DIVVAS - Challenger Deep

Life is not a feature film, when the drums sound you feel a real emotion. Corinne Nora sings this with a vocal skill close to Beth Gibbons - shortly before "KOAC" sinks into a dissonant sound avalanche. - Artnoir

Fran Lobo- Brave EP

In her first solo body of work North London’s Fran Lobo, looks to the sounds of the city’s club scene joining together a heady mix of melty yet powerful vocals, drum machines, and analogue synthesizer for a truly individual piece of work.

The EP details difficulty in overcoming addiction and grief and acknowledges the pressure women often feel to ‘save face’ or be seen as ‘brave’. Looking at the utility of breaking down and rebuilding, reclaiming and redefining identity,  Brave is that loud glow and confident glisten after it’s rained all night. - Love Letters

"The composer and instrumentalist has worked with some Clash favourites, including Floating Points. Steeped in choral tradition, she's able to meld this with electronic enquiries, something exposed on her new EP"

Uma - Bel・li

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.

“an intimate encompassment of her past and present in one”

SLOW DANCE '19

Slow Dance ‘19 is the London music collective and record label’s fourth annual compilation, featuring tracks from collaborating or admired musicians and producers from the past year. It is the longest and most varied one yet, with 18 tracks by incredible new artists, who are asked to submit a track that they feel wouldn’t fit in a standard release. In previous years, the compilations have provided a platform for artists from bands such as Black Midi, Black Country, New Road, Sorry and Goat Girl to release more experimental solo projects as well as giving an opportunity to completely new, unsigned artists. Throughout the year, Slow Dance put an enormous effort into finding the most interesting and promising new acts and the compilation is an opportunity to highlight and provide a platform for this. It acts as a summary of the label’s highlights from artists and tracks of 2019 and things to watch for 2020 - from both within and outside of the label’s own roster.
