“What I Came Here For” is the new emotional song by Luca Fogale. A well-made piece that touched our hearts.
“What I Came Here For” was written following a story my grandmother told me about being caught in a bombing raid with my grandfather in Italy during World War II. She recalled that when the attack started and they tried to find cover, one of her family members was killed, and they realized that all they could do was hold on to each other and hope to make it through unharmed.
Over the past few years of playing and sharing my music everywhere that I possibly could, I started to notice a trend. Out of all my songs, people felt the most profound connection to "What I Came Here For." Regardless of what the reason was, the song usually incited conversation – I have spoken with people who had experienced situations that were similarly devastating to the event that I wrote the song about, people who listen to it every morning to help them get out of bed, people who had made an effort to reconnect with their partner after listening to it, and countless others with a seemingly unlimited number of reasons why they were drawn to it above all else. This song has been one of the things that have helped me to remember how intensely music can connect us, which in turn has helped me to constantly rediscover the reasons why I chose to write songs in the first place.
My hope is that this studio recording of “What I Came Here For" is able to reach and connect with even more people, and in turn start even more of the kinds of conversations that I’ve been so privileged to have already had so many of."
Inspired by the ever-fleeting recollection of memories, Distant Horizons, is a vista for times since passed, frozen moments we can always return to. Whereas the last album, Sunwarper, was a reflection on our chaotic times, Distant Horizons represents a momentary reprieve, looking out onto the horizons of our past.
Michael Jakucs has been creating warped, atmospheric electronic music under the moniker Selles since 2013. Field recordings and a keen attention to sonic detail create an audible palette which Jakucs uses to craft nostalgia dripped tunes. Memories play a key role in the inspiration of the melodies, as wistful synths give way to dusty beats while the songs drift into times since passed.
Nick performs and records with Saxsyndrum, Best Fern, and Rêves Sonores. As to why he’s waited until now to produce work under his own name, Schofield says, “I’ve always worked on music under a moniker or as a band, so this is somewhat exposed solo territory for me. Having grown up going to galleries and exhibitions with my mom, I always held high regard for artists who go by their own name. Personally, it implies acceptance. This music is ‘me’, it just felt like the most natural nomenclature.”
Nick Schofield continues the ambient tradition pioneered by Hiroshi Yoshimura and Brian Eno, allowing for the soothing effects to wash over us all.
Schofield is a Montreal-based musician, producer and radio host with a BFA in Electroacoustic Studies from Concordia University.
Comprised of minimal instrumentation and field-recordings, Water Sine is a soundtrack for sleep; an antidote to insomnia. Softness and simplicity. A sound that beckons for tranquility and release.
Water Sine started in June 2016 as a way to create music more fluidly, using somewhat specific production parameters that guided the compositions. Schofield used just one synthesizer (Yamaha PSS-270), one effect pedal (BOSS RV-3) and an Edirol field-recorder.
“Even though I tracked with Ableton Live, I treated the DAW like a 4-track recorder, so I had limited channels and editing options. The music itself is very much my way of coping with insomnia and tapping my nocturnal creative energy.”

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
