Advanced Suite [artist review]
Advanced Suite is the brainchild of Patrick Palone from Colorado who has been producing music for over 15 years. Using genres like House, Dub, Electronic, Psychedelic, Bass, Rock, and more, he creates music that paints vivid images.
His music could be viewed as a moving painting. The overall emotion and choice of sounds create a hypnotic environment paired with danceable rhythms, turning any setting into a groovable chill zone. His bouncing interchanging crystal arps, FX and warping melodic basses will take you on a journey into the unknown.

Planet Boelex [artist review]
Planet Boelex is an electronic music project originating from Finland, formed in 2004. Consisting of just one member, Ossi, a self-taught computer musician, who learned to craft his own music in the mid-90’s. T
he first release, “Sinking in the Soup” EP was released in 2005 on the Monotonik netlabel, under the Creative Commons license. This debut release shaped the sound of Planet Boelex, which could be described as soft, melodic electronica, fused with slight influence from genres like ambient and IDM.
Ever since, Planet Boelex has released more than seven hours worth of freely downloadable music, on netlabels like Kahvi Collective and Soft Phase, including various compilation appearances and a collaboration EP with Lisa’s antenna. Planet Boelex has performed live gigs in nine European countries, mostly in electronic music related festivals.

Oscuro [artist review]
Almost nothing is known about Oscuro, a burgeoning producer with post-rock and electronica tendencies, but we do know that he’s incredibly talented. If you’re a fan of Caribou or similar post-dance IDM (eurgh, for lack of a better phrase), then Oscuro will be right up your street. His production’s organic, stuffed with natural samples – like panpipes – and tribal beats.
It’s almost like traditional folk music of South America reworked into a hedonistic paean to movement. Chopped vox bleed into pitched percussion, and chiming synths blur into the wonderfully imperfect chaos, and rather than quantised, autotuned and plasticised – regardless of whether it is or not – it seems like its just dripping from the fingers of Oscuro. It feels very real, very of the moment, and as if he’s letting the noise slip from his body.
