XXYYXX is the name of Orlando, FL’s 17 year old producer, Marcel Everett. Marcel works out of his bedroom creating harmonious music that provokes emotion and transmits vivid images of peace and still sadness. His full-length releases are available for digital download on Relief in Abstract Records.

All Of Us, Together is the first proper full-length from Vancouver’s Teen Daze. Arriving after a prolific stretch of EPs, singles, and remixes since 2010, and recorded in the hopeful turn from spring to summer 2011, it’s something of a culmination. “I’m very proud of this as my first real LP, and the statement it makes. It fully represents where I’ve come to as an electronic artist.”

Teen Daze’s music has always suggested an auditory utopia; this album now propels those aesthetic notions forward in the timeline, resulting in a present moment awareness, rather than trademark nostalgia. “I came upon an old book at a thrift store called Utopian Visions, an encyclopaedic volume of different views on what utopia might look like, which became a huge inspiration. Especially when considering the future of our world as it actually unfolds. We’re becoming more and more self-reliant, more and more separated from our communities. I wanted to make a record that sounded more synthetic but also inviting-this is futuristic music with a heart.” 

It won’t take long to hear it as his purest form electronic work to date. Spacious opener “Treten” introduces a pulse that runs throughout Together, sometimes resting in warmth (“Hold”, “For Body and Kenzie”), other times reaching for the smoke-filled ceiling of a club (“Erbstück”, “Brooklyn Sunburn”). Perhaps these tracks feel so alive and communal because they were arrived at through performance. “I played a lot of this material on tour last year, and there’s a connection to that element, it’s all become very dear to me.” 
“Together” is the key word here. This is a record meant for interaction, be it on the dancefloor or on a drive under the night sky with friends. “There are countless reasons on why a person would create something; my reason is bring people together, to let them know that they’re not alone.”

Kid Smpl is the current alias of 22-year-old Seattle producer Joey Butler. A veteran of stage and studio, Butler has been busy developing a style of atmospheric bass music that continues to deepen with each release. His signature sound incorporates lush synths, meditative low-end, muffled vocals samples, and warm textural field recordings, punctuated by drums that straddle every end of the tempo spectrum. The sounds are spread across a canvas made wide with breathing room. Briefly put, it evokes the introspection of a far-flung space colony’s forest terrarium, late into the evening, alone or with close company. After a string of successful releases showcasing this style, Butler is gearing up for his first full-length, to be released on the newly-conceived Hush Hush music label. The album promises to provide a fully realized picture of Butler as a producer, articulating the hazy future vision he has been praised for on numerous EPs, tracks, and remixes released to date.

    Sold out at the box office or online? I think we'll just show up early since it's a club.
