Felsmann + Tiley create music exclusively on synths, releases the haunting ‘October’

Composer duo Felsmann + Tiley create their sound by exclusively using synthesizers, and it’s this technique that brought us their latest single, ‘October’, taken from their upcoming album, ‘Tempora’ scheduled for release on the 6th of December via Rare Ware Co.

Made up of German-born composers Patrick Tiley and Dominik Felsmann, Felsmann + Tiley share a passion for film scores, contemporary piano compositions and innovative electronic music. However, the two critique that, “film scores often do not stand up on their own when removed from their visual experience, classical music sticks to its centuries old instrumentation and electronic music is largely dominated by kick drums and percussions”. With their Felsmann + Tiley project, the duo are attempting to break this mould, using only synthesizers to experiment with the creation of an infinite range of sounds, new ways of modulating and expressing music and live performance opportunities that have never before been realised. 



Felsmann + Tiley’s unique approach to music by only using synthesizers to create their sound truly pays off in the haunting track, ‘October’. A slow pulsating chord lures you in while textural keys guide the listener forwards into the unknown. With each bar, more is added to this sophisticated track. Halfway in, a wall of sound hits the listener as you become indulged in the smooth soundscapes created by a siren-like call; beckoning you to follow and explore.

In conversation with UK electronic producer DEADLIFE on influences, anguish and making life easier with music


Originally from the quaint town of Crewe, in Cheshire, DEADLIFE is the electronic producer whose name has been on everyone’s lips in the underground wave music scene. The talented rising star producer has brought out a number of exceptional releases over the last few years and has just recently dropped a brand new 12-track album, titled ‘Variations On The Resolve’, which features powerful bassy cuts, retro ambient numbers and wave-soaked emotive sounds.

We caught up with DEADLIFE and got to know the brains behind the beats.

Listen to DEADLIFE’s latest album, ‘Variations On The Resolve’, above.
 
To those not familiar with DEADLIFE, how would you describe your sound?

Cinematic darkwave with a Synthwave aesthetic, peppered with ambient tones and soundscapes of a world that is yet to exist.

How did it all start for you? Why music?

I've been interested in music since I can remember pretty much. As a kid I was obsessed with soundtracks from my favourite games, I started learning the drums aged 8, and I was in an orchestral band for 9 years before starting my own rock bands when I hit 17. It’s been a pretty complicated, at times dramatic, journey through music. But I wouldn't change it. Music has always been my one main love in life, there was never any question as to what else I was going to do. It’s always taken precedence over everything else, and probably always will.

What three albums would you say influenced your sound the most?

My friend Tonebox's ‘Nocturn’ album, God Is An Astronaut's ‘All Is Violent, All Is Bright’, and Sigur Ros's ‘Takk’ album. Honorary mention would always go to Jeremy Soule's Skyrim soundtrack, I can listen to that on repeat for days and never, ever get tired of it.

Are there any key pieces of equipment that you can't live without?

My PC. It’s pretty much an extension of my body at this point, I'm pretty much directly connected to it whenever I'm in the house via ethernet cables that attach to the back of my skull.

What are some of your key influences in your music? Whether it be the sound created by others, imagery, films or any kind of art form etc...

I'll keep it pretty short and say my key influences are composers that create dark ambient soundscapes, that put you in a certain place in time and space that may not even exist in real life. I'm also greatly inspired by my friend's troubles, people I know who had to cope with a great deal of anguish. I guess in a way I see it like how an artist paints an image of what they perceive, but instead of visual, its auditory. And of course I'm influenced by my own life, which I won't go into detail about, but of course it’s a huge part of the process. I've always been better with music than with words, so I'd rather say what I want to say instrumentally in a piece of music. If I can immerse people for just a moment then that is exactly what I want to do, and I want people to place their own meaning on what it is they hear.

What is one sub-genre you think doesn't get the attention it deserves?

Soundtracks from video games. I'd rather listen to Jeremy Soule than 99.99% of anything else out there. I also enjoy musique concrete because its interesting to listen to, the textures are cool, it’s kind of surreal, and I like stuff like that. I also enjoy ambient playlists on Spotify, piano playlists, anything ambient and interesting. Most of the music I listen to I leave on throughout the day, it’s usually ambient and evocative, but usually not particularly upbeat. Life is stressful enough without adding crazy hard bass too, I'd rather listen to something nice, read a book, look at Instagram pictures of cute dogs and have a cup of tea.

Any new or upcoming artists on your radar that you think the world should know about?

Just my friend Tonebox, he's doing really well, I will always recommend his music to people because he's a good friend and fantastic musician.

You've been very prolific with your releases this year, bringing out two fantastic new albums - tell us a bit more about each one and how they came about.

My first one this year (‘The Order Of Chaos’) was more of an echo of my first album but heavier. When I finished it I knew it was time to progress and evolve completely, and move into a new direction. That's how ‘Variations On The Resolve’ came about. It’s been an exceptionally tough year, I've learnt a lot, both mentally and in terms of music production, and that album just kind of came out, and I knew that was the direction I wanted to go in. I don't listen to anything heavy or loud currently, so it wouldn't have made sense to make another heavy and loud album. ‘Variations On The Resolve’ (my latest album) drew more influence from the idea that life is a constant stream of unending anxieties with no real conclusion, and we have to persevere. It’s taking things that I find ugly and mixing them with things I see as beautiful.

What single night out has been the most memorable for you? As a performer? As an attendee?

Probably Perturbator last year. I've been speaking to James on and off for years now, so to finally hang out was genuinely fucking cool. It just felt like seeing an old friend, it was kind of surreal how well we got along after only ever really talking online and me sending him my shitty deep house mixes years ago.

What can we expect from DEADLIFE in the near future? Any upcoming projects or gigs in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?

I already have my next two albums fully written, and I have another secret project in the works in addition to that. I will always write, and when I'm not writing I'll work a job to keep myself busy. The way I see it, people deserve top quality, and I will always work to achieve that benchmark that I set for myself. If people are listening to something I have made, I want it to be worth their time. Of course, some songs are going to be more liked than others, that's natural, but every song has meaning, I throw away so many songs that don't make the cut, so I end up with just the ones that I think are worthy of a few minutes for someone out there who needs it. One thing is for definite, I will never stop writing. I have so much I want to say, so many people I want to help in some way, even if it’s just making their days a little easier by giving them something nice and interesting to listen to. I get that shit is hard, so I want to make it easier through music, if it helps someone then I have already succeeded, and that thought makes me smile and makes my nights a little warmer.

Famous last words?

Drink more water and stand up for yourself.

Electronic Composer Poltrock shares ‘Titanus’, announces ‘Machines’ LP

German producer and composer, Poltrock, shared a brand new track, ‘Titanus’, from his upcoming LP Machines via his own label Poltrock Music which will be released 16 November. Machines will be the final instalment of his trilogy albums that he aimed to release throughout 2018. Earlier this year, Mutes was released, and 88 days later (just like the keys on a piano), he released Moods.

Poltrock has been inspired and influenced by an eclectic mix of acclaimed musicians such as Jon Hopkins, Ryuchi Sakamoto, Rival Consoles, Tim Hecker, Johann Johannsson and Trent Reznor. Gracing a plethora of sounds, influences and emotions, David Poltrock’s music could be best categorized as a cohesive and intelligent merging of ambient, electronica, techno, house and IDM. Similar to classical and electronic artists and composers such as the organic finesse of Nils Frahm, the emotive heartbeats of Max Richter, mixed together with Stephan Bodzin or Marc Romboy’s skill to adapt to brooding electronic sections, focused in on beat and atmosphere to create something unique and entirely of his own.

The first single from his upcoming LP, ‘Titanus’ takes an ambient approach as it engulfs the listener in smooth electronic sounds, creating an ethereal landscape. The track sounds as if it would be comfortable among the stars as the cosmic soundscape is layered with rich textures with a foundation consisting of a pulsating beat. Soothing piano melodies and swooping string sections come together to culminate in an euphoric experience, allowing the listener to look within and contemplate their place in the vast universe. Poltrock proves yet again that electronic music can be experimented with, pushing the boundaries of his keys’ capabilities.

Listen to Poltrock - Titanus below:


On the LP, Machines, Poltrock comments: “‘Machines', the final album of the 'Mutes, Moods & Machines' trilogy, is a continuous attempt to make synthetic machines  sound organic and organic instruments sound like machines.”  

Watch the teaser for ‘Mutes, Moods & Machineshere.

Some more details on Poltrock’s final installment of the ‘Mutes, Moods & Machines’ trilogy can be found below:

'Machines' Album Tracklist:
1. 360
2. Cmr
3. Titanus
4. (And that's why I don't want to call this song) Forrow
5. Pyrus Aculeus
6. Muthos
7. Bastl
8. The Paraphonic Machine

Sorsari announces ‘Patterns’ EP and releases insane new single, ‘Monster’

It’s not everyday you hear one of the best wave tracks around, and yet, Sorsari did just that. 
‘Monster’ is the brand new single from this u and coming wave producer’s upcoming EP, ‘Patterns’ which is scheduled to be released next week (30 October) via the highly influential vibe.digital Recordings

‘Monster’ hits hard with deep cutting bass making it known from the start that he’s not messing around. Sorsari has always delivered some incredible hits, and it’s evident with the release of ‘Monster’ that his EP will delight fans even more. Wave is known for its emotional climbs, but ‘Monster’ opts for a more intense production. The sound is big. The sound is raw. The sound is Sorsari.


The upcoming EP ‘Patterns’, will include 8 brand new tracks including a remix from respected Wavemob producer, Deadcrow. What’s even more astonishing, is that the whole EP was composed, mixed, and produced by Sorsari himself. He relied on the talents of fellow vibe.digital Recordings signee, Guilt Chip, to handle the final mastering of it just to get a little bit of an outside feel. 


We’re very excited to see what this Canadian producer will deliver in his upcoming EP, so be sure to watch this space!



Listen to Sorsari - Monster here


Sorsari commented on ‘Monster’: “It’s my take on a what a higher energy wave track means to me, the vocal called out for a bigger sound so I tried to approach it with a mentality that would suit a club or festival environment.  It’s a nice hybrid between 808s and reese play for the sets.”

‘Patterns’ EP Tracklist:
1. Dreamers 
2. Will We Ever
3. Monster
4. Patterns
5. Flayed
6. The Great Construct
7. Closing The Tesseract
8. The Great Construct (Deadcrow Remix)

Darkwave producer, Verasect, releases an experimental EP, ‘Sleep Stories’

The eclectic darkwave producer, Verasect, has independently release a genre-bending EP, entitled Sleep Stories. Currently based in London but born in New York City, Verasect has traveled through the world of music, taking in an element of each genre, which culminates in the thought-provoking almost trip-hop beats of his latest offering. About two months we wrote about the release of 'Catch Your Breath', but the full EP is finally here.

Verasect’s new EP Sleep Stories takes the listener on a haunting journey through sound, captivating with glitch-beats, dark waves of synth and hypnotising female vocals. The EP begins the powerful track ‘Stitch’, a number which is simultaneously fierce and brooding, graced with Amy Kirkpatrick’s vocals and surrounded by Verasect’s skilled manipulation and layering. ‘Tragedy’ is an emotive number that paints a picture of heartbreak and darkness, singing “you’ve been banished from my heart”, undercut by Verasect’s crisp drum-beats that give the track a unique edge. Verasect’s ‘Catch Your Breath’ piques the listeners interest with eerie synth and strong industrial beats from the very beginning of the track and uses Dominique’s vocals to contrast beautifully with the dark electronic drums in the chorus, while the whole EP wraps up with the ethereal ‘Aeon’, the perfect laid-back techno-inspired electronic piece to showcase Verasect’s depth and versatility.



On Sleep Stories, Verasect explains, “After years of writing aggressive music for stomping around a dance floor in an East Village basement club, I wanted to create something more nuanced and balanced. The rawness was dialed down and I brought in pop female vocalists but kept the dark haunting atmospheres that is integral to my sound.”

Multi-talented instrumentalist, composer and producer Abraham Brody takes us into a mystical dream world with his brand new single, ‘In The Dream’

Abraham Brody takes his listeners on another ethereal journey with his latest track, ‘In The Dream’, slated for release on September 28. The single is taken from Brody’s upcoming album ‘Crossings’, an opus magnum that explores the transient nature of our time on earth through the mythology of his personal relationships, dreams, and imaginings of a world both real and fantastical. This mythic mood seeps into each one of Brody’s tracks as he explores instrumentation, sound and his own Lithuanian roots. 

Abraham Brody composed his album ‘Crossings’ in its entirety, providing vocals, synthesizers, violin, keyboard, and organ for every track. The new single from the album, ‘In The Dream’, has an exquisite arc, beginning with the repetitive hum of organ chords, in an almost ritualistic style, and then building layer after layer of cinematic instrumentation and Brody’s assertive vocal delivery. Brody tells us a mysterious story as he weaves through the layers of organ and violin with lyrics that conjure up dreams, nightmares, visions and myths.

Marie Davidson announces new experimental-pop album for Ninja Tune, shares John Talabot Remix

Montreal-based experimental producer Marie Davidson’s new album turns the mirror on herself. Working Class Woman - released on 5th October on Ninja Tune, is her fourth and most self-reflective record: it’s a document of her state of mind, of operating within the spheres of dance music and club culture.

Drawing on those experiences, as well as an array of writers, thinkers and filmmakers who’ve influenced her, Davidson’s response to such difficult moments is to explore her own reaction to them and poke fun. “It comes from my brain, through my own experiences: the suffering and the humour, the fun and the darkness to be Marie Davidson.” It’s an honest document of where she currently stands. As she puts it, “It’s an egotistical album – and I’m okay with that.” 

The sound of Working Class Woman is more direct than any of her previous outings. She still mines the same influences, from Italo Disco, to proto-industrial and electro, but leadens them with a gut-punching weight, making for a record that’s more visceral than any she’s released before. Industrial heaviness is balanced by Davidson’s spoken text – rather than spoken word, which she sees as a distinct tradition – dark, textured soundscapes are counterweighted by statements that carry a more darkly humourous edge than before, making observations on both aspects of club culture as well as more oblique critiques of the modern world. It’s something that’s encapsulated in the driving momentum of lead single ‘So Right’, released last week, alongside a remix from John Talabot: it matches pared back lyrics with a melodic bassline and bright synths, her words sketching out a euphoric feeling that chimes with the music. A self-confessed ‘workaholic’, the record can also be seen as a response to touring, which has taken up the best part of her last year, and is something she’s found both enriching and draining. Both under her own name, and as Essaie Pas, her stops have included Sonar Festival - where she performed her "Bullshit Threshold” show, combining performance, spoken text, video projections and analogue hardware - Primavera, Dekmantel and MUTEK in recent times. On the one hand, her live set is a creative endeavour that feeds back into her music. Playing, and travelling, on her own - which means marshalling a table of gear including sequencers, synths and a mic for her to sing and talk into (as well as transporting them between each of her shows) - allows her to improvise and play each set in a different way to the last. But at the same time, it requires her to project a persona: a demand that can become dispiriting.

Part of her response to these difficult scenarios is to turn to writers whose work offers guidance or inspiration. Recently, this has meant the likes of psychologist Alice Miller, physician Gabor Maté and filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky (in particular, his book Psychomagic). She’s always reached outward for the diverse influences that have informed her music, touching on big concepts and musical touchstones alike. But it’s with this release that she’s applied the same degree of focus to herself. The album is the product of a personal process: she looks inward to project a more expansive vision to the world.

Verasect released a glitchy darkwave track ‘Catch Your Breath’, announces new EP

Electronic producer Verasect has released his second single from his upcoming EP, Sleep Stories and ‘Catch Your Breath’ is glitchy darkwave treat to the ears. Featuring dark and seductive vocals from indie-pop star Dominique, who has just released her own second EP.

Verasect manages to combine both classic and modern elements flawlessly with his sound, ultimately creating something that is at once both old-school industrial in it’s delivery, as well as crisp and modern. The sound can be compared to legendary dark electronic household names such as Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails but also brings to mind the contemporary experimentation and bombastic energy of Crystal Castles and Purity Ring.

Verasect’s second single ‘Catch Your Breath’ piques the listeners interest with eerie synth and strong industrial beats from the very beginning of the track. This particular track has a steady, driving beat and Dominique’s vocals contrast beautifully with the dark electronic drums in the chorus, her soaring melodies layering perfectly over the glitchy sounds that build to create a deeply hypnotic song. Verasect breaks down the boundaries of darkwave and vocal-led electronic music with his compositions, making sure that his tracks grab attention, while still paying homage to the building blocks of the alternative electronic scene.

Sleep Stories is set to be released on the 28th of September.

After cutting his teeth in the studio track by track, he eventually found himself mentored by dance music legends MSTRKRFT, who guided the artist to refine his ear for more mature songwriting while still maintaining his affinity for industrial and experimental tones, the combination of which would later culminate into his signature sound

In Conversation with UK Wave Artist 'Visene'


Visene is a 19 year old bass producer from South-east England in the sub genre known as 'Wave'. The upcoming artist is entering the world of music in early years and has already prooven to be comprehensive, accurate and thoughtful as a producer.

We came acroos his 'Aamu Kuu - AAA' flip featuring Beau and decided to contact him for an exclusive interview about his, and our passion:

To those not familiar with you, how would you describe your sound?
To me, I feel like some weird child birthed by Grime & Trance, with primarily 140bpm beats, heavy reese bass' and trap drums over happy and euphoric trance-like melodies.


Which three albums have influenced you the most creatively?
Throughout my time of producing I have always been influenced by Blank Body's more early melodic stuff. Lots of reverb, heavy reese bass' and creative melody structures, whats not to love?

Burial - Untrue: Absolutely no words needed. This is art in its most expressive form, if you haven't heard this already i strongly recommend it to anyone.

MssingNo - M1 Personal Trainer: Pure beauty, this is where I come to think.


Take us through your songwriting process. Are there any particular steps you take when putting music together?
Coffee, smoke & a tidy work-space. I can't go into FL Studio and think 'this is what I'm making today' it doesn't work like that for me. My most creative moments are during events ie. spending the day out and being inspired by happy vibes, which of course, leads to happy music. This is also the case for sad, more emotional type pieces. I am proud to say that i really express my feelings through sound and i hope other people can feel that too.


Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, which do you prefer?
Personally, I'm a very chilled out person, i thoroughly enjoy studio work and music creation for the therapeutic side of things, where i am in my best state of thinking.


Any new artists on your radar?
Pholo
Beau
Outsidr

All ones to watch out for in 2018 and coming years.


What has been your most memorable performance so far?
I am yet to perform live, but i am very to excited to make memorable performances! Starting with Liquid Ritual's 'Hooks' show on the 13th of July.
This is located at Birthdays, Dalston, which seems to be becoming a regular hub for the Liquid Ritual shows.

Here is another great piece of Visene on SoundCloud. Follow the link and get the Free Downlaod

If you could collaborate with, or perform alongside any artist, who would it be? And why?
I've been to a fair few events in my time but the ones that stand out to me the most are the Kasabian shows. They really know how to fuel a crowd and they strongly inspire me to do the same. There is nothing I want more than my fans to feel the feelings they give through music. Even if it's to 50 people, its all progress, lets spread the vibes!


Tell us about any upcoming shows or releases you have in the pipeline.
I am very excited to announce i'll be playing at Liquid Ritual's show at Birthdays, London on July 13th b2b w/Pholo alongside Vacant, Myst, Kareful, Deadcrow, Stohou & Outsidr.


Famous last words....
"I'll finish it later"
If you know me personally you'll already know that i just do my thing. Meeting deadlines and general timekeeping is not something I've always been good at, and it it will most likely be the death of me, but do what you like and stay happy, its a stress free life!


It can be indeed! I like that spirit. Thank you so much for taking your time to conduct this interview with us. We very much appreciate your willingness to collaborate. Good luck with your show at Birthdays. We look forward to hearing your upcoming releases and hope to hear from you again soon!
