Banco De Gaia, Ian Urbina – My Little Country (Spotify)

“A classic buildup of arpeggiators opens the vibe. The mid-tempo techno vibe takes over and grabs you along for the journey. Strings appear and you want more. ”

-Nagamag.com

Artist shared few words behind his song inspiration with Nagamag:

"I often work with field recordings but generally in abstract ways where the shape and texture of the sound is more important than its general context or meaning. For this project in particular, it is the meaning of what you are hearing that matters — the mood created by the sonic environment and the message of the words being spoken. One person stating a fact is less convincing than witnessing the reality, even if it’s indirectly.

I’ve always loved the sea, both being in it and on it. I’ve spent many happy days diving, snorkeling and being among sea creatures in their environment, and I value aquatic life as highly as I do life on land. Thus it saddens me to learn of the extent to which marine life is treated as nothing more than a resource to exploit, with no concern for what is impacted in the process. This project spurred me to not be complicit in this exploitation, and to instead call it out when I see it." - Banco de Gaia

Marc-E – Brahman (Spotify)

“ At times it is not easy to interpret the enigmatic internal journey. Brehman by Marc-e opens us up musically into spiritual worlds that engage with rhythm. Whale language and sacred geometry flow through this track like a comet visiting a new Galaxy. Soothing and organic drum overtones that climax with smooth guitar riffs, welcoming to the sacred space of sound design. ”

Misaïdu – Full Scale Sf Action (Spotify)

“Misaidu offer a generous mix of exclusively electronic sounds. Experimenting with Psydub ideas and some Chill out elements, "Full Scale SF Action" has come to feed our imagination. The variety of wave vibrations is remarkable and every second seems unpredictable too!”

-Nagamag.com

Full Scale SF Action is a breakbeat single that leads the listener into a futuristic atmosphere. It combines synthesizer, rhodes and zither samples, kicked by an heavy rhythmic section ! The track is built as a journey that ends with an overing last part.

Misaïdu

A fraternal duo created by Thomas and Nicolas Beau, Misaidu stands out with its hybrid music. Through "Tiger Lily" and "How To Change", featured on U.BABA Vol.1, and a single titled "Half Light", we discover a generous and powerful sound, with multiple influences, sonorities and textures. This is no accident.

On the influences side of things, both brothers have bathed into the CDs, cassettes or vinyls of their parents. Quickly, they became independent music lovers and soaked up many genres ranging from hip hop to metal, from house to jazz and IDM.

The variety of processes sculpts the landscape of Misaidu’s music. The duo mixes sampling, analog and digital synthesis, drum machines and acoustic instruments such as bass or piano. The result is a colorful and bewitching electronic music and the duo wishes first and foremost to share their emotions and love for electronic music.

Hypnotic Peafowl – The Mind Box (Spotify)

“One more special track from Hypnotic Peafowl & Bendja in slow bpm and Psydub style. Clear synthesis and prototype sounds, which prove the great experience of these artists.”

-Nagamag.com

Hypnotic Peafowl breathes new life into his experiments and explores different soundscapes with a quality sound design. Always in a work of advanced hybridization, he brilliantly mixes his multiple influences: orchestral music, jazz, funk, bass music. In this opus, some sweet piano bar melodies and retro inserts with stoner rock influences, dominated by hypnotic, repetitive rhythms, accompanied by a very heavy bass with a warm envelope.

This album is part of a long narrative, all my releases are built around a central character : the peacock and his spirit. The metaphor for imaging his spirit is the Pandora's box.

Quickly it is the story of a colorful peacock who is schizophrenic with all the other worries that arise from such a pathology.

Beautiful to look at, full of life and energy. A funk/Jazz fan, he exudes the joy of life. But not that, the black sides are there.

All of my past and future releases are in the form of chapters that tell a passage of the Peacock's life. Here: Pandora's box or Logorrhia tells the impression of feeling better after a first meeting before the awareness and the psychic fall.

Nyah – Sano (Spotify)

“Another Electronic / Drum & Bass diamond by Nyah. Impressive intro of gradual progression and crystal clear sound effects, fairly enough for your ear pleasure. Don't miss it!”

-Nagamag.com

‘Sano’ which means 'to heal' and/or 'cure' in latin, is what Nyah associates with the rain, and is why it was initially submitted to us for the Storm themed compilation .

‘’The tune is about rain. The image I wanted to paint is a dark sky with heavy rainfall and shimmers of light breaking through the clouds and refracting through the raindrops.’’

Nyah replicates this powerful imagery through cinematic textures and melancholic compositions. Combined with contemporary glitch techniques and sharp production, Nyah achieves a perfect marriage between the organic and digital realms of sonic capabilities.

Nyah introduces the first of many single releases which deviate from the main Sinewave Collective narrative, though plays straight into the heart of the vast universe our hive mind has begun to manifest. If you would like to learn more about the collective’s conception and the stories we are telling through ambitious audio/visual projects please visit sinewavecollective.com/home/ to learn more and if you have any questions about our vision then feel free to ask.

MxBG – Rite (Spotify)

“Experimental work of MxBG in his track Rite from Astyanax Records is a kind of fossil in the genre framework of IDM sound. In the best traditions of the old school and early work of Richard David James.”

“Экспериментальная работа MxBG - Rite от Astyanax Records своего рода ископаемое в жанровых рамках IDM звучания. В лучших традициях старой школы и ранних работ Richard David James.”

-Nagamag.com

"Rite" is an electronic variation on a sample of Stravinsky's ballet "The Rite of Spring". Between onirism and savagery, it unfolds like a meditation taking its source in the complex, haunting and implacable rhythm of the final sacrificial dance of "The Rite of Spring".

www.instagram.com/mxbg.music/

The French produser MxBG invites us to an electronic musical and visual journey, between dreaming, exaltation and nostalgia. He mixes to an exploratory techno with industrial touches his sense of orchestral colours and organic melodies.

Immersed in Beethoven’s symphonies and Wagner’s operas since childhood, MxBG was introduced to modern music via two great works: OK Computer by Radiohead and Londinium by Archive. MxBG’s carefully-crafted music reflects this wide range of inspirations and blends classical instruments with synthetisers and samples.

Fascinated by machines and their contribution to art, he develops real-time generative art algorithms that he presents in his live show articulating electronic explorations and visual experimentations.

Intermission – Laniakea (Spotify)

“From the very first seconds, when you immerse your consciousness in Laniakea, it is difficult not to notice the attraction of Downtempo with its soothing rhythm and absorbing, such a measured Ambient in the background. When power is in harmony, and harmony in music is Intermission.”

“С самых первых секунд, когда вы погружаете своё сознание в Laniakea, сложно не заметить притяжение Downtempo с его умиротворяющим ритмом и поглощающий, такой размеренный Ambient на фоне. Когда сила в гармонии, а гармония в музыке - это Intermission.”

-Nagamag.com

The INTERMISSION project is characterized by spatial themes.

Laniakea is a set of galaxies, also called Laniakea Supercluster, where the Milky Way also resides and therefore our solar system.
