numeral – Marauder

-Automatic Translation with Google Translate-
Rotary, slow rhythms Psychill, with a thick and saturated atmosphere of melodic layers, which delays as if the swords under their feet. You immerse yourself in a state of deep meditation and understand that there is no way back.”

“Тягучие, медленные ритмы Psychill, с густой и насыщенной атмосферой мелодических слоёв, которая затягивает в себя словно зыбучие пески под ногами. Ты погружаешься в состояние глубокой медитации и понимаешь, что пути назад нет.”

Saafi Brothers – Mantra Dub

“Dubby Basslines with awesome atmospheric Strings and Dreamy sequences. Saafi brothers delivers a gateway to another musical psychedelic experience. Packed with percussion and great sound design ”

-Nagamag.com

Make Pictures With The Sound’ is the brand new album by the Saafi Brothers on UK label Liquid Sound Design.

The release title is inspired by a quote from legendary British music producer John Leckie, who lends his voice on opening track ‘Beautiful Satellite’. With this album the Saafi Brothers do just that; make pictures with the sound, taking us on a breathtaking journey through their universe of sound, spiralling out from their deep roots in the Psychedelic Dub genre.

Keeping alive the Saafi Brothers’ reputation for chilled out eclecticism, the musical and emotional range for which they are renowned is very much in evidence here. From the rainforest tinged Dub Funk of ‘Ritualized Space’, through the epic deep Techno Sci-Fi soundscape of ‘In Far Away Places’ to the wigged out Acid House of ‘The Possibility of Change’, the album has much to offer for any connoisseur of contemporary Electronica.’

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. ”

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. ”
