JUNiPER create melancholic, sweeping, electronic-organic music. With their style mix of trip hop, pop and trap, the four musicians talk about long walks in the dark, the awareness of the transience of all things and the trust in tomorrow. Harsh drum machine sounds combine with ripping bass to form a rock solid foundation upon which synth tirades and a distinctive lead voice build their sonic castles. JUNiPER will be releasing their long-awaited debut E.P. very soon.
Swiss composer and producer PABLO NOUVELLE first gained international attention in 2012 with his self-released eponymous album, which Mixmag called 'essential', followed by the EP "You Don't Understand" on UK tastemaker label Black Butter (Sony Music). Currently, Pablo Nouvelle releases a single every five weeks from the album "Vulnerability" which will be released in autumn via Armada. A dance album full of warm organic synthesizers and striking vocal samples.
Kappa Mountain is the highest mountain on Yoshi's Island in Super Mario - inspired by the Japanese mythical creature Kappa, a frog-like demon that carries a pond on its head. And that's also the name of the new project by Audio Dope and Matthias Gusset, born from the idea of a remix during a joint jam session.
Known for slick and evocative vocals, Noah Slee was well and truly put on the map with the release of 2017 debut album “Otherland (Wondercore Island / Majestic Casual)”, for which he was awarded two prestigious Pacific Music Awards in 2018. Relishing in the potential forces of the arts, Slee is as determined as ever to create wavy ground swells with his heart opening breezy R&B dance jams.
With his flair for catchy, ear-catching melodies, Khazali has created pop that combines melancholy, euphoria and dreaminess, not unlike the instantly recognizable sound of Arlo Parks, Dua Lipa and Alfie Templeman, with an indie twist reminiscent of The xx and Metronomy.
