Throwing Shade is a London producer and NTS Radio presenter. Following on from her ‘Mystic Places’ 12” (released on Kassem Mosse’s Omnira imprint in October ’13), this new EP, entitled ’19 Jewels’ offers a further, intoxicating glimpse at her unique “cosmic R&B” and “digital soul”. Drawing in iridescent strains of popular music – from African and Asian modes to the grimey axis of London’s contemporary sound narrative – Throwing Shade creates a diverse and abstract sound patchwork on ’19 Jewels’, intangibly borne in the here-and-now.


Ukkonen – Aika EP (Stream/video)

Following last November’s ‘The Ancient Tonalities of..’ debut for NPIP, we’re proud to share ‘Aika’, the latest Ukkonen EP.

Interpreting the original ‘Luomus’ piece as a soundtrack to a multifaceted narrative, filmmaker Sim Hutchins contemplates tragedy, bigamy, jealousy, perdition, salvation, rebirth and retribution through processed VHS visuals and digital manipulation.

Stream the full 28 min long EP below, and buy the limited handstamped 12″ vinyl or DL now direct from NPIP.


Karen Gwyer – Missisissipippi (video)

Dazed feature the new Karen Gwyer video, for the New Roof EP‘s ‘Missisissipippi’ track. Directed by Ross Blake, it’s “an epic take on the music video by one of London’s underground radicals”.


Doomsquad – Kalaboogie (out now/stream)

Doomsquad’s debut LP ‘Kalaboogie’ is out now, and is available to stream over at Dazed Digital, or buy via No Pain In Pop and iTunes.

“The Montreal/Toronto trio take care to temper surrealism with folky, multicultural undercurrents, weaving the aboriginal music of their North Canadian upbringing into the visionary sounds of Gang Gang Dance, Fever Ray and Gazelle Twin. Subtly entrancing and sulphurous, ‘Kalaboogie’ stretches out like a volcanic winter, soaring over Doomsquad’s native Canadian wilds and effortlessly outpacing the long shadow of Neil Young and Joni Mitchell.”


Halls – iD Slumber Session (Mix)

Following his ‘Love To Give‘ LP release, Samuel Howard curates a nocturnal mixtape for iD Magazine.

“Sleep isn’t always soothing – it can be tainted, restless, haunting. Phase one is drifting – phase two is hallucinating – phase three is descent – stage four is resolution. Sounds clash and are discordant, fragments drift closer and slip away from the foreground. These songs are a mix of sounds I associate with sleep.”
