Grej is the solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist from Fredericton, NB. This is Grej's  first single and video      “Part 3”  of the new album i/Variations. The video was choreographed /performed with dancer Mateo Galindo Torres with artist Carlos Delgado. It explores the process of expressing and absorbing rebellious actions. The work is built from traditional Colombian folk songs, which cater to the perpetual rhythmic layers. This eventually gets swallowed by waves of synth and bowed metal objects - the thematic motif of the album. The album is a four part project where each musical work navigates through a physical and emotive journey that features manipulated cymbals and a Roland Juno synthesizer.

New track Bring You Back by autoclub

A2359026919 16

autoclub's musical aspirations began early. "My parents handed me a cheap guitar when I was seven years old. No lessons or anything, they just gave me the instrument to explore. I am so grateful for this, as I imagine that maybe if my parents had pushed me to take lessons first thing, I may not have been so open to the instrument. As you may have guessed, the guitar and I became quick friends and I spent a lot of my time noodling and figuring out my own chords. I didn't write my first real song that had a structure to it until I was 15 and used chords that I taught myself by ear from popular songs I was listening to at the time."

autoclub will be releasing two new singles within the next month, in addition to "Bring You Back", which follows up the single "Cat". I don't want to reveal too much about the songs themselves, but I will say recording them was some of the most fun I've had," autoclub says. "On the surface, someone listening might think, "Sure, this is a nice groove" but there is so much more recorded in the tracks that you could pick out by listening to the songs more than once. I'm talking about funky staccato guitar riffs, underlying vocalizations, and weird sounds made with odd instruments. I truly hope someone out there listening enjoys the songs as much as I enjoyed recording them."

New album Buddha Bowl by No Mask Effect

2017-07-07 21:32:08 UTC

New

Psychonavigation Records founder, Keith Downey returns with his latest musical offering, Buddha Bowl. Under the guise of No Mask Effect, the prolific Downey has just released his fifth project in under two years through Psychonavigation Records.

The album opens with “Be Good To Us”, a diverse mix of industrial complex beats, electronic and Afro-Caribbean inspired vocal snippets alongside an ear worm of a saxophone groove. On “Siren” the mood shifts with a lush sea of sound drifting from the speakers. A sinister yet tranquil string melody lurks beneath the audio waves, eventually emerging to create a beautiful piece of effortless ambient.

Meanwhile the mysterious bells, chimes and subtle, pulsing rhythm of “Hidden Surprises” takes Downey's long time love of Ambient music to new territory. With chattering electronic beeps and bleeps, celestial vocal samples and an ultrasound inspired bassline that is both intriguing and unexpected.

“Dark Emotion” however, reveals itself to be more enigmatic rather than pessimistic.  An eight minute sensatory expedition of obscure samples both organic and electronic, nature sounds, glorious synths spiraling electronic loops are all included in the production. Music for headphones, this track's intricacies can only unfold with repeated listens.

With what is undoubtedly his most accomplished and eclectic collection to date, Buddha Bowl should satisfy long time No Mask Effect fans while exposing his unique sound to many new listeners. 

Track List


  • Be Good To Us - 03:01 
  • Nooris

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
