ULTRA BEAM RECORDS – ESSKELL – ANGEL

Singer/song writer Esskell once again brings his signature brand of music to the people. He continues to create waves locally and internationally, showcasing his inspirational musical talents that have disc jocks,Selectors and fans anxiously waiting for more.

Esskell’s new radical song is called “ANGEL”. The real life lyrics of this song talks about a man who chooses to take to the streets doing the wrong things to survive because he feels he lives in a hopeless society. The negative influences in the environment that he grew up in, scars his mind and influences the choices made for a better life for him and his family. The conscious mind will always prevail, as through his struggles he still hopes for a better tomorrow, guidance and protection, so he cries out “ Father God send an angel to watch over me”.

This song will touch the hearts and minds of many, as we all hope for better opportunities and better choices, with the help of Father God.

“ANGEL”, produced by Paul Christie of Ultra Beam Records is available across all digital platforms.

The venue has been dismantled after running into financial difficulties, though there are plans for it reopen under a new name in 2019.

Popular Paris boat club Batofar has closed for good.
Moored in the 13th arrondissement since 1999, the red tugboat ran into financial troubles earlier this year, according to daily newspaper Libération. It was initially due to shut for renovations, though they never materialised. A 17-hour closing party, scheduled for February 3rd, also never happened. More recent photos show the red boat being dismantled. (See right.)
Libération also reports that the venue will reopen in summer 2019 as a salsa club under a different name, Faro Faro.
For almost 20 years, Batofar was a vital and trusted spot for underground house and techno fans. Recent guests include Tin Man, Xosar and Djrum.

David Morales arrested in Japanese airport on ‘suspicion of smuggling’ MDMA

The US DJ was reportedly detained in Fukuoka on Saturday afternoon after customs officials found 0.3g in his possession.

David Morales was reportedly arrested in Japan over the weekend on “suspicion of smuggling” 0.3g of MDMA.

According to national newspaper Asahi Shimbun, the Grammy Award-winning artist was travelling from Hong Kong to Fukuoka on Saturday afternoon when customs officials found a small bag containing the class A drug in his carry-on luggage. Morales denied it was his, claiming that someone else put it there. “He was arrested for allegedly violating the law on narcotics and psychotropics control,” a police spokesman told news agency AFP.
Japan has a zero-tolerance policy on drugs. The penalty for possession of class A substances for personal use, however small the amount, carries a maximum prison sentence of seven years and a fine of ¥3 million (£19,821).
Morales was due to perform at Fukuoka club Bijou on October 6th, followed by an appearance in Tokyo the following day. On Saturday evening, the promoter of the Fukuoka show posted on Instagram saying that Morales wouldn’t be attending because he was “sick.”
Resident Advisor reached out to Morales’s team, who said they’re “unable to comment at this time, but will share further information with you as and when we’re able to do so.”

We’ll bring you more on this story as we have it.
