Update: Satellite Beats - Earliest Transmissions Release

Satellite Beats: Earliest Transmissions Release

How do I begin? Satellite Beats... Where do I go from here? DJ Dark Flow... As an aspiring songwriter and musician, a 15-16-year-old me was lucky enough to collect and get my hands on various electronic equipment, a keyboard, an acoustic and electric guitar, and a digital recorder. With these circuits and machinery, I was able to begin to fulfill my dream and passion for songwriting by creating acoustic, electronic, and industrial atmospheres full of mystery and dread, and from this era of my musical experimentation, I produced a lot of wide-ranging material under my first musical alias, Satellite Beats. After years of having the songs on my computer, I decided to curate and release this compilation album of my earliest recordings.

As I made music with my high school-created rock band Breathe (named after the Pink Floyd song of the same name), I also explored this galaxy of sound in my own bedroom, discovering new effects, recording tricks, and ways to make music, and I captured these sounds on my 16-track Fostex recorder. I never officially released these besides trading out songs to stream on my Purevolume and Myspace (yes, many years ago) band accounts. Here, before you, is the surviving data, and my best, most interesting solo material to come out from those years. Some songs are very electronic and danceable, others are heavy, industrial tracks, and a couple are dark, acoustic/electric compositions. May this give insight into my musical being, where I came from, and how far I've come in the years since with the release of my debut full-length album Crystallize in June of this year. Stream Satellite Beats: Earliest Transmissions now on any music platform, feel the raw energy and creative tension within, and keep listening to DJ Dark Flow. More new and original releases are sure to come. Peace~
