weeks ago was, indeed, a clue: Ed Sheeran is finally putting new music out, and he broke his silence on Twitter and Instagram to share the news with his fans.
Back in 2015, Sheeran quit social media, saying that he was stepping away from his phone, and that his third album was not only in the works, but “the best thing [he] has made thus far.”
His sole digital update in 2016 was that blue burst, and then, bam! The calendar flipped to 2017 and Sheeran gave us an update: New sounds are ready for the public, and he’ll be dropping the new tune (or tunes?) on Friday, January 6.
Flowers in the Dirt is the tenth release in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection. The multi-disc edition of the 1989 album will be released on March 24.
Flowers in the Dirt was the eighth solo album from McCartney and was seen as a return to quality after a number of less than stellar releases. Four of the tracks on the album were co-written with Elvis Costello (listed under his real name, Declan MacManus) who also sang with Paul on the track You Want Her, Too. Also appearing on the album was David Gilmour on the track We Got Married.
The album went to number 1 on the U.K. Albums chart, 18 in Australia and 21 in the U.S.
The original 13-track album was remastered at Abbey Road Studios. Added for the deluxe edition are 18 tracks across two discs with demos for the album. Paul said “The demos are red hot off the skillet and that’s why we wanted to include them on this boxed set. What’s great about these songs is that they’ve just been written. So there’s nothing more hot off the skillet as I say. So that was the kind of great instant thing about them. I hadn’t listened to them in ages but when I did I knew we had to put them out. We made a little tape of them and sent them to Elvis, who loved them too. We said we should put out an EP or something and now the moment’s finally arrived.”
