As far as record labels go they don’t come any better than Somnia…
Consistantly releasing high quality composisitons coupled with breath taking artwork, they are a label that manage to push boundaries and come up with original projects time after time.
The brand new release ‘Undercurrant’ by Kilowatts is no exception to the rule, and proves yet again that Somnia are leading the way in experimental soundscapes…
Ray Massini is the much talked about talent providing the art work for the wonderful Somnia Records releases. His work is unique, magical and vibrant, bringing together elements of nature, sound and mystical beauty in each of his creations…

Though you have a fairly large web presence, there is very little personal information. How about a brief bio as a way of introduction – name, age, where you live, family, what you do for a living. Or are these closely guarded secrets as part of the ambient music mystique and persona?
My name is Evan Bartholomew, I’m 31 years old, and recently moved to rural Hawaii. I create music and all that that entails for a living – touring, remixing, scoring, and running a label.

Bluetech returns with his first new material since 2005. After splitting his musical expression into multiple aliases, Phoenix Rising marks his return to eclectic, ecstatic, and emotional electronic music, and exists as a precursor to an expansive album entitled the Divine Invasion coming early 2009 on Aleph Zero Records.
Music incubated in dreams, flows of energy from ancestral sources, the shape of the wind.

Who is the man behind Emanuele Errante the artist?
I was born in Udine, in the North of Italy, but I’ve always lived in Naples, South, beside a 4 years experience in Brussels, Belgium. My strongest attraction is for innovation in any form: technical, social, philosophical etc. One aspect I find very interesting is the way innovation can sometimes be the means to reinterpret traditions, a precious key to keep experiences of the past alive and transfer them to the new generations.
