The distinctive sound of Audio Mainline combines lush cinematic ambience, bass-driven grooves, warped guitars, and soothing female vocals. A deliciously prescribed sensory capsule, fittingly recorded in Asia’s Kingdom of Wonder.
Exclusively showcasing tracks from one of my all-time favourite record labels, Em:t Records (aka Emit records). Sadly the record label is no longer active, having released material in the 90’s before closing down, and then again in the early 00’s before meeting the same fate and shutting down again in 2006.
Every year the Netlabelism Magazine team pick their 3 favourite releases from the previous 12 months. It always covers a huge range of genres, and always a quality selection of tunes you should have in your collection.
Thanks to all the folks who rang in the New Year at 3 Mangoes, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Poolside beats, rooftop garden chill-out zone. Digital projections, and a selection of art installations by Dina Chhan.
Or the magical, lo-fi Viewmaster, Ryan Van Winkle and Dan Gorman’s tiny poetic slideshow at Summerhall that takes you to the banks of the Nile or the tulip fields of Holland – or further – in under 15 minutes. Small can be very beautiful.
