Kate NV – Room for the Moon


On Room for the Moon, Kate NV follows the muse of music from one chamber of illusion to the next, harmonizing lunar lullabies with a starry compositional choreography. Conjured from unlived memories of 70s and 80s Russian and Japanese pop music and film, Room for the Moon is a 20th century fairy tale suspended in time like a moon torn from a paper sky.

Josey Rebelle – Josey In Space

Josey In Space, the second installment in Beats In Space‘s mix series, is out May 15 in LP, CD, and digital formats.

Drawing from a kaleidoscope of deeply felt and understood sounds, Josey’s twenty-track mix maps her personal history onto a collective trajectory in dance music. The 12” lifts four essential tracks from the story for DJ-ready use: brand new works from Fotomachine and Shy One, and stone cold classics from Access 58 and Rogue Unit.

Listen to Fotomachine’s “BBoy,” and learn more about Josey In Space, here.
