Arthur Oskan

Arthur Oskan interviewed in Exclaim, called "undeniably excellent" by Resident Advisor

Canada's national music magazine has given Oskan's latest release a superb review. Exclaim described "A Little More Than Everything" (Thoughtless) as an "irresistibly danceable…solid techno album", and chatted with the artist about his involvement in the Detroit scene, his perspective on Toronto techno, MUTEK, and more. Check it out.

Oskan also picked up a 4/5 rating from Resident Advisor, along with some fine words about his Decibel Palace "Auracle Sessions" collections: "20-odd tracks of deeply atmospheric music that ranged from twisted acid house to downtempo and broken-beat Boards of Canada-esque electronica."

Nice.

Spiral Into The Storm: UK Radio Session > In Dub

Spiral Into The Storm hits the Top 5 on eMusic

September 2010 was a fantastic time for Spiral Into The Storm's latest release.

The new EP launched at eMusic in August with a free track, and almost immediately began shooting toward the top of three — count 'em, three! — Electronic genre charts (Breaks, Downtempo and Electronic Ambient).

September saw even more listeners grab the EP: it held the #2 spot on the Breaks chart throughout the month, and landed at #5 on the Downtempo chart.

Wait! There's more…

  • Check out Spiral's "Dub Trawler" in a mix of 18 electronically-inclined artists on edition 45 of the Robo Cast Radio podcast
  • Show some love to electronic music veteran Andrew Duke for featuring the EP on his October 2010 chart

Spiral Into The Storm featured in-session
on Dandelion Radio

Airing everyday during July, 2010

Spiral Into The Storm has just wrapped up an exclusive 20-minute session for the UK's Dandelion Radio.

The seamlessly-mixed set features three reworked items from Spiral's A Futile Veneer album, plus a new ambient piece entitled Requiem For A River (In Dub).

Will of Spiral Into The Storm: "I took this as an opportunity to revisit some tracks which, to my mind, were begging to be remixed. For quite a while, I'd been wanting to really bring forward the dub aspect of my recordings, and this session was ideal for that. I took great pleasure in dismantling and reconfiguring the original tracks, and then running them through what I like to call the 'dub prism'!

Hopefully, listeners will find themselves on a bit of a journey when they hear this set."

Check out DJ Andrew Morrison's show beginning July 1, 2010 (and repeating everyday thereafter) to catch this broadcast.

And for those that miss it, the entire session will appear as an EP entitled UK Radio Session > In Dub.

Grab a free download from that release at our BandCamp store.

Spiral Into The Storm remixes Friendly Fires

We're a bit tardy in gossiping about this, here at the dBP water cooler, but Spiral Into The Storm's recent remix of Friendly Fires' "Kiss Of Life" received a number of great reviews in late 2009.


"Spiral Into The Storm bathes slinky synths in acid, dissolves vocals into halos of breath and light, and nudges quick flourishes from the source material into motifs. It's a pretty extensive overhaul... To SITS's credit, those nine minutes feel pretty action-packed..."
Pitchfork

"Quite frankly, it's one of the better remixes I've heard this year... Very very very good eclectic remix..."
Sundrak

"...keeps you reeled in the whole time."
Trials & Tribulations

"If we weren’t already thoroughly impressed by Luke Solomon's giant 8 minute dreamy disco version of Friendly Fires "Kiss Of Life", Spiral Into The Storm has upped it again with an equally dominating and literal representation. Holding a bit more rumble and thunder than Luke's, Spiral offers up a palatable guitar riff driven version in a monster sized 9 minutes."
Stoney Roads

"Will has taken it upon himself to take this smashing single and turn it on its side, give it a smackdown and add some kick in the pants."
The Boy With The Thorn In His Side

"The original is a "must have" and this remix is a horizon expander."
Aeriomax

"...a monstrous 9 minutes..."
Britpop.com.au

"Solid."
Hot Biscuits


And the remix continues its journey in 2010, with Kissy Sell Out adding flourishes, and airing it on BBC1 as a "Kissy Klub version".

Spiral Into The Storm

New Spiral Into The Storm album, A Futile Veneer,
set for October 14, 2008 release

Continuing his work under the Spiral Into The Storm moniker, Will Skol is set to follow up last year's debut mini-album. Three tracks from that release have seen some touch-ups on the mixing desk, while "D-Town Rockers" has been totally reworked to a thunderously hypnotic effect (get the mp3).

Eight brand new cuts will also appear on the disc, with another stellar vocal cameo by Julie Mahendran, and a guest spot on drums and percussion from Groove Armada session man Giampaolo Scatozza.

Rounding out this 12-track set will be an infectiously funked-out remix courtesy of Gibbs And Mellen (Toronto's Mike Gibbs and Gaz Mellen).

From gritty synthetic breaks to blissed-out vistas, Spiral's upcoming 75 minute voyage is not to be missed.

UPDATE: The album has already received a glowing advance review from Canada's Fazer magazine.
