Aga Ujma - Songs Of Innocence and Experience

Song of Innocence and Experience, is named after a William Blake set of illustrated poems. Aga has a love of poetry and literature that can be felt in her lyrics. Her sound follows the contemporary folk cannon of Bjork, Múm, Eivør, CocoRosie and Current 93, blending traditional folk with minimal avant-garde production methods and Eastern instrumentation. Her glacial vocals, underpinned by the delicate plucking of an Indonesian sasando and golden passages of gender barung, make her EP a beautiful homage to two very different places that are close to her heart.



Saint Jude - Bodies of Water

His vibrant second EP, Bodies Of Water, is out physically and digitally 16th April 2021, with the teasing of his debut album on the horizon. Alongside this EP marks the beginning of a partnership between his long-term UK label and collective Slow Dance Records and US label tmwrk Records (Grady, Molly Payton, Herizen, Onyx Collective)

Aga Ujma - Night

Announcing her debut EP ‘Songs Of Innocence and Experience’ Aga Ujma shares lead single ‘Night.’ Inspired by Pauline Oliveiros’ Sonic Meditations Aga Ujma’s ‘Night’ was formed from a poem written in response to the listening exercises. Number 5 meditations instructions are as follows: “Take a walk at night. Walk so silently that the bottoms of your feet become ears”  - “ I would walk, dance by myself on the street, imagine I am dancing on the rooftops and on the top of cars and phone booths. There is this beautiful sports centre where me and my housemates would sneak into and roam around when coming home from a night out, it is such a breathtaking space when no one else is around”

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.
