Glows

EASY

The experimental flair of South London artist Glows is what makes tracks like his most recent effort, ‘Easy’, so appealing. Built around some glitchy synth sounds and bouncy percussion, the tune marries the trademark darkness of Glows’ previous work, with a slightly more upbeat, danceable vibe that may well inform a lot of his 2020 output - The MostRadicalist

Astronaut/ Mockingbird

‘Astronaut’ epitomises Uma’s trademark intimate song-writing style, consisting of a mixture of lilting Spanish Guitar lines, quietly elaborate arrangements and an ethereal voice that draws you into the heart of her music. - So Young Magazine

Slow Dance '19

Slow Dance 19 is the succulent fruit of the label’s labour over the last twelve months. A thoroughly enthralling listen, ’19 is testament to the label’s commitment to multi-genre excellence. Throughout its 18 tracks, the compilation showcases wacky electronic daydreams, quivering ambience and moments of freak folk weirdness. It truly does gather the freaks and geeks from London’s periphery in one coherent place. - Quietus

Fran Lobo- Monster

"This track started from a jam on a Volca sample I'd bought myself and evolved into an embodiment of frustration with identity, relationships and dreams/reality. The song includes the voices of Deep Throat Choir, LIPS and the Roundhouse Choir and Jemma Freeman on guitar, samples and rare drum machines and synthesisers." It was recorded between Stereloab’s Andy Ramsay’s studio in South London (King Krule, Mount Kimbie) and Massive Attack’s 3D’s studio in Bristol.

UMA - Astronaut

“Her first EP, Bel·li (Slow Dance), will be released on April 16, Uma moves in between experimental folk and ambient music, creating with her warm voice a unique and absolutely personal aura."


u primer EP, Bel·li, saldrá el próximo 16 de abril en el sello británico Slow Dance, y en él, Uma se mueve entre el folk experimental y la música ambiental, creando con su cálida voz un aura única.

SLOW DANCE '19

Slow Dance ‘19 is the London music collective and record label’s fourth annual compilation, featuring tracks from collaborating or admired musicians and producers from the past year. It is the longest and most varied one yet, with 18 tracks by incredible new artists, who are asked to submit a track that they feel wouldn’t fit in a standard release. In previous years, the compilations have provided a platform for artists from bands such as Black Midi, Black Country, New Road, Sorry and Goat Girl to release more experimental solo projects as well as giving an opportunity to completely new, unsigned artists. Throughout the year, Slow Dance put an enormous effort into finding the most interesting and promising new acts and the compilation is an opportunity to highlight and provide a platform for this. It acts as a summary of the label’s highlights from artists and tracks of 2019 and things to watch for 2020 - from both within and outside of the label’s own roster.
