This week we´re releasing two high recommended electronic albums from the brilliant artists J. Axel from Sweden and Superluminal from Poland on the labels Plastic City and Mole Listening Pearls:
J. Axel – Like A Shadow (Plastic City)
The shadow is an unlit place or a signal generated by a light projection image of a body, caused by itself. Shades in the summer provide coolness and rest. In painting, a shadow gives visual and spatial depth or the perspective to an object, in the first place. The second album by J. Axel explores the musical shadow in Tech House. The Swedish producer places lightweight objects in a glistening Cosmos of Sound and projects its shadows over the entire range of musical moods, emotions and landscapes. The cloud’s shadows are flitting across the sea and protect against the dazzling sun. And it was exactly out there where our battered and sensitive, everyday-stressed souls were lost on a white beach at the Baltic Sea one afternoon in August. The album is a summery meditation, throwing romantic full moon shadows even deep in the night. Right here, music has a function, is tangible, and floods and warms our minds and bodies. J.Axel’s new album is a masterful play of shadows.
Superluminal – Pacifica (Mole Listening Pearls)
Superluminal are a production trio from Warsaw, Poland, formed in 2011. Superluminal performs electronic mus√ic, saturated with colour, teeming with expression, resonating with dynamics, luxuriant in depth and full of other relevant nerdy scientific verbal equations. Superluminal are Electromagnetism, strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force and gravity – these are the four main forces governing the stability of our reality. Just like the perfect balance of melody, harmony and rhythm render absolute music. Their Debut Album “Pacifica” strives to find this balance and exceed the established criteria of electronic music production with no compromises, encompassing influences from jazz, rock, soul, modernism, film, photography and graphical art. Superluminal is not afraid to play its music live – with almost infinite amount of cables connecting synthesizers, laptops, midi controllers, microphones, guitars and saxophones, in a seemingly chaotic fashion. Superluminal is – coherence, manipulation and reason.
