RVLVR & Ben O’Neill – Stiff Upper Lip
Released December 1st 2017
WXPN The Key’s John Morrison sat down with RVLVR, Ben O’Neill and Starkey to discuss the upcoming RVLR & Ben O’Neill collaborative Stiff Upper Lip EP, released this Friday, December 1st. They discuss the creative process of making this release, working with analog signal processing and a hardware mellotron, influences and more. Alongside the interview, they’re also premiering another track from the release, Stardust, which Starkey called “one of the best songs of the year, hands down.” Check out the full interview here. Preview Stardust below.
We’re really excited to preview the first music from the forthcoming RVLVR & Ben O’Neill project, out December 1st.
You all should be familiar with RVLVR from his releases on this label, as well as Seclusiais and other imprints. However, Ben O’Neill may be a name you don’t recognize. Ben met James (aka RVLVR) when as undergrads at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts; so this project has been a long time in the making. For the past few years, O’Neill has been flexing his guitar skills on the road with the likes of John Legend, Jill Scott and Kanye West (amongst others).

Mikronesia’s new hour-long ambient work Dissolve is released next Friday, November 10th. But today, you can hear a 2 minute excerpt from the prolific composer’s new music.
Dissolve was recorded and produced during Mikronesia’s recent artist residency at Liebig12 in Berlin. It is intended to be listened to as a still sonic journey lying or sitting down. But it can also be used as a soundtrack to yoga, meditation or inner/outer exploration.
Preview it below and immerse yourself in it fully next week.
NOREMIXES regular contributor Joo Won Park has been in collaboration mode lately.
