DJ/Multi-Genre Bending Artist JHNN Releases “Machine Funk” EP

Following the release of his single and video, "My Strange Addiction,"  Canadian DJ/multi-genre artist JHNN unveils his new EP, Machine Funk. For fans of: NINE INCH NAILS, BOY HARSHER & DANIEL AVERY. Machine Funk contains six tracks and is available on digital format. "I wanted to make something darker and not "four on the floor." From random trips on the train to different moments throughout the day, recalling rhythms and lyrics from a long time to a little while ago. Why are people so polarizing?  Why are there there so many sides to me?  These are some of the thoughts that inspired Machine Funk.  At the end of the day, I just wanted to make something that blended elements from tribal, metal, industrial and even new wave." Fans can find JHNN at the following locations: https:...

Ilan Rubin(NINE INCH NAILS, ANGELS & AIRWAVES) Discusses His Band THE NEW REGIME, Drumming Techniques & Mental Health Awareness with Madness To Creation

Editor's Note:  It was quite an interesting conversation with Ilan Rubin for Madness To Creation.  Ilan's drumming skills became a worldwide sensation as he drummed for a band called F.o.N. as an 11 year old at Woodstock 1999.  He's gone on to play in other bands such as Fenix Tx, Lostprophets, Denver Harbor, and Paramore.  He currently drums, plays piano and does some guitar work for Nine Inch Nails, in which they have personally called him "the secret weapon of Nine Inch Nails", and he drums for Angels & Airwaves, and is the mastermind behind an incredible band known as The New Regime.  The New Regime have released "Heart Mind Body & Soul" this year, and played some shows with Silversun Pickups.  Covid-19 would be the cause of the Silversun Pickups' tour to be cancelled and Ilan ...

(Double Album Review) “Ghosts V-VI” by NINE INCH NAILS

Weird Times Indeed... It may be best to begin with the three words Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have addressed to us, the friends of Nine Inch Nails, on their website which also kindly links us to free downloads of their latest ambient releases: Ghosts V: Together and Ghosts VI: Locusts. It has been twelve years since the release of Ghosts I-IV, the 6th NIN LP composed of 36 mostly ambient tracks and described by Trent as, “a soundtrack for daydreams.” At the time it was compared to the works of Brian Eno and was also a great musical tool to revise and procrastinate to for my exams. This LP foreshadowed the tonal soundscapes Trent and Atticus would lend in a partnership with David Fincher and a multitude of other film and television soundtracks; winning them an Oscar and Golden Globe f...

JIM DAVIES (THE PRODIGY, PITCHSHIFTER) Converses with Mark Dean on “Headwars” and his Illustrious Career”

Contributor's Note:  Throughout its rich history, there are many musicians who can lay claim to having influenced rock music, each of them adding their own unique sound to the genre, each of them endlessly imitated. One name that you probably won't find on any list, however, is Jim Davies. And you probably should. Among the many classic songs he's contributed to are The Prodigy's 'Firestarter' and 'Breathe', both international hits that reached Number One in numerous countries, along with co-writing several albums with cult UK crossover band Pitchshifter, and collaborating with many other electronic rock acts and DJ’s. While he'd be embarrassed by such accolades, perhaps it's time we'd updated those lists. Jim Davies may just be the best known guitarist you've never heard of. Entitled '...
