I realised the importance of art and music through these times , the highs and lows of Covid times I hope these artists help you through it too.
First up in the new show are Stash Magnetic . We’ve gone for a distinctly electronica vibe here
Stash Magnetic make analog driven, hybrid electronica and now land on Al Mackenzie’s Field Of Dreams Recordings.
After being summoned from Ohio to London by Adrian Sherwood, Nick Riggio and Rebecca Magnetic have brought their Midwest musical experience to the South London electronic music scene with a unique creative vision. Fusing elements of techno, post-punk and psychedelic rock they explore spiritual connections and transcendence while Rebecca Magnetic’s introspective vocals set against a tough backdrop of Detroit influenced rhythms and vibrations leave you in awe.
Their superb single ‘My Future’ is a brilliantly cosmic exploration of spaced out and spacious grooves. Crashing hits bring an edgy mood, while lurching drums drag you forwards. Molten acid synths and the strained and pained vocals from Rachel add further layers of intrigue to this most adventurous electronic trip.
“Most of my writing starts collage style. I write as it comes to me, then tuck it away in a book, journal, box. Sometimes it comes to me like channeling and I pluck it out of a transmission stream from a different time and space. There are times I write pieces, put them away for some time then pull them out later, not remembering I wrote the piece. It’s like I write to communicate with myself in the future. I always pull out what I need just when I need it most. When I’m moved by a rhythm and sparked by a melody, the collage pieces come out and I orchestrate into a pattern. “ Beccy Stash
We have selected here My Future (Magnetic Mix).
