Dialect

Dialect is the long-standing project of British composer and musician Andrew PM Hunt. His album Advanced Myths was recently reissued by seminal New York label RVNG Intl. An enchanted exploration of unusual source synthesis, electro-acoustic arrangements, and found sound, Advanced Myth is its own cosmos expanding in real time.

Martyna Basta

Kraków-based artist Martyna Basta’s diaristic sound shapes a delicate atmosphere that balances lush and haunting. Classically trained in guitar, the Polish composer escaped academia at the age of 18, replacing her native instrument with a synth. She soon developed a unique way of composing, involving modulated voice, electronics, and field recordings. This radical transformation was captured on her first album Making Eye Contact with Solitude released on the Slovak label Warm Winters, which introduced her as part of a new wave in the European experimental scene. After the release of her debut, she reached back for acoustic instruments like guitar and zither, establishing her unique electro-acoustic tone.

Adela Mede

Adela Mede is a Slovak-Hungarian musician and singer whose works explore themes of home and spiritual growth. She draws on a wide scope of influences and incorporates elements of minimalism, contemporary vocal techniques or Eastern European folklore into her work. Trilingual singing, field recordings, experimental electronics and vocal processing intertwine to create intimate, powerful compositions.

Adela Mede studied popular music at Goldsmiths University. Her debut album Szabadság received positive reviews in The Wire, The Quietus, Dazed, Full Moon magazine and Foxy Digitalis. In 2022 she toured across Europe, sharing stages with Claire Rousay and Grand River, presenting her work in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Denmark.
