If you’re new to these: I do these every few years once I have enough relevant material that goes nicely together in a mix.
This one touches deep jungle / D&B vibes, frantic breakbeat works similar to those that earned my stripes in the dnb scene many years ago as well as explores some ethereal bassy downbeat vibes and halftempo bass music influences.
All this material has been released on my label Lightless Recordings.
There’s a lot new music in the release pipeline.
You can find most of my released music (all of these tracks for example) at www.fanu.bandcamp.com and Spotify and other major digital platforms.
I’d still love to play these kind of vibes a DJ (or do a live set), so booking enquiries should go to firstname.lastname@example.org
Everything Is One
These two were my “Octatrack exercise” tracks where I learned how to use the amazing Elektron device.
I quickly threw the songs out after finishing; I checked their mix/master later on and thought they could be improved.
So, I spent two coffee breaks giving them a new makeup and fixed the frequency balance.
I wanted to deviate from my usual stuff (there’s so much of it lined up already, so just wait!) and take a break from the norm.
As a music-maker, I want to be exploring new avenues, as I think that’s best for longevity.
Sometimes you have to travel paths less trodden and go against what others might expect. An artist willing to be in the game for the long run needs to evolve and expand, and this is how. Expect the unexpected.
This album was something I wrote during the darkest winter hours – hence the name, “Valoton”, which is Finnish for Lightless. Musical escapism therapy at its best.
