Uno Prism’s Debut Hints at Epic Things Ahead

Uno Prism, aka Emma Welsby, had until recently been a employed as a percussionist for hire, playing across Europe for brands and bands, utilising her classical training to demonstrate her skills for the likes of Harley Davidson.

Her first original music releases only hint at this side of her musical talents, with Into Place, her debut track, fitting into several different fields, from nu-jazz to down-tempo to the kind of electronic dance music with smarts, as exemplified by artists such as Nightmares on Wax, DJ Food and Cinematic Orchestra.

It’s music designed to create atmosphere, not to whistle along to (though you’re more than welcome to try); it pretty much insists the listener sits down to listen to, or at least feed from in some kind of subliminally spiritual way. Emma’s vocals, though extremely assured and appropriately wistful, feel almost unnecessary, or at least just adding to the existing layers and textures.

It perhaps says a lot that Emma’s usual go-to instrument is the vibraphone, not an especially  “trendy” member of the orchestra but one which offers a very unique tone, sometimes almost imperceptible but able to transmit, as the name suggests, vibrations which an audience feels as much as hears. By using fundamental understandings of her instrument, as well as the years spent as part large orchestras, Uno Prism’s track has a majestic feel to it – there’s no sense that it’s following well-travelled tropes or simply aiming to please by going taking the easy options, it’s controlled electro-jazz feel is both unpredictable yet accomplished enough not to put off those who are new to the idea of combining different styles and techniques. A shame only one track is available to judge – well worth keeping an eye on.

Dance Music Comes of Age – Luuk Lagrange’s “Invisible”

After years of being a byword for throwaway singles and a form of music which relied more on your ability to be able to work out which lead fits in which socket than musical skill. Now, or more accurately in the recent past, a breed of dance music producers has emerged which goes some considerable distance to show that artistry, skill and emotion have a significant role to play in the genre.

Symptomatic is Luuk Lagrange’s “Invisible”, which takes a leaf out of Sigma’s book and combines drum n bass with a more thoughtful structure, incorporating far more melody than you might ordinarily associate with it. “Invisible” is commercial yet  has a real musicality and dance music understanding that it could lead to much bigger things.

A call to anyone and everyone to be who you want to be, and be proud of it.

Nej!Las Set To Release Brand New EP After Charity Work

 

Working on Mega Techno/Electro House tunes are second nature to American Musician Nej!Las, but this story has a different twist.

Nej!Las (her name is a semi-reversal of her given name of Jen Sal), a US based artist who founded a charity called Global Health Conscious, which has donated $2.5 million worth of medical aid to United Nation refugee camps across the Middle East, is now set to release a dark techno EP in November. Nej!Las has drawn from her experiences and past in which she had lived in two different countries, as well as eight different cities, while also having music already a prominent feature in her family with her father being a highly talented drummer, Nej!Las has broken into the Chicago Techno scene.

Jen has also been able to use her broad love for different musical composers, including Hans Zimmer, Boards of Canada and Deadmau5. This adds up to make a musically intriguing combination.

Modiwo – Saving the World Through Music and Apples!

Confounding expectations, Modiwo have emerged from the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains to become one of the country’s breakout musical success stories, whilst also giving their time to support charity projects around the world. Initially forming in order to provide entertainment for local orphanages and retirement projects, demand for the band’s music grew to such a scale that they agreed to become a band in their own right.

Joining together musical forces from Romania, Ukraine, Moldova and Hungary, their unique anthemic dream-pop sound is embellished in their live shows with alpine horns, didgeridoos, and shakuhachi solos. Their latest track, “Never Give Up”, is an achingly blissful pillow of sunshine which brings to mind all the dreamiest elements of The Beloved.

Watch the video to Never Give Up here:

Their work for charities has also seen them charge entry fees to their gigs in donations of fruit instead of cash – all the proceeds going to local orphanages.

M3staken finishes trilogy with ‘Rain’

cover art

Hailing from South Carolina, concept artist M3staken (M3) has ended his trilogy of albums with Rain. After the releases of Apex and Water Colors, which announced the eccentric style of M3 to the world, he has continued in much the same vein with the latest record.

Although Apex experimented with a hint of classical piano, juxtaposed with M3staken’s fracturing producer style, the second and third records focus on complicated beats and a haunting ambience.

Although M3staken takes inspiration from contemporary acts such as Joey Bada$$, Jamie XX and FKA Twigs, these influences are mere hints that the talented young producer draws upon when concocting his complex style of music.

As the last piece of M3’s trilogy, he notes that this is the album that has meant the most to him due to its conclusive nature that seems to summarise his style. M3 commented that Rain is ‘loosely connected to my two previous works and it is primarily a collection of my personal favourite songs’.
