Evil Nine, who I can’t say I’ve listened to a lot of, have put together a mix of music ostensibly from horror / Halloween / slasher film soundtracks. There’s some really nice 80s synth sounds and production going on here.
Threw the full length tracks up on youtube for people to listen to with some minimal effects on the cover image which I think work quite nicely in an understated way.
Press release for the first release on ES Waves Media.
ES Waves – Neon Dreams / Laser Beams
ES Waves Media presents the first ES Waves release following a four year hiatus. ES Waves – ‘Neon Dreams / Laser Beams’ is a synth heavy melodic progressive house track (hopefully leaning towards what would have been described as proggy house in the late ’90s rather than present day, though that is only the writer’s prejudice) with some interesting sound design detailing and is presented here in three flavours.
‘Neon Dreams / Laser Beams’ is the long form track with an extended intro and outro (running at 11:00). The ‘Quick Mix’ (running at 07:00} has a dj friendly intro and outro but retains the same main body as the aforementioned long form track. The ‘Master Mix’ (running at 10:59) is a stand alone track with an extended introduction, grooveless breaks and some nice heavy synths. It was also created before the other two tracks were put together hence it really is the master from which the two other tracks were spawned.
2006 saw the release of the first ES Waves album ‘Nakatomi Plaza’ released on the defunct Inaspace Recordings label. Also in 2006 the dj Jonathan Lisle asked ES Waves to help out on his OS_0.2 mix album released on John Digweed’s Bedrock Records label de-constructing each track to create several dj tools which Jonathan used throughout that mix.
The near future will bring the release of several more club focused ES Waves tracks on ES Waves Media before the release of the second full length ES Waves album ‘Parasol Stars’ early in 2011. ES Waves will return with ES Waves – ‘Email for Lucky’ in early November 2010.
ES Waves Media also presents an occasional series of podcasts showcasing the music and dj sets of ES Waves. These are hosted by podomatic and can be subscribed to via iTunes using the following link itpc://eswaves.podOmatic.com/rss2.xml (retaining the itpc prefix). They are also posted on the ES Waves soundcloud page.
