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.

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.
