SpectraSoul “How We Live” New LP

SpectraSoul’s brand new album “How We Live” is out now via their label Ish Chat Music.

One of the world’s most revered drum & bass outfits SpectraSoul return with their third studio album ‘How We Live’, self-released on their burgeoning Ish Chat Music imprint. Turning back to their roots for a more hardened, underground sound, ‘How We Live’ pushes through the full spectrum of D&B showcasing once more that trademark SpectraSoul sheen and musicality that has won them legions of fans across the globe over the past 10 years.

We saw from our first three releases on Ish Chat Music that there is still a very keen appetite for forward-thinking drum and bass music and that its home was once again showing itself to be a darkened room with a big sound system, full of people. Things have become really exciting again. The last few years of working completely independently has put us back in touch with the purity of drum & bass and the core ideals that are at the foundation of the genre – the independent, f**k you attitude that doesn’t conform to major label models, and isn’t all about profit — it’s about art, experimentation, and counter culture. We wanted to latch onto that ethos and run with it, trying to capture that vibe in an album.

We have tried to collaborate with people who also live their lives by these same ideals and who share the same values. From the musical collaborators to the visual artists we have brought in to work on the accompanying artwork, we have sourced our collaborators carefully; working with friends where possible and seeking out like minded, fresh talent where necessary.

As with every Ish Chat Music release, it’s been a really steep learning curve. But it’s this learning, the journey and the process that make the whole thing that much more enjoyable. The title of the album reflects this ethos. We have lived every part of the creative and manufacturing process, and that process, itself, is our lives. Every day we wake up to write music and to challenge ourselves in the studio. We are constantly learning and honing our craft; developing the rules and methods that determine ‘How We Live’.

Greta Cottage Woodpile [GCWP04]
Inhmost – Dragbacks on Dockweiler State Beach

Greta Cottage Woodpile bringing some ecstatic ambient works to dinner. Inhmost recalls distant memories of a sun bleached beach and former glories faded back into sand. A time of youthful hope and dreams of grandeur that have morphed over the years into reminiscent memories for two of the crew…

As if Inhmost climbed into their minds and created a dusty road trip using gear from the era – glacial reverbs and slow motion builds drip from speakers, floating audio across ears like filamentous achenes from a dandelion.

Miniscule hints of Goan beaches and horizontal D&B backrooms drift past your frame of reference, never breaking that stream of consciousness beaming out from the sun shadow of Dockweiler State Beach.

An LP for summer earbuds & early morning sunrise sessions, ambient music that is unashamedly retro, yet staring hard into the future with asynchronous joy.

If you recall The Orb & KLF Chillout reigned supreme over your post rave mornings, as you nursed a cup of tea and a roach then this Trip is for you… and if you don’t, enjoy your travels with an open mind. Bliss Out.

Great music, solid PR and an efficient digital distribution network are the key ingredients to this success story.

Prolix owns, runs and mostly releases on Trendkill Records these days and it’s a label that has threatened to make big leaps for a while now. For the 7th release ‘Transcendent EP’ Prolix enlisted the services of many producers to compile that ‘Killer EP’, involving Misanthrop, Mob Tactics, Rido, Coppa & Meth. The results are laid bare for all to hear:
