Premiere: All Hail The Silence – Daggers (BTS Video)

All-Hail-The-Silence

We couldn’t start off 2019 with a better world premiere.

Famed electronic music pioneer Brian “BT” Transeau and veteran British singer-songwriter Christian Burns, of English pop group BBMAK, joined forces a while back to form All Hail The Silence. The result of their musical union is the duo’s 14-track album, Daggers (KSS3TE Recordings), out on January 18.

What’s notable is that no computers were used during the recording process. Instead, the pair utilized sequencers and modular/analog synthesizers to bring their songs to life.

We’re thrilled to present the behind-the-scenes video for Daggers ahead of the album’s release. In this captivating nine-minute clip, BT and Christian explain how the project came together and the significance of the album’s title — all while playing and fiddling with assorted weapons in their droolworthy synth arsenal.

Says Fraze on the ethos behind his latest masterwork: “I enjoy taking people on a journey through music and the Deep & Dark EP will do just that.

Premiere: Jeremie Whistler – Smoke Signals (Louise Roam Remix)

Jeremie Whistler

Leftfield Parisian electronic singer/songwriter/producer Jeremie Whistler’s star has been on the rise since he released the well-received Flakes EP, co-produced with Angelo Foley (Christine & The Queens) and Apollo Noir (Tigersushi), in 2014.

His latest offering “Seven Seas” forms a prelude to the chapters that follow in his upcoming debut album, The Dawn, due in 2019.

Ahead of the album’s release Whistler has tapped electro-popper Louise Roam to remix his new song “Smoke Signals,” which we’re pleased to world premiere.

Says Whistler of his fellow Parisian’s remix: “I thought of Louise for a remix because I fell in love with her song ‘The March.’ Her style is pretty similar to mine but she took the track somewhere else. She did such an amazing work; I was very surprised that she used her voice in the remix and how perfectly it works with mine.”

Premiere: SK Shlomo – The First Time (Lost Raven Remix)

SK Shlomo

Working under his SK Shlomo alias, Simon Shlomo Kahn is an impressive singer-songwriter, beatboxer, producer and live looping technologist based in London. His lengthy list of accomplishments includes recording with Björk to playing the main stage at Glastonbury.

Khan’s upcoming fan-funded debut album, Surrender, due in March 2019is a deeply personal record where he opens up about his struggles with depression and PTSD. The full-length’s introspective second single, “The First Time,” has been remixed by Nebula Productions label boss Lost Raven, who reimagines the song through the lens of ’90s UK garage.

We’re thrilled to world premiere the red-hot remix that’s brimming with deep basslines, shuffling beats and atmospherics à la genre godfathers Double 99, 187 Lockdown and Artful Dodger.

Says Kahn of the remix, “I love how Lost Raven has preserved the meaning and emotions of this really personal song but at the same time has given it an old-skool speed garage party vibe. I can’t wait to play this out, it’s going to go off!”
