Story & Production

I’ve been making music for more than 10 years. Simulakron is a collaboration with David Isen ( guitarist from Horse The Band ). He recorded guitars and I made electronics and mixing. We spent about 6-15 months on this album.

The concept was 70’s sci-fi movies. The story, the samples, titles and everything else had to fit to this idea. The artist ( Dimitry Skolzki ) made the cover art in 70’s manner.

Listen

To reach the right sound I used a lot of analog synths. A couple of MFBs, Moog Modular clone, some analog delays and other analog effects. As a drums I used 808, 909 and some other retro drum machines. Besides that I used a lot of analog emulation effects while mixing.

Video

I made a music video for one of the songs. I used some cuts from 70's sci-fi movies.
