NYC’s William B debuts with Strobe, an ultra-dark 3-track techno EP that begs late night play. Functional rhythms flirt with experimental inclinations in a sprawling three track collection that makes for essential winter-time listening. Eponymous “Strobe” sets the tone with dark textures, while “Work” brings house-style vocal samples to hard-hitting techno rhythm, before “I Like It” sprawls to a six-minute crescendo. Equal parts a listening experience and vibrant, soulful techno for the discerning DJ. Out now on all platforms via Afterwave Records.
“The Strobe EP is about coming together and celebrating each others’ differences. In a world where there are many forces that pull us apart, Strobe is a sonic beacon of hope that can unite different walks of life together in a peaceful environment. No matter your age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or political views, Strobe is for you. The Strobe EP is sonic therapy for the soul and its house of worship is the dancefloor.
The Strobe EP was created with love using 808 and 909 drum machines, modular synthesizers, and original vocals from myself, my girlfriend and my dog Diamond. Techniques of additive, subtractive and granular synthesis were applied during the creation of the EP and can be heard throughout. All sounds were created with either hardware or a living being.”
