atjazzAtjazz is a staple in the house community and we felt it important to focus on the release of "Story" that launched this renowed producer, remixer and DJ's career of good soulful and chilled beats.

From his misspent youth, boarding the frontier towns of Northern England, Martin Iveson arrived on the Derby scene in the early nineties, landing a job at a shiny new computer games studio by the name of Core Design, now synonymous with Lara Croft and Tomb Raider.

Not content with scoring this, one of the worlds biggest video games, Martin left 13 years later to create his own studio environment in which to channel his musical aspirations, and invite other musicians to do the same. The result was Atjazz and his vinyl debut was ‘Story’ released through his then newly forged label ‘Mantis Recordings’.

atjazz_storyThe success of ‘Story’ led to ‘That Something’ his debut album released through DIY Diversion, licensed by irma recorrds Italy, and Sony/Kioon Japan. With two further albums, ‘Labfunk’ and ‘labresults’ following soon after, Atjazz was established as an distinct and inspirational voice in the underground music scene.

discobuildersAniligiital Music presents The Disco Builders, a new San Francisco band produced by Tal M. Klein featuring the lovely vocals of Hillary Hightower. The band’s sound celebrates the Roland Alpha Juno 1 keyboard, a mainstay of the post-orchestral disco sound.

"Don’t Look Back" is a heavy vocal jam that melds elements from disco, funk, rock and even reggae to bring together a killer groove.  We have featured the original track on the show, but there have also been some great remixes such as Australian producer Omegaman raising the BPM and rubs the chorus down with a deep electro disco flavor. Next, The Hardway Brothers take "Don’t Look Back" into outer space for some serious dubbed-out heady disco action.

Keep an eye out for more amazing work from "The Disco Builders".

ielo2012Ielo (pronounced iyelo), is a producer, musician & songwriter based in Paris.  He started learning piano in classic music school at the age of six. Since then, music has become more than a passion. Music has developed a meaning: life!

Iëlo Phonic is such a great musician and inspiration. Iëlo is like a Brother form another Mother to me. His music and my Levphonic persona are very similar in sound. He has a new release that is available on iTunes. "Soleil d'Hiver" is the title of his EP and "Solaris" is a really great track from "Soleil d'Hiver". Show your support for a true musical talent!


The uniqueness of this artist is that he is not simply focusing on one particular music style. Iëlo produces downtempo, new jazz, new soul, chill out, deep house, dub and ambient.  His sound parts are a micro universe where the music and the voice play ambiguity between reality and out of time fiction. Each track is created to inspire us to enjoy and explore every next day in life!

Ielo has been featured on over two dozen compilations including Below Zero's MINUS 1.  He now returns with his latest single, "Into You" that features Eleana.

weatherpendingWeather Pending is a San Francisco band that creates deep, sultry and continously unfolding music with an electronic edge.  They have just released their first album titled, "And How!"  Featuring the vocals of Janie Oliver, the production and bass of Rob Cross and the guitar of Brian Bloi, this trio delivers melancholy rhythms and soft relaxing tones.

"We all come from different backgrounds," Oliver says. "I'm influenced by the theater, studied classical music, and sang a lot of jazz. Rob is a great producer and loves dub, reggae and hip hop. Brian's lived in Nashville, Miami, and France. He's a musical gypsy with a cinematic approach to guitar. We're trying to avoid formulas and let the music unfold with an honest, uplifting message."

"And How!" is a group effort, a mix of home recordings and studio work, assembled by Cross at Broken Radio Studios in San Francisco. Our exclusive feature on Below Zero is "Sunlight Fair" which is a hip hop samba with an affecting multi-tracked vocal, sustained single note swells, like that of a steel guitar from Bloi that suggest crying and Cross's swooping bass lines.
