Solarstone’s collaboration with modular synth wizard 'Dreams of Wires'

Drawn from the arsenal of Electronic Architecture Vol. 4, this is Solarstone’s collaboration with modular synth wizard Wayne Taylor. Created from a modular synth demonstration by Dreams of Wires. Kicked off with Electro breaks and murky synths, ‘Equilibrium’ drives home an evolving and hypnotizing motif with rolling bass, spring reverb splashes, retro 606 percussion, swelling pads & acidic undertones.

'Rediscover' the new Young Parisians single.

Young Parisians is a side project I last used 14 years ago. I decided to resurrect it as a home for this low bpm progressive, melodic groove featuring this fabulous vocal from the wonderful Katherine Amy. It’s a defiantly optimistic record, best served with sunshine.

Not quite a remix, but more than an edit.

The acclaimed Electronic Architecture 4 compilation features 12 of Solarstone’s ‘Reconstructions’. Not quite a remix, but more than an edit – the ‘deep mixing’ of the EA series involves layering of individual stems from component tracks, often resulting in something quite different from the Artists’ original vision of the piece – a standalone revision. This EP features two – a tempo & energy raising of Super-Frog Saves Tokyo’s momentous modular crafted ‘Kyoto’ and a re-carving of the sumptuously melodic & airy ‘Bright Star’ from ZOYA.

Dreamtime is but a click away - Kryder’s killer ‘When I Dream’ remix arrives today.

Fast into the single slipstream of Solarstone’s ‘island’ album last year fell the positively cyanic ‘When I Dream’. As summer summoning as they come, its glide into the blue was a tonic for all those starved of a trip to the Isle itself.

As hot-season dawns once again – by proxy of an astonishingly fine remix from man of the moment Kryder, Solarstone makes a timely return to the track.

After Jam El Mar’s beefing up ‘island’s ‘Restless 4.a.m.’ last month, Kryder’s swung the remix needle in the other direction. He’s dropped ‘When I Dream’ into an even deeper REM state, and one where its carry-you-away Balearic visions can become even more vivid and pulsing.

Tempo lowered, Kryder hardwires rolling bass undulation into its looping, engaging ever-evolving main melody. Hovering its detuned pianoforte evocatively in the midrange, through hypnotic tom-tom percussion he brings greater yet focus to its groove. Spilling the mix over from trance into progressive, his weave of beach ether, bass throb, FX drift and heat-hazed piano all meet on one sensationally moment-capturing remix.

Solarstone and Orkidea’s latest ‘Slowmotion’ strike receives its singles pin today.

Serializing singles have been a part of the electronic music landscape since Dave Clarke’s started adding numbers to his legendary ‘Red’ releases. There’s never been a sequence quite as enduringly and era-reflecting as Solarstone and Orkidea’s ‘Slowmotion’ series though. Essentially a musical testament to an evolving relationship between the two artists, it has waymarked their shared (and now decade-long) musical unity.

May sees the arrival of not just their latest coming-together, but also one of the most pivotal moments in Solarstone’s just-released 4th ‘Electronic Architecture’.

Naturally each ‘Slowmotion’ is its own entity, but the series is bound together – not just by numerals – but also an overarching tone and feel. That’s something that Richard & Tapio again lock into the earliest moments of ‘Slowmotion’s sixth, and never stop developing throughout.
Using a midtempo pace, they power it with a bass-led progressive roll, generating a Morodor-like neo-disco groove for the track. Firing cinematically spacey 80s FX through a modern day prism, the duo reinterpret them retro-futuristically, building the track up to its epically galactic conclusion.

Solarstone and Orkidea’s latest ‘Slowmotion’ strike receives its singles pin today. Find it through all good sales and streaming platforms now.

Tracklist:

01. Solarstone & Orkidea – Slowmotion VI (Extended Mix)
02. Solarstone & Orkidea – Slowmotion VI (Original Mix)


Solarstone 'Nails' it with his remix for Hybrid.

Second single from electronic heavy hitters Hybrid’s forthcoming (sixth) studio album, and ‘Nails’ see’s the duo stray into propulsive 4/4 territory.

Charlotte Truman’s seemingly effortless delivery of an arena sized song is matched by co partner Mike’s steady unfurling of sonic pyrotechnics throughout as ‘Nails’ builds to a pounding, but never overstated climax, full of melody, scale and ambition.

On the remix front, Solarstone keeps the song structure in place, and melodies to the fore, but adds precision engineered rhythms and swelling builds for maximum summer dancefloor impact.

Solarstone - Restless 4 a.m. (Parametrik Mix)

You may wonder who is behind the ‘Parametrik Mix’ of ‘Restless 4 A.M.’ … well it’s actually me… it’s not a new alias by the way – but I wanted to do a deeper, & more forceful / club-friendly version of the track which explored the ‘techno’ vibe of the original further, and the name ‘Parametrik’ just kind of popped into my head.
