More Info

berraschende Verschmelzung von NICK PARKINs geheimnisvollen Sphren-Gerusch-Ambient Sounds mit schmissigen Break- und Techno-Beats. The absolute space-dance!

Red Shift fuses blistering hypnotic break beats with dark atmospheric sound textures and derives its inspiration from the images of distant galaxies and planets captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. Imaginings of distant space are counterbalanced by the gritty reality of living and creating in the dense urban environment of London and the impact this has on everyday aural experiences. Beats and breaks are constructed individually and meticulously in the break beat science style and merged with sampled and synthesised sound to create a compelling sonic experience. Nick Parkin is well-known for his many CD releases revolving around atmospheric dark electronica and elemental electroacoustic soundscapes, including Island of Dust (1999), Entropolis (2001) and Geomorphic Resonance (2001), which were released by Soleilmoon. He was awarded first prize at Bourges International electroacoustic music awards in 2001 for his elemental electroacoustic work Magmas, which has since enjoyed considerable international airplay. He brings his long term experience of using elements of drum and bass within his commissioned music for dance and theatre companies to startling effect in Red Shift and has teamed up with Tom Gillieron, a DJ, House and Drum and Bass artist and producer. Tom has released a number of 12" singles on the Dutch Drum and Bass scene and remixed for people as diverse as BT in the USA and MJ Cole in the UK garage scene. [press release]
