“The slightly detuned piano sections give this track a real sense of nostalgia, a sense of yearning. One of those songs where the main theme will stick in your mind for days. A gentle tug at your heart strings, a trip down memory lane, haunting memories of a place & people you loved. The tune successfully invokes all of these feelings & more.”

Tibe D’Oro is the place of desire the Viennese Duo, Fabian Sialia and Leonard Cuscoleca, creates the sound for. In their music and composition process, they try to create a world as they feel it could or ought to be. The compositions draw from recordings from an artist mansion in North London that became a shrine for the local music scene. Singer-songwriter Amy Yon (vocals), and trumpeters Ludwig Ascher (Drahthaus) and Johnny Woodham (Alfa Mist), play with utmost freedom to a singular tempo and tune. A treasure trove of recordings allowing endless assembling emerged. The result are the three pieces X+X=1 closely interlinked through repeating and transforming elements.

Together with the work of the Vienesse Painter, Philip Mueller (Artwork, Vision of Tobe D’Oro), the compositions merge with the painter's image world depicting scenes from Tibe D’Oro.

“-I Hate The Way That I Love You- was produced as very atmospheric, regarding the whole composition and its mood. There is a clear feeling that the author introduces her listener into a strong conceptual canvas. -Lhēon- vocals sound organically in the frame of the musical concept invented by her.”

“-I Hate The Way That I Love You- выдался весьма атмосферным, как по композиции в целом, так и по настроению. Создаётся явное ощущение, что автор вводит своего слушателя в сильное концептуальное полотно. Вокал -LHĒON- органично звучит в рамках придуманной автором музыкальной концепции.”

Sweedish born, Melbourne based Neo-Soul singer-songwriter LHĒON has unveiled her brand new track, “I Hate The Way That I Love You”. Fiercely powerful, LHĒON is reaching new heights with her latest funk-tinged offering.

In striking contrast to her previous releases, the electrifying “I Hate The Way That I Love You” is jam packed with a stylish Motown inspired soundscape, topped off by the endlessly powerful and distinctive vocals of LHĒON. Written and produced by Lee Bradshaw, LHĒON brings her commanding presence to the expertly written track. Led by the constant drum beat, sassy hooks and a groove fuelled organ instrumentation, the vibrant anthemic nature of this offering has culminates in a punchy and exhilarating listen.

When asked about her new release LHĒON shared:

“IHTWILY is about the conflicting feelings of knowing someone is bad for you but still being unable to let go.”

Often compared to Adele, LHĒON’s unrelenting talent for conveying the most delicate of emotions in the most relatable yet aspirational way is what has helped her stand out. After the warm welcome to her debut EP, Full Disclosure Pt. I, and the release of the unforgettable “elique” and “pretend”, “I Hate The Way That I Love You” marks the beginning of a new sound with a new EP, Full Disclosure Pt. II.

“Deeply moving, this soundtrack for ‘After Love’ by Chris Roe is all about the divine performance of cellist Alice Purton. Alice takes on the main theme, her part representing the motion of the waves. The score is brilliant in its simplicity, the supporting instruments and sound effects subtly adding to the coastal atmosphere. A wonderful piece of music.”

“Scoring After Love was a dream project for me, and was intensely collaborative from start to finish,” said Roe. “Aleem and I worked closely with sound designer Joakim Sundström to blend the score and soundtrack together, and I was lucky enough to work with phenomenal cellist and improviser Alice Purton to explore how the cello could mimic the sounds of the sea and build the entire score just from one instrument.”

Roe’s music for After Love won Best Original Score at the Les Arcs Film Festival. It follows Roe’s highly praised work on Armstrong, Spitfire and Children of the Snow Land – just three of his thirty screen credits since 2014.

The immensely moving feature debut from BAFTA-nominated director Aleem Khan, After Love premiered to great acclaim at the BFI London Film Festival in 2020 and was an official selection for Cannes Critics’ Week and the Telluride Film Festival.

After Love open in cinemas across the UK since Friday 4 June 2021.

Doppe & Kokke Interview on Nagamag

.


Nagamag:
Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Doppe & Kokke:
We are definitely in the area of house music, in particular tropical house, and EDM. But we don't want to limit ourselves. We have a couple of chillstep tracks on the way also. We love a good melody that you can go and whistle on for a long time after hearing the track.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Doppe & Kokke:
We have always been interested in music but never taken the step to produce our own. Our original careers are in a very different area. At least once per year we go on a road trip around Europe and we prepare for weeks before to have the right playlists to set the mood in the car. The last year we have not been able to go on a trip, but we missed it and the good music, so we decided it was time to produce some of our own beats that we can listen to when the lockdown is over.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Doppe & Kokke:
The last years from maybe where Avicii, Kygo and similar DJs started to breakthrough I think we found a genre that was more appealing for both of us. We have always liked electronic music, but adding a great singer and making awesome melodies talks to us.


Nagamag:
What is your next project?

Doppe & Kokke:
We have a few new tracks in the making, but we are not stressing them. Without revealing too much one of them we are especially fond of which is a kind of mix of tropical house and RNB beats. We are currently working with a great singer and when she is ready I believe we have the next hit song ready.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Doppe & Kokke:
Doppe: Jan Hammer Kokke: Gary Moore Doppe: "Miami Vice Theme" Kokke: "The Loner"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

Doppe & Kokke:
Ehrling "Sthlm Sunset"
