Research of sounds

SPACE ABOVE BIO
Space Above is the side project of Aaron Short, the New Zealand artist best known as producer and keyboardist for The Naked and Famous. Alongside fellow kiwis, Sam McCarthy (BOYBOY) and Maddie North (So Below), Space Above strays from pop structures in an exploration of darker, journey-focused, electronic music. Blending atmospheric melodies with intoxicating, electronic twists, Space Above creates an other-worldly soundscape.

"This record was written during the down time between The Naked And Famous' second and third albums, after teaming up with my very close friend, roommate and meditation mentor, Sam McCarthy. We both shared such a strong love for the deeper electronic cuts of the world. Sam and Maddie’s lyrical concepts so perfectly matched the feelings of the record's instrumentation.

There were no rules behind the creation of the record, it came from a very innocent place. Song parts were raw and unpolished, with aggressive sounds crashing into incredibly soft, vulnerable moments… it felt great.

All the songs seemed to return to the calm hidden within the storm. The temporary nature of life, giving in to things that aren’t in your control, the reminder that when you think you have the world figured out, you absolutely don’t."

EDIT SELECT BIO
Tony Scott, who DJs and produces as Edit Select, has been producing electronic music since the early nineties under various pseudonyms, but with Edit Select he has found his forte.
His No Nonsense approach to production and editing has gained him a reputation of being a perfectionist. He’s got a very healthy back catalogue that includes the classic Bauer, The Sliotar, Surface To Air and forthcoming his Debut LP Phlox on Prologue in 2014 .

With remixes of VCMG, Speedy J, Dadub, Chris Liebing, Mark Broom under his belt and collabs with friends such as Dino Sabatini, Markus Suckut, Giorgio Gigli, which was released in 2014, this promises to be a pivotal time in his musical career.
As a DJ, he admits to being very inspired by Andrew Weatherall and Dimitri from Amsterdam back in the beginning of the whole techno E club environment: “For me, you have to make a connection with the people when you play. A good friend described a moment in Berghain when I was playing that it felt like being home”.
