Tone of Arc
- Touch Of Class, Om Records, No.19, My Favorite Robot, Roam Recordings
Tone Of Arc is the San Francisco producer/musician/vocalist Derrick Boyd. ‘Urgent Turquoise’ (their first full-length album for Om Records), Tone of Arc deliver an epic 16 track sonic adventure, sublimely blending Nu-Disco, Techno, Deep House and Indie Dance sounds. Three and a half years in the making, TOA have created a truly inspired opus that highlight’s their articulate, playful writing style and Derrick Boyd’s masterfully rich production ingenuity. Tone Of Arc, in short means the sound of the laws of creation, a name born from the wonder of the sound that holds all things in the universe together.
Subtly woven into the tracks can be heard glimpses of Derrick's musical for bearers; a tinge of Talking Heads, a wisp of Tones on Tail and a majestic nod to Bowie. From the standout first single ‘The Best Place to Fall’ (KCRW Song of The Day) to the sing along pop playfulness of ‘Shutters are Shaking', the KCRW - Garth Trinidad electronic favorite 'Tear Drops on the Moon', to the truly uplifting ‘Provoco’, TOA reassures us ‘everything’s gonna be alright’. Two unforgettable covers on Urgent Turquoise are; Spandau Ballet’s ‘Chant No.1’ and Portishead’s ‘The Rip’. The musicianship and creativity is on full display here. Every listen gives a deeper experience to the album, as new standouts constantly jump out, and satisfy.
Tone Of Arc, AKA Derrick Boyd has a live show that is something rarely experienced on the dance floor. Resident Advisor describes TOA as "a perfect performance piece leaving no one on the dance floor short of enthralled". While singing, playing guitar, bass, and keys during a fully mixed slew of original songs, their sense of bravado and daring blurs the line between traditional live performance and microprocessor obsessed futurism. Tone Of Arc has played at some of the biggest clubs and festivals around the world several times over including Fabric London, Panorama Bar Berlin, BPM Festival Playa Del Carmen, Pacha Buenos Aires, Warung and D Edge Brazil to name a few from a reputably strong list.
Prior to their latest LP Urgent Turquoise, TOA released 3 EP's in 2012/2013 with remixes by Deniz Kurtel, Luca C. and Prinz Thomas leading up to their debut full length album The TIme Was Right in May of 2013 with record label No.19 Music. In 2014, NY based Touch Of Class Records (co-owned by Michael Tello of Pillow Talk) released the Retox EP including 3 originals, a remix by Signal Flow, Pattern Drama and 2 remixes by Eric Volta.

“Dance, dance otherwise we are lost” the larger than life modern dance choreographer and ballet director Pina Bausch once said. The Cologne based DJ and producer Esther Silex deeply believes in those words of wisdom and took the statement as one of many inspirations behind her debut EP “Pachamama” for Sweden’s finest free spirited electronic music label Studio Barnhus. The EP title refers to the old mother earth goddess of the indigenous people of the Andes, who is an independent deity that has her own creative power to sustain life on planet earth. For Silex she is a divisiveness that follows her on each and every step as a female with groove in her heart.
After a nomadic upbringing all around Europe she started to play records at the tender age of 17 and quickly became an integral part of Cologne’s house and techno scene. Her sets are anything but predictable, with an eclectic selection that somehow weaves seamlessly through techno and house to soul, funk, afro and disco. This spring, whilst spending lots of time with her Cologne roommate Matt Karmil and learning from his experience and musical wisdom, he helped her finalize her debut EP. The three tracks named ‘Hans’, ‘Heinrich’ and ‘Oskar’ of her debut release, reflect this musical diversity and don’t adhere to any formula, whilst remaining entirely and explosively dance floor friendly.
“Baila, baila de lo contrario estamos perdidos” dijo la coreógrafa de baile moderno y directora de ballet Pina Bausch. Esther Silex, productora y DJ originaria de Colonia y con sede actual en Berlín, cree profundamente en esas palabras sabias y las tomó como inspiración para su debut EP “Pachamama”, editado en el libre y refinado sello sueco de música electrónica Studio Barnhaus. El titulo de la obra se refiere a la vieja madre tierra, diosa de los pueblos indígenas de los Andes, que es una deidad independiente que tiene su propio poder creativo para sostener la vida en el planeta tierra. Para Silex ella es una divinidad que la sigue en cada paso como una feminidad con ritmo en su corazón.
Después de una educación escolar nómada alrededor de Europa, Silex empezó a tocar discos a la tierna edad de 17 anos, convirtiéndose en una parte integral del house y techno de la ciudad de Colonia. Sus sets son todo menos predecibles, con una selección ecléctica que de alguna manera teje a la perfección a través de techno, house, soul, funk, afro y disco. La pasada primavera, tras pasar mucho tiempo con su compañero de departamento originario también de Colonia, Matt Karmil, aprendiendo de su experiencia y sabiduría música, termino con su ayuda su EP. Los tres primeros tracks llamados “Hans”, “Heinrich” y “Oskar”, reflejan su diversidad musical que no se adhiere a ninguna formula, pero permanecen entera y explosivamente bailables.
