SEAPORA set to release her EP “Seaflow”

Electronic musician SEAPORA releases her EP “Seaflow” on 27th April via Chillage Records. Her previous single, 'Traveling' was premiered by Earmilk whilst its remix by Spoken Bird has seen support from The Untz, The Accidental Poet and QRD Music and her most recent single, “Per Angel” premiered via CLASH Mag. The album was produced by Peter Farr (Urple Eeple), Ian Anderson (Somatik) and Jeff Harris (Thattix). SEAPORA has received support from YourEDM, having reached #1 on EDM Africa chart, and she has worked alongside Jay Wiltzen & Alex Blue (BLU J), Alex Gonzalez (Spoken Bird) and Will Bauer (Elevated Mind) for previous album "Seapop." SEAPORA gained support from the likes of Magnetic Magazine, Insomniac, Amazing Radio and Keep It Underground and played at Lucidity Festival and Treefort Music Festival.

SEAPORA’s production style can be compared to Burial, as her vocals are reminiscent of Beth Gibbons (Portishead), Björk or Lamb. SEAPORA’s sound has become “synonymous with ethereal soundscapes and soulful vocal leads. Moved by the power of the auditory sense, SEAPORA uses her music to experience and capture mood, and through musical composition she connects with the world.” Citing influences as Björk, Robotaki, Tycho, Enya, Deep Forest, and Goldfrapp, she made her first piano composition at the age of 12.

Following her previous release "Seapop" the new album "Seaflow" is the second album in a trilogy, and the first single to be taken from the album, ‘Traveling’ consists of “dreamy vocals between flowing, ambient soundscapes, the track is an aural distillation of emotion, music that offers everything, but demands nothing.”

Speaking of “Seaflow,” SEAPORA says: "The lyrical content in "Seaflow" takes the listener on a journey through the self and deals with existential themes surrounding life and death. In "Seaflow" we get a glimpse of what it means to be truly alive and experience our own truth. The multifaceted nature of life inspired this album, as well as the awe-inspiring beauty of our planet."

1. Distant Vision Pt. 1

Electronic musical magician Uppermost has released 'Perservance'

Electronic musical magician Uppermost released his album ‘Perseverance’ on the 23rd of March through Uppwind Records after the highly anticipated wait by fans after receiving incredible support from accredited publications COMPLEX, PAPER Mag, Magnetic Mag, Paste Mag, FGUK, Tasty Network, Chill Masters, Wobblecraft and KCRW's Travis Holcombe and Jason Kramer. Having previously released through major labels such as Sony and Ministry Of Sound, Uppermost has released ‘Perseverance’ independently through his own label and has released singles ‘Make A 'Change’, ‘Step By Step ft. Sôra’, ‘Slide ft. Yudimah’, ‘Atoms ft. Birsen’ and ‘Perseverance ft Harry Pane’ ahead of the album. The electronic producer was also featured on the Mercedes-Benz’ Formula One commercial using his previous hit track ‘Disco Kids’ which led to him receiving immense support and attention from highly influential publications DJ MAG, Vice, YourEdm and Earmilk, as well as major Youtube channel Mr Suicide Sheep, BBC Radio 1 and Virgin Radio.

The Paris based producer cites Persian music as big influence with rich instinctive sounds which he brings together seamlessly on his new album. His previous project was a 23-track collection of french-wave touch, liquid disco grooves and elements of emotion. The collection named Origins contained production inspiration from producers Moullinex, Star Slinger and Cyril Hahn but still maintaining his unique style of fresh compositions and melodies. The producer is heavily inspired by artists Daft Punk, Burial, Apparat, Phoenix and Pogo and explores his own sound through borrowing styles and different elements that have helped him curate his tasteful sound.

The long-awaited album ‘Perseverance’ consists of 14-tracks which embody Uppermost’s musical journey and discovery into his sound. With energetic beat drops and luxe textures added to an aura of delightful melodies, the album hosts fierce production techniques. ‘Perseverance ft. Harry Pane’ the first track off the album and is the perfect opening track for such a production. The song encorporates a list of heavy basslines and beat drops that signify intense thunder-rich sounds and sets a mood and perfect entrance for tracks ‘Focus,’ ‘Make A Change’ and ‘Where Your Heart Goes ft SYML.’ 

Talking about the album Uppermost comments: “I decided to work on this album like it's my last one, putting everything I have to express in it, in the most sincere way I could. I needed to escape from my comfort zone and put myself in a place where I'd be vulnerable again.”
