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..

You’d have to spend hours to be able to count all the mountain tops within your sight. The wind howls and you get pushed around a little, noticing that you are tremendously high up and one wrong move could land you a long way down..
Quasimode – The Land Of Freedom
Growing up I was heavily influenced by the sounds of classical music, and then later on by Jazz. I fondly recall listening to lots of Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong and more recently Herbie Hancock in his crazy new-age crazy style jazz. I guess you can say I like Jazz. I’ve also …

Xperience: Drum & Bass
I was really excited to sit down and listen to this album, over and over again. This album compiled by Dj Clever is the definition of great Drum and Bass. Hard hitting bass lines, wavering vocals, and mix that together with some sick mixing skills and you have something that’s sure to please.
The “Xperience” line …
..Some punch the clock at a higher frequency so that they can make an extra buck in order to buy a new $50,000 car. Problem is they already drive a two year old $45,000 car!
10 Years of Wall of Sound
This is absolutely the BEST, you heard me: THE BEST Various artists release from a single label I’ve ever heard!
Since starting to review music here on R4NT, I’ve never been so excited to get my hands on a promo than this latest release from Wall of Sound. I’ve been lugging this 2cd compilation everywhere I’ve …

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.
