January sucks. It’s cold, wet and we’re all still inexplicably shaking off our Christmas hangover with the summer seeming an age away. Luckily DT have been on hand to help you through this most precarious of months with more exclusive premieres than you can shake a maraca at (we’re all out of sticks) and we’re continuing that right through until the end of the month with another slice of hot off the press techno for your listening delights on this fine winters day.
Returning to Psyk’s ever impressive Non Series imprint for the release of his hotly anticipated album ‘Chronicles Of The Future’ we’ve been greatly enamoured with Tadeo‘s work for a while now and so are delighted to be able to exclusively unveil LP cut ‘A New Leader. The machine replaces the man.’ alongside a statement from the man from Madrid himself on how the work came to fruition. Check out both below.
“I started this album simply writing a script, I think it is important that an album has a continuity that gives the album a cinematic sense, basically this must to tell you a story. For this time I chose the topic of: “the development of human evolution in the future.”
I find it interesting to experiment with the sound and textures of the classical music, but not with the idea of how to adapt a techno track with classical instruments, I prefer to writing scores from scratch for each of the instruments and adapting synthesizers as part of that orchestra . I think that all this brings us an epic ingredient, that from the beginning I think it was the link between classical and techno music.
Besides the classical music, I have been experimented with different kinds of recording and synthesis, also I created almost all the sounds from zero. I have included different fx sounds, developed it with techniques as morphing and overlapping layers of sound, all to setup the tracks with a complex and rich textures, but with care about do not obtain something pasty.
I worked a lot with “the space” in the tracks, trying to place each sound in a particular three-dimensional situation with clean reverbs, also the feeling of “tension” is highly significant in this work, but ultimately the most important thing has been to build on a script written – as I said before – so that the narrative is a fundamental part of the album.”
