Senpu - Starship

Senpu (Laruche Records) is a 22 years young Parisian beatmaker. He started learning music in his early years, his parents enrolled him at the conservatory where he could learn to play guitar, violin and piano.

At the age of 17 he felt the need to create his own music for his songs.
After performing live on stage a few times he decided to focus more on making instrumentals using his families vinyl records as influences which range from Michael Jackson, Duke Ellington, Bob Marley to Stevie wonder, Luther Vandross or more modern producers like Evil Needle who remains one of his favorite beatmakers.

Senpu also just releases his 3rd project called "Natural EP (Laruche Recrods)" which as its title indicates it, proposes us to stopover at his home, in the heart of nature. Senpu allows us to discover his music and his universe brilliantly. Please support his latest project.

Ohmega Watts - Labor of Love VII

This is the 7th installment in my mix series as the title implies and is a "Labor of Love" featuring selections from both my vinyl collection and newer remixes and digital only tracks. Given that LOVE in all of it's forms isn't reserved for only 'ONE DAY' but ALL-WAYS! These mixes focus in on songs pertaining to love, but spans the gamut of Love. Love for God, people, a significant other, the love for dance, as well as the heartache of love lost and getting over it. I began this series for the LOVE of music and the love of sharing that music, both old, new and the unheard.

Kwesi - This, Always

New beautiful jazz piece by our guy Kwesi. 

I am a designer living in New York and I have been in love with Jazz for as long as I can remember. When I began making music, thought I loved the 808’s and electronic synths, I always wanted a little more fulfillment. Through a combination of a very tough year and frustration, I eventually stopped making music completely; until I found myself in a park one day listening to Jazz musicians.

For the first time in a while, I fell in love with the freedom of music. Making what the heart wanted to hear and feel rather than what I believe fit the mainstream Soundcloud persona. As a result, I deleted most of my synths and made a deal with myself to stay true to what I deemed fit for my emotional story.

“This, Always” is a tribute to music and love. It is a promise that I will do my best to continue tugging onto my heart stings to feel what needs to be felt rather than holding back; to let the heart lead me on unexpected journeys of memorable passion and beyond.

I hope you will follow my journey of discovery, and hope you will be inspired just as I was in that park.
