Release Date – 18/01/19

Fusion architects, Conor Moore & Ross McCann are the dynamite Scottish duo, Hessian Renegade who draws tailored influences together into their alternative sound from both their love of Hip-hop, electronic music and general crossover styles, alongside Ross’s absolute passion for music production, both are highly experienced in their creative field due to past band projects and collaborative production work. The bold and energetic, Hessian Renegade confidently strides to the forefront this coming Friday 18th to emboss their fresh and inventive sounding debut Ep ‘Oral Spiel’ into our psyche with a crossover/fusion EP that delivers a remarkably well-channelled demonstration of their musical range, as well as exuding a purposefully vehement, yet fun atmosphere to their overall style. The EP is set for release under the boutique independent label, Esquimaux Records and shall be a FREE download available on Bandcamp and all other major digital music media distributors. 

Alongside this exciting new music release, the duo shall also be launching a music video for their third single off the Ep titled ‘Scratchings’. The first single debut was, ‘Bread & Circuses’ which was picked up by Glasgow based professional wrestling company ‘Insane Championship Wrestling’ as the entrance theme for their former Zero G Champion Andy Wild. The single was initially released as a free download back in November 2016, however, a freshly remastered version currently sits on this beasting forthcoming EP. The second single was ‘Renegade’ which was dropped in August of last year along with music video which can be viewed on the following YouTube video below.

‘Renegade’ sits as the third track on the ‘Oral Spiel’ Ep.  

The Ep ‘Oral Spiel’ in its entirety, explodes with energy, combining both flare and appreciation for fusing musical elements, along with imperatively expressed social commentary which is charged with frankness, intensity and laced with black humor. ‘Scratchings’ for example is a gorgeously textured synth track that holds an emotive melody and carefully thought out dynamic that expertly presents a captivatingly alluring dub/ska saxophone section that sits as the hook and is incredibly moving in its intricately formed structure, as lead protagonist, Conor delivers a powerful vocal impact, lyrically expressing socially acute circumstances about fear driven society, the injustices of equality, tribalism, capitalism, the political media circus and it’s negative effects. This is such a beautiful sounding, thoughtfully implemented track that hits straight to the heart of the matter.

The title track ‘Oral Spiel’ opens with a vocal interaction between Conor and Ross which signifies their complete creative synchronicity and delivers a hard-industrial sounding electronic dance track that will have you reeling from the outset. This track assigns itself to offer a maximum vent of frustration as Conor’s lyrical outpour highlights topics such as the absolute annoyance of social media, the music industry and a general lack of authenticity and truth. There is a buoyant, mechanical flow to the track that is bursting with resilience and attitude, and for sure will peel the paint straight off the walls of any live venue situation.

Download ‘Oral Spiel’ Ep for FREE this coming Friday & make sure to follow and support this resolute and highly creative duo in the future months ahead.

In many senses, I am still discovering myself through the complex tapestry in which life continues to weave, gaining unique physical experience in order to aid the progression of my precious spirit, this will continue for the rest of my fated days and my understanding of who I am shall be determined through how I learn to react, act and adapt towards the circumstances I face. I do sincerely hope the span of this life is enough to fully come to terms with the potential of my unique existence, through deep-rooted understanding, compassion, and love, and that I may fully acknowledge the absolute full potential of my existence through the network of others. Thus far the core of my being has learned through unique experience and individual perspective that I am most certainly a creative soul who takes solace in the truth & liberty of artistic expression. Freedom lays behind the eyes within the evocative realm of one's imagination, transforming originality through individual perspective, this is when my art becomes yours. Inspiring, motivating different modes of expression to overall influence and shape a better world, to help elevate to a higher consciousness. We are part of the great web of life and in this way each and every one of us are interconnected, to create a major shift in consciousness. We must wholeheartedly start to believe in what can be created for the greater good of this world, in my view it is most certainly the power of thought and intention which connect us, no matter how near or how far. Being understood has always been of paramount importance to me, self-expression is something I have been aware of from a very young age. From my point of view, artistic expression has always been the most liberating and uniting mode. When I am not caught up in life's cogs I love to write poetry, short stories, and shoot photographs. I adore and feed off music, so I highly enjoy capturing the live music scene in the city of Glasgow, Scotland. I also enjoy writing for Uk Entertainments website, Louder than War, as well as run my own music blog www.Revel Rousers.org, Amalgamating my love of music, writing, as well as photographic expression (Music, Landscape, Street, Wedding), which gives me a great sense of creative release, therefore forging a strong sense of purpose in the way of documenting life's remarkable moments. I find working with creatives within the music industry is wholly inspiring even though at times it can be quite challenging, after all, the greatest realizations and lessons learned are born out of challenges. I figured, seeing as I have a platform for my music reviews, interviews and photography I thought it would be time to create a platform for my creative writing and poetry.....It takes courage to expose oneself through the intimacy of poetry, However, that is how we truly unite and grow in compassion and understanding of each other's true essence. I am a deep thinker, I understand the power of words and their meanings. I also understand how empowering artistic expression can be. There is a raw truth buried within each original idea combined with a power to help change the world. Artistic expression is forever transforming through interpretation, that is what I mean when I say "When My Art Becomes Yours" My philosophy is to understand more, in order to love more....... Love ~M~
