My debut album: what to expect?

The album I’m working on will really tell a story. It’s one of the most personal things I’ve ever done.

I can tell you my sound has gone a lot deeper and more emotive, but still packs that good old punchy low-end.  All the tracks I’ve made (or will make in the near future) are coming straight from my soul, with no genres or boundaries in mind. Going deep, intense and energetic. Making you think, dance and smile.

The artwork, which is also currently in the making, will reflect the story of the album very well. I’m working hard to give you the best musical experience I possibly can, you will hear from me when it’s ready! 🙂

Special news!

I’m very excited to tell you that I am working on an album! 🙂 I hope you are as excited as I am, I will reveal more info about it later.


Tunes of the month – #1

Raito – Moondance

Really digging this tune by Raito! It´s an awesome blend of techno & breakbeat sounds which instantly gets the rave going. The track is released on his ´Moondance EP´, which is definitely worth checking out.

Awesome 3 – Don’t Go (Kick’s Like A Mule Mix)

The track is dating back to 1992, but it’s still banging today! Heard this track in Berlin when I was clubbing with friends, and I was immediately sold. That feel-good piano riff combined with those bassy breakbeats, love it 🙂

Aprés – Prophet

Instant goosebumps when I play this one, the melody and the energetic piano really take me to cloud nine. Awesome stuff!


Why I do what I do

Why I make music

I love to make music. In all forms and genres.  Making music helps me unwind after a long day, it gives my emotions a place. It helps me through hard times, and it takes me even higher when things are going well. When I make music I try to translate my mood and feelings of that specific moment into the mix. In this way the emotions are permanently captured into a track which I can share with the world. A track which makes people dance, a track which makes people smile, or a track that gets people thinking.

It doesn’t matter how different we might be, in the end we are all human with our ups and downs. And us humans have one thing in common: our love for music. I put my music out there so it can support other people when they go through periods in life similar to mine. It can sometimes be a bit scary because music is so personal, but it’s an amazing feeling when something you created really resonates with other people.  And this, this amazing feeling, is what motivates me to keep making music as long as I possibly can.

 


Background story – Driving Bassline

When I started working on ‘Driving Bassline’ – it’s been a long time coming – I had just discovered the hypnotizing world of techno. Techno music really takes you on a journey, with deep kicks and rhythmic elements that keep on progressing throughout a track. It really inspired me, and with these vibes in my mind I started with the creation of a new kick.

The kick I created was pretty different compared to the kicks in my other tracks at that time, like ‘Revolution’ and ‘Shake’. Instead of the high-profile distorted kicks, I went with a sound that was easier to blend in the musical spectrum, like the ones in techno, while still maintaining a good punch – that electro / subground characteristic 😉

I really got in the flow after I had finished the kick, and inspiration took over. I wrote down the chords and combined them with a distinctive arpeggiating synth. This sound really represents the hypnotizing and progressive vibe I felt at that moment and before I knew it, all the harmonic elements and structures were in place. Love it when all the pieces come together!

During this process I also came across the vocal, and instantly fell in love. The prophetic words really added that deep and nostalgic spice which matches the feeling of the track. All these elements made the track truly come to life. A deep, rhythmic and harmonic journey through sound as I would call it!

I’m really happy with the track and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do. I’m excited to have it released on The Funky Cat, and I can happily tell you there is a lot more stuff coming up soon! 😀

Peace out x
