AR Ferdinand shares new track Lately (ft. Daphne) from debut album ‘Wild Fiction’

‘Lately‘ begins with a smooth and jazzy rhodes, before being introduced to the honey cut vocals of Daphne. Blended with hip-hop drums, synthesizers and a groovy bass it makes for an interesting collaboration.

Fernando Arroyo, aka AR Ferdinand, starts us with this particular single for his upcoming debut LP, “Wild Fiction”. Due in March, we expect it to be filled with fresh and innovative song.

“I started to work on the idea for Lately after a vacation on my favorite place on earth, Lake Coatepeque. Having spent so much time there, I feel like I’m in paradise surrounded by my friends everytime.” – AR Ferdinand

Fernando sent the song idea to Daphne on a late Sunday night, she immediately felt a connection to the song and they started working together. After a few weeks the song took a more complex form, aptly it took the name “Lately”

“’Lately” is one of the many tastes that the album has to offer, I think it’s a perfect representation of what I’ve been working on for the past 3 years. – AR Ferdinand

Available January 17th via Wubadubdub.

Jerry Bouthier announces ‘Yeah! (DJ Tools #1)

Continental’s own A&R and multi-tasking, all around vibe meister DJ drops his debut solo single ‘Yeah!’, the send off to his no-nonsense DJ Tools series on the label.

Pioneer of the Parisian electronic scene, long relocated to London, Jerry Bouthier joins passionately the dot between music and fashion. The resident dj of east London’s infamous and now defunct BoomBox night knows a good tune when he hears one as his Continental label’s output testifies. His celebrated dj mixes for Kitsuné, Emerald & Doreen and his own Heart & Soul series are captivating labours of love that have attracted followers the world over. His stylish upbeat dj sets, blending genres and everything else fancied by this iconoclast Frenchman, never fail to rock the party from one continent to another.

Also a sound-designer for fashion, his post-modern soundtracks for Vivienne Westwood – seamlessly merging classical into world music, punk into cosmic disco and more – have become the stuff of legends. In the studio, he produces as JBAG – his baleariscopop project with Andrea Gorgerino – together they’ve released 4 singles (inc. tropical anthem ‘Mogadisco’) and remixed Two Door Cinema Club, RÜFÜS, Ladyhawke… however it’s now time for a new recording chapter.

Jerry explains why he’s never released a record under his own name before:
“I come from a band/group background and as long as I wasn’t producing tunes strictly on my own, it didn’t seem fair to the other musicians involved in the creative process with me. That’s why we started JBAG for instance, the contribution of my musical sidekick Andrea Gorgerino is huge, it wouldn’t have made sense to release our stuff as Jerry Bouthier…
With time I’ve acquired confidence and felt I could produce some decent DJ tunes on my own, the kind of funky, housey stuff I play in my sets, nothing as musical or song-led as JBAG – it wouldn’t be fun to do the same thing. The idea of delivering a series of DJ Tools soon came to me, you know simple yet effective tracks that work the dancefloor well without fuss…
So I locked myself in the studio with a pile of old vinyl and came up with ‘Yeah!’, my first attempt at going back to house basics, fusing the soulful vocals of yesterday’s NYC dancefloors to the more underground, bassline vibe of London.”
On the remix front Barcelona duo Mordisco, takes the deep house route with a sensual chugger that’ll work its wonders in the early hours. Next another duo, Tel Aviv’s B1ZB1Z, turns out a dreamy disco reinterpretation spiced-up by a zest of indie.

Bearoid – ‘Enemy’

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk7KBdhkj

Barcelonian electronic-pop artist Bearoid shares his daring new single ‘Enemy’, sporting a playful synth melody and pansexual fantasies.

“It’s a song about pansexuality. It’s dark as a room at night, but full of love and warmth. I was in the train looking at people thinking of how far we are from the people we don’t know; we share space and time but we’re not allowed to trust each other. I then started imagining a random girl and I making out, we just felt attracted to each other. That gave me a really strong feeling of freedom and sexuality, and I imagined everyone around making out, forgetting about mental barriers.” – Bearoid

Using strong, layered synths, Bearoid creates a track that is equal parts playful and sexual. Samples of arcade-game synths colour the song with an endearing cheekiness, but when the chorus hits, it’s all about a strong, pulsating beat and edgy, metallic synths.

And then there’s Bearoid’s vocals; strong and flirtatious, it leaps out against the strong instrumentals allowing him to lyrically explore an intriguing and bold topic. In a world where we are more connected to technology than humans, Bearoid’s playfully taps into something deeper and more meaningful — a rarity in electronic music.

Soundcloud: soundcloud.com/bearoid/enemy

Accompanying the single is a music video which grabs the idea of sexuality between the unknown, and takes it to the universe of inanimate objects, where things that are not supposed to go together get intimate. You can see the beauty in the love between elements that do not fit one another, without judging if it’s wrong or right, normal or strange.

“Love is shapeless and can be represented by any interaction between two elements, this way we proof that it’s only our fears that move us away from other people that we could love this or that way” – Bearoid

‘Enemy’ is available now on iTunes & Spotify though La Belle Records, and over the coming weeks it will be accompanied by a music video and a remix from fellow Barcelonian InnerCut.

Bearoid is also excited to announce that he has been invited to play at Eurosonic Noorderslag in January 2017.

Nick Pes – Sunsets [new single & music video]

Sydney artist Nick Pes shares his latest s ingle ‘Sunsets’ along side a visceral, sombre music video. The synth-pop track takes inspiration from natures daily ritual — the sunset — and the painful breakdown of a relationship.

“The thing about a sunset is that one happens every single day, some more amazing than then next but daily nonetheless – but if you allow yourself to experience it can feel like the most beautiful and important moment in the world. There’s a sadness because it’s an ending but it also marks a beginning. You can’t stop it from happening so you just have to go with it.” – Nick Pes

Starting off slow and pensive, the futurist-synths coupled with a tight, twangy bass guitar make for an addictive track; a slow-burning groover, that is equal parts delicate and zealous. A house-infused bass line picks the up pace of the track, creating a sense of urgency and plea; of last light and hope.

The accompanying music video which was produced and directed by Josh Harris (Welcome The Machines) was inspired by cult sci-fi and Neo Noir films. The video also explores the challenges that modern and future relationships face.

“We wanted to explore how science and technology will effect our relationships in the future. What additional ethical and emotional challenges will we face? Josh came up with the idea of two lovers who decide to be cryogenically frozen together, and one backs out at the last minute.” – Nick Pes

Flatwound – This Can Be Love [classic disco-house treat]

Step out onto the dance-floor and let your body move to the classic disco-house sounds of ‘‘This Can Be Love’, the brand new single from Australian duo Flatwound.

‘This Can Be Love’ was born out of Flatwound’s (Jack Prest & C.J.Soulman) mutual love for all things outer space and disco related. It’s also just the first taste of their upcoming third album, ‘This Electronic Species’.

“I really wanted to have a joyous jamming track to help celebrate our first release in a while, so I sent this groove to Jack who then nailed the lyric and vamped the chorus, before working in an angular synth-line using a skank guitar groove to create the notes…through “technology”. A few minor tweaks later and the musical answer was born. From there we decided it needed a positive name to go with it” – C.J.Soulman

‘This Can Be Love’ sees Flatwound blending the live-bass sound & style of Chic with an incredibly irresistible French disco-house groove, and a looped 90’s inspired vocal that bubbles its way throughout the track with a hypnotic grace – this track was born to be played loud.

Flatwound’s new album ‘This Electronic Species’ isn’t due out until 2017, however ‘This Can Be Love’ is available now on iTunes & Spotify, or you can grab a free download via Flatwound‘s soundcloud page.
