Keith Haring Documentary Sync

keith

Disco classic ‘Mainline’ by Black Ivory has been placed in Keith Haring: Street Art Boy, an excellent new documentary about the artist from the BBC. International art sensation Keith Haring blazed a trail through the legendary art scene of 1980s New York and revolutionised the worlds of pop culture and fine art. The fascinating and compelling film – told using previously unheard interviews with Haring, which form the narrative of the documentary – is the definitive story of the artist in his own words. The documentary also includes exclusive, unprecedented access to the Haring Foundation’s archives, capturing the wild, creative energy behind some of the most recognisable art of the past 30 years. ‘Mainline’ was penned by songwriter and prolific disco producer Leroy Burgess and went on to be one of Black Ivory’s biggest hits, an iconic classic that is still regularly sampled and played in the dance scene. Check out the full track below.

25 – 29 May saw an exhilarating week of collaborations across different genres as we united Truelove producers and vocalists for a series of virtual writer sessions. Using Zoom and other online services, the Truelove Music Virtual Writers’ Camp took the form of a traditional writers’ camp whereby artists and producers are put together in a studio for one session to develop new song ideas, but in this case without physically meeting due to the COVID-19 restrictions globally. Three sessions took place each day across the week with musicians and vocalists joining across the globe from different time zones. Already some amazing results surfacing from the camp and we can’t wait to hear the finished tracks… stay tuned.

Giorgia_UNITED_Studio2020_DEF

Italian live performer and multi-instrumentalist Giorgia Angiuli has launched a new open source audio project in support of research against the spreading of coronavirus by inviting any producers and musicians self-isolating in their studios to collaborate with her.

In a statement Giorgia Angiuli explains: ‘Just because we have to keep distance, and can’t meet each other, doesn’t have to mean that we can’t work together on a new project. I’ll start recording some sounds and share my Ableton project with you. I call you all to add the other elements. It’s an ambitious project and I am positive we’ll make it together!’

The goal is to unite ALL TOGETHER by composing a track to help us carry on through these difficult times while also raising money for the  WHO and UN charity fund to fight SARS 2 – CoV. Anyone can participate and the final parts will be selected by the artist herself.  The project is in partnership with Label Worx who will support the distribution, and also with Beatport who are behind the idea. ‘UNITED’ will be credited to Giorgia Angiuli along with all the producers who make it into the final selection and arrangement. All the participants will also create a videoclip that will take shape as a puzzle and is already expected to go viral.

The money raised by selling the track will be donated to the COVID-19 Fund for the World Health Organization.  The solidarity fund supports WHO and partners in a massive effort to help countries prevent, detect and manage the novel coronavirus – particularly those where the needs are the greatest.

New Portable album released

The new Portable album has been released on the artist’s own label Khoikhoi Records. The 8-track LP unleashes yet another other-worldly wealth of solitary electronic craftmanship and represents Portable’s 6th album, two decades on from his debut release. A diverse range of sounds all in the South African’s signature style converge through driving and bubbling melody-fuelled dancefloor journeys (This Horizon, It’s Been Long ft. Korus, You Hacked Me) into softer, ambient moments (One Earth). This truly is a special selection of treats from the Parisian-based producer, with Laurent Garnier hailing ‘Ohh whaouuu… excellent album’, Honey Dijon describing it as ‘so good’ and Motor City Drum Ensemble saying ‘love your harmonies and rhythm programming, especially ‘Climb’ is perfect for me to play out, also really enjoyed the quieter tracks like ‘One Earth’. The Transit Of Mercury is available on all major platforms, check out the video for ‘This Horizon’ below.
