A&R Factory Present: Cellar Kid

Cellar Kid’s visually rich video plays with some wonderful imagery:  illusions and allusions that give the viewer a lot to think about. It blends cold and vivid futuristic surroundings with the trappings of horror films but rather than play that obvious card it seems more interested in exploring the anonymity of the modern world and promoting a freer existence away from those technical temptations and traps which we are all slave too.

There is a wonderful image as the video resolves, people race up the stairs towards the light, reminiscent of the final meeting in Close Encounters of The Third Kind the same blind faith sought for in the hazy light of the unknown. This time the unknown turns out to be the real world, their masks are shed and they emerge blinking at the natural light surrounding them.

Musically it is just as rich, sitting somewhere between a clinical, slow dance floor groove, a techno-pop adventure and musical prophecy.  It blends musical futurism with the ghosts of those post-punk krautrock pioneers who set the electronic genre going all those years ago.

Not only a great piece of music and a slick and seductive video but a very import message. It looks like having something to say is back on the menu!

A&R Factory Present: KVR

https://soundcloud.com/discowaxpromotion/kvr-feat-kaiva-never-gonna-be

KVR finally unveils his much-anticipated debut single ‘Never Gonna Be’.

‘Never Gonna Be’ is an upbeat, captivating and contemporary dance track with a killer catchy top-line. 17-year-old Dutch producer Koen Van Ravensberg has expertly blended together all the right ingredients for his amazing first solo release. A teenager who’s natural ability in production and songwriting defies his tender age.

As KVR tells us: “I’m really happy with the overall vibe of Never Gonna Be, I feel it’s got a catchy, poppy sounds to it. I had been thinking about what the song should be like for some time, struggling to find that perfect sound I was looking for, but it just wouldn’t work. Then eventually when I got it, I think I finished the basic concept in under an hour.”

KVR is no stranger to success even at the age of 17! His remix of Nathan Goshen’s ‘Thinking About It’ became a massive hit and has been certified platinum in Denmark and The Netherlands, gone gold in Sweden and Norway, reaching more than 71 million streams so far worldwide.

The Dutch producer has a bright future ahead of him with a truly global dance sound that has also now brought in his first official remix for Lady Gaga’s ‘Million Reasons’ (Feb 17th).

KVR ‘Never Gonna Be’ is out 24th February.

A&R Factory Present: Karmic

Karmic derives from the word Karma.  Everything we do or say, as human beings, has intention.  To actively be aware of yourself and how you affect others is a mindful activity.  Knowing that you have the power to be the light with how you speak is Karmic.  Pushing a friend to be his or her best is Karmic.  Living and creating with the intention of bringing people together is Karmic.  Accepting life situations as they come and having the power to be a leader through madness is Karmic.  Inspiring people to be good to each other and to work together as one is Karmic.

We are a band of musicians, artists, and life adventurers that strive to inspire people with not only our music, but our vision of the world.  We write about our lives.  We write about people we know.  We write about experiences we have had.  We hope our songs can make you laugh, cry, think, and feel.  The good and bad.

We invite everyone to experience our world, and to share positive messages in the world.  We are all in this together after all.  Let’s create art. Let’s create conversations.  Let’s paint a better picture of this world.  Let’s push to be our best.  We are Karmic, and so are you.
