music that doesn’t drop.

Quite often when people hear my music they’ll tell me it doesn’t drop. It doesn’t quite ‘go there’.  I definitely agree with this.  However, I used to want my music to drop, and after working for the past 6 months on my new material, and indeed developing a new sound, I’ve reached a musical understanding with myself, that the intention of it is to just teeter on the edge of going there, and not actually commit to becoming a dance track.  It seems that my talent lies in composing tunes that flirt with the idea, but don’t take you there.  Whether this is just a fancy disguise for being lazy, I am yet to find out.

I’ve had people draw different conclusions and make vastly different comparisons of my work, which I love.  Its fantastic that people can all hear the same piece of music, but all have a different way of listening to it, and therefor have a different experience to the person sat next to them.  So I thought i’d put a few songs/artists on here that people have mentioned being similar to me, so you can have a listen and completely agree or disagree, or remain indifferent to!

Arguably, those tracks do have very dance based elements The music I like to reference and enjoy listening to is a mixture of full on dance tracks, and ambient/electronic soundscape pieces, which I think is how I arrive at the product I now have.

Its all quite exciting from here on in really.  Although its taken what feels like a big chunk of my life to get this project finished, its finally there. I am so relieved I can draw a line under it, and move on to noisier and tastier ventures!

‘A Very New Everything’ [2013] will be released through Bit-Phalanx, watch this space for more info.
