Calm - You Can See The Sunrise Again
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ I said everything has an ending - not forever, but when you are alive, you can challenge as many endings as you can. The message here is morning will always come. I used many major chords and a few minor chords. The main melody is positive and poppy. This song is the end of this album, but the beginning of a new life for you and me.

Calm - My Home Town
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ Most people have a hometown, myself included. My hometown is very very rural - no buildings, lots of nature. Every time I walk to my home from the station, many thoughts come and go; past, future, fiction, dreams, etc. These thoughts are different from when I am in Tokyo. My highlight here is my guitar - dub many times - dubbing many times is important for me. This melody is very bluesy I think. At the ending, you can listen to full instrumentation - especially drum and bluesy guitar. Sentimentality and positivity is the message here.

Calm - Shade Of Tree
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ Like 'Ending of Summer, Beginning of Autumn', this is inspired by the view from my studio. There are many trees around my house. In the afternoon, I can see the sunlight filtering through the trees and shadow. My studio has a view. When you walk in the summer, the shade of trees makes you cool down and you can take a rest. Before listening to this album, please take a rest.

Calm - Mellow Mellow Sadness
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ This title is inspired from Quincy Jones' classic 'Mellow Mellow Madness'. Groove is important. The basslines are simple but strong, the drums are also simple and groovy. I recorded a wooden trash can as a rim shot. This trash can rim shot is very important. I could put impressive reverb on this trash can rim. Conversion from digital to analogue is important for me.

Calm - Before Landing
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ You can draw many images from the phrase “Before Landing”. I ran a party called 'Bound for Everywhere' for 12 years. I would DJ from open to the end. Before ending the party, I would feel sentimental and tired. Make it last forever. I love this Japanese sentence: 'Syogyo Mujyo' - Everything has an ending, not forever, so you have to do your best and enjoy yourself. This slow dance groove gives you the sign (chime) that the plane will make its landing.

Calm - Shadows And Lights
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ This song is the sub-main track of this album. I love taking pictures. Nice pictures need shadows and lights, and our human life has shadows and lights. We have good times and sometimes bad happenings. Both are important. The last part of this song is going to open the door of heaven.

Calm - Sky, Color, Passing
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ This song is also sunset-themed. When I DJ during sunset, the spectacle is different every time. But every time I can see the colour of the sky is changing moment by moment. Most people enjoy the moment of sunset, but before and after that moment is also beautiful and sometimes sentimental. This song will show you these feelings.

Calm - Ending Of Summer, Beginning Of Autumn
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ I can see many trees and lots of nature from my studio window. I can listen to many cicada singing - so loud. At the end of August last year, before sunset, I suddenly confused the season. I like vagueness on the boundary line of things. The main point of sound is an analogue synth: a Sequential Circuits Six Trak. The melody from this synth has many harmonics. This sound is like insects of summer.

Calm - Afterglow And First Star
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ This song is the main image of this album. When I found the organ melody, I believed this album would be bound to succeed. And now - my favourite thing is to DJ during sunset. Sunset time is amazing but also moments of afterglow are wonderful. This song is a soundtrack for those moments.

Calm - Space Is My Place
Hell Yeah Recordings

https://www.theransomnote.com/music/news/track-by-track-calm-by-your-side/ This song is the first song on the record, and also the first in the making of this album. My concept on this album was to keep each song under six minutes in length. This song, however, I could not shorten, because it needs two parts: the first part has beauty, the second has sentimental feelings. I recorded many vocal harmonies by myself and recorded many guitar tracks by myself. The key to this song is the reverb effect. 'Space' means outside of the earth and inside yourself. CALM

Max Essa - Rainbird's Alfalfa Jam
Hell Yeah Recordings

A year after his debut outing on the label, @MaxEssa makes a welcome return to Hell Yeah with the Han zon Roc EP, which is another of his impossibly laidback offerings. Essa is of course the long time UK talent who has become a part of the Balearic mafia thanks to releases on labels like Aficionado, Music for Dreams, and his own Jansen Jardin. This is the second coming together of artist and label and is another timeless excursion far out to sea. Opener ‘Han zon Roc (Midori Coup)' is an epic 12 minute adventure that slowly awakens your spirit with new age guitar plucks and heavenly ambience before organic drums slowly being to drift into earshot. They grow ever larger as synths start to spray about the mix, hand drums pitter patter and big chords bring the soul-shine. It’s like the soundtrack to an afternoon boat party all condensed into one brilliant cut. ‘How You Showed Me Everything’ then gets super chill with lazy drum tumbles, bendy guitar lines and scattered hits. Withering cosmic chords colour the airwaves and its a track that will slow your heartbeat to nothing. Last of all, ‘Rain Bird's Alfalfa Jam’ is a analogue drum work out with early 90s hip hop influences and diving basslines. It’s light and airy, nimble and playful and of course filled with the sort of tropical rays that make all of Essa works so brilliantly escapist.

Gallo feat. Verdo - Little Blue
Hell Yeah Recordings

Hell Yeah welcome back Berlin based Gallo for another fresh new release after his previous Remember to Forget EP made such an impact, while his classic-in-the-making ‘Faron’ (remixed by Fabrizio Mammarella) was played by all the coolest Balearic cats, as well as being the last track of seasonal BALEARIC comp. New signing My Friend Dario also serves up a remix to make this another red hot offering. Gallo is at the heart of the nu-balearic scene and has an expansive record collection and uplifting sound that makes for perfect horizontal listening. He is a member of the Balearic Gabba Sound System and with Hell Yeah boss Marco, and also helms the My Way radio show. For this new one he once again digs deep into ambient electronic escapes. ‘Sverna’ carries you away on a raft, right into the middle of the ocean with the warm sun beating down. The gentle drums lap against your feet as glistening little synths drift by like whispy clouds. On his remix, My Friend Dario layers in some long legged drums that bring you back to shire for a slow motion sunset boogie that is awash with feel good vibes. ‘Deshalb’ (Original Dub Sax Mix) is six hazy minutes of mellow synths and deep water bass that envelops your entire soul. The sax drifts by way up in the skies above and ensure you stay laying flat out on your back, gazing upwards and getting lost in the sonic landscapes. Lastly, ‘Little Blue’ started as a remix for Verdo but has now become a brand new tune featuring that artist instead. It’s impossibly beachy and open air, with tumbling toms and soft synths building to an utterly seductive high. A beatless mix is also included for those who prefer it even more masterfully mellow.

Kito Jempere - Ampa (Max Essa Dub Reprise)
Hell Yeah Recordings

After putting out Kito Jempere’s well received Sea Monsters album last year, Hell Yeah now serve up another selection of remixes of it. Accomplished musician Jimi Tenor, plus Miskotom and Max Essa all contribute before a 7”, also taken from the album, lands later in summer. First up is Jimi Tenor, the legendary Finnish musician who has released on Warp, collaborated with Tony Allen and has his own band as well as occasionally playing sax with Kito Jempere Band at live gigs. He flips Puzzled into five minutes of stripped back and moody electronics with plenty of his own flute playing in the track. Busted drum sounds, spooky sci-fi synths and scattered hits make it woozy and late night and utterly absorbing. Miskotom—a newly emerging pair made up of Mik and his wife Andra, both based in Vilnius, Lithuania with credits on Pleasure Unit and Balearic —then reimagine ‘Ampa’ as a beatdown but of deep house with trudging drums staying low and shimmering synths drift out in all directions. Crunchy hits bring a subtle sense of funk and reverb drenched vocals bring a heavenly feel to the soul drenched grooves and summery keys. Then comes Max Essa, the Japan based Brit who is a regular on this label as well as the likes of Is It Balearic?. His first remix is a huge one that is sure to soundtrack many a boat party this summer. It’s a gorgeous rework of ‘Ampa’ that puts achingly blissful vocals front and centre as low slung bass and slowly turning drums sink you into a pan-pipe laced reverie. Secondly, Essa offers a Dub Reprise that removes the vocals and places all the focus on his churning drums and new age grooves. This is another perfect package of masterfully electronic horizontal sounds.

Calm - By Your Side (2LP - snippets)
Hell Yeah Recordings

Snippets don't make justice to music but the world goes like this... As always with Hell Yeah, the next release comes from an artist label boss Marco fell utterly in love with before forming a close musical relationship. His name is Calm, and this summer he releases his eighth studio album, 'By Your Side'. It is an effortlessly evocative long player and magical ten track trip into soothing sonic waters, glistening harmonies and horizontal rhythms. Calm is Japanese artist Fukagawa Kiyotaka, someone who has been making deep house, ambient and downtempo grooves since the late nighties, and always teasing spine tingling emotions out of his machines. His last album—2015’s From My Window—cast a real spell on Marco and encouraged him to reach out. The pair eventually hooked up in Tokyo and found real musical kinship while playing records together. “Apart being a wonderfully calm person, he went straight into my top five selectors,” says Marco. “His taste and music programming are simply delicious. His set was one aural discovery after the other.” The album comes with special artwork by Andrea Amaducci and takes in some sure-to-be-big tunes that are already being supported by those who know such as Moonboots, Chris Coco, Phil Mison, Mixmaster Morris. Majestic opener ‘Space Is My Place’ transports you straight to a blue sky paradise with rippling chords reflecting the warm sun and is ripe to become a modern classic. From there Calm’s masterful synths keep you flat on your back and gazing up to the heavens as gently drums roll beneath the brilliant ’Afterglow and First Star’ and then ‘Ending of Summer, Beginning of Autumn’ is a little more reflective as it rues the end of warmer days. ‘Sky, Colour, Passing’ is floating celestial bliss with angelic harmonies, ‘Shadows and Lights’ is a lazy Sunday soundtrack with delicate piano keys and the gentle chug of ‘Before Landing’ glows with cosmic light and warms you with astral disco grooves that will be the jewel in any open air DJ set. After the sensuous moments of ‘Mellow Mellow Sadness’ encourage you to reach out and hug someone close, ‘Shade of Tree’ washes over you like a seaside breeze before the final two tracks layer up synth modulations and quietly epic guitars into rousing pieces of slow motion euphoria. 'By Your Side' is a quietly epic album of wide open synth tracks that reach for the skies and leave you castaway on a breathtaking desert island.

Somerville & Wilson - Yantar EP (12" snippets)
Hell Yeah Recordings

After releasing their Yantar LP digitally last year, Hell Yeah now serve up a much anticipated vinyl version of Richard Somerville and Craig Wilson’s perfectly horizontal sounds. It features two of the superb originals with remixes from The Beat Broker and Los Gatos Escobar. Somerville & Wilson have appeared on ISM Records, DWDK (Danny Was A Drag King), Paper Records and Music for Dreams and count the likes of Tensnake and Gerd Janson as fans of their laidback and charming grooves, and this EP is a real slab of heat that will surely sizzle souls across the world this summer. 
 First up, The Beat Broker proves he is on fire right now with a remix of the classic ‘Melt.’ His heart swelling remix has impossibly mellow chords ringing out into a yellow-orange sky as melodies rise and fall like a yacht bobbing on gentle waters. It’s a blissed out musical sunset of the highest order. Then comes Somerville & Wilson’s ’Cero Gravity’, eight minutes of cosmic synth workouts, yawning chords and long legged drums offset by soft acid. Drenched in reverb and rippling out in all directions, it’s a warm musical rush that keeps washing over you until your soul melts away. 
 From New York, Los Gatos Escobar duo offer a more driving but just as tropical remix of ‘Yantar’ with big rubbery drums, zoned out chords and smeared pads. It’s beautifully innocent and honest, heartfelt and meditative music that encourages you to escape to a seaside paradise. Last of all, a melted Space Edit of Yantar is drowned in saturated chords, scorched pads and heat damaged keys that leave you adrift in a sea of sumptuousness. 
 Music doesn’t come much more majestic, melodic and mellow than this.
