ARCHIS

in

ARCHIS is the artistic pairing of singer/songwriter Dia Frampton and Joseph Trapanese, a film composer and conductor known for his collaborations with Daft Punk on the Tron score and M83 on the score for Oblivion. Other artists have performed their albums with the backing of a symphonic orchestra, but few have written songs with the sole intent to merge the rich, textured instrumentation of horns and strings to pop vocals. The initial product of this novel concept is a self-titled EP released by Nettwerk on February 23. The six-song EP starts off with “Blood,” a declaration of intent for Frampton, who has already experienced a lifetime in the music business, but is finally feeling the personal fulfillment of doing what she wants.

Boxed In

in

Boxed In is songwriter and producer Oli Bayston. Having played in indie band Keith, written for The 2 Bears, sung for George FitzGerald and been a producer for the likes of Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs, Rosie Lowe and The Bohicas, Oli is now bringing his wide array of talents to bear on his own solo project.

As his list of credits suggests, he can draw on a wide breadth of musical knowledge. Oli grew up in Berkshire and then Essex in a musical family, the son of a piano teacher and an opera singer. He was surrounded by classical music from a young age, and while he’s now grown to love and draw inspiration from the repetition of composers like Steve Reich at first he rebelled against classical composition.

Schwarz Dont Crack

in

Schwarz Dont Crack is the brainchild of Ahmad Larnes and Sebastian Kreis, who met in Berlin following Ahmad’s move from New York City and Sebastian’s flee from South Germany, both in search of a more progressive musical landscape. Together they have found a synthesis of sound formed from the rich tapestry of American 90s R&B and the German capital’s perpetual electronic obsession. Their debut EP serves as an introduction to the Schwarz Dont Crack signature sound – rich with pop hooks and melodies that never skirt too far into the mainstream, backed with luscious beats that combine the entrancing snare of a well-produced sound palette without distracting from the thrust of club propulsion.

With that rare ability for provocative lyricism, Batson masterfully pairs his words with melodic hooks and instrumentals that unveil an authenticity and talent that are not just refreshing, but also relevant.
