Following on from a triumphant showcase last month that saw Lilith and Karton founder P.Jones play alongside NoVus Music founders Scott Kemp and Cris J, a further label showcase has been scheduled for June 10th ahead of Sonar in Barcelona.
Hosted by London based party curators Purple Inc., the event is the first of two ‘Checkpoint’ parties inaugurating this year’s OFF series in association with FACT. Due to be held at one of Barcelona’s most revered underground strongholds ‘The Apartment’, which will also play host to further showcases during the same week for La Vie En Rose, Leftroom, Second State and Innervisions, the NoVus line-up welcomes Guerilla Agency’s Lilith and Scott Kemp, plus a slew of burgeoning artists including tINI and the Gang members Randall M, Chad Andrew, David Gtronic, as well as NoVus co-founder Cris J and Purple Inc. residents Yvo Zanev and Dean Barred.
First emerging in 2012, the NoVus imprint has played host to some of the industry’s most exciting prospects including Randall M, Lilith, P. Jones, Chad Andrew and Duky. Furthermore with the release of NoVus VA Vol.1 earlier this year the imprint managed to top the Beatport Minimal chart, hitting the number 1 spot in its first week – a respectable accolade for any imprint pushing innovative underground music from hand picked up-and-coming producers.
With this being said the label’s next release is one destined to follow suit, with fast rising Ukrainian born producer KiRiK presenting a quality three-track EP for release May 28th. Receiving early support from the likes of LEON, Archie Hamilton, Primarie, Guy From Downstairs, Loopdeville and Ben Rau, ‘Loaf’ reminds us as to why this producer is one of Europe’s most exciting underground artists with a quality release consisting of industrial elements, spectral atmospherics and soft basslines.
