Now this is an exclusive from more than promising Los Angeles based recording artist, creating electronica & alt-pop music, DAMYN. As the artist describes (couldn’t find better words!), ‘This Now‘ is a tremendous “industrial, apocalyptic EDM” tune, clocking around 3,5 minutes, but concise enough for a full album! The production is astonishingly solid, and we simply cannot wait til his debut album. But, until then… this “beast”!
‘This Now‘ is an instrumental track from my upcoming album, The Dark Corners. I would describe this track as industrial, apocalyptic EDM. This fits well with its particular spot in the journey of the album.
It marks a thematic turning point in that journey. I felt that an instrumental piece was necessary to make that turning point work, because I believe that an instrumental piece can have a more extreme emotional progression. This is because the mental stuff slows down the cathartic process and the overall evolution of feelings. When there are no words, there is no conceptual content – only pure energy and feeling.
The second half of the album explores new themes and comes from a very different sort of state of consciousness. So to arrive there, an instrumental track was the necessary choice. This is the first instrumental EDM track I’ve recorded and I must say it came out just as I hoped.
DAMYN took an unconventional path to Indie Pop music. In 2009 he went on a vision quest to Madagascar, into the jagged limestone structure known as the Tsingy de Bemaraha. From this experience, he received clarity about the deep importance and power of music and his specific purpose with it.
Fulfilling this purpose would require an in depth education. That pursuit earned him a Masters of Music in Composition. DAMYN chose to apply the tools thus gained to making music in the world of Indie/Pop.
Having honed his craft and his message over this long period of development, DAMYN is set to finish his debut album, The Dark Corners, in the Fall of 2018.
He is based out of Los Angeles.
DAMYN has been compared to: David Bowie, Muse, Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails.
