A fresh record label based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and London, United Kingdom.
Nomenclature (aka Espen Skagen) started experimenting with musical instruments aged nine and was producing his own music by fourteen, eventually leading to a career in the film industry as both a filmmaker and composer. Naturally, his music is heavily inspired by producers like Jon Hopkins, Burial, Nils Frahm and Jamie. Favouring the sounds of trip hop, trap and synth pop, he textures his music with a combination of heavy beats and bittersweet melodies .
A little over one year ago now we released 'The Dream' by Electronic Dream Foundation. We had always planned for the well received album to have some sort of deluxe version, but now we present to you something even better: a new remix album complete with raw demo versions of Arise and Pulse.
As we did for Autumn, we challenged our current roster of artists to create a track for Winter. This time the tracks have been inspired by a picture of the Northern Lights, with an aim to capture the feeling of being in awe of nature's madjesty.
An album which captures the nostalgia and reflection that rolls in with the first signs of autumn. We challenged our current roster of artists to come up with a lofi hip hop track which captures an autumnal feeling based on the image used for the album artwork.
Each track on Climate’s debut EP ‘Silk Road’ is artfully choreographed to capture the feeling of travelling along the Silk Road. Like one of the many routes of the Silk Road itself, the EP begins with a carefree afternoon in China, and later ends with our traveller crossing the border into India.
Although we are constantly communicating, Leon and I rarely see each other face to face as I live in the UK and he lives The Netherlands. However, last month we spent a few days together to discuss some changes to Aviary Bridge Records.
The most suitable way to describe Elleodin’s single ‘Lena’ would be as ‘abstract’ electronica. This strange track pushes the boundaries of sub-genres within electronic music, making Lena worth a listen even if just for the sake of curiosity.
Desire is a highly emotive album with a mysterious, thought-provoking narrative. Archer has combined old with new by infusing ambient synths and atmospheres with trap beats, reminiscent of the days when he produced this contrasting side of electronic music. With haunting vocals and gentle pianos, Desire will capture your imagination, and there’s a strong chance you’ll lose yourself there.
It’s been a crazy few weeks for us with loads of good stuff going on (more on that below!) but we wanted to open this newsletter with this: we are thrilled to announce that we have a brand new logo ready to be implemented. We felt that the current logo was due for an update. Our new logo really lines up with what we are all about. So, here it is! We hope you like it as much as we do :)
Little over a month ago we organised a remix contest for a couple of tracks from the Daydreaming album by Safe Place. Along the way we received a few emails from remixers who stated that the tracks were so good that they found it hard to come up with something new without damaging the originals.
A remix competition featuring 'Happy', Friends' and 'Delicate' from Safe Place's spellbinding album 'Daydreaming'.
Upon listening to ‘Daydreaming’ you may find you completely lose yourself to the atmosphere in which Safe Place creates. Painted in various hues of golden yellows and frozen blues, the carefully crafted textures and gentle synths throughout this album play like a cold summer breeze; full of the nostalgic scents of a world in full bloom.
