Sekuoia, alias 21-year old Patrick Madsen, is one of the most acclaimed producers to come out of Scandinavia right now and has released two EP’s. Most recent on the hyped Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle. He will be releasing a new single featuring Kill J in the fall of 2014 and debut album in 2015. It’s confirmed that another Danish pop sensation will feature one of the tracks.
Sekuoia combines the organic with the electronic in a dreamy meltdown and has been chosen to support acts like Inc, Active Child, Washed Out, MØ and WhoMadeWho, as well as remixing Tomas Barfod.
His sound consist of dry beats, synth washes and copy/pasted vocals conjure echoes of both dubstep and atmospheric ambient.
The Danish producer is creating delicate electronic music that effortlessly bridges ambient, hip hop and electronica. His painterly soundscapes are equal parts night club after midnight and stalactite cave at dawn.
Adolescent is the moniker of 23-year-old Alex Parish, paying homage in name to the early teenage years responsible for inspiring his unique sound and vision. Much of his initial thought process in production owes to a love of late 90s Trip-Hop and Hip-Hop, in particular Portishead's seminal record 'Dummy'. However it was Parish’s travelled adolescence, coupled with a photographic obsession that inspires the true essence of these carefully sculpted, ethereal and often euphoric masterpieces.
'Golden Halls' - the debut 4-track instrumental E.P, out May 12th via KLDSCP - was conceived following a trip across China, recalling a story of adventure, young love and how one’s feelings toward another may affect the romanticised memory. This theme is represented in both it’s sonic qualities, as well as the moods created tells Parish;
“We can all recall those certain times, places, sights or sounds forever etched in our mind and souls, the ones only reignited by a second coming. Golden Halls was sculpted long after a time I’d spent in China. Lying dormant at home was an old roll of 35mm film from the trip I’d forgotten, which I then developed. I found myself recalling these sensations from the photographs that led me to exploring this as a concept. Each track from Golden Halls directly correlates to a specific photograph I have. A specific memory”
DEEDS, the project of ex I Ching member and producer Rollo Smallcombe. Live he is joined by Kiri Inglis. Between them they create a layered sonic mass of contemporary beats and nostalgic synth waves. Influences range from Andrew Weatherall and Tycho, through to The Aupairs and Startled Insects.
