Two years after “The Xenogamous Endeavour”, I’m back with a new album “Seven Sorrows, Seven Stars” – a journey that started after drawing inspiration from the 2014 movie “Interstellar”. The album will take you through the varied landscape of electronic music, from triphop filled with lush pads and warm vocals from the likes of Ellia Bisker (of jazz band Sweet Soubrette), Kyoko Baertsoen (Lunascape, ex-Hooverphonic) driven by deep basslines and electroacoustic drumkits – as well as introduce ambient moments, with poetry and electronic ballads with vocals of Pieter Van Vaerenbergh (Metafuzz, Zelon) and Diana S. (Junksista). Synthpop, both introspective and soul searching with emotional vocal performances of David Chamberlin (Entrzelle) and Mari Kattman, to the more powerful kind with nods to harder dancy synthpop, electroclash with powerful vocal passages of Roeland van der Velde (Model Depose), singer/songwriter Alvin River, Andrew Galucki, Bernard Feron (Combat Voice) and Addie Nicole (Halocene). Breakbeat lovers and acid fans will also be treated with a melange of both hard hitting psytrance influenced moments mixed with electroclash and the vocals of both Miss FD and Fallon Nieves. But listen and judge for yourself on our soundcloud page (soundcloud.com/psyaviah), or on the album’s bandcamp page, where we offer all tracks in full preview / streaming.
We live in a world where we sample music and, but I urge you to at least once listen to the album from the first to the last track. As the tracklist is specifically balanced and chosen to offer you this rollercoaster of sounds, emotions, energy and soul – a varied mix of electronic music, but with the typical Psy’Aviah touch I always give to the songs. Written & produced at my homestudio in Antwerp, mixed by Mitia Wexler (at wxlr.mx studios) and mastered by Geert de Wilde (at the IC 434 / Skyshifter studio). Out now, on April 15th, worldwise via Alfa Matrix records on all major digital platforms (such as Apple Music / iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, etc..), online cd stores (ECI, bol.com, elektronaut, FNAC, MediaMarkt, etc…) and your local record stores (if not there, just ask at the counter).
