Michelle Chamuel – Face the Fire


This is the first single from the Michelle’s full length album due out February of 2015.  The vocals are front and center and more intimate than previous outings.  The music production is modern pop and would sound great on any road trip mix tape.

Tapetenwechsel – Feel You (Radio Edit)


Here’s one that picks up the night, it’s by Tapetenwechsel out of Germany.   Soniclly mesmerizing with the it’s give and pull on the chords.

Sylas – Shore


Broken soul mixed with fractured drums and layered textures makes this track sound out.

Short bio:

The EP is finished completed with Layer, featuring newcomer Jelani Blackman and the not-so-newcomer, Brian Eno… they guys have been collaborating on various projects throughout the year of which Eno returned the favour and features on their track, not bad for a debut release.

Karl Kling – I Will Wait


Yes, some new Karl Kling.  I was initially introduce to him by way RAC when they joined forces to form The Pragmatic (The Pragmatic – Rendezvous).  Since first listen of Rendezvous, Karl has always been a vocalist I would love to work with under my “Odd Year” moniker. So much so, I even reached out to him several years back, but perhaps one day I’ll be able too (keeping fingers crossed).  Till then, we have new single that was just released today named, “I Will Wait” — fitting, no?



The Seshen – Shapes



The interplay of Trip Hop, Electronica, Soul and Pop is done with exquisite taste.  Shapes is taken from the just released EP named,  Unravel.

The Unravel EP is centered around beat-driven compositions with rich electronic textures and lilting melodies. Hints of psychedelia, hip hop, dub and indie rock are scattered throughout to create a layered sound that is both fluid and grounded in a diverse array of influences.
