Lullaby (I'll Be There)
Out: 16th January
Wexford musical prodigy Mark Duggan returns with one more sparkling composition. This time we turn the clock back to Bowie-esque mixing and a 1970s glam that presents in the delivery as well as in the central idea. With influences ranging from Joni Mitchel, Bruce Springsteen, and Bob Dylan (follow the links for rare signed goodies), this Waterford resident takes the old with the new for a truly distinguished sound.
The music begins with a chiming guitar progression that tinkles along with homely keyboards and a smooth drumbeat. Wavery effects shimmer like sunshine on tarmac as the verse bursts into being. Mark Duggan begins singing, the Bowie style delivery really hits home. We know it's not David but it sounds like him. A nostalgia works in harmony with novel intrigue which juxtapose in waltzing time. A passionate and dreamy sensation builds as the music progresses, as Mark Duggan cosies up with comforting vibes. This short yet memorable track is a songwriting house-burner and yet also reaches out to a specific crowd who, like me, enjoy folky and abstract music.

Ugobam Eddie (feat. Dennisha)
Recorded at the world-famous SAFO Music Group studios, Nigerian born UK artist presents God's Way. If there's one thing we can tell about the cause of the universe is that it loves balance. Balance is another word for justice, and that reminds me of concepts like karma and forgiveness, yin and yang, alpha and omega. I wonder how Ugobam Eddie puts it? Let's listen to his song and find out.
The music begins with Dennisha, her beautiful voice decorates the soundwaves. Then, Ugobam Eddie begins with a hard-hitting rap. He then goes on to describe all the ways he knows God. This is his personal experience and one which no-one can take away. We see wisdom in the world around us and when it touches us we can know that there is more to it than random chance. This guy knows his bible, you could argue that no-one knows the bible better than the devil but it's clear in Ugobam Eddie's energy that he truly loves the words. A great spiritual song that doesn't preach or condone, it just explains from a respectable perspective.
