De la Beat est né en 2023 de la réunion en studio pour le projet My Body, publié par Klubasic. Michael Gaeta est un DJ spécialisé dans la house music, qui a joué dans de nombreux clubs italiens. Jonas Bendaou est un pianiste acid jazz franco-italien qui a créé plusieurs morceaux pour d’autres auteurs. Il a décidé de se consacrer au projet De La Beat.
Le nom évoque justement la pulsation. Le sens du rythme. Le battement de cœur musical.
De La Beat: Un son au cœur de l’émotion
1 In Music: Si vous deviez résumer qui vous êtes et ce que vous faites, comment le feriez-vous ?
De La Beat [DLB]: Un organisme qui connaît les vibrations de la musique house et les sons mélancoliques du lo fi, le rythme de l’acid jazz et de la soul. Le projet De La Beat est né avec l’intention de produire des morceaux house avec une saveur lo fi et funky. En français et en anglais.
Qu’est-ce qui fait de votre musique un son unique ?
L’unicité, probablement, à l’époque où tout est uniforme et identique, réside dans les émotions.
Je me souviens encore d’il y a quelques années quand, un de mes morceaux fini, le directeur d’un label italien m’a demandé de faire bouger le groove comme dans le morceau de…, de jouer la basse comme dans le morceau de…., et de faire d’autres variations pour aligner le tout sur d’autres morceaux existants.
À ce moment-là, j’ai compris qu’il n’y avait pas de désir de nouveauté, mais qu’il fallait reproduire quelque chose qui avait déjà fonctionné.
En ce qui nous concerne, nous préférons suivre nos émotions. Le label Klubasic a probablement cru en cette vision lorsqu’il a décidé d’héberger l’un de nos titres parmi ses productions.
Comment De La Beat en est-il arrivé là ?
1 In Music : Qu’est-ce ou qui a façonné votre musique ?
DLB : Nous aimons Miguel Migs, Keytranada, Sabrina Claudio, Jill Scott, mais aussi des artistes comme Jamiroquai, Hocus Pocus (France), JKF (France), Incognito.
D’ailleurs, j’ai suivi Incognito dans plusieurs de leurs tournées.
1 In Music: Quelles sont les personnes qui vous soutiennent ?
DLB : Tout le monde et personne. Nous avons beaucoup d’amis qui croient en notre musique. Ils nous soutiennent de près ou de loin. Mais, avant tout, c’est nous qui croyons en ce nouveau projet.
1 In Music: Quand avez-vous réalisé que vous alliez faire de la musique professionnellement ?
DLB : Lorsque nous avons commencé à nous rendre compte de toute cette uniformisation musicale tout juste évoquée. Nous créions sans cesse de nouvelles choses et on nous disait que ce n’était pas conforme au marché.
Le besoin de créer le groupe De La Beat est venu naturellement, tout seul, dans la continuité logique de la dimension musicale qui nous lie incroyablement. Le titre My Body, publié par Klubasic, a peut-être été le point de départ.
Un petit peu plus près du cœur…
1 In Music: Quel type de musique écoutez-vous ?
DLB : Celui qui a inspiré notre nom De La Beat.
Le beat lofi – la deep house – le funky – hip hop, urban; mais aussi la musique électronique avec des sons mélancoliques. Quant à moi, dans ma vie, je passe de Debussy à Masego. De Tom Mish à Mozart.
1 In Music : Qui, pour vous, est l’artiste musical le plus sous-évalué ?
DLB : Il y en a beaucoup. Il suffit de parcourir rapidement youtube pour se rendre compte que de nombreux artistes ont un grand talent, mais qu’il est mal diffusé. Les labels créent souvent le besoin ou les lignes directrices. Mais nous sommes sûrs que les choses vont changer.
Essayez de chercher sur youtube Luuvis avec la chanson Up and away. Vous vous rendrez compte de la beauté musicale. Si j’étais un label, je le prendrais tout de suite et l’encouragerais à continuer sans s’arrêter.
1 In Music : Comment vous préparez-vous pour vos performances ?
DLB : Nous ne faisons pas de performances. Ou, du moins, pas pour le moment.
Si, par performance, vous entendez également jouer dans un studio d’enregistrement, je peux seulement vous dire que…
lorsque je m’assois au piano, c’est comme si je retrouvais l’amour. Mon cœur bat, je me prépare, je souris. Michael installe les instruments comme s’il peignait. C’est comme si on perdait la mémoire à chaque fois et qu’on recommençait à faire la cour à la musique.
La performance amoureuse dans le monde du beat. Je l’appellerais comme ça
1 In Music : Que faites-vous (de créatif ou autre) lorsque vous ne faites pas de musique et que dont vous êtes passionné ?
DLB : Michel travaille dans l’architecture et, pendant son temps libre, il étudie de nouveaux programmes, logiciels et outils. Je suis psychologue et j’adore mon travail de formateur auprès d’étudiants à l’école. Ensuite, je lis. Je voyage. Et pendant que je voyage, je lis et je pense à la musique. Je me considère chanceux.
1 In Music : Le succès pour vous, c’est…
DLB : Conscience. La conscience d’être amoureux de ce que l’on fait.
Le succès, ce n’est pas d’arriver quelque part. C’est aussi parce que dans la vie, on ne va jamais assez loin.
Les Grecs disaient : “Vivez maintenant et soyez conscients”.
Le succès réside dans la curiosité, la volonté, l’aptitude. Et surtout, dans le respect.
1 In Music : Qu’est-ce que vous auriez aimé qu’on vous dise quand vous avez commencé et qui, selon vous, aiderait un musicien débutant ?
DLB : Nous aurions aimé entendre des phrases comme “courage” ou “allez”, “essayons”. “On croit en vous”
En revanche, dans le domaine de l’art, il n’y a jamais de partage de nouveaux projets. Mais plutôt des “On vous tiendra au courant”.
Un musicien débutant a probablement besoin de quelqu’un qui le pousse à vivre ses passions sans rentrer à tout prix dans le moule.
1 In Music : Quels sont vos projets à venir ?
DLB : Outre My Body, publié par Klubasic, pour lequel nous avons également réalisé une version acoustique, et deux versions créées en collaboration avec les producteurs Guglielmo Bini, Cappiello et les fantastiques Jook et Spook, nous sommes en train de produire plusieurs titres. Beaucoup d’entre eux seront en français avec un rythme lofi house pour lequel nous avons prévu des collaborations avec d’autres DJs et producteurs.
Pour l’un d’entre eux, nous réalisons un clip fantastique qui sera dans la boîte d’ici cet été.
1 In Music : Merci d’avoir accepté cette interview avec nous, et d’avoir partagé autant sur votre groupe et votre son. Avant de vous quitter, où le public peut-il trouver votre musique ?
DLB : Nous venons de commencer. Le joli projet avec Klubasic, My Body, sera sur Spotify, Soundcloud, et Traxsource, et d’ici peu, également sur Tik Tok et YouTube.
Comme on dit, on regarde autour de nous et pendant ce temps, on vit l’instant présent, on suit le rythme, en continuant à tomber amoureux du rythme cardiaque musical.
Redemption Song is a song written and sung by legendary music artist Bob Marley. The piece is a powerful and moving anthem of hope and resilience. The song was written in 1979, during a time of great political and social unrest in Jamaica. Marley was diagnosed with cancer at the time, and he knew that he was dying. But even in the face of death, he found hope in his faith and in the strength of the human spirit. “Redemption Song” appears on Uprising, the twelth album by Bob Marley and the Wailers released on Island Records. Redemption is the final track on Uprising, an album that was produced by Chris Blackwell.
The anthem that is Redemption Song: Lyrics, melody and instrumentation
The song’s lyrics are simple but profound and powerful. Songwriter Bob Marley speaks of the need to overcome oppression and to find redemption through love and compassion. The song’s message is one of hope and possibility, even in the darkest of times. It is a message that is as relevant today as it was when it was written, and it continues to inspire people to fight for a better world. The melody and instrumentation that accompany and support those lyrics is a match made in heaven. The melody of “Redemption Song” is haunting and beautiful. It has the power to stay with you long after you have heard the song which is quite a feat considering how simple the instrumentation is. The instrumentation of “Redemption Song” is simple but effective. The song features a guitar and a voice, and that is all that is needed to create a powerful and moving experience. The overall impact of such a harmonious and minitious combination is a a powerful and moving anthem of hope and resilience.
Is Redemption Song a song about slavery?
There are indeed, in the song, some lyrics that reference physical slavery:
“Old pirates, yes, they rob I Sold I to the merchant ships Minutes after they took I From the bottomless pit”
“How long shall they kill our prophets While we stand aside and look?”
These lyrics remind us of the horrors of slavery and the ongoing struggle for freedom. However, the song also offers hope, as it calls on people to unite and fight for their liberation. But the song speaks most of all of the mental slavery as the one to fight most against.
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery – Free Your Mind
Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” is a song about freedom and liberation. It is a call to action for people to free themselves from mental slavery. Bob Marley defines mental slavery as the belief that one is inferior or not worthy of freedom.
A call to action: How long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look?
Bob Marley asks the question,
How long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look?
This question is a reference to the ongoing struggle for freedom and justice for all people. Marley is asking how long people will continue to stand by and allow oppression and injustice to continue. He is calling on people to stand up and fight for what is right, even if it means facing danger or hardship.
The phrase “kill our prophets” can be interpreted in a literal or figurative sense. In a literal sense, it can refer to the physical violence that has been inflicted on people who have spoken out for justice and freedom. In a figurative sense, it can refer to the ways in which people have been silenced or marginalized. Marley is asking how long people will continue to tolerate these injustices.
The question “How long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look?” is a powerful call to action. It is a reminder that we all have a responsibility to stand up for what is right, even if it is difficult. It is also a reminder that we must never give up hope, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
We are all connected
The song is also a reminder that we are all connected and that we must work together to create a better world. The song’s lyrics reference slavery, but they are not limited to that topic. Marley was a Rastafarian, and his faith played a major role in his life and work. The song’s message of redemption is universal, and it can be applied to any situation in which people are oppressed or held back.
“Redemption Song” is a powerful and moving song that has inspired people all over the world. It is a reminder that we all have the power to free ourselves from mental slavery and to create a better world.
“Redemption Song” is a powerful and timeless classic that has inspired generations of people around the world. It is a song that speaks to the human condition and to the universal desire for freedom and peace. The song’s message is as relevant today as it was when it was written, and it continues to inspire people to fight for a better world.It is a reminder that the deepest slavery is the mental slavery. It is a reminder that we all have the power to free ourselves from mental slavery and to create a better world. I highly recommend listening to “Redemption Song” if you have not heard it before. It is a song that will stay with you long after you have heard it. This inspiring anthem for freedom and justice reminds us that we all have the power to make a difference, and that we must never give up hope.
It’s extremely likely that when you hear a violin, orchestra, or piano, you immediately think of classical music. However, you may be listening to Yo-Yo Ma, who, despite playing old scores, is playing modern music.
To begin, we must understand what classicism is and the historical context in which it arose, so that you do not categorize orchestral music as classical in its whole, because different music periods exist and sound different if you pay attention.
With centuries of history to contemplate, it’s easy to get tangled up when it comes to the many eras of Western music. Here’s a rundown of the major music periods covered in music theory: Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, 20th Century, and beyond.
Renaissance music period
The Renaissance refers to the period after the Middle Ages. This is when the human mind begins to separate itself from the belief that everything is a result of the Abrahamic God’s providence. There is evidence of Gregorian chants, liturgies, and holy repertory without the signatures of their respective composers in ancient times because it was thought that this was done to exalt man rather than God, their heavenly inspirer.
However, after the birth of the Enlightenment movement, this would alter, and composers would be credited in their works as Masters and teachers, a tradition that lasted for several generations and spanned several music periods, resulting in the evolution of music.
Palestrina, Orlande de Lassus, and Tomás Luis de Victoria would be among the most prominent figures of this music period.
The Baroque period is known for its attention to detail, beauty, and extravagance. Music followed the trends of other artistic expressions such as painting and architecture, therefore it had to be outstanding, just like these amazing works of the time.
It was around this time that Johan Sebastian Bach, the renowned Master and Father of Music, was born, leaving not only a magnificent offspring but also a tremendous musical legacy that is still heard in academic music today.
His masterpiece “The well-tempered harpsichord” established the foundation for virtually all subsequent music. The names of the great Handel and Vivaldi stand out during this time as well: no fine meal or conference can be complete without the famous 4 seasons.
What is classicism?
Classicism offers a return to basic geometric shapes in architecture and to measure in the aural arts, rejecting the extravagance that gave rise to the baroque. We no longer find schemes with up to 60 overexposed melodies, but rather harmony, as well as musical forms like the orchestra, concerto, and the already popular opera.
It was also a watershed point in the history of German music. Well, it was at this time that the world’s first pop star, the Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was born, who starts his career at the age of nine.
German musical powerhouse
Because all of the music, as well as the lyrics in which it was sung, came from the Italian school, the German lieder began to form. These demonstrations, which were organized by artists at the time, were a clear expression of German nationalism. Germany rose to prominence as a musical powerhouse.
The Beethoven transition
Beethoven’s name debuts during the period of classicism; in fact, it is Beethoven who manages to transfer to the following phase of romanticism, when the piano would become the avant-garde instrument and a must for anybody wishing to compete in the major musical leagues.
Beethoven was a romanticism pioneer, producing musical forms such as the song and the ballad, does that seem familiar? We’re almost there!
Throughout romanticism, the Russians would eventually take over the avant-garde baton, but not before the Germans had laid down a well-defined pattern; during this time, the orchestra grows in size, power, and magnitude. Even noise is incorporated as part of the musical discourse at this point, as it tells us that we are in the midst of the great industrial revolution when thinking began to shift into a quite progressive one.
Other names of the romanticism music period
Strauss, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Wagner, and Lizst are among the names that will be remembered in Germany, while Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninoff, and Stravinsky, to mention a few, will be remembered in Russia.
We hope that this article has made the crude label of classical music obsolete in the minds of the general public. Classical music is associated with a specific epoch in history, as well as a geographical, historical, and social setting. You can find more of these guides on our 1 In Music guide section.

David Sosa is a NYC based singer/songwriter whose album, Journey to Love, debuted at #3 on Itunes top 100 R&B albums. Current singles are Laugh, Let Me Know, Ocean_Fire, Toxic, Carless, and currently About U with fellow artist, Jaspen. 1 In Music meets the music artist.
David Sosa: about the musician and the music
1 In Music: What is unique about you and your music?
David Sosa [DS]: My Music is always relatable and has a message of hope, self-discovery, self-love and healing. You will find that in the lyrics and in the general sound of any of my music.
1 In Music: What or who shaped your music and who supports you?
DS: My Parents and life shaped my music. I am supported by a wide variety of friends, community members, and music lovers alike. More importantly, The Divine. I am blessed and feel that essence in my life.
Becoming David Sosa, the singer-songwriter
1 In Music: When did you realise you were going to make music professionally?
DS: I knew from the age of 16 that I could write my own music and sing well enough to hit a stage consistently. I didn’t always, as fear and doubt made its way into my general being. However, I had all these words and melodies that needed to be heard and out in the open verses on my hard drive or phone voice memos. 1 In Music: What type of music do you listen to?
DS: I listen to everything from Jazz, to Opera, to Soul and R&B from the 1960s to the 2000s. I love music and I always look for the feelings it may give me despite the genre or artist.
A quick look at the music industry from David Sosa’s perspective
1 In Music: Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
DS: Most of us Unsigned indie artists. I have a friend, Ramona Montanez who is one of the most prolific writers and an amazing vocalist and the fact she aint on the radio or touring nationally boggles my mind. I know many other very talented artists that just don’t get the recognition they deserve because they dont have a Machine to back them up and push them out.
1 In Music: How do you prepare for your performances?
DS: I sleep and I hydrate. I laze about and drink so much water it’s ridiculous.
I also run my material nonstop since I am the worst at remembering lyrics, even my own.
David Sosa: On being spiritual
My Music… has a message of hope, self-discovery, self-love and healing.
1 In Music: You got us laughing there. We feel you. What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
David Sosa: When I don’t do music I am in the kitchen cooking up new or existing favorite recipes. Or I am engaging in philosophical and spiritual discussions on and off line and also providing spiritual advice to those who may need it.
1 In Music: Success to you is…?:
[Success to me is…] Expressing yourself fully and authentically in whatever field you operate in.
Art is too subjective and there are too many ways to express it, but success is in seeing your ideas into fruition. That is success!
1 In Music: What do you wish you were told when you started out and that you think would help anyone who starts out?
DS: How expensive being an indie artist can be. I’m about to start a Gofundme just for me. Patreon is cute but a lil help would be awesome, maybe even some government assistance and programs geared for supporting the arts.
What is next for David Sosa?
1 In Music: Any upcoming projects?
DS: I’ve been recording and working with various artists like Damian Julio Martinez, Jaspen, Abena Malika and so many more on this new eclectic project. So a lot of writing and recording. However, me and Jaspen just released About U. This song is a self-love declaration and I hope more people listen to the lyrics and magical groove.
1 In Music: Tell us more about About U
me and Jaspen just released About U. This song is a self-love declaration and I hope more people listen to the lyrics and magical groove.
DS: About U was a covo I had with the Artist , Jaspen. It’s about how we tend to love others and center our attention and affection on this other person often times, forgetting our needs for self-care. So this song really reflects on redirecting the love back at yourself and making sure to check in with your feelings and hold space for the love you desire for yourself and then a partner. Diggy Diamond and OB beatzz produced the track and me and Jaspen did the rest in writing and developing a melody. It was done mostly remotely between NY and Florida but it turned out great and we are excited for the world to hear it and let it soak in.
1 In Music: Nice. So, Where do we find that song and all your music?
DS: You can find my everything at www.davsos.com. It is constantly updated and has access to all my music, interviews and social media.
The Black Gasolines, the Theatrical Art-Rock band, treats the world on the first single of their upcoming album, entitled ‘Peculiar’! – Available now!
The Black Gasolines return
Straight from Belgium but ready to take over the world, the next generation of theatrical art rockers The Black Gasolines are working on their new album and are treating us to its first single, “Peculiar”. After the release of their debut album, “It Took A Lifetime” in late 2021, critics praised the band for its modern take on art rock and the wide range of arrangements. But this year, the band has been refining its sound ever since and proves it with their newest single.
Inspiration – On the shoulders of giants
Besides playing over 30 concerts this year in Belgium, France, Luxembourg, and Germany, the band wanted to focus on their new album.
We are delighted how the first album turned out, but we want to improve and challenge ourselves to be better and bolder,”
says the band. To do that, the band tries to learn as much as possible from their masters from previous generations.
Artists such as David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Meatloaf, and Queen are a real inspiration for us because of their unbounded approach to arrangements and flamboyant performances. We try to learn as much as possible from them and integrate it with our touch into our music and shows,
adds Bradley Remorie, bassist and singer of the band.
An in-house record
With a lot of inspiration, the band retrieved themselves in their home recording studio and started writing their follow-up record. While mixed by Sergey Steenackers and mastered by Laurens Grossen, the band likes to record everything in-house.
We invested everything we got in recording equipment so we wouldn’t have to rent a recording studio whenever we had an idea. It gives us the ability to experiment without worrying about budgets and time constraints,
says Lukas Debeerst, guitarist and recording engineer. And after many writing and recording sessions, the first single of a second album is here.
Peculiar, The first single of the upcoming album by The Black Gasolines is here !
Peculiar starts with a mysterious countdown and dissolves in a build-up of dissonant instruments, making the listener cluster to their headphones from the first second while wondering what will happen. Once entering the verse, the song dissolves into a rhythmic song you can’t stop tapping your foot to. The band takes you on a journey from inspiring lyrics to melancholic melodies. They make you feel like you are floating through reality while giving you an irresistible urge to dance. With many choir layers, you get the impression that you are not alone in the story.
The Black Gasolines are not afraid to explore other boundaries and give you a touch of soul and blues while still exploring progressive art rock. We’ll have to wait until next year to hear the album, but their new release, “Peculiar” gives us a taste of what is coming.
