 a2260593128_10

Call of Ancient Love is the brand new album from Russian multi-lingual spiritualist and musician Stan Gemes.  Its limited edition physical copy sees the artist offering more than simply a sonic experience – also incorporating elements of touch, feel and taste to bring an inventive multi-sensory experience.

 

The album is packaged into five compartments, each compartment loaded with goodies relating to one of five elements: fire, water, earth, air and space.

 

The elements reflect the artist’s own worldly outlook, having journeyed all around the globe, soaking up spiritual experiences along the way.

 

The elements also reflect the worldly themes of the music, which sees Stan blending rock with traditional and tribal sounds from around the globe including Asian flutes, African percussion, Indian choirs and Hispanic guitars.

Introducing 100 Fables

Led by Lindsey Liora, 100 Fables are a unique band mixing their passion for the 80s with a post punk electronic sound. Their inspirations Blondie, The Cars and The Killers have a clear impact on their music but their sound isn’t comparable.

100 Fables impressively won the title of European Hard Rock Cafe’s global Hard Rock Rising winner and have gained international attention from the likes of The Sun “Single ‘Future Girl’ is a fresh blast of edgy pop” and Sunday Mail “It’s great to see a young band step it up…that confirms them as one of the most exciting new bands in the country”.

What does the future hold for 100 Fables then?  Lindsey says:  “Life is great. We’re meeting a bunch of wonderful people, sharing stages with humble, talented musicians with big plans for the end of summer. Looking back on what we’ve already achieved is a dream considering we haven’t even been together a year yet. You can’t predict the future but you can guarantee to hear and see more from 100 Fables.”

Intimate new EP Ibrahim from The Great Divide

New-Zealand-born, London-based film composer Gerald Clark (aka The Great Divide) teams up with an eclectic mix of artists, including the legendary Robert Wyatt, to bring this impressive and intimate new EP Ibrahim.

The EP’s three pensive and melancholic tracks each explore the feeling of being caught up between the ‘old world’ to and the new, feeling a loyalty to the traditions of the past, but unable to fully embrace the value system of the present.

Smoking New Single From Jo Cooper Set To Spread Like ‘Wildfire’

capture

Having performed on Australia’s number 1 breakfast show ‘The Morning Show’ as well as performing for Rugby League team The South Sydney Rabbitohs during half-time, Sydney singer/songwriter is superseding her previous brilliant single ‘Touch the Sky’ with ‘Wildfire’ and Cavo’s remix of ‘Wildfire’.

Giving the likes of Jess Glynne and Katie Perry a run for their money Jo Cooper’s high energy and uplifting ‘Wildfire’ sports glorious house pads and a deep harmonious piano underpinning the chords.

You cannot help but fall in love with Jo, one of those personalities that makes you smile when she’s around. Jo’s voice is beautiful and full of energy and her talent is only that of a star in the making’Carmelo Pizzino (Dancing With The Stars)

Hear the new track here: 

Taking the advice given to her personally by Ed Sheeran whilst she was volunteering at an Australian Radio station, Jo has taken a bit longer to release her debut album making sure it felt right to her and we are glad she did! Featuring an incredible house remix produced by Cavo sees the single being pushed to a more dance festival orientated vibe bringing out the already hugely uplifting nature of the track.

This single follows the success of her 2013 song ‘Stupid Boy’, a track which gained international attention with its Ministry of Sound house remix. Produced by London electronic duo Hoxton Whores, the remix climbed into the top 100 reaching 20 on UK’s Music Week Club Charts.

In 2014 Jo released her highly anticipated debut EP, Running Free, along with her empowering single ‘Don’t Turn Back’, skilfully tackling the heavy topic of domestic abuse.
