New Zealand R&B talent NOAH SLEE follows up debut album “Otherland”
Focusing on many life-changing moments, the album put Slee on the world stage while remaining painfully authentic, as Noah comes out as gay, explores the Berlin nightlife, ponders on religion, pays homage to his Tongan roots, and grapples with his artistry across the incredible 17-track body of work.
MACHINE MAN RECORDS is pleased to announce the 18-track remix album from CHMCL STR8JCKT, appropriately titled “RMX”. Available on CD and Name Your Own Price digital download via MACHINE MAN RECORDS’ Bandcamp site.
This is a collection of killer remixes from around the globe of our debut 8 track release. It features work by many talented artists including Claus Larsen (LeaetherStrip) and Erik Gustafson (16 Volt, Adoration Destroyed).

Irish artist LUGH reveals ‘Million Dollar Cowboy’
Today, LUGH reveals track ‘Million Dollar Cowboy’ from debut EP ‘Hélico’ to be released via label and platform C.A.N.V.A.S. on summer solstice, 21st June 2018.
The Berlin-based Irish-born artist and sound designer makes use of digitally disembodied vocal sounds and textures as a compositional tool for creating new environments on Hélico, in attempt to draw his listener into an affected and emotive state. However, LUGH strives to leave the listener short of creating a true connection to the source of the sound. The outcome is a very real and tangible experience that is somehow lost in an uncanny virtual space.

DIANA GORDON ANNOUNCES DEBUT EP & SHARES “KOOL AID” OFFICIAL VIDEO
Diana Gordon, the Grammy-nominated singer / songwriter / producer has announced the release of her debut EP, PURE, along with the official video for her first single, “Kool Aid”. Described as a “loners’ anthem”, “Kool Aid” lyrically and visually reflects on Gordon’s relationship with a younger brother she raised and an older brother that went missing sixteen years ago. The video for “Kool Aid”, which was conceptualized, co-directed and designed by Gordon herself, is filled with a familiar kind of nostalgic innocence – blissful and heartwarming scenes of a young boy and girl playing, unaware of the raw industrial world around them. Inside of this world, there are also animals, a couch skillfully made of real live moss and an outlandishly large bag of sugar for the song’s kid-familiar favorite Kool-Aid, because everyone knows you can’t just use a little.
Life’s a Dream goes from a psychedelic, laid-back intro into dense, lyrically driven bars over a droning Moog Sub 37 bass line and pounding 808-like drums.
Turning our addiction to technology into a punchline, Kahn raps, “Life as we know it all digital, little kerosene burn the whole thing down. That’s how I feel sometimes when you’re looking at your phone like if you could that motherfucker down it’d be a miracle.”
