Very happy to announce my track Badb is featured on the Deimos EP out on vinyl on the Barcelona-based label Urban Legend Records.
In Greek mythology, Deimos is the personification of fear and panic in battles, and twin brother of Phobos who represented fear. Together, they accompanied the god of war in every fight. Two dark and perhaps not very pleasant characters but perfect to represent the series that would be completed with this EP and with which Urban Legend starts a new cycle with more strength than ever.
It’s taken 6 years for Phobos to meet Deimos musically. We believe that it couldn’t have been a more representative moment of what we needed to express due to the uncertainty and confusion we are living. With this work, we explore the somber feelings and existential conflicts that take hold of us in these difficult times, sometimes in contrast with the need for struggle and survival.
Four enfolding tracks by LAIR and Wará, full of shadows and dark voices, will take you on an inner journey to the deepest within you, represented this time by the powerful remixes full of demonic rhythms and underworld atmospheres of Sam KDC and NX1 who, together with the twin brothers, will accompany other terrible demons in their eagerness to drive you mad and, why not, to save you.

All the tracks are influenced by and include bat sounds, with funds from the release going to support Bat Conservation Trust.
“Adaptive Sonic has assembled international talent to join forces with the Bat Conservation Trust for a fundraising effort dedicated to the preservation of our nocturnal friends.
Bats are a vital part of our native wildlife, accounting for almost a third of all mammal species in the UK and occupy a wide range of habitats, such as wetlands, woodlands, farmland, as well as urban areas. They can tell us a lot about the state of the environment, as they are top predators of common nocturnal insects and are sensitive to changes in land use practices. The pressures they face – such as landscape change, agricultural intensification, development, and habitat fragmentation are also relevant to many other wildlife species, making them excellent indicators for the wider health of global wildlife.”
Loads of awesome tracks on this, my current favourite being the compilation’s opener from Hauntist

The fifth piece in my series of Full Moon collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and human Adam Perry
My contribution to our collab this month is called “What will you choose?”
Inspired by the current cycle we are in, it feels that we’ve all been here before and will be again depending on how we choose to move forward…
Our collective is made up of each individual choosing how they are going to behave in the world. This month, I feel it is vital for us all to ask within, what will you choose?!

“Sink into the sound
And move toward light”
You may have noticed my tracks often have silence at the beginning and/or end of them. This is intentional- the silences are just as much a part of the piece as the ‘noise’ 🙏

I was deeply moved by this artwork ‘She reveals her power to save her loved ones’ when Adam sent it to me. I tuned in to the picture for a segment of a sound bath I recorded and Adam has put this to a time lapse of him creating his stunning piece which you can watch here:
Adam writes: “The scene is 16th century England at the peak of the witch trials, a young woman is being hidden by loved ones from authorities as many of those trials lead to their execution; but she chooses to reveal herself and her powers as she does not want those caring for her to be seen as an accessory to her ‘heresy’ under the medieval religious beliefs and laws of the time.”
I felt a profound sadness, overwhelm and just depth of emotion when I tuned into the artwork and I think perhaps you’ll be able to feel some of that emotion through my piece “In Light Divine” which accompanies the art in our New Moon video.
