many reasons

With a resumé of tracks that run the gamut from minimal to house issued on top labels including Minus, Phobiq, Saved, SCI+TEC and MB Elektronics, Italian duo Many Reasons (a.k.a. MiniCoolBoyz) are about to take a monumental step forward in their career with the upcoming release of their with flawless Obsessed debut EP effort for Carl Cox’s Intec.

We’re thrilled to world premiere the title track from Michele and Raffaele’s latest and greatest release.

“Obsessed” is a moody, tough-as-nails banger that’s tailor-made for dimly lit rooms with Funktion-One systems. It’s a tense soundscape complete with a pounding kick drum, looped vocal, squiggly synths and cracking hi-hats. Pure class.

Get a first listen below to “Obsessed” and be sure to check out the full release on June 29.

Premiere: Get a First Listen to Ambient Gem “Winterfold” Gagarin’s Return

GAGARIN

Graham “Dids” Dowdall, a musical journeyman who has played with Nico, collaborated with John Cale, Ludus, Eric Random, Suns of Arqa, Band of Holy Jo and Low Bias, and is a member of avant rock legends Pere Ubu and duo Roshi featuring Pars Radio, recently issued Corvid Remixes, a stunning remix EP, under his Gagarin solo alias.

We’re pleased to world premiere “Winterfold Gagarin’s Return,” a bonus track not found on his latest effort.

“‘Winterfold’ is a rework of a track originally commissioned as part of a sound project based on 5 hills in Surrey,” Dowdall told us last year about the album version of the song.

“This hill is called Winterfold and the track features recordings of sounds from the top this wooded hill which I visited one evening in June. Whilst there a thunderstorm arrived though no rain fell as I walked. In this rework I’ve tried to capture the atmosphere of being high above the flat plain of southern Surrey and Sussex. All percussive sounds were generated by hitting twigs, branches and trees.”

Premiere: Dedo – Chaman/WiFi EP

dedo

Buenos Aires up-and-comer Joaquín Bartolomé Otero Sojo produces music and gets by with a little help from his friends.

With the ability to play several instruments, he slowly gravitated toward electronic music like a moth to a flame. Eventually he found a way to bridge the gap between both musical worlds in the form of Dedo, a project he fronts featuring a coterie of local musicians from his city’s underground music scene.

We’re pleased to world premiere Dedo’s Chaman/WiFi EP. It’s a gorgeous, meditative two-track debut effort that’s directly informed by jam sessions held in 2017 with several of his talented homies.

The EP’s special sauce lies in the way both cuts draw inspiration from electro-Andean music movement, which merges local indigenous sounds native to Latin America with digital processes. Get a first listen below and enjoy.
