Frank Ocean has Teddy Riley, Babyface and R. Kelly to thank for his taste and passion for the thumping and the melodic music he writes just as much as Teddy and crew have the Beatles to thank for the very same thing. John & Paul, heck they have Bach to thank! Alas, it would seem that all roads lead to Bach.
Teddy Riley (the producer and co-collaborator of Wreckx-n-Effect) is without doubt a musical genius and did a lot more than write great beats and sample obscure sax solos. If you know what New Jack Swing is then you need look no further. If you don’t know what it is, think of it as the glue between rap, hip-hop and pop.
And while that’s a very simplistic view of the evolution of pop, there’s no denying the paths and strings the connect all musicians of the last 200+ years and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Circle’s new cover tackles this very topic, drawing inspiration from a few sources to present a chilled and very 90′s infused hip-hop cover.
Circle have always sounded both fresh and well worn in (their obsession with analog gear may have something to do with this), and their new cover of the classic track Rump Shaker which is as much a homage to 90′s hip hop as it is to the concept of all music being connected is no exception.
We love this bio so we’re going to share it again: Atlas B Salvesen is a folk singer at heart and a philosopher of his own head. Born and raised in the Midwestern field state of Iowa, USA, there is a ghostly sense of isolation and alienation that permeates his music. He is a lyrically minded songwriter with a scattershot focus that sees him contemplate such divergent subjects as war, love, apocalypse, self-destruction and religion; sometimes in the same song. His debut EP Smoke Signals which borrows its title from the EP’s most adventurous track Smoke Signals Retire, is a melancholic journey between unrequited love and the aftermath of battles within and without. Despite the bombastic energy behind the title track, the journey this debut offers is overwhelmingly intimate and this intimacy remains present throughout the 5 songs. Atlas currently resides in Sydney, Australia where he persists. Oh and that wonderful 5 track EP is now free to stream on Soundcloud.
Worth a listen for the title alone, this new studio demo from Circle is a little glitchy, distorted, anthemic gem.
We have another under three minute studio demo from Circle this week. Its available for free download on Soundcloud.
From his debut EP Smoke Signals comes the second video from Atlas, Faith Will Leave You. Shot on the streets in East Sydney.
Tasty new clip from Circle for their track All the People.
We’re really excited about the Atlas B Salvesen debut next month. Here’s the clip for the single Fruit Juice. Mark the 21st of November in your diaries for the launch here in Sydney. More info to follow soon.
