The Berlin-based duo NAOMI is back with its sixth album Swim. The creative pause has generated space for fresh ideas and the record sounds calmer, more reduced and more optimistic while maintaining a melancholy note. Electro, alternative pop – Nico Tobias and Bernd Lechler don’t care much for genre definitions. Their focus is on great melodies, from the casual and mysterious opener Almost Talking via the almost sacral Melt The Key, the vocoder road movie Life Or Death or the nicely cheerful Get Up, Get Out Into The Rain to the final synthesizer riffs of the title track. You can excellently let yourself sink into these eleven songs, or, as required, laugh, cry, dance and spill beer, or just waste the day.
The Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote about Naomi’s last album The Big Shapes (2010) that the band, “in a fair world, would have to scramble with Lady Gaga for the top positions in the summer charts”; and also Rolling Stone and FAZ are already convinced. With its elegant and mature sound, Swim is a true enrichment for Germany’s pop landscape.
Over the years All Day I Dream has developed a range of music that reflects and captures the spirit of the brand and the sounds of our outdoor day parties. This sampler is a collection of these moments presented as our soundtrack to the summer and features some very exciting artists we are proud to have representing us.

Continuing the run of stellar collaborators, the next release from Danza Macabra sees acclaimed UK electronic artist Mathew Herbert remix original track ‘In For It’. Featuring the vocals of Diyala, winner of best female vocalist in her native Croatia, Diyala’s vocals are ‘found coaxing and stretching like a leather-clad temptress, realising the best traditions of breathy pop vamps and dance dominatrices.’ Danza Macabra return in April after the release of ‘Standstill’, an EP which featured a remix from Panorama bar regular Oskar Offerman and vocals from Richard Davis. Davis returns on ‘In For It Recomposed’ this time to lend his hand to production. Danza Macabra describe this EP as embodying the ethos of the label. Diyala’s vocals are sultry and languorous ‘tailored perfectly for moving under a fool moon’ and both remixers bring something very different to the table. With this next release under their belt and Danza Macabra going from strength to strength and 2015 sees them poised to see even more success.
Portuguese pioneers Moonspell first brought the dark flames to their native country – and then set the rest of the world aflame with milestones such as Irreligious or Night Eternal. Indeed eleventh studio album Extinct erects another monument to sundowns and those dark hours and lets Fernando Ribeiro`s sombre vocals collide with modern riffing, blackened melodies and operatic grandeur. Always one step ahead of the rest, always resisting all genre boundaries!
This will set the world aflame! Another monument by Portuguese Dark Metal pioneers! 11th Studio Album from the Portuguese Dark Metal Masters.
