WakeUpNeo : Flying Conditions [CVU018]

“Fresh from a string of gorgeous releases including a record with Australia’s rapidly materialising standard for hard, fast, and off-kilter electronic music – Meganesia, as well as shows up and down the eastern seaboard in months prior, WakeUpNeo has been nothing short of a busy chap.

For his age, he shows an admirable level of grace and expertise in his productions, borrowing from the best parts of days gone by and revitalising them into something contemporary, crisp, and pumping. The Flying Conditions EP exemplifies this oh so tastefully, bringing 5 original works to our free unreleased series.

Warm moments are felt throughout the release, as we straddle electro, trance, and techno, following the continuous 4tothefloor chug. Proud leads and tight percussion are found throughout, complemented by the twinkle of emotional plucks and stabs. Variety is also the name of the game here, as we go from soft to hard, home to the club and back again. To flog a dead horse just once more, we are ecstatic to be able to bring more emerging talent to the fore, in this readily accessible, free to download format. Bon appétit!”

Neo / Rejinald : Inceptive [CVU017]

“One of our strongest core beliefs here at camp de la CV is that of authenticity. In our releases, in our voice, in our presentation, we aim to strip away all the unnecessary marketing speak, remove the disingenuousness that can come with online promotion, and do things for the love of it, not to follow a trend or appeal to a certain group of people.

So we do not say this lightly: Neo/Rejinald, real name Jack Raymond, is a once-in-a-generation type of artist. For having only been in the game for a relatively short amount of time, Raymond’s sound design, originality, composition, and technique are all beyond exceptional; freakish even. Apart from founding and releasing on the All Sorts imprint who we also collaborated with for ASCV101, Inceptive is the first comprehensive work that he’s put forward. The LP is split across two aliases – one more techno leaning (Neo), one DnB-oriented (Rejinald) – and we are thrilled to be able to present it to the world.

Absolutely thumping low ends, bright-yet-gritty pads, and steamrolling percussion occupy the virtual A-side of Inceptive, still upholding Raymond’s sense of feel-good techno. On the B-side, we find a dynamic, endlessly warm set of Drum n Bass rollers, that will fill your minds and hearts with joy. A truly spectacular listening experience through and through, combining the best parts of dance floor euphoria and at home introspection.

From us, please give this a listen and download at your leisure, straight from Soundcloud. You won’t regret it.”

88756 : Self [CVU008]

“For the release of our first Queensland-based artist, we are stoked for CVU008 to have come from a connoisseur of all things electronic, and burgeoning producer, dj, and programmer: 88756.

88756’s multidisciplinary, focused approach to music and art has seen a torrent of releases since 2019, almost always accompanied by imagery generated through an automated video generator that was written in python. Concurrently, this approach has honed a certain sonic precision that is ever present in these tracks; everything from oldschool electro to modern polyrhythmic madness.

On remix duties – Olympic Pool Maintenance League, another one to watch in Brisbane – takes us through a mind-altering remix of Self, one that churns and wavers through a broken soundscape.”
