A multi-talented producer, DJ and audio software developer from Seattle, Joel Pryde is one of the few artists that creates the tools on which he plays. About a year ago he developed traxPad, one of the only multi-touch DJ applications, which is currently used by many DJs in Seattle and around the world. Joel Pryde returns with his second basic_sounds release, Kalimotxo.
Joel Pryde’s opening track, Take Apart delivers a sophisticated balance between trance and techno. He starts out slow, unleashing a gradual build of dark synths, hand claps and driving swooshes that are engineered to perfection and ideal for creating that epic brooding big-room tension. Motxo is a sci-fi tinged, retro-futuristic slower-paced acid journey incorporating swirling ambient details and spongy shuffle base rhythms. Kali closes the EP with a dirty chunky groove including looping vocals and wet quirky reverbs for the ultimate jacking dancefloor track.
