NEW FROM PHYSICAL PRESENTS: Bobby Love – “Stay” Ft. Ben Stevenson

Sometimes we get lost in our own club scene that we forget that new talent comes from other scenes as well.  Fresh out of the scene in Toronto we have the upcoming house artist Bobby Love and the latest from his backlog. Bobby Love has been quickly developing himself a rather rapid fan base, mainly praising his unique productions style and highly energetic live performances. He has even managed to catch some awesome buzz on the global circuit, with Armin Van Buuren’s label Armada Deep releasing his last single.  Bobby is only on the fast track to success and we hope we can see him along for the ride.

Alright, before we dive any further I want you to sit “Still” for a moment. Yes I know, that was lame, deal with it.  The latest release from this aspiring fresh talent, “Still” is yet another interesting track to come out of the experimental side of electronic music. Possibly created due to lack of sleep, Bobby Love figured he would dabble in a world where most artists/producers don’t dare to go…into the world of R&B. Not only is “Still” something new to add to the catalog of Bobby Love, but it’s sensual and groovy. Your ears and your body will pick up the groove almost immediately, we guarantee it.

Be sure you give “Still” a full listen below:

Nicky Romero’s Protocol Launches Five Year Anniversary Celebration

Hello everyone! I know we don’t normally post on Thursdays, but we have some special news just for you! Anyone who has read along with us for a while now knows that we highly support Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. They put out releases quite often and we try to support in the best way we can. But today is the day, five years ago, that Romero decided to create Protocol. In its mere five-year run (so far) Protocol has become a leader in the progressive house movement with creating amazing experiences at Miami Music and the Amsterdam Dance Event. So when is the best time to announce this celebration? Why during the 250th episode of Protocol Radio.

We all have grown to learn that Protocol sure knows how to throw a party, and they don’t hold back. While the initial launch premieres during Protocol Radio, Protocol is following up with a slew of new releases and events. Protocol Radio will feature some of the greatest hits that Protocol has released and will be following up with a “Best of Protocol” over the last five years on May 29th. This mix will be over five hours long, as there is plenty of hits to wade through in Protocol’s catalog of success. This is only the first to come from this celebration, as we will continue to provide coverage until their culmination at the Amsterdam Dance Event this year.

Make sure you keep yourself updated with Protocol’s socials!

Anime Club: Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I: The Egg of the King

BERSERK: THE GOLDEN AGE ARC I: THE EGG OF THE KING

DIRECTED BY: Toshiyuki Kubooka

GENRE: Action, Dark Fantasy

YEAR: 2012

COUNTRY: Japan

Guts, a mercenary, attracts the attention of the Band of the Hawk and is forced into joining the group after being defeated by its leader Griffith twice. Once the Hawks defeated the kingdom of Chuder’s Black Ram Iron Lance Calvary, they are recruited by Midland for its war against the rival kingdom. During one siege, Guts and Griffith encounter the demon Nosferatu Zodd, who notices the Behelit around Griffith’s neck and warns Guts that Griffith will be his doom.

I want to preface this that I have only seen very little of the movies and series in the Berserk franchise, so I am only a bit familiar with the background and lore of the franchise. By far one of the most popular anime franchises, The Golden Age Arc – The Egg of the King is the first film in the movie compilation that serves as a retelling of the Golden Age arc. The animation style is superb and definitely, serves as a standard for the technology at the time. Also, I would like to give a shout out to the voice cast, as their performances resonated with their characters rather well.

I have two major drawbacks and disappointments when it comes to The Egg of the King.  First off, while the art style was done really well, I didn’t feel that it resonated with the Berserk story as well as it could have. It definitely created a more stylized feel than the grittiness the Berserk is known for. Lastly, I didn’t enjoy the film as much as I could have because there is honestly very little action or anything going on. The Egg of the King is definitely no more than setting up for the rest of the Golden Age arc story.

PROS:

  • Appealing animation.
  • Main cast performance.

CONS:

  • The majority of the story is just setup.
  • Animation is too stylized.
  • Quite uninteresting if you know nothing about the Berserk franchise.

SCORE: 5.5 / 10
