The entire piece, generally speaking, encompasses a mood of deep thought, somberness, and dare I even say remorsefulness at times? That's the beauty of a story told by music.
"I started making music during the lockdown period here in the US. I have always loved music and at the time I was hosting my own radio show on the Stationhead app. An internet radio app where anyone could host their own show and play whatever they want. I still have shows there. As a fan of EDM music, I was excited when I learned the legendary festival "Tomorrowland" was going to be virtual that Summer (20202). I got the idea of making my own music having played around with samples before. And so began my love of making electronic music." - Scott Foster
"Never be scared to ask for help, and don't be scared to open up. That's what I want people to take from this EP" - Big in Borneo
"What If You Fly" creates a sonic space that transforms and grows more and more elaborate with each passing moments of the track. Starting in a minimalistic, and yet extremely atmospheric scene, the guitars establish a sweet melodic leitmotiv that repeats throughout the track, which creates a sense of nostalgia, like a lingering memory where we slowly begin to remember more details.
"Fractals is mainly inspired by my mini obsession with repeating patterns. I've got a journal at home where I fill in a few lines for each day of the year over a 5 year period. I'm 4 years into it, and I've found that things such as moods, feelings, and even illnesses seem to occur at around the same time every year. I found this quite fascinating and wanted to represent it in some sort of musical way." Michael Donoghue
"Her Shadow In The Flame" is inspired by the witch hunts and the unjustified violence against human beings. At first, Matyascorvinus decided to make it a horror song, but later became a song of longing and sadness, about those who have disappeared due to unjust events, events that have been going on even today with the war.
Opening a new page, de Antiquis et Novis brings forth his love for the dancy side of electronica and introduces us to the first instalment - the new single titled "Alchemy". Featuring jabbing synths, sweet linear percussion and shimmery arps running in the background, the single builds up the feeling of late-night house parties where the intoxicating flow of music and beverages take everyone deep into the summer night.
"I wanted to spearheading a new sound called Afro-Lofi, combining the vintage and granular atmosphere of Lofi music with infectious afrobeat rhythms to create a pleasurable listening experience." Theo Davis

"This track is about procrastinating at work or home, when you can end up surfing the internet for hours without even noticing. This track tries to capture the psychedelic aspect of 'losing hours and hours' of time to a surplus activity, hence the title, and the trippy guitar riff that comes in. The style of the track acts as a juxtaposition to the mood of the lyrics." - Panthalassa
