Nina Kraviz ensconces the City of Love in a techno trance with Eiffel Tower set [Watch]Nina Kraviz Cercle Eiffel Tower Set

Nina Kraviz is no novice when it comes to sonic world-building. A good DJ set should transport dance floor disciples to a halcyon, far away place; and Kraviz does precisely that.

With a stunning hour-and-45-minute set inside the Eiffel Tower, of all places, the techno goddess unravels her masterfully woven web of tech-sanity all around her audience. The hypnotic performance is the latest Cercle live stream event, pairing icons of techno and house music with eye-watering, epic locations.

Kraviz’s all-vinyl set weaves in and out of minimal oddities, as the crowd dances in the shadow of the French landmark with a hazy Parisian skyline behind them. As with previous installments of the event series, the match between artist and place feels meant to be. It’s clear the gig is a special one for Kraviz, who felt that her style and the evening’s location were an inexorable match.

“Techno as an avant-garde form of music fits perfectly here,” Kraviz explained in a post-set interview. “I’m very honored to play here. I hope the guy who built it can feel us, and feels what’s going on.”


Trentemøller enthralls on aptly-named new track, ‘On A Cold Christmas Night’

This post was originally published on this site

Copenhagen based Anders Trentemøller has a knack for capturing heart-wrenching melodic moments. His exceptional productions are fused with a sonic trademark somewhere between post-punk, indie, and electronic. As a result, he’s established himself as an incredibly unique purveyor over the years. Influences like the shoegazers My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Joy Division, or even Depeche Mode seep from his music in a dazzling decorum.

More recently, the Danish producer has been posting short clips of his favorite tracks from his discography. Now, he’s ended the series with a new song, which is an apt celebration of the holiday season.

“Merry Christmas everyone,” said the producer of the new track. “It’s been fun to share some of my songs with you for the last 24 days. The 24th in every “Julekalender” (as we call it in Denmark) is always something special, a surprise. So here is a new little Christmas tune from me to all of you! Originally I only did 16 bars of the music for the documentary about me, but I kept working on the music and in the last few weeks I made it into a little song for you guys to enjoy this Christmas Day! All the best wishes to you all and thanks for the support.”

Shrimpnose unveils emotive new EP, ‘dawn’

This post was originally published on this site

Art somberly mirrors life on Minnesotan producer shrimpnose’s latest offering, the just over eleven minute “dawn (ep).” The artist commemorates his late friend Donnie’s life on the new ambient EP through melancholic yet hopeful soundscapes.

Gradually processing grief over its emotive five tracks, the “dawn” EP opens with the lo-fi title track. After the third minute mark, the first breezy tune “dawn” progresses into the static of the second, dubbed “heroes.” After the glistening third track “since then,” a whispering monologue brings the listener down to earth on its fourth offering “dusk.” Gradually growing hopeful, a stunning display of strings rounds out the EP on its closer “back when.”

The “dawn” EP showcases a gripping display of emotion and merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to shrimpnose’s talent. The artist has recently played opening slots for the likes of  XXYYXX, TOKiMONSTA, Giraffage, Purity Ring, Troyboi, Ekali, The Geek x Vrv, Eprom and Medasin. shrimpnose is set to close out 2017 with a performance at Snowta NYE 2017 in his home state.

Swedish newcomer ADAM 888 introduces feverish electro soul single ‘VibrationZ’

This post was originally published on this site

Seemingly out of nowhere, Swedish newcomer ADAM 888 has capped the year with one of the weirdest yet most wonderfully unprecedented debuts. A professional skier turned music artist, whose background also spans various video directing duties, the recent Warner Norway signee wastes little time establishing himself as a welcome oddball on the Nordic front. ‘VibrationZ’ is a trippy little tuck into the Swedish artist’s newfound blend of hypnotic electronic pop with a soulful twist, with the official video adding to what feels like a pretty high bar for the project’s overall aesthetic feel. Once in a while, it’s nice to hear something that isn’t following the status quo, and ADAM 888 certainly sets his own agenda with this ear-catching original debut.

Lane 8 releases ‘Atlas’ rework from upcoming sophomore album [MUST WATCH]

This post was originally published on this site

A mere one week after Lane 8 released the second single off his forthcoming album, Little By Little, comes a live rework of the same track, “Atlas.” Composed by Daniel Gold in his home studio in Denver, Colorado, the rework provides a visual window into a track that was deemed a stunning aural adventure by DA upon it’s initial release. The rework itself provides a more vibrantly-textured take on a nostalgic, more subdued original — complete with uplifting bass lines and electric guitar riffs that are both classy and quirky.

Lane 8’s sophomore album, Little By Little, is out Jan. 19, 2018 on his own imprint, This Never Happened

Gorgon City end the year with another jaw-dropping EP, ‘Groove On The Vinyl’

This post was originally published on this site

Between launching their very own imprint REALM, announcing their expansive 22-date “Kingdom Tour,” and taking time to talk with DA on their ubiquitous sound, Gorgon City continues to develop masterpieces in the studio. Their latest creative endeavor comes as their fourth EP project, dubbed Grooves on The Vinyl, out now on REALM.

Totaling four tracks in length, the EP taps into the Detroit tech-house underground to bring these musical tastes into commercial club spaces. Minimalistic builds, rugged bass lines, and steely beats continue to make up Gorgon City’s signature sound stamp. From the 80s electronica inspired synth patterns of “Trouble” to the euphoric releases of “Get Together,” Grooves on The Vinyl does well to remind listeners of Gorgon City’s passionate mission for future-forward house.

Stream Petit Biscuit’s soaring, cinematic debut album, ‘Presence’

This post was originally published on this site

Rising star Petit Biscuit has proven his talents for music production are developed well beyond his years. Classically trained in the cello since the age of five, Mehdi Benjelloun burst onto the dance music scene with his monumental remix of ODESZA‘s “Memories That You Call,” drawing comparisons of his cinematic sound design with that of the Seattle-based duo. The promising young producer, hailing from France, would soon catapult himself to notoriety at the mere age of 15 with his 5-track self-titled EP, wherein the project’s leading single, “Sunset Lover,” reached an unprecedented 400 million streams worldwide.

The multi-talented musician now celebrates his 18th birthday with the release of a genre-blending debut album that is every bit as warm and inviting as it is vulnerable and exposed. Presence offers sunny, progressive chord structures and colorful, polished mixing flanked by electronic touches and a furtive vocality that both chills and arouses. From the LP’s first track, “Creation Comes Alive,” featuring SONIA, to its instrumental closing title, “The End,” which utilizes the same shimmering synth pattern, the entire work becomes an evocative story book of pain and resilience for which one can use a lens into — quite literally — viewing an emotion.

Arguably the stand out track of the LP is the cinematic production “Forever Being,” which calls upon ODESZA’s sonic landscape with it’s chiming key chords, soaring vocal chops, complex half-/double-time drum work, and nostalgic phonographic movie quotes on the front and tail ends. The LP’s most astounding fact: Petit Biscuit wrote, produced, and mixed Presence over the course of the last year, finding time between high school exams and sold-out tours across the US, Europe, and beyond.

The Lane 8 camp is full of exciting announcements right now. The Denver-based artist, real name Daniel Goldstein, has announced his second album, Little By Little, out Jan. 19, 2018 on his own imprint, This Never HappenedThe album comes with an extensive 35-date global headlining tour, with stop in North America, Australia, and Europe.

To celebrate, Goldstein has released the first single off his forthcoming LP, titled “No Captain feat. POLIÇA.” The track distills Lane 8’s unique flair for melodic and eloquently-textured productions that are both classy and quirky, traversing reflective electronica, instrumental club epics and left field pop moments alike.

Lane 8 addressed fans over Twitter to announce the project,

Over the past two years I’ve waited for a certain feeling to return – the feeling that I was ready and excited to write an album again. As it happened, at the end of 2016, we finished an incredible first This Never Happened tour shortly before welcoming our daughter into the world. As 2017 began, I found myself really driven to create album #2. Throughout this year, I found a lot of joy in focusing on each little task achieved, each small accomplishment that pushed me one step closer to the goal of making another album – another experience – that I was really proud of. In a way I think that’s what this album is all about – taking the time to appreciate each small step in a larger journey.
