Trifonic is brothers Brian and Laurence Trifon, a San Francisco based electronic act that seamlessly fuses experimental production wizardry with beautiful melodies and traditional song structures to craft music that is simultaneously unexpected and accessible. On their 2008 debut album Emergence, Trifonic combines elements of downtempo electronica, IDM, post-rock and classical music to create a deep, lush musical experience distinctly their own. Despite growing up under the same roof in Berkeley, California, Brian and Laurence launched their musical careers from opposite ends of the spectrum. Brian took up guitar at the age of 10 with only one intention: Shredding. “I had big dreams for becoming the next Steve Vai guitar hero,” he recalls. Meanwhile, his older brother was living and breathing hip-hop. “I wrote my first rap song when I was in 5th grade,” Laurence remembers. “It was about me not wanting to go to school on a Monday morning.” Although Brian’s heavy-metal dreams did not pan out, he did master the guitar sufficiently to enroll in USC’s prestigious Studio Guitar program. It was during this time that he began to explore electronic music and production. Upon graduating in 2004, Brian went to work as a guitarist and programmer for famed electronica artist BT. Laurence, meanwhile, continued to write and perform as an emcee in several hip-hop groups throughout his school years. As a student at Stanford University, he also began to gravitate towards electronic music. ~~~~~~~~~~ ( Not exactly the same but think " Massive Attack " ~ " Under Byen " and the likes.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
