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.
What is immediately noticeable when you listen to Human Centerpiece’s debut album “Dormin” is the sheer amount of variety on the release. The texan producer has kept an open mind when it comes to genre, incorporating characteristics from a full spectrum of his music taste, rather than limiting it for continuity’s sake. However, despite this, “Dormin” is anything but lacking continuity. Human Centerpiece has kept it tightly woven together with attributes known only to him; a masterful control of dynamics and space, as well a hint of sweet, gloomy darkness.
A trip hop album with dark, cinematic elements, “Episodes” immediately evokes a dusty city vibe which Zesik deftly puts together using a complex mix of intense, hard drum breaks, distorted synths and vintage detuned pianos.
Aviary Bridge Records’ third seasonal compilation album, released on 25th May, again challenged their artist roster (as with the “Autumn” and “Winter” compilation releases). This time the brief was to use organic/natural sounds and instrumentation to celebrate the coming of Spring.
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.
