A four-piece band isn’t something you’d expect to be linked to drum and bass label Med School, but The Erised’s elegant electronica adds yet another string to Med School’s experimental and boundary-pushing bow. A unique collective from Ukraine, The Erised includes drum & bass producers Detail and Hidden Element, instrumentalists derived from jazz, rock and pop backgrounds and dancer turned singer/songwriter Sonya, together making an unstoppable combination. The band’s impressive debut release, the “Desire” EP, included the supremely popular “Pray” and “It’s Over“, which helped establish a core following amongst music fans across Europe and beyond.
Their debut album, ‘Room 414’, released in June 2016, was a mature, impassioned creation that explored the band’s vast emotional landscape. Its release was a landmark moment for both the band and the label
Playing live with a full four-piece band, The Erised’s performances are haunting and hypnotic, a perfect compliment to Med School’s eclectic selection of DJs.
