London based Split Music has fast gained a reputation for its expertise in placing music in audiovisual projects - from Hollywood movie trailers like (Blade Runner 2049) to brand films for globally recognised fashion brands. This reputation was affirmed this year, upon winning the prestigious Golden Trailer Award in L.A. They have now launched their latest project: the Research label. This will showcase the artists they represent, by challenging them to push the boundaries of their production process. Indeed this is not what you'd expect of the artists and what they usually do. The aforementioned modern industrialists These Hidden Hands (comprised of Tommy Four Seven & Alain) serve up the brutal and abrasive "Radon". The aforementioned award was for the use of their music in the brutal RAW Worldwide trailer. Elsewhere, the masked crusader SNTS is usually appreciated for his complex and highly engineered strains of hypnotic techno - but his offering is the cinematic and suspense filled drama of "Dunkelheit" which wouldn't have sounded out of place in the aforementioned Denis Villanueva blockbuster. Jan Grebenstein (Downwards) is undoubtedly one of the most singular talents in the current electronic music climate - his offering "Meet My Needs" sees the Kassel native deliver yet more contorted perspectives of techno that he's now renowned for.
