#18 Arctween – Get Moving!

I know, I know… you guys are like “wow…two posts within the same week?”. Improvements my friends, improvements. Well, today I bring you a kind of special entry, because music that belongs to friends must be supported as much as our favorite artists. Even more! At the same time I’m far from making any favor, and you’ll see why. So, this track comes from Portugal (I suppose) and it was made by Arctween, or if you prefer, Tito Romão. Tito used to skate with me back in 2004/2005 (inline skating mostly). He was always connected with and to music and if you are Portuguese, you may recognize him from the band Salto.

Anyways… Arctween is, for what I’ve understood, an experimental project. I can’t tell you exactly what to expect, so I recommend you to go and follow his project if you like what you’re about to hear. Overall I’ve found his first Soundcloud featured song really solid, liking specially the bass line and how the whole song slowly grows. It is better for you to get moving and listen to it:

Artist – Arctween
Song – Get Moving!
Genre – Eletronic / Experimental / Moving song? (understand that as you please haha)

#16 Atentado Napalm – Tempos Modernos

I should had done this post before because I listen to this group two months ago…but here we are. So I went to São Paulo… yes, I’m currently living in Brazil, and when walking along the Avenida Paulista I came across this tall dude selling  CDs. He’s from a group called Atentado Napalm, and was selling their 2013 album for just 5 or 10 reais, I can’t remember now. But even it it was 10 reais, it’s just 2.41€, which is nothing…

After buying the album I got a good surprise. As a note, I have to say that I’ve bought it to support these guys even without knowing it they were any good. So I got intrigued by the album’s name. It’s called “Pronto Como Um Macaco Para Ser Lançado Ao Espaço”, which can be translated into “Ready as a monkey to be launched into space”. Hahaha, cool name right? What will be this work about?

Of course I’m not gonna do an album review, hoping you will listen to it =). But I can say that a lot of the tracks included were quite good. My favorite ones were (are) “Queimadura química” (Chemical burn), “O clã das rimas voadoras” (The flying rhymes’ clan), “Siglas” (Acronyms), and my favorite by far – “Tempos Modernos” (Modern times). This last one made me remember of Valete’s track “Nossos tempos”.

Are you ready to be launched into space?

Artists – Atentado Napalm

I think you can download this album for free but I didn’t find a link. To buy a hard copy contact the group via Facebook. For now I let you with my favorite track:

Note: When I tried to convert Reais in Euros I’ve used a conversor online. When typing my search for it I’ve wrote “conversor de moerdas” wrongly… Portuguese speakers will get it hehehe

#13 Naskou – Felony

Well well… today I bring you a piece from Slovakia! I’ve never been there, but I lived in Krakow for a year… pretty close (random fact of the day). So, this track belongs to Naskou and he posted it on my Downtempo Artists Group, and I felt in love with it. It has great texture and a cool variety of sounds. What I’m about to say may sound cliche, but I feel this track tells a story. First, I got influenced by the name of it – Felony. If you don’t know what it means, is basically a heavy crime… so when I started listening to it, I felt like a crime/mystery story was being told to me. Unfortunately, I end up not imagining the ending… was the assassin captured?

Artist – Naskou
Song – Felony
Genre – Crime story?

Now I’d say “follow Naskou on Facebook etc etc”, but he told me he hasn’t one, so follow him on Soundcloud, where “Felony” is set for free download:
