Happiness Project is back with a new 6-track mini-album of exclusive tracks and remixes from the forthcoming album Mutation. With additional production by JB Lacassagne (Dekad), Happiness Project starts its mutation towards a more electronic and solid sound. But Happiness Project remains faithful to its signature style. The characteristic bass guitar is still there, and from the very first second of the title track Big Cities, so is their unique mix of melodic male and female vocals. Big Cities EP is a first step in the new direction taken by the band in their new 10-track album, to be released this fall.

VANDERSON featuring Lambert – Sequenced Thoughts
Vanderson is well known on youtube (4800 Abos, thousands clicks) and within the electronic scene. Vanderson returned to his sequencer based electronics for what he was admired for in the past.
He already released various albums on several electronic labels like Syngate, Mellowjet and Generator. His recent Berlin School album on Spheric Music „Vandisphere“ received good reviews.
This time he put more work into composing clever and ingenious sequences that are at the same time very captivating. This was a great inspiration for Lambert, who is also very much into sequences, to play upon Vanderson basics. Lambert, influenced by Tangerine Dream in the early 80s, added several sounds and melodies to make the 80s feeling complete (Tangerine Dream – Tangram / Pergamon).
Vanderson found very good sounds to create deep and wide atmospheres as if somebody is admiring the astonishing cosmic space. Flowing sounds a la Planetary Unfoldings (Michael Stearns) lead into pulsating sequences.
Maybe this is one of the most fully developed and sophisticated sequencer albums Vanderson ever released.
It is a honour for Spheric Music to present this opus, featuring 4 long Berlin School tracks, on his label.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Dark electronic music artist Miss FD releases her fourth studio album today on Quantum Release Records, titled Transcendence. The album features seven new compositions written and performed by Miss FD, and includes collaborations with Vulture Culture and Robert Dante.
The new album is available on PledgeMusic, iTunes, and other digital music outlets. PledgeMusic orders include special access to behind-the-scenes entries from Miss FD made while creating Transcendence, plus availability of a limited edition 4-CD discography with Transcendence and Miss FD’s prior albumsMonsters in the Industry (2010), Love Never Dies (2011) and Comfort for the Desolate (2013), as well as other exclusive merchandise.
The opening track “Despair” is also featured in a new music video directed by Chad Michael Ward, which “invokes feelings of isolation and existential suffering,” says Miss FD. “Once accepted through self-examination, these emotions can become a source of primal healing, rather than an over-medicated symptom.”
Robert Dante, featured on earlier Miss FD albums, contributes string and guitar arrangements throughout Transcendence, and a piano performance of Miss FD’s “Transcendence Intermezzo”. Vulture Culture’s Alex Dalliance’s production work is featured on “Delirium”.
Introspection and acceptance thematically permeate the album, which concludes with “Icarus”, after the Greek mythological figure who famously soared on wings too close to the Sun.
