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..

Amon Tobin – Out From Out Where
Excite your senses..
From an original Jazzy sound back with Bricolage (June 1997) Monsieur Tobin has managed to move farther (Permutation 1998) and farther (Supermodified 2000) away towards his own unique sound. His latest release is certainly no disappointment, yet shows that Amon Tobin is still growing as a musician.
Back From Space is an amazing album …
…Theses stealthy bastards camp out in undercover cop cars tagging speedsters while having a nap or chewing on a donut. God I hate photo radar…
..that compilation CD of the best smooth rock of the 80′s looks really tempting, yet what the hell is going on with their pricing!? A Canadian company, on Canadian television, yet has the audacity to sell in AMERICAN dollars?!

I enjoy cataloging my music, and I was sure the iPod would allow me to have easy and quick access to my favorite tunes at all times. The Real Review

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.
