Having released two big boshy dance albums, I wanted to do something a bit more conceptual with my latest release. Over the last few years, I’ve become quite enamoured with the world of Steampunk, the idea of recapturing ~Victorian inventiveness and progressivism and the associated optimism that goes with it. The general aesthetic is awesome and it has been fairly well explored visually… sonically much less so. There have been some great examples of Steampunk music but I wanted to come at it from a slightly different perspective. On the the other hand, Cyberpunk was a major part of my world growing up. It taught me that the future will probably be a dark and dystopian place but at least the clubbing is going to be awesome: laser laden post-apocalyptic dens of inquity with intense electro pounding all night and day long. I wondered what music from the boundary layer between these two realities might sound like (music from the portal perhaps).

Steampunk Cybercrunk EP is my musical journey into both of these worlds and the spaces in between. The tracks themselves are quite varied, reflecting the different ways that these two genres could intermingle. Beep Beep Baby is an uplifting electo-swing banger (possibly counting more as dieselpunk than steampunk but I’ve never been a fan of over defining genres). Remember me is a deep dubstep inspired track with a hint of the classic horror film with its ethereal piano part. Harpsix is a big dancy tune with a bombastic harpsichord riffing against some classic electronic arpeggios. Finally, Waltzing with the devil is a slow English waltz reimagined with an electro slant. I really enjoyed making the whole EP. I hope you enjoy listening to it too.

Out on the 23rd of February 2015

I’m very excited to announce that my new EP, Steampunk Cybercrunk comes out on the 23rd of February 2015 in all good digital music stores. Expect a 20 minute leftfield journey into instrumental EDM with elements of electro-swing, funky house and dubstep. There’s even an electro-waltz (not too many of those around, I’m sure).  Stay tuned for more news as the day approaches

Hey there,

As I’ve mentioned before I haven’t had much time for blogging recently as I’ve been getting my new album mixed and mastered up.

Well its all ready and submitted, with just over a month to go until release. If you can barely wait that long then fear not as you can preorder on Amazon, trackitdown and 7digital (more to follow)

In the meantime expect more album news, offers and vids coming up

Love and Peace, D

Album progress report

I’ve got a draft tracklist together for my upcoming album. Inevitably its taking longer than expected with all the housekeeping jobs for each track. Once that’s done I’ve only got to worry about mastering all of them together, doing the album art, oh and coming up with a name for the whole thing.

Anyway, its always good to make progress, it looks like its going to end up being a late 2011, early 2012 release. In all fairness, probably early 2012 to avoid all the bull that comes out in the run up to Christmas. I’ll be sure to keep you posted

Love and Peace

Yes the day has finally arrived. A week before it goes on general release, you can hear my debut album – The Vibe Electric right here on dataphilesmusic.com. Also as promised, you can download a free standard quality version for a limited period, so be quick.

The free stream will be on the download page forever though … because everyone deserves music

Love and Peace

I’ve finished mastering my album and preparing it for upload, ready for a mid-late August release. It’ll be available for free on the download page for a limited period before it goes on general release at you favourite digital retailer. So check back here and you can get it gratis 🙂

In the meantime I’ll be working on some new tracks and mastering some of my old ones (from when I started Dataphiles) so there will always be free music on the upload page for you to enjoy.

Love and Peace
