Ones to watch special

For this month’s Journal, we wanted to celebrate our Ones To Watch series. Over the past couple of years, we have had the pleasure of spending time with some incredible composers and performers who are at the top of their game. What’s even better is the fact we’ve been able to share this with you all and give you an insight into who we’ve got our eyes on. So if you’re looking for new music to check out or simply want to watch some beautiful performances & listen to some inspiring interviews then you’ve come to the right place.

Inspired by the disparity between the idyllic Swedish landscape and dizzying, complex narratives and emotions of modern life; Peter’s music is deeply intimate, as warm as it can be cold, but always soothing and cleansing. His honesty speaks through his muted tones, but also through his uplifting melodies and driving rhythms. 

His earlier catalogue amassed over 150 million digital streams, building him a loyal fanbase.After a period of reflection and writing, Peter signed to London-based ambient and post classical label Phases Records in 2018, releasing new music ahead of his eponymously named studio album coming 2019.

Andrea’s music is an exploration of deep and mysterious nocturnal spaces

ANDREA BELFI

Over the years Belfi has built a sound-world that artfully combines a modest drum set-up with an equally concise electronics component. He has searched long to produce and refine the acoustic timbres of his music, but has now reached a certain point of fulfilment, courtesy of his Saari drum-kit from Finland. Melded seamlessly with the acoustic elements is a Nord modular and sampler. On Ore, Belfi attains a masterful synthesis of these two sonic realms.
