The French DJ known around the world as DJ Pad has published his new full-length album, “Welcome Aboard.” Like Pad’s previous releases, “Welcome Aboard” has been published independently on the 4000 Records label without the support of the corporate music industry. Also like earlier records from DJ Pad, “Welcome Aboard” boasts no fewer than 20 original titles for a grand total of over 100 minutes’ worth of digital music, nearly three times the amount which denotes a full-length LP album.
A spectacularly creative EDM record with elements of house, deep house, post-trance, jungle, gabber, old-school techno and even a dash of rock ‘n’ roll, “Welcome Aboard” is perhaps the most inclusive and impressive album from Pad yet.
Since his first appearance on the global digital music stage in spring of 2014, DJ Pad has gained a reputation for being the most prolific composer of EDM currently producing music in France (perhaps in Europe overall and conceivably even across the entire world). With a rapidly growing repertoire that will almost certainly consist of more than 700 original songs by summer of 2016, “Welcome Aboard” is another milestone which proves that DJ Pad can create high-quality music at a rate far surpassing that of any other internationally known digital musician.
DJ Pad’s albums change radically from one to the next, each having its own character and intended subgenre of electronic music. Pad has at one time or another cited as main musical inspirations such artists as ATB, Tiesto, Armin van Buren, Afrojack, Sebastian, Swedish House Mafia, Infected Mushrooms, Psycraft, Hallucinogen, Cosmic Gate, Atomic Cat, Angerfist, Hanz Zimmer, Mike Oldfield, and a great many more. He has been crafting his iconic brand of EDM since 2008 and shows no sign of slowing his remarkable creative pace.
The ability to write music across many categories is a rare talent. For DJ Pad, his musical skill extends even beyond digital music altogether, and in fact his creative roots are in traditional playing. He is an accomplished accordionist with nearly 20 years’ experience.
A man of few words, DJ Pad has been quoted as saying he makes music to “share the craziness and the happiness of the songs’ beats, making listeners have a sudden urge to move their feet and forget all the worries of life.”
With more than 50 hours of music by DJ Pad since he began making digital music, the sonic world wouldn’t be the same without him.
“Welcome Aboard” by DJ Pad is available online worldwide from 4000 Records. Go get a taste.
