silentriderSilent Rider is an electronic downtempo band hailing from Brooklyn, New York. Made up of Reed Kackley, Aaron Goodrich and Ryan Payne, this trio releases it's first single with the same name of their new EP, 'Rave Love'.

anukaiarunAnukai Arun is a natural. It is rare in todays contemporary musical climate to find both a natural talent and a unique vocal stylist and interpereter. Anukai has developed a vocal style that is free from the confines and limitations of language, equipped with an un-equalled emotional range, leaving all who encounter her performances deeply moved and Mesmorised

The music of the “Klangwelten für die Seele” (sounds for the soul) by Andy Eicher and Wolfgang Tejral is the perfect base for Anukai Arun and her art of singing. Based on loops with harmonic chords they change the arrangement with every loop just enough to keep the musical effect subconcious. In this music you might find elements of different styles but in a very distinct way.

GOASTT Web BannerThe GOASTT is two people, Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. It is, in itself, a chimera; a fabulous creature made with parts of two distinctly different creatures. It is also an acronym, as you might guess from its being capitalized like that. By virtue of being a friend to, and fan of, both the zygotes in this organism, I know what its letters stand for, but it's not mine to reveal. I expect they will do so at some future point.

Having driven my Ducati to Sean and Kemp's house through the darkened October streets of 4 am New York to type these words, I realize the absurdity of my task. If I wrote a novel and gave its protagonists stories of origin like the ones from which the two parts of GOASTT arose, people would say I was a fabulist in need of a hyperboectomy. Or an artless sophomore. But life is allowed a liberty with plotlines that novelists are not.

lustralWhen British producers Ricky Simmonds and Steve Jones joined together to form Lustral, they started a partnership that would last for over fifteen years. Banking on genuine musicality and inspired concepts, the duo saw club and chart success with their very first record: ‘Everytime’ featuring Tracy Ackerman. That was in 1997, and the duo have made waves under a handful of influential aliases since their inception.

After a string of exceptional releases, Lustral return once again in 2014 for the release of their latest album: ‘Empathy’. Coming four years after their last creation, ‘Empathy’ reflects the time, care, and dedication needed to produce a record of substance. This is the kind of record you can look back on and be proud of, decades down the road.
