Hailing from St. Petersburg, Russia, Dimitry Kuzmin aka Nuage is no newcomer to the producing world. Kuzmin began producing under the musical alias of Nuage six years ago with his early releases deeply rooted in drum and bass. His first solo release ‘Missing You’ was included in the Medschool ‘New Blood Compilation’.
His more recent productions have shifted in sound to encompass a wider range of influences and styles, in his own words “to express a broader spectrum of emotions”. Nuage’s first full length release, the incredibly vibrant and deep ‘Music Of Branches’ paid homage to the stylings of Garage, Deep House and 170BPM Eletronica, dropping on Dublin-based Absys Records. With a second LP ‘Print Of You’ released on American Translation Records, Nuage saw further records released on labels such as French imprint Roche Musique, Food Music and Blu Mar Ten.
Nuage continues to create emotionally charged, elevating music, channeling his love of various contrasting genres into his compositions, the end result of which is always a mutiformity of sonic brilliance.
Critically acclaimed electronic production duo Deafkid return with new music for 2017.
After a busy 2015/2016 working with artists such as Will Joseph Cook, Emika and Pillars, Deafkid have returned with a four track EP. Produced, engineered and mixed by themselves in their cellar studio, the new record showcases their instrumental talents alongside their ear-captivating production, lush harmonies and thoughtful lyrics.
Deafkid members Chris Lockington (UK) and Florian Sauvaire (FR) met whilst working together with Ghostpoet on his Mercury Nominated debut album and subsequent tours. The duo are obtaining avid listeners having accumulated over 340,000 spotify plays from their last single alone, Rosary, which made its debut on Lauren Laverns BBC Radio 6 specialist segment Headphone Moment. Deafkid are keen to show their development since last release - Dialects EP.
HEATERS is Nolan Krebs, Joshua Korf, Ryan Hagan and Ben Taber.
The Grand Rapids, Michigan-based band got their start in 2014 - a year which saw the band make some tremendous leaps, spewing out a handful of homespun EPs, split records, and an appearance on Stolen Body’s Vegetarian Meat psych compilation. Their first EP, Solstice, was released on Dizzybird Records. Brooklyn-based psych label Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records released a 7" at the beginning of 2015, "Mean Green", as well as the band’s debut full-length long-player, "Holy Water Pool" in September.
The group has drawn acclaim across the globe for their spacey, driving take on West Coast psych rock. Tapping into both the twang of their ‘60s garage compatriots and building their own brand of expansive, cosmic swells, Pitchfork calls the band “catchy and kinetic,” noting their “energy and hook writing are clearly on point.” Combining a seemingly constant output of “reverb-coated, fuzz-studded, hard-driven garage psych” with a kaleidoscopic, hip-shaking live set, HEATERS are quickly forging something new and exciting.
Brooklyn-based Norwegian singer/songwriter/composer/guitarist. His eclectic and richly melodic debut, Faces Down, written and recorded at 16, was named among the best albums of the year, and listed as one of the most remarkable debuts of 2002 by Rolling Stone Magazine. Follow-up Two Way Monologue was an Album Of The Year in Uncut Magazine and solidified Lerche's global momentum. He toured extensively across the world both solo, with his band, and opening for artists such as Air, Stereolab and Elvis Costello, appearing on stages such as Carnegie Hall, Hollywood Bowl and Royal Albert Hall. In 2006 Lerche released the jazz-inflected Billboard Jazz Top 5 album, Duper Sessions, followed by Phantom Punch - his first album not recorded in Norway - as well as his acclaimed Original Soundtrack for the 2007 Steve Carell/Juliette Binoche hit movie Dan In Real Life, where Lerche also appeared in a cameo as himself. Having relocated to Brooklyn, Lerche's countless dynamic live performances, often completely alone on stage, continued to reach new listeners, while his music continuously explored new themes and styles. 2009's Heartbeat Radio won US critical acclaim, including from the LA Times: "No matter what genre he's working in -- fuzzy garage rock, breezy vocal jazz, acoustic folk-pop -- this young Norwegian singer-songwriter crafts catchier choruses than many musicians who've been working twice as long as he has. His refrains always pay off". In 2010, Lerche co-wrote the song "Dear Laughing Doubters" for another Carell hit comedy, Dinner For Schmucks. In 2011 he appeared on David Letterman's Late Show for the second time, performing a song from his self-titled (and first self-released) album, of which Rolling Stone Magazine said, "the man has grown since his early-2000s days as an indie-pop prodigy: Now a dependably intriguing wordsmith, he still shows no shortage of unusually intelligent quirks". In 2012 Lerche was honored to appear on an official postage stamp in Norway. 2014 saw the release of his celebrated dissonant and mostly ambient score for the Sundance indie-hit movie, The Sleepwalker, and a new career peak, the album Please, which Popmatters called "a pop masterpiece”, while naming it one of the best albums of the year. 2017 sees Lerche embarking on a new world tour, starting in Norway in January.
PVT are international, though they're known as Pivot to anyone in the know. They're an act that's embraced technology at every turn - gritty, new, confronting - and their uncompromised songwriting and musical understanding have seen their first four albums released to global acclaim. They've been all over, both on their own steam and in the support of acts like The Arctic Monkeys, Gary Numan, Warpaint, Bloc Party, and Gotye. After years of touring the band wound up cast far and wide residing each in a different continent. Men of the world. Seasoned campaigners.
2017 sees members Dave Miller along with brothers Richard & Laurence Pike return home, with their fifth album. Ask em why it was so long between drinks? They'll tell you it's none of your business. Ask what brought the three of them back together and they'll say the same thing.
PVT have been in an on going scrap with their status for years. Their uncompromising approach to musical self-determination has seen them battling labels, trends and sometimes their own audience. Chin-scratching white men with dreadlocks. Warp records disciples. They've come away veterans, masters in a precise, musical, and beautiful violence. But the content, the meaning, has never been this sharp, and especially never this political.
Sailor & I
Swedish singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Alexander Sjödin doesn’t fit most of the archetypes associated with electronic music. Under the moniker Sailor & I he mines a territory that brings to mind the melancholic, ambitious and richly orchestrated songwriting of Sigur Ros or Bon Iver, as much as the deep Balearic techno class of DJ-producers such as Solomun and Dixon. And yet it’s all done in such a way that you’re liable to hear his music crop up in the sets of unashamed populists like Pete Tong and Eric Prydz. He is that rare creature, a serious, boundary-pushing producer who has the common touch.
He first caused an A&R storm on Soundcloud in 2012 with "Tough Love’, a string-swathed ballad that would later get a full release on Black Butter, the London label that discovered, Jessie Ware, Rudimental, Clean Bandit and Gorgon City. Sailor & I’s reputation has been growing steadily since, with the me mix of ‘Turn Around’ on the respected Italian label Life and Death sealing his reputation.
Encompassing electronic dance and pop, Sjödin’s forthcoming album showcases both his dancefloor credentials and his flair for a memorable hook. Amongst the stand out tracks 'Flickering Lights' mingles a gradually building deep house pulse with widescreen atmospherics and grand sweeps of synthesized melody whilst the haunted pop of 'Fire on the Moon' contains something of Trentemøller's doomed orchestral techno majesty.
The duality of his moniker Sailor & I, is intended to represent the two wills competing inside Sjödin – reason and drive, ego and id. As it is for many people, music has always been a release, from Sjödin’s discovery of Beastie Boys and Kiss to a Road-to-Damascus moment when he was lit up by an orchestral performance on television as a boy.
“This started as an indie band project, but now I’ve built a profile as an electronic act. In the future, though, it could go anywhere.” Alexander Sjödin concludes. To date Sjödin has played shows from Japan to Bukarest, Moscow to Ibiza, London to Paris. “The important thing is for me to be able to spend my time making music and delivering it to people. Until I know I’m playing at least 100 shows next year, I won’t be happy.”
EKDK & Apollo´s Messenger
EKDK:An 80000 km journey, two ripped up summers, circle ritual dances around the Antartic; ancient survival rites, the miracle that hatches out after winter, an accurate glare that pierces the solid darkness, the fertile intimacy, the deep love that finds its way in a shapeless world, the birth, life stating its order in the face of entropy, the shine of a smile: EKDK
Apollo’s Messenger: The search of love, above everything else. Once love is found, and it is just you and the loved one, everything else goes away, disappears into nothing, meaningless. All that is left is you and the lover, loving.
