  3. Kukan dUb Lagan ~ New Life New Vision :: MikelaBella Records :: Coming Soon! For the past two years, Israeli music label MikelaBella Records has made a startling impact upon an already well established scene, an achievement as respectable as it is not easy. However, the musicianship and technical experience of its owners and participants speak for exponential amounts of time beyond oven that. MikelaBella's philosophy is one of unification rather than classification and their showcase of styles reflect this. Having featured releases under the genres of Electro, House, Techno, Dubstep and many more, the common interest and criteria for the label's artist is one of quality emphasis and attention to detail. Every artist packs years of personal music experience under their belts, both on the dancefloor and in the studio, as DJ and more. This label's latest release ‘New Life New Vision’ by Kukan dUb Lagan encapsulates these ideals and philosophies perfectly. Showcasing a dozen tracks which hail from a rainbow of eclectic musical genres from both the traditional and experimental spectrums of sound, yet belonging to none. The most important aspect, and well worth emphasizing at that, of this release that truly moves it onto its own level is its utter lack of sterility and banality. "Kukan", despite its subtle electronic nature, feels alive, generated directly in your immediate environment or between your ears. It is this aspect which elevates music, and specifically this stellar release, into true artwork masterpiece status. After you have listened, you will understand to the fullest just what that means. Track by track: Colazione Dalla Nonna This intro piece sounds like something that came out of a smoky jazz blub or reggae bar more than a "traditional" electronic music piece. However, the digital elements show themselves before long, making this an overall appropriately enjoyable introduction to the rest of this album. La Vita This track is like an iced drink on a hot summer day. Chilled out, yet refreshing and condensation-inducing, "La Vita" is built of crisp urban percussion elements, a warming bassline, and minimal synth effects accompanied by live horn sections. This genre-breaking arrangement has the precision of a studio-built track with all the atmosphere of a live music performance. Zingari Vibes This old-timey intro belies a following procession of glitchy drum work resting atop a soothing sub bassline more felt than heard. Reggae guitar stabs quantify background wah pedals and bluesy saw waves and subtle synth arpeggios. Funky and eclectic, this piece combines all the best pieces of retro flavor with ultra-modern techniques and electronic styles. Psychedelic Funk-O-Delic As the name implies, this is a neuron-tickling arrangement of off-timed drum and bass works. Cowbells clang out head nodding beats to the tune of a heady bassline and \mid-range riffs which order up a dancefloor shaken, not stirred. Masterful piano work distracts you from the subtle changes in percussive filtration and glitch placement. The Re-Turn of the Master Immediately noticeable is a crunchier-than-normal bassline which contrasts nicely against crisp, clean hihats. Roughly a minute later, the beat is in full swing, using clever amounts of reverb and panorama which implies spaciousness. Beautifully affected digital strings echo and bounce about, giving this reggae-esque track a slight touch of Eastern vibration. Funk Me Minimal urban beats paint atmospheric soundscapes of smoky relaxation and musical marriage of East and West amidst a jungle of percussive groove. Pitch-oscillating resonance drifts between left and right as a masterful brass section plays its way from the hinter ground to the fore. The bassline definitely earns this track's name, with an echoed piano adding the cherry to this sundae. Volcano Session This track picks up the tempo a tad. Bass drops and a lightly housey drum sets progress with the chugging rhythm of a choo-choo train while dirty filtered synths build in intensity. This is one that will get you out of your seat hand help you break free of the roots you've gathered. Instruments both analog and digital make this piece a fruitful collusion of wide ranges of musical spectrum. SunSet with MikelaBella Cacophonies of blended daily noises throw your perceptions into short chaos before surgically realigning them with well-placed rhythmic repetition and harmony. Expertly panned Latin guitars influence duets against jazzy string melodies. A bit of brass improvisation rounds out this piece to the fullest, creating an atmosphere somewhere between a smoky blues club and a spring mushroom garden. Scratch This masterwork of electro glitch seems parented by a wedding of analog synth bass and housey-reggae percussion. The bleeps are tasteful, well-timed and never overused. The musical progression is smooth, reassuringly leading you into worlds of retro synth sounds which never remain the same from second to second, panning their oscillation rates at regularly chaotic intervals. New Life New Vision This track is obviously a piece with a meaning and dedication behind it. At once noticeable is the attention to clarity and quality of each of the sound elements. Bass, percussion, and lead fit amongst each other comfortably and with plenty of breathing room to spare. A live-feeling conga and bongo session is the highlight of this piece, slipping you completely into the groove. L'illusione del Capitano Squelching tape delay punctuates the sections of this track, making it a department boutique of altering moods, all glued together by a bellows-like bass and guitar using small touches of distortion. Medleys of influence abound here, from eastern European organ, winds and brass from even further, and Dubstep percussion from the concrete jungles coexist in smoky harmony.

  4. Hoopy Frood - Indigo :: Megadodo Recordings :: Coming Soon! "Indigo", by the UK based band Hoopy Frood, is a nine-track collection which borrows from, questions, the formulae of a cornucopia of forbearing musical genres and styles. Here, the worlds of psychedelic folk rock, world beat percussion, reggae, dub, jazz and so many others come together to exist in sonic harmony, with each track being a baby of all of these lineages yet bearing its own chromosomes not yet heard in any other project. There's something for every age and background here, from Floyd-esque guitar, digital mastery, heartfelt, well thought out lyrics which seamlessly blend Western and Eastern styles, and eclectic percussion woven together but true virtuosos of the drum and the turntable. All in all, this album is saturated with an organic, live-in-your-living-space feel to the sounds. Produced by the UK composer legend Ott, known globally for his superb talent and ear for high sonic quality, every moment of this album is a moment well spent. "Indigo" tells a story throughout each note in such a way that separates it from more mediocre music, and will doubtless be one that is talked about and enjoyed for quite some time to come. Click below for samples: 1. I Was Looking Into The Sky 2. Indigo Child 3. Summershine 4. Suspended In The Brightness 5. It Lasts Forever 6. Samsara 7. Chasing Inspiration 8. Journey 9. The Hundredth Monkey Track by track: I Was Looking Into The Sky This introductory track to this eclectic album greets you with whimsical, reflective narratives. Harmonic folk guitar greets airy keyboard chords creating celestial atmospheres. Even within a track of an ambient nature like this one can sense a palpable energy build-up within the unfolding story. Indigo Child Cleanly cut gypsy-style string pluckings roll straight into groovy percussive riffs built atop warm bass undercurrents. Immediately organic and attention-arresting, smooth guitar paints a folksy background according to an up-tempo reggae-influenced drum beat. Emotive vocals progress this narrative further, followed by excellent cameos of silver flute and guitar licks. Summershine Major piano chords capture the essence of skin-warming solar moods. A housey four-on-the-floor groove leaves plenty of room to be filled with beachy steel drums, congas, and subtle brass samba. Warm bass propels currents of musical waves. A brilliant vocal duo tops off this sonic sundae with sensual polarity, with tension and release placed in all the right spaces. Suspended In The Brightness The organic couples with the digital in an ambient harmonic intro of delicate chord progressions on the guitar amongst vocal synth simulacra. Masterfully manipulated verbage open windows into the realm of inner thought. The bass-beats are tender and decompressing, and the guitar and sax and piano seem so tangible, it's as if your favourite mates were jamming right in your living room.. It Lasts Forever This segment seems to adorn itself with a new, different mood. The lyrics are touching, welcoming and evocative, and the guitar spills out happy tears of familiar love, both bittersweet and assuring at once. The percussion is crisp, clear, and quantifying, with punchy kicks, slapping snares, and high hat alternations in all the right spaces. Samsara Beautifully touching lyrics and sublime guitar take the lead in this pleasing mix of subtle drum-work and slightly sad basslines. Quite simply, this is music at its finest, with every element working together to paint a temporal portrait of sound. From moment to moment one can appreciate the energy this group of innovative sound artists put into their work. Chasing Inspiration This is a ten minute saga of bliss covering a huge array of musical styles, from reggae and dub influences, jazz sax elements, to glitchy synthesis which offers excellent dynamic contrast and a wide musical spectrum. The guitar is improvisational and enjoyable, and the lyrics are meaningful. Mood changes and musical progression abound in this odyssey. Journey Major piano chords and crisp drum repetitions quantify flowing arpeggios and lilting folk-rock guitar. High-timbral voice utters words of beauty and harmony. Rhythm, lead, and lyric come together to inspire second winds of joyful, conscious endurance. Pink Floyd-style instrumental wailings walk with comforting bass in music which blurs the line between digital and analog synthesis. The Hundredth Monkey The finale track of this amazing album certainly does not disappoint, and shows clearly the hard work, heart, and effort this band of musicians puts into their craft. The entire track is an excellent musical build-up of energy which leaves you refreshed with a feeling of satisfaction and contentment, and wraps up this unique collection superbly and masterfully.

Secret Vibes is proving its success again as one of the established leading bands of the French electronic scene for their original music and for being one of the most amazing and dynamic live performances. Proudly released by well-known and reputed label Aboriginal Records, "Firefly" is a collection of tunes that does not disappoint; indeed, the whole album is a sonic magic carpet ride around the world and back again, as well as through a decade and beyond of time and musical influence. Track by track: Firefly Kicking off with springy, ping-ponging synth riffs, “Firefly” leads into a bouncing bassbeat encapsulating tribal mouth harps, rhythmically gated vocals and panoramic percussion. Visions of ancient sacred spaces and natural overgrowths come to mind through soft, organic fusions of musical techniques which paint otherworldly scenescapes you can float straight into. Dingeling Stitched seamlessly into the mood of its predecessor comes a distinctly uptempo track which raises energies, yet retains a convergent flavor. “Dingeling” lends itself well to sunny dancefloors. Mantric chanting and filtered synth riffs ride groovy basslines and lively drumbeats. Ethnic arrangements and altered timings keep the progression refreshing until the end. Iris Silver flute and elastically pitched didgeridoo open up for rich undercurrents of kickdrums and evolving bass. The resulting melodies seem more alive and immersive, with not a shred of sterility or stasis from bar to bar. Excellent use of panorama and background noises lead your mind outdoors and build up in ritualistic intensity which get your toes twitching for more. Terre Happy Indian tabla, carribean steel drums, shakers and triangles fill out a diverse, worldly percussion section glues together by rosy vocals and mellow flute leads. From the low frequencies to the highs, this arrangement is a smile-inducing blend of culture and techniques both musically sound and saturated with positivity, supported by warm, springy bass undercurrents. Boost This track kicks the tempo up a notch and is a well placed peak builder within this album. The drum section keeps it fresh with plenty of change-ups and reworks. Ear-friendly sine synths duet with eastern strings influences which kick your feet into kung fu overdrive. This flutist's fingers get their exercise and pair excellently with gentle digital riffs which tie this piece together. Elf Control Delving into the peak time of this album is an Eastern-influenced trance stomper filled with all the ingredients to propel you across the dancefloor. Funky bass, complex percussive elements, and a variety of flutes for your upper half to ride upon make this one a great faucet for soul-quenching, foot-tapping inspiration. Desert This track's beginning offered a welcome moment to breathe and refresh. Soothing vocals, a downtempo beat, harmonic chords and more help ground you before launching back into heightened musical energy. Arpeggiated shamanistic throat music, funky bass and crisp high hats give you what's needed to grace the dance space with renewed vigor. Spanish Pulsating bass, effected, pan-sweeping flute, subtle sounds of nature and superb vocals give you the proper ups, downs, lefts, and rights to build atmosphere and transport your mind to mystical realms. Every sound has been carefully arranged to build tension and release it at just the right moments in a track born to be enjoyed under the stars. Shaman "Shaman" takes a slightly different twist, introducing rock style guitar riffs with ever so slight amounts of distortion. The production quality is top-notch. High hats and cymbals dance and skitter about to the tune of warm, forceful bass with jazzy wind sections which every music aficionado can enjoy and appreciate, both on and off the dancefloor. Oxalis This album's wave of energy has reached its crest, and "Oxalis" offers a welcome respite to decompress and recollect oneself. Chilled out electro grooves and delicate harp melodies offer the harmony needed to lose one ’s self behind closed eyelids and drift away as the body sways in unconscious rhythm. Tablas and flute gloss the arrangement with intelligent, beautiful notes. Afric The music picks back up with a groove peppered with Arabic scale progressions and an array of ethnic instruments spanning the myriad cultures of the Dark Continent. The result is a powerful groove which is slightly haunting, and the subtle blend of digital and traditional elements add futuristic twists to ancient styles of sound. Indus Ritual "Indus" transports us straight to the south of the Himalayas with a style influenced by sounds and melodies which spawned a whole genre of electronic music. Thumping trance bass lays the groundwork for a mad stomper which catapults your psyche into the stratosphere as the dirt squishes between your toes. Ocean Mastered The finale of this album is the perfect cup of musical tea to return you to the physical realm with a smile. Gated vocals, warm saw leads, and lovingly plucked strings are easy on the ears and massage your neurons with expert care. Reverb and panorama add space and dimension you can either lose yourself in or guide yourself through, if you so choose.

  12. Troll Scientists ~ 'Sir Eel (Album Release)' :: OUT NOW! It is a truly respectable thing when a music making act breaks the established molds and siezes their album for their own, and the Troll Scientists, hailing from Finland, have done this absolutely admirably. Riding the momentum of their acclaimed debut album, "Useless Science", the trolls have been hard at work both in the studio and on stage, reliably and relentlessly performing across Europe and Russia, cranking out a plethora of free releases, and not in the least, compiling their next album, "Sir Eel". To describe this album simply as "psy-trance" woul dbe doing this work a disservice, as each of these tracks comprise a vast array of eclectic musical influences as well as stellar newly engineered sounds and styles that seem plucked from the neural webworks of the artists themselves. As a collection, "Sir Eel" pushes the boundaries of perception and description in every direction and tests the limits of these superb artists' potential with every kicking beat. Once again, with this album, the Trolls display their commitments to quality dance music production enjoyable both on the dancefloor and off. Listen for yourself and find out what thousands have already discovered about the musical magic of the troll Scientists. Click below for samples: 1. Disco Doctor 2. Fisherman's Symphony 3. Follow The Sardines 4. Birth of Vainamoinen 5. Congo Party 6. Un Question du Pop 7. Attajara 8. Zemel Dance 9. Ziko 10. Witch Protector Track by track: Disco Doctor An inpressively thick, rolling basstone directs the uncercurrent for panoramically sweeping rhythms and background pads which seem to breathe. Timed by a meaty kickdrum and crisp percussion, every sound rides the crest of their filters in an ever upward spiraling musical arrangement engineered for tension twisting dancefloor sessions. Fisherman's Symphony Kicking this one off is a definitively unique and innovative introduction, and the musical body which follows, an intriguing amalgam of classical, breakbeat and psytrance influences, does not disappoint. Part technotronic, part wandering Gothic gypsy, "Symphony" seems to take on a groovy life of its own, creating vibrations every bit as trippy as they are mody moving. Follow The Sardines With a track name like this, one should expect the unexpected within the music, and rightly so. Thick, broken bassbeats keep your heads nodding and your botty bumping. The Trolls pack more twists and turns into this track than a bag of pretzels, showing off their brilliant diversity with musical flair. Prepare for a very bumpy ride while following those little fishies. Birth of Vainamoinen Timeless bits from each corner and time of the world mesh together in a highly charged intro, building up to dubtastic downtempo beats, earthy atmospheres and pitch-riding foreground melodies. Absolutely fantastic drumwork takes center stage, ramping up both the tempo and the tension with masterful grace. Congo Party The Trolls outdo their old sciences time and time again with their seemingly limitless talent and expression. "Congo Party" is indeed a pinnacle, with authentic, ingenius percussive elements, namelessly exotic instruments and ritualistic vocals make for a track closer to tribal spellwork than digital studio production; a true creature of a Troll's world. Un Question du Pop At once urban and ethnic, this track poses the obvious question of how many influences can one glue into one compilation before it becomes a non sequitur? This piece by the Trolls is just that, a brilliant musical piece which borrows from many and creates something truly new, original and experimental, combining harmony and dissonance in previously inconcieved ways. Attajara Bits of ethereal padwork and acid jazz brazz float through the soundscape as a deep four on the floor brat chugs into the foreground like a choo choo train. An easy listening track fir for sultry summer listenings either outside the stars or smoky indoor settings. Warm bass, eastern strings, horns and laid back drumwork take you on a four minute journey around the world. From subtle Carribean touches to gypsy-style electric organ, this second single from the Scientists' upcoming Sir Eel" album takes you on multidirectional safaris of sound within the confines of your cochlea. Zemel Dance Launching straight back into peak hour trance madness, the Trolls invite us onto a new rollercoaster ride of echoed delay rhythms, high digital tweaks and plenty of synth blurbs, blurts and squirts. Bounced along by mountainous basslines, every sound changes, enters and exits at just the right moments to keep tensions rising and the dancefloor antics in motion. Ziko An intriguing experimentation in musical timing and structure set the skeletal frame for eerie music drifting between trance, breakbeat, ambient, and all stops in between. The first digital single of the Troll's anticipated new album, this funky track is a solid, subtle arrangement of drums and sounds show off these Finnish artists' potential with every moment during this musical odyssey of imaginative experimentation. "Ziko" is ahead of its time, growing tendrils into new directions of trance music. Witch Protector The Trolls definitely don't wrap things up quietly, and "Witch" is a testament to peaktime full moon trance music concieved to be heard at night in the open air. Intense bassbeats and ping-ponging rhythms set the substrata for ego crushing, emotion inducing trance set to skyrocket your soul and keep your feet jumping like popcorn on a hotplate.
