In need of something ambient to begin the day? Well, you’ve come to the right place with this post of Dom Sith, aka Dom Smith’s, latest track ‘Mono’.
You may know Sith as the drummer for Mary and the Ram and The Parasitic Twins, but in his spare time he has continued to experiment with electronic beats and sounds, and ‘Mono’ (which you can purchase now right here) is his latest creation.
The song is a dark, lo-fi offering that recalls the very best of 1990s trip-hop, which may remind you of genre-defining artists such as Portishead and Tricky.
With the pending May 24th release of ‘Mono’ out through the recently resurrected Yorkshire alternative electronic music label The New Anonymous, Sith is looking to inspire others with his latest collection of beats and samples. Commented Sith, “I just want to make electronic music, man. I forever wanted to be like Trent Reznor, or Chris Corner (IAMX), so I got some software and just started tinkering a few years back, just trying to make really unsettling sounds. I’ve done a few releases now, and they’re pretty lo-fi and dark, but if I can make music that I genuinely love, then I want others to know that they can too.”
Hull, UK based soundtrack and minimal electronic composer, Dom Sith (otherwise known as Dom Smith of Mary And The Ram, Seep Away and The Parasitic Twins) returns with a new video game-style track that’s heavily influenced by cyberpunk culture. He comments: “Man, I’ve always loved the culture of cyberpunk, and I wanted to build something that could soundtrack someone’s emotions if they were either playing, or inside this video game…in my head! Ha!”
Featuring lighter chiptune elements that move away from Sith’s darker sound, this represents a move towards more peaceful sonic exploration. “I’m not a vocalist, I’ve made peace with that now, I mean…I do miserable spoken word bollocks from time-to-time, but that’s about it. I want to focus my energy on soundtrack stuff that makes people chill out, and get them to imagine, if only for a moment that they are in another world.”
