More vocally focused track with subtle electronic elements that are rather sultry.
Latest offering from Teeel on Mush Records is a disco/new wave pop blend.
TEEEL (Jim Smith) is a electronic music producer/songwriter from New Jersey, founder of Synth Records (Synthemesc Recordings) and iheartsynths.com. Inspired by the 80s new wave movement, Teeel credits his sound to marathon movie watching and being an obsessive gear head. Creating music in a 10×10 teal painted room, stacked with synthesizers and guitars, TEEEL produces music that ranges from hypnotic vocal synthpop to dreamwave and dark electronic rock.
TEEEL’s critically-acclaimed debut album, “Amulet” (Moodgadget Records, 2011) has generated quite the buzz in the blog world as well as being featured on KEXP radio, ISO50.com, Boomkat, and more. With a slew of remixes and and singles his sophomore album “University Heights” was later self-released on Synth Records in 2012. His continued success has lead to playing more live shows and recently working with a band to elevate his live performances.
Although Teeel is a fairly new project, Jim Smith is no rookie to the music industry. Running his own record label, performing in multiple bands and professionally DJing hundreds of parties since the mid 90s, he’s been very busy. Taking the stage as TEEEL with an arsenal of synthesizers, controllers, guitars and effects, his captivating and powerful performances have grabbed interest across the world. With the addition of guitarist Stephen Chladnicek for SXSW, and recent appearances across the US, TEEEL continues to capture the crowd’s imagination and push forward into the future.
Moxi is an indie pop duo from Los Angeles, CA, built on the dreamy vocals of Anna Nelson and surrounded by the moody, atmospheric keyboards of Andy Toy. Drawing on elements from pop, classic cinema, and 80?s new wave, Moxi sets Nelson’s distinct vocals on a backdrop of big drums and electronic textures. ”Through the Dark”, the follow up EP to 2013?s “In My Dreams” lives up to its name as darker, more beat-driven, and more of a wanderer than it’s predecessor. Teaming up with Emmy award winning producer Bobby Hartry, Moxi plans to release “Through The Dark” in the fall of 2014 with Catbeach music.
