BLUE SKY BLACK DEATH warp records
Blue Sky Black Death is an accomplished West Coast production duo. Their sound transforms the raw into the refined through technically building layers that exceed the boundaries of any one particular musical genre. Often a single track will involve a violin, cello, keyboard, and guitar mixed with live vocals and abstract samples. Every song compiles and manipulates to make the music engage on several levels, and each album surpasses the next in expectation thus creating surprise. Their name borrowed from the skydiving term, beauty before death, mirrors their longevity and ability to bring back to life, dead and forgotten dimensions.
BSBD has received praise from such publications as Pitchfork, The Fader, Complex, Forbes, LA Times, Spin, XXL Magazine, Stereogum, Rock Sound, The Source, Noisey, Wired Magazine, Prefix Magazine, URB, The Fox Is Black, Pigeons and Planes, Passion of the Weiss, Hypetrak, Pop Matters, and more, and their music has led them to receive world wide recognition.
ALIGNING MINDS Gravitas Recordings / Aleph Zero
Aligning Minds is the unique and captivating collaboration of two producers using sound to achieve a mutual vision. Ethereal and dubby, uplifting and haunting, their music winds its way through the imaginative souls of its listeners, offering a deep exploration of subsonic mood and emotional atmosphere. Focused on unifying electronic music through diverse influence, their sound fuses elements of many genres like downtempo, dubstep, breakbeat and idm - but without the need for formulaic restrictions.
RBTS WIN Tidal Prism
RBTS WIN is Javier Bolea and Cliff B. Worsham - a sample-based/psych-pop production duo heavily influenced by the sounds of soul and R&B. The band is known for their emotionally charged live performances using a feast of analog synthesizers, drum machines, guitars and vocals. The music they create has also been described as dark wave or chill-hop.
The group formed in 2008 shortly after Javier moved from his hometown of sun-drenched Miami, FL to the mountain oasis of Cliff's origins in Asheville, NC. After meeting through mutual friends the two quickly began exchanging song ideas and found that they had a special musical relationship. Javier speaks on their chemistry: "I feel like the juxtaposition of our worlds has everything to do with our sound and the energy we put out. The tropical beaches and these mystical mountains have truly met halfway within these creations."
As much as their new album Palm Sunday eschews formula or convention, there are themes (love, spirit, connection, nature) throughout, along with musical references to the natural world as filtered through electronic instruments. The album is the band's most fully-realized effort to date, a culmination of years of experimentation, personal growth, deepening friendship and an unrelenting exploration of melody, beats and words.
Palm Sunday was recorded in Asheville, NC at Tidal Prism Studio and the converted cathedral, Echo Mountain. The cover was designed by long-time RBTS collaborator Kent Hernandez.
The band has played with the likes of Toro y Moi, Future Islands, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Prefuse 73, Nite Jewel, Lazer Sword, Mount Kimbie, Blue Sky Black Death, Tanlines, MillionYoung, The Sounds, Marley Carroll, Foreign Exchange, Otto Von Schirach, Polyphonic & Serengeti and Foxy Shazam. They have also performed at Miami's Winter Music Conference, Hopscotch Festival and Moogfest 2010, 2012 & 2014.
