Kiko Kaid - Quartet {bt}

Sounds like a warp in time. Back to simpler days. Each song themed around history. I wanted to make it seem like the whole record was recorded by a quartet. Using a limited amount of tracks and instrumentation. Going for a more jazzy approach for this {bt}. Quartet is definitely the direction Kiko is going in. Smooth laid back, thick, and retro.

Released: September 20th, 2019

 
MRS. ARCADE2.jpg

NOYU.SIR - Mrs. Arcade [single]

Written and Produced back in 2015. Originally written for Crossing Bridges but Mrs. Arcade soon came to be its own and now NOYU.SIR is born. This downtempo yet uplifting EDM track is definitely a more energetic song out of the collective. Dancing synths being reflected by shimmering pads, all the while slower breakbeat/drum n’ bass style drums keeping the the progression along to the climax which is the engulfing bass drops towards the end of the song.

Released: September 10th, 2019

 
Imisu - Dark Hearth FINAL.jpg

Imisu - Dark Hearth

A cauldron of sound, all solo piano. Recorded at WRTI’s Performance Studio on their Steinway Spirio Grand. An improved session of two hours. I edited and layered multiple delays and reverse tracks throughout; giving it that true Imisu presence. The album is extremely cohesive in being a blending of sound and emotion. Almost like the rippling of water. It seems like it is in some sort of rhythm, but is really just chaos.. and that is the beauty of Dark Hearth.

Released: August 6th, 2019

People Eating Fruit - SugarMan [single]

A candy coated PEF single! Funky/noodly synths, three part harmonies, throat singing, “One Tree Hill” acoustic guitar vibes, and of course.. a fat hiphop beat! Branden, Paul, and myself equally share this track vocally, taking turns in the verses and layering in the pop rap verse towards the end of the track. Check out this sweet bop & music video before it melts!!!

Released: July 25th, 2019

Ovilis - Deep Within the Pyramid Walls

A two track release from Ovilis with the signature gritty distorted and washed out. Incorporating more electronic and acoustic percussion and even drum-set parts to fill out the rhythm more. Along with spacey airy pads throughout the first & second song (featuring Imisu), includes retro SFX of crashing waves and lofi synths. The Gate is a peaceful transition of how Ovilis becomes Imisu. Secret remix of Ma’am on bandcamp.

Released: July 19th, 2019

WAVE COMPLEX - Cut Me a Break

WC is back with some more backbone. Still keeping the signature progressive running synths and IDM / breakbeat drums. More trap and trance related vibes throughout. Even featuring a track with _XPRESSWINDOW giving it that slowed trot ending on the title track. All and all CMAB is certainly a progression of WC sound.

Released: June 12th, 2019

Violet A. Foster & Phlegmatic Stare - A Passing

Spooky, creepy, small ambient song. What sounds like the sound track to a 70s or 80s horror film. The wave of unpredictable string plucks, and glassy keys coming in with an unsettling bend to them. A Passing certainly captures both Violet’s odd sound and Phlegmatic Stare’s.

Released: June 6th, 2019

Eco - Ani - Dreaming of You

Recorded and produced back in 2015 and recently remastered. Dreaming of you is an upbeat post-indie rock vibe. With spacey guitars filling out the song with reverbs and delayed midi percussion. This gives the whole track a very down to earth / warm vibe. I see big skies when I hear this. More to come from this newly released project !
