The Formant recently interviewed me about the creative process behind the Rainflow EP.
Rainflow is a change in approach for DROX, one that sees him move away from the contrapuntal raw machine music made for dancing we’ve come to know from the Australian producer and step into ideas of atmosphere and an aural feeling. “There’s definitely that feel — well for me anyway — of that idea of background noise and things in the distance which is what I was trying to convey,“ explains Adrian. It comes together through four magnificent tracks that progress with the ease of a Sunday morning, enveloped in a wispy, fragile atmosphere that crunch just beneath the surface. Like the sound of rain filling every moment of silence, Rainflow bounds with a distant noise, filling in the gaps between the beats as drum machines and synthesisers pulse with repetition like a mantra.
The fourth release on the Analog Cabin label is out today which is also my first solo EP for the label.
