Introducing the cosmic sounds of 55 Cancri e

Posted in News on November 1, 2016 by dk


55 Cancri e - Alltid duOn her debut full length album, on Danish label Music For Dreams, Swedish artist Sara Hausenkamp lets her dreams of space travel come to full fruition. With a steady hand on her guitar, she steers us through the desert at night, through the cosmic noises of space, and finally to the distant planet 55 Cancri e.

Ranging from melancholic to hopeful, the music of 55 Cancri e is perhaps an expression of Hausenkamps longing for a better home planet, and for the possibility of escape. In creating these kinds of science fiction lullabies, she is preparing us for both the beauty and the sadness of a looming future.

Using her voice mainly to hum or whistle along, she does however break the silence on a few tracks to sing in her native tongue. On “Rävjakt” she imagines a turning of the tables, where the fox hunters are chased out…

Posted in News on October 5, 2016 by dk


mluv001Portuguese DJ and producer, João Nery – AKA Nery – presents his debut album, 33, on new label Madluv Records; a collection of 12 spellbinding electronic tracks.

On 33, Nery blends electronic and acoustic patterns, proving that having different influences can result in something special. If “Silent Light” brings the uttermost Flying Lotus feelings, “Snake’s Head” pushes soul to a modern era.

Each track presents something fresh: from the organic and delicate textures in tracks, “Give U” and “Mom”, where Teebs and Shigeto can be felt on the horizon, to a dauntless and original pop beat in “Jealous” or to the dance between synths and guitars in “Jigsaw About Noise Known Illusion” like a kind of aurora borealis.

The Portuguese producer spent more time in studios, while recording musicians, than actually producing his tracks. Nery summoned 14 artists, including jazz musicians, percussionists, singers and producers, including; Soia and Elisa…

Posted in News on September 30, 2016 by dk


David August to Release “The Spell / A Golden Rush” EP Having performed in front of over 100,000 people this year alone, David August is set to finish 2016 in typically trailblazing fashion. His forthcoming “The Spell / A Golden Rush” EP is the second for Counter Records(Ninja Tune).

Lending weight to the announcement is news of August sharing the bill with electronic supergroup Moderat in Brussels (30/9) and Amsterdam (1/10) this weekend.

The 12” partners August’s previous release “J.B.Y. / Ouvert” and feels like a natural progression from where it left off. Boasting the same craftsmanship he lends to all of his productions, ‘The Spell’ track unites propulsive breakbeats and soaring pads over a lush sound-carpet of delicately arranged noise and field recordings before taking a sudden turn, a woman’s voice intruding to bind “The Spell” in words.

‘A Golden Rush’ also utilizes vocals, representing David August’s first officially released co-written song alongside hitherto unknown singer-songwriter Nelia Kit. On…
