Surfin’ Bear : Bearstrumentals Vol 1 [none]

Surfin’ Bear is a guitar player who produces his own tunes rather than a producer.

Heavily influenced by early funk and other American boom bap producers, Surfy B also takes great influence from other Edinburgh producers who prove that you don’t need to be from a certain place to make a certain type of music, you just have to be a fan. That’s how it all starts.

Edinburgh born and raised (although now living in Montreal) Bearstrumentals vol 1 was made in Motionless Mama Bears spare room. The Album came out of frustration that most of the best samples have already been taken.”

Terminal Sync : Sarav [none]

Sarav is a collection of 3 ambient-dub/techno tracks which are filled primarily with atmospheric pads and soundscapes that transport the listener to a different peaceable place The tracks recount a personal trip and are inspired by the beautiful landscapes that blew me away after a trip in South-Asia, and also by my homeland with its silent and limitless fields , so the album was born from the inspiration taken during my journeys, in my countryside and in my intimate relation with nature.”

J4ck Sh4rk : Anthology ’12- Setting References – The Remixes [EE027]

“Now reaping in what they have been sowing in the previous years, a selection of tracks that shows their work in the studio. Like how ‘Within You Without You’ pays homage to break beats and acid sounds and ‘Losing My Religion’ shows full control in a re-imagined pool side relaxing disco track.”

Pk Jazz Collective : Safe From Harm [Netlabel Day 2017]

“О музыке надо не говорить, музыку стоит слышать. Так и с новым творением Pk Jazz Collective. Safe From Harm, названный по названию одного из хитов Massive Attack, включает несколько кавер-вариаций на гремевшие лет двадцать назад Happy Mondays, и уже отмеченных Massive Attack. Но его прелесть не в этом, а в лирике. Где нет собственных текстов и используются стихи поэтов середины 20-го века, промышлявших на ниве подростковых размышлений о жизни. Песня ‘What If?’ в которой лирический герой задает себе все возможные «Что если?» вплоть до «А что если я не выросту?» или «Мои родители разведутся» — достойный пример заимствования чужой лирики. Любовь, подростковые проблемы, ностальгия по детству — основные мотивы альбома. Однако, завершается он отнюдь нетревиально психоделической балладой, обрамляющей русскую народную сказку о хитром коте и доверчивых мышах в прочтении фольклориста Бориса Шергина.
И хотя на обложке увядающий цветок как символ недолговечности всего красивого, на этом месте неплохо бы смотрелся усатый мурлыка, именно такие ассоциации вызывает музыка этой пластинки.”
