Live footage of Caleb Performing in Namibia
In December 2014, Caleb was invited as a faculty member of the Musikwoche festival in Swakopmund, Namibia. The festival is filled with concerts by Namibian amateur and professionals as well as appearances by musicians from Germany, South Africa, and the USA. Caleb recently uploaded a video of his festival performance of Franz Liszt's "Liebestraum" with South African pianist Vera Malherbe onto YouTube. Hopefully there will be more videos in the near future.

Honey Barbara: Wave Grass
The album "Wave Grass" finds the band Honey Barbara exploring a mix of pure instrumentals with a sprinkling of tracks that feature vocals. The surprisingly close, tactile-and, then again dynamic-nature of the acoustic and electric instrumentation resonates well with wholesome sounds and deja-vu-like reverberations that reveal here a country, or there a psychedelic accent all woven in together. Core members James Sidlo (guitars, etc.), Ross Marlow (vocals, keyboards), and Terry Orff (bass) are joined by Dan Tellez (formerly of Aqua Pedestrian) on guitar and Robert Potter (formerly of Pulsating Love Flower) on drums. Additional musicians, as well, join the band on various tracks to further extend the album's sound. Available now in CD, DL and (soon) the LP version in heavy black &white splatter on clear orange vinyl. Pretty keen!

Above & Beyond Acoustic
Live from Porchester Hall
After months of anticipation, Above & Beyond will today premiere the full concert film from their critically-acclaimed acoustic project. The premiere will take place on Vice's THUMP channel at 4pm EST/1pm PST, and will be immediately followed by a Google Hangout with the band at 5:30pm EST/2:30pm PST. The release of Above & Beyond's acoustic studio album will follow on Tuesday January 28 via Anjunabeats/Ultra Records. The feature-length concert film captures the backstories and performances from Above & Beyond's acoustic shows at London's Porchester Hall last summer, during which Jono, Tony and Paavo performed some of the biggest and best-loved Above & Beyond songs as part of a 15-piece band. Following the London performances, the band recorded an acoustic studio album and went on to sell out two further acoustic gigs at LA's Greek Theater (described by Billboard Magazine as "one of the finest and more memorable shows in EDM history).
About Above & Beyond
Over their three critically acclaimed studio albums, Above & Beyond have continually been celebrated for placing real musicianship and songwriting at the heart of what they do. While their famed club mixes have resonated with the dance generation, the songs behind them have touched fans of all ages across the globe. As influenced as much by Jeff Buckley or Bon Iver as they are by their deep love of electronic music, Above & Beyond's songs and lyrics have been sung back to them at the world's biggest stadiums and stages - from Brixton Academy to LA's Hollywood Palladium, to their famed 1 million people gig at Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.

Aetherica An electronic journey at 432hz in less than 140bpm
This is the story which starts from my deepest inner space, an unresolved space, in constant motion and change, but also contradictory and paradoxal. Since centuries there is still something static and heavy waiting for an appropriate resolution. Going deeper and deeper you acquire a new awareness: the immensity of the universe which surrounds us, his celestial bodies and everything that shines in the dark nights but also his borders getting clearer and defined. Hence the discovery of new worlds contingent and the return to my most authentic and determined reality. The return to the soul and life in a new dimension. I wish to everyone who wants to follow the footsteps of this route a "good journey" in the realm of Aetherica. - Additive
Download available on Juno (WAVs), Beatport, iTunes, AmazonMP3, or directly from SLIM.label store.
The Additive started his producer career with the label Sostanze Records, publishing in 2010 his homonymous LP The Additive which gathers seven tracks made in between 2007 and 2010. He gets delineated a new instrumental set-up which consists of synthesizers, electric guitars, percussive instruments and the inevitable notebook. But also the style who distinguish him is further more marked: the idea of sound-work for a careful and engaged listening by developing narrative and dramaturgy through the musical media.

THE TIME FOR A NEW MUSICAL PATH HAS COME TO GO FORWARD TOGETHER
Germany, end of 2013: dark clouds hanging over the heads of "analog" musicians. A popular music magazine found out that the number of rehearsal rooms and venues for young bands is significantly decreased. Especially the situation for rehearsal rooms is dramatically: too less, too expensive, too dirty and hard to reach. But in cultivated countries there should be room for many different types of culture not only mainstream
Soundlocations will go for a change in Germany and International, the founders will run own locations or locations managed by franchise partners. Under one roof, the musicians will find rehearsal rooms, a live stage, recording studio, distribution partner, gastronomy, experts for business, tour promotion, consultancy and many more.
But not only active musicians will participate and benefit in the Soundlocations project, also fans of the bands and friends of the project are welcome to join the services. Club Events, Live streams, Downloads, interactive community and many more services are planned to support the communication and interaction between the bands and their fanbase.
A comparable project is actually not known, of course there are some successful local activities but no nationwide actions. "Networking" is the demand of the hour! This is also well known to the founders of Soundlocations. The team consists of marketing-, business-, IT-, finance-, consultancy- and of course professionals of the music business. They were all brought together by the passion for music. As you can see: there is a lot to do! Founders, bands and fans: if the all work together, Soundlocations will be a success. A success for the whole community.
Soundlocations is working on www.Indiegogo.com/projects/soundlocations to ensure the financial situation for their all-in-one project. More info: www.soundlocations.com
