New album Chasing the Path by grej

2018-04-26 05:23:03 UTC

Unnamed %281%29

grej is the solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist from Fredericton, NB. He has produced works for Toronto Dance Theatre, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, Form CDT, Morris Palter, and Division 85 Films. His work and performances have been described as “rich & curiously cool landscapes”, “sensitive, sophisticated & powerful” and “transfixing”. Specializing in classical minimalism and electronic music, grej seeks to merge these worlds to create truly unique sounds, rhythms, and textures.

 Chasing the Path was commissioned by Hanna Kiel (Human Body Expression) and was presented under the same title by DanceWorks in March 2018 in Toronto, Ont. The piece investigates the beauty and pain of memory.

Grej explores the relationship between classical/contemporary music with electronic sound design. Starting from a pure acoustic world featuring piano, cello, percussion and organ, the thematic material journeys through various stages of distortion and manipulation until reaching a cryptic synth-driven climax.

Mvt 720%cf%87720 web

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.

The vocals weave this electronic veil with soul, trip-hop, and pop textures, retaining an inner tension that seduces the listener and drifts him along in a sentimental, melancholic trip inside the personal stories that are concealed in the lyrics.

The passion of Marva Von Theo for experimentation is evident in their compositions, seeking a way to surpass the identification or imitation of one specific genre and offer the listener the opportunity to feel and interpret the music differently upon every listen. Like a song within a song, like a “Dream within a Dream”.

New album Clear Future by Iain Belcher

0003987916 20

Iain Belcher is an Actor / Musician creating sounds out of Vancouver, BC. Although he's yet to emerge out of the sea of noise, he has produced over 200 songs since 2012 and continues to evolve as a musician and recording artist with every release. With complex soundscapes, intricate musicianship, and unique song structure, his raw-authentic sound reveals more with every listen and grows on you over-time. His newest album "Clear Future" provides more unique vibes with floating vocals over math-rock influenced instrumentation, and interesting progressions.  

"Clear Future" is a result of 4 years chipping away, layering instruments one after another. It shows a big evolution and maturity over previous releases like "Simple Builds", as the focus of the music that was previously on VST-Instruments, turns to live instrumentation and a more cohesive sound. The recording is raw like an early Appleseed Cast, or Dismemberment Plan album as I did it myself, but multiple listens brings out more  - like a Daniel Johnston effect. The album ranges from smooth instrumentals, technical math-rock sections, more mainstream grooves, and post-rock builds. 

Track List


  • Introduction - 02:49 
  • Becomes Us - 03:34 
  • Where We Go - 03:30 
  • Here - 03:40 
  • Colours - 03:56 
  • Breathing Moments - 03:50 
  • We Disappear - 03:09

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

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.”
