SteemClub-UK : weekly curation for music @ 18 November 2018

As mentioned in my post Steem UK : 10 Things Going On with Steem in the UK @ 15 November 2018 I am keen to try out some weekly curation posts to promote content creators in the UK.

First up I am going to start with music.

My recent music hunt found 16 active steem musicians in the UK. The list is repeated below for reference – if you know any more not on the list please let me know.

Some of the 16 musicians are more active than others, but there is still plenty of good UK steem music to chose from.

I will keep this curation simple to start. I have listened to every track UK steem musicians have put out via Steemit and DSound in the past week and I have chosen five that take my fancy.

These reflect my musical preferences as much as quality of the music, but it is a start…


Holding On – by Broken Ocean – @davidfar & @darrenclaxton

This steem pairing of @davidfar in Iran and @darrenclaxton in England as Broken Ocean is producing magical tracks that are making waves on the steem music scene.

Happy by Conflux @nakedverse & Alison

Kent based Deggsy @nakedverse together with the lyrics and vocals by Alison regularly make some lovely music as Conflux.

York – On The Beach by @nickyhavey featuring TigerPaw

Trance Drum and Bass is not my usual place in the musical space but this track got me mooovin…

Train from Marylebone by @skaarl

This is a funky little track and it features train announcement samples. How could a former trainspotter resist this one…

Little Blue Flame by @theturtleproject

The Turtle Project is from my neck of the woods in west Wales. I always love the vibe of his music. It just chills.

They are my five picks for the week, but I will throw  in a couple more UK musical wildcards that well worth a read and an upvote…

Let’s sing! by @donatello

Just make a post with Let’s Sing in the title and you can get 100 Donatello Club digital cards…

Nick Harper Interview by @acousticguitar aka @camuel

Very interesting interview with Nick Harper. He is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist, son of folk musician Roy Harper and past member of the English New Wave band Squeeze.

UK Steem : UK musicians on Steem, DSound & DTube

As part of promoting Steem in the UK an idea has been mooted of having some sort of Steem musicians event.

I wondered therefore how many UK based musicians there are on the Steem blockchain.

My Life in 8 Songs – Thursday 14 June – with @darrenclaxton, @d-vine & @zipporah

https://pennsif.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/my-life-in-8-songs-454×278.jpg
This week’s My Life in 8 Songs has a little twist.
All three guests are musicians who write their own songs. So instead of 8 songs from the big wide musical world they are choosing 8 of their own songs.
The twist doesn’t end there. Instead of telling their whole life story each guest will be taking us through their musical journey from first discovery through learning their skills, developing their talent, growing their following to their current situation.
Darren Claxton @darrenclaxton from the UK is in the acoustic indie folk vein, D-Vine / ELLi @d-vine from Germany is more electronic and dance, and Zippy Lomax @zipporah from USA spans acoustic and electronic genres.

The shows airs from 8pm – 11pm UTC on Thursday on MSP Waves Radio.



@darrenclaxton

https://pennsif.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/darrenclaxton-250×250.jpg

Darren Claxton joined steem in March this year.

He is from Derbyshire in the UK.

Darren Claxton is a songwriter, musician and producer of his own music. The music he writes is often heartfelt acoustic indie folk with a sprinkling of rock and country influences, with an occasional world music flavour as heard on his track ‘Dragonfly’.

Most of all, it is his passive emotive thoughts and feelings that are delivered through that soothing vocal, and intricate guitar playing of his.


@d-vine

https://pennsif.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/d-vine-250×250.jpg

ELLi @d-vine is a female audio engineer, producer and DJ, currently located in Germany.

Since arriving on steem last November ELLi has been actively involved in many areas of the steem music scene including the Steem Music Alliance and the Steemit Music League Challenge. She has also regularly put out new tracks on DSound.

ELLi started in the underground electronic scene in Europe in 1993. She made her professional debut in Germany in 1998, and her first release on the label Risk Industrees in 1999. In 2015 she began to focus more on production and in 2017 got her certification as an audio engineer.


@zipporah

https://pennsif.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/zipporah-250×250.jpg

Zippy joined the steem platform in January.

She is based in Portland, Oregon in the USA.

As well being a musician and songstress, Zippy is a photographer, writer and illustrator. In her steemit profile she describes herself as “seeing with heart – listening with eyes – founder of The Kindness Collective”.



I have already got some really interesting steemians lined up for forthcoming shows. But I am still looking for more guests.

If you would like to come on the show with your life story and your 8 special songs please comment below or find me on Discord @Pennsif#9921.


The ‘My Life in 8 Songs’ show airs on MSP Waves Radio on Thursdays from 8pm to 11pm UTC.

If you need to convert UTC time to your local time visit World Time Buddy

You can listen to the show via the PAL Discord server, via mspwaves.com  on Twitch at twitch.tv/mspwaves
