Noisey Talks with the Cholo Goth Pioneers Prayers in New Episode of “Noisey Meets”


LOS ANGELES, CA (May 20, 2015) – VICE’s music and culture channel Noisey is excited to release “Noisey Meets: Prayers.” The latest installment in the “Noisey Meets” series, the episode features an in-depth interview with the pioneering electronic/industrial “cholo goth” duo Prayers.

Formed in 2013, Prayers have spent the last two years transforming the sound and look of modern goth music with vocalist Leafar Seyer and producer Dave Parley at the helm. Both Mexican immigrants, the duo explain how they don’t fit into the cholo or goth scenes, how they ended up joining their San Diego gang, and how their music is about brotherhood.

VICE started Noisey back in 2011, criss-crossing the globe documenting the year in music from heavy-hitters to tiny garage bands who usually play for their girlfriends and moms. Since then, it has grown into one of the most unique and successful video-driven music sites on the planet. In 2012, Noisey teamed with YouTube as a premium content provider, and built out a series of shows that take a completely fresh take on the world of music. As an editorial resource, reaches millions of people a month, and has become a go-to source for weird music news, artist-sourced content, and VICE’s signature offbeat coverage. Noisey throws parties and shows worldwide, hosts innovative online listening parties for new records, and produces videos for the best artists in the world, like MIA, Die Antwoord, A$AP Rocky, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Noisey is more than just a music site—music is the lens with which we explore youth culture all over the world.

Listen to Claptone’s new single “Dear Life”

‘Dear Life’ is the next chapter for Claptone and the second glimpse of his first full-length set for release in Autumn 2015. The mysterious enigma with the golden mask has gone from strength to strength of late, following an acclaimed BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, a Beatport chart-topping smash remix of Gregory Porter and an incredible live show at the Miami Ultra Music Festival.

The single breaks new ground for Claptone as he delves deeper into songwriting. This time he is reunited with French singer Jaw (1/3 of production trio dOP) with whom he previously worked on ’No Eyes’, a big record for him back in 2013 on the notorious Berlin House label Exploited. In the new offering ‘Dear Life’ Claptone has created a spellbinding dance floor ready anthem that’ll sound just as good on your home stereo.

The masked figure recently shared teaser ‘The Music Got Me’, the first taste of the album and a track which went on to reach the top 5 on Beatport’s deep house chart, as did B-side Forest of Love. For the club heads, Claptone and Jaw deliver a second cut ‘Secret Lover’, a track packed with raw funk and a highlight of his recent Essential Mix.

‘Dear Life’ is available for purchase from May 22nd.

Max Graham says goodbye to Rebrand Records and launches new label, Cycles

It is after much thought that I’ve decided to say goodbye to my record label, Rebrand Records, and Armada as its distributor.

Conceived in 2004 with the idea of creating a family of like-minded artists, I can look back and say it was an amazing experience and we achieved exactly that. Huge thanks to the entire team at Armada for backing the label and helping it grow and the talented artists we featured, specifically my great friends Protoculture and Solid Stone who helped create the sound that Rebrand was so known for.

With that, I introduce the next step: my new imprint, Cycles.

Like its successful namesake Cycles Radio, Cycles the record label will encompass a much broader sound with a wide variety of true Progressive House and Techno with melodic influences–almost a return to the days when Trance had an underground groove and genres were not as defined as they are today. I’m very excited to showcase so much more amazing music from guys like Solid Stone (whose sound has evolved considerably since the earlier Rebrand days) and the incredibly talented Tim Penner, as well as many others already lined up for releases.

Along with the label, we are planning “CyclesLive” events which will be designed to celebrate the talent the show has to offer. I’m very excited to move forward with this new phase and bring everything under the one banner of Cycles.

The label’s first release in spring 2015 will be my own new single, “Redemption,” which carries amazing remixes by Alex Di Stefano, Tim Penner and Solid Stone who each premiered their version during Cycles 200 Live back in April in New York City.

I cannot wait to share this new song with you–along with the many other amazing releases we have on deck– as we embark on the next chapter of the Cycles journey together. – Max Graham
