Italian outfit Paliki revealed the new video/single “Tonight” in March 2017. Built on a deceptively simple and utterly catchy keyboard refrain, the track is the second single taken from the upcoming album 'Radiornot'.
Vie En Ville is the project of Aaron Atkins, a musician hailing from San Francisco, California. Drawing influence from the likes of Oasis, Roxy Music, New Order, and The Smiths, Aaron's music is a delicate mixture of ambiance and melody. As a passionate lover of classical music and a student of Opera, Atkins brings a very meticulous approach to the production of his music. He takes much of his inspiration from the words spoken through the bustle of life in the city, which provides him with the stories he uses in his songs once called "powerfully minimalist". Currently, Aaron is working on completing a small collection of songs aimed to form a solid introduction to his style and approach to music-making.
On the track itself, Aaron says the following: "This is the second single I've released with this project, and I was going for a dancer, '80s disco vibe based on some really shiny keys and an aggressive chorus. I know the Bee Gees don't get a whole lot of love in the music press, but I was actually pretty inspired by tracks like "Tragedy" that just had a huge, shameless chorus."
Both Jade River and Deeskee have done a lot musically over the years, but they seem to be just getting started with...Zero Gravity. Jade River has had a busy couple of years releasing projects with Ariano, 2mex, Philieano, and his long-time friend and collaborator, Deeskee. Deeskee, known for founding LA2thebay, has released several albums and worked with underground crews like the Visionaries, The Shape Shifters, and Living Legends. His hip-hop style is about touching the abstract and experimental scene. Jade River, returning from the release of his single, "Wrong Side," delivers his fine-tuned production with Deeskee's roots in the LA scene. The process of this album results in a true blend of styles. Deeskee's live and sequenced arrangements allow Jade River to stand out with his bass-heavy, drum knocking presence. The album weaves in-between solo tracks where they both show off their own methods. Mixing the solo efforts with collaborative songs makes the project feel connected and unique. Listen to the styles of Jade River and Deeskee powerfully collide on Zero Gravity

Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
