Nowhere else can you find such unexpected combination of club, rock sensibility, world instrumentation, and ambient energy than the new LP from Utah Modern Bass Producer STARBASS; and, in this case, it works brilliantly. Both darkly gothic and simultaneously uplifting, Distant Signals is a welcome respite from the frenetic saturation of over-used bass and glitch in the electronic music scene. Think Juno Reactor meets Cocteau Twins with a taste of Tangerine Dream. Listen, trust us, it’ll all make sense.
Distant Signals is all about texture and emotion, trying to paint a visual picture with sound in a very cinematic way. I tried not to care about electronic music categories and genres and just make music that was rich, detailed and full of feeling. The album works great coming out of a system at a club or a festival but also has an intimacy that is wonderful to listen to when it’s just your headphones and your innermost thoughts. – Starbass
