Brimbore – MoonMot (Video)

Brimbore – MoonMot
(Video)

Brimbore is a quiet mood with a strong melody. First a calm double bass solo introduces the song, then the trombone plays a melody over nice Fender Rhodes Harmony. Later alto saxophone and baritone saxophone and drums are added for a strong buildup that makes a intense peak.
Brimbore is the second single release from our upcoming album Goint Down the Well.
Going Down The Well is the debut album from UK/Swiss collaborative sextet MoonMot, a project bringing together Swiss musicians Simon Petermann (trombone/electronics) and Oli Kuster (Fender Rhodes/electronics) with the UK’s Dee Byrne (alto saxophone/electronics), Cath Roberts (baritone saxophone), Johnny Hunter (drums) and Seth Bennett (double bass). The album was recorded at BeJazz, Bern in March 2019 and is released by Swiss label Unit Records in February 2020

Pedro Meirelles – Tear (Spotify)

Pedro Meirelles – Tear
(Spotify)

Pedro Meirelles is a classical/rock composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist from Rio de Janeiro.
Throughout time, while developing his hybrid alternations of dissonant minimalism and percussive orchestrations, Meirelles began building and licensing his extensive solo catalogue while also working with renowned names such as Gogol Bordello, Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Goran Bregovic and Andrew Scheps.
“Tear” is an expansive track, building from gentle trickles into a triumphant emotive escalation. The first section resembles the beginning of a snowfall, gentle in its introduction, before a blizzard envelops the night. The track manages to effectively convey a rising-and-falling feel in under two minutes, within a wintry atmospheric pull.

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

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Chillout, Ambient, Electronic, Deephouse

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
I started in 1992 with an Amiga 500, the 4-track music program Octamed and an 8-bit sequencer! Bit by bit new elements were added, a Korg 01w / FD, an Atari computer was needed for the first Cubase, later a PC, in 1998 I had a real studio with many analog synthesizers, one of the first digital mixing consoles, Akai samplers and so on. Back then, I had done a lot of music with a friend and later a DJ from Bremen, house and techno. When I first moved to Heidelberg 2001, I no longer had the space for a studio and gradually sold everything and only had a PC, a master keyboard and speakers. Because of my medical studies I had less and less time for music, that was in Marburg, where I also met my current colleague Thomas Lemmer. Many years later I sent him a few tracks and our first song Pastelstrand was released on his album pure! After that we released our first EPs and album together. We also got great remixes for the EPs. We are currently working on our second album and I am really looking forward to the next release! stay tuned, it's worth it!

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

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
I first love to electronic music was like written bevor the Amiga 500! Before that I had no real music style and I mostly heard charts. It was great to experiment and to experience electronic music in every detail. Jean michel jarre was my role idol.

Nagamag:
Did you make money with music?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Yes, of course, a fraction of a cent per stream. Last year I earned almost a few euros! 🙂 still nothing to live on. But music should primarily make people happy, when money is added it is nice but not important.

Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Vangelis "Conquest of Paradise"

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

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Thomas Newman "Any other Name"

Space Above, Tom Young – Nobody Home (Spotify)

Space Above, Tom Young – Nobody Home
(Spotify)

The new single ‘Nobody Home’ was written with New Zealand’s Tom Young of popular band LEISURE and songwriter / producer in his own right.
Presented in a hypnotic space of glitch beats and rhythmical bass, the landscape of Space Above’s trip-hop influences and dark moods showcased allowed for Tom’s vocal to propel the track further in to a world of depth, suspense and crescendo.
Space Above is the atmospheric-electronic project of New Zealand music producer Aaron Short, formerly of The Naked And Famous. Space Above strays from pop structures in an exploration of ethereal sounds and dance floor progressions. Blending spacious vocal melodies from artists including Alisa Xayalith, BOYBOY, So Below, with intoxicating electronic twists, Short is always looking further outwards for inspiration.
The project began with a series of singles and remixes emerging from Short’s home studio in Echo Park during 2015, and a full-length album titled ‘Still’ following in 2017. With its lead single ‘Fall Through’ featuring as Todays Top Tune on KCRW, and its musical themes of deeply frozen escapism, the record made for a journey that caught ears from The Line of Best Fit and Hillydilly, and premiered on Consequence of Sound.

The single opening an anthology is about the journey of Boreas, the God personifying the North wind, around the corners of our planet. This metaphor is designed to convey the craving and desire for creativity that the author feels, drawing inspiration from the world of nature that surrounds us.
