Chances are that the new album "Surfaces" by Barcelona based producer Boliden will be one of the most beautiful albums released this year. More importantly than that though, it is an album which gets deeper with each listen, placing it well outside any simple genre or vibe categorisation.
Ladies and gentlemen, today we are delighted to announce our stage partnership with Peckham Rye Music Festival at Copeland Park, which'll take place from the 12th to the 14th of May. Till the veil is lifted on the festival's lineup, we'll keep on the hush but what we can tell is you won't be disappointed. Trust us to bring the heat!
Following his debut release on Meda Fury in 2015, Tokyo-based producer Ryota OPP returns with his debut full-length 'Pale Lux'. We caught up with Ryota for a quick-fire chat as he selected some personal pictures and transformed each track from the album into haiku to better capture the mood and essence of his compositions.
New year, new purpose and we resume our archive mix series with Field Recordings on Mixcloud. This week sees shadowy Dutch collective ESHU at the reigns - their mix heads straight down into trip-hop, laid back hip-hop grooves, classic dub, soul and funk. Everything you could want to ease you in after sessions of excess over the past few weeks.
If you've heard Basses Terres' excellent debut EP for BFDM, 'A Darker Rain', you've certainly noticed his lean for finespun atmospherics and full-on cinematic deep audio-scenarios. Yet more pared-down and essential, his second instalment for the Lyon-based imprint exalts some of the most transcending ambient we've had the chance to hear in quite a long time.
