Non m’importa della luna is a chilean band that’s influenced by the sounds of modern japanese pop, post-rock, trip-hop and dream pop. On the 15th of september, 2017, they released their first LP, El Fin Del Mundo y Antes Del Amanecer -name taken from the manga Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae by the renowned mangaka Inio Asano-. This first LP it’s an ambitious display of ambiental sugar-coated sounds, with trap influenced beats and energetic melodies, that swing between calm and eerie, with a heavy pop sensibility that at the same time is uncompromising, without fearing taking a more experimental side sometimes. This release solidifies the identity of the band, striving to be one of the most original band on the chilean scene. 8 tracks -one being a new versión of the song Ponón, from their first EP- and 4 remixes (by Tenzon, Orquesta Pandroginia, RISHO and The Holydrug Couple) make this album an incredible journey through a immense variety of sounds and instruments. The album was composed by the band, with the production and mixing done by Andrés Martinez and RISHO, the master also done by the later, except track 9, mixed and mastered by The Holydrug Couple.

"A couple years ago during Canadian thanksgiving I was phoned by a friend Diane and she asked me to pray for her friend, a 30 year old woman who had two children and had been just diagnosed with cancer. She had been given two weeks to live. I really didn’t know what to do, so I wrote the first half of this song. I sang it every day for those weeks and she ended up living another 2 years.
After she passed the song took on a new meaning for me. Originally it was about giving her another chance to live, but now it’s song of hope. A song that is about fighting when you feel you have nothing left. It’s about supporting your friends and being unafraid to strive for your dreams.
So why release the song now and not 4 years ago? Well there’s been a new fight for me recently. The beautiful natural habitat which is featured in this video currently has a court case where developers are trying to rezone it and rip it up. This is our fight to keep it green.
The song is about hope and supporting each other, and the music video is about supporting the people, plants, and living things in your environment."
French music and video producer Woochia processes heavily every-day sounds to create smooth and melodic techno tunes. Inspired by progressive rock bands such as Tool or Rishloo, he implements wide atmospheres and meditation sounds in his music - such as Tibetan or Inuit throat singing.
After Studying Musicology at the University of Evry and 10 years of composing computer music, his projects lead him to work with artists like Richard "Kory" Rivereau (Beyond the Dust, Rise) and Ebde (Ebde, Otter, and Snake).
The work of this multi-faceted artist, who does his mixes and video himself, has been featured in mix-tapes from "Reason France vol.3" in his early beginnings to "L'été à la ferme" by the Farworker (Champ’Caine Records).
Beside his music productions, Woochia also produces videos for his Youtube channel where he shares how he processes some of his sounds as well as some musical challenges.
Created by French music-producer Woochia based in London, this 6-tracks album - or EP - uses the soothing tones of acoustic instruments (like guitars or didgeridoo) with tones usually used for meditation (singing bowls, different types of throat singing) mixed with powerful drums and electronic bass lines to deliver a soft and melodic techno music, perfect for travelling. All the tracks of this album have been composed in trains, buses and coaches while traveling between and around London and Paris. These songs capture the feeling of being on the road, following the drift of the mind in its own imagination while the landscapes go by, behind the window.
"‘Stay A Little’, exemplifies a step in the new direction. I want to give as much as possible. Sing wherever possible. Contribute wherever and whenever possible. The music isn’t about if it fits my brand. It’s about if it fits my values. If it is coming from a place of love. This roller coaster has driven me to want to make more music, and share it with people who need a helping hand along their own journey. Now, the most important aspects of my life are love, community, sustainability, and wonder. Because life is a gift. And I want to appreciate it as much as I can. "
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
