House: Cozmic Cat – I Was Wrong (LPascolatti Remix)

Released on 22nd of February, I Was Wrong, by Canadian DJ and producer Cozmic Cat is back as a music video on Capiroto Record’s YouTube page and on 21st of June as a remix by LPascolatti, who was also responsible for mastering I Was Wrong.

The plan was to make it sound fatter, more atmospheric, while enhancing the synthesizers and adding some saturation to the drums. Making it sound more minimalist, as a few elements were removed while some others were highlighted, such as the vocal’s presence, for example.

New Single: Sons of Venus – Thinking It Through

Capiroto Records is proud to announce Thinking It Through, by Sons of Venus, band from New York City in United States. The band was formed when John Sully, performer and sound engineer, met Kazakh drummer and pianist Ruslan Baimurzin, who invited him for a jam with bassist Igor Reznik and keyboardist Peter Breed. Thinking It Through comes as their debut single before their upcoming seven tracks album. Their album is a result from extensive improvisations, who were later transformed by Sully into demo tracks, on which he overdubbed the vocals. Excited by the outcome, the band decided to record a seven tracks album at Bunker Studios in Brooklyn. The album was recorded in one day and mixed by Sully in his home studio. According to them: “There is an innate 1960’s feeling to the album. Free jazz flourishes and acid rock edges intertwine with an indie pop ethos. Taking their cues from punk, funk and the blues, the band appreciates as it innovates.”

Official release 28th of June.

“Uplifting and brightened breaks in between. But still giving raw texture, heavy riffs and solid drums to back up the very Metal Core infused vocals layered on top. Giving us, or what we called, our “Doom-Core” Genre’d content. Dedicated to our passion of metal we have added another guitarist, Mathew, and a bassist Eric, who both play significant roles in Wither Without You. Giving us a very widespread concept of our metal background and abilities as a whole. Leading to our current/future content for everyone to take a piece with them to hold onto and enjoy.”

Ambient: Hellman – Rætur

Rætur is a piano ambient electronic single by Hellman, Hermann Jónson, Icelandic composer and producer from Reykjavik. Rætur in Icelandic means roots, while each of the three tracks represent Icelandic weeds: 1) Lúpína, a joyful, cheerful piano ambient track, growing with synthesizers and electric guitar sounds; proceeded by 2) Hvönn, which is also marked by piano keys, but with a minor, sadder tune; and lastly 3) Holurt, a track with a bigger presence of synthesized layers, drums and a cinematic feeling. Rætur is meditative single, with piano tunes and melodies, that would not be the same without its electronic layers that gives them a contemporary and delicate element that glues together each singularity of its composition.

New Release: LPascolatti – Assurbanipal (EP)

Today Capiroto Records is annoucing Assurbanipal, new EP by LPascolatti. With official release 14th of June.

Assurbanipal, or Asshurbanipal, was one of the greatest emperors of the neo-Assyrian empire; who ruled the Iron age world from his palace in Nineveh, modern days Iraq, where he cultivated an ancient library in cuneiform language. His palace was deeply explored by British archaeologists in the 19th century, such as Sir Austen Henry Layard. In 2014 the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) occupied the palace of Nineveh, during that time they bulldozed several of the monuments who survived the centuries. The palace was later re-occupied by Iraq forces in January 2017.

LPascolatti’s idea when composing Assurbanipal was that it should be vast and long as the neo-Assyrian empire, with all its greatness, gathering several different cultures and types of inspiration from an age. The production and its whole arrangement resulted from distinct recording sessions of synthesizers, exploring different harmonic scales, digital and analogue effects on a time that a lot of his inspiration resulted from reading about Bronze Age’s decadence and the emergence of a new era in the ancient Eastern world.

This extended play has been recorded before the one-track live album (in 7 acts) ‘Nada como um dia após o outro dia’, which also explored Bronze Age’s decadence trying to bring into comparison current times’ downfall. What would be our modern days bronze? The oil? Information and data? The global commerce hegemony? Political hegemony? To having one’s religion and ideology prevail?

With Assurbanipal, LPascolatti’s goal is to bring ancient history into contemporary electronic music and using it to establish a parallel with the present time. Finding a way to sing the imaginary past by contemporary mechanisms of music production while shaping the music of the future.
