CORDSEN | DEEP DARK BLUE
WTDEP004 Introduces Cordsen’s concept of Deep Dark Blue related to his vision of techno. The repetitive and obscure music journey symbolizes the artist feeling of lostness in a world where everything looks a copy of something else. The only way to see the light is to break the normality and find like-minded individuals to fight this battle together.
The tune “Me, Metals and Machines” is almost a sound designer project: Various recordings are re-modulated in a dark broader panorama where elements are tightened together. Sounds borrowed by factories, rural machines and metal objects build the appropriate industrial techno introduction to the EP.
“Psychedelia” hits the ground running with a never ending loop that tips in your brain and imposes a bitter mood. Clap and snare chase each other and form together a continuous vortex of mid to high end frequencies. The lead has a modulated intensity going up and down and back and forth leaving a sense of controlled instability.
“R.Z. Drone” idea is to present a possible escape from chaos and self destruction. A drone-like sound sneaks through the whole track. The lead makes its appearance like the evil forces would chase the main character in a movie. This track is a send out to space.
“Psychedelia (Flaminia remix)” recalls the hypnotic loop of the original version and lifts it up on a layer of distorted drums. The background atmosphere reminds you of an imminent end of the world while the new lead alternates with the old one. The track rolls forward until it fades out like a light would disappear at the end of the horizon.
"Sometimes you feel the pressure
sometimes you lose the measure.
Oftentimes you don’t realise
that behind the ceiling,
there hides a light
that heals bad feeling"
