I am very proud to remix my friend Colin’s AKA Slighter newest release available on System Recordings. The original is brooding piece of electronic music that yet filled with hope. I wanted to go for a chilled out vibe with a almost dubstep like tempo. I am very happy with the results. The release is now available on Beatport, iTunes and other online retailers. Take a listen below to the Reef Project remix. Hope you enjoy.
Released today is the fifth Reef Project album, entitled “Aquaculture” on System Recordings. I always wanted to create an entirely beatless ambient release. When I started getting into ambient music in the early 90’s, I always found myself drawn to albums like Brian Eno’s – “Music For Airports” and works from Robert Rich and Steve Roach. I found myself loving how this style of music can be so relaxing at one moment and cause such tension in another. When I started producing under Reef Project in the early 2000’s I always included ambient pieces in all of my work, but it was always interlaced with various forms of IDM styled tracks and downtempo.
I have had the idea to do a completely ambient album for a time now and started working on it in the beginning of 2011. Then it was put on pause as I focused on other things but I came back to it early this year and the music just flowed. This release was originally supposed to be just a 4 to 5 track EP, but it quickly grew as I kept writing. In 2 months I finished up 8 tracks that now compose, “Aquaculture”.
These tracks are very personal to me. They are the sounds of my waking dreams and they are soundtracks I listen to as I put my head down to sleep. I hope this album finds a home in your ears as well. Please take the time to slow down, put this album on and just breathe. I hope you enjoy it.
