The Rebel Beat is Firebrand Records podcast of radical political music across different genres, and across different continents, hosted and produced by Aaron Maiden on unceded Mohawk territory in Montreal.
It is the mixtape to a riot against police brutality. It is your nightly newscast set to bass and beats. It is a rallying cry against apathy. It is protest anthems from Hong Kong to Istanbul to Ferguson to Montreal.
The podcast drops once a month, and will feature interviews, collaborators, and accomplices. Get it through Firebrand Records’ Soundcloud page, or http://www.rebelbeatradio.com. Subscribe on all your favourite podcast platforms!
About Firebrand Records
We are living in an era of significant protest. In recent years, people around the world have surprised each other with their courage, strength, and willingness to stand against injustice, militarism, and corruption. And where there has been protest, there has been music.
Born from these times, Firebrand gives a platform for such voices. The joint-venture between Ryan Harvey (Riot-Folk Collective) and Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine/The Nightwatchman) aims to release music that inspires, informs, and blossoms from these moments.
We know that music alone does not change the world, but we recognize that it is an integral part of the movements that do.
