For their latest track, “Lampedusa” Experimental Electro artist Equalisation teamed up with Sean Taylor to create potentially one of the most sobering tracks we’ve heard this year. While there have been a fair few protest songs released on the varying disparities which are crippling the globe, there haven’t been which were quite as ominously captivating as Lampedusa.
Echoes of existential foreboding sit atop of the oceanic Electronica soundscape while the lyrics allow your imagination to stretch and put your reality into perspective. Even though ambience and light textures present in the mix, deep and reverberant doom can also be found within the complex layers of Lampedusa.

MXK’s debut single Air featuring Olivia Meade is a hallowing mix of synth pop which captures the contempt of every women ever scorned as the narrative lyrics unravel, gripping you as they lead you through the track demanding that you share in her melancholy.
Along with acts such as Angel Olsen, London Grammar, Big Thief & Heavy Heart, this artist has got some stiff competition but with their first ever single, MXK and Olivia have blown it out of the park by creating this delectably dark ensemble that you can listen to time and time again.
To say that Air is an empowering track is possibly the biggest understatement I could make. The beautifully stunning singer song writer Olivia has been around on the underground with her guitar since 2009, it’s a tragic sign of the times that this track isn’t being blasted by every mainstream radio station.
Along with her staggering vocal ability, Olivia Meade is also a multi-instrumentalist, but her true talent lies in the passion she packs into her sound to create a powerfully transgressive mix with MXK.
Harvey Lemmings is an artist who managed to perfect his unique take on genres such as electronic music, experimental, ambient or neo-soul.
His sound is striking because it can appear extremely sophisticated, yet pleasantly simple, appealing to a wide variety of crowds and listeners. With his brand new release, Lately, Harvey managed to progress yet another step forward in his songwriting and production aesthetics. This song is a perfect example of what happens when balance is taken into account. This artist managed to craft the music with a particular attention to details, making for a very special combination of edgy energy and personable intimacy.
“Lately” will take listeners through an exciting musical journey, where rhythm dances along with melody, creating something really special. When listening to this music, Harvey reminds me of artists such as Tame Impala or Flying Lotus, just to mention a few. The sound is roomy and expansive, yet humble and down to earth, making for an absolutely special compromise between ambiance and intimacy.
