They say good things come in threes and that's certainly the case for Shapes of Rhythm: a new year, a new artist and their new release! Announcing the mysterious D. Lynnwood's Connect EP. Four tracks of dancefloor-friendly music blurring the lines between house, disco and the 80s boogie sound.
You won't know D. Lynnwood but in some ways you already do. A South London based Parisian, he's previously released music on a number of UK labels, but recently decided to start afresh with a newer musical outlet. Armed with a studio full of synths and drum machines he set out on a new course. This EP is the first fruits of this new nom de plume.
Gospel Discotheque, (which features label-mate BodyMoves) is that peak-time club hit in waiting. A series of uplifting soulful gospel vocal hooks underpin the track we defy you not to sing along to. The solid 4/4 beat and percussive workout is accompanied by a moving bassline to create one of the most feelgood dancefloor tracks of 2018, guaranteed!
Bitcoins ramps the pace a notch higher and is a straight up synth and drum machine jam. With a beat that is faithful to the best boogie tracks of the early 1980s, the track is driven on by a darting synth lead and a repeating pitched down vocal. Snare drum rushes and more layers of synth textures keep this one jacking along nicely.
D. Lynwood brings the tempo down a little for The Vault but maintains the machine-based groove. With a drum sound harking back to Prince's When Doves Cry, this is Connect's funkiest track thanks to its bass and synth line combo. The EP closes with the sci-fi inspired Space Agent. Dominated again by a synth bassline and a crunching drum machine this is a more atmospheric groove with vocal samples returning to hold down the mood.
Available on limited vinyl 12" with fully printed outer sleeve and digital.

Musicians and gaming nerds Gaijin Blues (Naphta and Playstation Yoga Music) continue to leave their controllers aside and pay respects to the greatest video games ever made...but this time they're going one step further into the adventure..with a full-length 8 track concept LP.
Inspired by Japanese Role Playing Games and a love of all things Super Nintendo and of course Japanese pop culture, Gaijin Blues brought you their debut EP in early 2019. After touring in the Far East and some serious hours playing games such as Dragon Quest V, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, VII and IX, the Shin Megami Tensei series and Phantasy Star IV, the boys concocted an EP of samples, live instrumentation and programming as a love note that you'd never find inside a game box...until now.
Gaijin Blues II takes you a step further. With this LP the guys have created their own fictional JRPG and then devised an end to end narrative with the music weaved around it all. You can buy the disk but what you don't get is a controller...you'll need to use your ears instead.
In the words of the creators themselves: "This is a sequel to a story you've never experienced. You are the protagonist who is coming back home to see his world completely changed by seemingly harmless technology. Each track is a chapter in this tale. Collect the items, gather a party and use your wit and imagination to find out the truth. Because technology usually comes at a price…"
This about as conceptual as it gets: where a brand new story matched with an audio narrative meet together in a fictional world. In terms of electronic music that doesn't happen often. Gaijin Blues II is a truly unique record whether you've ever owned a console or not.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Octo Champ releases his second EP of 2017, following up on Not Quite There Yet, which received major exposure from Thump and DJ Mag. This upfront four-track release is a selection of dance floor ready disco and house and sits boldly apart from a lot of other music within these genres. DJ support so far from Dan Shake and Titeknots amongst others. Taking inspiration from the more exotic corners of the musical spectrum the EP leads with the upbeat Make Heaven and its conga rhythms, vocal hooks and electronic patterns. CMI is slower and moves further into the groove whilst Lacuna is the EP's funkiest cut, featuring a killer bass hook, percussion, guitar chops, claps and more vocals to carry it along. Closing with a second four to the four track Diametric leads with an elastic, acoustic bassline, synth pads and you've guessed it: more vocal hooks.
