beatvyne Sounds of December

December 9, 2017 by Kenn in beatvyne
As it’s December and a little chilly out there, this month’s ‘Sounds of’ will feature all things airy, ambient and of course a little Xmasy!

beatvyne Sounds of October

October 25, 2017 by Kenn in Music Scene
We’re back, and this time with some sounds we feel are perfect for the autumnal winds and eerie vibes of Halloween! From the creepy, pulsating and demonic beats of ‘Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool’ from Editors (make sure to check out the video), to the gothic undertones of our very own Lōwli, this is one playlist guaranteed to bring some chills to your Samhain fest!

beatvyne’s Live Recording Sessions at Sun Studios

October 3, 2017 by Kenn in Artist Opportunities
Tom Waits once said, “Songs really are like a form of time travel because they really have moved forward in a bubble. Everyone who’s connected with it, the studio’s gone, the musicians are gone, and the only thing that’s left is this recording which was only about a three-minute period maybe 70 years ago” We wanted to bring the audience into this “bubble” and share the magic of the recording process, to give the music lover a taste of what it’s like for the artist to put their music on record, store it in a time capsule, to be found later and reconnected with years from now.

The Slow Death Of Conventional Music Venues and the Rise of the Micro Venue!

August 8, 2017 by Kenn in Music Industry
This fascinating and slightly worrying article in the Guardian remarks on the ‘slow death of music venues in cities’ across the UK. At first glance you would think it’s the end of the road for the music industry. A deeper look reveals an industry in radical change.

Artist Blog | Having the Right Setting for Your Music: Playing in Unique Venues

March 31, 2017 by Stevie Cliff in Music Industry
Despite the advent of massive technological changes in the last 20 years – for me playing live remains the best way for an artist to connect with an audience. Recently I took a spin down to Abner Browns in Rathmines to catch some live performances from The Young Folk and John Cummins. Abner Browns is a barbershop and a completely unique environment to experience live music. I recommend anyone reading this to check a gig out there asap.

For What It’s Worth – The Trump Effect!

January 19, 2017 by Kenn in Music Scene
Over the weekend, while the world got ready for Donald Trump to take the hot seat, we and all those that went to the Ones To Watch music festival in Dublin’s iconic venue, Whelan’s, were treated with a trump card of what Ireland has up its sleeve, musically!

16 artists we couldn’t stop listening to in 2016

December 31, 2016 by Kenn in Music Scene
It’s that time again when you sit back, think of the year gone by and look ahead to the one to come. It’s been a slightly mixed one from a musical point of view. From the tragic losses of David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Prince and, most recently, George Michael, to name but a few, 2016 will go down as the year that took so many great icons from us.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain!

September 7, 2016 by Kenn in Music Scene
Bob Marley once sang “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain!” Well, last weekend the 50,000 music fans who invaded the quiet village of Stradbally would most likely attest to this lyric.
