Incorporating ambient quirks into their sound, Mattia Cupelli creates the scene for undiscovered mystical spaces and people. His latest single ‘MONOLITH’ starts off with an ominous tone that lingers, building tension throughout the duration of listening to the track. One might think what could this all mean. There is no foretold story with this song, yet I feel like I have been overcome with emotion that can only be described as inquisitive to what this could mean for this music producer.
We hope that ‘MONOLITH’ ‘s overall arc will come to light with Cupelli’s upcoming album release titled RUINS via MC Records, in July. The producer was born in Rome, Italy which is known for its historic landmarks. Italy is less likely known for its impoverished cities and landscapes that are still in existence. Maybe he could have been inspired by these once desirable destinations and formed an electronic narrative around the feelings of being forgotten?
Whatever this young producer was inspired by it has got our attention more than we dare to have imagined. Not compromising his ideal sound to fit a specific genre tick off box, Mattia creates worlds that one cannot think of when you feel the pressure to conform.
Producer Tom Ashbrook has shared the title track for his upcoming album, ‘Sines’ via The Other Songs. The track was premiered via Clash Magazine who called it, “Atmospheric, haunting harmonies layer up to open the track, vocal loops building to meet delicate, lilting keys”. The first track of the upcoming album, ‘Toon Soon’ recently premiered on Vents Magazine.
Receiving support from Son of Marketing, Mr Foxx Frequency and Music Week will put Tom Ashbrook’s music at the ears of thousands. However, it’s some of the smaller publications who have gotten to know the producer better. “Ashbrook has a clear gift for luring out emotions and invoking feelings of all things beautiful, through his music”.
