pwrTALK - Nobu

Nobu Matsuhisa changed the world by blending the culinary tradition of Japanese sushi with the spice of Peruvian ingredients, and by presenting his creations in an upscale lounge environment.  In Nobu (Omakase 69) pwrTALK strives to pay homage to his vision by creating a soundtrack to perfectly compliment the combination of silky, luscious fish and sensually evocative ambiance.

pwrTALK is a bicoastal electronic collaboration between Ben Flesch and Ryan Lynch.  Finding inspiration from the hot springs of Ojai to the Russian bathhouses of New York City, pwrTALK strives to push the boundaries of experience through sound.  The duo has performed in a variety of spaces, from art galleries and rock venues to boats and massage parlors, and has even started their own DIY music festival pwrFEST in Rattlesnake Canyon, CA.  Drawing a clear distinction between recording and live performance, all live shows are improvisational and uniquely tailored to the environment.  Experiencing pwrTALK live has been described as feeling similar to “getting a massage under a freeway overpass,” while their musical interests in the studio range from ambient and experimental to dance heavy anthems, pwrTALK continues to record, perform, and collaborate with conceptual artists around the world

SHINY OBJECTS - SUPERSTITIOUS HIPS

Om Records founder Christopher Smith returns under his Shiny Objects moniker with Superstitious Hips, a heavy brooding new single on Smoke N’ Mirrors. Kicking things off is the original version of the title track. There’s a darkness that builds into a down and dirty body-shaking affair with heavy drums. Up next is the Birds Fly South (Maxxi Soundsystem & Holmar Filipsson from Thugfucker) who takes the track into deeper house territory. Following that is the final cut Twisted Up, a funky booty bouncing house track with tons of old school vibes to round out the single.

SQUIRE - YOUR BODY IS READY, IS YOUR MIND?

The newest single from Barcelona’s Squire dives deeper into late night house grooves for discerning DJs. The first track, Move, Dance, Rewind leads off with a pounding drum and rolling bass line that builds and sways into a steady builder that kicks into high gear with chopped up horns and keys. Track two, Parallel Frames is the heaviest of the bunch, with trippy clattering drums and psychedelic fuzzed out vocals riding the beat. When It Rains Into The Wild wraps up the EP with a dreamy female vocal weaving in and out of the smoky neon haze. Your body is ready, is your mind?

SQUIRE - TRUTHFUL GROOVE

Squire’s “Truthful Groove” EP is a stunning showcase of deep electronic soul. He masterfully weaves psychedelic rhythms with etherial soundscapes unlike any we’ve heard before. The entire EP is a deep journey of dance floor rockers. Both heady and groovy, these cuts are sure to bring energy and character to dance floors across the world.

I’ve been playing Back In Time regularly in my sets and the vibe/crowd reaction is absolutely electric. The trippy electronics and inter dimensional vocals ride perfectly over the percussive beats to create amazing energy.

Bubbling synth layers, and subtle intricate percussion, perfect for a feel-good night where flirting can be difficult to discern as love or lust.
— STEREOGUM

Brooklyn’s Body Language has always embodied something of a sensual mythos. Since their inception in 2008, the band has been known for their restless pop experiments with a future-shocked blend of soul and R&B. With this release, Mythos, they continue to showcase their intimate music with lyrics of longing, desire and lost love. Mythos is seven new tracks and three remixes that carve through remnants of future-shocked R&B, bass and house music. While continuing to push their pop sensibilities into each track, Body Language clearly spells out their keen ability to bend genres to their will and to make their own. With new singles 'Addicted' and 'Can't Hang On', Mythos pushes this quartet forward even further into uncharted waters.

The electro-pop group’s sound brings back the early days of Madonna, evolved through the hypnotic techno mixes of modern pop.

BODY LANGUAGE - CAN'T HANG ON

Following the release of the aptly named addictive track “Addicted”, Body Language shares second single “Can’t Hang On”, a club ready track that showcases upcoming album Mythos’ blend of R&B, bass, pop, and house music. Though the band has been known for a signature blend of “future-shocked soul”, Mythos pushes the quartet even further into unknown sonic territories, making every genre they touch their own. The release of "Can't Hang On" comes complete with a Dub remix from Om Records founder Shiny Objects.

 

SMOKE N' MIRRORS - SAMPLER

Just in time to keep the summer going just a little longer, Smoke N' Mirrors comes correct with a three track deep house sampler. Leading things off is the dark & mysterious 'Sam' from Jimmy V via a Jimmy V and S.pacini remix. It's a heavy trippy psychedelic affair and brings plenty of deep late night headiness. Up next is Sleight of Hands alum DJ M3 with his cut 'Voltaire' that comes sprinkled w/ old school trippiness over a pulsing beat that's sure to light up the dance floor. Last, but certainly not least, Om's head honcho Shiny Objects rounds out the set with his bouncy  'Bring on the Night' that wraps up the collection into a tight cannonball ready to blast through the remaining summer days. 

SHINY OBJECTS - BELDEN LIGHTS

Shiny Objects brings you a heady tune that packs gritty, pulsing bass with dubbed out alien atmospherics. Inspired by many trips to the Sunset Campout in the mountains of California, Belden Lights embodies the psychedelic essence of this truly awe-inspiring gathering. The track packs a heavy vibe with classic rave breaks, converging as golden lasers sparkle on the trees. Those who’ve been to Belden will understand what we mean. Listen closely and Shiny Objects may just beam you up.

The B-Side “Something Special” is a heavy yet deep floor stomper more suitable for your 4AM sweaty underground expeditions. Enjoy!
