Last Life
Expect some hypnotic, conscious-imbued acapellasl; funky, soul-filled and make-you-bop your head instrumentals, and a dash of mantric participation... Influenced by mo-town and the Divine penetration of our ego-culture and all the rants that arose from that, Last Life loves sharing his lyrical ramblings, which come from the heart. Currently working on his debut album 'The Great Search', he is filled with inspiration and appreciation for all those who open their ears, hearts and minds to his performance. At the moment, although concentrating a lot of energies on his album and collective EP with Modown and Reggie Kinsella, is seeking out collaboration to augment the frequency of creativity in his life as an artist. Come and check him out and enjoy that which he humbly wishes to share.

RadFax - A vibration of musical tones beats and colours entwined with mindful lyrical notions, refreshing for the ears the mind and the heart and the spirit.
Radfax is a primary vessel containing 'sympathetic' life forms. Through the time space continuum using a specialized transcoder known as "The Filter Flask" they have been searching for the missing Keys of Harmony. Through space, the mind state detected there was a planet that contained one of the keys to harmony. Slowing down to pick up the speed of sound they noticed a white noise covered the planet. On further inspection they found that the white noise made the key of harmony almost impossible to detect . The Friend-Ship has now made contact

Radfax are entering a new phase shift; expanding the wave tone frequencies within the framework of their mass. These modulations will be maintained with open mind vibration techniques along with the utilization of various updated, live inputs, feedback loops and manifestations. These creative interpretations will be relayed live through individual designs taken from unique source. Throughout we welcome all individuals and collectives to join us in this organic expansion of expression and exploration, experiencing the timely interventions of these new, previously unrevealed frequencies. These harmony frequencies will be uploaded live using the 'inspirational' throughout the framework and foundations and available through the Earth Language Vision Intensifying Satellite (E.L.V.I.S). For this purpose the incorporation of a Universal translator device commonly known to Earthlings as ?The Band? will be hosting. Let us know how your ears, psi and spirit are resonating with these harmonic wave frequencies throughout as we open up the sound valve to release the 'Radfax Frequency sessions'
