From Nora Ritchie:

Video: Sonnymoon - "Wild Rumpus"

Pitchfork: "Sonnymoon, a duo from Boston, have an intuitive knack for merging a strong melody with loose grooves and sleek textures."

Los Angeles Times: "a swath of shimmering synth-laden brush strokes and sporadic low-end punches -- a gentle sound with a dash of psychedelic sultriness.

Today, electronic soul duo Sonnymoon release their video for "Wild Rumpus" from their forthcoming self-titled debut album. The video, a multi-layered suite of sounds and juxtaposed images, plants itself in the depths of a musical rainforest. Sonnymoon will be out on May 22nd via Plug Research.

Drastic Synth 'Deeper Than Rap' (Instrumental Mixtape)

From Park Street PR:

Drastic Synth 'Deeper Than Rap' (Instrumental Mixtape)

Drastic Synth is a music producer from Birmingham who started to appreciate all things musical from a very early age. In1999 Drastic Synth heard the track 'Freestyler' by Bomfunk MC's; this is a time he credits as a turning point in his musical journey. From this moment on, he started to become very interested in the world of audio music production. From going to various clubs and raves around the country he became associated with local emcees and DJ's, which increased his interest. While most of his friends where rapping and writing lyrics, Drastic Synth wanted to take the journey of a producer and a beat-maker rather then the path of a vocalist or performer. 

Drastic Synth admires the work of a wide range of musical genres and always claims to remain open-minded where music is involved. He credits the energy of rock music, the motivational power of gospel and the whole vibe of urban music as some of his influences. In 2005 Drastic Synth decided to step forward and began to invest money into his own studio. Starting off with a PC with basic software he began to start learning about how beats where created and indeed started sketching down rough ideas. Trying out various pieces of hardware such as the Akai MPC 1000, Roland SH201 synthesiser and a Juno keyboard he began to understand the principles of how a studio works and soon realised that what he was trying to achieve could be done by using various software.

After five years of working hard to create and develop a sound that was unique as well as relevant, Drastic Synth decided that it was time to start to focus on getting his music to a professional standard. He researched deeply into sound design, mastering, music theory and the language of music spending every spare minute in the studio trying to apply his increased knowledge into his already recognisable unique sound. For the next year he experimented with new ideas and different formulas always trying to creatively push musical boundaries drawn from his original inspirations.

Now in 2012 Drastic Synth is ready to unleash a barrage of brand new unheard material. First up is his debut release 'Deeper Than Rap', a twelve track free download release of instrumentals that showcase his diverse range of musical influences. Drastic Synth's production has already had the thumbs up from those few lucky enough to have heard it and already is making noise on the internet with a string of positive and complimentary reviews. With more of his own releases planned for the near future, as well as being commissioned to create beats for various other artists and labels the future looks bright for Drastic Synth. Drastic Synth has arrived, this is much deeper than rap...
