Bevan Beats

by Nicholas Prior

Welcome to Bevan Beats! This is a fortnightly article and accompanying playlist from us at the Explosion Network. It aims to enable us the ability to share the music we love, discuss a certain theme, or share what we are simply listening to in our everyday lives. You’ll be able to find the playlist on Youtube and on Spotify.

Well if you know me, you know I like to do things differently. So for my Bevan Beats playlists will have a mystery theme and the theme will be revealed a fortnight from the publish date.

For every correct answer to what the mystery theme is that is Direct Messaged to our Twitter, I will donate $5 to a charity associated to the theme. (Capped at $100)


The previous mystery playlist was themed around “Car Crashes”. The Charity I donated to as an associated cause was Transplant Australia. Also please consider becoming a donor yourself
