Pat Lok just unveiled his new Corazón EP, out now via French powerhouse Kitsuné Musique. The Vancouver native's Corazón EP is both fiction and cautionary tale, metaphor and lament - revolving around a relationship that takes place over only 36 hours. In the larger sense, Corazon is about something we each deal with in varying levels and how we treat ourselves and each other in a time of 'instant everything'. We all desperately want real connections but maybe aren't so sure how to go about them building them. Sometimes these intense, rapid encounters occur naturally - but sometimes they are just illusions we've built up in our minds from clicking 'Like' on a few posts or exchanging a few messages. Listen to the illustrious “Fearless” featuring Luke Burr, and explore the moving 7-track effort today.
Having already wrapped up three EP’s – ‘Shelter,’ ‘Watching’ and ‘Rhythm Flow’ respectively – Noel ties it all together on his debut album “Reborn.” This project is the finishing product of a producer who wanted to re-immerse herself in the world of drum & bass and found a perfect place in ProgRAM. As one of four of the album’s exclusives, title track ‘Reborn’ steps in with edgy synths patterns and rippled arpeggio melodies. The track’s subtle rowdiness offers more to marvel at which makes it no surprise why the productions made it onto the full LP. Since Noel was the first artist to manifest his album on ProgRAM, he certainly cements himself in the history of the label. "Reborn" is a coherent collection of Russian talent.
jackLNDN is no stranger to our pages! We’ve been supporting this legend since he was a wee lad still making beats from his parents basement in the UK. After many years of rad releases, about a dozen shows, a move to the USA, and all around general hangs …. you could say he’s one of our besties! We are VERY excited for this next premiere of “Gone” by jackLNDN which will be included on his first full-length album THOUGHTS out AUG 16. This new track has all that deep house goodness that only Jack can vibe, but this time he’s tackling the “darker side of loneliness; when the mind is such a mess, that numbing it seems is the only way to cope.” With shadowy melodies under deep house beats and dulcet vocals, we get all the feels. Get personal with jackLNDN and get into this one kids!
