Wilder Gonzales Agreda (native from Los Olivos, North Lima, Peru) begun his music career in 1995 with his first band Avalonia (with Fernando Ponce, Fabián Escalante and Óscar Pita) and, after the brokenhearted split of this early avatar, with Fractal (alongside Wilmer Ruiz and Hugo Medina). Both groups were part of the new peruvian avantgarde history born with the post-rocker and ethereal scene known as Crisálida Sónica.
In 2003 Gonzales Agreda started the independent neo-psychedelic label Superspace Records and since the 00's has taken part on projects like El Conejo de Gaia, Azucena Kántrix (with Christian Galarreta), The Electric Butterflies (with Roger W. Terrones), The Peruvian Red Rockets (with Luis Durand), Martelenor (with Juan Roldán and Hugo Medina) amongst others.
He has been pursuing a musical ethos that makes him one of the most interesting sound artists from Peru today. Gonzales Agreda has released more than 60 discs by now, on his own label and on other ones across the world like Clinical Archives (Russia), Ruidemos (Spain), TibProd (Poland), Limitada (Argentina), Tape Safe (Belgium), Aloardí (Peru), etc. His music work has received outstanding reviews by such cool magazines like The Wire (U.K.), Rock de Lux (Spain), Decoder (U.S.A.), Vital Weekly (Netherlands), Go-Mag (Spain), Loop.cl (Chile), Losing Today (Italy), etc.
In 2014 he put out the album "Lima Norte Metamúsica" (Superspace Records, 2014) with the artwork done by the inimitable neo-psychedelic painter Anthony Ausgang that has received great critics from the press and begun 2015 with the release of a free download computer music single entitled "Música Anticorrupción". 2016 saw the release of "Scala Mega Hertz" and "Polykroma EP". Recently he has put a new album entitled "Paraísos, Revoluciones y Tú" (2017).

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.
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.
