Akira Yamaoka

February 20, 2008


He is most well known for his work for the Silent Hill series of video games, for which he composed all the music and sound effects in the whole series.  Yamaoka’s sound commonly contains strong melancholy undertones and generally identifies with the dark ambient, industrial, and trip-hop genres. Since Silent Hill 3, he also started working in collaboration with Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Joe Romersa for vocal compositions.  Much of his work from previous titles has been compiled for the 2006 Silent Hill movie adaptation, directed by Christophe Gans.  His music from Silent Hill 2 was performed live in 2005 at the third Symphonic Game Music Concert in Leipzig, Germany. Yamaoka also performed music from Silent Hill at the world-premiere of PLAY! A Video Game Symphony on May 27, 2006 in Chicago, Illinois, and accompanied the orchestra with an electric seven-string guitar.

Suicide Sports Club

August 20, 2007


B_Rock is a sub label of Bedrock, set up by John Digweed with a view to promote artists whose musical fascinations transgress the boundaries of electronic dance music. Luke Branaccio and Bruce Aisher, chosen as the first producers to be released on the label, combine in their “Electric Mistress” album electronic music and rock. The result is amazing. It’s a crossover sound with diverse compelling vibes. I didn’t want to stop listening even for a while. 2 20 Girl has to be my favorite song on the album. I discovered it after hearing many remixes of the song on John Digweed’s KISS100 show.

Blue Foundation

After two years of composing, recording and experiment in a 3m x 4m top-floor atelier in Vesterbro, Blue Foundation have whittled down more than 30 pieces into their second album (out on Virgin on 02.02.04), the 11-track ‘Sweep of Days’. As with the critically acclaimed first album, the Danish members of the band, Tobi, Kir and Bo, have once again combined their instrumental, vocal and programming talents with the London-based Japanese turntable maestro DJ Tatsuki, and with the English lyricist and performer MC Jabber.

The Essential Mix

June 5, 2007

essential mix

The world’s best djs on the world’s best turntables, The Essential Mix quickly established a strong reputation within the dance music community and has gained prestige both in the UK and internationally. Although Eddie Gordon originally had his work cut out attracting big names to the programme due to their busy DJ schedules but armed with determination and a broad knowledge of the big name DJs dance music styles plus the hugely successful live Essential Mix Shows the list of performers now essentially reads as a “who’s who of dance music”. The shows success can perhaps be partly attributed to Radio 1’s unique ability to offer DJs the chance to play a relatively long set on radio uninterrupted by advertisements, something which cannot be matched by the BBC’s commercial rivals (the BBC is funded through TV Licensing). The absence of any kind of interruption in music has led to the show being touted as a “two hour musical journey” rather than as simply an assortment of records. The show has been used as a platform for artists to showcase their talents, and for some is seen as a major boost to their careers.

Late Night Alumni

November 15, 2006


The Late Night Alumni project came about when Finn heard Becky sing on a local Salt Lake City Christmas compilation and, impressed by what he heard, tracked her down to provide some vocals on a song he had recently written. After working on a couple songs together, they realized something special was happening. The combination of Finn’s dreamy yet solid production and Becky’s soft and sensual vocals seemed to be a match made in heaven. Seeing where the music was heading, Finn and Becky brought John into the fold to offer his expertise in strings, which served to give the tracks the lift and texture they needed. Ryan (probably the best known member of the collective, due primarily to his DJing and highly respected work, alongside his co-producer Finn, under the Kaskade guise) proved to be the final piece of the puzzle, with his years of acclaimed beat making providing the innovation that brings all the elements of the album together in fine style.
