Caia Koopman




ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

From the land of surf and sea, Caia Koopman has emerged as one of lowbrow’s preeminent female artists. With a well-rounded background from her years spent obtaining her BA in Fine arts from UC Santa Cruz, to her time spent in the skateboarding and snowboarding scenes, Caia’s environment has both molded and provided an eclectic background that makes her paintings come to life. With her fine detail for beauty, inclinations toward nature, and collectiveness of the female spirit, Caia has quickly become one of the quintessential artists fully encompassing the elegance, strengths, and vulnerabilities of femininity.
 





Her work is alluring and has a hint of whimsy. It delves into the fascination of women, in both our conscious and subconscious ideals of the feminine role in society. Caia consistently submerses herself in subject that matter that is ingrained and full of cultural connotations. Caia’s work is infused with a variety of cultural, political, environmental, sociological, and dreamscape references. Her influences serve as an amalgamation bringing her world to life through deliberate references and reverent imagery, with the finished work deriving strength and beauty from the artist herself. Her playfulness in her brush strokes is a constant struggle with the reality and solidity of the paint itself which comes across in her work as complimentary forces bringing together a gorgeous and powerful masterpiece.

Manchester UK has been at the forefront for dance music for a very long time now. This city has helped created some of the worlds most talked about artists to date and still continues to give birth to more great talent in the area. So bring forth the man like "CHIMPO" who is a dubstep producer that blew up on the Manchester scene early back in 2006 with his release on MRK1's label "CONTAGIOUS MUSIC". Now he gets snapped up buy yours truly "Mr SILVER" for my label NEMESIS RECORDINGS DIGITAL" Here we "CHIMPO" get down on some real dirty dub business. Piercing pads take over the intro with ease while the ragga chants of "MANCHESTER ARE YOU READY FOR WAR" comes across full stage in the background. Then once this bad boy drops, all hell is let loose with deep deep sub bass lines and hard kick drums and snapping snares hit you hard where it hurts the most. This one has been getting a lot of attention in both dubstep and drum and bass scenes at the moment. Many DJ'S have been backing this track for the past year from ZANE LOWE, TODDLA T, ANNIE MAC, and DJ BAILEY just to name a few. Also not only do you get the original mix but also remixes from some of the best artists in the game from "ZED BIAS" with his garage style four four remix.

SILVER-DJ ORIGIN-THE EGO - MAINTAIN / AUTOMATIC - NEMESIS RECORDINGS (NEM016)


I hate having to write about my own music and i think this will be the first and last time i will do it, but boy i have got a spanking new twelve from yours truly and dead good friends of mine DJ ORIGIN & THE EGO from Chile. As you know DJ ORIGIN has been making waves in the dnb community for quiet some time now. From tracks like "THE FEAR" to anthems like "D DAY"  and "SARSAPARILLA KID" forthcoming on his own imprint called "KILLA BYTES" this year and next is set to be big for the north london soldier. So me and DJ ORIGIN got in the lab and came up with this hard teched out virus rolling track which really is not the style for DJ ORIGIN but sounds absolutely banging. Hard and punchy kick and snare travel trough the whole track with ease while the deep sub bassline grabs you by the chest plate to give you one of this years smashers to come out on NEMESIS. Taking a jet plane now to the other side of the world, i got time to go in the studio with Chile's most exciting DJ at the moment "THE EGO". This is the man behind the legendary "REWIND"  night that takes place once a month in Santiago Chile, if you did not already know. But anyways back to the music! So here we see mellow vibes hit you right between the eyes on this number. Nice summer time kick and snare passes trough while the vocal of "AUTOMATIC" blends through the rhythm track like a dream. This one has been featured on the mighty GROOVERIDER & FABIO show on BBC radio 1. Plus being played on the airwaves by DJ's such as BAILEY and CRISSY CRIS, Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for DJ ORIGIN EP and CHIMPO'S MANCHESTER ANTHEM forthcoming soon on NEMESIS RECORDINGS with remixes from myself SILVER, ZED BIAS, and DUBPHIZIX. Also later in the year i will be releasing some of my own tracks and a ONE87 LP is in the pipeline.

Tim Bret-Day

















Image and text source:LifeLounge




Tim Bret-Day is pretty much the shit when it comes to creating images of fantasy, desire and the somewhat ludicrous scenes that high fashion editorial commands. He's essentially the opposite of a point and shoot kind of photographer, constructing elaborate scenes of nauseating gloss, depth and glamour finished within an inch of its life. So its really no surprise that brands like Agent Provocateur, Harvey Nichols, Adidas, Mercedes and Smirnoff have all come knocking on his door to make them look good. His images have graced the pages of magazine heavyweights such as Harpers and Queen, The Face, Marie Claire, Flaunt... I can actually go on forever.

Pictured to the right of this post is some of his amazing work and for more please visit TimBretDay.com
