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."
Formed in 2008, Arms That Fit Like Legs are an independent instrumental-rock/postrock/electronic band from Dublin, Ireland. Initially a 4-piece of Mike Mahon (Guitar), Mark Lynch (Guitar), Gordon McCaughley (Bass) and Michael McCaughley (Drums), their self-titled debut EP was released in September 2009.
In 2010, the band became a trio, replacing acoustic drums with electronic beats. Their mini-album, 'Plane Figures', was then released on 10 December 2011.
On 'Plane Figures', Irish Times music writer Jim Carroll said, "Fans of post-rock instrumental wig-outs and brain-funk will dig this, especially the intriguing diversions which lead track “Bear Shark Explosion” takes."
After a brief hiatus of a few years while some of the band lived in London, they started writing music/performing again in 2016. In January 2018, they released the track 'You Will Go On My First Whistle' , and are set to release their first full-length album 'Legwork', later in 2018.
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.
Kayobe has just released his new single "Sun Don't Shine".
"My new single “Sun Don’t Shine” started as you can imagine: on a rainy day. I came back to my home studio after writing the day off otherwise and started messing around. Eventually, I came up with the beat, which was inspired by minimal dark electronic and hip-hop influences. After I came up with the beat I met and connected with Olive B. We went through a bunch of beats and ideas the first time we met up. “Sun Don’t Shine” really grabbed her attention so it was the first thing we decided to collaborate on. We wrote the lyrics on the track and her voice ended up being an incredible fit for the style of the song; her character really soared over the minimal nature of the beat.
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.
