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.
After releasing their first single back in 2016, VEiiLA returns with, as dark as the title suggests, their brand new EP “Dive”. The track list includes 5 absolutely new records and a fresh reworked version of RDMV STR. About a year off since the previous release wasn’t spent in vain: besides studio work, VEiiLA played a handful of shows, sharing the stage with such acts like The Neighborhood, Sian Evans of Kosheen, Alex Clare, Above & Beyond and ATB, and released a number of videos, bringing their live sound to the new dimension.
“We are heroes. We are savages.” With the new EP VEiiLA rediscovers their so-called music for introverts in the new, darker and more intimate shape. Songs like Dive and Never Come Back are soaking with sadness yet remaining charged with energy. On the other hand Mantra, a hypnotic techno anthem, being the most “cheerful” in the album, as well as RDMV STR, bring darkness to the realm of rebel and a dead certain desire to make it their own way. The album’s title “Dive” reflects a state of solitude and edginess of a character behind those songs: whether your whole life is like cliff diving or you need to dive into the darkest depths of your soul to find yourself, these sounds will be with you.
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.”
