OUT: 'Dawn Is Mine' by Vilette

Villete aka Amsterdam based producer Anne Korteweg returns to Scissor and Thread with a brilliant new EP. Her debut 12" 'Girl Next Door' was released on Scissor and Thread in the fall of 2016 and sold out quickly. Now here with the new EP 'Dawn is Mine', we are treated to seven tracks of understated, floating beauty. On her new release she explores the more abstract sides of electronic music. Using a variety of synthesizers, she creates rich and lush sounding structures that continuously bend and flow loosely.

OUT NOW: Thilo Schölpen - Across the Universe

'Across The Universe' is the third piano-solo album by Thilo Schölpen. Like the previous albums "kraftwerk-klavier" and "Piano Diary", this one also feeds on his affinity for the beatnik culture and for new wave, electronic and avant-garde music, with references to the world of pop.

With a light touch and yet hypnotic depth, his music takes you on a captivating journey where reggae meets wistful melodies and a slightly African rhythm reminiscent of Damon Albarn. Across the Universe is piano music that focuses not on the instrument, but on the composition.

Thilo Schölpen studied jazz piano at the Amsterdam Art School. As a pianist he is known for his solo concerts; as an experimental musician he performs in ensembles and as a soloist.
'Across The Universe' entered German Jazz Charts, highly acclaimed in german jazz press, they even call it an 'album of perfected architecture' (Jazzthetik).

OUT: Atom™ & Tobias: 'Enne'.

Atom™ & Tobias bookend their Pomelo trilogy in style with 'Enne', final instalment of their three-part series that started with 'Cuando' and 'Zahlenraum' last year. The EPs three tracks span the breadth and depth of Atom™ & Tobias's hardware techno sessions. From the slow-burning and punishingly addictive title track, to the jacking, rattling TR-909 grooves of 'NHMS', and the sprawling widescreen dubs of 'Aux II', 'Enne' simultaneously celebrates the delicacy, immediacy, and unmitigated power of twirling synth lines, grumbling bass spirals, and pounding techno rhythms.

Out since October 22nd via Vienna-based Pomelo.

OUT: Reece Lemonius releases first EP 'Midnight'

Lost and found between dusk and dawn… Reece Lemonius´ 'Midnight' EP is a look into the past with a nostalgic yet vibrant modern twist. He incorporates elements of alternative R&B, Funk, Soul and Melancholic Pop of days gone by.

Fading into the soundtrack of his own self-reflection, tech-noire phantasies and heartbreak scenarios… for a time that never was…

Like a summer night ride after watching 'The lost boys' at the Drive-in. Fueled with 80s synth spheres and classic guitars coming through the car speakers. Reece Lemonius hits the gas pedal with you in the passenger seat, singing you his poems with the volume of the radio cranked up while a robot with a sweet vocoder voice is whispering from the back seat.

Navigated by his soulful voice and guided by timeless and illusionary melodies you can let loose and enjoy the ride through this six and a half track creation… close your eyes, so you don't miss a single heartbeat of this very moment…

'Midnight' - a never-ending new beginning... out since June the 5th.

Listen to it on Spotify.
