WARHAUS - OPEN WINDOW
Warhaus aka Maarten Devoldere is back with a first taster from his brand new album, due for release later this year. Open Window is a slowly-evolving laid back track that opens up into a beautiful and expansive piece carried by epic string arrangements and flourishing piano. “'Open Window' is about keeping reality at bay in that comfortable bubble of denial. Definitely my favourite stage of heartbreak.” – Maarten Devoldere
BOOGIE BELGIQUE - PEPPER'S GHOST
With Pepper’s Ghost, Boogie Belgique wants to make you smile. The second single from their forthcoming fifth album Machine is the sunny, disco and chill-infused trip-hop excursion reminiscent of childhood coastal road trips and Cafe del Mar sunsets. A steady four on the floor anchors a swirling universe of halcyon choirs and funky guitar, with an emphasis on rhythmic pacing and a deep pocket. The track’s visual depicts the daily commute of workers in the 1950’s, traveling by train and boat, with a white, ghostlike figure emerging in these bustling crowds. The sublime, feel-good single will be released June 22nd on Boogie Belgique Records (Europe) and Le Plan Recordings (North America).

We've got to keep on keeping on!”
