SwitchSt(d)anceis a difficult name to memorise but the music is pretty catchy. It sounds strange at first, confusing even, some sort of beat out of rhythm, too slow, too dense, too unknown, too naked, too real. There are lots of definitions you can choose from: electronic, hypnotic, gothic, psychedelic, melodic, organic, minimalistic, futuristic, introspective. But besides clichés, it is all about music for the brain or brain music, because if you pay attention, if you take time to understand it, these melodies and beats take hold of you, they feed your mind and embrace your body, making you feel like your floating over the dance floor. If you think youre going to a club to chat or flirt, think again or come later. Here its all about you and the music - its hypnotic and retro arpeggiators, sometimes out of tune or rhythm, introspective soundscapes - and the deep journey you get into.
