Oliver Tank has unveiled ‘Different Speeds’, the first single from his upcoming EP, featuring Ta-Ku. Sydney-based Tank released his debut EP, Dreams back in 2011, which featured the beautiful, ‘Last Night I Heard Everything In Slow Motion’.
‘Different Speed’ is a hazy composition of clicking electro loops and rippling effect, with a James Blake nature to it. “I drift around at night in your dreams, more than just a friend to me, slow motion has me at a different speed.” Tank’s evident obsession with slow motion translates to the production as it leaves you feeling a little woozy .

Vimes have unveiled their new single, ‘Celestial’, which will be released on 30th September via Humming Records. Hailing from Cologne, the electro duo – Azhar Syed and Julian Stetter – have created a simplistic track with several controlled layers, eager enough to hold their own. As the high vocals whirl around, look out for the middle and end parts where it takes on an gurgling underwater feel. ‘Celestial’, the pair’s third single, proves their talent and builds anticipation for future material.
After the mystifying nature of debut track ‘Actors’ and the mystery surrounding the face of the act, Still Parade share ‘Health’. The new track is warm, baked in an ambience of trickling riffs and gentle thuds. With the distant, misty vocal quivering against its sensitive backbone, ‘Health’ is another charmer from Still Parade.
Both ‘Health’ and ‘Actors’ are being released as a double A-side on 9th September via Akira Records in the UK – the side project of Stevie and Bassi of Mt Wolf. It will be released globally via Serve and Volley Records and also be available on a limited run of 7″ in the UK on 7th October.

Last weekend I spent the weekend at Reading Festival with Gaymers for Contactmusic. Read my review…
“Forever is a thrilling record where the gritty music personifies Holograms’ realities and the chanting words bring an authoritative voice to the misery.”
