As we’ve been making these plans for release around National Autism Awareness Month, and we’ve been seeing the tragedies occurring in Ukraine, we really felt there is a wider message in this song [‘Heart So Big’] – a message of celebrating the joys of love and humanity in all shapes and forms. We hope that some of our initiatives around this release will make a positive change and spread love at a time when we all need it.”— Matoma

Joachim Pastor – ‘Wardenclyffe (Mees Salomé Remix)’
With signature synths and dark undertones, Mees Salomé’s take on Joachim Pastor’s ‘Wardenclyffe’ accentuates the track’s otherworldly vibe, juxtaposing chaos and peace.

Girls Of The Internet – ‘Love Again / Baby’
“The bassline and riff for In ‘Love Again’ just appeared out of nowhere when I was watching Star Trek Discovery, which weirdly has been a big inspiration to our music. I ran to the studio to record them, and the melody and lyrics just seemed to happen. The track just seemed to appear out of nowhere.
‘Baby’ is a bit of playful lampooning of Daft Punk, and a million other people who have used the vocoder. There seems to be a running thread of lyrics and subject matter in tracks with the vocoder; they are all sentimental love songs with obvious rhyme schemes. I don’t know if that was pre agreed with the inventor or the vocoder, but I just wanted to gently mock it.”— Girls Of The Internet
