“The inspiration behind this set originally came to me after seeing the beautiful illustration of Amaryllis by Tori Wheeler, which also happens to be the same design I used as the artwork for the set. In this set, I am trying to explain the blooming process of a flower through music. Each bud goes through a very complicated transformation during the blooming process. Flowers are something which I have always considered to be magical, and it has never failed to read more >

Sean Pineiro just recently released his debut album, Saved Once Twice, on Cologne-based record label Ki Records. Sean’s music is down-tempo, sample-based electronic music, which Ki Records praised for its complexity. In fact, it’s the complexity of Sean’s music that eventually led Ki Records to release his debut album.
Saved Once Twice is a layered, moody catalogue of tracks with a vast palette of sounds, ranging in harmonies and piano chords, with lush vocals and read more >

The red wine blends with the Camembert in my mouth as I get carried away to another place. Julien’s voice lies in the air like a whisper while Fabien is supporting his partner on a mandoline. In this very moment the two musicians are IN the music, totally spaced out. I can feel the non-verbal connection between them, something like a sixth sense of understanding each other without speaking, just through the read more >

Alchemy Casi Baile_670


Mario Baumspringer and Diego Martinson are Casi Baile which is Spanish for ‘Almost Dance’.
The duo met in Barcelona, both obsessed with electronic music, and everytime they would meet they spent their time showing one another the latest tunes they had discovered. This accelerated more and more over the years, and became a DJ/blog project pushing the boundaries far beyond electronic music.
On their blog Mario and Diego publish DJ sets that are of an extraordinary intelligence, and that demonstrate a read more >

ROOMSERVICE-Das-is-konfetti_sound_witnessthis

What do Arnold Schwarzenegger, Miley Cyrus and Rufus Wainwright have in common? Not a whole lot per se….other than their love for American summers and a feature on this mixtape!

Words & interview by Tori White
In a wonderful stroke of creative umami, it’s no surprise that ‘Gomorrah’, one of the most gritty and frighteningly authentic, dramatic TV series to come out of Italy would be set to the score of the most hauntingly mellifluous bands in Italy, Mokadelic.
Mokadelic started as ‘Moka’ back in 2000, before changing their name in 2008 to Mokadelic when their notoriety as a band began to shift it’s focus to composing emotional musical read more >

Have you ever found yourself standing in line at the bank, enjoying watching people going about their day around you? You’re able to stand patiently, watch the world pass you by, content and calm.

And then there are the days you shift from side to side, you can’t stop checking your phone, you find yourself using that tone of voice with the teller that you’re read more >
