CLD.RĀN is Victor Ferreira’s new adventure that steers toward all things glitchy. Ferreira’s new realms are based on digitally degraded, click n’ cut groove textures and artfully granular melody experimentation. It is a fresh outlook and a bit of fantasy for Ferreira’s mind, taking a breather from his usual occupation as the head honcho of Sun Glitters.

Mugwood is the solo project of Antony Ryan (half of electronic music duo ISAN), primarily exploring and reworking material by other artists using a simple rule: transmitting and re-recording source material via portable radio, with further manipulation using the Teenage Engineering OP-1.

Arms and Sleepers announce new album with single ‘Give Me This’

‘Give Me This’ is the new single from the electronic music duo Max Lewis and Mirza Ramic, aka Arms and Sleepers. The duo has been actively releasing music since forming in Boston, Massachusetts back in 2006. Their sound has spanned electronic, trip-hop, ambient, and hip-hop genres, among others. With several dozen releases and extensive worldwide touring under their belt, the duo is now gearing up for what looks to be their most serious musical undertaking yet: a six-part music release to be made available throughout 2020.

‘Give Me This’ is the first taste of what’s to come next year. Taken from the first of six upcoming releases, the single is a confident opening statement that combines elements of the older, more melancholic Arms and Sleepers sound with the heavier electronic music leanings of the last full-length album ‘Find The Right Place’. Writes Ramic, “As with some of my favorite songs that we’ve written over the years, this track came together pretty quickly. I came across this vocal sample while looking through some old files on our music hard drive. It resonated with me immediately, and I decided to stay up all night and make something out of it. The result in the early morning hours was a first draft of ‘Give Me This’, which I then sent over to our pal Sun Glitters to polish.”

The Luxembourg-based music producer Sun Glitters has once again been tasked with mixing and co-producing the new Arms and Sleepers material. He’s been a frequent collaborator since 2016, and the two artists—along with Little People and CNJR—also came together last year to start their own record label Future Archive Recordings. The forthcoming Arms and Sleepers album will be the artist’s first full-length release on the new label.

‘Give Me This’ is a simple yet infectious instrumental track that commands close attention during its three minute running time. Combining synthetic drum sounds with a warm vocal sample and adding heavy bass and synths on top, Arms and Sleepers manages to put together a piece of music that is both energetic and introspective. Ramic explains, “I view this as a more aggressive track for us, and one that gets to the point very quickly. For me, this song is about freely and often irresponsibly satisfying our carnal human desires, especially at a younger age when most of us might feel invincible. But as we get older, things change, our health deteriorates, and second chances are not an option. It’s this sentiment behind a journey from careless youth decision-making to brutal adult realities that I wanted to somehow capture in the song.”

Arms and Sleepers will release their ninth studio album, titled ‘Safe Area Earth’, on January 17, 2020 via Future Archive Recordings. The 1st single ‘Give Me This’ is out on September 13, 2019.

PRE-ORDERS – BLOCKHEAD ‘BUBBLE BATH’

Future Archive Recordings is extremely proud and excited to present new material from Blockhead. The internationally renowned NYC producer has released 10 albums over the past 15 years, including four acclaimed records for Ninja Tune and numerous production jobs including notable works with Aesop Rock.

Bubble Bath is the new album from Blockhead, out November 08, 2019 on Future Archive Recordings. We are excited to offer some really nice physical editions for Bubble Bath, including 2xLP (color and standard black vinyl), CD, Cassette, and various Bundles. They are available for pre-order now and include an immediate download of the lead single On The Bright Side. You can also stream the single via your favorite digital music platform.

CLICK HERE TO PRE-ORDER 2xLP / CD / CASSETTE / DIGITAL / BUNDLES

CLICK HERE TO STREAM LEAD SINGLE ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

Bubble Bath is a record born out of meditative expression and ongoing personal creative challenge, this is key for a producer of Blockhead’s experience. Carried forward is the incredible hook and sample placement skills of classic works such as Uncle Tony’s Coloring Book and Music By Cavelight, but what has emerged is a. overwhelming sense of natural musicality and sophistication:

“I want the music I make to be unaffected by outside influences. I like the idea of working in a bubble… …When I have to describe what I do, to someone, it’s always a little awkward because it starts as “I’m a musician” and as questions come back it gets broken down. “No, I don’t play any instruments” “No, I’m not trained in musical theory” “I make beats”. When it comes down to it, everything I do has always been guided by my ears and sensibility.”

Track Listing:

1) On The Bright Side  [listen]
2) Bubble Bath
3) Spicy Peppercorn
4) The Magical Intimacy Camel
5) It Is Not Yet Time For The Percolator
6) Sugar Daddies’ Lament
7) Over and Out
8) Life Support
9) Moist Ghost
10) Spa Day With Your Moms
11) That’s How He Got Dead
12) Vitamin D Deficiency

PRE-ORDERS – drab ‘digging a hole to fill a hole’

The debut EP from drab, titled digging a hole to fill a holeis now available for pre-order ahead of the May 10, 2019 release date. You can watch the music video for the 1st single from the EP below, titled loveliness, which is available for immediate download when you pre-order the EP. You can also stream the new single on Spotify.

_____________________________________________________________

For the Boston-based artist Andrew G Nault, drab started out as more of a concept; broad strokes of a particular mood to convey sonically. “There’s beauty in the less favorable moments in life,” explains Nault. “Musically my ear has always leaned in that direction. Chalk it up to a small brush with death at a young age, I guess.” Indeed, there is much to be learned from life’s darker moments, and plenty of layers to shed along the way to do so. This is the context that drab operates in. Layered compositions of haze, feel, and movement that shift and progress with subtlety.

Though a newcomer to electronic music production, Nault is a long time student of music in general. With well over a decade of experience as a producer, engineer, and musician, there’s not much he hasn’t tried. Stylistically unafraid, his credits stretch across a multitude of genres (founder of Lesser Glow on Pelagic Records, live drummer for Arms and Sleepers). From Folk to Doom to R&B and more, each venture has left a lasting impression on the next. “drab is another chance for me to challenge myself and explore… a melting pot to throw all of these styles and experiences into and see what comes out,” writes Nault. With the upcoming debut EP, Nault again sets his wheels in motion, continuing to dive deeper into his unconventional combination of influences and an ear for the bittersweet.

digging a hole to fill a hole officially releases on May 10, 2019 via Future Archive Recordings.

01. better
02. strain (feat. Thomas John Cadrin)
