Brooklyn Bass 048: Pedro Vian June 2014 Podcast

What’s a typical weekend like for the scene in Barcelona?  In Barcelona the offering has always been rather unstable, however it seems that now it’s steadily growing. At least that’s my feeling. In fact, it’s now impossible to attend every event, which means there are more than enough to choose from. Certainly brand new values are being...

Brooklyn Bass 046: Aimes May 2014 Podcast

AIMES is the production moniker and musical alter ego of Alabama born, Brooklyn resident, Aman Ellis. His music is psychedelic at heart, provoking hints of new-wave, italo, and cosmic disco.

Gloaming Thirst is perfect horror film scoring, complete with maniacal synth spin-outs and intense drums, and releases like Pour Resnaís show a more introspective but equally exploratory side, leaving the kits aside in favor of synth-laden soundscapes. And with II, Donna again refocuses...
