RACHEL ALICE JOHNSON Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 2 July 2017, Foreignfox

Former art student Rachel Alice Johnson has become a well-known face in Edinburgh’s music scene over the past couple of years, demonstrating a strong DIY ethic with both her releases and self-promoted shows.

Eschewing the album in order to experiment with different sounds, her latest single, I Won’t Remember You, is undoubtedly her best track so far. Underpinned by a chunky bassline which provides the perfect accompaniment for a vocal which sounds like PJ Harvey channeling Chris Isaac’s hit, Wicked Game, it has a dark groove which creeps up on the listener.

Having just surfaced from the studio she is already lining up new material to release later in the year and is in the process of planning a tour of Scotland and Northern England for the autumn.

In the meantime, her next live show is at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s on 16 July – a date to remember.

Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon run music industry seminar and social night, Born To Be Wide. Their next event is in partnership with Made In Adelaide and takes place at Edinburgh’s Summerhall on 9 August. It includes a panel discussion looking at how the Edinburgh festivals can provide a platform for emerging Scottish talent. For free tickets and more details see www.borntobewide.co.uk

INKKE Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 14 August 2016, Inkke

Producer Inkke (aka Russell Patterson) has been carving out a respectable name for himself on the Glasgow scene, running his FWDK club night at Glasgow School of Art and providing local DJs with a steady stream of music.

Meanwhile, further afield his own sets have been aired on everything from NRK (Norway’s equivalent of the BBC) to Prague station Radio Wave.
Previous offerings boast a sparse electronic sound which strays into jazz on the track Euphoric Acid, and incorporates elements of early nineties rave on Hardcore. And while his most recent ep, Secret Palace, continues the minimalistic tendency, it has a playful, sound-design component

Recently released on LuckyMe Records, it is a further seal of approval coming from the team which launched the careers of leading Scottish electronic acts Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and S-Type. Inkke is also due to appear on the bill of the label’s festival extravaganza, which takes place at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s venue on 19 August. Be prepared for a quality experience.
