Premiere – AVER & Cappo: Something From Nothing

On 2 November, Village Live are going to be releasing the new album from UK producer, Aver; the follow up to his stunning 2017 project, Die Berlin Dateien.
Something From Nothing is the lead single from the album and today I am pleased to be able to bring you the premiere of the brand new video. The track features Nottingham heavyweight, Cappo – the sole feature on the project – and the pair deliver a strong start to what looks set to be another jewel in the Village Live crown.
Dressed For CCTV will be available on all the usual formats, via the Village Live store and there will also be a one-off test press of the vinyl available for sale on 28 October, which you you will be able to find here. The album itself will be available to pre-order from 7pm on 29 October.

Robohands: Lost

Village Live show no signs of slowing down their slew of releases and even seem to be stepping up a gear, as they prepare to drop yet another album. This time it’s a step away from the dusty hip hop instrumentals that have become their M.O. and an excursion into the jazz renaissance that is gathering strength at the moment. Robohands is the artist providing the music and his album, Green, looks set to be a very accomplished project. Lost is one of the tracks that will be found on there and gives you a good insight into Robohand’s sound and also his approach, as the video sees him laying down some drums in the studio. Looking forward to hearing the rest of the album, which is released in full on 23 May. If you head over to Bandcamp you can pre-order and listen to a couple more tracks from the album.
