Wêreld Records (World Records)

WARNING: Image heavy post coming up.

Roughly a week and a half ago we saw the launch of Wêreld Records. Prior to that I was working like a bat out of hell to photograph the launch acts. 7 artists in total, 2 of whom are group acts.

I could easily have had them all come in on one evening and sit down and shot the exact same image, but that was never an option. They're all different artists, with diverse music styles and influences and I'd be damned if I just worked through them like a conveyer belt.

I still have several more artist portraits to shoot and I am really looking forward to some new concepts and ideas and input from them on how we will capture these images.

For now, here are the seven launch acts I photographed. For more on what Wêreld Records is you can go check out their website and Facebook.

Franco, a.k.a. Franx does some killer solo bass; looping and layering it with vocals on top.

This is Matthieu Auriacombe a.k.a Hello Beautiful.

Alex Parker and Jean-Louise Nel make up Academie.

The mad electronica wizard that will most likely make your brain short circuit, Jacob Israel.

Charlie Higson's soothing melodies will definitely lull you to sweet slumber.

For some reason Givan Lötz's voice reminds me a little of Ashton Nyte (in a good way though). The music is slower though and has this really beautiful drone to it.

Last, but not least; a Skyline on FireGood friends of mine. Great music.
