Bio

Over the past 18 months Paul has been working towards writing 10 new electronic, instrumental songs for an album, now due in October. As a prelude to this, a digital release, single, ‘For the Love of Something’, came out in August and is available in online music stores. A special feature of this three song, release, is a remix of the title track, by the Berlin based artist Emika (www.emikarecords.com), and is the only song with vocals, (delay effected vocal textures). Paul describes the primary aim and challenge for the coming album, “To create songs that are engaging and captivating (at least from a personal perspective), despite lacking the cohesive thread of lyrics and singing. It was an aim to create instrumental music that retains a tangible narrative of an underlying theme. Aside from playing synthesizers in The What 4 (2006-2010), Paul’s most recent releases have been two albums under the name Electron, both more Ambient in nature, hence the album titles, Atmospherics and Nuance. In writing the current material, close attention was paid to the bass melody and rhythmic groove/tempos set to provide the underlying structure. For added depth, subtlety and variation, vast multiples of synthetic leads and pads were tracked. "Creating a CPU overload of challenges and headaches, working to tame and refine, sonic, monstrous outbursts, to harness the discord, and to hopefully arrive, at a place of composure, focus and clarity.”
