After seeing releases from a host of new artists last year, Lo Recordings presents ‘New Shoots’; a round up compilation of 2017 and an introduction to 2018 with 5 of our picks from 2017’s releases and 5 new offerings from Hatchback, Body-San, World Air, Hi & Saberhägen and SMBD.
Each artist showcases what they do best in the new material on ‘New Shoots’...
World Air maintains his signature sound with ‘Gherkin’; innocent and playful FM synths riding through live percussive drums.
Longing nostalgia warms through Hi & Saberhägen’s ‘Rare Obi Strip’, driven with distorted tape pads and saturated thumping drums.
Electronic weirdness and experimentation glitches away on SMBD’s ‘Saturn Night’, flaunting his technical skill and palette.
Body-San breathes new life to new material from Hatchback, offering a blissful ‘coastal burner’ touch on his remix of ‘Creamwave Dreamcave’. Another one for the sun rise crew.
Finally, after a brief hiatus, Hatchback makes his long over due return with ‘The Video Suite’, a light and bouncy new age journey. We’re excited to say that this is a taster for his forthcoming album due later this year.

Well over 100 listens, and years later this is still my favorite album of all time. Yes, it will make you feel nostalgia for places you've never visited. Yes, it will make you reflect on your life. Yes, it will make you cry. Yes, you will fall in love with the repetition.
All the risks you never took in life; the girl you never asked out because you'd thought you'd wait for a more opportune time – this album will teach you that There Is No Right Time.
