Exhibition V mixed by Ben Lost

Exhibition V mixed by Ben LostWhat was once Lost is now found… After an extended timeout, lasting more than a half-decade, Ben Lost has returned to the director’s chair of Lost Language. One of trance & progressive’s most eminent imprints, over its near 15-year label lifetime it has been the springboard for the careers of an axiomatic list of famed producers. To mark his retaking of its A&R reins, and a new waypoint in the label’s history, he’s mixed the fifth episode of its hallowed ‘Exhibition’ mix-series.

Ben launched the ‘Exhibition’ line during the label’s early millennial era, quickly helming it into a singular position in the mix collections of trance and prog fans alike. Now, almost a decade after he mixed his last one, the prodigal one’s returned to expo the ongoing development of Lost’s musical language. The album features tracks and mixes from array of new talent. In amongst its progressive foothills, trance peaks and Goan inclines are tracks and remixes from Manmachine, Ovnimoon, Superpsychics, Cosmithex and Sonic Entity, as well as more seasoned sound shapers like Guy J, Activa and Neptune Project. Ben has tasked many of them with remixes of the label’s vastly respected back-catalogue, with new directions & tangents lent to tracks by Space Manoeuvres, Miro, Barraka, Accadia and C.M.

Natasha Watts releases self titled album for SedSoul

Natasha Watts releases self tittled album for SedSoulUK Singer, songwriter, performer and entertainer, Natasha Watts reveals her stunning self titled debut album for SedSoul. Showcasing Natasha’s impeccable songwriting and performance skills, this gem of a debut boasts a crossection of Soulful Bossa to 80’s fused R&B and classic Soulful grooves, laced with heartfelt sweet melodies, down to the nitty gritty lyrics and silky smooth tones. Drawing from her own life experiences ‘Natasha Watts’ is a rich musical tapestry of honesty, empathy, sensuality, determination, love, feminity and compassion – encompasing all that is womanly.

My inspiration behind this album was, and always will be, the original driving force behind me …my Mother, who sadly passed away 6 years ago. But because of the last conversations we had, I found a motivation to achieve all the things I wanted to do … it took 6 years for me to get here, but I made it!.. Dream… Believe… Achieve!„, says Natasha Watts

Also adding their production magic to the album are Modern Soul giants, Frank Ryle & Rob Hardt, aka Cool Million.. All the singles released from the album so far including ‘Born A Star’, and ‘Go Slow’ have made the UK Soulcharts Top Ten, with current single ‘Change’ hitting the no.1 spot. Also topping off a great 2013, Natasha won The best New Soul act award from Soulsurvivors Magazine, as voted for by the soulful masses, a clear indication of how much this Soul Sista is loved – For once you can believe the hype!
