Experimental Moog mastermind Stark Sound Lab releases ‘Wally’s Woes’ single

Stark Sound Lab has released his newest electronica single, “Wally’s Woes.” The track is the tenth official release to come from Canada’s Stark Records independent music label. Marked by driving percussion, fugue-like chord progressions and SSL’s inimitable Moog melodies, “Wally’s Woes” proves Stark Sound Lab to be among the most inventive electronica artists for 2017.

In the past Stark Sound Lab has cited as inspirations such legends as Vangelis, Kraftwerk, Hans Zimmer, Brian Eno, and Keith Emerson – Emerson being ever-present in “Wally’s Woes” – but SSL insists that music artists are not the source from which their latest track has sprung.

“In the case of ‘Wally’s Woes,’ there were no outside musical influences, just a gut-wrenching emotional reaction,” writes Stark Sound Lab. “Wally’s Woes is a very emotional song that was written, performed and recorded while our mascot, Wally (four-year-old Boston Terrier) was in hospital fighting for his life after being poisoned.”

The track was recorded live using vintage, highly prized Moog keyboards: a System 55, a Voyager and a Model 15, each of which instruments boasts its own fan club around the world. It was dedicated to Wally the dog at Stark Records’ website while he was still suffering from his illness.

“Wally is a shining star at Stark Sound Lab, barking at delivery vans and welcoming visitors,” writes Stark Sound Lab. “Our hearts sank knowing he might not return to us. So we did everything we could, got him the best veterinarian, prayed, and wrote music in his honour.”

It has been surmised that poisoned dog treats had been left on the sidewalk in a random act of malice. Thanks to Stark Sound Lab – and an excellent vet – this black intent has had the opposite effect of giving enjoyment to music lovers everywhere in the form of this raw, powerfully evocative, electronic prog-pop single, “Wally’s Woes.”

And after all, there is a happy ending.

“Our prayers were answered when Wally was able to leave hospital and join us once again. It was truly a Christmas Miracle that Wally survived and is now with us again watching over Stark Sound Lab.”

“Wally’s Woes” is available online worldwide from over 700 quality digital music outlets now. Get in early.

2R3D releases new electronic dance single “Escape” feat. Collin Morgenstern

The composer and producer of digital dance music known as 2R3D has released his new single, “Escape.” The track has been published as an independent release without the support or direction of the corporate music industry. In addition to the already considerable skills of 2R3D himself, “Escape” features the talents of Collin Morgenstern. Part ambient, part trance, part dance pop and with still more elements of electronica and EDM sewn into it, “Escape” is easily one of the most creative and unique singles to arrive for the winter 2015 season.

2R3D’s “Escape” has been billed under various music genres, mainly indie dance and the relatively fresh nu disco category, but it will appeal to a much larger variety of music fans than only these. The track weighs in at a cool 90 bpm, less than 20 fewer than the average EDM single sold on Beatport, making it a relaxing single with an upbeat edge that manages to be surprisingly danceable in spite of its mellowness.

Nevertheless, many audiophiles are sure to appreciate 2R3D’s “Escape” for its fascinating scope in terms of sonic texture and depth of tone. True to the artist’s name, “Escape” is very three-dimensional and can be as immersive as the listener prefers to enjoy it. On the surface, excellently executed and innovative vocals are more than enough to hold one’s attention for the duration of the single, but should one choose to listen beneath these, there are also waves, undercurrents and still subtler sounds moving down there, and these, too, can take the listener to seemingly countless faraway places, making the song’s title likewise very apt.

2R3D was born and raised in Colorado. At 18 years old he is already a performing DJ of electronica and digital music with live shows at more than 20 venues under his belt, a number to which he is steadily adding. An avid student of music and sound, 2R3D is currently attending the Art of Audio recording school in Denver, CO, where he will graduate with degrees in electronic music production, music business, and audio engineering.

“Escape” by 2R3D feat. Collin Morgenstern is available online worldwide. Fans of nu disco, indie dance and electronic music shouldn’t miss it.
