Jimmy Spoon's third release was written in collaboration with American producer #LBN667. #ambient sounds, tending to future garage and #lo-fi roughness is a recognisable feature of LBN667. Having combining an unusual singing manner for electronic music and LBN667's textures from beyond, Jimmy Spoon made a mix that is hard to describe. There are some strong emotions in the "Flow", these emotions develop into a solid conceptual story. It's a deep and lyrical yet #experimental work. It takes five tracks to take a listener through various layers and themes such as human relations and parallel worlds. With this record Jimmy got one step closer to his own sounding - nothing is restraining his singing tending to bluesy ardor and gothic detachment at the same time. #UltraVague

After two successful LP’s «Million Years Of Sorrow» and «The End Of Harmony» Ultra Vague Recordings (UVR) is glad to present «Wound Theory. Act I: Ghost», a new release by Sorrow Leads To Salvation, Kiev based electronic project. It’s a first part of a conceptual EP’s series sharing one plot and sounding, yet SLTS keeps looking for new forms for his musical ideas embodiment. The author describes it as a gloomy and melancholic fairytale about dark corners, ghosts and forgotten gods.

This is a quick note about two recent releases, one was done as a support release for our partner label from Belarus, Ezhevika. The owner of Ezhevika is well-known to you as our roster artist Diamos Roll. So, on 30 August we did this split release of
Ezhevika together with Ultra Vague Recordings present a split release by a Belarusian producer Alexander (That Sky) and a Moscow beat-maker Yaroslav (Noise Beats).
“We followed our favorite conception and recorded as much live instruments as we were able to: bass, guitar, acoustic, drums, piano and even violin in the most emotional track of the album Remember. Our most ambitious experiment is Great Hoax. It’s smooth, but at the same time very rhythmic, so we even put it through a test at the morning jogging! The album endures 20 minutes and something. We tried to make “compact” tracks, so that listeners won’t be able to understand the whole complexity and attraction straight away. You need to listen to this album attentively!” http://fb.com/thatskyour http://soundcloud.com/thatsky http://thatsky.bandcamp.com http://vk.com/thatsky
Tree Bosier is a one-man project of Max Anant'ev. Broken hip-hop rhythm in the basis and downtempo, ambient, lo-fi, trip-hop along with nu jazz on top, that's the sound of it. Anchoring Effect is a pretty interesting thing in pshychology. Sometimes you sit in your room or in the office or wondering through the forest, looking for mushrooms or just running down the street chasing a bus. There is a change of light, a smell of perfume or a music from some old TV show and everything is changing right away. You feel calm and nostalgic. I wish I could feel it more often in life, but it seems to me the only ones managed to control it are the capitalists trying to sell us things through TV commercials and billboards. - Max Anant'ev http://fb.com/pages/Tree-Bosier/175706789155959 http://uvrecordings.com

If you are a big fan of releases of such labels as Ninja Tune or Warp this work would definitly fit your taste. Diamos Roll is a frontman of CherryVata, famous trip-hop, dancehall, live electronic band from Minsk, BY
Diamos Roll is the stage-name of a well-known Belarusian keyboard player, who is usually busy with the ensemble CherryVata. He is, we should point out, not the only member to prefer a moniker to whatever's written in his passport. CherryVata together, with real and imagined identities, have been publishing material on a regular basis since 2004, and "Roll" is usually credited with managerial responsibilities. It's not surprising, therefore, that he might ponder the appeal of a solo venture from time to time, as something of a sabbatical. And so, in the multiple guises of composer, sound designer, and producer, he now announces a five-track, twenty-three minute mini-album, "Rosecode." It appears not only in the context of DR's professional work with CherryVata, but also against the backdrop of his (entire) biography. In other words, he traces the genesis of these new tracks to his childhood. "When Diamos Roll was a little boy, there was always a great deal of music around. The sounds of jazz, rock, and classical recordings at home were constant. As a student, he would later delve into electronic music, devouring anything he could find. At the same time, he began DJ-ing with cassettes and CDs."
That healthy diversity of styles and performative experience would be reflected in initial solo recordings. "DR took his first, eclectic steps within a wide range of styles - all the way from trip-hop and jazz to rock or techno." That same patchwork aesthetic continues in "Rosecode," with a particular penchant for "instrumental hip-hop, funk, and nu-jazz." The artwork helps to set the stage for some appealing and often striking combinations.
A solo project, of course, makes any such generic infidelity a lot simpler: nobody needs to be persuaded. On a related, but more pragmatic level, Diamos Roll has told the Belarusian press that touring as a one-man band should also be considerably easier. It's cheaper than wayfaring with an entire collective - and one is always open to last-minute, voluntary changes in the schedule. Solitude therefore has considerable benefits in a poor economic climate. - (FarFromMoscow text)
[RU] "Я понял, как я хочу проявить свою творческую идею. Я люблю джаз, фанк и различную «живую» музыку, но я не могу без электронного скрежета и мощи электроники. Поэтому стараюсь впитывать и передавать настроения и ощущения солнца, ветра, моря, людей, звука красивых инструментов, пропуская через себя, себя как диджея и музыканта, но через холод электронного звука. Мне нравятся противоречия и эклектика, я стараюсь показать и отобразить в музыке радость через некоторую монотонность и жесткость своей электроники. И я никогда не задаюсь целью получить привязку к стилю или получить звук модный, я выражаю то, что здесь и сейчас. Музыка – это проекция жизни на звук”
This trio was founded in Novi Sad, Serbia in 2010. Smooth and sophisticated ambience of jazz and soul with the sharpness of modern beats. Catchy melodies, played over the slow jazzy chord progressions, repeating through the simple arrangements. Rhodes, hammond or mellotron combined with sampled drums and lo-fi guitars create chill and relaxing atmosphere. Finally, a bright, soft female voice for total enjoyment.
Трио monoLTD образовалось в 2010 году в городе Нови-Сад, Сербия. В их творчестве мягкая изысканность джаза и соул музыки сочетается с современными электронными ритмами. Незамутненный женский вокал, мелодии легко запомнить, а аранжировки легки и прозрачны. Мы с удовольствием выпускаем их первый мини-альбом Dissloved.
