New Post has been published on http://styleofsound.com/estroe-and-nadia-struiwigh/Estroe and Nadia Struiwigh’s Rainy May Day MixJust in case you need it, we thought we would present this mix by Estroe and Nadia Struiwigh for a rainy day coming this May.
Tracklist:
Insect O – Bondi Dub – Etui
Juho Kahilanen – Soitimella (Dave Miller remix)
D-Ribeiro – Silent Thoughts of a black man
Mega Mode – CC
Dave DK – Byway
Shee – Seaflight (Navar Dub)
Rising Tones – Randoom
Nadia Struiwigh – Bit bites (PHM remix)
Marcel Dettmann – Ellipse
John Flemming – Pixelated
(A)pendics + Shuffle – The other side (Simon Garcia remix)
Piemont – Vitesse
Taras v/d Voorde – Hong Kong – EC Records
About Estroe
Born Esther Roozendaal in Holland circa 1972, a little over two and a half decades on she began taking the first steps towards a career in and around clubs, inspired by technique and technicalities, rather than glitz or glamour. As a nursing undergraduate in Amsterdam, her days spent learning contrasted a hectic five-night-a-week party diary, giving an early indication of the nocturnal profession that would follow.
Regular trips to venues such as The Roxy and The It, listening to the likes of DJ Dimitri and Marcello, led to a friendship with a ‘flirtatious light-jockey’, and evenings spent watching him create atmosphere and mood with colour and visual patterns. Soon she was complaining about sluggish mixes, feeling frustrated when there was a lack of passion behind the decks, and beginning to understand how the tone could be set with melodies, drums, and basslines, rather than strobes.
Putting needle to record pre-millennium, Dance Valley, Awakenings, Tresor, and FFWD soon beckoned. As too did a residency at infamous Dutch club Mazzo in 2002, where honours were shared with close friend Steve Rachmad, as Adam Beyer, Joel Mull and more headlined. Meanwhile, she was also involved in new talent night Set Off, and the experimental soiree Explicit Sounds alongside Steffi Klakson, betraying a desire to promote other artists still evident today, what with her role as judge in the Vinylized production contest, workshops at the Red Bull Music Academy, and the agency, www.estroe-advice.com, which provides training in everything from management to creating tunes.
About Nadia Struiwigh
Nadia Struiwigh was raised in Eindhoven and is now based in Rotterdam. In 2009 the Dutch Nadia started to focus more on the dance scene, folksy electronic bands and artists like Enya, The Verve, some early stuff of Coldplay, Boards of Canada, Kraftwerk, Monolake, and Extrawelt inspired her to start DJing and producing at the same time. ‘The output of my emotions, and telling stories with my sets filled with tracks of others works as an inspiration for my own productions’.
For someone who is just in her early 20′s she has a very mature and original style of both deejaying and producing. The sets are variable between energetic melodic techno, with different kind of energy levels. Her appearances on radio stations like XT3 techno radio, Radio 538, Deep FM, and KLIKKmusic, her sets on a variety of parties in and outside Holland (Italy, Berlin, Brussel) and remixes she did for Snejl, Wide Angle Recordings, Rezongar, Inlab Recordings and Manual Music recently are proof examples of the recognition of her unique style.

New Post has been published on http://styleofsound.com/house-of-peroni-2014/Experience the House of Peroni 2014 LondonThe House of Peroni is re-opening at a new venue in Holborn this May. Open for almost every day in May, it features 4 floors of stunning artworks by talent such as Carnovsky, and features three indoor bars, a fully functioning restaurant, and an outdoor terrace with a bar.
While admission to The House of Peroni 2014 is free, there is also an exciting daily schedule of events (some ticketed, some free) of which we highlight the best events here.
Dining in Multicolour
Inspired by the explosion in colour photography of 1963 – the year Polaroid began manufacturing colour film – this unique dining experience is a sensory extravaganza of stimulating flavour and colour. The entire room, right down to the cutlery, will be a dizzying rainbow of multicolour and will form the backdrop to an equally colourful feast prepared by The House of Peroni’s resident chefs Bottega Wapping, whose inspiration for the menu derives from the Red Green Blue model of colour used in photography and electronic systems.
Modern Vintage
Create Your Own Silk Scarf: Inspired by the timeless chic of Sophia Loren, this design masterclass looks back at the history of the Italian printed silk scarf, the designers that popularised it, and the women that made them iconic culminating in guests creating their own 100% silk crepe de chine scarf with a bespoke design.
Become an Italian Barista
The House of Peroni, in association with Lavazza, will deliver this authentic Italian coffee experience where guests will learn the origins of coffee and enjoy a tasting session with different beans and blends covering all the classics from velvety cappuccinos to intense espressos.
Reservations for the restaurant and tickets for the events are bookable directly via The House of Peroni 2014 website www.thehouseofperoni.com

In a series called Prices by French artist BL67, price tags are stuck on to canvas to create aesthetically pleasing artworks using this everyday common item. The title of each piece, for example 15,400 Euros, is not only the sum of all the price tag labels stuck on the canvas, but it is also the sale price of the work, combining form and function together as all good art should do.
We don’t know much about BL67, but what we do know is that Prices is a shift away from the artist’s work which has previously revolved around collections of paint spots, drips, mixed colors, acrylic paintings and Babybel heads. Who says you can’t put a price on art.

New Post has been published on http://styleofsound.com/token-lounge-chair/Token Lounge ChairWhen we first set eyes upon the Token Lounge Chair, we immediately wanted one. The Token Lounge chair evokes the late 1950′s/early 60′s Gotham high style, and is bold without feeling overwrought. Sophisticated yet whimsical, both contemporary and historically reverent, The Token Lounge Chair is a study in contrasts. The cantilevered structure provides visual interest and mystery, and its overall form and function aim at uniting style with comfort.
Who is Token?


Token is a Brooklyn-based design and manufacturing studio that develops contemporary handcrafted furniture and lighting objects embodying the evolving intentions of American modernism. Observation and a careful consideration of function, structural ingenuity, material dynamics and aesthetic coherence are instilled in each of Token’s signature pieces. The result is a collection aimed at providing elements for purposeful, considered living.

Will Kavesh and Emrys Berkower met as undergraduates at Alfred University in 1992. After graduating in 1996 and going on to individually pursue art making and design careers, Emrys and Will reconnected in 2005 and began collaborating on various projects, specifically lighting and furniture design. This led to the formation of the design/build studio TOKEN in 2007 which also serves as a platform for supporting and participating in the rich community of locally based designers and fabricators.

New Post has been published on http://styleofsound.com/monogem-wait-see/Monogem | Wait & SeeJust came across Wait & See by Los Angeles-based act Monogem and rather liked the sound of it. The track is described as “glittering melodies and bursts of electronica, all blissfully combined with just a potent hint of throwback disco,” but take a listen for yourself and you can be the judge.
Fronted by singer/songwriter Jen Hirsh, the project is a collaboration with producer/songwriter, Scott Smith. The Monogem live show is accompanied by Peter Dyer on keys, Chris Faller on bass/synth bass, Adam Tressler on guitar and Nate Lotz on the drums. The group takes us on an intoxicatingly refined journey through delicate vocals, dizzying harmonies and dance ready synths.
Monogem’s first online release, The Glow, debuted on Paper Magazine, who aptly noted that the project, “makes disco and funk-tinged synth pop that will make you want to groove, gurl.” And rightly so – the video for the track is a perfect montage of 1984 cult movie, Breakin’, an obvious nod to Monogem’s vintage roots.“It’s about letting go and transporting yourself into another realm,” Hirsh muses of the forthcoming release. “Everybody can relate, or at least I hope so, to that feeling you get on the dancefloor.” Monogem arrives with incredible force, from another world where pop music still has sentiment and soul. And just a bit of funk.

Of course, Trehy’s sensual voice highlights the affair, making the debut Strata Florida album a pleasure to listen to.
With 90s shoegaze greats such as Slowdive making a reappearance onto the scene to influence a new generation of music listeners, Trehy’s timing is just right. Freed from the pressures and expectations of indifferent record labels and a fickle, cynical press, Strata Florida is definitely one of 2014′s more satisfying musical comebacks.

New Post has been published on http://styleofsound.com/orlando-and-tom-furse/Orlando and Tom FurseWe rarely come across bands that release albums these days on cassette tape but that’s exactly what Orlando and Tom Furse of the Horrors did with their debut release Earth Moon Earth & Other Round Trips. On Side A of the cassette tape, 4-songs tell the story of Orlando escaping from Earth to find freedom in isolation and a lack of perspective, and spending some time before a chance encounter with an insolent robot makes her homesick. So back home she goes. On Side B (Tom’s side), the two tracks are reminiscent of a meditation tape that is both round and trippy.
All cassette tapes containing Earth Moon Earth & Other Round Trips are previously used, and come re-aligned and re-housed complete with sonic artefacts and physical imperfections that come with the recycling process. Copies are numbered and currently limited to 25.
Although at the time of writing it looks like cassette tape release from Orlando and Tom Furse is sold out, you can still purchase a digital by visiting their Bandcamp page while they last.

Orlando and Tom Furse

We rarely come across bands that release albums these days on cassette tape but that’s exactly what Orlando and Tom Furse of the Horrors did with their debut release Earth Moon Earth & Other Round Trips. On Side A of the cassette tape, 4-songs tell the story of Orlando escaping from Earth to find freedom in isolation and a lack of perspective, and spending some time before a chance encounter with an insolent robot makes her homesick. So back home she goes. On Side B (Tom’s side), the two tracks are reminiscent of a meditation tape that is both round and trippy.
