David Douglas – Spectators of the Universe

David Douglas’ Spectators of the Universe takes you to a place where the localness matters as much of the sum of everything.

RUMTUM – Mora Tuga

“Within “Mora Tuga”, RUMTUM creates an experience of deep textured beats using himself as the sample source. Using haunting chants, woodwinds, percussion, guitars and synthesizers he layers sounds that conjure a sort of fog that lingers somewhere off in the distance. Welcome to the rainforest on another planet, where beautifully emotive instrumental compositions head-knod as easy as they thought provoke. Much like his print making and illustration work, RUMTUM’s music can be revisited again and again to find new moments of interest and inspiration.”

Bastien Keb – 22.02.85

‘22.02.85’ is the new album from Bastien Keb. Initially conceived as a concept album about a stripper lost in the city (like a straight-to-video follow up to Showgirls), ‘22.02.85’ has a distinctly nocturnal edge to it. The city at night, lost in a crowd, abandoned petrol stations, empty kebab shops, broken florescent lights. Like a half-forgotten dream, familiar yet unnerving.

A guitarist first and foremost, Keb also plays trumpet, bass, drums, piano, flute and more – many borrowed donated or found instruments.
