New Album "Nocturne" by Dan Caine

2018-06-22 17:10:22 UTC

0009921486 10

Dan Caine is an ambient / post-rock musician from Merseyside, England. Caine uses powerful, layered guitar melodies to create an atmosphere of an intense range of thought and emotion as he explores the depths of the human psyche. His music is a free-flow of subconscious urge and instinct; a deep dive into the unhindered world of the Id. Much like a fine wine, these meditative works expose more and more of their depth with each listen, and like a mood ring, they morph and change to reflect the state of the listener perceiving them. Caine’s music is also richly melodic and is layered with vibrant textures, created primarily from his collection of guitars, producing brooding atmospheres and serene sonic landscape.

The new album "Nocturne" features a very special guest - his musical partner from Lunar Sol, Hailey Rose, who provides some haunting vocals on “The Witching Hour”. She also appeared on last year’s album, “Transitions”.

New album Water Sine, by Nick Schofield

2018-05-07 05:50:16 UTC

Portrait by charles bierk

Nick performs and records with Saxsyndrum, Best Fern, and Rêves Sonores. As to why he’s waited until now to produce work under his own name, Schofield says, “I’ve always worked on music under a moniker or as a band, so this is somewhat exposed solo territory for me. Having grown up going to galleries and exhibitions with my mom, I always held high regard for artists who go by their own name. Personally, it implies acceptance. This music is ‘me’, it just felt like the most natural nomenclature.”

Nick Schofield continues the ambient tradition pioneered by Hiroshi Yoshimura and Brian Eno, allowing for the soothing effects to wash over us all.

Schofield is a Montreal-based musician, producer and radio host with a BFA in Electroacoustic Studies from Concordia University.

Comprised of minimal instrumentation and field-recordings, Water Sine is a soundtrack for sleep; an antidote to insomnia. Softness and simplicity. A sound that beckons for tranquility and release.

Water Sine started in June 2016 as a way to create music more fluidly, using somewhat specific production parameters that guided the compositions. Schofield used just one synthesizer (Yamaha PSS-270), one effect pedal (BOSS RV-3) and an Edirol field-recorder.

“Even though I tracked with Ableton Live, I treated the DAW like a 4-track recorder, so I had limited channels and editing options. The music itself is very much my way of coping with insomnia and tapping my nocturnal creative energy.”

New EP Journey Through an Open Mind by Dan Caine

Dan Caine is ambient/post-rock musician from Merseyside, England. A pioneer in the movement, Caine uses powerful, layered guitar melodies to create an atmosphere of an intense range of thought and emotion as he explores the depths of the human psyche. His music is a free-flow of subconscious urge and instinct; a deep dive into the unhindered world of the Id. Much like a fine wine, these meditative works expose more and more of their depth with each listen, and like a mood ring, they morph and change to reflect the state of the listener perceiving them. Caine’s music is also richly melodic and is layered with vibrant textures, created primarily from his collection of guitars, producing brooding atmospheres and serene sonic landscapes.

The Jackson Pollock of ambient post-rock, Caine is a master of breaking music down to its most basic elements and arranging them in a work of abstract purity. This enables the listener to explore their own connections to the sound and engage with the piece less as a listener, and more as an observer of aural art. His music is broad and guiding, yet flexible and undemanding, allowing the observer space with which to process their own humanity within it.

Dan Caine, born in 1988 in Wirral, England, first picked up the guitar at age 15, inspired by a lot of alternative music, as well as his own father who played the classical guitar. He has had no formal musical training or tutoring, save for being taught a few basic chords from his father. He realized early on that making music was a great way of expressing himself and began recording his experimentations as a hobby. Eventually, in 2013, he published his first album, “Ephemeris”, which was a collection of some of his best ambient pieces that he had made of over the previous years. Since then, his music has evolved and has primarily drawn on influences from ambient, post-rock and new-age music. 

Track List


  • Journey Through an Open Mind - 10:29 
  • Arcus - 05:34 
  • Take Flight - 07:00 
  • The Space Between Thoughts - 04:25


Genre : ambient, post-rock, atmospheric, chillout, instrumental, meditation, newage, post, rock, relaxation, shoegaze, soundscape

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

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.”
