Great electronica mixes often come out of extensive preparation to match synthesisers and beats, planning and careful orchestration of unique sonic textures and loops. However, there are also the fortunate and surprising occasions when a sound event is captured, sometimes casually or even accidentally, where it demands to be heard.

When satisfying my thirst for new sequences of sounds creating glitch effects, nu disco-style synths, dubstep-heavy bass, looped filtered chords, percussive bliss or bass grooves I captured my best strikes on Sound Shadows for you to listen too.

“The power of the moments I captured accidentally”
DJ’ing every Friday to a small group of friends and to test out my latest mixing glitch music from future chill & bass to dubstep and trap, I began to realise the power of the moments I captured accidentally, and that I owed those moments a chance to be appropriately represented.
Over the next days, I carefully designed the mix, to achieve a sonic quality that simply offers, in all its attraction, a collective musical statement of these sometimes impulsive or even incidentally moments. Drawing its sound from Trap, Future bass & chill and House elements, Sound Shadows is an upbeat and feel good style of glitching music and clever arrangement of tracks.
Sound Shadows a mix with dark but uplifting, and foreboding twists will peal and alert your awareness in search of the place in your consciousness that suits them best with some escaping to the dead zones of sound shadows. Decorated with melodies, in between harmonies, there are shouts and outbursts, and rhythms of chaos by the banging of punk rock, accelerated by the wobbles of dubstep.
Acoustic pieces sometimes surfacing above the shades of dark sci-fi, high pitched Vox, followed by euphoric shadow, bumping along with a lively bassline, spooky voices, panned percussion and shimmering synths. Complex but immaculate layering and many subtle sound effects emerge as each shadow speaks becoming a new source of harmony, a new point of centre.
Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy the mix, my best wishes Christian
