Steve Blair :: Minutes

“Who is Steve Blair? Little is known about the tight lipped Toronto native, he likes to let his music do the talking and his latest release does exactly that. Despite being a instrumental artist his songs tell a story, they become a soundtrack, his latest release ‘Minutes’ isn’t a album, has 1 too many tracks to be a EP and refuses to conform to a LP, but that is Steve Blair all over. A artist who doesn’t conform to the norm, who’s sound has been compared to a cross between Tycho and Emancipator whilst paying little attention to comparisions around him.

Sean Byrd :: Always Was

“With an undeniably cinematic production style, veteran electronic music producer Sean Byrd injects emotion and depth into a new set of genres, simultaneously referencing and abandoning past and current electronic trends. With a delicate, precise sound, Byrd invokes a thick atmosphere of nostalgia for the distant future. Fluttering melodies wash over a monolithic base of pristine low-end frequencies, while hypnotic percussion drives forward with deft command. “Always Was” is an introspective soundtrack. The tension between dark, icy textures, and lush, warm melodies plays out in a beautiful cascade of minimal drum and bass, sedated techno, and deep dubstep tempo excursions. However, genre descriptions can only begin to explain the brilliance and craftsmanship of this timeless piece of modern electronic music.”
