Italian electronic pop prodigy L I M has unveiled the title of her sophomore mini-album “HIGHER LIVING”, which we’re really proud to release together with Italian tastemaker label La Tempesta. L I M also shared the record’s opening track “YSK”, which can be heard below. We’re beyond honored to work together with such a forward-thinking musician, this is the first of many to come.
HÅN comes from a small town by the Garda lake, far from grey industrial landscape, immersed on magnificent natural treasures. Her debut single ‘The Children’ is an intense pop gem in which spacious synths and delicate guitar chords collide with pulsating electro drums and pristine vocals. Melancholic, profound, captivating: this is the world of HÅN.
A truly delicate and emotional introspective journey, ‘GAME OVER’ is the second single off L I M’s debut EP ‘Comet‘ (La Tempesta, 2016). It’s a dark yet enlighting surrendering to the end of a relationship; it’s seeing and dancing in the dark, with the ghost of a failed love haunting dreams in a space between reality and revelation. The track floates between liquid mid-tempo R&B and vapor disco, mixing Detroit’s ambient classic elements and textures while planting its roots in Aphex Twin’s “Ambient Works” misty memories.
Over the course of two albums in four years, and an armful of EPs and singles, Mauro Remiddi has crafted a celestial body of work that drifts in and out of dream states.
Under the name Porcelain Raft, he has been a slippery artist to pin down, perhaps by design. You might think he’s an electronic pop musician adept at sound collages, which he is, but he’s also a singer and songwriter who has trained a gimlet eye on his place in the world.
Microclimate, his latest release, reveals Remiddi at the peak of his songwriting prowess.
We last heard from Italian born singer-songwriter Porcelain Raft over the summer of 2015 when he gave us the Half Awake EP, it was the first release for Mauro Remiddi, the project’s mastermind in almost 2 years. The EP was a welcome return and showed an artist continuing to push not only his own boundaries but explore the realms of dreamy, hazy, synth based pop. Half Awake was a release for fans to dig their teeth into especially for those who fell for his debut LP Strange Weekend and now he has returned with his third full length Microclimate, his biggest sounding and most expansive collection of songs to date.
