British/Dutch trio Cubicolor share their highly-anticipated album ‘Sometime Not Now’.
The three-piece electronic band – AKA Tim Digby-Bell, Peter Kriek and Ariaan Olieroock – are armed with their most accomplished record to date, ‘Sometime Not Now’. Created during the pandemic as a response to a body of work that was previously scrapped, the band rediscovered their desire to bring those tracks back to life. The band add: “It wasn’t the right time in 2019 for these songs, but we really feel it is now.” With enough time and reflection, they were able to come back to the tracks with fresh minds envisioning new opportunities in technological advancements taking place in the world. “When we decided to drop a whole album, it felt like a relief on the one hand but also like admitting defeat on the other hand. We just couldn’t push that train up that hill at that point in time, and that was very frustrating. A lot of doubt and confusion crept in as well because of this. But sometimes you just need to give something time. When we picked the tracks up again in 2020, the doubt and confusion had evaporated. Instead of road blocks we saw opportunities.”
Full of music that the band has had in their arsenal for a long time, the 12-track record is filled with introspection, self-reflection and critical thinking, whilst being bold and expansive on a musical level. They create warm dreamy soundscapes that take the listener on a beguiling odyssey through the spectrum of the electronic sphere, at once emotive and downbeat, the next uplifting and euphoric. This contrast is perfectly exemplified by the focus track ‘The Outsider’, about which the band says “We wanted to write a bigger tune that encompassed the energy of change, of seeking more and running with it.”
Throughout the record, the band explore their sound, style and pace in a poignant manner, whilst creating a unique and unconventional sonic space. Previously known as 16BL, a hugely accomplished act in the house and techno world throughout the 2000s, Ariaan and Peter had been performing and writing together since their early 20s. Meanwhile, Tim comes from an equally intriguing background as a poet and a playwright. Taking inspiration from philosophy, astronomy, history, the arts and culture, the artists continue to develop their sound, as Peter comments: “As an artist you have to try to create a really big swimming pool of inspiration to swim around in.”
Boasting over 70m streams across their first two albums ‘Brainsugar’ and ‘Hardly A Day, Hardly A Night’, the band have received praise from a multitude of music outlets – including The Independent, Clash Magazine and Line of Best Fit – as well as support from fellow music makers RÜFÜS DU SOL, Tale Of Us, Dixon and Diplo to name a few. With collaborations from artists such as Diplo and Keinemusik, and subtle references from the likes of Debussy, Aphex Twin and Philip Larkin, Cubicolor have created an album that breaks the mould and sets the tone for the future of electronic music. Having produced countless tracks over the years with no sign of slowing down, the trio’s brand new album ‘Sometime Not Now’ is a real landmark moment in the group’s career.

The Theory of Music
The theory of music has a long and complex history. Various viewpoints have influenced the development of the genre, ranging from classical and medieval to contemporary and modern. Contextualist explanations are based on the relationship of music to its environment. This approach highlights the adjunctive function of music in ceremonies, rituals, and the development of musical theater. The idea of a measure of truth in works of art has been voiced by many thinkers, including Plato and Aristotle.
Music has been characterized by its ability to communicate human emotions and experiences. The wide variety of styles and genres has allowed it to form alliances with words and movement. Throughout history, music has been a vital adjunct to rituals, drama, and popular culture. Music has also been used in psychotherapy, geriatrics, advertising, and a variety of other contexts.
In terms of geographical context, the United States is the primary producer of music, with many genres originating in the U.S. The first rock’n’roll song was recorded in Memphis in the early 1950s, and many other popular genres of music were born in the U.S. The country’s culture is so diverse that assessing local music can be a challenge.
The music market is decentralized. Its decentralized nature allows multiple contexts of music to coexist, allowing internet-centric hip-hop artists to reach the Billboard charts without radio airplay or record labels backing. Hence, understanding the market requires an analysis of the full picture of the musical landscape across all channels of consumption.
