Its Never Too Late: London electronica artist James Greenfield finds the clues to redemption on ‘Returning’

Mastered skillfully at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London, James Greenfield brings us a fantastic new single with a true-life feel that has such a personal soul-recovering touch to it with ‘Returning‘.

James Greenfield is a well-established London, England-based-based indie electronica artist, cat lover, neo-classical and mightily skilled multi-instrumentalist, who is making his singing debut on this fine new single.

After starting his music journey over twenty years ago whilst making tunes for computer games, this is an ever-evolving artist who is always looking to improve and be as genuine as possible.

This is the true story about finding your authentic self again after losing it in the haze of this weird world that we live in, with all the traps that can easily catch you up like mice on cheese, and keep you locked away in places you actually don’t belong.

Returning” is about how every single person on this planet has something unique and beautiful to them that underpins their true calling. We might not be conscious of it because our authentic selves get trampled by education systems that want to pigeonhole us, by people who tell us we’re not good enough, and by our own false narratives born from living in lack.” ~ James Greenfield

Sung with such class and knowing insight of a man who was once lost in the matrix, you feel calm and invigorated by his vocal delivery, which is such an ear-warming experience. With a relaxing energy which is made with scrumptious conviction – you sense that he is on an enlightening mission – to open the suffocating gates around the road to where he knows his consciousness should be.

Returning‘ from the experienced London, England-based electronic artist James Greenfield, is that follow-your-inner-intuition type of track that certainly has thinking about your own journey. This is a terrific effort and one that shows you into his new path as a vocalist, challenging himself like an Olympic athlete to break down barriers, as he helps us open our eyes to where we need to be.

You can find your destiny, if you want it enough. Being real is the only way to live and heal after all.

Disorder – At the Door: Grunge has Never Hit Harder.

Stop wearing out your Deftones and Smashing Pumpkins records and hit play on the frenetically dark alt-rock hit, At the Door, London’s luminary outfit Disorder.

With mastering work by Alex Wharton (Pixies, The Beatles, My Bloody Valentine, Mogwai) at Abbey Road Studios and the mixing and co-production talent of Billy Bush (Garbage, Muse, Foster the People), you don’t need us to reassure you of the production quality.

But plenty of the ingenuity in At the Door comes via Disorder’s energetically confrontational presence in the alt-rock scene.

They offer the chaos of punk in a tumultuous soundscape blazoned with serious rock n roll stripes. The combination of heavy down-tuned guitars, synths and drum machines have redefined what rock and roll means in 2021. At the Door isn’t a revival but a reformation.

At the Door officially released on July 2nd; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.

A&R Factory Present: Lycio

Out of Birmingham, Lycio are a contemporary 3-piece bringing a uniquely authentic take on electronic/hybrid music – combining distinctive vocals, real & electronic drums, alongside pad/synth textures. Despite their interest in sound design, Lycio ultimately prioritise the song – great songwriting, vocals & melody.

Following the highly positive reception to ‘Air Part 1’, lycio’s second offering ‘Saharan King’ sees a more reflective side to the band. ‘Saharan King’ was mixed by Craig Davis and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Alex Wharton (mastering artists such as The Beatles, The Chemical Brothers, Mogwai, The Pixies and cutting albums to 12″ by Radiohead, Coldplay, Massive Attack, to name a few).

Emotive lyrics, evolving synths and pulsating sub bass see ‘Saharan King’ crescendo throughout. Lyrically pained verses build in tension, eventually opening out into its final yearning chorus.

Everything is played 100% live; no backing tracks, no playback. Hybrid music with that essential human feel.
