Schaus offers first new music of 2017 ‘If Your Not With Me’ a follow up single to his inspiring debut LP ‘Handshake’ from 2016.
‘If You’re Not With Me’ clicks through sharp turns of rhythm and style, navigating repetition and adventure. Hitting compose, a quick slice of classical guitar, arpeggiated synth, off-kilter drums and voice provide the message. The song is formed through a divergent process of guitar play, digital composition and improvised poetry. Following his debut‘s watermark, Schaus returns with a combination of dripping beats, a playful composition, and crooning vocals. This time, the music comes with a sharper production and an essential view of instrumentation.
We dished out 20 free mixtapes at our Christmas showcase with our friends Concréte Tapes. One side fully Concréte selections and one side ours. All kinds of magic within, including live versions and label exclusives. Buzzin off both sides of this one.
Following his DJ set for us at Soup Kitchen in November, Ono’s Michael Holland kindly invited us to play some tracks with him on his NTS slot. The show features 20 minutes of the Pregnant live set from Soup and bunch of other house favourites.

“Cozzzzz is a visual exploration of deterioration and permanence both physical and digital. Decaying glitched videos emulate bacteria consuming organic life and are projected onto digital plants who mimic life in form, but will never wither and die.” Galen
“Friends details the conundrum of connections as time becomes more precious. A love lost through neglect and delusion, the video combs through objects of a forgotten memory. Referencing symbols from other Schaus videos, Friends tries to make peace with the failures of a relationship. It also reconciles with anxiety around how we spend our time in a dichotomy of holistic and pragmatic approaches.”Schaus
“Slush In the midst of a demagogue, these lyrics reduce the trappings of academia to a slush. The ouroboros of theory and reality play out with history repeating itself as the statues cascade behind one another. The imagery morphs as the synths undulate and progress through a revelation in the track’s final act as the viewer is consumed by the snake. Slush is just the beginning of the journey of Handshake.”Schaus
