Serge Roetheli Running In Africa

Kankouran – Rivers

In February of 2000 Serge Roetheli and his wife Nicole, began a journey of epic proportion, which took them across five continents over a five-year period. He ran at a pace of 7000 km (4,375 miles) per year while she rode a motorcycle by his side. 

They hoped to increase public awareness of the plight of children around the world. The couple’s impetus was to promote children’s rights worldwide and to help finding effective ways to defend their rights and building support for their cause. 

They logged 40,000 km (25,000 miles) by foot by the time they returned to Europe. Heroes.

Auckland by Shutong Jiang

Stay+ – Scum

One of my favourite acts right now are Stay+, formerly known as ChristianAIDS (until a certain charity took offence). I’m tipping them to be one of the big new dance acts to come out of the UK this year. There are a few tracks up on their bandcamp site, and even a few remixes they’ve done, all worth a listen. I’ve picked out ‘Scum’ as it’s the kind of song I’d like to hear in a club or a good old-fashioned rave (speaking as if I’m a pensioner, which I am). Matching this up, I’ve came across this shot taken at the main gate of Auckland War Museum in New Zealand by Shutong Jiang. Using time exposure, I love the way he captures the stars against the expression of the statue. The music has a night/space feeling that brings the photograph to life. You can find out more on both artists via links below…

Angel Of The Wind by Ranchforman

City and Colour – Northern Wind

.

Let’s make this quick (that’s what she said). I’ve finally been able to upload an image after weeks of frustration with the uploader, and being a busy bee elsewhere. I don’t have much information on Ranchforman as you can see by just the one link below. However, Angel of The Wind was good enough for me to attach a great track from City and Colour‘s new album Little Hell to, which was released this month. Northern Wind is a beautiful song that seems more suited to an Autumn evening, but it will have to supply your Summer needs for now. Links to both artists are below, and of course if you’d like an image or song featured then contact me via the About page…

Dramatic Story by Ran Rankov

Ed Sheeran feat. Mikill Pane – Little Lady

.

Ed Sheeran was featured a few posts back, but this track as part of his A-Team Remixes bundle is worth posting up, possibly even more for Mikill Pane‘s contribution. On Little Lady their styles complement each other; it has the chorus hooks and memorable verses that you’d most recently relate to The Streets. It’s the kind of collaboration that will give Mikill more and more attention, the likes of which Ed is currently achieving, and it will be much deserved.

The issues in the song are easy to find an ideal image for. Ran Rankov from Bulgaria takes a lot of interesting photography, and I came across Dramatic Story from his galleries. I like the way he focuses in on the lady, as the blurred population appear to ignore her plight. You can view, listen, and read more about all those featured via links below…
