Red Panda Music

We celebrate the arrival of Red Panda Music; Barcelona DNA label created by Carla Agulló which gives its go-ahead to the September 25 with “Temporary Bliss” EP (RPM01) produced by the Latvian band Oriola 701 with remixes by David Douglas and Stillhead.

 

The news of a new label is always great news. Therefore we are proud to present the first release of Barcelona’s new label, Red Panda Music, created by Carla Agulló. RPM01 is called “Temporary Bliss”, EP arising from the emotional and evocative electronic music of the Latvia band Oriola 701.

 The combo settled in Riga formed by Andrew ‘Les’ Leskovsky, Gerri Pavloff, Paul Melamed and Vital Drozdov,  aka Oriola 701,  has been an active member in the music scene in Latvia during the past 15 years having travelled around the world with their characteristic live sets. For this EP, Oriola 701 has created “Temporary” y ” Bliss”, two subtle vocal pieces that will bring happy and sad memories, both dreamy but strong, and both in time hypnotic.

Channelling the Nordic style of electronic through the house and techno beat styles, the original works “Bliss” and “Temporary” by Oriola 701 are complemented with a remix of house by David Douglas and downtempo remix-meets-drum & bass by the original artist from Latvia, Scotsman Stillhead.

The quartet invited two artists to bring something intimate and personal to one of its two tracks: “Bliss”. While the touch of David gives a more upbeat generating a new flow to the track’s Groove, Stillhead version makes it an evocative landscape downtempo.

While we wait to buy it this Friday, September 25, vinyl and mp3, here’s the soundcloud with 4 cuts of this unprecedented “Temporary Bliss” EP (RPM01) with this particular family of Red Pandas opens for business, with the sole mission to make you happy.

ORIOLA 701

            Oriola 701 is an electronic music quartet from Latvia active for more than 15 years. The band was formerly known as Oriola. Their first official release dates back to July of 2005 when ‘Welder Girl’ EP was pressed on vinyl by Amber Muse Records.

Original duo of Andrew ‘Les’ Leskovsky and Vital Drozdov became a quartet in April 2012 when Gerri Pavloff and Paul Melamed joined to form Oriola 701. The name is a reference to an asteroid in the solar system discovered by Joseph Helffrich in 1910.

 

Since 2012 Oriola 701 has performed a number of shows, known for live performances and an eclectic dance style. In late 2013, the band’s remix was featured on Taran and Lomov’s ‘Sex und Liebe’ EP released on UK’s Manchester Underground Music. 2014 brought two original digital releases: ‘Magical Mystical’ EP on Swedish Oh! Records label featuring a remix by The Timewriter (Jean F. Cochois) and ‘Computer Hope’ EP on Amber Muse Records, including remixes by Phonetica and Pincer Movement (Simon Mills and Stephen Porter). The band’s newest ‘Temporary Bliss’ EP features two original tracks as well as remixes by David Douglas and Stillhead (Alex Cowles) and is scheduled to come out both in digital format and on vinyl in the summer of 2015 on Barcelona-based Red Panda Music.
