NOTI – lympha (Video)

“guitar, keys, beats, it may sound easy for most but few really knows how to catch the right harmonic vibes, tell a right story, mix fine and leave you with a taste of sweet memorable vibes, well one of those few artists are and Noti with his track Lympha at Radicalis. Among the many similar musics we receive, among the thousand releases daily in the genre, few have the right bliss in harmonics and mix. Well done!”

Benjamin Noti is a Basel-based producer and musician. He has worked with Audio Dope, Steff la Cheffe, The Rumours, Greis, Noti Wümié, Manillio, Anna Rossinelli, James Gruntz, Sam Himself, and the Basel Symphony Orchestra, among many others. easing is Noti’s first instrumental solo-production. The recent lockdown afforded the highly sought-after songwriter and instrumentalist an opportunity to craft this production at his home studio. The 5-song EP showcases Noti’s wide-ranging abilities as a songwriter and musician, and draws on his rich experience as a fixture in the Swiss scene. Noti’s diverse influences, unified by his distinct, original style, shine through on lead single “85km/h”; an ode to poised motion, the track pulsates, subtly speeds up and slows down but remains ultimately unstoppable – much like the artist himself.

Passmore – A Song for Your Beach Holiday (Spotify)

“A Song For Your Beach Holidays by Passmore at Lost Nights guides you through its lounge lofi house paths, to a laid back oasis where there is nothing to stress about. Soft as feather layering, warm harmonics and solid low provide a luxurious listen experience.”

Passmore is the alias of David Lloyd, also known as Dave Oscillation - co-founder of Edinburgh's Lost Oscillation Studios. Following his formative years at a classical music school, his early career in music saw him develop a fascination for sound - in the technical and creative processes which go into developing a finished piece of recorded music. He formed Stillhound, a live electronic band with two school friends and over the coming years, the three honed their skills in music production by recording and mixing all of their own music, with Lloyd frequently at the helm. Realising a desire to release his own productions individually, he developed the Passmore alias out of a retired family name and released his debut EP on 12" vinyl with Lionoil Industries. Lloyd's music can best be described by a strong lean towards creating clean, organic-sounding electronic music. His aim with his productions is to blend between electronic and acoustic sound-sources, while attempting to manipulate the electronic sources to sound as if they to were plucked, hit or bowed on an acoustic instrument. He endeavours to blend the musicality he developed in his classical training, with the repetitive, industrial and relentless nature of electronic music.

Whilst living in Paris, France, this movement was drenched in passion, excitement and what felt like eyes seeing the world and the souls in it as if they were meeting for the first time. Finding intimacy in more than surface encounters... desire, words, conversation, romance, sounds, environment, expression.. - Hugh Klein
Who Is Hugh Klein?Raised in Melbourne Australia, following his ongoing career in film composition, Klein found himself living in the city of Paris, and soon giving birth to his loveliest and most realised project yet…Sourcing inspiration from romance, warm evenings, chilled red wine, floral scents, clothes waving and wrapping the curves of your body, gold and tobacco, "You go your way, I go your way too", low light amongst white flowers, fingertips and of course... the look of love. Hugh directs his musical exploration to his deliberate fascination with intimacy and romance. With wide-spanning influence from pockets of Blue Note jazz & neo-soul to feature film scores, Hugh Klein is much more than his recorded ideas - rather, an ongoing story to be swept into and carried along.Upcoming record ‘No Plans, No Rules’ moves through themes of intimacy, adoration, the rebirth of desire and genuine romance, engaging each mood with floating vocals and guitar, brushed percussion, lush string arrangements and rich Rhodes & Wurlitzer’s.
