Loframes is a new duo and partnership between London born artist James Yuill and French producer/On The Fruit label boss Franck Russo. Just this week the pair shared their debut single “Get Real,” a lovelorn yet satin sheet smooth ménage of classic Pop songwriting and Deep House.

This release comes with remixes from Roche Musique’s Kartell and up and coming UK producer Aashton. Be sure to grab the full release when it’s out in March!

Back in 2010, worriedaboutsatan (Thomas Ragsdale and Gavin Miller) released a single, toured Europe, then disappeared. Instead the duo started the techno project Ghosting Season in early 2011, and left worriedaboutsatan to hibernate. Four years after the hiatus – the band decided to dust off some old demos in their Manchester studio, and re-emerged last year with the pulsing and hypnotic sounding single “I’m Not/The Next Round”.

“Even Temper” drops March 16th and marks the first full length since their 2009 debut album “Arrivals”, the first single “Baychimo” is a beautiful, slo-mo sounding techno affair.

“SS Baychimo was a steel-hulled 1,322 ton cargo steamer built in 1914 in Sweden and owned by the Hudson’s Bay Company. She became a notable ghost ship along the Alaska coast, being abandoned in 1931 and seen numerous times since then until her last sighting in 1969.”

Singer/songwriter Salt Ashes must have a great group of producers or one producer who has a knack for creating fresh beats because her latest single “Raided” is a well crafted house masterpiece. A ferocious concoction of brooding, dance-infused instrumentation, with an unmistakably pop leaning hook, “Raided” puts Salt Ashes in the company of singers like Kate Bush and Madonna.
