fabelThe Fabel sound is constantly morphing through stages. From the warmth and familiarity of a “wish you were here” family photo to the depths of an icy dubbed out dream were the lines are constantly blurring. Fabel’s latest album, Sinestesia takes you through the spectrum of his sonic world.

Hailing from Barcelona Spain, Fabel is a sonic storyteller and multi-instrumentalist, as prolific on the keys as he is on the bass. Sinestesia is full of Fabel’s signature electric piano solos and his complex baselines of labyrinth style funk. His production is a true fusion of raw live sound with modern detailed digital synth and percussion.

Accompanying Fabel on a few tracks is the lovely finesse of Dutch Harpist Anne Vanschothorst and the Bluesy Guitar of Barcelona’s Ian Currie.
Both are musicians Fabel has been jamming with over the last years, with many of those improvised elements have woven their way into the album. On songs like the majestic “Here once stood Elms” and spell bound down beat of “Where’s Mo”.

Sinestesia has many faces but there is logic to the journey, the listener is encapsulated in the mood bluesy atmosphere, leading you down a winding road of crafted electronica and around each bend to melancholy depths and ethereal highs.

mrechoBorn To Be Blue, a funky solo album from Mr Echo of Greek hip hop duo Q Funktion. Not that Mr Echo is totally on his own here … Born To Be Blue still features many collaborators, from Cold Busted regulars like Jenova 7, Es-K, My Neighbour Is, and mister T., to new names for the label such as Mononome, Padma Purana, and King Shi. Throughout the album there’s a common thread of downbeat American music styles, but it’s heavily frayed and pulled tight across world music influences. At times – such as on album highlights “Moonchild”, “Chrysanthemum”, and “Nothing Gonna Change” – Mr Echo finds himself pulling off Moby-level sampling, but in his own foggier and more heady way. Steadily creeping into the mood, the blues is ever present among the beats. Mr Echo and his Cold Busted companions have outdone themselves with this cohesive, but diverse, collaboration-filled album.

jorisvoornA name that shines brightly amongst the identities of electronic music innovators is the ever-progressing talent Joris Voorn. Almost a decade since his first LP (Future History - 2004), the cinematic overtones that have provided such tremendous warmth in all of his productions assemble beautifully for his third studio album “Nobody Knows”. With a sound both identifiable and individual Joris Voorn’s consistent caliber of work and attention to finely detailed production places him in a position of undoubted consideration amongst some of the most revered producers around.
Since 2009’s Balance14, a compilation mix CD that saw Joris masterfully knit together a staggering amount of tracks to critical acclaim, the Dutch producer and DJ may have spent as much of his career honoring his early techno influences as he has challenging them. While many a recent tech-house cut’s impact is more often a little out of proportion to its content, there's a continuing freedom in Joris Voorn’s productions and spacious song writing that defines what makes his music resonate way beyond the electronic world. Right from the moment go with the beat less introduction of “The Monk” the Amsterdam native provides a seamless fusion of organic and electronic sounds and despite an array of vocal features, the multilayered, classical ambiences throughout serve as a contrast reminder of who is at control of the mixing desk.
Through bright guitar, piano and synth combinations Voorn now has a wide range of instrumental talent at his disposal; the genius of creating music that’s by turn as adventurous and as sweetly accessible as a pop song. His last single release ‘Ringo’ was one of the biggest tracks on Beatport for 2013, with huge radio support. A euphoric modern classic and unquestionable highlight of “Nobody Knows”. “Momo”, with its simplistic, playful melodies is another standout personal addition to the album, its soothing and endearing touch unsurprisingly the result of a collaborative writing session between Joris and his father Joop Voorn. Thrillingly visceral through tracks including “The Wild” and “Sweets for Piano” the LP forms a soundscape equally as dark, captivating and inspirational that makes for a unique listening experience.
Even in collaborations, the acoustic subtleties that sit beneath the electric pressures in tracks like “A House” that features Ninja Tunes Kid A are remarkable, a challenging level of compromise for any musician, yet in his latest full length album, that also features amongst others Matthew Dear on his own “Green” imprint he has achieved an impressive harmonic balance, and the results are staggering.
