The infiltration process is almost complete, as Ear Conditioning are amp’d to announce we have struck a partnership with Finetunes Media Services of Germany.
What does that mean?
It signifies that somebody at Finetunes has faith in our vision, and we appreciate that. It means the label’s output will now be available via most of the worthy digital download and streaming outlets on the internets. You know, such as iTunes, Amazon, Beatport, Spotify even. We have a home with a distribution service that handles the goods for labels we respect, such as City Slang and Honest Jons. That can’t be bad can it?
As of 10th October our two initial releases, Socos Dúo with their debut album ‘These Times We Are Living’ and KingLMan’s ‘Vultures’ Bazaar’ EP from label head D.WattsRiot will be occupying a spot in the digital domain.
Socos Dúo ‘fuse classical with experimental to create hypnotically beautiful music’, while KingLMan stradles bass, dub, electronica in an attempt to be at peace with an upside down world, as Eduardo Galeano would say.
Both artists are readying new material to follow-up, but for now dig what is there, two distinctly different points of view that share common and distinct elements, if that makes sense.
We had the opportunity to appear in Mapa Sonoro, in La 2, RTVE. It’s a musical program with the look of a road movie that tracks the most exciting proposals on the current scene through a character who is never seen, but that takes center stage with his voiceover. It is a program focused on quality independent music .Thank you to our manager Dave Watts (D.WattsRiot, KingLMan) and Ear Conditioing and all the Goroka team for this awesome moment.
(Socos Dúo min 25:30)
