“An unusual and memorable combination of genres such as neo-soul, downtempo and nu jazz elements. The lyrically designed composition, the instrumental introduction gradually introduces into the track, and the first-class sound design does everything to stay in the listener’s memory forever.”

“Необычное, от того и запоминающееся сочетание таких жанров, как neo-soul, downtempo и элементы nu jazz. Лирически оформленная композиция, инструментальная интродукция постепенно вводит в трек, а первоклассное звуковое оформление делает всё, чтобы остаться в памяти слушателя навсегда.”

Taken from new EP LOST IN YOUR SILENCE due 18th June via Fly Beat Music

Warriors of the Dystotheque return to their own label Fly Beat Music for the release of the 1st track from the forthcoming new album, LOST IN YOUR SILENCE features the vocal talents of Lydia Kaye (Kalahara) and has been produced on a remote island off the coast of France by the self proclaimed musical nomad, the legendary HOWIE B (Bjork, Massive Attack, Tricky, U2).

LOST IN YOUR SILENCE see’s WotD return to their jazz influenced broken beat sound and immersive vocals with British singer Lydia Kaye.

Lydia explains: “I was thrilled to team up the Warriors for their new release and had an instant affinity with this track, I was inspired by the jazz tipped style, reminiscent of the music I grew up with, it’s the kind of music I always wanted to make. I felt a real sense of freedom working on this song. It was really fresh and exciting to work with a new palette of sounds alongside an awesome collective of musicians that let me do my thing.”

She goes on to add: “The melody came instinctively and led me into this unresolved feeling of unrequited love, We’ve all been there – when the pain of waiting to hear from someone, leaves you in limbo and can have a maddening and numbing effect on your mind. Now having worked on this track with the Warriors we’re gonna do a few more for the forthcoming album, which I’m super excited about.”

In addition to the title track is An Island Affair Ft Abby Oliveira, Abby delivers spoken word over a lush string laden downtempo groove where she reminisces of all the years gone by visiting the White Isle and how we would swap our current lives in lockdown for another trip to the island of Ibiza.

The Paper Sea – The Eyelid Cinema (Spotify)

“An amazing and wonderful combination of ambient music elements and the most delicate piano melody. -The Eyelid Cinema- is easy to compare with the cooling ball of the sun leaving at night. A veil of fog descends on the ground, the sky is covered with feathers from clouds and a dream begins ...”

“Удивительное и прекрасное сочетание элементов ambient музыки и нежнейшей мелодии пиано. -The Eyelid Cinema- легко сравнить с уходящим в ночь остывающим шаром солнца. На землю опускается пелена тумана, небо застилают перья из облаков и начинается сон...”

J. Naji, Andrew Getman – aahhh/Love Your Enemy (Spotify)

“Jazz with a difference. The interplay between the saxophone & guitar, plus the deployment of subtle effects keep the tracks interesting & moving through new tonal territory. Both of the aforementioned lead instruments deliver solos worthy of mention, and the rhythm section deftly keeps everything glued together.”

Richard Ford – Orfafardo – radio edit (Spotify)

“A real laid back track full of emotional jazz improvisation. The material is so well developed that helps to structure the flow of incoming positive energy, which is emitted by a bright rainbow when listening to -Orfafardo-.”

“Настоящий релаксатор, насыщенный эмоциональной джазовой импровизацией. Материал настолько хорошо проработан, что помогает структурировать потоки входящего позитива, который излучается яркой радугой при прослушивании -Orfafardo-.”

As an accomplished composer, producer, and bassist, as an Emmy-winning music editor, and executive music producer for film, L.A.-based Brit-transplant Richard Ford humbly maintains a resume of impressive accolades. He has worked with many Oscar-winning filmmakers on such films as Sideways, Argo, and Hidden Figures and, all this as a kind of second career after spending his early adult life as bass player for British music icons like Joe Jackson, Bram Tchaikovsky, and revered guitarist Bill Nelson. Basso Profondissimo 2, the album "Orfafardo" comes from, marks Richard's continued return to his bass-playing roots:

“I began to feel as though my music mojo was tapped at the end of the workday and didn’t have the energy or patience to be creative working on my own music. So, a couple of years ago I decided to take the basses out of the closet, and made it my mission to take some time away from film work to write my own material …I haven’t stopped since! After I finished the first Basso Profondissimo project, the muse of inspiration was still there, and I kept writing for what would become my next album, BP2.”

Lo Marie – The Gap (Spotify)

“Looking for some serious Jazz music? Then you may be lucky with "Lo Marie". Discover the spontaneous tone changes in her silvery voice, followed by acoustic guitar harmonic notes. Excellent overall result with the signature of a true artist.”

“The Gap” is the latest single from Lo Marie that combines jazz and funk with neo-soul. It is the perfect girl anthem for anyone who has been conflicted about what to do when it comes to a guy who doesn’t want the same things as them. Lo Marie radiates girl boss energy and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for this year.

When she was younger, Lo Marie wanted to be an opera singer, but when she saw the amount of self expression jazz music could let her do, she realized that she wanted to go down that route with artists like violinist Melanie Alvey and bassist and mix engineer Conrad St. Clair, both of which she has worked with during her career. Lo Marie is gifted when it comes to writing lyrics, having intense drive, and fulfilling what she desires to with her music. Her abilities as an artist inspire me greatly to fight for what I want as a female artist in the music industry.

Mythos – Progression (Spotify)

“"Progression" is the recent result from the already known "Mythos". High quality sound, made with craft. Instrumental and electronic samples in absolute harmony that only Lounge can offer. A short trip to inner peace.”
