luckysunLucky Sun is the side project from London producer Tom Lown. Having had a string of deep house releases on labels including Lost My Dog, Savoir Faire Musique and UM Records, Lucky Sun now moves in a more leftfield musical direction.

The anchor of the EP is “Dreamin”, a mid-tempo affair that features the slightly quirky, crooner-ish vocal talent of the mysterious Troy Bolero. The main vocal floats above strings, melodic bleeps, and almost ethereal, harmonic backing vocals, giving the track a dreamy yet alternative feel. The track also gets an exquisite deep house treatment from Greenfish. The producer, well known for his releases on labels such as Ready Mix Records, Deep Clicks and UM Records, takes elements from the original and adds his trademark summery house music sound.

There are also two other superb Lucky Sun originals present on the EP. “Cycles” starts off as a moody percussive groover. It is then transformed and takes on a new feeling when the deep, warm chords come in, adding a splash of sun shine. And then there’s “Found”, equally deep and featuring a half-time, dub-style groove. With keys, pads, and a super deep sub-bass, this one takes the listener to another place.

amprosamericanThe American Professionals are a San Francisco power trio whose cleverly crafted songs of hope, love, guilt and fear are matched only by their beefy power chords, hooks and harmonies, For their first single since the January 2014 release of the LP We Make It Our Business, they brought on board Los Angeles remixer and electronic artist Van Scotti (alter-ego of Gregory Reeves/Cordovan) to bring “Sad Parade” a fresh yet retro vibe.

 

 

catriona welcome300Catriona Irving is a tiny, blonde singer/songwriter based in London. She knocked about for a couple of years pondering on what to do when she bought a guitar she couldn't afford; declaring it, not to customs, but as an incentive to try harder. And by jove she did. Her debut release was 'Running on Empathy', a limited 7 inch release on the artist-owned and run label she co-founded: Neednowater Records. Since followed by the Stitch EP and Sitting on the Shelf EP.
