BEATFACE members Paul and Book started out wanting to be songwriters. Based in Toronto, they began crafting music for other artists but as time progressed a distinct sound emerged and they grew attached to their songs. Soon they decided to forego the songwriting route and keep their creations for themselves.
The BEATFACE sound can best be described as a mix of electronic, rock and pop music. Their influences run the gamut from Esthero and Dallas Green to Portishead and Deadmau5. They will be releasing their debut EP and touring later this year.
Earlier this year they held a listening session with a few local bloggers and have had some amazing response.
They have just released “A Bottle Of Wine” and would love to share it with you and your readers.

As if either of these songs could get bigger… Jason Smith worked his magic on yet another brilliant match made in mashup heaven. “Take Over Adele” amps up Adele’s classic vocals with the power of Afrojack’s production.

It was was 40 years from the time that this sound track was recored until Barack Obama’s election as president of the United States. Many voices have come and gone. Change happens with great effort over time, but dramatic events are part of metamorphisis.
I thought about this for several days and then put the mix together. Many people appreciate the connection between a successful and ongoing American freedom movement and the yearning for freedom in the Middle East. It seems to be especially meaningful to the some older folks.
