Warriors of the Dystotheque return to their own label Fly Beat Music for the release of the 1st track from the forthcoming new album, LOST IN YOUR SILENCE features the vocal talents of Lydia Kaye (Kalahara) and has been produced on a remote island off the coast of France by the self proclaimed musical nomad, the legendary HOWIE B (Bjork, Massive Attack, Tricky).
LOST IN YOUR SILENCE see’s WotD return to their jazz influenced broken beat sound and immersive vocals with Lydia.
“I was thrilled to team up the Warriors for their new release and had an instant affinity with this track, I was inspired by the jazz tipped style, reminiscent of the music I grew up with, it’s the kind of music I always wanted to make.
I felt a real sense of freedom working on this song. It was really fresh and exciting to work with a new palette of sounds alongside an awesome collective of musicians that let me do my thing.
The melody came instinctively and led me into this unresolved feeling of unrequited love,We’ve all been there – when the pain of waiting to hear from someone, leaves you in limbo and can have a maddening and numbing effect on your mind.
Now having worked on this track with the Warriors we’re gonna do a few more for the forthcoming album, which I’m super excited about. ” LK
In addition to the title track is An Island Affair Ft Abby Oliveira, Abby delivers spoken word over a lush string laden downtempo groove where she reminisces of all the years gone by visiting the White Isle and how we would swap our current lives in lockdown for another trip to the island of Ibiza.
Lost in Your Silence and An Island Affair comes with remixes from Cartin and Ken Fan.
Cartin is a 23 year old producer from Derry who has came to the attention of Jonny from WotD due to his successful Acid Flex nights in Derry & Belfast as well as releases on established Belfast label Extended Play, also emerging as 2020’s AVA festival producer.
Ken Fan is no stranger to the Balearic world with his residency at the world famous Cafe del Mar – Ibiza as past 7 years and he has recently taken the sounds of the Island to Radio 1 with the Wind Down show on Saturday mornings.
Catch him daily at Cafe del Mar playing his extra long Sunset sessions.
Pier-O presents his Ep “Whisky and Cigars” – Jazzy, Laidback Ep featuring two tracks “Cocktail Tune” and ” Whisky and Cigars”.
Enjoy the relaxing vibes!
Out next on Iono-Lounge is Shabboo Harper with a two-tracker release. ‘Strange Without You Here’ is a soft, slow, deep song with warm pads, emotional lines & a melancholy vocal. The track is smooth, wistful & moving. ‘On the Other Side’ is a downbeat track with punchy precession, spellbinding lines & a haunting vocal. The track transports you to a ghostly, eerie, yet mesmerising & strangely inviting unidentified place. Together this release brings you light & shade sadness & joy, solemnness & enrichment.
