Ivan Pavlov’s newest release as CoH doesn’t seem to be minimal enough to inspire technological paranoia, but judging from the almost suspenseful sample track below, it’s clear that we at least have an album of introspection on our hands. MUSIC VOL. comes out April 1 on Editions Mego, and according to the label description, it would be missing the point to play each track on the road with the windows open. Instead, “it is these gentle, silent tones that force us to pay attention to the inner qualities of each sound, it’s colour and vibration, while simultaneously revealing its tactile and corporeal qualities.”

The band are two people: Merinde Verbeek (vocals) and Ajay Saggar (instruments). Having emerged from their isolation in the studio for several months with a new album brewing for the autumn of 2016, the duo have ventured out and started playing several live shows in Europe recently. The reaction to the live shows has been tremendous, with new fans such as J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) and Warren Ellis (Dirty 3 / Grinderman / Nick Cave + The Bad Seeds) singing their praises.
Their otherworldly sound created by the band couples Ajay’s shimmery, shivery guitar strum with Merinde’s beautiful elastic voice
And pop rarely sounds as transformative and as transfixing as this.

Late Night Endless is the first album by Sherwood & Pinch and the culmination of two years in the studio developing, re-dubbing and deconstructing tracks. It finds the highest common factor between the two’s techniques, making it impossible to see where one musical personality ends and the other starts. It touches on the urban swing of UK garage on ‘Music Killer (Dub)’ and ‘Gimme Some More (Tight Like That)’, on interstellar nineties ambient dub on ‘Wild Birds Sing’, on the mystical minimalism of Pinch’s first releases on ‘Africa 138’ – but none of these stylistic diversions are out of place; they all seem completely of a piece with the heavyweight, ancient-futurist dub pulse that runs under everything.

These last 25 years have seen Mara Aranda perform in venues spanning half a world. To mark this important milestone in her career, 2015 saw the release of Mare Vostrum, an album where inspiration, ethnic influence and emotion come together, just likethe waters that flow from the rivers into our shared Mediterranean Sea.
Mare Vostrum sees Mara’s regular group of musicians coming together: J Martinez on the citar, hurdy-gurdy and bouzuki, Abel Garcia on the lute, and hurdy-gurdy and Sacha Gotowstchikow on percussion.
They are artists who share common memories, stories and feelings. Their long journey together make this Mara’s most personalised album, and not just another mass-produced consumer product. Even so, this important marker will be another step along the way, as Mara continues to grow in quality and popularity, becoming ever more the personification of the depth of Tradition across this richest of seas, encompassing nations and kingdoms, fortunes and vanities.

Kevin Martin is a Berlin-based English musician, record producer and journalist, often known under his recording alias The Bug. He moved to London around 1990,[1] and he has been active for over two decades, in the genres of dub, jazzcore, industrial hip hop, dancehall, and dubstep.
His projects include GOD, Techno Animal, Ice, Curse of the Golden Vampire, Pressure, and most recently, King Midas Sound.[2] He has collaborated with such figures as Daddy Freddy, John Zorn,[3] Justin Broadrick, Experimental Audio Research,[4] El-P, Blixa Bargeld, Alec Empire, Dälek, Vast Aire, Warrior Queen, Anti-Pop Consortium, DJ Vadim, Cutty Ranks, Flow Dan, Mark Stewart and Keith Levene.

Tiziana Bertoncini and Thomas Lehn have been collaborating since 2002.
The special feature of the duo is the alchemy created by the meeting of the classical and the electronic instrument. The different nature of sound, the characteristics and histories of violin and analogue synthesizer could recall a friction. Actually, what happens is a sort of mirror game, in which the roles of the instruments are continuously exchanged. Bertoncini and Lehn move in an abstract territory, their approach to sound is contemporary. Nevertheless their consideration to music is quite classical insofar as based principally on tension/release, rupture, intensity and expressivity in all its facets.

I hope to hear from you as soon as possible.
