David Beckham’s second son Romeo has recently announced on his Instagram account that he has signed his first ever professional contract. The 19-year old has signed with Inter Miami’s second team Fort Lauderdale CF, who play in the 3rd division of the USA. He is still far off the heights his father was at his age, but this is still a pretty good start.

Many congratulated the young player, including of course his mother Victoria Beckham. She told her son; “We are so proud of you Romeo x”. Former Juventus player and now Inter Miami player, Blaise Matuidi, also congratulated the player

Reports in America say that the player still doesn’t have a defined position but is very versatile playing in numerous positions. He still hasn’t made his debut for the team but it has been reported that he will first showcase his talents next Sunday against Tuscon.

New PBS and TVM logos launch met with controversial reactions

New PBS and TVM logos launch met with controversial reactions
Sep 7 2021 Share

The reveal of the new ‘Public Broadcasting Services’ (PBS), ‘TVM’, and ‘TVM news+’ logos was met with quite a controversial reaction. With a new schedule of programmes to start from the last week of September, the submission by bespoke company was chosen from a total of 21 entries after a public competition was launched at the end of July. The idea to incorporate Malta’s cross with the symbol of media play was to showcase the idea of a forward moving icon, stated designer Ryan Calleja. 

The reaction to the new logos was, safe to say, quite mixed. Some weren’t very impressed with them, some asking whether minimalism as a concept was heard about on the island and other saying that kindergarten students would have done a better job. Others however defended the update, with one in particular stating that there is zero support for artists and that not even a simple logo update is exempt from mockery.

With Autumn around the corner and the last few weeks of summer seemingly going at full speed, the Maltese Music scene is no different with a plethora of local artists putting out some stellar work to see off Malta’s scorching season! From hip-hop bars to funky rhythms, we’ve got some gems for you this week.

SterjoTipi – Differenti 

Beloved local band SterjoTipi are back with a new release from their upcoming album ‘Supereroj’ and we are already hyped. The Maltese-speaking band’s track ‘Differenti’ is an empowering track which the band says was written to encourage people to stand out from the crowd and feel confident.

Hearing the Maltese language in music is already a plus and when it’s a gorgeous track like this one, you just can’t help but fall in love.


JC.B – National Submerge Week

Budding local hip-hop artist JC.B’s first album ‘National Submerge Week’ is a testament to everything great about the Maltese Music Scene. Slick flows, gorgeous instrumentals and collaborations on collaborations.

Featuring some of the hottest local talent in Sam Christie, JOON, Chris Vella and Milo Bank$ as well as a bold music video which was filmed, produced and edited by local art collective The InSynk Collective, ‘National Submerge Week’ is an an album which you should definitely add to your playlist.


J Joy – Dance Again

Malta’s dance music veteran J Joy’s first track of 2021 ‘Dance Again’ is a showcase of why he has been in the scene for so long. The chill, groovy track brings all the summer vibes and is the perfect soundtrack for a pool day or gorgeous Maltese sunset.

Dance again is J Joy’s first release since his EP ‘Sundowner’ in 2018 and it is great to see Malta’s dance music scene constantly spicing things up.


Milo Bank$ – Kalopsia

Apparently, Kalopsia is Milo Bank$’s last piece of work which he’ll be releasing out of Malta and it looks like the rapper wanted to go out with a bang.

The 8-track album is Bank$’s last before taking some time off and brings together everything from sombre ethereal sounds to banging hip-hop beats, be advised: the pen-game is strong with this one.


Luke Chappell – Hold On

As he continues to traverse the local and international music scene, there has never been a moment where Luke Chappell did not impress and his latest track ‘Hold On’ is no exception.

Emotional bars, a gorgeous instrumental and a now-signature heart-wrenching vocal performance from Chappell himself, we can’t wait to see where this young artist goes next in his career.


Paris to Istanbul – You Leave Me Jaded

Unlikely-project turned funk Masterclass, Paris to Istanbul’s most recent release is the ideal summer tune to cool down to and it’s all about moving on and vibing out.

The tune’s funky rhythm and production from Mathematikal’s Jay Zinga and Red Electrick bassist Ivan paired with Bee’s stellar vocal performance, Paris to Istanbul is definitely on our list of local favourites.
