SR-039 Polygrim – Descent
POLYGRIM is back with his sophomore six-track EP titled “Descent”. This time around, producer Volodymyr Dzitsiuk has refined his sound to build a solidified and detailed representation of moments in his life. Using synthesizers to create hovering bass and delicate floating tones, fragments of percussion and thick driving beats, “Descent” takes you on a voyage. POLYGRIM says, “I am teaching myself to be grateful for every single moment and aware that everyone has their own descent, which makes you drop the unnecessary and keep up with what you truly love. This became the background to this recording, which perhaps has a saudade sound to it: a bit melancholic but at the same time optimistic, slightly nostalgic yet liberating, highly detailed but not without its organic flaws and hesitations.”
SR0038 ONTHE88 – TECHnically HUMAN (COMING 9/16/16)
A release from Drew Porras’ “ONTHE88″ on the Synth Records label, has been a long time coming. The seven tracks that make up this Mini-LP, document a period of musical growth for the Los Angeles native, that ranges between 2014 up to July of this year. Blending a diverse range of electronic styles and live instrumentation, these compositions do their damnedest to shed any “Lo-Fi” or “Bedroom” aspects of previous releases, in favor of a more pop centric approach. Big and ebullient, while angular and sleek, the music included here is meant for cathartic releases in the form of full bodied expression.
SR0037 BLSHS – Hold On
SR0036 Soft Lighting – CASCADE
In Spring 2013 Soft Lighting linked up with A$AP Mob in house producer, A$AP P on the Boards, and began working on a series of tracks over a three-year period. The result was over an LPs worth of material, which was ultimately distilled into the five track Cascade EP.
Cascade is a true collaboration, a blending of two artist’s styles, resulting in something new. Soft Lighting and P on the Boards started by sending pieces back and forth online, but eventually met in person at the A$AP pad in Brooklyn. They spent a week together in the studio along with the A$AP crew, a time which proved to be bittersweet as the legendary A$AP Yams died just days later. RIP Yams.
The album’s title refers to the flood of emotions that accompany personal hardships. Subject matter on the album includes, mental illness, nostalgia, relationship instability and loss of a loved one. It is in many ways a documentary of two artists and their lives.
SR0035 TEEEL – Montage Scene
TEEEL leaves his comfort zone of writing electronic pop songs to bring forth a supercharged electrowave instrumental album. This is a “pay what you want” support campaign for the next TEEEL album. While working on the “Retro Wave” sample pack for Loopmaster this past year, TEEEL wanted to write a fun and over-the-top album to share with his fans.
SR0034 Griffin Washburn – Griffin Washburn
SR0033 ANOTHER GREEN WORLD – BEACH
SR0032 Polygrim – Pivot
Polygrim is the glitchy, vibrant and emotive electronic project of Ukrainian musician Volodymyr Dzitsiuk. By mixing synthesized and live elements, Polygrim shares inspiring stories packed in fragile melodies, fractured rhythms and saturated atmospheres. All the parts are combined into worrying and touchy electronica music, walking the edges of downtempo, idm and future hip-hop.Polygrim was founded in late 2014. New yet aspiring artist, he thinks of music writing as the best way of sharing love with the world. The debut EP “Pivot” tells about the greatest powers keeping our world afloat. It contains seven dynamic, melodic and sometimes moody tracks. This work is a blend of touchy motifs, vintage bass lines, foley sounds and massive frames of rhythms.
SR-031 Alexis – Love Or Temptation
Alexis – Love or Temptation, is a sleek sounding journey through the topics that make up the foundation of any great pop record. Love, sex, break-ups and starting over are among the key points here. Forbush’s often low register voice is best suited for this subject matter and the fit is obvious throughout the album. Recorded and mastered at River City Studios with Austin Ruhstorfer and Roy Wallace in Grand Rapids, the album marks a real upping of the ante in content and production styles. With a west coast tour in the works for early 2015, Forbush and Hurst will be keeping busy in Michigan with press, promotion and album release parties in addition to new videos, remixes and DJ events. Let the music take you over indeed.
SR-030 – ÆON RINGS – Floods
From meeting in Brooklyn in 2011; Davey Partain and Chuck Flores soon became fast accomplices in what soon became ÆON RINGS. With menacing dance floor burners and soaring synth work this Brooklyn synth pop duo is a numbing spectacle of light and sound. Lovers of the soundscapes of Blade Runner and 80′s revival, their dark and emotive songs are anything but dated. With a seamless blend of hooks, melodies and dark intensity. They’ve been welcomed by a vast range of audiences.
