Ocean (feat Soko)

Yndi Ferreira aka Dream Koala is only 19 years old and just released the first Dream Koala EP, Odyssey, on September 23rd. Already with over 200,000 plays on Soundcloud and support from the likes of Rob Da Bank and Gilles Peterson, last week saw the video premiere for the title track’s gorgeous 3D video (created and directed by Adrien Peze and Albin Merle) that transplants the viewer to an alternate reality with a breathtaking landscape inspired by Terrence Malick’s film Tree of Life.

Ocean (feat Soko)

Odyssey comes from the travels of Ulysses – his fear of never coming back home & never reaching his ambitions,” Yndi said of the EP’s title track. “It’s a track about deception and the fear of death, the fear of never accomplishing your goals. “

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.

Ard Bit – Yelleen, a new Lowriders release

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2012 by E.N.

Lowriders is proud to present this new release Yelleen by Ard Bit. After previous releases on Symbolic Interaction and Shipwrec and appearances on n5MD, Onrecords and Thin Consolation he finds a warm nest at Lowriders.

The Yelleen EP consists of 6 tracks. Cribble and Vixen were made in collaboration with Jor Mesin (part of the beatrotateproject). The two tracks are a step further away from the IDM straitjacket but it stays in the touch and feel of the latter. The transparency and openness is what gives it its unique character.

Cribble moves strongly into the dubby glitch sound with references to Pole and Plaid.
The detailing on Vixen is beautiful, hectic, Warp-ish. A massive blowing bass horn provides the lead and contrast.
Yelleen is something entirely different. It’s a warm, light and seductive roller. Perfect for the dancefloor To top it off Alphabets Heaven, Julien Mier and Strand are on the remix duties.
Alphabets Heaven combines sounds of the other tracks within the Yelleen setting. It treats us on a kitchensink feel, organic and housy.
Julien Mier takes the housy elements to the Chi-town freakness and makes you go all the footwork way.
Strand brings on some electro-funk boogie in the Skweee corner of madness. Analog twists with Yelleen details.

Autonomous Music Releases: Our Chimes/Our Piano by Marley Carroll(free download)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2011 by E.N.

Autonomous Music releases Our Chimes/Our Piano,
a FREE digital 12″ from Marley Caroll,
on November 1, 2011

Pleased to announce that on Tuesday November 1, 2011 Marley Carroll will release Our Chimes/Our Piano, a digital 12”. Our Chimes/Our Piano will be available via Autonomous Music. This is the first release from Autonomous Music—who recently expanded beyond management and booking to include a free label–after Array Vol. 1, a compilation of Autonomous Music artists.

Marley Carroll is a prodigious multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ from Asheville, North Carolina. The beginnings of his musicianship sprang from training in piano, percussion and scratch DJ technique. His 2007 debut album, Melanaster was the result of meticulous bedroom alchemy, sounding like a lost Radiohead LP submerged in ten feet of salt water. The smeared, melancholy pop songs tethered to abstract, electronic rhythms is what NPR called “gorgeously subdued glitch-pop”.

Recent buzz for Marley has been around his landmark abstract house remix of Emancipator’s “Bury Them Bones”. The track was included on Emancipator’s June 2011 release Remixes and became a favorite of the artist’s to play out on tour during summer 2011. Marley was invited to join the Beat Prodigies showcase at the 2011 Decibel Festival, alongside Shigeto, AraabMUZIK, and DJ Krush. While at Decibel Festival, it was announced that Marley would join the 2011 Moogfest lineup–as one of the only local Asheville musicians on the bill.

Taking some existing sketches in a spontaneous turn toward the direction of the “Bury Them Bones” remix, Our Chimes/Our Piano is a departure from Marley’s pop tendencies, for the purpose of exploring the house dynamic. With these purely instrumental tracks, he takes on a brighter sound. Relying on small gestures over long sequences and utilizing acoustic samples, Marley brings us a truly organic sound that is for fans of Four Tet, Caribou and Gold Panda

“Our Chimes” samples chimes from outside Marley’s home. It’s a warm and playful track that keeps you engaged with every small change.

“Our Piano” samples the piano in Marley’s childhood home. Delicate and grimy while still upbeat, the track is the perfect B-Side.

Our Chimes/Our Piano will be available for FREE at

Track listing:
1. Our Chimes
2. Our Piano

Gold Panda – Lucky Shiner debut album(October 11/12th)+free download

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2010 by E.N.

This October, UK-based artist Gold Panda will release his debut album, Lucky Shiner via Ghostly International and his own imprint, Notown Records.

Over the past year or so, Gold Panda has pushed a dreamy, IDM-inspired electronic sound that calls to mind artists like Four Tet and Caribou. He’s been an active producer for years, having gotten his start remixing Bloc Party, HEALTH and Simian Mobile Disco among others, but his own records just started appearing in shops last year, mostly via underground labels and on CD-R. Lucky Shiner will be his second release on Ghostly International, following the You EP from earlier this summer, and his first full-length aside from Companion, an extremely limited compilation of his early 12-inches.

“I didn’t want to write ‘beats.’ I didn’t want bangers. I wanted songs with structure,” says Gold Panda of the album, which was recorded over two sessions at his grandparents’ home out in the English countryside. “They went away over Christmas for two weeks and asked me to look after their dog,” he explains. “I’d walk Daisy in the morning and then make tunes till she pestered me to take her out again, I’d bounce down what I’d done, stick my headphones on and walk her; get ideas and repeat the process.” To get a feel for what Lucky Shiner holds in store, head over to the album’s official website where you can download and stream the track “Snow & Taxis.”

01. You
02. Vanilla Minus
03. Parents
04. Same Dream China
05. Snow & Taxis
06. Before We Talked
07. Marriage
08. I’m With You But I’m Lonely
09. After We Talked
10. India Lately
11. You

Lucky Shiner will be released in the US on October 12th, 2010 via Ghostly International. Notown will release it in the UK on October 11th.

JUNO Review

Following on from his debut artist album Cyclical in 2008, Brighton based producer Ital Tek brings us his sophomore outing, Midnight Colour on the highly respected Planet Mu imprint. Since Cyclical first landed two years ago, other notable productions from the man otherwise known as Alan Myson include the Massive Error EP (also on Planet Mu) and the Mako EP (released on his own label, Atom River in October 2009).

Kicking off with “Neon Arc” – a deliciously fuzzy broody number, with a nod to the Joker-style ‘Bristol Sound’ in the synths – it’s a promising start to what soon unfolds into a magnificent album. Moving through the melodic, reflective Mount Kimbie style “Talis” with its evocatively drawn dripping and chiming, and hollow textured soundscape, to the more abrasive “Moonbow” and “Babylon” (a personal favourite), it’s easy to see why Ital Tek has garnered such a reputation for himself in such a short time.

Keeping versatility at its core, the album moves effortlessly on to “Satellite”, “Subgiant” and “Black And White”, through darker, sparser sounds and lilting whispering patterns, to “Strangelove” – an incredible exploration with a deep, throbbing b-line and unnerving poignancy. In contrast, “Moment Blue” employs some quirky instrumentation and upbeat whinnies of vocal, before the darker, more synth-led vibe returns for the grand finale, spearheaded by the title track. The album closes with “Restless Tundra” – a calm, contemplative number, featuring the lustrous vocal skills of Anneka. Midnight Colour picks up on the sound that has come to define Ital Tek, taking the whole ‘post-dubstep’ tip to new lengths, weaving 2-stepping garage rhythms round sonic textures with plenty of moody atmospheric melancholy.
