Break Through Artists

deecrellKlavier Editionen is the significant new album by Dee C’rell, which explores the elements between electronic music and contemporary jazz piano. Known throughout the world as one of the leading exponents of such music making practices, it has been sometime since Dee returned to his musical roots. In conjunction with the prestigious piano making company Bechstein from Germany, Dee has composed a collection of compositions that entwine within each other, fusing a concept as much as an album.

The minimal understated piano playing is infused with rhythmic looping that is influenced from his years of studying and performing Gamelan music, and his evocative use of electronic music making practices, coincides to establish a musical characteristic that is very much associated to Dee C’rell and his visualization of contemporary electronic music.

cleliafelixlogoClelia Felix returns to us with a deep mix of beautiful tracks called "Ultimate Guide to Chillout".  Tracks include:

All Alone (Deep Mix)

Baby It's Alright (featured on Below Zero)

Find Your Way

I Got a Feeling


Look for other Clelia Felix releases such as: "With Your Love" and "Nuages Bleus".  She has also recently remixed a "chillout" version of the track "If..!" by Jean-Michel Jarre & Little Boots.

She hails from France and is a composer and songwriter.  She started to take classical piano at the early age of seven and hasn't stopped producing music since.  Her songs are a combination of pop/folk along with a blend of electro down-tempo in the arrangements and melodies.  Clelia creates smooth vibes and her choice of acoustic, electronic and ethnic styles gives her a unique signature sound.

She has released two albums and two E.P.s, and she has appeared on well-known compilations such as Cafe del Mar vol.14, Klassik Lounge werk 6, Cafe Buddha, and Cafe Solaire vol.13.  She now shares with us her new track, "Don't Walk Away" which is our favorite so far in all that she has shared with us here at Below Zero.  It immediately hit the BZ Top 10 premiering at #6.

hvobElectronic duo HVOB's third album is a collaboration with Winston Marshall.  HVOB's second album Trialog (2015) was accompanied by a succession of international dates and sell-out performances on all six continents – including Burning Man Festival, Womb in Tokyo, the Great Wall of China, Melbourne Music Week, a concert at ARTE Festival in Paris and their own Boiler Room event in Vienna.  The producer duo are now set to release their third album; Silk. It is due on March 24 and the first single, The Blame Game, on February 3. This is the first time HVOB have collaborated on an album: Paul Wallner and Anna Müller have written and produced the songs on "Silk" together with Winston Marshall, and the result of the collaboration with the London-based artist is a new and darker HVOB sound. The collaboration goes beyond production of the new album to include a joint tour: starting in April, HVOB and Winston Marshall will be taking their own light and visual show to 15 European cities.  Silk is the first album to be released on HVOB's own new label Tragen Records.

return mistertThe Return Of The Classic is the return of Greek beatmaster Mister T. to the Cold Busted label, and he certainly explores a classic sound. Based in Athens, Greece, Mister T. has long been transmitting the jazzier side of downtempo hip hop, with top notch jams that are soulful, swinging, and undeniably funky. This album is the latest in a string of Mister T. collections on Cold Busted … as prolific as Mister T. is, his quality never falters and the tunes don’t disappoint.

The Return Of The Classic contains a multitude of magical dance floor moments, including the bluesy skank of “Break My Back”, the breakdance funk of “Put The Needle On”, the high energy horn section groove of “Elephant”, and the title track’s shuffling big beat and stew of crafty samples. The Return Of The Classic has beats and funk for days, with Mister T. delivering a beloved old school sound to today’s jazzbos. Hold on tight!
