Veteran electronic duo Arms and Sleepers — Mirza Ramic and Max Lewis — have carefully fine-tuned their woozy, meditative downtempo soundscapes during their 11-year history.
The twosome are about to release their new album, Find the Right Place. It’s sonic comfort for those of us who enjoy getting lost in emotive, atmospheric tracks. Factor in several fiery MC-fronted tracks and you’ve got your not-so-typical chill album. It’ll excite fans of Bonobo and DJ Shadow alike.
Listen to the album in its glorious entirety below. Be sure to pick it up when it’s released tomorrow via Berlin-based Pelagic Records.
Accomplished house producer Pablo Sánchez will drop his three-track Daydream EP via Hamburg’s hafendisko on April 13. Known for releasing dynamic tracks on Moodmusic, Apersonal, lovemonk, Neovinyl, Galaktika, and GAMM, the Caracas-born, Barcelona-based Sánchez never disappoints.
We’re thrilled to world premiere Pablo Bolivar’s remix of “Daydream,” a track you can really get lost in.
Bolivar, who is also based in Barcelona, has been on a winning streak, releasing phenomenal dance floor productions and remixes on Culprit and Sincopat, navigating his rising Seven Villas label to the incredible heights, and collaboratively exploring ambient, house and downtempo with German producer Joerg Schuster (a.k.a. Sensual Physics).
Hit the play button below and allow your mind to wander around Bolivar’s deep, melodic interpretation.
Wild Style Lion — Khan Of Finland, Philipp Virus and Boris Bergmann — had the good fortune of being invited to support indie-rock legends Dinosaur Jr. on their 2013 tour of Germany.During the trek frontman J Mascis introduced former Sonic Youth bassist Kim Gordon to the band in Berlin. The meeting with the post-punk visionary led to two tracks, “Lovewasinme” and “Grey Sedan,” on WSL’s self-titled 2015 debut. (Fun fact: Mascis appeared on album cut “No President.”)
Cut to 2018 and “Lovewasinme” has been remixed by Khan, who is the proprietor of Temple Traxx Records. The remix is set for a vinyl-only release on April 27. We’re pleased to world premiere the acid-house soaked remix and updated music video that’s awash with blood, wolves and people up strange things in a forest.
“I did this video for the original version of ‘Lovewasinme,’ a really dark fairy tale-ish ritual which ends in a surrealistic/psychedelic astral travel,” says Phillip Virus, who directed the video. “When Khan played me the remix version it was clear to remix the video as well myself. So I slowed down the footage to 66 percent and edited strobes in myself by the beat to get this hypnotic vibe the track got.”
UK-based electronica artist Nick “Tripswitch“ Brennan launched onedotsixtwo, a sub-label of his eclectic Section Records, last year. From the get-go he delivered In At The Deep End, a 23-track two-disc compendium featuring tracks from a fine selection of like-minded musical spirits, and hasn’t looked back.
After recently issuing “Voight Kampff” with Nick Warren, Brennan’s imprint is set to unveil Luka Sambe & Filter Bear‘s “Birds Of The Ravine.” The cut is a wonderful collaborative track from a pair of up-and-coming Aussie producers who happen to be childhood friends.
In addition to the track’s original version, both producers offer their own take on the prog-house track. We’re extremely pleased to world premiere Filter Bear’s evocative remix that’s overflowing with melody and soul.
“This remix was a bit of a challenge, as my personal style is already quite melodic,” says Filter Bear. “In this case the original already had a highly emotive theme, so I set out to slow things down to a more granular and ‘lazy’ level, really maximizing the existing beauty of the original elements. I wanted to create a fresh interpretation of the groove by adding a new bassline, giving the track some energy and drama at the low end to compliment the booming chords and numerous melodies at the top.”
