Coming in with a whopping twenty-one tracks, Jakata’s album “The Drive In” has a curiously eclectic soundscape, transporting the listener into various realities through it’s duration. Although the tracks are anchored down by classic hip-hop beats, it’s “The Drive In”’s other qualities that set it apart from the rest.
Padma Purana’s first EP release via Aviary Bridge Records, “Blur”, is an intricate, organic and emotive work of art. By combining the hard hits of trip hop drums with cascading instrumentals, the greek producer creates a gorgeous juxtaposition between these two characteristics, resulting in a dark yet mystical aesthetic.
Upon listening to Elleodin’s debut EP “Iridescent”, one can almost see the colours and imagine the smells of the dreamscapes Elleodin has created. Largely fuelled by her sound-colour synesthesia, each track has a unique atmosphere saturated in floaty synths and organic instruments. Accompanied by instances of her vocals, bass guitar and recordings, and through various techniques and experimentation, the result is five tracks that wildly differentiate from each other and yet fit beautifully together.
Roshi’s first album release with Aviary Bridge Records is an evolving and boundless project which explores various sectors of the electronic music scene. An album filled with contrasts, “Cold Summer” is indeed an apt description for the release. In the background, nostalgic summery vibes combine with gentle icy ambience. In the foreground, organic instruments gently play alongside aggressive synthesised basses. One of “Cold Summer”’s most notable characteristics is it’s spaciousness; this is an album that should be listened to on headphones for the full intended experience.
Ethereal, spacious and heavily emotive, LeVirya’s EP “I’m Right Here” was written for his mother, who sadly passed away on the 1st of April after a long fight against cancer. A direct link to Permentier’s headspace at the time, “I’m Right Here” explores the ebbs and flows of the feelings that come from having to say goodbye to someone you love. For this emotionally charged EP, LeVirya is joined by Garot Michael Conklin, who brings out this release’s sentimental vibes with his sublime trumpet solos.
Sampladelic’s first album release with us at Aviary Bridge Records, suitably named “Frankenstein’s Monster”, is an absolute sound collage of an album. Much like Frankenstein’s monster himself, the parts that make up Sampladelic’s album are chaotically thrown together, and yet the end result seamlessly makes for an eclectic and eccentric listen. This is an album which has the vibe of being an absolute joy to make. Freeing and experimental, yet masterfully put together.
Those who know of Paul Wilbury’s methods know that with each release, the Spanish producer makes a conscious effort to implement a new approach to the way he crafts his beats. His latest project “WLBRY.SESSION-1” is no different and is the first of a brand new series of tapes by Paul Wilbury titled “WLBRY.SESSION-X”.
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.
