The debut release from Swiss avant-pop duo DIVVAS, split with Zurich label BlauBlau. DIVVAS’ first song to grow out of improvisation, it tells a tale of codependence, in which a man’s relationship to wider authority is compared to benevolent poisoning. Of the song they say: ‘[it] is dealing with this conditioned relationship with the trained dog following its master’s orders’
The debut EP from Uma. Understanding Uma’s childhood is essential in comprehending her work. Born in Catalonia in 1995 to a British mother, trained in Performance Art, and a Thai father, working in a hospice in the slums of Bangkok, Uma’s upbringing of travel and diversity in encounters has inspired chords of empathy and the affinity to those around her bleeds naturally into her music. Her music is defined by its emotional depth and fragile strength.
‘Keep The Light Inside The House’ is the latest offering from Saint Jude. The bedroom producer from Forest Hill, South London, first assumed the Saint Jude pseudonym in 2019 ahead of releasing his debut self-titled EP in October. This was the first musical offering that brought his songwriting and vocal skills to the fore and included the singles ‘Head Is Spinning’ and ‘Deaf Ears, Blind Years’. ‘Keep The Light Inside The House’ is the follow up. Once again making Jude’s vocals a distinct part of the process, all composed off the cuff with no prior planning to how it might evolve, it documents a stream of consciousness from the contents of Judes head one solitary session in his room, very fitting with the stark realities we find ourselves in across the world right now. Prior to the ‘Saint Jude’ EP last year, and since his late teens, Saint Jude created exquisitely composed electronic music out of his bedroom under his own name Jude Woodhead. Taking inspiration from the club music of Four Tet, Jamie xx, Floating Points and Mount Kimbie, Jude released his deconstructed club tracks on Slow Dance and in turn enjoyed the live element and a club-going lifestyle that this scene afforded him. However, when Jude developed serious tinnitus he was forced out of the clubs and into his bedroom again.
Slow Dance is a London based music collective, label, radio and promotions company started in 2015.
