FREQ magazine printed a label spotlight last september and somehow we missed it until now. the timing is actually perfect, heading into the new year - looking back a bit back at where we were at the end of the summer is good perspective. THANKS FREQ.

Low Indigo's eight release comes from Jolin Ras, a Vancouver DJ/producer and multi-instrumentalist rep'ing Outerbound / Transmolecular and Ulterior Motif. His influences of Jazz, Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, R&B and electronic beats all come together to form the most colourful release for Low Indigo yet. The mood is spacey and heady, with an almost tangible spiritual clarity and alertness. Perfectly off-kilter beats with dubbed-out soundscapes bubbling in the background and analog synth melodies upfront, all delivered in a way that feels very natural and at ease.

"The title of this EP stems from the time periods when creating these tracks (2011-2012). I was undergoing an awakening amongst myself, through the sense of being one with the universe. It was more of a transformation with my spiritual self and being in tune with the creator and the vibrations of my surroundings. We are all living in a cycle, we are here to find our true selves, cultivate our beings, and prepare our self for the next wave/journey to be rediscovered. Rebirth Cycle is my sound story being re born within the cosmos."

Rebirth Cycle is out Dec 5, with Jolin headlining a Cats Only Club event at the Rattle (semi-regular vancouver underground event) to celebrate. This will also see the release of a music video for Rebirth Cycle from the very talented Darcy Turenne.



crimson - timelight

out now...
crimson - timelight EP (low indigo 007)


1 - timelight
2 - don't know
3 - aaliah 2012
4 - faith 99

total playing time:
release date: july 17 2015

available exclusively thru the low indigo bandcamp
and at all other digital retailers following.


crimson's 'timelight' EP is the result of combing through a back catalogue dating back to 2012, and selecting a cohesive stand-out collection of emotionally-driven downtempo tracks. while the work is understated and possibly appearing simple at first, strong emotional undercurrents and subtle craft reveal complexities that stand the test of time. these tracks could easily function in the foreground on a chilled out dancefloor or play a more obvious background or life soundtrack scenario as well.

all tracks all were created in the late night hours past 3am "when most people are sleeping and you can journey a little deeper" quotes crimson. 'aaliyah 2012' and 'don’t know' are earlier works from 2012, while 'timelight' and 'faith 99' come from the later months of 2014. soft ethereal pads compliment darker off-axis vocal work over the shuffly halftime beats of 'don't know'. the heart-felt 'aaliyah 2012' is a tribute of sorts, made on the anniversary of her passing, though interestingly not sampling from her voice. crimson enjoys noting that the bulk of the track came out of a one night session he snuck in at the studio of sergio levels, fellow modern math and rinseout co-hort, while sergio was off on a cruise somewhere. 'timelight' and 'faith 99' were made in a tiny high-story studio apartment during a cold 2 weeks of icey calgary winter. "..i remember the windows being frozen shut. ..creating some warmth in the winter months is key, and i feel these tracks reflect the battle we face with the cold / dark forces."

crimson is based in calgary, a member of 'modern math' and 'the rinse out' family, and a frequent dj at the beloved 'hifi' club amongst other hot spots and festivals.
