Moving his sample-based house music from NNA Tapes and into the bigger studios and larger budgets of Software Recordings, Matt Papich’s Co La project gets amplified and appropriately emboldened. ”Moody Coup” is littered with audio allusions and obscure samples, but most of the album’s 38 minutes is still cut out and fully abstracted from its sonic origins. However, one of the album’s most arresting moments comes when Co La retains his source material entirely. On “Deaf Christian” he keeps the doo-wop grooves of Neil Sedaka and embeds them in synth squiggles and dance beats while former Dirty Projector Angel Deradoorian coos and chants a rhythmic backbone. Overall “Moody Coup” is addictive and lucid in ways deep house rarely is. – Ryan Potts, Experimedia

flau new artist: IKEBANA
IKEBANA, in Japanese, is an art of flower arrangement.
Unlike conventional flower arrangement, it often focuses on other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, rather than its blooms, and lays emphasis toward the shape, line, form of the arrangement.
IKEBANA is about minimalism, about beauty in space, and about calmness.
