Sydney City Electronic Music Ensemble

shadowy SCHEME delicately interweaves six modular synthesizers in unexpected ways. The improvised ritual at times evokes vast and lost dimensions, EVP, and psychic drift; while at other times the instruments themselves seem to communicate with an inscrutable machinic telepathy. This is a recording that exists just outside of the known, resonating into the world through oblique angles.

Seapelt is the moniker of Byron Bay down-tempo electronica artist Josh Bassett. His music explores the lines between digital and analog, a space where the human signal blurs with the natural environment.

Incorporating elements of IDM with minimised electronica, modern classical, and ambient – his tracks evoke a sense of nostalgia for the lost sounds of decades past.

Mike E River

Mike E River was not born into a musical family, but his hometown of Hastings, the “most musically sophisticated town in the UK”, provided a solid foundation for his ever-evolving, eclectic sound.

His first release on vinyl was in 1998 on a London based indie label, Later residing in Bristol (famously home to Portishead, Massive Attack, Tricky, among many more) further influenced and refined his musical vision.

Preferring to keep you off balance, River never lets the listener become too comfortable. Drawing you near with hypnotic, intimate beats before breaking you down, hurling you back into the fray – breathless, disorientated, hungry for more. Expansive, intelligent, wickedly immersive.
