Noticed a seductive, beguiling fragrance in the air? That’s Weathertunes’s new album release. A “parfum” which conquers your senses, and spreads an instant well-being feeling for sure. Tempting lounge grooves, spiced with heartwarming positivity, flood the room with sunlight. The Lemongrassmusic brothers Roland and Daniel Voss wrote and performed everything on the album. No guest appearances this time, which impressively underlines the qualities of the project. Their passion for the French lifestyle and culture had a formative influence on the album’s spirit. With sweet melancholy, songs like “Dimanche Matin” or “Anis Nous Explique” tell about the irresistible scent of the Cote d`Azur. The selected technical and compositional pathway is set with class and in regard to the songs mood, turning “Parfum” into a lovely companion along life’s way. A feel-good album in its best sense. While listening, even the sun seems to shine a little brighter.

„Thoughtful Machines“ is the third album by South Africa based music producer Placid Larry alias Daniel Ray van Zyl. Daniel has always been fascinated with electronic music and the powerful effect it has on contemporary society. This new album encompasses the gratitude that he has for being able to express himself so vividly digitally. Mindful of the fact that understanding and embracing different cultures is paramount in human evolution, the 12 tracks on „Thoughtful Machines“ are a liberation of these ideals which take the listener on an adventure across the world – from the calming influences of the East to the formulaic repetitions of the West resting on the African soul from which this music stems. Placid Larry indulges us in a contemporary, worldly and optimistic easy listening collection of musical stories – full of thoughts, ideas and creativity…

Lemongrass – Sirius (Lemongrassmusic | Germany)
Sirius is the most luminescent star in the night sky. A light years away double-galaxy, considered as a mystical symbol by many ancient cultures. This is the chosen destination of Lemongrass’s new album. As usual Lemongrass’s range of drums and percussion is sticking out. Well for those who don’t know, Roland Voss is an educated drummer. Either as a cool down-tempo groove (Deep Blue), as a playful broken beat Jazz rhythm (Jazz Bandits) or just with a discrete Snare, the choice is always brought to the point. Hopefully Mr. Spock puts his intergalactic radio on once in awhile. It would be a pity if his Half-Vulcan ears would miss this “Sirius” expedition. Listen: Lemongrass – Sirius
Ohm-G – Hulectric Soul (Eivissabeat | Spain)
Olaf Gutbrod, aka Ohm-G, was fascinated the music for as long as he can remember. Music was and is magic for him. Olaf got his first guitar when he was 9 years old. From this moment on he knew that music was his life. Since 2004 Ohm-G is the resident DJ at Atzaró, one of the best locations for exquisite music and visuals in Ibiza, where he initiated also the Atzaró Lounge. The last 6 years Ohm-G focused on refining his sound, his production and his DJing. Before the new album “Hulectric Soul” he released five albums already as well as contribute tracks on well known Compilations like Cafe del Mar, Hotel Costes, Buddha Bar and other well known compilations.

Yonderboi – Passive Control (Mole Listening Pearls | Hungary)
After long years of work the author of unique and successful albums “Shallow and Profound” (2000) and “Splendid Isolation” (2005) is back with his new long-player, “Passive Control”, which is considered to be the third, closing part of the trilogy. The whole album has an elusive feel of utopia, which can be explained easily by Yonder’s love for science fiction ever since he was a kid. Jean Gireaud Moebius the legendary French comics artist, Russian sci-fi movie “Kin-Dza-Dza”, or Hungarian cult-film “Meteo” are just a few examples that inspired him during the making of “Passive Control”.

Praful – Pyramid In Your Backyard (Therapy Recordings | The Netherlands)
To some electronica enthusiasts, it might seem like a contraction to describe Praful as a saxophonist who has some relevance to electronica. If electronica is all about synthesizers, drum machines, sequencers, samplers, and the like, how can a saxman possibly have any relevance to electronica? So this is why it´s difficult to say exactly how “Pyramid in Your Backyard” should be categorized. It’s probably best to describe the release as a hybrid mixture of electronic club/dance grooves (including trip-hop, chillout, and ambient), pop-jazz, and world music.
