Soundscape Magazine is pleased to bring you the exclusive premiere of the Ventenner remix of Synthetic by London-based dark electro band Dicepeople!
Charlie Dawe of Ventenner commented on the remix:
“My goal with any remix is to take it in a completely new direction, a real curve ball tangent, but at the same time maintain the feel and integrity of the original song. This project was particularly tricky as I had to abandon my own style and familiar bag of tricks and focus more on the electronic side of things, employing more synth parts and an artificial feel. I had to put down the guitar and feel out some techniques I hadn’t used since the early industrial days of Ventenner.”
Dicepeople will be releasing their EP Synthetic on February 6th. Founded by musician and producer of the band Matt Brock, Dicepeople set out to incorporate a wide range of influences from electronica and darkwave to post-rock. Their shows have a significant visual emphasis, with cinematic projections and intense lighting from visual artist Rafael Filomeno creating an immersive experience. Atashi Tada rounds off the line up with her powerful yet other-wordly vocals.
Dicepeople have been going strong since 2013, and with several albums under their belt this new four-track EP based around the dark synthpop single Synthetic is set to expand their sound even more, with remixes included from Ventenner and Little Death Machine.
