Discuss – Will Release ‘Synesthetic Landscapes’ Sept. 17th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2013 by E.N.

Discuss - Will Release 'Synesthetic Landscapes' Sept. 17thThe new EP by Discuss is titled ‘Synesthetic Landscapes’ and it will be available September 17th on all digital stores. The album goes down a sensory path where it stimulates the listener to see the colors in each track. The songs create a perfect multi-sensory environment worthy of being enjoyed by everyone. Discuss wanted to demonstrate a unique relationship between color and sound.

Discuss, commonly known as Andres Ortiz-Ferrari, established himself with the self-titled album in 2006 experimenting with sounds that went from IDM to the more indie-rock and electro-pop. He settled himself in Pittsburgh before moving to Puerto Rico and created his own unique sound full of synthesizers, vocoders, warm beats and guest vocalists. The innovative electronic artist had a breakthrough in 2010 with his remix for the SUN GLITTERS track “The Wind Caresses Her Hair.”

After several independent releases, mini-tours and performances, Discuss took a time to rethink his music and develop a new sound. ‘Synesthetic Landscapes’ is the first EP under Sonovibe Records and it clearly demonstrates the ability of this artist to recreate and portray a colorful landscape with music.

Discuss has shared stage with Amon Tobin, Daedelus, Onra, Prefuse 73, School of Seven Bells, Flashbulb, The Books, Tokimonsta, Damn Funk, KRTS and Moreira.

Koloto- Fox Tales(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on June 27, 2013 by E.N.

Koloto- Fox TalesHeralding from pastoral Canterbury, Kent, Koloto is the pseudonym of Maria Sullivan, electronic music producer and bassist in up and coming math rock outfit Delta Sleep (Big Scary Monsters Records).

Koloto released her four debut tracks in January this year and within months has generated serious interest, with multiple plays by BBC Radio Six’s Tom Robinson and Radio One’s Huw Stephens, as well as a burgeoning online following.

Koloto’s sound infuses elements of electronica, post rock, hip hop and Musique concrète, and draws influences from artists such as edIT, Four Tet, Baths and Amon Tobin, to name but a few.

Koloto’s music is a refreshing take on the over-saturated electronica genre, especially as similarity and adherence to passing fads seems to have become the modus operandi. Koloto shuns sample librarys in favor of home made, hand crafted sounds, resulting in a unique pallet of instrumentation that is often hard to define. Editing plays a key role in the compositional process as tiny fragments of sound are intricately interwoven to create complex melodic and rhythmical passages that are both playful and emotive.

PHOTEK drops new album KU:PALM on Oct 23+Free Download

PHOTEK RELEASES BRAND NEW ALBUM ‘KU:PALM’ ON OCTOBER 23, 2012

- Photek’s first artist album in over a decade

- Album Tour to commence January 2013

- GRAMMY nominated in 2012 for his TRON soundtrack remix of Daft Punk

Hot off his Grammy nomination for the Daft Punk remix on the Tron soundtrack, legendary drum and bass pioneer, PHOTEK, drops his new album KU:PALM on October 23, 2012, his first album in over a decade. After a brief time out, PHOTEK signaled he was back in the studio at the start of 2011 with the Avalanche EP –  his first dancefloor-focused release for a number of years. PHOTEK has since gone on to deliver the Aviator EP, a much-hyped DJ-Kicks release for !K7 and now… Now is the time for the artist’s full album. Now is the time for KU:PALM.

“As the album started to take shape it felt like it was sitting halfway between Modus Operandi and Solaris – which I felt was a good place to be. Now it’s finished, it might well be my favourite album to date.”With ‘Modus Operandi’ and ‘Solaris’ both regarded as seminal releases of their time – the word ‘classic’ is  is no  over-statement – this is the message from a producer who has been there and done it all, and is feeling more inspired than ever.

Over the past 20-years Photek, has been on a sonic-journey that has seen him explore all corners of electronic music. Often surprising, always original, it was in 1995 that he released his first Photek release – the still-amazing ‘Natural Born Killa’ EP for Goldie’s Metalheadz. It was a release that transcended the sound of drum’n’bass at the time and his deeper, more intricate take on D’n’B/Jungle went on to form a whole new sub-genre for the scene. Fast-forward to 2012 and he’s just as well-known for his ambient works, cinematic scores from Pirates of the Caribean and The Italian Job, and love of house music. It’s this open-minded approach to sound that has revived so much of his passion for the dancefloor.

Photek  has  drawn  inspiration  from  both  the  old  and  new  on  KU:PALM,  delivering  an  album  that  is  defined  by  new ideas and superior sonics – not genre classification. He explains, “This album had to be the right listening experience for the headphone listeners as much as on a club soundsystem.”

Varying in tempos and ranging in influence, recent tracks such as ‘Aviator’, ‘Sleepwalking’ and ‘This Love’ (with vocals by Ray La Montagne) all feature, sitting alongside a variety of brand new material.

Strangeloop – Fields

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2011 by E.N.

BFDNL021

Released 25/07/2011

Fields is not such much an album as it is an evolving A/V experience, an environment, that leans more in the direction of a Steve Reich inspired minimalist piece than the beat-heavy territory of earlier Strangeloop releases.

Inspired directly by an experience while in an altered state of consciousness, Strangeloop heard a composition which he tried to create directly after, the result being a fluctuating subliminal epic in three sprawling and unique movements : 1. “Plants Inside”, 2. “Ghostlines” and 3, “Becoming Fields”. The movements correspond to three movements within a psychedelic trip; of initial birth and constellation, through to death / dissolution, and then finally a transcendental union of both.

Strangeloop is known mostly for his live-visual executions accompanying an unending list of artists: Amon Tobin, Flying Lotus, 12th Planet, and most of the Brainfeeder roster to name a few. The producer and video maker explores new lush and organic visual worlds in his latest release, available both for purchase with the EP, and as a part of an interactive A/V experience online.

The release features additional synth work by Strangeloop’s long time friend, collaborator, and fellow Brainfeeder, Austin Peralta, as well as sparse vocal revelations by Singapore based vocalist Vanessa Fernandez and Portland based vocalist Anna Gariby. It was mastered by Daddy Kev, and features visual collaborations with artists Gavin Gamboa, Ben Olsen, and Brandon Tay.

1. Plants Inside 
2. Ghostlines 
3. Becoming Fields
