+++ ATMA is Jane Arnison aka Jon Dark, member of the Berlin based band Kool Thing. The band is currently working on new songs for the follow-up to their wonderful self-titled debut, and all members will be releasing new material from their side-projects in the next few months. Jane does the start with a beautiful self-recorded and produced 5-track-EP “Remedy in Motion” entitled out Jan 28th via Mad Dog & Love. The lead single “Roses” is as athmosperic and longing as the whole record and can already be streamed and downloaded. If you like the vibe as much as I do you can already pre-order the whole thing it via Bandcamp.
+++ I discovered hip hop artist Jay Boogie through the latest issue of BDGRMMR magazine, which we posted about last Wednesday (click here or see below). I highly recommend his 7-track album/EP “Pretty Spitta”, which was released late December on Jay’s Bandcamp page is described as “The sound of struggle, beauty, pain. Sex, spiritualism, opulence and self-awareness.” I have nothing to add here, except for that you can stream the whole thing here, to buy it click on “download”:
+++ sean360x is based in Paris and does very jazzy, intimate soul music with a wonderfully releaxed, funky vibe and a the right amount of creative chaos. His song “je ne sais quoi (know not)” was released in November last year as part of on the EP “one” and now comes with a nice split-screen-heavy video, which according to the YouTube info text shows the artist “embracing the uncertainties of life for 3 years through ritual and symbolism in the jenga of Paris, Haiti, New Orleans, & Alphabet City”.
