About Abeano Music

Abeano Music began in Spring 2008 to celebrate the best new music coming out of the UK and The Rest of The World.

Between us we’ve posted exclusives for everyone from The XX to Vampire Weekend, Hot Chip to Shakira and been one of the first blogs to post about the likes of Wu Lyf, Jai Paul and Jay Electronica. We will try and keep this up in the future.

Ps. We’re always looking for new contributors.

If you feel you could contribute something please contact us at abeanomusic AT gmail.com . It’s the same address for any questions, or send us music. It’s not for tips about penis enlargement. We know about that already.

    We’ve just released our first single ‘EMBRACE ME’ and we both absolutely love what you guys do at Abeano, we thought/hoped you might be interested in featuring or reviewing the track. https://soundcloud.com/thenakedeyemusic/embraceme

    We’ve had some really supportive and awesome reviews by The 405, The Line of Best Fit and Black Rose Music:
    “From floating down a river to walking into the funkiest hotel lobby you’ve been in, this is ‘Embrace Me’” – The 405

    “The Naked Eye are a soul-melting manifestation of our Anglo-Français détente… The song is an honest work, and ripe with class” – The Line of Best Fit

    “An excellent debut requiring numerous listens to reveal the subtle idiosyncrasies hidden inside” – Black Rose Music

    The Naked Eye are comprised of myself, Frenchie (singer/songwriter) and Charlie P (production/instrumentation). The Naked Eye was born from a meeting at music college in London and a shared love of break beat, Trip Hop, Down tempo Hip Hop, jazz and neo-soul music.

    With inspiration coming from the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Moonchild, James Blake, Billie Holiday, Little Dragon, Flying Lotus and many more, The Naked Eye have quickly developed a unique and mesmerizing sound, and are currently writing and recording their debut album in Charlie P’s caravan studio.

    Many thanks for your consideration,

    All the best,

    Hello Imran,
    Hope you are well.
    We are “Scene” a new electronic act from London, we have recently finished our debut EP and we are getting ready to release it later this summer. We have just released an exclusive preview on YouTube and SoundCloud and we think it might make for an interesting feature on your site. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpcdRqD7pdU
    In the lead up to this release we have decided to give away the track “Close to the Edge”, it’s a very anthemic number, we have just released a new YouTube video and free SoundCloud download. Please feel free to post these links/write about any of this content on your site.
    If you dig what your hearing and want access to the full EP for reviewing purposes or would like to know anything more about SCENE please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
    We are working independently and as such spreading the music through channels like yours is truly important to us.
    Thank you so much again for your time, I hope you enjoy the music,
    Big Love
