DRAMAS have skillfully mastered the art of the in-between: Between a
heavy heart and the knowledge that everything changes, that nothing
stands still. Formed in 2016, the boundary-pushing art pop duo presented a big and
emotional debut with their album »Nothing Is Permanent« (2018). In early 2021 DRAMAS will return with their second longplayer - meanwhile the duo amazes us with their new single »Bloodbath« – accompanied by a powerful music video directedd by Rupert Höller.
Following the release of his powerful and dark solo albums "Je suis le Ténébreux" (2016) and "Paradise Lost" (2018) London-based avantgarde musician Christopher James Chaplin presented his impressive third solo work "M" this year. It's the final part of a trilogy, a multi-layered album about change and transformation, featuring Finley Quaye, Mira Lu Kovacs and Aurelia Thierrée as guest artists. In October Chaplin will release "Enosh", a first precursor to the new album project "10 Patriarchs" (coming
Berlin based sound artist and composer Jana Irmert is delving in the spheres of film sound, electroacoustic composition and
audiovisual installation art. Following appearances at international festivals and exhibitions she released her acclaimed albums "End of absence" (2016) and "FLOOD" (2018). In 2019 she received the German Documentary Film Music Award. An EP "Cusp" (a collection of compositions taken from the soundtrack) has been released in January 2020 followed by "Everything minus all" – a beautiful meditation about isolation and connection. A new album is coming in 2021.
Multi-instrumentalist and electronic producer Peter Zirbs has
released recordings under numerous pseudonyms, produced and remixed various artists, and
scored a range of experimental films. In 2018 he finally stepped into the
spotlight as a solo artist and released his album debut »What if we don't exist?«. "The closest and most apt sonic comparison for "What If We Don’t
Exist?" would be David Bowie’s Low, with its mixture of futurist
Synth-Pop and graceful ambient music" (by Forestpunk). A new EP »On A Beautiful Day« was released in August 2020 including "Locked In" (feat. former Archive frontman Craig Walker) and "Wasted" (feat. Loretta Who).
Loretta Who - a fascinating, charismatic singer and artist with her stunning solo debut EP release 'Virtue' - including the singles 'All Over Me‘ and 'Virtue'. Following successful collaborations with artists such as
Albin Janoska (SOHN) and Hubert Mauracher (Mauracher) she now presents
her own distinctive musical microcosm. In 2020 she will return with new material of her own and being a part of a newly founded all-star collective. More details coming soon.
Icelandic electronic music trio Stereo Hypnosis and British experimental musician and avantgarde composer Christopher Chaplin
have played a number of concerts together in recent years. During that
time, the idea of recording an album based on these live electronic
improvisations began to emerge. In the summer of 2018 a fully equipped
recording studio was set up in the town of Hvammstangi in northern
Iceland, where the album »Bjarmi« was recorded live.
We are very excited to announce our latest signing. Former Archive
frontman and recent Booka Shade collaborator Craig Walker will reinvent himself with a brilliant and
powerful new solo EP »The Hurt«, due out in June 2019 - his first solo release in ten years. Living in a
city with an electronic heartbeat has undoubtedly influenced Craig as a
writer and composer.
