Europaweite Aussichten :: Night Sequences

Europaweite AussichtenNight Sequences” ★ Self-released ★ Released 01 Sept. 2016 ★

German-based synthwave artist Europaweite Aussichten is back with ALL NEW music!

Night Sequences” is his third EP, featuring seven brand new original tracks including the lead single “Chroma” and one collaboration with French-based synthwave mastermind Speed Machine!
The EP continues the sonic journey of Europaweite Aussichten’s latest record “Purgatory” which was released last year on Werkstatt Recordings. It’s cold and dark but beautiful atmosphere makes this new release a very dream-like experience. There’s a lot of 80’s nostalgia and love for analog sounds. All tracks were recorded on an old BASF Chrome Maxima II tape.

Picture yourself as a kid, watching a bunch of movies on TV or VHS at night.

DayKoda :: Sleeping Awake

DayKodaSleeping Awake” ★ Label: Insight Music ★ Released 11 July 2016 ★

DayKoda was born by the wish to express willing, words and emotions through the introspective world of electronic music. Dark textures, downtempo, acid jazz and lo-fi strongly influenced by hip hop and “Beat Music”: this is DayKoda, solo project created by 20 year old Andrea Gamba, which is built upon layers of field recordings, acoustic stratification, arp sounds, shaker and loop grooves.

In DayKoda’s music you can find the desire to develop music with colours and special sounds, giving it a very personal, emotive form which brings listeners in a continuous emotional growing, moving on to another, possible, futuristic world.
