João Pedro Costa is a portuguese beat-maker based in Utrecht producing, under the moniker of LASERS, ghostly ambience befitting gelid wistfulness, dark winters and biting chill inspired by musicians as Boards of Canada or Eskmo. Here’s the new track, Seed.
Brilliant EP from Kiev-based producer Ruslan Gordikov.
Stray Cat throws the listener straight into a lush audial urban environment (also remixed by Decamber and Radkovski). Among Crowd is the highlight of the EP: tasteful, skippy garage with Burial influenced gut-churning bass. Stiff slows things down to broken, organic rhythms.
MSK.fm is the brainchild of Antonino Musco, italian-born producer, musician and radio host now based in San Francisco.
The City and the Bay inspired the 6 tracks of the EP, a blend of urban, funk, electronic, downtempo and trip-hop, influenced by the love of world music, the eclectic taste of Antonino and the international melting pot of the line-up that includes NYC guitarist Andy Averbuch (The Joe Bataan Band, Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra), brazilian trumpet maestro Leandro Joaquim (Marcos Valle, Lucas Santana, etc), italian cellist Stefano Di Leginio and the SF rising stars Christopher Burch, Jessy Manuel, Hanna Rifkin on vocals/lyrics.
Made of a balance of global musicians and local singers, MadeInSF EP was composed, recorded, mixed and produced by Antonino Musco, who also plays keys, guitars, sampler, drums and percussions. The experienced engineer Mark Pistel (Meat Beat Manifesto, Hercules & Love Affair) mastered the EP at Room Five Studio.
