In Review: Majestique – Overload EP

Published

Majestique – Overload EP
Coming off the back of the widespread success of previous collection ‘Science Of The Heart’ comes the latest EP from electronic duo Majestique – who bring a bit of 80’s magic to their sounds of now. Once again to be released through the effortlessly cool, quality platform that is Dirty Soul Recordings, ‘Overload’ will land on September 23rd.

Spanning four tracks in length and piling on atmospheric and melodic energy throughout, the hazy trickles of ‘Moonlight’ kick-start this tracklist. With gliding analogue chords moving against mere snatches of vocals, this one grows with groove and subtle funk elements.

Published

kove
Kove is back with the latest installment of his club-focused EP series, ‘Nightfires’. Using the series to delve deeper into a pure, musical sound, Kove says of his latest EP, “I wanted to take inspiration from my rock roots, trying to play as many parts as possible on the guitar or bass, and bringing more aggression into the tunes. I’ve also tried to branch out lyrically, incorporating some darker themes. “

‘Nightfires Vol.1’, landed with a bang back in April and gained strong, specialist support across BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. ‘Vol. 2’ out now, is further evidence of Kove’s unique and breath-taking diversity, a talent who continues to defy musical boundaries and garner widespread support from his peers.

In Review: åMBe – ‘Enemy of the People’ EP

In Review: åMBe - 'Enemy of the People' EP
The haunting and futuristic music from the ‘Enemy of the People’ EP by åMBe, will surprise more than one! Born in a small village in Russia, and being keen on music since she was a child, allowed her to become a skilful artist. I would even call her as the new promising icon of the Indie/Electronica scene. The ‘Enemy of the People’ EP features a total of eight tracks, and it will be released officially in late September. She’s definitely a creative lady with out-of-the-box ideas… For the most part, the EP is made of avant-garde songs, and you will love her style if you’re also a fan of Bjork or Kate Bush. Here’s the world-exclusive track-by-track review:

1 – IDCNM (I Don’t Care No More)  Let’s all take an experimental musical journey with åMBe. You’ll be fascinated in the way she combines the quasi-operatic soprano female vocals with delicacy across the entire song. (Available now via SoundCloud)

2 – Under Waterskin Everything flows with åMBe’s sensual singing on this particular tune. Integrating a slow tempo that creates also a very organic beauty, and making you feel in a new dimension.

3 – Ache Here she performs her music in a loose way, and the song could be catalogued as radio-friendly. I’m loving the freshness of this Indie-Pop track.

4 – Peeler  In my opinion, this song has a dark touch. A provocative mix of drama and in general it will leave you feeling as if walls are closing in on you. Bringing curious experimentalism directly to our ears.

5 – Little Grain I like åMBe’s expressive voice along with the guitar chords. What a tune! The artist showcases a refreshingly innovative style full of erotism.

6 – Monster (mini.mono.opera) Once again, I love the vocal technique that makes her sound like a professional opera singer + the electronic melodic rhythms is a powerful advantage. At this point she has proven to be extremely talented.

7 – Of Your Crimes A song that starts out with lovely violin notes. It could perfectly be a James Bond theme song. So far, this is another valuable and strong track off the ‘Enemy of the People’ EP that would be a great promotional single and this is of course my favorite one!

8 – I Don’t Care No More (acoustic) An alternative version, where we can appreciate clearer lyrics and her vocal range as well. Overall, a highly recommended EP from a talented artist. A voice we are lucky to have! This material showed me there’s more to music than four-to-the-floor dance music beats.
