The Rebel Beat

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 Subscribe on all your favorite podcast platforms!
