Lav & Purl

ASIP - MNMT Label Showcase

 
MNMT.png

Believe it or not, over the past six years (since our very first label release in 2013) I haven’t put together a label showcase mix. However, this year I find myself sitting on an amazing amount of upcoming music, so when MNMT Podcast asked me to put together a label mix, I went all in. I tend to hold on to previewing upcoming music, so it makes me a little nervous to put this out there but hopefully you all get a sense of the amazing albums we have coming up.

60% of the music in this mix is upcoming on ASIP, so get ready for some new and exciting moments alongside some familiar sounds…

For more info on the mix and a short Q&A, head over to Monument.

 

Lav & Purl / A State Of Becoming - Now Available

“When we bring our full attention to the act of listening, new worlds emerge that we wouldn’t even notice if we were just passing by, distracted by thoughts”
— Lav & Purl

Developed around intricate sound recordings, A State of Becoming is an otherworldly and spiritual take on nature and being. Organic landscapes turn into ethereal scenes of movement and life across six expansive and immersive recordings, from the hearts and minds of Sweden's, Lav & Purl.  

Featuring stunning custom artwork by Noah M / Keep Adding. Now available in digital and 2LP dusky pink vinyl over on Bandcamp.

PLEASE NOTE. The final delivery of  the vinyl has been delayed. You can still secure your copy of the vinyl at Bandcamp, and it will ship when it arrives - currently expected in March, potentially earlier. You can also sign up to be notified when Juno will receive their (150) copies here where they have cheaper shipping to Europe and ROW.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the album so far and a special shout to Mary Anne Hobbs of BBC Radio 6 who has been giving it some amazing airplay.

 
 

todos - Kilchurn Session XV

 

It's 2017. It's almost February. Over the past six-or-so months, someone's been digging away at every corner of the web to find that perfect track for his infamous mix series. It's not an easy task as you'll know by his Cold Shoulders mix; plenty of music falls by the wayside in the process. It's what makes each edition of todos' Kilchurn Sessions that much more curated, synchronized and free-flowing than most of the mixes out there. 

This time, todos returns with some familiar faces to fall out the 2016 music hall of fame, including the melodic synths of Steve Hauschildt and Jonathan Fitoussi, two of ASIP's own, in Lav & Purl and 36, a new one from series stalwart Negative Neutron, and plenty of todos' trademark edits, overlapping textures and bursting mixing creativity.

Lav & Purl - The Present Moment

 

Lav & Purl have existed as individual artists for a while now, with both making appearances on the collective Dewtone, and Purl  also contributing his unique, melodic pulsing ambience on Silent Season, with the much loved album, 'Stillpoint'

The Present Moment is the second release by the duo, after the recently released EP 'Earth And Beyond' on their own label, Amone RecordingsThis delicate, nurtured track, combines beautiful sound recordings from Lav (Christopher Landin) alongside piano and drifting melodies from Purl, (Ludvig Cimbrelius). I won't get into much further detail on this track however, as it's the start of something much bigger...

This track was a part of a larger album originally, but earned its own release as it distinguished itself from the other tracks with a softer, calmer atmosphere. The remaining tracks from this production will form ASIP's seventh vinyl release, titled 'A State Of Becoming' and arriving in early 2017 on double vinyl. 

So, here's a taster of what's to come!
