Check this stunning new video from Noémie, lead singer of Gentle Mystics. When her 8 mystical brothers aren't about, here is what's left ... shall we call it Goth Blues?

Whilst lead singer Jay'la Payne is losing his marbles and pinatas in vegas, the remaining members are getting fired up in London, anticipating their first official release in Feb.
The skies have cast over and stolen our summer; one that will never be forgotten (find stories on our blog and pictures in our gallery). We thank all those that invited us unto their land; Boomtown, Secret Garden, Bestival, Firefly, Shambala, Boom Bap, and Hamswell, where we built our first EMSP area, complete with rave unit, pizza oven + 24hr good vibes.

We have just released a little big remix EP of Gentle Mystics tracks entitled 'General Misfits'. It features remixes from Gentle Mystics' very own Harky, as well as artists on EMSP - Himbad, Zai Tang and Lucid Mover. Burkules from Molotov Jukebox starts it with a bang. It's available right now for a mere £3 nugs.
Gentle Mystics release the official video for Spiralling Breeze. A momentous day for us all! Massive shouts to all involved - Nompi, Oliver David, Martyn Thomas, Ed Griffiths, Ben Hsiung, Emmet of Wino and everyone else. This was an in-house production so we are even more satisfied with it. Hope you enjoy it...
Emerging Species are proud to present HIMDUB #1: MOUNTAIN FRESH, this potent slab of 9-bit digi-dub is the debut release from HIMBAD, an individual who can only be described as a musical force of nature. Turn up your speakers loud and feel the Mountain Fresh breeze in the room with you as you are taken on a journey through bass and rhyme.
Gentle Mystics finally release their much loved album on 6 panel fold out CD. It comes with limited edition posters of their first single and the album, free P&P and buyers will shortly receive a download code for the digital version. We await the Spiralling Breeze video next Tuesday and the remixes soon after. Boom!
We decided to do a little showcase at The Blind Tiger club in Brighton. It was just a little show, but we brought DefDFires, Screaming Soul, Noemie, Cosmo, Death Sound Blues, Rev Wright and Seeds – a hefty chunk of EMSP artists who tore it up in fine style. Here's a little clip of Death Sound Blues, soon come on EMSP.
Screaming Soul enlisted the help of Dub legends Adrian Sherwood and Mutant Hi-Fi to revisit their debut album, creating “a radical re-versioning” - Mojo Magazine. The album was hailed as “one of the freshest, dynamic and brilliantly produced dub albums you'll hear” by Clash Magazine and is available now on CD and Digital Download.
A week ago we had a rather large filthy rave at the EMSP HQ to bid it fairwell. Not completely satisfied however, last night we had the mighty London Sound Painting Orchestra, Noemie, Dr Guss and Colombo Majik captivating a seated audience - and thus we move on in style. This is LSPO warming up for the concert. Big ups to Reel Studio for the edit.

This morning a strange paper was found in the streets of london, titled 'the Evening slander'. Its reports are mildly shocking, as they describe a world that has been swept by a violent zombie virus epidemic. You can still obtain a copy of this paper by ordering DefdFires' album 'o:zn'. You may also find it on the odd London Underground train.
THIS MORNING WE RECEIVED A TRANMISSION FROM DEFDFIRES' SECRET HIDEOUT, ANOUNCING THE RELEASE OF A NEW SINGLE, ALTHOUGH JUDGING BY THE VIDEO IT SEEMS THAT THEIR HIDEOUT MAY HAVE BEEN COMPROMISED...

They said 'you must fill out these forms and get a license to hold events at Hackney Wicked'. We didn't, but then followed a 20hr rave with 15 of our favourite DJ's keeping the crowd smiling till noon. Hail good vibes.
GENTLE MYSTICS are back from their French conquest tour, all safe and in one piece (or 9 pieces as the case may be). The tour was a great success and in between Parisian street jams, lavatory surgical procedures and wee drinking they even found time to wow a few crowds. You can find out exactly what happened on the road in the Gentle Mystics Tour Diary on our blog.
Last night saw the Gentle Mystics single launch party in East London. Celebrating the release of spiralling breeze & mushroom 30,000, the band stormed the stage in true chaotic mystical fashion and played a stonking set to a full house, before packing into the bus and setting off to france at 2 in the morning!
