Empire To Ashes - Single Review: My Own Phantom Limb

14 Jul 2017 // A review by Kerry Kingi
This song starts off with a scratchy eerie sound with a soothing modulated synthesized sound that gradually gets louder. The intro of the video reminds of Japanese horror movie 'The Ring' The visualisations change into random high quality images. There is atmospheric voices and sounds and a ambient digital bongo sound. At 1.40secs the drumbeat, bass line and synthesized keys drop making the song full, more atmospheric voices and sounds in the background.

"As always, everything I do is touched by the sweet hand of your memory"My Own Phantom Limb - the meaning behind this song runs deep. A high quality production released on June 5th 2017 on Bandcamp.

The video and music is brilliant and on point. They work exceptionally well together. The song reminds me of something from the 'Tron' soundtrack by Daft Punk. It is a well balanced arrangement of instruments and sounds. Very smooth and relaxing to listen too. Very creative energy put into this piece, similar concept to 'Boards of Canada' but more unique.

Chris the Maker Feat. Christopher Allen Haumaha - Single Review: Project001
17 Apr 2018 // by Kerry Kingi
This track has no intro, starting off hard, rough and with fuzzy feedback to your ears. It is a continuous loop that starts off quite rough, gradually changing slightly with new arrangements of sounds from time to time.

Festival Review: Bay Dreams 2018
21 Jan 2018 // by Kerry Kingi
Bay Dreams 2018 was the biggest one yet, from start to finish this was a great day out, great people, great services for drinks and food, rides and a brand new set up this year. The main stage was closer to the other stages so it made it quicker to get around all of the stages to see the artists.

V Energy and Audiology brings DnB legend and pioneer Roni Size touring his New Forms Anniversary Live show at The Studio in Auckland.
