aahh Radio Episode 12 Hermitude

The HyperParadise LP is Hermitude hitting the bullseye of their artistic vision, a beautifully inventive record of future beats and electronica. It’s not just their meticulousness in production and musicianship, it’s the passion and love they have for instrumental music that makes them so special.  The songs are bubbling with personality: choruses leap out of songs demanding an emotional response, differing for each listener. It wouldn’t be hard to imagine the more notably adventurous R&B/soul vocalists wishing they could get their hands on the likes of All of You and HyperParadise. Fresh from their overseas success Hermitude undertook some high-profile … Continue reading aahh Radio Episode 12 Hermitude

Elefant Traks Welcome New Signing: Joelistics

Elefant Traks welcome new signing: Joelistics!! His debut solo album is called Voyager and it drops May 6. From his time with TZU, Joelistics is regarded as one of the most charismatic frontmen in hip hop, one of the best freestylers to have never battled; a true storyteller influenced by shoegazer electronica and folk as much as classic boom bap hip hop.

The first single airs late March.  Elefant Traks believe he’s got an absolutely cracking record on his hands and we tend … Continue reading Elefant Traks Welcome New Signing: Joelistics
