British/Dutch trio Cubicolor share their highly-anticipated album ‘Sometime Not Now’, alongside latest single ‘The Outsider’. The record is available on all digital platforms via Anjunadeep on 28 October.

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.

Facts About Music Production and Festivals

Music is a part of human culture, and it has a history that stretches back thousands of years. According to Plato, music has a deep connection to ethics and human values. Music has the power to affect us emotionally and spiritually. As such, it can affect the way we think and behave. Historically, there have been several major changes in the way music has been viewed.

The nineteenth century saw the rise of composer-critics, artists with literary tastes. Among them was Richard Wagner, who was an active theorist. Though he did little to advance the field of music theory, he did introduce an idea called the Gesamtkunstwerk. This concept reflected the programmatic preoccupations of nineteenth-century composers, and added confusion to the field of musical thought.

Music producers are also constantly searching for inspiration. They will often save unfinished projects and come back to them at a later date. Once they find inspiration, they go into a state of flow, powered by creativity. This can be a great time to match chords with melody, or come up with a groundbreaking drop.

Music festivals have increased in popularity. Despite the availability of streaming, live performances are still a big draw for concert goers. In fact, the largest non-annual greenfield festival in the world is the Glastonbury Festival, which has a capacity of over 275,000 people. The Pinkpop Festival in the Netherlands, on the other hand, is one of the oldest pop music festivals in the world. It has been going on since 1719. Meanwhile, Australia has the Queensland Music Festival, which is the country’s largest music festival, lasting three weeks in July.
