Øfdream releases wave masterpiece - Anthology Pt.1



  • Anthology pt.1 is the upcoming EP from French producer Øfdream which has just been released via The Playground Records. Amassing over 3 million plays already for his tracks, Anthology pt.1 shows off Øfdream's forward thinking production skills, placing him as one of the leaders and pioneers in the groundbreaking new WAVE scene. Øfdream has also gone on to sharing stages with the likes of Vitalic, Com Truise and Lorn at Electric Brixton recently.


Drawing inspiration from artists such as Nothing Here, Klimeks, Lorn, The Prodigy, Massive Attack and Mssingno, Øfdream’s forays into production began with early experiments in progressive house. Dabbling in hip-hop and creating new sounds and textures, his sound began to take shape akin to garage, dark-melodious trap and heavy alternative electronic inspired music by which he was influenced. The result is a remarkable body of work with groundbreaking, immersive tracks such as ‘Thelema’ and ‘Fallen Angel’, which paint a vibrant picture of glacial landscapes amidst gleaming, shimmering desert sands. Øfdream channels these fantasies into a spellbinding actuality of vivid and lush textures by creating deep, provocative atmospheres and hooks.

Øfdream comments: “I am really happy with the release of “Anthology”. I worked hard on the different atmospheres and space of this EP, and hope it takes your mind on a trip.”

Øfdream will be a guest at The Playground's event on  Rone, Parra For Cuva, Nhoah, Sex Of Insects and CHVRN at the Steelyard on November 11th. Tickets here.


EP Tracklist:
1: Thelema
2: Fallen Angel
3: First Woe
4: Ninth Gate

Collapse Under The Empire present 'The Fallen Ones' LP


Following the singles ‘Dark Water’ and ‘The Forbidden Spark‘, German duo, Collapse Under The Empire, present their signature blend of post rock and  synthwave on the latest offering ‘The Fallen Ones’ LP – due for release October 20th.

Collapse Under The Empire write emotionally charged and highly interpretive music and have drawn comparisons with legendary acts including Mogwai, God Is An Astronaut and 65daysofstatic, whilst receiving international acclaim from the likes of The 405, Q, Clash and Rocksound. Having spent the past three years largely focusing on developing other artists on their own label Finaltune Records, ‘The Fallen Ones’ marks a return to the forefront of the post-rock genre for the established duo.

It was 9 years ago that Chris Burda and Martin Grimm began making music together and to date the pair have amassed a catalogue of 5 full-length albums. Despite rapidly establishing themselves as an accomplished studio group, they were yet to perform live until the highly coveted DUNK!Festival in Belgium invited them to join the bill in 2016, alongside Russian Circles, Pelican and Nordic Giants. ‘The Fallen Ones’ will be the first record to be toured live in a decade and marks an exciting turning point for fans across the continent.

Each track on ‘The Fallen Ones’ represents part of a journey through a disparate, pessimistic future, yet as the album progresses, the pair also strives to evoke a sense of hope, power and inner strength. The melancholic grandeur of tracks like ‘A Place Beyond’ and ‘The Forbidden Spark’ intertwine with the softer, synth-laden moments of ‘Flowers From Exile’, whilst the overall atmosphere is punctured at timely intervals by the blistering crescendos in ‘Blissful’ and the album’s masterful title-track.

Despite being entirely instrumental, their music speaks volumes. Cinematic, spacious and hauntingly darksome, this is an odyssey delving into a surreal and uncertain future. The pair have shown no signs of wavering on their sixth studio release, as they look to take their sound to the stage and march towards a new era of ambient dominance in 2017.
