Pixelanddigital is the musical moniker of a multi-talented emerging digital artist and music producer. The multifaceted creator debuted the project this summer with the rapid-fire release of five EPs of original genre-bending electronic music. Those records introduced a talented electronic recording artist with sound inspired by years of musical experimentation.
Early on, Pixelanddigital found inspiration in the sometimes avant-garde world of electronic music pioneers like Aphex Twin, Kraftwerk, and Daft Punk. In recent years, the composer has developed a unique sound influenced by a wide range of genres from IDM to dubstep, techno, and ambient. Their latest throws a heavy dose of classic retro-synths into the mix. The five-song set is a fun ride through decades of electronic dance music, filtered through a classic analog synth lens.
Lunar Loops is the brand new EP from Pixelanddigital, released worldwide via all major streaming services on August 19, 2023. The record opens with a pair of cinematic synthwave instrumentals, with the early Depeche Mode vibes of “Deliver Us the Moon ” and the Jan Hammer-esque “Space Driver” which touch Jan Hammer. Here and throughout the record, the producer matches the retro sounds with very modern production and EDM song structures.
“Reach the Night” pairs a driving tech house groove with lush ambient synths. A female vocalist opens the track, dreamily riffing on the song title, then the beat drops on a driving tech house groove. The singer returns once more with a wistful yet hopeful ballad, before the drop lands on some epic EDM.
On “Favourite”, the adventurous producer mixes a bit of jungle house into his synthy motif. After a banging instrumental intro, a male vocalist offers a soulful torch-song lament. Soon the beat takes us back to the dance floor. The record closes on the fist-pumping anthem, Unstoppable. Pixelanddigital weaves threads of techno, house, trance, and synthwave into this exciting electro-rocker.
