Renowned music producer and bass enthusiast Axel Thesleff is on a roll with his memorable sound fusions. His latest performance at the Dolni Vitkovice in the historic Czech Republic proves to be as out of this world as we imagined. This is also a good indication that his sound can and will differ between each new release, and we cannot be more delighted to hear what Axel reveals to us next. In the meantime, we are appreciative of this visual experience that is bursting with vibrant electronic textures.
In an interview with Bass Music, the producer was asked about how he crafts his unique sound, to which he elaborated: “I’m always merging sounds, styles and cultures to create something new. In this track, I’m taking harmonic principles from western classical music and merging that with Ben Parag’s traditional Indian singing. The drop parts of the track alternate between a house beat and a trap/future beat. It’s through fusion like this where I often find the most interesting ideas.”
Inspired by a diverse range of acts including Sigur Ros, Aphex Twin and Gold Panda, it makes a lot of sense as to why this act is a delightfully eccentric mix of soundwaves. To date, this Finnish producer’s music has been streamed over a whopping one billion times via leading platforms. After emerging ourselves into this transcending audio and visual experience, we look forward to seeing what Thesleff has up his sleeve for the weeks to follow.
