§ RELEASES

Mikaere - We Are Each Other's Heart

Mikaere ⋅ We Are Each Other's Heart

S&O_010 ⋅ Digital ⋅ 2017-10-30


“Connections form, stretch, strengthen, weaken, twist. But ultimately, remain. Each new day and every experience adds layers and complexity. The colour changes, the weight shifts. But it remains.

Mikaere’s latest release for Sound & Object, We Are Each Other’s Heart, is a single track of deep house. Simple, dreamy and moving. Warm pads, bubbling bass, and crisp drums support a plaintive vocal line.”

Kopfbahnhof - Dreisam EP

Kopfbahnhof ⋅ Dreisam EP

S&O_009 ⋅ Digital ⋅ 2017-06-29


“For their first EP with Sound & Object, Kopfbahnhof deliver an EP of buoyant house. Dreisam EP echoes the river for which it named after… full of life, churning with undercurrents of light and dark.

The title track rides a rough bassline, slowly opening up into a sweeping house track, recalling sunrises at summer open-air parties. Shufflehofer Weizen, again is full of energy and light with a slight breakbeat undercurrent to drive it along. Finally, Mikaere remixes Dreisam into a more understated and atmospheric piece.”

Mikaere - Lone Start

Mikaere ⋅ Lone Start

S&O_008 ⋅ Digital ⋅ 2017-04-25


“The further from the start you are the closer the end feels.

Mikaere returns to Sound & Object bringing more of the wistful deep house he showcased on Passeriform. Lone Start is shaded with the nuances of melancholy, but uplifting undercurrents bubble up at the edges. The tracks feel fluid, organic and unsettled as opposing emotions vie for control. A regretful look back or a hopeful look forward? An end or a beginning?”

Annéke Laurent - 20 Inches

Annéke Laurent ⋅ 20 Inches

S&O_006 ⋅ Digital ⋅ 2017-02-28


“There are moods you become comfortable in, want to stretch out, and let settle on your skin. Here you could stay.

Over the course of 20 Inches, Annéke Laurent unfurls his tracks. Each lingers in the space, never in a hurry. The EP’s first three tracks offer a smooth meditative approach to deep house. Textures weave around nimble rhythms, elements slide in effortlessly, sustaining enough movement to drive a dance floor and the atmosphere to fit a living room. A remix from Mikaere rounds out the EP, echoing the resonant character set up by Annéke.”

RDMA - Little J's Poem

RDMA ⋅ Little J’s Poem

S&O_005 ⋅ Digital ⋅ 2016-09-30


“Like viewing a city through a car’s rain splattered window, Little J’s Poem is full of mood and colours. Serene, distant, colourful or disorientating, often reflecting your own feelings back at you. Turn a corner and a new scene unfolds.

RDMA has created the same feeling with this EP. Each of the tracks settles into a groove — follow the shifting hazy pads if that is where your mood takes you, or the bright synths that play around the edges. The rhythms are lively and meditative if you want to dance or just want to watch the pattern. Turn a corner and see what is next.”

May - 30 Segundos

May ⋅ 30 Segundos

S&O_007 ⋅ 12" Vinyl ⋅ 2016-06-27


“For the second vinyl we are excited to have Argentinean artist May and her EP 30 Segundos.

30 Segundos captures the spirit of summertime house music. When the sun is out, we shake off remnants of winter malaise. The light changes, skies open, horizons widen, the body warms. And our perspectives shift. You look up and see distance, every second a lifetime.

Each track offers a slightly different view on house music. The title track is bright and energetic, where drums and synths tumble forward. Cometa pushes the bassline to the forefront driving track forward while the synths and percussion dance around it. On the B side Leonel Castillo remixes the title track into 9 minutes of shimmering, propulsive house music.”

Timmy - Vamo' Paco

Timmy ⋅ Vamo’ Paco

S&O_004 ⋅ Digital ⋅ 2016-02-12



“Light reflects and refracts off water, painting a sparkling pattern moving across the ceiling. Rounding a corner, you are momentarily blinded by the sun.

There is a bright, sharp feeling to Vamo’ Paco — with stuttering layered melodies that play off a classic house shuffle. Both tracks have a jazzy undercurrent, Timmy develops a more energetic feeling with the title track and in Onyre pushes towards a deeper dreamier mood.”

Area - Forbidden Plateau

Area ⋅ Forbidden Plateau

S&O_003 ⋅ 12" Vinyl ⋅ 2015-09-18



“For the first vinyl release on Sound & Object we are thrilled to have Chicago resident Area bring us the EP Forbidden Plateau.

In Forbidden Plateau Area is able to create a mood of equal parts confident swagger and tentative emotion. Rich pads, loping piano melodies and robust rhythms swirl and mix to land somewhere between house and techno. The 3 original tracks — and a remix from Mikaere — create an EP that is full of space, details, bright edges and dark corners all framed by lively beats.”

G.U.A - Suppose

G.U.A. ⋅ Suppose

S&O_002 ⋅ Digital ⋅ 2015-08-26



G.U.A offers up Suppose — 3 gentle contemplative tracks for the second release on Sound & Object. The tracks sit somewhere between house, techno and minimal. The first two tracks build crisp percussive skeletons that let melodies and synth washes to hang over. The third track is a Mikaere remix of the title track — where he adds textures and piano to give a slightly more deep house feel to the original.

Suppose gives you a chance to relax and consider the world around you...”

Mikaere - Passeriform

Mikaere ⋅ Passeriform

S&O_001 ⋅ Digital ⋅ 2015-06-15



“For the first EP on Sound & Object, Mikaere brings us two tracks of wistful deep house with Passeriform. The title is a slight alteration of a term used for bird classification, usually referred to as perching birds, and each track named after a bird within this group.

Both tracks are wrapped in a hazy wash, and remind one of time spent watching birds move against a washed out blue sky while the world slips away becoming a barely audible buzzing…”
