KUF - Universe

Nov 22, 2017 MACROM55LPKUF create emotion-laden dialogues across layers of time and dimensions of sound. Voices recorded in private are chopped up and brought out center-stage to sing with beats hammered out right here and now. Glowing synths push forward. Basslines rise to grab the melodic role of a track while a vowel is truncated and locked into a grid, driving the rhythm. Voices move within the frame of a sample, performed by hands pushing keys, guided by the ear, immersed in a trio session’s deep flow… A vortex of quirky hands, responsive ears and glowing circuits. Since Thomas A.Read the whole story

The duo are one of the most booked live acts worldwide, commanding a huge fan base.

The Cyclist - Sapa Inca Delirium (2LP+Download)

Oct 24, 2017
hypeple10Having given us a taster of things to come back in September 2016, with the ‘Pressing Matters’ single, The Cyclist returns to Hypercolour with a brand new, full length album. And as the title suggests, “Sapa Inca Delirium” leans heavily on South American mysticism, not just musically, but in the visual imagery that the eleven-track album paints so well across its various tempos and rhythms. From the tropical burst of mood setting opener, “Go Back” to the steamy and pacey percussive flow of “Inhale/Exhale” which features regular

Aris Kindt - Swann And Odette

Oct 24, 2017
kds001lpAmbient shoegaze duo Aris Kindt launch the new Kingdoms imprint with their second album, Swann and Odette. Picking up where their first record (2015’s Floods) leaves off, Swann and Odette is an evolutionary leap forward for the duo. The sonic palette is deeper, the grooves more sparse and the melodies are given more room to seep deep within a mix so expansive it feels almost tactile. This is heady, opulent stuff. The album is immaculately produced and cunningly arranged to sidestep easy classification while not sacrificing accessibility and authentic feeling. Aris

Raphael Danilo Feat. George Pappos — “Strangers, Nikkname, Innellea Rmxs” on PAULS MUSIQUE / FREERIDE MILLENIUM

DJ: “XLR8R: The EP lands with an original cut, titled "Strangers," and two remixes from German pair Innellea and Cologne artist Nikkname, both of whom flip the cut into enchanting interpretations. Danilo and Pappos' original takes cues from their home area on the edges of the Greek mountain Parnassos and the ancient sanctuary of Delphi and all three cuts focus on the stunning sound design and spiritual synth work from the Greek producers. Amevicious (La dame Noir / Nein / Blindetonation / Play Pal/ The Exquisite Pai) 'Un cool single mais trop different pour intégré mon dj set' Juan Soto (Nang / Electrique) 'what a beauty thanks a lot for this Raphael and George <3 This is something to contemplate with your eyes closed and allow your mind to go away for nearly 9 minutes into a deep introspective journey... ' Duncan Gray (Tici Taci) 'I'll be giving the Innellea remix a try, thank you!' Somerville & Wilson (Hell Yeah / ISM) 'Beautiful piece of electronic music! The Original does it the most for us. S&W' Chloe (Live At Robert Johnson / BPitch Control) 'Nice Innella remix' Paul Bonomo (Snax) 'Like the original best. Nickname Remix is also sweet. Cheers.' Patrick Vidal 'Innellea remix will be nice on the dance floor' Billy Scurry (Dublin) 'Good production and vibe' Alexander Robotnik (Hot Elephant Music) 'Innellea Remix for me' James Teej (Rekids) 'nice release, interesting soundscapes, liking the nikkname remix the best, nice odd vibes' Neil Scott (El Diablo Social Club) 'cool ep. really diggin the nikkname remix' Pulp Disco and The Outcasts (Her Majesty's Ship, Correspondant, La Dame Noir) 'Love the original and Nickname remix. Thanks!' Bruno (Xinobi (Discotexas)) 'Love it! every version.' Sean Johnston (Hardway Bros, A Love From Outer Space, Disco Bloodbath) 'Very deep, late nite gear!'
