Raised in Edmonton, Canada, Wilroy takes R&B as his musical starting point. He’s now based in Liverpool, and cites influences ranging from hip-hop to electronic music and jazz. Recently selected by Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Music talent discovery initiative Future Bubblers, and played on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Worldwide FM & Bandcamp Weekly, 2018 looks to be a promising year for the producer.
Too Dark To See The Green, Wilroy’s debut EP serves as a cathartic journey through the arc of heartache, as told through the ghosts of 70’s soul men. His music paints grand, maximalist sonics: tracks change shape and mutate as they go, akin to the evolution of a dream. The EP’s 5 tracks wring out every last drop; from the opening nightmarish strings, and the dungeon-low dirge of the title track, to the liberated, gospel highs of Ascension.
In trance suites by drums, bass, keyboards and guitar musicians explore the depths of space rock, subtle electronic, ambient and even punk-jazz. Euphonic constellations and electric tales arise of foggy tissues of melody, harmony and pulse suspended in weightlessness. Improvising sound spaceport formed in 2012 at Warsaw, Poland. Michał Jarosz – drums, Jerzy Karpowicz – bass guitar, Bartosz Ługowski – electric guitar, Paweł Wutkowski – keyboards
“When It Started” is the new single byCubs Refrain taken from their upcoming album "Tell Me You Love Me".
"“When It Started” is a plunge into an adolescent state of mind, so writing it definitely sent me back to my teenage years. There are so many emotions flying around at that time, and so many new experiences that are really nostalgic to look back on. I wrote this song on the train on my commute to work, which is the same train I’d take on my escapist trips to the city as a kid, so it really helped channel certain memories.
When you’re young there’s a grand romanticism about running away and leaving everything behind, fuelled by blind courage and young lust. You find yourself faced with situations you didn’t anticipate and learning things that both terrify and excite you. You eventually realize that nobody really knows anything, and retrospectively, it’s kind of hilarious, ‘cause of course you always played it off like you knew it all.
“When It Started” marks the beginning of a story told throughout the album, of a naïve romance and the two kids it swept away. "
Nostress Netlabel is proud to release " Granchite Yumtruso PT 2", the new digital EP by Massimo Ruberti, an artist from Livorno (Italy) who usually define himself as a "Trafficker of sounds and images".
The album is the second part of the EP "Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1 ", released by Nostress Netlabel exclusively for Netlabel Day 2016 organized by the Chilean netlabel M.I.S.T. and which involves Netlabels from all over the world.
It's an album of warm and elegant sounds, scratching the heart and soul of the listener. A work that runs through wilderness, unexplored lands never trodden by human hands. Through listening we find ourselves in a desert devoid of its characteristic and constant wind, driving on non-existent paths, you suddenly find yourself in an oasis where the perspective changes and even the sand seems to take on the color of the sky and thirst suddenly becomes the ' last of the primary needs. The Sax caressing soft carpets of Synth, nocturnal atmospheres through the time gap that separates the vintage from the traditional electronic sound.
"Granchite Yumtruso PT 2" closes a cycle of sounds that gradually stratify with exotic and colored atmospheres, with distant echoes that rest on long carpets with an antique flavor. The voice of Ada Doria in "Wilderness Falling" and "Cosmic egg traveling blues" seems to come out of an 1870 gramophone as it disperses vibrations in the desert.
The sax of Fabio Leonardi paints well-defined shades of color. Notable orchestral arrangements of Roberto Mangoni in "Cosmic egg traveling blues". The songs were recorded at Dogana D'acqua Studio. The work has been mixed and mastered by Francesco Landucci @ Poderino Recording Studio.
Austin Inglett, AKA Electroman, was born in Orange, California in 1996. Electroman's side projects include experimental electronic pop group Moon 2000 )with longtime friends Hayden Corwin and Garrison Murphy) and alternative-punk band Fighting Los Gatos. Now living in Dallas, TX, Electroman released "Stay Forever" as his debut single in 2016. In December 2017, he released his full-length album, Mood Swings.
"The album 'Mood Swings' started coming together when I began living on my own in my apartment in Dallas, TX while going to school at SMU. It was definitely a transitional time and I think you can probably hear some of that in the album. The song “Mood Swings” is the core of the album, as it is basically a reflection of my own mood swings I repeatedly experienced while adjusting to living on my own."
"The Electroman project is my solo project that started taking off while I have been attending college, but it can be traced all the way back to 2011, when I was making music on my iPad using a variety of different music-making apps. Since then, I became addicted to taking the 15 years of classical piano-playing experience I have and applying it to my own music composition. My first “big break” was when I won a remixing contest for Rebecca Black’s recent song “The Great Divide.” Since then, I knew that I had something special brewing. The music I make is simple, but it’s part of the style. There is so much attention to detail and care put into each track, especially in “Mood Swings” and “Don’t You Worry.” I purposefully chose to move away from traditional dance music and steer more towards chillwave and synthpop, and it seems that it was the right move to make."
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.
