Hello again from R4NT Magazine..
Back in May of 2006 we first instituted not only the R4NT radio series, but a brilliant new artist by the name of Fink.
In the past year or so that has progressed since then, Fink has been touring around the world playing some of the most prestigious venues and regularly selling out where ever he goes. Having also toured with Zero 7 only after their fourth ever booked gig!! To add to Finkâ€™s ever growing fame, he has recently had a track showcased as the soundtrack to a new MasterCard commercial.
It has been with great anticipation to hear how Fink has progressed in such a short measure into something that holds such acumen.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to talk with Fink and spend a few minutes getting to know him, while talking about his adventures in Distance and Time..

A Fine Cheese
She had just turned 18 and was out ripping it up at the club, but then it dawned on me that she was born in 1985! Heck, I remember what I was doing in 1985, and that made me feel really old..
Gaming is a popular topic of conversation on R4NT these days. I’ve read many opinions on how “Enter The Matrix” is the best game going right now, and I think it just plain sucks; it’s boring and the quality is comparable to an underdeveloped duck embryo. Call me boring, but I remember back …
Zen CD: A Retrospective
What have the ninja’s at Ninjatune been upto for the past decade or so? Since their conception by Jonathan More and Matt black (most know these guys as Coldcut) back in the early 1990′s, there has been a huge cult following and a reputation for finding some of most amazing talent available on the …
Christian Prommer’s Drumlesson
I originally sat down on the couch to read the latest issue of WIRED magazine and decided to plop in some new music.. While dodging the overwhelming amount of ads presented to me in the magazine I was suddenly completely unable to stay focused on what I was looking at and was completely absorbed by the music being played.
…I found a bunch of her books lying around and I just fell over laughing (books on witch craft, and an odd book named “There is nothing wrong with you”)…
Interview with Coldcut

Sónar 2010 – Barcelona, Spain
The festival attracts a lot of outsiders, but the Mediterranean, Spanish and more specifically Catalan nature of the people makes the festival what it is. Catalan people are passionate and this passion is infectious. The atmosphere is electric in Barcelona as a city and heightened by music and intoxicants at Sónar.
Summer Party Naval Styles at Seven RestoLounge
Oysters, like wine are affected by terroir and these Miyagi’s flavor profiles ranged with one showing a cleaner, almost tropical profile and the other being more salty, marine driven. As I was devouring the seemingly endless plates put in front of us, I sipped on a glass of fine sauvignon blanc.

O Restaurant & Lounge revisited
Calgary has a diverse set of urban communities, most of which have the ubiquitous strip mall watering hole. In the South West community of Marda Loop, a reinvention of this paradigm has been established.
Predictions 2010.. and beyond!
So 2010 eh? Almost but not quite (no year zero they say) another decade? It seems like just yesterday that the world was waiting for Y2K. R4NT started publishing in March 2001, so we’re not quite 10 years old yet, but in internet years we are already a senior citizen.
No matter what, the reality of Nelson Mandela is something that deserves screen time. Should this film even remotely intrigue the masses to take interest in this figure, the world would likely benefit greatly from it.
