Joeru – Early Abstractions

“Put simply Early Abstractions is a project I’ve been working on for a couple months now. Most of the tracks were done early in the morning like 3am to 6am (Which is when I found I am most creative) and I’ve always felt my music has an abstraction to it, whether it be the sounds I use or how I flip samples. I hope you all will give this project a listen!” – Joeru

Teaadora – Blood Gold

Teaadora is a singer/songwriter from Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. Blood Gold is the follow-up cassingle to Teaadora’s 2013 full-length “Virgin Forever.” A slight departure from the very lo-fi recording style, but staying true to nature, Teaadora’s self-awareness pours through the poetic lyrics and beautifully hypnotizing vocals and ethereal instrumentation. The two tracks featured take on a more pop essence than much of Virgin Forever. This growth in performing and recording has not spared that lo-fi ethic completely., but the maturity is noted. The music is still haunting and minimal. The opening track, Perfect Love, is a very sentimental ballad that features the softly spoken lyrics of a somber nature. Contrasted with Blood Gold which takes on a more “full-band” approach with a nice drum beat that carries the song off into an inner depth of love and despair.

spazzkid – Desire 願う

After being on hiatus for almost a year (due to a lot of bicycle riding), I found that deep urge to make music again. Between Fall 2012 through Winter of 2013, I locked myself up in my bedroom everyday and toiled over recording and mixing songs that would eventually form this new album, “Desire.”

I really wanted “Desire” to have an eclectic sound to reflect the different sounds I’ve been listening to while recording the album. In particular, I found Bibio’s 2011 album, “Mind Bokeh” an inspiration in terms of eclecticism and wanted to achieve that same level of variety. I also found myself taking inspiration from a lot of my peers on soundcloud who make beats, post-dubstep, chillwave and techno tracks. I knew I wanted my sound to be very “electronic” but I also made it a point to sound warm, organic and imperfect.

Production-wise, I’d like to believe that this is my best sounding album yet. It has been a great learning process for me making this album. I found myself learning and re-learning new things in recording, mixing and mastering. I had always admired high production sounds but I also wanted the intimacy of a bedroom-produced album.

To preserve the lofi and gritty feel, most of the songs here were recorded in one-go. I also utilized home made percussions and field recordings. Sample sources include old tapes, youtube tutorials and j-pop. All of which were chopped and manipulated then rearranged to be come the backbone on most of these tracks.

Collaboration was also something I heavily pursued in this album: both musically and visually. I collaborated with Davao City’s (Philippines), Skymarines on “Candy Flavored Lips.” The look and feel of the album, which is a nod to the japanese aesthetic, was courtesy of the talented visual artist Krystal Perez and features Shanghai-based photographer and artist, Mang.

I did not have any working theme throughout the album but ended up making songs that I feel are somewhat connected to each other. “Desire” is a deeply emotional and personal album for me and I sincerely hope that you find something in here that you connect to. I invite you to listen to it and if you like it, you would pass it along to your friends and loved ones.

Trillminds – Audiobook 狼 Wolf

The 18 years young Beatmaker,Johnny Crooks published for the first time a mixtape under the name “Trillminds”. This mixtape contains different types of sounds and are again found in the genre “Hip-Hop”, “Electronic” until his own genre “MillTrinds”.

His music has been influenced by artists like Knxwledge, XXYYXX, Clams Casino, J Dilla and many other.

He sees in his music more than just the notes and the sounds.
He also sees his music as a kind of art and calls him self an Artist.

The “Audiobook 狼 Wolf ” is a project he has started to put into practice what he has learned within 1 year production and a big thank you to the many supports that were given to him.

He got the idea for this project, when he was walking through the forest one day.There he realized that he wants a natural atmosphere in his tracks and a sad , happy feeling vibe.

Every Track in this Tape has his own history and its own meaning.

The Audiobook series starts now with this Tape “Wolf”.

But why the name “Wolf” ?

-Because Wolves are majestic, free-spirited animals, who are very depressed person that no one understands.
And this feeling I wanted to give you in this Tape.

Son Of A Bricklayer – Out Of The Fire

From the eerie tone-setting introduction to the final beats drum slap – Out Of The Fire marks another masterpiece of Copenhagen’s Son Of A Bricklayer. The drumming is intricate, deliberate, and rolls at a steady tempo. The samples are create a fascinating backdrop, yet it is so nice to hear the upfront drum beats. Out Of The Fire presents a journey through Embers and Vapors – the burning movements like a flicker of a flame that bounce as the music gets heavy and dances at its breaks. The beautiful of Son Of A Bricklayer’s production is how he balances the album and intertwines the movements of soft and hard, the drums slam to a stop at just the right moment for the atmosphere or piano to come in and carry you faintly into the next movement. The skillful craftsman bridges Out Of The Fire like smoke lingering in the wind. Featuring artwork by Bethaniens Dust – conceptual box casing and light brown cassettes limited to 116 copies.

Also Available On: Limited to 116 light brown cassettes
