146401_webThis June marks the beginning of a series of albums and EP’s recorded at the studio in the confines of the lauded Parisian Hotel Costes, inaugurating the scheduled releases is ’12 Days A Week’, a new album from the duo behind the project, Masomenos.
‘’After more than fifteen volumes of the Hôtel Costes’ infamous compilation series, selected and mixed by Stephane Pompougnac, there remained a huge demand to deliver new releases. The hotel chose instead to grow its musical presence over streaming platforms, accepting an invitation to become a curator for Apple music, where they release monthly playlists curated by the Studio HC team in collaboration with Watch Your Music.
During this time and a planned expansion of the hotel, a music production studio was introduced, hidden in the maze of the soon to be bigger Costes. STUDIO HC is run by the Masomenos team who have a long history of collaboration with the hotel in various forms and over the past two years have invited and worked with both classical and jazz musicians at, Masomenos merged into different entities to become merely a conductor, unearthing a wide array of different bands, and creating an intriguing yet warm, acoustic and electronic, downtempo/ambient sound for STUDIO HC. As a result the label is due to present seven albums and eight EPS to be released across the next two years from those involved in this endeavor.’’
Here ’12 Days A Week’ sees Masomenos, composed of Joan Costes and Adrien De Maublanc, deliver a modern tribute to the downtempo aesthetic of the revered compilation series, delivering a wide array of ethereal moods, textured atmospherics, organic drum grooves and avant garde jazz influences.
The duo have a long history of collaboration with the Hotel, having headed up a previous series focusing on a more minimal oriented sound with releases from Glacial, Seuil and themselves with their ‘Costes presents Bon Voyage’ project.
Here though ’12 Days A Week’ definitely marks a new era in the Masomenos Sound and the beginning of an exciting few years worth of music to come…

tempelhof 2018Just in time to warm up your winter, Hell Yeah revisit the peerless recent Tsuki album from ambient and Balearic masters Tempelhof & Gigi Masin. Trancendental and dreamy drums characterise the new age ‘Corner Song’, which is the sound of laying back on a boat and bobbing up and down on gentle seas at sunrise. It’s organic and soothing to the max. The other original is ‘Flying Man’, a suspensory film that feels like floating amongst the clouds on a humid afternoon. Wordless vocals add a heavenly feel to the lush and all encompassing chords and pads and nothing sounds sweeter than being lost in this one. It is Corner Song that gets remixed by Good Timin’ and Running Back man Jex Opolis. Famous for his disco infused synth pop sound he is a master of his own musical world. His version is eight minutes of laid-back tropicalia. Slowly churning drums and knotted funk-bass prop it up as an eco-system of pops, clicks and hits add to the steamy and sensuous groove.

On her debut album ‘Firebird’, Larissa White closes the door on the demons of her past with a bang. Her electric lyrics talk about love, hatred, vengeance and self-determination. Electronic beats meet emotional ballads and powerful pop songs. Every song incorporates different elements of style, borrowing from popular genres such as trap, drum’n’bass, trip hop, electro and indietronic. Larissa White is a strong but broken woman confidently trying to clear up her past. Her electric lyrics constantly hover between self-determination and the influence of others, between love and hate, strength and weakness. She wants to take revenge on the demons of her past, yet draws all her energy from those very demons. Failed love affairs and wrong decisions have made her who she is today. The one to catch the beautiful queen – the firebird – will both be blessed and damned.

Larissa is radio host at 1LIVE (WDR) and official show sidekick of Jan Böhmermann (ZDF Neo), producer Niels Reinhard is part of Laserkraft 3D and other projects.
