From St. Petersburg, Russia, Georgy Kotunov (AKA Long Arm) cites influences such as Bonobo, Amon Tobin, and Dimlite (all previous #SOTDs). Georgy’s latest album ‘Silent Opera’ is “an attempt to describe the states of the human soul. The state of rising and fall, of despair and hope, of humility and expectation of a miracle. The search for peace inside against the background of flowering life around and elusive time”. Out on the Berlin-based label Project Mooncircle, with album artwork by William Barras.
USA born (Hampton, Virginia), now Berlin-based producer Adam Longman Parker released his first full-length LP ‘Colored’ last year under the artist name Afriqua. The album “is a celebration of the unifying power of Black culture through the prism of electronic music”. Released on R & S Records.
Nicolas De Araújo Peixoto is a Berlin DJ and producer Takeleave. Nicolas describes his second full length album ‘Belonging’ as “an allegory of arrival and homesickness, after his first album Inner Sea focused on the journey itself”. Out now on Berlin based label and creative collective Project Mooncircle.
Keen ornithologist, Montabaur based Dominik Eulberg released his fifth studio album ‘Mannigfaltig’ back in September 2019. The single Goldene Acht has been a previous #SOTD but the whole album is so good! Out on !K7 Records.
From Tokyo, Kota Motomura is a slightly mysterious character.
