Pola & Bryson Lost In Thought 'Lost In Thought' is the debut album on Shogun Audio by duo Pola & Bryson. With sophistication beyond their young years, this long player is an evolution, taking their music to a new level. The cinematic soundscape 'When You Call (Intro)' sets the tone for an extremely mature and accomplished record. The first single from the project is '24/7', a blossoming blend of their trademark atmospherics and dance floor energy. With genre spanning support, it's a round the clock roller. 'Night Dawns' featuring the luminous vocals of Lauren Archer is another example of the majestic grasp Pola & Bryson have on their production. Coaxing every note out of hibernation, the track blooms into one of the most beautifully cultivated tracks of the year. Another seamless transition from the smouldering 'Dusk (Interlude)' gives life to 'Dream Days', a textbook gem with 'Floodgates' further certifying their engineering abilities. Tunes like the garage licked 'Waves' are a graceful breath of fresh air, 'Stratford Riddim' draws on animated beats and the down tempo 'Hades' ebbs and flows with life. 'No One But You' with Brookfield provides rich phonics sat on a subtle piano foundation, glistening with the class which is abundant throughout the LP. The closing track 'Southbank (Outro)' is a moving piece which engulfs you with sonic class and is the perfect conclusion, leaving you desperate for more. We challenge any listener not to become deeply rooted as a part of this record. Like a film score to modern life, this genuinely will leave you 'Lost In Thought'. Shogun Audio LP
Joe Ford Colours In Sound Joe Ford is a producer painting pictures with his sounds. Like any artist true to their craft, his long-awaited debut album 'Colours In Sound' is as experimental as it is complete. Unveiling the melodic magic of 'Said' to the brutalist impact of 'Tomb Raver', this album delivers from start to finish. 'Where Is The Sun' is an enigmatic opener which grows on the listener as quickly as the track sprouts from itself. Undulating synths and a hot stepper of a beat drive you forward. Collaborations include 'Out Of Place' with Memtrix, 'Care For Me' with Document One, 'Made Of Glass' with Koven and 'Adrenaline' featuring rap-metal band, Hacktivist. Materials blend seamlessly across the tracks as the artists combine to create an exhibition of sonic fascination. The thing which sets this album apart from a sea of imitators can be measured by its effects on the senses. Phonic delights like 'Cosine' and 'Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants' bounce off the intensity of 'Guess What' and 'Take The Lead', all of which merge into figures growing from the speakers around you. Joe Ford's vision is crystal clear on 'Colours In Sound' - what is set to be his most successful and focused work to date. While techniques change and the world moves from one space to the next, talent remains the one constant. Make sure you hear 'Colours In Sound' and produce a picture of your own. Shogun Audio LP
My Nu Leng Portal EP Having become one of the UK’s most exciting acts over the past few years releasing their bass-heavy brand of garage and grime across labels like Black Butter and MTA, My Nu Leng go back to their roots as they deliver their very first drum & bass EP. And as you’d expect from a duo who’ve been drawn in to remix the likes of Naughty Boy, Rudimental and Clean Bandit, it’s big and it’s very, very clever. Shogun Audio 12"
