JULIAN DeMARRE – “STATE OF FLUX”
A Spill Exclusive Music Premiere
Julian DeMarre’s album Electric Child is atmospheric electronic music with the weight of tape machines and synths from the 70s, perfect for cold winter nights.
“The subconscious is a powerful thing. You start making tracks and end up somewhere unexpected, those were beasts with their own will. I didn’t make anything, i just caught them at full moon.
They all sound different from each other, as if they belong on separate compilations. Some of them became political, some quite controversial. Is that a normal thing for ambient electronic tracks ? I guess not.” After recording and touring with german electronic pioneers Camouflage Julian has scored several critically acclaimed indie movies, such as the cult hit “Street Thief” and 2016 New York Times critic’s pick “Cash Only”.
On Electric Child DeMarre records a retrospective diary of abstract electronic tracks, looking back and into the future at the same time. While the album deals with growing up in a society with the unstoppable need to reinvent itself, several tracks have controversial references (Finland, Disco Nnect, State Of Flux). Johan & Vedder’s video for ‘State Of Flux’ contain fascinating imagery from the forbidden zone in Fukushima Prefecture. Co-produced with Dan Powell (Soniccouture) the album features contributions from Heiko Maile (Camouflage), Michael Saup (Supreme Particle) and renowned percussionist Tom Saup. Longtime collaborator Malik Bader, who founded FreakMode records with DJ Deeon in Chicago will be using music from Electric Child to score his next film — a noir thriller shooting in Brazil and Africa.
“Making tracks for Electric Child was weird. Those were beasts with their own will. I didn’t make anything, i just caught them at full moon.”
