Satl Announces Debut Album ‘Gloom’
By Akshay Bhanawat – November 18, 2022 0
Polish artist Satl is one of the most diverse and prolific artists to break through in the Drum & Bass realm in the last decade.
After a multitude of music on Amsterdam label The North Quarter he is now set to release his most ambitious and eclectic project: ‘Gloom’.
This is a project that sees a more mature artist, one that has developed and refined his sound. In what is a clear departure from his previous material, Satl has managed to craft his own exciting take on dark electronic music taking influences from UK Bass music, Techno and beyond.
“I never wanted to be boxed in to one style/genre, but I think I just wasn’t brave enough as an artist to really push this agenda forward until now,” Satl explains. “I think this collection represents where I am at the moment, a ‘new me’, and I’m definitely planning to stay here for a little while, while always looking to the future.” ‘Gloom’ has been a mostly solitary creative undertaking for Satl, who explored the boundaries of his Waldorf Blofeld, Elektron Digitakt, FL Studio, Reason, VCV Rack and a handful of plugins over the course of about two years. The album is entirely produced by him and sees just a handful of vocal collaborators: Tru Thought’s own Rhi, New York’s Frank Carter III and L.A.-based vocalist Saigo.
A coming-of-age project, ‘Gloom’ is the end product of Satl honing his craft and exploring the limits of his own creativity.
‘Gloom’ will be released November 18th on The North Quarter.
