SEVEN ARK

SEVEN ARK...

AKA JUSTIN DE NOBREGA

JUSTIN, WHO HAILS FROM CAPE TOWN SOUTH AFRIKA, HAS ALSO RECORDED AS CONSIDERATE BUILDERS SCHEME ON COMBINATION RECORDS AS WELL AS SEVEN ARK ON VARIOUS LABELS OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS AND SHOWCASED AT SONAR IN 2006.

''The geographical isolation has played its part: with a sense of separation has come the need to push boundaries, to combine the aesthetics of multiple genres into a cohesive whole that takes the proverbial envelope and flings it as far as is deemed electronically respectable. This is progressive electronic music that's constantly trying to come up with new forms and structures, that's as much aimed at people's appreciation of innovation and art as it is at just being great to listen to.''

NOT ENTIRELY SURE WHAT THE ABOVE MEANS HOWEVER CHECK HIS MUSIC, SICK TUNES FROM FAR AWAY TAKING YOU SOMEWHERE EVEN FURTHER.

LODEN

LODEN...

AKA JOLAN KOKS

''Netherlands-based producer and student at the Faculty of Art, Media & Technology, Jolan Koks -- otherwise known as Loden -- is a laptop composer specializing in glitch beats, segment splicing, and atmospheric ambience recalling Boards of Canada or Virgin Suicides-era Air. After creating two EPs in 2003, That's Left Is Right and In Zee, he retreated to the studio for the next two years, where he tinkered away on his next record. In 2005, he returned with The Nachtvorst EP for Colony Productions and released his most watery lush and complex full-length album, Valeen Hope, on Eat This Records, later to be licensed by Mush Records. ~ Jason Lymangrover''

WE DON'T KNOW WHO JASON IS BUT WE THINK HE PRETTY MUCH COVERED IT THERE.

BRAN


BRAN...

AKA BRAN RICHARDS

Stating his influences as Tipper, Soteg, and Prefuse 73 - it is clear in his own output that attention is given to impeccably clean production, big bouncy bass, and squishy squelchy tone selection, and this is what propels his minimal funky bombs across the dancefloor.

NEW EP ON THE WAY!




KROSSBOW

KROSSBOW...

AKA COLIN SMITH & JON STRUGNELL

Colin and Jon developed their friendship into a musical partnership after an epic night of raving and an inspirational jam session! The result of this collaboration? Jagged basslines, ripping synths and dirty beats that really get your feet thumping!
KrossBow's obsession with digital synthesis and precision editing has helped shape the sound they create today. Despite injecting a hefty portion of grit into their tunes, the end result comes out sounding polished every time!
Their acute attention to details doesn't stop in the studio… Energetic live performances, crammed full of carefully picked stompers, are sure to put your bass face on in no time!
Currently based in London, these boys are looking forward to coming in your ears soon!




MOULDY SOUL

MOULDY SOUL...

AKA RICHARD CARRIGAN

Mouldy Soul is the warped electronic ramblings of 23 year old child Richard Carrigan.

A talented multi instrumentalist at a young age, he found his way to producing very organically, starting from humble beginnings at 16 with a hijacked 4-track cassette recorder and a pocket full of dreams.

Never one to stagnate Mouldy Soul tinkered, toyed and partied until he was happy to unearth his intergalactic spectral space machine, known lovingly by himself as "Wobble funk".
