British producer Nate Connelly released his album ‘A Dream About Being Lost‘ last year on Blind Colour.
“After recently scoring the music for Juno Mak’s Number 1 Chinese Box Office Hit ‘Rigor Mortis’, ‘A Dream About Being Lost’ is a wistful, beguiling blend of the organic and the electronic by an experimental artist growing into his newly-found, songwriter’s skin.
Spanning ten tracks and featuring guest appearances from vocalist’s Ruby Pemberton and Amy Robina, ‘A Dream About Being Lost’ is a quietly self-assured record that moves between the modern electronic soul of ‘Some Faith’, ‘You Echo’, ‘Tired Waiting’ and the title track ‘A Dream About Being Lost’ to the more serenely powerful yet groove-filled ambient electronics of ‘Similar To A Simulated Simulation’, ‘Would Where I Belong’, ‘Safe From Twelve’ and ‘I Form A Club’, drawing from a rich palette of musical influences and displaying a subtle versatility as well as a refined mastery in terms of production, depth and detail. Closing tracks ‘Deadmen’ and ‘Arkham’ move along a more alternative route, bringing the album to a close.”
Another great remix, this time by Shigeto of Shoosh‘s track Always.Unfortunately Soosh Remix EP has never been released, but you can find it for free download via UpMyAlley here.

PMC127 – Finest Ego | Mother Love by IIIII (Five Eyes)
IIIII (Five Eyes) aka Eugene Chistyakov is a young talent from the Ukraine, currently living in riot shaken Kiev. This February we will be releasing his debut album ‘Mother Love’ on limited chrome cassettes and digitally. The album is dedicated to his late mother, who was a great music enthusiast and passed on her appreciation, dedication and talent to him. Soaking in his surroundings like an ethnologist, he used interaction with friends and strangers as inspiration. His music is his way to vent out and deal with negativity wherefore the titles usually give away the events that led to their creation.
Born in 1988 in the Red City, Eugene Chistyakov made his first experiences in music with his older and stronger brother, who always had control over the boombox in their shared child’s room. After a detour into dance music under the name Diablik – with support by BBC Radio 1 and various leading DJs, he found his true musical identity in the alterego IIIII (Five Eyes), which allows him to make music from his heart and mind. He also works as a sound engineer in his current home Kiev.
Mastered by Sven Friederichs. Artwork by Dimitriy Chistyakov. A&R: Malte Tarnow.

Besides some minor flaws like excess length and lack of variation “Dark Glow” by Hungarian producer Niteffect is nevertheless a powerful and satisfying conceptual release with deep and sinister tunes that deliver a spine tingling soundtrack for dark winter nights. Another quality release on the Polish Export label and the first one for 2014!
“‘Dark Glow’ comprises nearly an hour of music, divided into twenty parts, characterised by the restlessness of trip-hop and abstract hip-hop. Niteffect’s recent material shows great maturity and consistence, every track on Dark Glow compliments the next, making the album a logical and coherent whole.”
