It was around ten years later, that the DJ MANPOWER , realised this could be problematic, coming from a hetrosexual male.Manpower goes on to say he a saw huge spike in notoriety and interest within his techno style style dance music and assumed this level of success would translate throughout his entire career. Manpower explains this early success was down too ‘New Energy’ and later discovered that this ‘new Energy’ only lasts for so long. The music audience inevitably looks for the ‘The Next New Energy’ Geoff Kirkwood, now explains to peep, that after ten years in the music industry, there is an ‘Old Energy’, which embraces the legacy figure mentality. Manpower sites local entrepreneur - Paul Skevington as a major influence which has contributed to his world wide success and career in dance music. Manpower remembers playing at Newcastle’s ‘Stage Door’, Cosmic Ballroom gigs, along with ‘The Red Rooms’ and legendary dance night in Newcastle called ‘Nice’ , which were all organised and promoted by Paul ’SKEV’ Skevington. Manpower also mentions Tommy Caulker and his legendary World Headquarters club as an iconic club night venue in Newcastle upon Tyne. WHQ will see thirty years at the top this coming weekend.peep, take this opportunity to ask if the Bed Wetter album was more biographical than his previous house music pieces. Manpower explained that dance music can be a narrow field and wanted to develop his personal ideas. This idea and ideology developed the album Bed Wetter. Geoff, reflected and said “ Experimental Music is For Bed Wetters” this, of course, was a ‘tongue and cheek’ comment and later realised that he himself, had to own the name and deep dived into the whole mindset behind the sound and the context.

peep® podcast interview Newcastle Grime Artist H-Man talks seeing Demons and making his own genre of music
peep catch up with Grime music artist 'H-Man' Hendaz at The Five Swans Pub in Newcastle's centre. H-Man started in music career within Newcastle's rave scene here in Newcastle upon Tyne. H-Man explains he felt he had so much more to offer on a lyrical level and began to look to Hip Hop for inspiration.  It was at this Rave at Gateshead's Sage building that he first met local Grime and rave Mc - Just B. H-Man was beginning to realise other genres of music including london Grime music and sites 'Wiley'  and 'Skepta' inspirations to this day.H-Man ( Hendaz) recently performed at RAP-TIME, which is a local open air hip hop open mic night organised by hip hop artist's Rick Fury and Gilly Man Giro. Rap Time welcomes local talent within the genres of Grime, Hip hop and rave. It was at this event peep became familiar with H-Man, performing 'All For the Toon' which was a self reflective social comment based around the city council's regeneration initiative, ironically called - 'The Rise' within the entire Scotswood area of Newcastle. The Rise was an ambitious council project that saw hundreds of houses along with schools and libraries torn down and demolished to make way for new, next generation housing projects. It was at this moment myself and H-man realised we both grew up on the same street of Whitehouse Road in Scotswood. Our conversation then developed into the class system that seems to grip this city and suggest that, could it be the middle class that decides where the working class reside. H-Man also mentions his time at Newcastle College of Art, explaining that a tutor singled him out for being working class and suggesting further, that H-Man will have to work harder to achieve his goals within this educational system. Hendaz, also shares his thoughts and fears to a time he was soul searching for some kind of guidance or sign. It was at this point the grime artist witnessed a Goat, which can be seen as representing an evil spirit or bad omen.  Please check out the full interview peep talk to Grime Artist H-Man Hendaz in Newcastle upon Tyne.If your interested in seeing H-Man in action and want to hear 'All For The Toon' please check the links below.H-MAN performs at RAP TIME hosted by Gilly Man giro and Rick Fury under Byker BridgeH-Man and NATONORTHEAST perform at Rap Time under Byker Bridge
