Ganz Feld is Travis Leeper from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His newest full-length Enemy is a heavy computer music LP. Dancefloor lust, evil synths, 2D coffin offices and claustrophobic bass splatter a shifting post-internet sonic landscape. All music written, recorded and produced by Ganz Feld.

It is said… long ago, ancient rulers made heavy use of sellswords, professional sword-slinging mercenaries with extraordinary prowess and skill. These near-mythic warriors sold their talents to the highest bidder, looting villages and emptying the coffers of kings.

Prime8 Pimpin’s new album Sellswords & Courtesans is a beat tape steeped in old school tradition, an hour-long collection of instrumental beats and breaks.

Prime8 Pimpin: “This all started when I came into possession of a binder full of Asian cinema. Most of the films I picked were Ronin or Samurai films but there were also a few Kung-Fu movies. I always want my projects to be action-packed so having a foundation of sword swinging and ass kicking didn’t hurt at all [...] As far as the name of the tape is concerned, there are two types of people that you will almost always see in a samurai film: Sellswords—mostly Ronin, and Courtesans—high-class escorts.”

Prime8 has fast become a staple of the Baton Rouge beat scene. You can catch him performing as part of the Dolo Jazz Suite lineup along with fellow producer AF THE NAYSAYER.

IN SNOW is a four-piece instrumental band from Birmingham comprised of Christopher Suda, Michael Pocus, Brooke McCarley and Samuel Porter. For an in-depth account of the In Snow story, read Anthony Vacca’s recent exposé for WELD magazine.

The album was recorded and mastered at Feedback Audio in Birmingham, the band having won the studio time at a raffle for DIY Birmingham‘s second anniversary party. It’s a powerful, sweeping, and sometimes heart-breaking record. The ensemble consists of guitar, drum, bass, violin, effect pedals and even sampling.

Guitarist Chris Suda (who also produces experimental music under the name Loveislight) applies his signature sampling sensibilities here, infusing the traditional rock model with thoughtful and contemplative atmosphere.
