Regarding the new album Seeker the band tell us that:
Since we couldn’t work together during the pandemic we started making tracks separately which led to songs going off in multiple directions and there was no coherent theme. This led to us deciding that it would be better to focus on making drones, which, for us, is way better suited for remote work. Daniel could start out a track and then Johannes took over and added some elements, back and forth, this led to us releasing Stochastic instead.
Once the pandemic started dying down a little and vaccines were available we could start working together again on a more regular basis. We scratched a lot of tracks and developed the ones we both liked together. This led to the album becoming more homogenic.This will be the second album that we release completely independently, Stochastic being the first. We tend to gravitate to themes of post apocalypse and what comes after.
Solar Quest – Orgship
This is the album that really got us into producing ambient music. Johannes’s sister picked this album up at random at the record shop because she liked the design, and once we had a thorough listen to it we were totally floored. The textures and mixture of soft vocal snippets, flutes, drums and the occasional use of the 303 were right up our alley, and it’s a style we pretty much still adhere to.
Makai – Millenium
There is no secret that we are huge fans of Acid music but we’ve also been huge fans of Drum and Bass ever since our first listen to this album. There have been many late nights at clubs dancing to Drum and Bass. You can probably hear some D’n’B ingredients on all our albums – the most prominent thus far being ‘Proton/Electron’ from World of Sleepers, and the most obvious now on Seekers ‘. . .And On’.
Air – Moon Safari
Like everybody else we were floored by the beauty of this album when it first came out. It’s also a good representation for the grittier sounds that we love. Bands like Air, Portishead, Morcheeba, Zero 7 influenced us a lot and we believe it’s notable in tracks like ‘Gryning’, ‘Frog’, ‘Derelicts’ and ‘Starfish’.
