Abelard, Melbourne’s glitterwave band launched a new EP calles Meta Valley, the music is chilled upbeat and dreamy.
Life Beneath the Veneer
Meta Valley is a bitter-sweet portrait of fractured homelife, dischordant and exclusive nightlife, and, destructive day-to-day life of a homogenous corporate culture. Meta Valley is about seeing beyond appearance, fronts, looks and attitudes and recognising “human beings”.
Meta Valley is about sharing the deepest of experiences together—conflict, love, loss, elation, shame, joy, grief. These experiences of vulnerability teach you, above all else, you are human. You are not alone in the world and you are loved.
released 19 March 2015
Written and Produced by Ignatius Gilfedder (Abelard)

Clap! Clap! is a new project by the italian producer C. Crisci, focused on research and sampling of tribes, bands and singers originating from the African continent. Its strong personality is characterised by the work on the used samples, extremely eclectic and as percussive as possible.
His distinguishing technique is to reproduce classic African rhythms in a contemporary way, through the use of drum machines and synths.
The keywords of this experience are ‘future roots’ and ‘future rhythm.’ Clap! Clap! is trying to convey a continuous dance that is febrile, tribal and hyperkinetic, but always balanced by the elegance and the essentiality of the elements used.
Summer electro pop with africfun haring pop aesthetics.
“Easily as colorful as their artwork, Fantastic Fantasic live up to the name in all aspects of the word. At the first glimpse they might remind you of Jungle (keywords: two guys, black jackets, London, electronic pop), but Fantastic Fantastic are far more playful than the former: there’s layers and layers of quirky effects packed into pop brilliance, and it comes with this easy breezy Summer wind that just puts a giant smile on your face.” via disco naïveté
