Video Premiere: Gagarin – Panceat (Emergo Mix)

GAGARIN

In November 2020, producer/musician Graham “Dids” Dowdall released his Great North Wood full-length under his Gagarin moniker in all of its ambient splendor.

A veteran who has played with Nico, Didwell has collaborated with John Cale, Ludus, Eric Random, Suns of Arqa, Band of Holy Jo and Low Bias, and is a member of avant rock legends Pere Ubu and duo Roshi featuring Pars Radio.

Today we’re pleased to world premiere the music video for the remixed version of “Panceat” from the album.

On the self-produced six-minute clip, Didwell explores the colors and textures of a large sheet of rust as the remix explores the depths of ambient techno. He says the rusty metal signifies the concept of nature and the beginning of the post-industrial age in London.

Tush

Tush is an indie Canadian electronic music duo comprised of Kamilah Apong (lead vocals, backing vocals, vocal loops, synthesizers) and Jamie Kidd (bass, guitar, synthesizers, programming).

Hailing from Toronto, the twosome draw musical inspiration from electro-funk, disco and soulful ’90s house music.

Ahead of the release of the pair’s debut album, Fantast, on July 30 via Do Right! Music, we’re stoked to world premiere the music video for “Wavy Baby” from their upcoming full-length.

The clip produced by Apong and Stephanie Kuse utilizes undulating and evocative computer art to accompany the elegant mid-tempo track.

Video Premiere: Nother feat. Grecale – Dance Like An Animal

Stefano Milella

Stefano Milella cut his musical teeth producing, drumming and composing soundtracks for film and television. The Italian producer has poured his lifetime of experience into his electronic-driven solo project called Nother.

Ahead of the release of his Future Is Bright on July 22 via Abyond Music, we’re pleased to world premiere “Dance Like An Animal” featuring Grecale from the upcoming full-length.

“For this song, I tried to make the voice feel as organic as possible, and bring it closer to the sound of an instrument rather than that of a voice,” explains Milella.

“I worked mostly with my headphones on as I wanted to surround the listener with layers made of Grecale’s vocals, with one whispering behind your back as the other approaches you from the front. During the explosion, you can hear children laughing, and that was the sound that inspired ‘Dance Like an Animal.’ I recorded it in a park in Stockholm where they were playing, and I created the song around this joyful vibe, a call to play again and discover the happiness of a single moment.”

Video Premiere: Invictus Hi-Fi – The Alpha

Invictus-Hifi-The-Alpha

Earlier this month U.K.-based experimental electronica artist Invictus Hi-Fi released an interesting concept album, The Market Deities. Throughout six expansive tracks sure to please fans of leftfield acts like Black Moth Super Rainbow and Dan Deacon, the mysterious producer stitches together songs comprised of smatterings of electronic styles — everything from offbeat electro to contorted trip-hop — with washes of vocal samples.

The thesis of the album investigates one burning question: “If the financial market had gods, what would they sound like?”

We’re thrilled to world premiere the music video for “The Alpha,” a bleep fest heard on the new release.

The plot follows a mysterious protagonist wearing an MF DOOM-style helmet interacting in the real and digital worlds. As the vocal sample explains what alpha means, we see vintage snippets of stockbrokers chasing alpha in the form of return on investment (ROI). In the age of Robinhood day traders, the topic couldn’t be more timely.
