The 18th release on Cosmic Elements sees the return of New York producer and talented musician Dissident with ‘Consequences EP’.

With parallels to early OM Records and Naked Music’s Carte Blanche series, this superb two tracker begins with the lush female vocal track ‘Late Night Anguish’ which features Dissident’s niece Cordelia Tapping on vocals. Dreamy and ethereal summer vibes all round! on the flip so to speak is the brilliant ‘Disemotioned’ which features Dissident himself on vocals and also has sunshine written all over it. Completing the EP is the dreamy, thought provoking and downright beautiful track ‘Release’, one for a summer’s afternoon without a doubt.

Dissident follows on from his ‘Phrases Of Life’ album, previously on Cosmic Elements, with his music also featuring on the iconic Distant Horizons compilation and on parent label Adaptation Music. With a wealth of experience playing for the likes of Quincy Jones and Miles Davis, this a producer who certainly emphasises quality and consistency.

Cosmic Elements’ 15th release is a big one, a summery balearic lounge/chill EP from Tom Conrad alongside the brilliant Andy Compton (The Rurals) with ‘Textures EP’.

First up is the lush fusion of summery sounds that make up ‘Okinawa’, an ode the beauty of Okinawa prefecture Japan. Andy Compton (The Rurals) is on lead guitar here as he is on the next track ‘Phoenix’, a broken beat, balearic soulful jam with jazzy guitar and a smooth funky bassline. For the closing track, Tom decided to make a track that would fit with observing stars in the night sky and believe it or not, it’s called ‘Stargazer’. Soft arpeggiated rhythms, smooth pads, uplifting keys and ethereal but subtle bell sounds (to represent glowing) are the order of the day, so you tell us – is it a star gazing record?
