Watermark High | KINO

July 31st, 2015 / Comments Off on Watermark High | KINO / by Mog/

Watermark High Profile

Watermark High is the alias of Johannesburg based experimental electronic musician and producer, Paul van der Walt. The Watermark High’s sound typically evolves around the marriage of acoustic & synthetic instruments, beats, field recordings, melodies & loops, to create evocative electronic collages.

The Watermark High has been pushing his wide-eyed, water-coloured tracks for a few years now, although he sees 2012 as his true, focused beginning, through the release of his aptly titled new EP, “In Flux”. Essentially, this new release is a glimpse into The Watermark High’s future. Paul maintains the dreamy, layered tones of his previous releases, but evolves into a full electronic realization in both production and live performance.

[ In flux ] Earlier this year I came across [ The Watermark High ], a project I instantly fell in love from the word go. Like everyone or at least most of us, beautiful music’s is generally something that takes us to places, a bridge that separate this world and the other side or a path that connects reality and visions. [ The Watermark High ] acts as the transporter and make it easy for us to cross that bridge and to reach to places only our mind can envision. There is a handful of artists who inspired me in ways [ The Watermark High ] has, to name but just a few, among are [ BVDUB ] ~ [ The Field Rotation ] ~ [ Lowercase Noises ] and the likes.

SHREDDER’S SUIT (TMNT 1990 SOUNDTRACK)

I have a bit of an obsession with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I’m an 80s kid and it was, hands down, my favourite cartoon/comic book of my childhood. It still is today. The original 1990 live action film blew my mind back then and it remains one of my favourite movies of all time. I was really excited when I heard that they were making a new live action film, until I started reading and seeing reports like [ THIS ]. It made me watch and fall in love with the first movie again. Cheesy as it was, how would they beat this? [ THIS ]?

I own the original film’s soundtrack on vinyl (and the movie on DVD and VHS – yep, I wasn’t kidding) ☺ and decided that it would be fun to remix/rework something off the soundtrack. I decided on a track called “Shredder’s Suite”. If you’re familiar with the film, you’d definitely recognize it. If not, refresh your memory [ HERE ]. So, I made my remix using samples from “Shredder’s Suite” off the vinyl soundtrack as well as various sounds and dialogue from the movie itself (sampled off the DVD). I tried to keep external sounds to a minimum. Pretty much just the bass and drums were added.

It’s a 7 minute track that, in my mind, is a mini-mix of three sketches – the first “action” bit, the middle “evil” bit and the “emo” outro part. I was considering releasing them separately but I eventually decided that they worked better as one piece. I hope you enjoy, it was a lot of fun to make. If you like it, please download it or share it. Whoever owns the TMNT franchise, please don’t sue me. It was made with Turtle love.

Flower in My Lung

July 29th, 2015 / Comments Off on Flower in My Lung / by Mog/

Flower in My Lung Profile

Band was founded by Dmitry (lead guitar) in 2007 in Korolev. Noone knows what to blame, maybe it was a space influence of a town itself, but something gone wrong in Dmitry’s metal band. He composed a post-rock track (won’t call it a “song”, because nobody is singing there, of course). It was much harder to find people who wants to play post-rock, but in the end of 2009 all band members have been gathered (Roman on rythm guitar, Roman on drums, Fyodor on bass), and band got it’s name “Flower in my lung”. Since that time band performed in a dozen gigs, changed band’s drummer (now it’s Sergey), once again performed in a couple gigs, released one LP and began to record another.

toe

July 29th, 2015 / Comments Off on toe / by Mog/

toe profile

toe is a Japanese music group. While mentioned in many post-rock circles, their song structure and dynamics are similar to many popular math-rock artists. toe is composed of Kashikura Takashi on drums, Mino Takaaki on guitar, Yamane Satoshi on bass guitar, and Yamazaki Hirokazu on guitar. Toe has formally played with this line-up since the band’s inception in 2000. They are currently one of three bands on the indie label Machu Picchu, along with the band mouse on the keys and Enemies.

The vast majority of the music is instrumental and features the swift and acute drumming of Takashi. The band is also known for its melodic, clean guitar settings. Additionally, the compositions have repetition from typical rock motifs, but use very subtle changes in beat and rhythm to form a unique sound. The band has changed their sound over their musical tenure by incorporating acoustic guitars, rhodes piano, and vibraphones in their most recent releases.

山嵜廣和  Yamazaki Hirokazu – Guitar
美濃隆章  Mino Takaaki – Guitar

The band tours regularly in Japan, and can most notably be compared to acts such as [ Pele ] and [ The Album Leaf ]. The beauty of their majestic music is that is sounds as if mystical harmonies and raw emotion is being churned out at the same time. Their explosive live performances have had fans across the globe spellbound. Their inspiring performance at FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL 2010 has recently been the most memorable.

Lizabett Russo

July 29th, 2015 / Comments Off on Lizabett Russo / by Mog/

Lizabett Russo Profile

Aberdeen-based singer-songwriter Lizabett Russo stands out in the most cluttered of genres, marked out by her Transylvanian heritage and her wealth of travelling experience. She brings a diverse and eclectic range of influences to her tracks, which move from traditional acoustic ballads to up-tempo jazz – and just about everything else in between.

Now a mainstay on the live circuit in the North-east of Scotland, she honed her craft in her native Romania, as well as taking a year to live in London and learn the ropes in a new country. Renowned for her intricate songwriting, vocal range and cross-genre appeal, she has impressed audiences wherever she has landed. In 2013, she released her acclaimed EP entitled The Traveller’s Song, which found favour with online publications from across Europe, the US and Canada. Her stock across Europe is high, having played sold-out shows in her home city of Brasov, as well as playing gigs in Amsterdam and Zurich, while her presence in Aberdeen has led to venues including The Lemon Tree and Woodend Barn. Having lived in London for one year she has played in some of the UK’s most renowned places such as The Troubadour and Proud Camden.

A prolific songwriter, the live act is now a 3-piece, breaking away from the traditional solo performer role and giving a new complexity to her work. In early 2014, she plans to continue to tour and promote The Traveller’s Song, before releasing a new record later in the year. Her vocal style and songwriting incorporate elements of folk, classical and soul combined with a sense of urgency and originality which is very much belonging to the here and now.

Some people
learn how to sing
and there’s nothing wrong with that
Liz on the other hand didn’t learn
the singing but she was born with the singing talent
and that my friend is a whole different game together.

This week, Lizabett Russo self-released her debut album titled ‘Running with the Wolves’. The album was launch on the 24th of July at The Blue Lamp (Aberdeen). This album will also get to travel to Japan for a mini tour in autumn with gigs in Tokyo and some other cities yet to be confirmed.
