Ryan Weber starting his own solo project “REW<<” is best known for beeing part of Eric & Magill, where he wrote some pieces, e.g. ‘All those I know’. Born in Wisconsin, US, he grew up and started playing some music with friends there. He’s a part armenian and was traveling around the world for some years, getting influenced by different music styles as Lingala and Tarab music from Kenya. While he wrote REW<< , he was traveling back to the United States after living in Kenya for two years. He describes this record as his emotions he felt while traveling and ending a chapter in his life. Ryan Weber wrote and recorded in hotel rooms in Kenya, India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia. He describes this in this way: ‘I think rather than being influenced by genre, I’m influenced by my surrounding, music is a component of surrounding, but not the whole, as am I, thus I try to channel what I’m feeling in that setting.’ Listen to “Departeueres“, an amazing collection of records, fitting perfectly here. Thanks Ryan Weber for these amazing sounds!
“While listening to Ryan Weber’s album “Departeueres” you could really chill down and enjoy these amazing soft dream pop melodies”

Yao Bobby is a west african rap and hip-hop musician, who released his first solo album ‘Histoires d’un continent’ in 2012. Before this he was the former of the first rap crew in Togo, Djanta Kann. His new album is an awesome mix of world, traditional western african instruments accompanied by his great voice. All in all it’s great traditional mixed with some rap. My favourite song is “Memoire d’un continent”:
“For all lovers of African Music, Yao Bobby is a must listen. His spoken words, rap and traditional sounds are still amazing. Try the journey!”
