    Order Vinyl 12'' & Digital : bit.ly/2yMcNMC Greece's Melting Records close out 2017 with welcome return of the Tales of Another Direction compilation, now in its second volume. Tales of Another Direction Vol. 2 brings back some exciting Melting Records mainstays and introduces promising new talent, confirming the label's ear-to-the-ground taste-making prowess. The ten track collection – not including the 'bonus track' – is an aural journey in the best sense of the term, leading the listener down a jazzy pathway paved with trip hop, downtempo, and chilled electronic delights. Tales of Another Direction Vol. 2 opens with the seductive "Flyentists" by French producer Screenatorium, featuring beautiful, smokey vocals and hazy, lazy rhythms. "Deep Water" – by Renegades of Jazz side-project Keno – continues this intoxicating vibe with its beachside sounds, organ and loungey horn loops, and beckoning female vocal snippets. Other strong highlights include the classic trip hop sound of Kognitif's "Flamant Rose", Skinshape and Jon Moody's '70s noir throwback "Oboe Diddly", the tough, choppy beats and trippy sitar of "Growth Strategies" by Niles Philips (Timewarp, Inc), and the hypnotic "Primeira Sessão" by MPC bandits Billa Qause and Mononome. There's so much more to enjoy on Tales of Another Direction Vol. 2.

    The Album's Concept: Everyone has a story, One story; The Monomyth. You are the main character. To understand the nature of story and what it means to us is to understand your own life path. Monomyth Separation is Part One of the Hero’s Journey. Will you accept the call to adventure? This album was born during my first big tour of Greece. I played 10 cities and travelled around the whole country playing my music. I received such great energy and feedback from fans that I decided I must make a project inspired by the trip, so I started digging! I collected records from around Greece; some traditional greek music plus other nice bits that I found. Whilst I was traveling, I was trying to come up with a concept that would tell the tale of a great journey. And of course, as I was in Greece ideas of myth and legend came to mind. So, when I returned home I researched a few things and stumbled across a theory by a philosopher and writer called Joseph Campbell. Basically, he wrote a book called “The hero with a thousand faces” in which he describes a theory that all great stories share; common elements - that they are all one story, a Monomyth. Is there a deeper meaning to why we tell stories? Are they a road map for our very existence, and a way to describe the cycle of life, death and rebirth? Due to this the album is very cinematic. I try to tell a story, but I want the listener to decide what that story is. The album will be best enjoyed as a whole so please find a quiet time to settle in and enjoy the ride. credits

    I proudly present my first release on BMSS Records, Monkey Tales. A collection of stories told from a timeless space, where magic meets curiosity to create an emotional pilgrimage. One that starts, like many other good tales, with Once Upon A Time… Moving through playful spaces and the night of the jungle you reach a sunrise, signalling your journeys end and an opportunity to reflect on your experience and it's personal meaning. In truth, you are the story teller, you always have been.

    Second Track "Psychotherapy EP" is an instrumental Album accompanied by the lectures of Alan Watts(1915-1973). The segments used in the EP stick to dominantly Zen Buddhist ideologies and in the manner in which Mr Watts presented them. The Instrumentals Sample a variety of genres incorporating Hip-Hop break beats and Electronic influences. The Project itself Is in essence a years work of music and a timeless reminder of a state-of-mind/mood/musical-funk that was compressed into in 8 songs. Album can be downloaded in its entirety here: Download Full EP in Mp3 Due to the heavy sampling nature of the EP it is not commercial. Therefore NONE of the tracks may be used to make a profit. It's better that way. Credit Where credit is due: Thank You all so much, your music has moved me so deeply that it inspired what you see today. Alive or dead I hope somehow or someway my gratefulness reaches you. Your songs unlock a new world of music appreciation, a perfect unison of composition and emotion. Without you all I wouldn't continue to do what I do today. Again, thank you. - Jerome Kern - Astrud Gilberto - Vera Lynn - Nina Simone - Cheb Khaled - Quarteto Em Cy - Tamba Trio

    POETREE MUSIC SOUNDS LIKE: Jazz-hiphop-soul-cinematic-treats-and-audio-treats 5 stars ***** REVIEW: Poetree promises just what he delivers on his Inner Orchestra lp. A superb, sprawling voyage through hip-hop’s uncharted waters, mixing the traditional with the offbeat and taking cues from a variety of influences. Am I surprised? Absolutely. Am I captivated? Even more so. I’m firmly rooted in the old school hip hop or at least, old school mainstream hip hop. I’m not old enough to remember the days when NAS and A Tribe Called Quest had chart-topping albums, but those must have been some days, right? Nowadays there’s little in the way of mainstream hip hop that appeals to me, and “underground” artists like Immortal Technique, People Under The Stairs etc remain underground. I’m pondering on that word there, underground. Underground. As if hip hop was dead, six feet under, right? And in ways it is. But if it wasn’t for the underground, independent acts like Poetree here it could be worse still. It’s being kept alive by those who haven’t given way to commercial expectations, selling out, doing ads etc, by those who tirelessly work honing their beats and crafting their rhymes in the spirit of true hip hop. To quote the liner notes of People Under The Stairs’ dope album O.S.T, “As major artists traded in their DJ’s and turntables for backing bands and backup singers, underground hip hop became a symbol of suburban rebellion … It seems that in the infinite pursuit of progression, some have forgotten to acknowledge the past.” With two feet firmly forward, Poetree nevertheless hasn’t forgotten about the importance of the past. One of the great things about DJ’ing and sampling is the almost endless ability to create sentences and hooks by sampling bits of existing lyrics alone. If a DJ don’t rap, how will we get to know his personality, his style? Why, sampling of course. Inner Orchestra’s opening track is a superbly virtuosic and confident introduction to the music and the artist, with a foundation of drums and soulful strings underlying samples from some of the genre’s most legendary MC’s. As much as it’s for show, it’s a fitting insight to Poetree’s character: self-assured and very funky. “Who’s the one you call” “Poetree” “Coming into your mind!” Grandiose enough for you? Try the next track Muzik Power, whose opening string salvo puts you in mind of a royal procession. Well, this is hip hop royalty we’re talking about here, so I guess it’s fitting. Guest MC Headkrack rips this track up over Poetree’s immensely funky beat, flavoured with brilliant scratches, THOSE STRINGS and some guitar that clearly went out and devoured a massive bowl of soul food for dinner. Just great stuff, and it only gets better… Chronicle Dynamite ups the pace again with a wonderful DJ Premier-esque string loop before Late Night Blues transports us to a classy nightclub, sits us on a mahogany barstool and hands us a drink of the finest bourbon. I feel like I should be dressed in a dinner jacket… I’m half expecting Miles Davis to walk up to me and offer me another drink. You see we’re only a few tracks in and the lines have already been blurred between hip hop, jazz and soul in so subtle a way it took me a while to work out it was happening. Styles are blended and coalesce in a flash of genius, staying true to the game and delivering some surprising and captivating music along the way; music that soothes, excites and amazes. Poetree’s music stands up on its own, is the perfect compliment to a number of guest rappers and illuminates the dark cavern of modern day hip hop, pushing boundaries yet firmly indebted to the old school.

Doesn't matter I'll just have some bacon and eggs. *Repeat* I don't know about you, but I'm getting worn out. There' nothing left here to do. I could just end out the blue, what's it all about. Just pretend that you're new. People talk about a state of mind that makes them tense. Digging deep enough I'm sure you'll find suspense. Open windows just to jump right through and break your legs.

    The Story: This album has changed my life. I wrote these songs over the last several years and really lost myself in its creation. I went to all extents to create something that sounded perfect. Something that would allow me to die in peace upon its creation. In certain cicumstances, I felt as though a force were writing the songs through me or that the songs were already written and I was merely a conduit. I feel as though these tracks are more like the story of my souls journey through the cosmos than an expression of my life. The Sound: I've been playing dancefloors for years. I decided to make an album, though, which combined what I learned from bootyshakin beats with the understanding that the CD would also be played in cars, bedrooms, dorms, walkmans, and wherever destiny lead it. It's really a concept album that bridges electronic genres such as Trip-Hop, Breaks, and Drum and Bass with more song/lyric-based elements and ethnic mobility. My friend, Rigzin, joined me on track 9, HymnalAYA, and sang some of the most beautiful Tibetan chant I've ever heard. This song still has the power to bring tears to my eyes if I'm not careful. Other than that, all of the vocals are mine. The Artwork: The artist Darrah Danielle has been my creatrix for two albums now and this is one of her finest works. I often tell people that one of the most important reasons to buy the album is to own the exquisite original collage work. We worked together intimately on this project and a simultaneous vision emerged. I cannot express the gratitude I have for Darrah's creation and its inspiration for the music born of its divine incarnation.

    Out Now On Cold Busted ------------------ 1. When I See Your Smile 2. The Happening 3. Can't Find It 4. Such A Long Time 5. Out Of Town 6. A Taste Of Honey + six more tracks on the full album Kill Emil is a DJ and producer based in Athens, Greece – by way of Brazil – who, since 2009, has created a healthy discography of potent beats and sublime atmospheres. With an early inspiration in hip hop and, importantly, Gangstarr’s Daily Operation, Kill Emil has been prolifically chopping up breaks on his MPC and is now up to his third artist album, the intriguingly titled Salvation. Its twelve tracks introduce dense soundscapes and clever samples over rough, funky rhythms, providing fuel to the DJs and head-nodders alike. Highlights on this Cold Busted release include the bouncy and somewhat spacey “When I See Your Smile”, the wistful yet playful “Can’t Find It”, and the surprisingly cosmic “Such A Long Time”. Kill Emil’s constructions contain many twists and turns within the layers … this imaginative producer keeps things interesting for the full run of his captivating album. Expand your mind and find Salvation . All Good Funk Alliance - "Nice beats and samples here … I'm digging this." Mark Farina - "I'm liking a few of these tracks."
