Ermal Meta & Fabrizio Moro, winners of Sanremo 2018


"Questa è la mia vita che va avanti, oltre tutto, oltre la gente"
Last Saturday took place the final of the Sanremo Music Festival. The winners of this 68th edition of the festival have been the fantastic duo composed by the italian- albanian singer and songwriter Ermal Meta and the Italian singer and songwriter Fabrizio Moro, with the song "Non mi avete fatto niente". A song with a strong very touching meaning for many of us, a song with a message of peace.

"Non mi avete fatto niente" is one of those song that arrives straight to your heart. On the 6th of february, right after their first exibition on the Ariston stage, the video of the song was released, the very touching images, mixed with the song gives you goosebumbs ; in just a few days the video got over 3 millions views. In our opinion the victory has been well deserved and we can't wait to see them performing in Lisbon, when they will represent Italy during the Eurovision contest.

The song is avaliable in every digital store and on Ermal's new album "Non abbiamo armi" and on Fabrizio's one "Parole Rumori Anni" as well.

Switch Off Babylon - The new video from Patois Brother

"The constant use of so many screens in our homes cause us to conform to Babylon’s norms and lose sight of what is really important, or simply leads us on the wrong path."

Last week Patois Brother, the italian reggae band from Venice (Italy), made our tuesday nicer with the realase of their new video, for the song Switch Off Babylon.
We got to hear Patois Brother for the first time last august in Rototom Sunsplash, and has been love at first sight, their music and lyrics are amazing and it really and it really fascintes you in a way that not every musician is able to.
Switch off Babylon, is taken from the band latest album "Wise and Wild" that was relased last year, an album that not only contains great music with very meaningful lyrics but also a wonderful collaboration in the tune "Life Learning" with the Jamaican reggae legend Max Romeo.

The song and the album are both avaliable on every digital platform, and the link to the video is right here below.

Acid Reign : an interview with Ben Wray

 Here we are with the first interview of this new year ! 
We will be talking with Ben Wray, writer,producer and director, about the Acid Reign Series and the short movie Enter the Fringe. We saw Enter the Fringe and we highly recomend it to all dystopian and post-apocalyptic fans and to all those who want to experience something new ! After watching the short movie we got all hooked and we look forward to all the exciting news Ben told us in the interview, 
so keep reading !

 Hello Ben, would you like to introduce yourself for our readers ?

 I guess, more important than any boring detail I could give you about myself is that I love films and filmmaking! For me, taking an idea and being able to translate that idea into an artwork that other people can enjoy is my passion. I have always been a fan of the sci-fi and dystopian/post-apocalyptic genres because there is just something about fiction or fantasy that is so close to our own lives that I think everyone can really connect with.  I grew up in a simple town in Arkansas where nothing ever that exciting happens so I think that's where all the creativity started. I am currently a writer, producer, and director for two production companies here in Utah. 
 Let's talk about Acid Reign series.
 A couple of years ago, my friend and Co-creator called me and said he had an idea for a movie and he wanted to meet. When we got together the next day, he handed me some notes and basically said he wanted to make a post-apocalyptic movie with a guy, a girl, and a muscle car. Easy enough right? After about 6 months of meetings and concepts, I had a feature film written. It was good, but there was one problem; It was way too big of a story to be told in a feature and even a sequel. 6 months later I had written the first season. The feature that I had written ended up working its way into the season finale. Without going into too much detail, the story of Acid Reign takes place about a hundred years after an apocalypse that destroyed most of the earth, leaving almost all of it uninhabitable with exception of a city somewhere in the northwest United States. I know this sounds like the cookie cutter beginning of almost all of the other post-apocalyptic works out there, but Acid Reign is quite different. How it happened is unknown to the survivors. The fallout from whatever destroyed it isn't nuclear fallout, and the city is literally untouched, but why? You'll either have to read the books or wait for the series to find out more. I know, I hate me too.
Where you draw your inspiration from ?

 I grew up reading Stephen King, David Gemmel, Steven Erickson, Tolkien, Ray Bradbury, oh so many. Watched hundreds of movies. Although I studied Kubrick, Speilberg, Tarantino, James Cameron, Ridley Scott and J.J. Abrams, I have to admit there are pieces from all of them, but mostly I think Bill Dubuque, Ian C. Esslemont, and James Mangold. Mainly for the simple human aspect forcing its way through an enormous world. I truly hope that wasn't as confusing as it sounds.

Do you want to tell us something about the short film "Enter the Fringe" ?

  Enter the Fringe? We had been developing the world of Acid Reign, doing test shoots, and working out the design for the show for about two years and we were just ready for something to be filmed. We are friends with Josh Larson, who runs a local film festival. He called up Nathan and said he had one spot left in his film competition and asked if we would just do something Acid Reign. I had a script the next day, we met that next week for production, got our crew and talent together and filmed everything in one day. We had 10 days to plan, film, edit, and score the show. Luckily we have amazing people we work with. I decided to make "Enter the Fringe" an introductory film to the series, more of a "proof of concept". It gives a limited glimpse into the world of Acid Reign, but just enough. It was a lot of fun
"Enter the Fringe" was at the Red Giant Festival 2017. What about that experience ?

We were really excited to showcase what we had done in just over a week at the premiere night for the Red Giant Festival. Seeing your work on a screen in front of people is something that is hard to explain if you haven't experienced it. Surreal, exciting, nervous, and proud all wrapped up in one. Out of 16 films that were entered and 15 possible awards, we were nominated by the judges for 12 of 15. We were all ecstatic. That really is the payoff of hours and hours of work. It is fantastic to be nominated for a single award, but 12? The award ceremony was a week later. I can't tell you how anxious we all were. We ended up winning 5 of the 12. Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Wardrobe and Makeup, and the one I personally am most grateful for, the Audience Choice award. That's what truly matters to me; giving something to the audience that they love.   

Where does our readers can purchase "Enter the Fringe" ?

You can watch our introductory short film for Free on Amazon. Just search "Enter the Fringe" or you can view it for a small fee at    

What about the future of this project ? Is there a full lenght film coming ?

Book One, "Acid Reign: Genesis" will be available in the next couple of weeks as an ebook or print through Amazon and a couple of other sources. The first book covers roughly the first 5 episodes of the first season. We have video games, alternate reality apps, and graphic novels in the works as well.  
The first season will be 9 episodes. 30 - 45 minutes each episode, with a full-length film as the finale. I am currently meeting with investors to get the funding to make this happen. We will begin shooting early this year.
Thank you so much Kenaz! I can't wait to share the world of Acid Reign with you!  
And many many thanks to YOU Ben for taking your time to answer our questions ! We can't wait to read and watch more of Acid Reign !

Interview with Muiravale Freetown

Hello dear listeners and readears,
here we are with a new and fantastic interview.
Today's interview is with the amazing Muiravale Freetown band, a reggae band from Italy.  A huge thanks to RedGoldGreen label for the oppurtunity to "meet" and discover more about these amazing guys. Enjoy the interview ! :)

Ti/vi andrebbe di presentarvi ai nostri ascoltatori ?
Would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners ?

Blessed Love family, un piacere per noi partecipare alla vostra trasmissione, noi siamo i Muiravale Freetown e veniamo dal centro Italia.
Blessed love family, it's a pleasure for us to be on your website, we are the Muiravale Freetown, and we are from center Italy

Quando è iniziata la vostra avventura musicale ?
When did you music adventure started ?

La band ha iniziato a prendere forma nel 2009, quando 3 ragazzi decidono di scrivere una canzone in memoria di Alfredo Fiorini, medico missionario e nostro concittadino ucciso in un agguato in Mozambico. L'emotività di quel momento non solo ha fatto si che nascesse una canzone in suo onore, ma ha messo in moto qualcosa di più ampio. Da lì a preso il via un percorso che ancora oggi è in evoluzione. Dopo un EP di 5 brani è arrivato il primo album MUIRAVALE FREETOWN prodotto da Paolo Baldini nel 2013. Siamo cresciuti dal vivo al fianco di artisti italiani di assoluto livello ma anche di nomi internazionali aprendo concerti per Damian Marley, Bunny Wailer e Soja e nel 2015 ci siamo esibiti al Rototom Sunsplash a Benicassim, in Spagna.
The band was formed in 2009, when 3 guys decided to write a song in memory of Alfredo Fiorini, a missionary doctor from our town, that was killed in a ambush in Monzambique. Those strong feelings birthed not only a song but a much wider project. That's when our jouney started and it is still evolving today. After an EP of 5tunes, the first album "Muiravale Freetown" came, and was produced by Paolo Baldini in 2013. We grew up live beside great italian artists, but also with international names such as Damian Marley, Bunny Wailer and Soja and in 2015 we've been to Rototom Sunsplash in Benicassim.

Quale messaggio possiamo trovare nelle vostre canzoni ?
Which message can we find in your songs ?

Oltre il cammino spirituale verso la Cultura Rasta, il nostro messaggio e quindi Missione principale, si può riconoscere già nel nome "Muiravale" che è quella piccola località in Mozambico dove il 24 agosto del '92 venne ucciso Alfredo Fiorini. Da quel momento Muiravale ha assunto per noi un significato molto importante, la chiave dei nostri valori che sono quelli che erano di Alfredo. Siamo nati per onorare la sua memoria dopotutto.
Beside the spiritual path towards the Rasta Culture, our message and so our main mission, can been already seen in our name "Muiravale" that is the town in Monzambique where on the 24th of august 1992 Aldo Fiorini was killed. Since Muiravale has a very important meaning, the key of our values where the same as Alfredo's. We were actually born to honor his memory after all.

Come avete conosciuto i ragazzi della fantastica Redgoldgreen ?
How did you meet the guys from the great RedGoldGreen ?

Fortunatamente uscendo dalle piccole realtà che ci circondano (viviamo in un paese di provincia), si riescono a trovare grandi persone con le quali condividere bei momenti insieme. I ragazzi di RedGoldGreen sono tra queste persone. Ci siamo conosciuti a Roma nelle serate reggae della capitale, andando ai concerti e alle serate con i soundsystem. Il rapporto di amicizia si è poi trasformato anche in un legame professionale quando hanno voluto inserire un nostro brano (Dem Go Mad) all'interno del secondo volume della compilation Push The Vibes. Ne siamo stati onorati. Per questo ringraziamo ed auguriamo alla famiglia RedGoldGreen un fortissimo Large Up per il loro cammino. Life is the Mission. Bless and love.
As small town boys, we consider ourselves lucky to have found amazing people we can share great moments with. The guys from RedGoldGreen are among these people. We met them in Rome in one of the many reggae events and soundsystem nights . Our friendship became a professional collaboration when they wanted to add our tune Dem Go Mad in the compilation "Push the vibes". We feel so honored by this. So we give thanks and wish the family of RedGoldGreen a big Large Up for their future. Life's the mission. Bless and
