“A rare talent” (Clash)

"The latest offering from the elusive producer is a gloriously catchy track that’s sure to earn a firm place on your summer playlist." (Notion Magazine)

"SchulKid, a London-based producer and songwriter, presents what I like to call the sound of the future. I would love the music in 2 or 3 years to be just like ‘Wildest Promise’ - interesting, high-quality, surprising, and fresh." (Queen Beetch)

"One of the most strange yet fun tracks you'll hear" (Indie Shuffle)

 

SCHULKID
LA LA LAVE feat.
I AM HARLEQUIN

ARTIST: Schulkid / TITLE: La La Lave feat. I Am Harlequin
RELEASE: June 30th / GENRE: Orchestral Pop
LABEL: Stop Being Cute / DISTRIBUTION: Ingrooves

StartSelection:0000000199 EndSelection:0000002365 London-based elusive electro-pop artist SchulKid will be releasing his first EP Physical Education on 30th July later this year, following the success of his previous releases Wildest Promise feat. Valair and Slow Dancing also featuring Valair, which received wide praise from the likes of Clash, Indie Shuffle and Music Ninja.

The first single from the EP, Love Like This feat Tara Priya, was released in April to widespread acclaim, with La La Lave being the 2nd single. The intoxicating nature of the tracks set the tone for the whole EP, guaranteeing that SchulKid’s will be the sound of summer 2016.

SchulKid’s fearless efforts to “offer songs that are touching, moving, simply beautiful and at the same time bring a new sound to the scene” has him producing a collection of songs with the power to captivate the listener. With honest lyrics, haunting melodies and heavy beats, SchulKid has the ability to inspire your body with the freedom to dance.

Never straying too far away from pop, SchulKid is “hugely inspired by classical music” and also a range of progressive EDM producers.

Despite the pending release from the artist, we are no step closer to his identity. We will have to wait patiently for more hints from his artwork: “You can choose to believe I look like any one of them, whichever portrait the music guides you to. I have no desire to be recognised at face value, I just want people to recognise my sound in the future”.

LALALAVE feat I AM HARLEQUIN
will be digitally released on 30th June.

** IF YOU WISH TO REVIEW / EMBED  / INTERVIEW PLEASE LET US KNOW PRIOR TO POSTING – rob(at)visionmusic.co.uk

The story of Eldoradio starts in a little town called Trollhattan in 2010. Without any distinct guidelines, they started playing together mostly to occupy themselves and to fill in the grey zones.
Initially "The Libertines" were common ground in terms of musical inspiration, but as the years went by the band developed their own explosive sound which has taken them around both Sweden, Norway and now the UK and beyond.

Spring / Summer 2016 sees the release for Eldoradios "21st Century Explosive Sound" album which was recorded in Svenska Grammofon Studion by György Barocsai( Bob Hund, Tyred Eyes)
And Kalle Gustavsson Jerneholm (The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, Håkan Hellström, The Hives)

The album consists of 10 tracks that will definitely kick the withering Indiepunk scene back to life again. Three singles from the album have been released, and all have been played on Swedish national radio, with two on rotation.

”Explosive, hungry, captivating and catchy. It's perfect, better than we could ever dreamed of. In all it's glory we give you "21st Century Explosive Sound". You probably won't hear a better debut album all year.” - Eldoradio

”I found strands of grey hair and gained 5kg during the recording process! ”- György Barocsai, producer.

*AMBIENT ELECTRONICA TAKEN TO LOGICAL EXTREMES*

Los Angeles resident and Holistic Science / Astronomy graduate
Ryan Field creates wonderful shoegaze electronica as Project Skyward.

Solstice Eclipse / Holographic Universe is the first taster of the Project Skyward’s 3rd album due in the later half of 2016, and Hope Recordings have decided to release it with two stunning remixes from Ulrich Schnauss and Nick Warren.

The legendary Ulrich Schnauss does his thing on 'Holographic Universe', with a pacey, infectious vocalled and ethereal wonder its genre defying, and all the better for it.

Then its straight to the dance floor with Nick Warrens rework of 'Solstice Eclipse'. Drawing on the melodics from the original, and utilising the mysterious vocal, its moody enchanting, and uplifting.

Project Skyward
is primarily the vision of singer/songwriter/programmer Ryan Field, aka ‘Skyward’. After obtaining a degree in holistic science and astronomy, Ryan sought to express ideas about the universe and their relation to human experience through music.

Project Skyward’s second album, ‘Moved by Opposing Forces’ won many supporters in the press, and ‘Shoegaze’ fraternity,  Uncut, Subba Cultcha, Ulrich Schnauss and Robin Guthrie amongst them. As with the new material the album contained enough aural alchemy to propel your eardrums heavenward; however, the emotional intensity of the music ensures each wistful, seemingly weightless track remains rooted firmly to Planet Earth. It is this combination of ethereality and earthly accessibility which gives the music such power.

Like a chance meeting in space between Flying Saucer Attack and the Cocteau Twins, Project Skyward is as catchy as it is cosmic. Modulated guitars, sublime electronics and breathy boy/girl harmonies combine to create an androgynous, boundless music which is so radical and yet so recognisable, it could only have been hatched on this planet.

ARTIST: ECHOES
TITLE: VALENTINE
RELEASE PERIOD: MARCH 2016


'A voice that makes the hairs on the back of our neck stand on end' : BBC INTRODUCING

‘Nominated for Best Female’ – UNSIGNED MUSIC AWARDS

Support Act For - ELTON JOHN / THE STREETS / SISTER SLEDGE / LEO THE LION / YASMIN HAMDEN

Radio Support - KELLY BETTS (RADIO 1) / EDWARD ADOO & GARETH LLOYD (BBC INTRODUCING) / BBC LONDON / AMAZING RADIO

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 11.48.58

ECHOES is an enchanting Londoner with an unmistakeable tone that simultaneously haunts and soothes you.

Powerfully honest lyrics sung in that deep velvet vocal over dark synths, swelling electronic beats & propelling percussion.
Whilst the closest definition would be ambient RnB, the sound sashays between soul, electronica, rnb, glitch & pop.

Her soulful voice has a reverence & class impossible to imitate, so when it rises over the spacey, beat heavy production, the songs hark back to the past whilst leading you temptingly into the future.

Her debut single 'Valentine' is a gift that keeps on giving at every twist & turn; up to a truly euphoric end chorus. Whilst forthcoming single 'Blue Deep' makes you want to close your eyes and drift away on the vessel of her voice, and this sinewy 6ft siren is a smart cookie. A self confessed bookworm, fluent in French & Spanish; her moniker 'ECHOES' is a nod to her introspective & pensive character, which bubbles through her lyricism.

Strong yet delicate, classy yet gritty, classic yet contemporary, ECHOES will have you thinking whilst singing.

Cult London Psychedelic band The Chemistry Set have quite a history. Founded by Dave Mclean and Paul Lake in 1987, the band are veterans of the alternative Manchester label “Imaginary” and cassette only label “Acid Tapes”; they helped pioneer the late 1980’s neo-psychedelic boom.

The Chemistry Set counted Factory Records boss Tony Wilson amongst their fans (they appeared on his TV show). They also received regular airplay on the legendary John Peel’s show (Peel even went so far as to sending the band a hand-written fan letter!). The Chemistry Set have been championed by mainstream media such as The Times Sunday, Record Collector, XFM, 6 Music and Classic Rock as well as underground fanzines like Bucketful of Brains and Freakbeat in the UK, The Bob in the USA, Ruta 66 in Spain and Sound Effects in Sweden).

It was in several of these fanzines that you could find Chemistry Set flexi discs, (for younger readers, these were 7” floppy plastic records that used to last for about 5 plays if you were lucky!) and for a period between 1988-1990, it seemed that every other fanzine was including a Chemistry Set flexi disc, which gave the band a healthy international fan base. In the days before the internet, the only way to find out what was going on in the independent music world was through fanzines and The Chemistry Set were featured in the UK, Spain, Italy, Holland, Greece, Germany, Sweden, Japan, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Their numerous releases (The Chemistry Set’s discography currently stands at 42 releases!) both in the UK and abroad were accompanied by extensive tours throughout the UK, Europe and the United States.. As well as reaching the indie top 20 in the UK, the band’s single “Don’t Turn Away” made the national Top 20 in Spain.

The band split in the early 90’s, took a bit of a hiatus, remaining silent… until The Chemistry Set “MACH II” remarkably reappeared in 2008! The return came about when their unreleased LP from 1989 “Sounds Like Painting” somehow was uploaded onto numerous blogs and was downloaded over 5,000 times. Since the return in 2008, the second stage of the group has seen the birth of 3 CDs: “Alchemy # 101”, “This Day Will Never Happen Again and “Chemistry is Just Numbers” plus 5 vinyl singles and 5 compilation appearances.

Their first new release “Alchemy#101” in 2009 was heralded with radio play on BBC Radio 6 and XFM plus rave reviews. The Skinny said “a near-perfect fusion of rose-tinted 60s optimism and modern recording mastery. Almost every track offers a new reason to simply enjoy being alive” and Subba-Cultcha said “the return of one of the most underrated bands of the 80’s and they’ve presented a very convincing case for their continuing relevance. Great to have them back.” Clint Boon on XFM said "The Chemistry Set are a f**kin great band"

It was a track on “Alchemy#101” that caught the interest of Cult Arranger/songwriter [and former Electric Prunes member] David Axelrod. The band made contact with his son and sent the CD to David. He loved how they added a symphonic section of his song “Sanctus” from The Electric Prunes’ masterwork “Mass in F Minor” into their reworking of Del Shannon’s “Silver Birch”. Originally found on Shannon’s “The Further Adventures of Charles Westover”, his cult 1968 LP. David said of their cover “Real Music! Finally music that makes you think and really listen to!”

The Chemistry Set have always liked giving things a “twist” , and have inserted a cover version inside a cover version on other occasions, such as their version of Pink Floyd’s “See Emily Play”. It had the “Bicycle Rider” section of The Beach Boys from the unfinished “Smile” album inserted within the song. Their cover was included in the 2013 Pink Floyd tribute box-set "The Many Faces Of Pink Floyd" and was cited as one of the best covers in the package.

The twist also extends to singing in foreign languages. In 2011 they co-wrote and sang a song La Logica Del Canvi” in Catalan with their Barcelona based producer. It was released as a b-side to a Spanish single and the record company sent the single to the Catalan Ministry of Culture and received a reply from the minister congratulating them for being the first English band to sing in Catalan. They have also worked with other singers and released Chemistry Set songs in French and Spanish.

In 2011 the band signed to French label Dead Bees records, which were the first European label to release The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Black Angels. In 2012 Dead Bees released their second album “This Day Will Never Happen Again” it received substantial critical acclaim and radio play in the USA, France, Spain and the UK. The English newspaper The Sunday Times saying "The Psychedelic scientists exquisite English Toytown Acid-Pop songs achieve rare combinations of muscle and melody”.

The Chemistry Set’s previous success in Spain proved beneficial in getting the band back on stage for the first time in 14 years. Longtime fan DJ Gato (who co-incidentally bought the “Don’t Turn Away” single when he was 14 years old) approached the band to bring a new dimension to the live show, adding even more electronics than the Mellotrons and Farfisas that the fans might have been accustomed to. Using instruments and methods old and new, acoustic, electric and electronic, together we returned to the live stage on 5 February 2010 at Razzmatazz indie club in Barcelona and have been a surprise at European festivals since, including Benicasim (FIB), Bilbao Rocks and Low Festival.

The band are huge fans of Vinyl and have formed a very special relationship with the cult-English vinyl only label Fruits de Mer records releasing 5 vinyl singles. The last single sold out within 24 hours of release.

The band were still up to their old tricks of putting a cover within a cover on the recently released Fruits de Mer records Box-Set of seven 7” vinyl singles entitled “7&7 is”. They cover “A House Is Not a Motel” & “Live And Let Live” by Love from “Forever Changes” and on “Live And Let Live” they have inserted some more Electric Prunes (this time an excerpt from “Get Me To The World On Time”) into Arthurly’s autobiographical confession.

The band released the “Elapsed Memories” EP in February 2015 to rave reviews and airplay. It included an unusual cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Love or Confusion” given a twist with 12 string acoustics, sitars, tablas and a mellotron. The New York Music Daily said of their version “The Chemistry Set re-invent Hendrix’s classic as an Indian Jam”

The band returned to the studio in the spring of 2015 to record their new album “The Endless More & More”. The album will feature 12 original songs plus a bonus 12”featuring their cover of Hendrix’s “Love or Confusion” and 2 remixes. The first remix is by Spanish indie duo Viggo, who have made a psych disco remix and the second is an incredible 22 minute remix by Swordfish from the alternative Psych-trance band “Astralasia” The 22 minute remix is reminiscent of “Set The Controls For The Heart of The Sun” era Pink Floyd meets The Orb!

Later, In spring 2016, there will also be a very special limited-edition box set that will be housed in a ‘Chemistry Set’ box, with experiments, test-tubes filled with candy and assorted paraphernalia, plus a bonus 12” featuring that cover of Hendrix’s ‘Love or Confusion’ and two new remixes, the first by Spanish indie duo Viggo, who have created a ’psych disco’ version, the second an incredible 22 minute remix by Swordfish from Astralasia.

Fruits de Mer records are an independent, vinyl-only label specializing in psychedelia, acid-folk, R&B, krautrock, spacerock and gangsta rap (ok, maybe not gangsta rap).

Our ‘Regal Crabomophone’ label was launched specifically to enable us to release singles that combine original songs with covers of classic tracks from the sixties/early seventies, in fact we launched Regal Crabomophone to enable to release a first single by The Chemistry Set in 2010, ‘cos we like them so much.

FDM’s 100 plus releases have been played out on BBC Radio 6 by Stuart Maconie, Lauren Laverne and Gideon Coe, and on BBC Radio 2 on Mark Radcliffe's Music Club.

Fruits de Mer made the front cover of Record Collector magazine in July 2015 and included a 3 page feature on them.

‘Glacial’ is a term often used to describe experimental electronic music but that would be a criminally wasteful term of expression to describe the sucking, shifting, pulsing and often gnarled soundscapes of Ipek Gorgun. At times it does indeed have an Eno and Fennesz like pinpoint crystal iciness about it with what feels like washes of cold, pure sound invading the head space, and yet at other times the growling, bubbling analogue synths of someone like Bernard Parmegiani or Aphex Twin spring to mind, or the instrumental/acoustic composition of Tristan Murail.

Ipek Gorgun is an electronic music composer and a Ph.D candidate of Sonic Arts at ITU-MIAM (Istanbul Technical University-Center for Advanced Studies in Music). After graduating from Bilkent University (B.A Political Science), she completed her Master's Degree in Philosophy at Galatasaray University with her dissertation in French, entitled “The Silence of Being-Alone and Being-Together in Heidegger’s Being and Time”.

As one of the participants of the Red Bull Music Academy 2014, she performed in Tokyo as an opening artist for Ryoji Ikeda’s “Test Pattern No: 6” and joined Otomo Yoshidide for a collective improvisation project.

As a bass player and vocalist for projects such as Bedroomdrunk (avant-garde rock) and Vector Hugo (electro-acoustic), she also performed in an opening gig for Jennifer Finch from L7 and Simon Scott from Slowdive, as well as performing live with David Brown from Brazzaville. Besides group projects, she gave solo performances at the collective electronic music events in Borusan Music Hall, Aksanat and Sureyya Opera Hall in Istanbul. Ipek Gorgun composed the soundtrack for the documentary ‘Yok Anasinin Soyadi (Mrs. His Name) directed by Hande Cayir in 2012, portraying Turkish women’s struggle to keep their original surnames after marriage. Her work entitled "The Passion for Knots (Ode to Philippe Petit") also premiered in Thessaloniki, Greece in 2014 Spring at the electroacoustic night in Mikropolis.

Besides musical efforts, Ipek Gorgun is a published poet contributing to contemporary poetry journals such as Yumusakge and Tenedos. She is a performance photographer, mainly focusing on the underground music scene in Turkey and street photography. She also won the IPA honorable mention award in 2013-14 with her work entitled "Bubblegun Daydreamer" and in 2013, she was the billboard photographer for Contemporary Istanbul.
She is currently working on her electro-acoustic solo project and researching how sonic arts can be incorporated with cognitive and emotional alteration.
