News : THE STRIDES HIT THE ROAD THIS SUMMER AND RECLAIM AUSTRALIA

efpublicity writes"“A serious challenger to the Cat Empire and Company” – THE AUSTRALIAN
Sydney’s Reggae, Afrobeat and hip hop extraordinaires, The Strides have taken giant steps forward in the past twelve months. In early 2011, their sophomore album ‘Reclamation’ was released to glowing reviews, as well as scoring them a well deserved ABC Radio National ‘Album of the Week’.  Taking strides to reclaim Australia this November, the eight-piece will embark on ‘The Strides National Reclamation Tour’ bringing their signature melting pot of sounds to a venue near you.

Stepping back to 2009, The Strides made their mark with their self-titled debut album, accompanied by a string of non-stop touring.  Since then the octet have taken their unique blend of Roots Reggae, Dub, Dance hall and Nigerian inspired Afrobeat to the Bellingen Global Carnival, Darling Harbour Jazz & Blues Festival, Reggae Fest Ballina, Coloundra Music Fest and Peats Ridge Festival.  The Strides have also supported the likes of Nigerian Afrobeat heavy weight Tony Allen and Californian Reggae stars Groundation.
 
Fronted by Reggae master Ras Roni, from Barbados via London, and Fijian MC Ltl GZEUS (Little Jesus), ‘Reclamation’ faithfully channels the sounds of Bob and Damian Marley, Fela Kuti, Tony Allen, Barrington Levy and The Skatalites, whilst still forging a unique sound that defies genre.

Featuring powerfully melodic horns, infectious bass lines and authentic vocals, this troupe of music makers are comprised of some of the Australian music industry’s leading musicians. Individually they have toured and recorded as members and session artists with some of Australia’s top bands including; Thirsty Merc, The Beautiful Girls, Watussi, Dereb And The Ambassador, The Panics, Lisa Mitchell and The Vampires, to name a few.

With such an array of talent in one group, it’s no wonder The Strides are in high demand, recently inking a deal with European label “Record Kicks” based in Milan, for European and North American distribution. Locally, ‘The Strides National Reclamation Tour’ will play capital cities and some regional areas on their biggest and most exciting national tour yet.

News : COSAMP Open Day

cosamp writes" COSAMP Open Day announced for September 3rd, 2011   The College of Sound and Music Production (COSAMP) today announced its inaugural Open Day for student information would be held on Saturday, September 3rd, 2011 from 11:00am to 3:00pm.   Prospective students are invited to attend the campus Open Day to learn more about COSAMP post-secondary study courses. The Advanced Diploma study options on offer are aimed at those participants wishing to gain future work placement in the Music Industry. School leavers and mature age students are encouraged to apply for the limited number of places available in the 2012 student intake.   Mr Kye Thomas, Director of COSAMP, stated that the implementation of a unique “Industry Reference Group” of Music Industry professionals was a groundbreaking initiative for the college. The Industry Reference Group forms an expert panel of qualified industry professionals who are available to advise and assist students in their transition from study into employment in the Music Industry.   Mr Thomas also said that COSAMP’s deliberately limited class sizes would result in far greater student/trainer contact time than that offered by other training providers in the industry.   Situated at 766a Hawthorn Road in the bayside suburb of Brighton East, the COSAMP training facilities offer students the opportunity to work hands-on with the latest music production software in a boutique learning environment. Every student will have access to a state-of-the-art digital audio workstation (DAW) during structured lesson times and the chance to work in a fully operational commercial recording studio facility attached to the campus.   Prospective students will be treated to a series of practical demonstrations of industry standard audio systems and software at the COSAMP Open Day, with the opportunity to try out many of the activities in an interactive, hands-on format. Trainers and staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide expert advice on entry into the Music Industry via structured training. Representatives of the Industry Reference Group will also be on hand to offer expert advice on career development post-study.   COSAMP Open Day commences 11:00am on Saturday, 3rd September 2011 and bookings are essential for studio tours. Applicants can visit www.cosamp.com.au to register their attendance online or phone COSAMP on (03) 9592 4801 to arrange a timeslot. "
