FEBRUARY 2018 New Album ; Digital release Midnight Zone ‘Midnight Zone’ has emerged a little over a year since this Adelaide based, Australian artists last album, ‘What Goes Around’. Here is another instrumental work, retaining a familiar style, where Ambient/Dance fundamentals are steeped with prominent bass lines and uplifting rhythm patterns. Progressing on from this established framework, continued evolvement is noted by additional ‘synth-voice’ textures, and greater orchestral complexities, the latter is particularly seen in the tracks ‘Eclipsed’ and ‘Lost Horizon’. This album appears to be more refined in character, with an enhanced clarity and cohesiveness, but still retains a reasonably broad gamut of moods and intensities. Lighter songs such as ‘First One Then Many’, comfortably sit alongside, the resoundingly more energetic ‘Midnight Zone’ and ‘Wayward’. Regardless to the depths of introspective brooding, (as the title is intended to suggest), such contemplative sentiments are counterbalanced by compelling bursts euphoria and jubilation. ‘A Brighter Day’, for example, was written whilst in a state of delirium during a bout of the flu, lifting up one’s spirits! Imagine rays of sunlight making their way down to the ocean depths, there they may appear, to illuminate a direction of optimism, and passage of release …from the Midnight Zone!! http://facebook.com/paulhandleymusician Available through; Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Youtube, Amazon, Pandora, Deezer, Tidal, ClaroMusica, Saavn, and MediaNet, Bandcamp SEPTEMBER 2016 Adelaide based, Australian musician Paul Handley has had a busy 18 months working towards writing 10 new electronic, instrumental songs for an album, now called, 'What Goes Around'. Paul describes the primary aim and challenge for this release was, “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.” 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), who creates a gentle but powerful version which embodies a rich atmosphere of strings and vocal textures.
