Synthetic Soul & Other Junk

Brutal Music

Released: 25th October 2010 | 20 track leftfield/idm album
OVERVIEW After forging new ground with his previous sonic hotchpots Miscellaneous Mutant Mishaps and The Exploding Disco Inevitable, Dom Thomas returns with another brain melting audio escapade into the ether. The third album in his dynamic anti-mixtape series on Brutal Music is salubriously entitled Synthetic Soul & Other Junk, giving Thomas free license to curate a mood that takes the unsuspecting listener on a cascading journey of edits and loops, blurring the lines of traditional DJ mixes and original compostion. Synthetic Soul is composed of a variety of genres from International Disco Frankenstien Thomas' musical heritage, warping together vastly disparate records into a rich sonic tapestry. Repeated listening recommended with or without substances. DOM THOMAS BIOGRAPHY Through his cross-continental club night B-Music, Dom Thomas has travelled the world twice over supplying Psych-starved mods, b-boys and misfits throughout the world with his unique brand of unidentifiable cosmic slop. An ardent, assiduous B-Music crusader - whose love of obscure, obsolete, deleted and delectable experimental vintage Pop music and graphic design has sparked a vibrant record-stall, dancefloor and sub-cultural uprising, this Manchester beat-freak spearheads an infectious, impetuous campaign that champions long-forgotten way-out sounds. His unquenchable pursuit of digging for re-found sounds begun in 1999 when he and partner in crime Andy Votel launched Wandys World a head nod to the Warhol template of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable and the party scene in Midnight Cowboy. Creating a momentary psychedelic haven for bored indie kids, house heads and hip hoppers who were looking for something new to submerge their eyes and ears in. This gradually developed into the genre defining 'B-Music' moving from bar to club, country to country, pulling in A-/B+ pop-celebrity fanatics of outsider music and ultra-rare bakelite discs. During the last decade of eye-watering DJ sets and eye-popping visuals B-Music has developed into a global scene with events in every corner of the world. In 2005 with co-collaborators Andy Votel and Doug Shipton he formed the much lauded re-issue label Finders Keepers. Their flagship release saw Jean-Caude Vannier's holygrail 'L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches' album unleashed on an unsuspecting public. Setting the benchmark for the future releases, it embodied Finders Keepers' ongoing ethos of paying absolute attention to detail and musical workmanship. Creating an 'accidental world music label' with a punk aesthetic and DJ friendly ethos, allowing the desperate listener to sit back and enjoy schizoid cultural channel-hopping compilations and rocking-horse-shit re-releases in the comfort their psych-starved living rooms.
"OUTSTANDING LOOPS WITH FRAGMENTS AND ELECTRONICS OVER THE TOP, BETWEEN DARK AND LIGHT, A SORT OF MAGIC HOUR."
