George Riley

Running In Waves

    George Riley is London music's most uncategorizable new star. With a smoky, jazz-inflected voice, she weaves her way through productions that borrow from jungle, R&B and ambient soundscapes. On Running in Waves, a new eight-song collaboration with producer Vegyn, she's defiantly herself, writing with searing emotional honesty about everything from relationship anxiety to fear of failure to her love for Camper shoes. George has previously collaborated with ANZ, Joe Armon-Jones, Lex Amor & Olver Palfreyman.

    Double Virgo

    Eros In The Bunker

      Despite seven sprawling digital releases since October 2020, Double Virgo are still as elusive as they are prolific. The London duo (who make up two thirds of Bar Italia) prefer not to talk too much about their loose-limbed, full-hearted grunge songs.

      Now, as they prepare to release their richest EP yet via Vegyn’s PLZ Make It Ruins label, the pair can already count amongst their fans lo-fi auteurs such as Dean Blunt, Mica Levi and Yves Tumor.

      ‘Eros In The Bunker’ is characteristically off-thecuff, with an undertone of darkness at the same time. That’s how Double Virgo songs feel: instinctive, easy and light, like something you heard years ago blasting out of a car radio in the ‘90s - and yet at the same time, deceptively raw and real. 

      Occasionally, a squiggle of discordant melody, or a particularly searing image jumps out of the distorted guitar haze and grabs you by the throat. These are the moments that make Double Virgo one of London’s most exciting new sounds.

      Naturally (Vegyn Version)

      Visionary artist John Glacier combines punk and grime informed poetry with futuristic, glacial electronics and warped, poppy hooks. It's a singular and unique sound which although the sole owner of its author, would find company and sympathy with acts such as GFOTY, Hype Williams and AJ Cook as much as it could be found next to a Lil Simz, DISCHI or Tyler The Creator track on a mixtape. Her slack but inspired rhyming shuns old tradition, hanging loose with benzo-rap, Princess Nokia and Blackhaine like they're all just friends on the school bus.

      Produced with fellow London-born, LA-based producer Vegyn, it treads the radioactive, post-hip-hop badlands where genres, identity and culture blur and interact.

      John has confessed that the album's content is incredibly personal and poignant, opening up her heart and soul to the listener whilst keeping up a streetwise, asphalt-hardened front, the product of a world and society in which weaknesses can be exploited by the greedy and malevolent.

      It's striking, instantly arresting and rather quite special. An intimate and seductive journey that you'll want to play from start to finish every time.

      PLZ Make It Ruins - Locked Grooves

        London-based record label PLZ Make It Ruins have today announced a 40-track compilation of original loops from popular artists across the spectrum of contemporary music. Each track is exactly 1.8 seconds long and has been crafted with the intention of being looped repeatedly, creating a uniquely hypnotic rhythm. The compilation is set for release on December 4th 2020 with net proceeds from the release as well as the project’s merch package being split between ACLU and Liberty UK - organisations that fight systemic inequality on both sides of the Atlantic. Among the list of contributors are Blood Orange, Arca, Clairo, 100 gecs, Kenny Beats, Dominic Fike, Four Tet, Floating Points, label head Vegyn and many more. Artwork for the project comes from Isha Dipika and Travis Brothers. Please see below for a full list of participants. The phenomenon of locked grooves is something that has captured the attention of DJs and record collectors alike for decades; the final note on a record forming a coherent loop as the album comes to a close, creating its own abstract beat. This abstract beat is then used by DJs as a tool to seamlessly blend tracks after the song’s final moments. This purpose is the genesis of the idea behind the project, allowing popular artists from all genres of music to give their own take on the formula with a host of different sounds and atmospheres. The project launched today with a one-off special on NTS, hosted by Vegyn, that explores the music of all the project’s contributors, as well as including a mix created from all 40 loops on the project.
