The winter is almost upon the Nordic countries. Time to dive into the darkness with WANHA. This is a project of Joni Vanhanen, a profilic producer/singer/hiphop-artist from Jyväskylä, Finland, known for his versatility above all. In addition to being one of the most respected underground hiphop producers in Finland he has worked with all kinds of music from metal to pop.
WANHA combines all of these influences with surprising ease. The Wait is a slice of trippy downtempo electronica, as dark as the northern days and cold as the nights, with haunting, pitch-shifted vocals that add an even more gripping tone to the distinctively Nordic song. WANHA is working on his debut album, so expect to hear more music from him very soon.

Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey is London-based artist Danny Currie's 3rd release of 2017.
Field recordings of his coastal hometown are merged with spectral guitars and washes of electronic noise to create a droning ambient panorama which seems to crest and recede like the Irish Sea heard in those same field recordings.
Released on his own Anschauen Records, Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey follows January's 'Verschollene EP' (Spheredelic Records), and 'Covers 2017' - a Soundcloud release of cover tracks.
Verschollene EP is Shock of Daylight’s 4th and most ambitious release. The tracks stretch longer, spanning more genres than before, with minimal techno, ambient noise, and modern classical influences standing out.
Despite the complex blend of styles the tracks themselves are simple and focused, with often a single figure or concept spun out to its conclusion, clearly drawing inspiration from the ambient work of artists like Brian Eno and William Basinski, as well as proto-electro/krautrockers like Cluster, Harmonia and Neu!

electronic, ambient, krautrock, noise, psychedelic
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.”
Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.
Their Debut Album “Dream within a Dream” was released early in 2018. The 12 songs on their Album, lean towards an electronic sound that incorporates a variety of influences ranging from the music of the 80’s until today. Darkwave sounds, Jazz harmonies, Rock and Dance drum beats resonate together and mature into something darkly romantic.
