    Setting it off

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 14/07/2019

    » From its humble start lurking in the shadows of J-pop to partially dominating the globe, the unstoppable power of K-pop has been fascinating to witness. Today, in the hazy wake of the Gangnam Style craze, the genre has grown to have its own annual convention, KCON, which is aimed to celebrate South Korean culture at various locations around the world. In North America, K-pop boy bands and girl bands are being received with open arms. Groups like seven-member boyband BTS have even gone so far as to win 2017's Billboard Music Award for Top Social Artist, beating pop royalty like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande.

    From Belize with love

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 26/05/2019

    » Ariel Zetina may be best known as one of Chicago's fiercest DJs (the Mother of the Windy City Club Scene, as some have suitably appointed her), but she's more than meets the eye. Having come from a theatre and poetry background, the American-Belizean artist is well-versed in cutting-edge performance art. In fact, her first foray into music-making was born out of necessity, simply because she couldn't find a piece of music that would fit a show she was working on as part of collaborative performance art group Witch Hazel. After relocating to Chicago some years later, she finally found her place and essentially herself in the city's thriving queer/trans club scene, which provided her with the impetus to fuse house and techno sounds with her own multicultural flavours.

    Top 20 singles of 2017

    B Magazine, Published on 31/12/2017

    » Congratulations! You've made it to through 2017, a rather challenging year characterised by a series of unfortunate events from the rise of Alt-Right and the Weinstein effect to devastating hurricanes and starving polar bears. We've also lost a handful of musicians along the way -- Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington and Tom Petty, to name but a few. Thankfully, those who are still alive and kicking have served up some of the most memorable tunes we've had the pleasure of hearing this year. Handpicked from our Playlists over the last 12 months, here are the top 20 singles that have soundtracked and defined the year that was. This week we're picking up where we left off last week with the remaining tracks. And before we close up the shop, let's once again pat ourselves on the back, for 2017 was no child's play by any standards. May you have strength and courage to wade through Trump's tweets and Prayut's tantrums in the coming year.
