SoHaSo (Something Happening Somewhere), the label run by ormer Trouw resident Nuno dos Santos, is celebrating the summer with not one, but two compilations. Selecting unique pieces by artists known and unknown, the SOMEWHERE series feels like a sound-based confessional. Telling unheard stories, exposing unseen surfaces and unheard sounds.
SOMEWHERE I and II are set to be released digitally, a vinyl sampler with a selection of the tracks featured in the full compilations and as well as a very limited run of CD’s. Something is happening somewhere, once again.
The first release contains some true sonic pieces of art, by contributors that have erected the label’s reputation in the first place: Love Over Entropy, Presk, Sigward and of course Nuno Dos Santos himself.
The Premiere featured today comes from Polynation, who brings us a nearly 9-minute thriller in the form of ‘Anther’. Polynation is an electronic duo that originated from the minds of Stijn Hosman and Hessel Stuut. Fusing moods of electronica with techno, ambient and world music, Polynation is foremost an exciting live-act that seeks out to start a musical conversation based on spontaneous interaction, improvisation and a more band-like approach towards electronic music. The dialogue between the guys is defined by the use of electronic, acoustic sounds and live drums to create a lush musical canvas influenced by live-acts like Bonobo, Caribou, Nicolaas Jaar and Minilogue.
