Bio
Paul Chin is a multidisciplinary artist & designer based in Toronto, ON. He works as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer in the real world, and as a producer and DJ on the internet. Having grown from making breakbeats in his bedroom for a now-defunct rap career to producing more refined, yet less distinct, flavours of electronic music, Paul has self-released two solo EPs and one split EP with Cosmonostro teammate Eli Colburn. His Cosmonostro debut, Fossil, was a runaway success on the 2013 Advent Calendar, and he's finally returned with the full-length effort he's been crafting for months.

Triumph Howl

About
Building on themes and a sound initially explored in Paul Chin's previous EP, Love Letters, The Forest explores the story of the individual and the world surrounding. Inspired by the writings of Donald Miller, the EP traces Chin's dreams for harmonious balance between care for the individual tree, and the greater forest which it is a part of. Chin also enlists frequent collaborator Johanna Wienhølts as a companion storyteller in his latest electronic fable, composing his most thoughtful piece to date.

"I am a tree in a story about a forest" — Donald Miller, A Million Miles In A Thousand Years

The Forest, grabs you from the first note and brings thoughts of passion and love to mind instantly. -Thump

Such Vibes, very bass, wow. Paul Chin’s track is smooth, yet crisp, and packs a whole lotta swagga. -Salacious Sound

With “Triumph Howl” being upbeat & cinematic and “See the Forest” emitting a future R&B vibe, we’re looking forward to see what else Paul’s 4-track release brings to the story of The Forest EP. -The Bass Collective

"With that initial drop & enchanting sample, you’re pulled in immediately, but as the song goes along, you attention may start to fade a bit. However, towards the end things pick back up again, as if to toy with your attention span and music taste." -Hillydilly

Bio
Chief is a dynamic beatmaker, his music has been best described as filling the gap between classic beatmaking and forward thinking production. He's well known both for his solo work and for producing the cream of the cream of both confirmed and upcoming rappers/singers such as Moka Only, Blu, Co$$, John Robinson, Kissey Asplund, Aloe Blacc, Dynas, Les Nubians, Just Brea, Ghostape, Kenn Starr, Tajai or Abstract Rude to name but a few.

Deheb (Prononced «Day-Heb», means gold in arab) started deejaying in 1997 & beatmaking around 2004, producing hip hop beats with a huge funky influence. In 2006, he produced “Top of the block pt.2” for Apani ft.Big Noyd. This first american collaboration was a big turn out in his career, and he's been working with US artists ever since.
He established himself working with mc’s like Apani, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Emilio Rojas or Dynas. Deheb also got recognised and encouraged by artists such as Pharoahe Monch or DJ Spinna. He still works as a dj, and he has opened for Jazzy Jeff and DJ Premier.

CNO52 Persian Empire - Safe Often
Release Date : 11/19/2013


Tracklist
01 Rare Bird
02 Safe Often
03 Lemonade
04 BA03

About
Continuing their showcase of the cream of the European beatmaker crop, Cosmonostro presents Germany’s Persian Empire, delivering another mind-bending slice of the future in the form of his ‘Safe Often’ EP. Fusing found sounds and static crackles with pitch-bent vocals and pianos oozing with melancholy, this is a record that will really tug at your heartstrings.
Opener ‘Rare Bird’ instantly transports the listener to a barren rain-soaked landscape, where a lone voice cries out over gloomy Rhodes chord progressions, before dropping into a sparse and constantly mutating 2-step beat.
Title track ‘Safe Often’ begins with a cinematic and tragic piano melody that sounds like it’s playing out from a long-abandoned gramophone, until another ruthless & weaving beat kicks in again, snapping the listener right back into the present day.
Next up, ‘Lemonade’ lays off the melancholy for a minute, with a slowly building rhythm wrapped around a repeated mantra of ‘easy peasy lemon squeezy’, injecting a short but sweet slice of humour into the otherwise desolate soundscape of the EP.
Closing track ‘BA03’ brings the rainclouds sweeping back over again though, with a slow & churning industrial beat accompanying the pitch-bent plea of a heartbroken lover, begging for a chance to be heard, before a final thundering drumbeat rings out to signal the ominous end of the music.
It’s easy to listen to this EP and draw comparisons to other producers such as Burial, and so many have made desperate attempts to emulate this moody post-apocalyptic sound, but Persian Empire proves himself to be a true master of melancholy whilst keeping things truly innovative and exciting.

Quotes
"So good" -Akeda
"That kind of EP I run in loop to hook up with a girl" -Phazz

Feedback
Through organizing layers of found sounds, stacking them with haunting piano, and smearing on some ghostly shifted vocals Persian Empire has definitely begun to carve himself a unique niche. With a sound quite reminiscent of James Blake and Mount Kimbie we are sure this young producer will see some success in the future. -The Dankles
There were inexpressibly sullen soundscapes inside of the effort, and within them, a promise of even more enticing counterparts to come from the forthcoming body of work. -HillyDilly

AC1325 Persian Empire - Happy Ending ft. Echo
Release Date : 12/25/13


Press
Happy Ending is the title of the culminating track the two collaborated on, and the unorthodox energy within, aided greatly by desolate-sounding samples and poignant percussion, tells the tale of what past, present, and future successes the aforemention label (and affiliated artists) have to dwell proudly upon." -Hillydilly

Grab the Principal Dean Bundle via Gumroad

Bio
Principal Dean is an analog-obsessed, melodically-rich producer weaned during the peak of the MPC-era and inspired by a unique combination of soul music, found sounds and the urban continuum that led us to Juke and Trap. Unhindered by scene politics or overburdened by fleeting trends, Principal Dean's music rests beyond categorization while staying curiously relevant.

After producing soul-laden Hip Hop beats for years, most notably for Maine rapper Spose, Principal Dean found an inspirational gold mine in both the evolving underground club scene of North America and the experimental downtempo fueled by the internet. The creative freedom this espoused tore down the limiting conventions Principal Dean grew up with and allowed the producer to develop an evolving signature sound that refuses to be static.

Principal Dean - Jack Stars
Release Date : 01/14/2013



Tracklist Click To Listen
01 Jack Stars
02 Clic
03 Storm Wild

About
Entering 2014 with a bang, the Cosmonostro family bring you a slice of spaced out juke madness from across the Atlantic.
Hailing from Burlington, Vermont, Principal Dean fuses lush analogue synthwork with mind bending percussion to create something that works just as well in the clubs as it does in the headphones.
Title track ‘Jack Stars’ opens with throbbing pads and neck breaking tom rolls, slowly building into a juke workout dripping with emotion and soul, before settling down with some cosmic wisdom to open the mind.
The release also features 2 more previously unreleased tracks in a similarly cosmic vein – ‘Clic’ fuses juke sensibilities with jazz samples and soul-drenched arps, whilst ‘Storm Wild’ brings the tempo down a little, taking us into a sparse house territory complete with blissed out guitar chords & seductive vocal samples.
