We have two special summer releases:
1. Roux Spana “9 weeks of sun: Morning Heat” LP [UKM 025] FREE DOWNLOAD
“9 weeks of sun: Morning Heat” continues the story that began a year ago (uknowme.bandcamp.com/album/roux-spana-9-weeks-of-sun-free-download). This time, though the songs are again based on samples from the soul and boogie-funk-joints from the mid-80s, the material is suppose to reflect the vibe of returning home an early morning and the atmosphere in the city when it awakes during the summer time.
“Morning heat” is no longer a weekly compilation, it is a story, full of grooves, cut guitar riffs, jagged synths, fat basses and the hottest sun.
Previous “9 weeks of sun” was created by the memories, the second part is giving the background to create the memories.
2. and the new Twardowski’s EP “Terms of Endearment” [UKM 030]
After 9 months Twardowski returns with a sophomore EP on Uknowme Records. This time he messed with the catalog numbers a bit: the EP – titled “Terms Of Endearment” – skipped a few numbers and will be released as UKM030 to commemorate the author’s birthday.
Just like the previous installment, the new EP also covers a specific facet of life. This time it’s all about the dynamics of relationships and giving voice to the eponymous “Terms Of Endearment”.
One can expect Twardowski’s collection of synths to feature prominently all over the album, combined with some clever sampling for a rich and warm sound. The EP is comprised of seven tracks, ranging from 90 to 110bpm (no one, especially the author expected to deliver a track as fast as 110bpm…), all instrumental save for chopped up vocal samples.
Enjoy the summer!
