Irish techno producer Simon Foran has put a lot of hard work into learning the art and science of sound and music technology; his studies have included spending two years honing his craft under the mentorship of Will Kinsella (Hybrasil) (Kombination Research, Loose Records, Bush Records).
Since dropping his debut EP: "Nexus" on Dream Mode in November 2014, Simon has followed up with 2015's "Daumenatron", and 2016's 'Etymology' both on Dewing Records. Simon rounded off 2016 with his acclaimed 'Cybersex' EP on Portugal's Toxic Recordings, charting at number 6 in the Hard Techno top 100 releases.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Foran is constantly in the studio pushing his boundaries with a distinct ear for detail. He has been moulding his dark melodic sound, a sound he showcases on his latest two track EP: Nihilus, released September 28th on Distrackt Records.
Nihilus - Starting with a sinister/ evil style pad with an acid growling bass building up in the background, touches of infectious perc's and stab's throughout the track with an eerie synth sounding voice. With a driven melodic synth stab lead with a sinister twist. A hard hitter with a feeling of your been followed/ chased, always creeping up behind you.
Filtered Hound - A contagious rolling bass building with a synth stab carrying it with a warm pad underneath. Beautiful break's with a hands in the air vibe. Melodic lead synth been introduced to a building synth drone/ sequence bringing it in with its heavy kick and infectious hats.
