Various Artists – Eine Kleine Nachtmusik Vol. 3
Wrapping up another busy year of collaborations, this third installment of Halo Askew’s ‘Eine Kleine Nachtmusik’ series showcases unreleased, upcoming, and standout tracks from Aversion Theory, Ten Cent Toys, Kim Cameron, Resident51, and our own Kris ‘Halo’ Pierce. A little Industrial, some House, a couple deep Ambient dives, and a live collaboration with kids from Guitars Over Guns in Miami, this sampler is a bit more diverse than previous installments.
Kris “Halo” Pierce – Drive With Me (To The Edge of Space)
Kris ‘Halo’ Pierce skillfully blurs reality with this Coldwave-meets-Ambient Breaks track, blending his signature melancholic vocals with haunting, ever-evolving melodies. Drive With Me (To The Edge of Space) is an escapist anthem. Twenty-one years after two high school friends set up a studio in the garage, the symbiotic, outside-the-box, song-crafting between Kris Pierce and Wendi Hughes, remains strong. The etherial, stream-of-consciousness vocalizations by Elaine Benavides twist expertly around the cut time beats and frantic breaks, taking on a life of their own as a living, breathing lullaby. The supporting remixes, produced by Halo as well, are deep dives into House and Drum n Bass territory and are wildly diverse. Whereas the original mix is more living room electronica, Halo’s Insomnia House and Everything Breakz remixes are DJ set friendly.
Aversion Theory – Welcome To Your Life
The new Aversion Theory album is a generous mix of alternative and electronic music, and has a Thrill Kill Kult vibe to it. Dealing with a multitude of subject matter, Welcome To Your Life ebbs and flows from the first song to the last.
Kim Cameron & Side FX – Share My Pillow
Share My Pillow was an inspiration that DJ Halo and Kim Cameron had one day while talking about how a new relationships felt. Both equated that first fall like a dramatic flight into the skies blanketed with those beautiful white pillows. Immediately, they began writing a song that was inspired by Ibiza dance listeners. This super house dance record that pulls you deep to the dance floor.
