Atmospheric, rhythmic synthesizer music
“Reminds me of the Vangelis ‘Albedo 0.39’ album I mastered back in ’76. I’m enjoying this project.”

“Rhythmically charged synthesizer music that harks back to the halcyon European electronic music era of the ‘70s and early ‘80s.”
— Textura Magazine
An emotional response to the daily Tube commute on London Underground’s deep-level Central Line
“My job was relocated from central London to west London — a route I was no longer able to cycle. Suddenly my daily commute was one long cramped Tube-train journey from East to West London and back again. Mile End to White City is a direct, unbroken, subterranean part of the Central Line.
It’s hard to avoid a feeling of claustrophobia when transported like cattle in a sweaty rattling metal train deep under the surface of the Earth for an hour a day. The loud machinistic sounds of the Underground invoke powerful subterranean atmospheres.
I restricted myself to only composing, editing and producing tracks during my commute and I did not allow myself to work on the music at any other time except on the daily Tube journey from Mile End to White City and back again. I wanted to know: did my music reflect, or was the music an escape from, this unnatural assault on the senses.
This was not about documenting the sounds of the Tube — there are no recordings of the London Underground. And this was not a soundtrack to a journey. This was an impressionist and expressionist sonic diary.
So, did the compositions reflect the noisy Tube or were they escapist? Creating sounds and composing music in an environment where the noise regularly exceeds the volume levels of a pneumatic drill is not ideal. There is a subtlety to the music, but a kind of loud subtlety. So, I think both. These tracks are the result of two opposing forces constantly pushing against each other. They are escapist atmospheric soundtracks corroded by deafening metal machine sounds.
As 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, it seems like the right time to release it: here is one early 21st century citizen’s sonic response to commuting across London on a deep-level line.”

About Ghost Station the artist:
Ghost Station is the recording name of London-based electronic musician Pete Warren. Warren produces atmospheric, rhythmic retrospective synthesizer music, informed by electronic music of the 1970s and early 80s.
Inspired by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop at an early age, Warren spent his teens experimenting with effects units, tape recorders and an eclectic collection of sound generators and instruments.
After years of musical exploration, Warren has finally condensed his disparate ideas and influences into a cohesive body of work on this Ghost Station debut release.

Bonus remixes by The Expert & Illustrate provide the finishing touch to this cohesive album, which is an easy listen from front to back.
ABOUT JERMISIDE & DANNY DIGGS
In late 2007 Irish producer Danny Diggs would reach out to collaborate with Atlanta based, Cincinnati-bred emcee Jermiside on a song for what was supposed to be a B-side for a vinyl release. While the 12 inch never materialized, the two would continue to work on what gradually snowballed into 2010’s full length LP, Middle Classic.
Jermiside began carving out a niche for himself in 2003 with the the self-produced and self released 7 inch vinyl record called NP45 Vol. 1 and later that year, The Biology Of Kingship which received favorable reviews both locally, nationally and also sparked the interest of various overseas entities. During this period, he would link with other like-minded Cincinnati natives Ilyas, Donwill (of Tanya Morgan fame) and Brickbeats, with whom he would later form the duo The Red Giants with The Red Giants LP (2006) and Chain Reaction EP (2009). As a part of the Lessondary Crew, which consists of Che Grand, Tanya Morgan, Elucid, Spec Boogie, A Brother Named George and others, Jermiside has made a name for himself with his stellar guest appearances. He has appeared on tracks alongside artists such as Tanya Morgan, Ill Poetic, Soulstice, Theory Hazit, Reef the Lost Cause and a number of other underground artists.
Danny Diggs’ production is very reminiscent of the Golden Era of hip-hop and, unsurprisingly, his music has caught the attention of such well respected artists as Killah Priest, Akrobatic, Shad, Has-Lo and many up an coming talents from around the globe. In 2009 he released Introducing Danny Diggs which featured a well received single “The Calling” featuring Shad K, Jermiside & Destruments.
Fresh off the release of his street album Ain’t Shit Changed and DJ Grady/DJ Iceberg-hosted mixtape 1-8 Zone Shawty, Washington D.C. rapper and 1017 Bricksquad/GBE/SB affiliate Yung Gleesh releases the video for “2 Thangs,” shot in Atlanta by Homespun Media Group. “2 Thangs” is the third single from Ain’t Shit Changed (watch the first and the second single videos here and here), which is available on iTuneshere.

The EP drives forward with the excellent songwriting and catchy rootical hooks. The EP features a diverse spectrum of Reggae sounds, from the pining of Sebastian Franks‘ “Sucka” and “Brown Rice” to the laid back R&B influenced feel of, “So Good”.
NY Social Status has said “Based on sheer music production alone, the members of High Hopes Band are definitely operating on the same frequency, and it’s such a pleasant one. Check them out. Or don’t. You can explain that mistake to your eardrums later.”
High Hopes is releasing the EP independently on their own label, Straight Forward Records. The EP is available from iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and many other online stores. Regarding the EP project, Jason Dick, singer & guitarist states, “It’s been about the relationships with people and really understanding that music is a whole other realm,” he explains. “Being in music is like being in another realm itself. For each individual person it’s just a bonding experience, especially when you get a group of people together that have the same frequency.”
