Sommer’s first EP release on Aviary Bridge Records is short, but heartbreakingly sweet. Comprising of two tracks, 1. “Last Embrace” and 2. “Without you”, the melancholy mood of “Obsession” epitomises the subject of the songs, “love and loss”.
An EP written during the quiet hours between midnight and dawn after Mayaewk’s gigs in Japan, “Konbini” (AKA a convenience store) is an ode to the place that offered Mayaewk food, cigarettes and comfort when nowhere else was open. Heavily inspired by the Japanese vinyl he had been purchasing and listening to at the time, this particular EP is unique in the way it so clearly offers a slice of Mayaewk’s experience in Tokyo.
After the release of his single “West Coast Lights” last autumn, ChasBeats has returned to grace us with his full length album “Dusty Memories”, a project which, packed full of chilled out soulful beats and gorgeous imagery, concentrates just as much on visuals as it does on audio.
After bringing out his extraordinary debut album “Episodes", Zesik yet again hits the ground running with his second body of work “Terra Incognita”. Known his hard drum breaks, dusty instrumentals and the conceptual nature of his music, Zesik has produced an EP which embodies dark trip hop with cinematic elements, balanced out with the haunting warmth of Zesik’s jazzier side.
Just over a year after his debut EP, Sro has once again graced us with his abstract, unpredictable and somewhat bizarre productions in the form of “Wot”, his first full album released via Aviary Bridge Records. Get ready to be transported into another dimension - with psychedelic beats and dreamy ambiences, Sro is taking us on another ride into the strange complexities of the subconscious.
LeVirya’s highly anticipated album “Late Night Espresso” is, in LeVirya’s words “an ode to lo-fi hip hop, cassette tape culture and coffee.” However, to claim this release is merely coffee themed would be to ignore the nuanced complexities throughout the album. With a known talent in capturing subtle emotions, LeVirya has, in a way, produced an album which functions as a “coffee break diary”. Each song offers a glimpse of the Dutch producer’s mindset and mood that day, coffee in hand.
