  1. Title: Passing Clouds Artist: Burn In Noise Label: Alchemy Recrods Cat. No. ALCD026 Release Date: April 21st Front Cover : Burn In Noise – Passing Clouds Already with one acclaimed album, ‘Broken MP3’, released on Brazilian label Vagalume Records, Gustavo Manfroni aka Burn In Noise has put the finishing touched to his storming second album, ‘Passing Clouds’. Signed to Alchemy Records in 2007, Burn in Noise has gained recognition as one of the top Brazilian live acts over the past few years. With performances at festivals across the globe, (e.g. Full Moon, Universo Paralello, Echo), and 22 releases on labels worldwide, Gustavo has honed his style into dancefloor perfection. The album features collaborations with Cosmosis, Headroom and DJ Thatha, and 6 individual tracks that will keep moving. With an individual style focusing on strong warm basslines and textured, psychedelic leads that demand your attention, it breaks away from the standard full-on, representing a new, fresh direction in dancefloor music. Not to be miss! Tracklist: 01 - Burn in Noise - Transparent 02 - Burn in Noise Vs Cosmosis - Ancient Knowledge 03 - Burn in Noise - Last Window 04 - Burn in Noise Vs Headroom - Frequency Salad 05 - Burn in Noise - Raca 06 - Burn in Noise Vs DJ Thatha - ERT 07 - Burn in Noise - Forces of the Future 08 - Burn in Noise - Ready to Rock 09 - Burn in Noise Vs DJ Thatha - Get High Links: www.myspace.com/burninnoise www.alchemyrecords.co.uk www.myspace.com/alchemyrecords
  2. Title: Floppy Drive Artist: Flip Flop Cat. No. ALCD025 Release Date: tbc Front cover: Alchemy records are proud to unleash Flip Flop's first long player on the world. John Beesemyer-Monkman and Chris Hanson are two young Londoners who have been cooking it up for a while now, testing the material on dancefloors across the globe then whipping it back into the studio for some added power and squelch. Its rare that artists introduce a genuinely new sound to the scene but a brief listen to Flip Flop will show you that they are trying something different and that its working. If you've been on a heaving festival dancefloor in the last year and have wondered what that exotic hybrid of psychedelic trance and deep atmospheric electronica is that shakes the system to its foundations, there's a fighting chance that these two are responsible. John and Chris have been friend's since they were kids and unlike a lot of artists they have really grown up with trance music since arguably its heyday of creativity in the late 90s. Their live sets at festivals like Glade and Universo Parallelo have repeatedly been seen as highlights by party goers and other artists alike. They have both been DJing for more than ten years, giving the man acute understanding of what it takes to push tracks beyond the superficial and into the realm of powerful and captivating dancefloor music. They don't merely churn it out and there's a lot of love and discipline in the studio which adds a welcome depth and confidence to their sound. So immersed in music and parties are these boys that you have probably shared a cup of sunrise chai or at least a smiling dance with them without even realizing it. Their warm personalities have made them easy guests for party people and much in demand as a live act, and this character shines out of the album. Floppy Drive crunches and clobbers its way through 70 minutes of bold and shuddering, groovy and hypnotic dance music. Flip Flop aren't locked in by the rules of the genre instead utilizing them to build stunning sound scape's, even at times creeping away from trance music with snatches of ambiance and technoid crossover which reward the listener without confusing the palette. Tuck in! Track Listing: 1. Oriental Voodoo 2. Floppy Drive 3. Sleaze Machine 4. Sonic Air 5. Jurassic Lark 6. Diamond in the Rough 7. Equinox 8. Changa Banga 9.
