God Is 7 is the name under which Hull, UK music producer Dom Sith continues to release his minimal electronic beats. Today, to help move and groove you through your week, GI7 returns with his latest single, “Dyst0pia.” A top option for your soundtrack to social distancing, this song begs to be cranked up.
Commenting on the new cut, Sith notes, “Seriously, what else was I gonna do with my time? I wanted to come out with something, to soundtrack how I was feeling in this current time, and hopefully some other people can get into it too. It’s the soundtrack to society as it stands today. For better or worse.”
To staying creative, and entertain during lockdown, Soundsphere’s Dom Smith and Inkblot Films’ Jay Sillence have launched a YouTube channel (dubbed The Culture Sphere) to discuss fantasy battles, including John Wick versus Wolverine, and Chucky versus Gizmo.
Yorkshire post-punk duo, Mary and the Ram have today premiered a remix of their debut single, ‘The Cross’ by London alternative rock band, Birthmarks. The track moves the original away from its gothic Sisters of Mercy-esque roots and takes it in a more ambient Massive Attack-inspired trip-hoppy direction.
MATR are currently working on new material at home in York following the success of their debut material (produced by John Fryer [Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails]). Birthmarks will release their debut album, ‘And Then The Rain Stopped’ later this year.
Soundsphere magazine today releases a short documentary produced by two Hull College students – athlete, journalist and wheelchair user, Chelsea Sparke and producer Danielle Hayes. The documentary features prominent figures in Hull’s music scene talking about Hull’s quest for better accessibility.
Dom Smith, editor of Soundsphere (who has Cerebral Palsy) comments: “Hull is where I am from, and I wouldn’t be doing anything music related if it weren’t for the supportive nature of Hull’s people, and venues, but there’s still work to be done and this short documentary shows that and also sheds a light on the incredible stuff going on in our city, and scene.”
