Belsonic 09 - Bell X1

Post categories:

ATL | 22:37 UK time, Saturday, 29 August 2009


Describe in a tweet: Mexican comfort blanket.

What went down: This is just the ticket. Bell X1's music is remarkably warm - as if imported from the Caribbean via Dublin City. And given it's a bit bloomin' freezin' at the moment, we're appreciative of those cosy vibes. The ever charming Paul Noonan also has the most reassuring voice in the world. A total change of pace from the madness of Dizzee and the Daweale brothers but (in our fragile state) a somewhat welcomed one.

The highlight: Being reminded that 'Rocky Took a Lover' and 'Flame' are two of the finest pieces of music written on this island. It's a bitersweet feeling however as both (the latter especially) really should have been massive hits all over the world. What's wrong with people?
