Electronic soundscape scupturist Sound Strider and newly founded record label Red Tent Records entitled Occult Electric. France's Sound Strider (the brianchild of Sam Waks) explores the deep space sectors of electronic that many other like minded artists don't capture. The psychedelic canvas that he paints can ease your mind and send you in a trance that only dreams are made of.
In 2018, Waks formed the label and production company Red Tent Records, along with long-time friend and collaborator Ghost In The Chill. Red Tent Records was created to bridge the gap between two worlds:
- Man & Machine - Soul & Matter - Acoustic & Electronic
"This release explores my relationship with chaos magic and the occult. In some sense it is about the search for a new way of being unbounded by the strict codes of monotheistic religion and/or scientific materialism."
Probing the fertile crossroads of occult ritual and electronic music, veteran experimentalist Sound Strider dives deep into the liminal spaces of 21st century electronica in search of new forms. Arcane analog loops prised from dusty synthesizers illuminate supernatural soundscapes sampled from the wild frontier. Rhythmically complex and texturally intricate these sinuous electric emanations stir primal forces. In keeping with the Red Tent ethos live musicians mingle with their digital brethren in this shamans brew of post-rave pastiche. Nothing is true, everything is permitted.
