Producers HAELIUM and Kasztan have teamed up to create a new single ‘DOR’. The collaboration has been released under Stemina Recordings, a brand-new record label that Kasztan is spearheading, and sees the two artists pour their creativity into an emotive record that progresses from a bare-boned, percussive beginning to a fleshed-out, multi-layered climax, undergoing a lifetime of growth in just under 4 minutes.

Stream / Download: HAELIUM x Kasztan – ‘DOR’

An award-winning musician, Kasztan is a French Electronic producer who has toured with the French music group M83. More than a stage moniker, he has composed music for the screen, scoring The Illusionists documentary among other televised projects. 

HAELIUM, also of French origin, is both a producer and classically trained pianist. It is unsurprising that he names composer and fellow friend of the keys Jon Hopkins as a wellspring from which he draws inspiration. 

Kasztan tells us about the debut of the label and more, saying, “My manager and I decided to launch this new label Stemina Recordings. I’m super happy that the first release is a collaborative work with Gabriel/Haelium. I love his work”.

Dynamic producer Sleepy Tom dropped an amazing title track, ‘This Thing Called Life’, under  MNRK Music Group from his upcoming EP This Thing Called Life. The producer has worked with great artists in the likes of  Grandtheft and Anna Lunoe to name a few. The Vancouver-based musician Cam Tatham alias Sleepy Tom is a force to be reckoned with.

Speaking of forces, ‘This Thing Called Life’ takes a plunge powerfully into the arena of the disco sound. The plays and intermingling of the piano notes, the electric guitar and the breathy vocals take euphoric joys to the brink of faint-heartedness. The lyrics transport the listener to a bliss point where time stands still. ‘This Thing Called Life’ is reminiscent of the excellent sound of Purple Disco Machine.

Sleepy Tom tells us a bit about his intended ambition whilst making the single: “With ‘This Thing Called Life’, I wanted to make a collection of songs that were going to lift me out of my funk. I was looking for music that could satisfy my club cravings, while also leaving room for melody––disco!”

Multi-talented artist Russell Louder has shared their latest single ‘Come Around’ on the 16th of September under Lisbon Lux Records The Tiohtià:ke, Montreal, Canada-based, Russell Louder has many talents that include songwriting, producing, and performing. 

Stream / Download: ‘Come Around’

The latest single is breathtakingly beautiful and memorable. The vocals are determined, sharp and robust like an anthem of soldiers going to war. The synthesis of the piano, the guitar, the vocals and the beat with striking elements of electronic produces a sound that is wonderfully progressive. The lyrics are about audacious conversations about blurring lines of accountability that are slightly dark but at the same time incredibly humorous. The artist’s lyrical mental vantage point is outstanding. 

Russell Louder tells us eloquently the influences and paradigms surrounding the making of the single: “Come Around is a pop sharp-tongued symphonic play-by-play of a duplicitous figure in my life reeling me into their web of deceit. Instead of analyzing my experience, I used the writing of the song as a space for imagining what the other could have been thinking or strategizing”.

Music producer Holo has delighted the avid electronica listener once again with his charismatic and laidback energy on his latest song offering ‘In Limbo’. A true connoisseur of electronics, the music producer crafts his sound around his feelings rather than feeling tied down to one key sound. To many people’s surprise, the producer has also admitted he is not strictly inspired by traditionally electronic musicians, citing names like alternative band Radiohead and The Beatles as some of his key inspirations. If you want to hear more from this fresh talent, stay tuned as he plans to release an EP also titled In Limbo next month via Houseum.

Stream / Download: ‘In Limbo’ single

In an interview with Chill Music, the producer shared: “I think the common thread within my music is an emphasis on texture, melody, and harmony primarily. I really care about which sounds I pick, as I want to create a distinct atmosphere for the track to live in… almost like decorating a room. Other signatures I think of are simple drum parts, live guitar, bass playing, the use of unusual samples, and lots of reverb.”

Certainly a quirky and imaginative fellow as his response above suggests, Holo continues to impress us with every single release he shares with us. ‘In Limbo’ shares the producer’s versatility with panache and an “effortlessly” spaced out sound that blurs genre expectations and is an overall wholesomely mellow track for the stressed or elated to enjoy simultaneously. 

‘In Limbo’ features on the Spotify playlist
