Glows - Hold Hold
Hold Hold is the second track from Glows rollout of material this summer as an officially formed duo. Whilst still taking inspiration from a web of conceptual and anthropological references, the track marks a departure from the personal narratives of the JL HOOKER EP. Led by an interest in communal gathering and the shared experience offered through dance music and club culture, it’s the first track from a new phase in which their kaleidoscopic approach is geared towards a more outward focus. Following the often melancholic JL EP and the underlying hum of anxiety on latest single Tropics, Hold Hold still maintains and channels these emotions. It’s release marks the decision to wrestle them up and outwards towards a frantic yet euphoric intensity.
Glows - Tropic feat. Asha Lorenz
New track Tropics marks the beginning of a phase in which the duo roll out the database of material they developed in this period of incubation. It’s the first track from a collection of material spanning different phases over the last 6 years, resampled, looped and fused together. Engaging conceptually with the idea of timelines, looping, resampling and the conventions of music releases themselves. Beginning with the Tropics, featuring Asha Lorenz deals with the scattered and overwhelming heat of city life.
Platonica Erotica - I Can't Be Your Everything
Platonica Erotica presents “I Can’t Be Your Everything” is its wistful sibling to debut single ‘Marriage Of Convenience’, referred to by Platonica as ‘the last of my prom music ... I wanted a very clean, dreamy number with a veiled threat in there. I wanted to rip the carpet from underneath that person who didn't want me - to say, "Oh, you don't like a part of me? Well, I'll disappear from you completely."’

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.
