After the dust is settled, MUAY lays four songs over the blue and the nothingness, in a journey to awaken the true sense of self. CE LES TI AL is a trip illuminated by tones from of other places, recorded somewhere between the outside green and the stellar emptiness. Born out of a three day live session inside a country house just before the cold of Winter came to take its toll, MUAY blurs the lines between sound and shape, echo and noise, delivering an ode to the veils of time and all the ephemeral memories they consume. As there is always someone who lays under the air's shadow.
For us here at Juicy, CE LES TI AL is a tribute to a genre we fell in love many years ago but never got a chance to work with. Instrumental post-whatever-you-wanna-call-it, music that understands no borders - sonic or geographic - and carries emotion and a story told in between the cracks in the floor and the noise in the sky.
CE LES TI AL is available in cassette tape (with digital audio download code included), limited edition of 100 (50 red, 50 blue).
MUAY came to life in late 2015 as a duo formed out of a need to go beyond what both parts had already created individually in other projects. A demo was recorded (“PO EI RA”, "DUST" in English) and less than two months after they lapped Portugal from North to South in their tour "Espanha, França, Tudo".
A constant trip between Bangkok and Penafiel, MUAY mix a synthesizer with multiple guitars and worn out drums in a red-black mix of post-something, an Asian inspired meditation cadence with tiger balm fragrance. Their single EP “DA” was released earlier this year as a sample of things to come.
We got a new fanzine ready to come out and, of course, a party to go along with it.
The JUICE #04 is all about connectivity and exploration: joining people together, working out new and old links, tracing those cosmic dots that were always there to begin with and using them to navigate the unbeaten paths of this world. For this issue we shook things up a bit, trying different angles on the main topics we cover and also expressing our values not only through our team but also through the artists and projects we selected to feature and showcase.
Following the success of last year’s event, we get down again with the fine people at Doomed Gallery in Dalston’s Ridley Road Market to celebrate our yearly Fanzine release.
This time around we’re mixing a one day exhibition/launch with a pop-up store concept. We’ll be open 3-9pm, with main event kicking off at 6pm.
The artists and projects featured on the new issue will be showcasing their work, and we’ll be running a stall with all of Juicy’s endeavours: records, comic books, fanzines, limited ed clothing...expect special prices and a few surprises.
It was night of dichotomies. Revelation and mystery, cheerful and gloomy vibes. Roats Miguel brought his brand new EP to life on a perfect setting and we finally showcased the comic books we've been cooking to go alongside his music. We loved to hear all the positive feedback about the releases and the artist performance. Thank you to everyone who came down and became part of the awakening of Roats Miguel. Special thanks to:
Rye Wax, super chilled and helpful venue and staff. Apthy Khea, as always bringing a more humane and soulful touch to the show. Athlete Whippet, smooth and well curated music. Ester Kubisz, the designer of the magnificent shirt Roats now wears on stage.
