Emily Wells
Emily Wells
Emily Wells has been hailed for her multi-instrumental ambidexterity, a symphonic embroidering of swirling strings, ingenious electronics, and intricate, irresistible beats, sewn together with celestial vocals and deeply personal song-craft. Her new Mama Acoustic Recordings, out June 11th, sees the NYC-based singer/musician/producer casting it all aside, re-imagining songs first heard on 2012's acclaimed Partisan Records debut, Mama . Where that collection was marked by Wells' extraordinary fusion of hip hop, experimental dance music, lyrical introspection, and classical complexity, the new album is stunningly austere, recorded solely with voice and guitar. Songs like "Dirty Sneakers" refract the singer and songwriter in a fresh light, illuminating altered emotional perspectives and melodic colors. With Mama Acoustic Recordings, Emily Wells has stripped off her own armor, leaving only her crystalline voice and equally unambiguous songwriting on display.
Lorna Dune
Praised by VICE Magazine as the "mistress of new music" and named as one of 2014's Artists to Watch by The Fader, Lorna Dune has been turning heads since her foray into the world of electronic minimal techno production. An experimental pianist, who has played with likes of Steve Reich and the Philip Glass Ensemble, has a new take on weightier beat-driven techno which is both fresh in its approach to the genre and also a unique arrival through her journey through sound. Almost synesthesia-like images of "trawling Petar Dundov's Adriatic waters with an arresting sheer Balearic decadence and holographic gleam" (Resident Advisor) appear in the amygdala upon first listen.

Her latest EP "Miamisphere" released by Brooklyn's mysterious experimental electronic imprint Lo Bit Landscapes in 2013 has received premieres by Pitchfork and Boiler Room and has been featured in Resident Advisor, Red Bull Music Academy, VICE Magazine, XLR8R, Ibiza Voice and more. She has also caught the attention of the New York Times for remixing a Pulitzer Prize winning work by composer Caroline Shaw and also has an upcoming remix by composer Max Richter to be released on Detusche Grammophon.

Lorna Dune's highly anticipated full-length album "Transmutation" is set to be released in Spring 2015.
