Novele – Furthest

Novele is the brainchild of 26-year-old singer/songwriter/producer Austin Fitzpatrick. From an early age, Austin was surrounded by music. His uncle, John Cale, is a founding member of Velvet Underground and his Aunt was a major label executive for
most her life. Austin’s father was also a musician and DJ and raised him on soul, R&B and Hip-Hop music.

Born in Mission Viejo and raised in Corona, Austin has a deep affinity for Southern California and its culture. Some of his earliest inspirations were California artists No Doubt, Dr. Dre and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. From there he ventured further into the Alternative and Hip-Hop realms like Run DMC, Bloc Party and Gorillaz (specifically their album Demon Days).

At age 12, Austin taught himself the drums and electric guitar and began to make his own music. He then started to play in a handful of bands and joined music programs at his junior high school. His passion for music only expanded as he entered high school. At age 14, he formed a band with his friends Kyle Harward and Jeff Riggs –
Novele.

Novele began as a garage-rock band in the Inland Empire of Southern California. In early years, the trio played countless house parties and shows in and around their hometown. This was mainly experimental music in the vein of As Tall As Lions. They then faced turbulent times due to a variety of mental health and funding issues and had to take a break from each other. Kyle and Jeff have since returned to the group, but Austin remains the principal songwriter.

During the time apart, Austin continued to grow as a musician, songwriter and producer. He began to focus more on creating hip-hop beats for rappers. However, his love for punk and pop music never left and he began to fuse the genres into one.

This is where Novele’s current sound stems from. A fusion of punk, hip-hop and pop that form a true alternative style. The songs and lyrics pull from Austin’s personal experiences and struggles with mental health and overcoming depression which encompasses the deep emotion and raw passion that fuel the music.

Now 10 years later, Novele is set to release a debut demo album on September 14th. The album contains ideas from the early band days (“After The War”, “Rubies”) as well as newer tracks that Austin composed on his own (“T.S.”, “Tears”). The album is a journey through the tempestuous yet beautiful lifespan of the band. Enjoy.

Joe Hawes – Always

Joe Hawes in an English DJ and Producer based out of the South West town, Torquay. Having started his musical journey at a very young age, Joe first picked up a set of drum sticks at the age of twelve and instantly fell in love with the repetitive nature of creating beats. Also training in orchestral percussion, Joe would eventually go on to study Drums with Music and Music Tech at a music college, eventually finishing with a grade 8 in Drumming and also Orchestral Percussion. Having also learned to play the bass guitar, guitar and piano, music was always a career path Joe would dream about walking but it wasn’t until taking up DJing at the age of seventeen that his dream started to become a reality. With a natural tendency towards drumming and creating energetic beats, his transition into electronic music was a smooth one and Joe soon began to make a name for himself as both a DJ and a producer.
With positive energetic music always at the forefront of Joe’s work, house music was the natural direction for his DJing career to take. Using live drums and electronic pads in his sets, along with bass heavy drops quickly helped Joe find his place in the ranks of the finest up and coming Future House DJs in the UK and beyond. Inspired by the likes of Don Diablo and Martin Garrix, Joe fits the mould of a big room DJ to a tee and with appearances in Amnesia, Ibiza for Cream and at a sold out Wakestock Festival in Wales, supporting the likes of Calvin Harris and Deadmau5 along the way, it is easy to see why he is considered one to watch on the UK’s clubbing circuit. Currently holding residencies for Park Lane, Torquay and Embargos, London, as well as weekly performances in many of Torquay’s most popular student venues, Joe is a DJ who gets the same buzz from playing to a crowd in an intimate venue as he does to a super club in Ibiza, for him it really is all about the music.
Having done some remix work for various artist in the past, Joe is now concentrating his efforts on making his own original productions. After founding his own label, Coffee House Records, Joe has a catalogue of tracks awaiting release, including a rework of a Coldplay song, which has been “going off” at all of his recent shows. Joe also hosts a monthly radio show on Mixcloud, Coffee House Radio, where he showcases his own productions and shares his hottest selections.
With an ever growing list of local and international bookings, including a debut set in Ibiza’s Eden Nightclub, as well as a number of releases lined up on Coffee House Records, it’s clear that 2018 is going to be a real breakthrough year for Joe Hawes. Watch this space.

BLYNE – Water

Unsigned Music

Unsigned Jan Hammele, 26, and Andreas Huber, 25, are two ambitious and experienced producers, multi-instrumentalists, DJs and live-acts who have been making music together for six years.
The two perfectionists first got to know each other during their studies in Audio Design at the School Of Popular Arts Berlin (hdpk) and have been involved in several collaborative projects since then. They quickly discovered a similar taste and working process which brought them together on a professional level.
Jan‘s musical approach has been influenced by his early involvement in a punk/grunge band where he was front singer and played both the guitar and the piano.
Andreas is an equally educated musician who began his musical career in numerous metal bands before he shifted his focus on other genres.
Drawn towards the zeitgeist of Berlin‘s electronic music scene, they developed an enthusiasm for the sheer endless opportunities within the genre. Formerly operating under their stage name Egokind & Ozean they started making music in 2010 and released their debut album „Transition. During this period they toured around European clubs as a DJ duo and live-act and played gigs in Belgium, Canada, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK and the US.
They have produced for numerous artists such as Alle Farben, Yasha, Lovra, L Devine and many more. For the multi-national selling single „She Moves“ by german EDM artist Alle Farben they received a golden record in 2015.
With their new artist project BLYNE the two Berlin based producers decided to shift their focus and devotion in order to developed a unique interpretation of contemporary pop music transcending traditional and national genres. By collaborating with different English native-speaking artists for each song, they create a varied but very recognisable sound which meanders between pop, r‘n‘b, hip-hop and electronic music.
