Baths 22.11.2013 @ The Oval Space, London

On Friday I had the pleasure of going to watch Baths (Will Wiesenfeld) at The Oval Space, in London.

I performed one of my first ever gigs supporting Baths, in Bristol’s Fire station, and felt it was necessary to see what he was up to. (That and that I pretty much got through 2010 by listening to his album Cerulean).

He has a new album out now, Obsidian (2013), which is what most of his set what about on Friday.

He wore shorts. The music was top.

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.

Bit Phalanx Podcast Vol. #07

Back in August I played a gig with Drawn Recordings, the night was blast.  Since the show I have been chatting with some lovely chaps who run Bit-Phalanx a electronic music netlabel.
Here’s their latest podcast where you can listen to some rather tasty electronica, and they were kind enough to play my new song Ga Ga too.
