Par is the project of Nacho Adda (Montevideo, 1983) focused on conceiving spaces and concepts with electronic music. Par has 3 studio albums, 2 EP and 3 remixes albums with 4 nominations to the Uruguayan Music Graffiti Awards as well as soundtracks for several short films and drama plays.
Sueños de irme is the first single from the upcoming album of the Uruguayan electronic producer Par, to be released in 2018. It's the second time that the Montevidean artis
collaborates with the local singer / songwriter Alfonsina. (The duo already recorded together in 2012 for a version of his track Colateral). It's a return to the a more conventional song format for Par, with a track that combines the voice and guitar of Alfonsina with a minimalist beat, climatic synths and the deep groove of the bass.

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
