DIVE INDEX - LIVE VIDEO OF 'LOVE LIKE GHOSTS'
We've finally edited some footage from the live Dive Index show last Spring! The show involved three mounted TV screens to display visuals and since some the vocal collaborators were unable to get to NYC for the show, we thought we'd do some animations.
This video is for the song 'Love Like Ghosts (feat Mark Gardener)'.
Jordan Bruner did the visuals & animations. And Serko Artinian shot and edited the video.

Dina begins with a hauntingly beautiful vocal asking right from the start, "Do you wanna know what's good for you?...Do you wanna taste the truth of everything you do?" Deep, sultry beats and atmospheric melodies twist and turn in a seductive, uplifting and hypnotic deep house experience.
"THUS FAR" 12" EP OUT NOW ON WAVE MUSIC
Francois K's New York based Wave Music has released AlphaMotive's Thus Far EP. The Better Day (House Mix) has a jazzy house vibe with a big, warm, bottom-heavy sound, while the Better Day (Nu Jazz Mix) features broken beat style arrangements perfect for fans of Charles Webster, Chris Brann and Telepopmusik. The Not Alone (Late Night Meets Mix) is beautiful, laid-back electronic soul, with floating keys and a lazy, melancholic vibe. Highly recommended for those into the productions featured on compilations such as "Cafe Del Mar" and "Ultra Chill".

"TRANSPARENCIES" OUT NOW
Plumbline and Roger Eno's full-length collaboration, titled "Transparencies", is ready for release. The production process was somewhat unorthodox: many sounds and melodies were recorded in buildings, churches and Roger's living room in the English countryside of Suffolk, and then brought back to New York to tweak, manipulate and expand into full tracks. The result is Roger's piano, organ and even accordion combined with Plumbline's signature rhythms and tones. Simple and soothing, yet often layered with transparent complexities.
Buy "Transparencies" at hydrogendukebox.com
