Different Sleep :: Conflict EP

Different SleepConflict EP” // Label: Friends of Friends Music // Released 22 April 2014.

“The Conflict EP is a testament to the concept of heartache resulting in the creation of ideas that could only be evoked during emotional turmoil. When you’ve invested so much time and energy into someone and you have to watch them go, you feel wasted, torn apart, barely attached by the shreds of memories that remain. These are the times when you feel the most susceptible to your darkest thoughts.

Even though these times of your life may be the most difficult, there is something beautiful captured within these moments of struggle.”

Subzar :: Pico

SubzarPico” // Self-released // Released 16 December 2013 // Artwork: Marie Boucomont.

“There are those who go in search of questions, but don’t seek answers. Some focus on destination, others departure.

And so they wander, away from their home…

Modern compositional acoustic quartet, subzar, present a new work that takes up the theme of flight from the close of 2012’s ‘i am not yet here’. ‘pico’ conveys a migratory journey by a flock of birds, and is a deviation from the first EP’s story. Its four distinct movements chronicle the triumphs and travails of the birds’ journey, from the liberation of take-off through the serenity above the clouds to the terror of an oncoming storm.”

Kae Uh :: Keep Forgetting EP

Kae UhKeep Forgetting EP” // Soigne Tes Oreilles // Rel. 31 Mar. 2014 // Art: Theo Petroni.

Kae Uh, our rookie from Los Angeles, has created an EP that nicely represents his new American style. His music is a mixture of trap with rap vocals, intricate hi-hats and constantly evolving Garage rhythms. It’s like riding along an ocean of rhythms in a convertible. Ozaka got into the convertible to deliver his own remix, accelerating the speed as his atmospheric tune carries us away. Ryuei Kotoge envelops us in a soundscape, ready for another trip, taking you through a mesmerizing, energetic, Japanese cityscape.”

Kaito aka Hiroshi Watanabe :: Isolatedmix 44 // Mar. 2014

Hiroshi Watanabe has been releasing records since 1996, with styles ranging from deep house to his more recognized ambient/electronica works on Kompakt under the guise of Kaito. A stalwart for the label for the past twelve years, Hiroshi has clocked up no less than eight albums and recently released the rather brilliant “Less Time Until The End”.

His passion for introspective electronic music is clearly visible in his latest release and his Kaito moniker is seemingly dedicated to this emotional side. Named after his son and translating as “the one that is able to explain the universe”, Kaito’s music is warm, analogue and immersive electronica, riddled with a million stories. Hiroshi’s a big believer in communicating through his music and opens up to the many ways a track can be perceived- he’s a storyteller, a painter of the night sky and the magician behind the soundtrack which accompanies them.

Hiroshi’s isolatedmix stems from this approach and takes us on a night-flight through some of his inspirations that span the spectrum of the ambient electronic genre – a perfect introduction to the newbie or an expertly curated accompaniment for the veteran. Hiroshi will be the guide, but you’ll make your own way there…”
