Working with guitarist Mark Hickey on some new guitar lead tracks
Along with our free-to-download hip-hop instrumental EP, we have been working on some additional projects. One we are getting excited about as the finishing touches are drawing to a close, is an chilled electronic track with vocals by the very talented ActorActor. The tracks are reminiscent of our 2017 electronic single entitled Soma.
At this time, one track is totally complete and mixed, with only vocals and mixing left to complete on the second track. This double release is taking a little more time than expected to release, but we would rather do it right than do it fast!
In August, we released an 11 track hip-hop EP which is free to download. Just click here.
For streaming, the album is available on YouTube, and can be found by searching 'Erra P. - Hiphop instrumental Mixtape', or is available to view below.
Styles on this EP range from modern, lo-fi, west coast, and east coast styles. As mentioned, the instrumentals are free to use, but we would love to hear what you have done vocally with them. Feel free to e-mail us via the contact page or at firstname.lastname@example.org
We've been a bit quite lately on creating music, but for good reason.
We just created an artificial intelligence algorithm which automatically detects and isolates the singing voice from music. All of this was based on the physics of sound, the properties of a spectrogram (pic below), and made possible with machine learning. This was a full time project over the past few months and its made good progress and is now in the beta stages.
Now that we are out of the woods with this, its back to releasing music. We have a track that was recently mixed and mastered (finally!) and is due for release soon entitled 'Hoping for the Sun'. It has a summery vibe and we think you will love it.
We are working on some seriously nice beats too and always looking for a rapper. So anybody interested, please do get in touch.

We have been back in the studio making some instrumental music and are happy to release our newest single "Pharos" on YouTube and SoundCloud as well as all the usual outlets.
We have noticed from comments online and feedback that we the percussion elements are often very simple. This is intentionally the case as we like minimalistic music. But we took the feedback on board and challenged ourselves and made an instrumental with extremely busy percussive elements. The idea was that the drum parts would keep the listener engaged throughout the song. We had great fun making this happen!
Pharos is an old Greek work meaning beacon or lighthouse, and the Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, is sometimes referred to as the Pharos of Alexandria.
We have more tunes which are currently being produced and will feature some fantastic vocal lines and lyrics. We will keep you posted!
:We are very happy to announce the release of our Summer 2017 single called "Soma". It is out on Sunday June 25th and is taken from our upcoming EP of the same title. This song, and the whole EP is an ambient-electronic release with a really chilled vibe. We recruited session singer Lorraine Cormack to work on this track with us and she really brought it to life. Her amazing vocal performance takes the track to a new level. The cover for the single and EP can be seen below.
