Mahdyar - Seized
Mahdyar
Seized
2LP | 2018 | US | Original (Kowloon)
24,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
A vital figure in Iran's underground music scene, Mahdyar's dauntless electronic architecture fuses restless fractal beat structures with warped Persian motifs and instrumentation. The Tehran-born producer's long-anticipated debut 'Seized' comes more than a decade since Mahdyar made his initial mark as a teenager producing the majority of the newly emerged Persian Hip Hop movement at the age of 16. Retaining the grit and urgency of his hip-hop roots, Mahdyar sonically aims further off-the grid building crushing, feral soundscapes in constant flux. Dark and provocative, 'Seized's frenetic energy reveals itself slowly and purposefully. Mahdyar's ambitious first full-length offering 'Seized' rhythmically structures itself along the contours of middle eastern traditional music and hip-hop, weaving mournful complex sound collages that blur the line between its acoustic and digital sources. Frenetic compositions continually build, reshuffle, and take a new divergent path with each reset.
Ian Chang - Spiritual Leader EP
Ian Chang
Spiritual Leader EP
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Kowloon)
15,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Bringing electronic music to the physical realm, genre-bending drummer Ian Chang is set to release his debut EP 'Spiritual Leader' this September. An acclaimed drumming virtuoso known for his work in Son Lux and Landlady, Chang uses his kit to control and manipulate samples resulting in a seamless synthesis of raw performative intensity and sophisticated sound design. The process began in 2015 when Chang was beta-testing Sunhouses Sensory Percussion, culminating in a psychedelic light show of a video and track entitled Spiritual Leader. Since then, Chang has honed his creative voice in gearing up to release his debut with Kowloon Records. The EP explores the relationship between human and machine, exuding an intuitive physicality meshing off-kilter rhythmic ideas with hypnotic textures and exploring the edges of IDM, ambient, free jazz, and much more with futuristic creative abandon. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Chang was shaped by the citys diversity and vibrancy. He moved to New York in 2007 to pursue music and quickly gained a reputation as a gigantically talented drummer (NPR). To date, Chang has recorded and/or performed with such varied artists as Son Lux, Landlady, Joan As Policewoman, Body Language, Matthew Dear, Dave Douglas, Rafiq Bhatia, Rubblebucket and Moses Sumney.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Although Tom Adams grew up in the flattest part of the UK, his heart found a home in the wild and mountainous places of this earth. Recorded entirely live and set to a wonderfully cinematic yet minimalist backdrop, his achingly beautiful and cerebral debut full-length 'Silence' is due for release on 5th May via Kowloon. The Cambridge born songwriter/composer effortlessly nestles expansive melodies alongside spellbinding falsetto, his neo-classical approach conveying intense emotion throughout eight intimate offerings.Adams started playing piano as a child but things didn't fall into place until he bought his first electric guitar as a teenager. He quickly became obsessed with songwriting, finding inspiration in his surroundings, "Living in the countryside is lovely for writing as you can leave so much space in your music - the perfect situation for delicate sounds." A big turning point for him came during his first visit to Berlin in the summer of 2014 however, "The night I arrived I went to a Nils Frahm show. After his set he invited a member of the audience to come onstage and play. I got up and the response was amazing." Frahm's manager subsequently took him under his wing and went on to introduce him to Kowloon Records. Since relocating to Berlin, he has found himself embracing the idea of noise for the first time, "I have in the past been extremely focused on making things perfect in my music, but now I've learnt to accept the noise and embrace imperfection."'Silence' follows Adams' 2016 debut EP 'Voyages by Starlight.' Recorded as live takes in a single afternoon, the tactile electro-acoustic arrangements received accolades for their shimmering simplicity and the wide-ranging output of synth-guided exploits, chamber pop and melancholic piano-ambient works. Using the studio as an instrument, Adams' exploratory production techniques left his signature mark on a collection of tracks that echo the ghost of Jeff Buckley circling the musical orbits of modern innovators like Jon Hopkins, Anohni and Jónsi of Sigur Ros.Having opened for the likes of A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Perfume Genius and Moonface, Adams' striking live show features solo piano, vocals and layers of effects, with an emphasis on fluidity. "If I'm really enjoying playing a particular song, then I'll improvise a longer arrangement of it in the moment. It keeps me on my toes and also means that every show is a bit different and unique."With the impending release of 'Silence' and an exciting collection of live dates on the horizon, Tom Adams looks ready to pick up the neo-classical mantle and make 2017 his own.
