Kristers Stabulnieks, a young 15-year-old from Latvia, makes music under “Drip Koord” moniker and he is set to release his debut - a five track EP named “Soft Silk”.
“Drip Koord” may be only in his teens, yet he has already crafted a distinct style, his tracks feel natural, uncomplicated and effortless, his upbeat synth melodies interplay with dense pads and heavy sub bass to form sparse arrangements — sparse but complete.
“Drip Koord” compares his music producing with painting – if the sounds were acrilyc paint and the track – canvas, then he would use his sounds as brush strokes to form an adventitious picture. This element of randomness is best seen on track “Rash and Pushy”, while other tracks, like “Complications” are more experimental on the arrangement side of things.
Shortly describing himself, “Drip Koord” says: “I like to draw caricatures, produce music. I have a keen interest in Japan culture and I love to spend my days with my fancy lady.“
northern c ir jauns elektroniskās mūzikas projekts no Rīgas, kura pamatsastāvu veido divi domubiedri – Matīss Runtulis, plašāk zināms kā Mr. Myster, kura solo mini-albumu "Kolektiv Sub-konchez" izdevām 2014. gada Jūnijā un Miķeļis Putniņš, grupas Ezeri līderis. Grupai ir raksturīgs elektroniskās mūzikas skanējums, kurš tiek papildināts ar vokāliem, ģitāras un citiem dzīvo instrumentu skaņu elementiem, kopā veidojot neparastu skaņu sakausējumu.
Grupas northern c pašnosaukto debijas albumu caurvij tēmas par neaprastiem apziņas stāvokļiem, neparastiem rītiem, naksnīgiem ceļojumiem, nāvi caur nesaprašanu un nepieņemšanu, kā arī atdzimšanu.

Mix - Matīss Runtulis

Bandmster "Us" (Rīgas kungi OST)
For the Minciisha Ieraksti "3 000 000" remixes we recruited four Latvian producers with different backgrounds and styles.
First up is a dark, seven minute long house expedition from Riga’s veteran Beat maker/producer/DJ Elvi (a.k.a. by his DJ name Elvi Soulsystems).
After the long journey follows a more compact piece by a local beat maker with probably the most easily recognizable sound - Oriole.
Up next is the young gun DJ W3C. He flips the original into zero compromise heavy cyber-metal apocalypse and destroys everything you love.
Seal Pup take on the "3 000 000" is a beautiful Ballroom and Grime influenced track equally suited for dancefloor use and blasting loud in your car or wherever your best speakers are.
The last track is the original (the very first, previously unreleased) version of "3 000 000".

According to Kashuks himself, "Hand Written Story" is a continuation, another treating of everyday sounds, the seemingly mundane background noise, as it was in "Piece of a Chance, Pt.3". While in this EP he managed to do it without any other samples or VST instruments. From my favorite - a girl's flirty giggle up to random street clutter.
Kashuks proves his fine earring and allows our souls to move to the sway of his brushstrokes.

As the result, they build this LP to showcase their latest experiments in the field of Juke, Ghetto Tech and Techno with a wide range of other electronic music influence.

More about the musicians:
In short, Mr Myster's album is fresh and eclectic - ranging from R'n'B to Techno and blasts through absolutely everything in between, grabbing every groove along the way. Mr.Myster's an inspired musical chef - he screws with music, chops it up, seemingly slows it down and pours it over with the most delicious faster beats just when needed. The tracks are experimental in a way that makes it impossible to guess what's coming next. The solutions - whether it's a harder beat, a great vocal or simply a full stop - are unexpectedly fitting every time.
