One World Beat News

WALES: Reptor Radio Goes Global for the Beat

Reptor Radio Productions --based in Abergele, Wales-- has once again stepped up to help us spread the word--in a spectacular way!--about One World Beat via global Internet airwaves. Not only are they featuring music by Reptor-related OWB 2004 participants, but they have also created a fantastic 2005 show as well, featuring Danny Hale, Chain Low, Eddie Avil, Colin Hartley, Drymbago, and many other artists, with music covering the gamut from rock to pop, college/indie to electronic, R&B/soul to punk, reggae to blues, hip-hop to New Age. See the OWB feature page on their website too:

Chain Low, described as "North Wales's finest ambient/electronika producers", has a unique sonic style which is ethereal, relaxing, and mind-bending, all at the same time. With a combination of hypnotic drums, distorted guitar riffs, tribal chants--all swirling in a "panoramic kaleidoscope of expanding perception"--their music is a multi-layered trip for mind, body, and soul. They have released one album, "The Angel and the Uzi".

Danny Hale--composed of music-technician/artist Danny Hale and singer David Williams--has a rock/punk sound also influenced by R&B and soul, and a new EP, "Soul Doubt", which makes clear that these young musicians are going places. Danny himself also engineers and produces for other local artists in North Wales, and works at the MASE Recording Studios in Old Colwyn, while David attends college.

Guitarist Colin Hartley was recently featured in a BBC article profiling his "off to the races" stint during Cheltenham Race Week, where he performed for the crowds and earned some extra income, as well as gaining notoreity for his music. Eddie Avil is with the rock band, Pralay --earlier known as Greek--a 4-member group with Eddie playing bass and singing vocals. Eddie's favorite music comes from the decade of the '80's, and his idols include Pink Floyd, Guns 'N' Roses, and Pearl Jam. The band was recently chosen by MTV-India and the Billboard Talent Network as one of four Indian bands to participate in the network. They have done a tour of Russia, as well as playing a number of Indian venues, and they have recorded original music.

Drymbago is an Afro-Beat band fronted by Gwilym Morus, who also has a solo career and has released an EP which will soon become an album (Rasal Records). Other artists include Fudged (College/Indie Rock), Jives (College/Indie Rock), The Psycho Sexual Sex Terrestrials (Pop), Risky_Tshirt (Electronic), Tyson (Electronic), Mick Lee (Pop), Bootnic (Punk), Gato Martin (Pop), Gernado (Reggae), Kevin Martin and the Hiwatts (Rock), Raw Dialect (Hip-Hop),Tyrone Houston (R&B/Soul), Nu Republic (Rock), The World Alternative (Rock), Suns of March (Alternative Rock), Carol Blaze (New Age), Radium 88 (Pop), Dan Politano (Rock), Ani Minasian (Pop), Sean Parker (New Age), Aderrick (Pop), Unknown Component (Pop), Markus Koller (Pop), Sibling Songs (Pop), Denarris (Easy Listening), The Pocket Gods (Blues), Jeff Laine (Blues), Richard J Falcon (Easy Listening), Tina Tank Top (DJ, Radio Presenter).

An upcoming article on our website will feature more about these artists, and also see the OWB 2004 Reptor Radio url, which has website listings and write-ups about all musicians featured. Greatest thanks to Reptor and all of these wonderful artists for making such a big difference through their music!
