Fancy losing yourself for two and a half hours of classical literature and top-notch music…all at the same time?
Introducing Roger Rudenstein, already a celebrated name in America with thousands of Soundcloud streams to his name as well as plaudits from the likes of The New York Times. Roger has an impressive arsenal of work already under his belt, veering from his sensitive take on the devastation AIDS has brought to family’s lives to biting satire at the expense of Presidents past (George W. Bush) and present (you-know-who).
He is now introducing himself to European audiences by reinvigorating an already hugely popular European work in a different discipline – James Joyce’s epic tale of a very extraordinary day in the life of an early 20th Century Dubliner.

Upcoming artist and music producer M3staken (M3) releases his new soundtrack album titled ‘Apex’. The 8-track collection of instrumental hip-hop features original productions with an experimental twist.
Born and raised in South Carolina, M3 made ‘Apex’ as an attempt to create a unique fusion of classical, hip-hop and electronic styles. It’s an ambitious piece of work for a young producer but he states that “as a primarily hip-hop based artist, it was important for me to emphasise the amount of musicality there is in hip-hop, while also using a mix of classical styles and modern techniques”.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Joey Bada$$, FKA Twigs and Jamie xx, M3’s unique style fuses classical, hip-hop and electronic styles.
M3staken’s classical sound contrasting with the hip-hop beats comes from unique techniques such as using live classical pianos rather than samples, escaping the hip-hop cliché. Consequently, there is an authenticity to his music that sets M3 apart from the crowd.
Definitely worth a listen for those ambitious listeners out there who enjoy something that pushes the boundaries!
