Slashrofl Awesome chillvibes! Heartbreaker reminds me of Kavinsky's Nightcall and it's one of the best synthwave songs i've heard so far! Favorite track: Heartbreaker.

RED STATIC Immediate and mysterious, Animal Magnetism is a darkened garden path you know you've been on before but now takes strange turns and twists into territory both frightening and whimsical. Favorite track: Walk With Me (ft. Johnny Accioly).

Scumbag Initially this may sound like it's gonna be a kind of synthpop retro album. Yes, it's definitely electronic music, but "pop" is not an accurate adjective. There is an underlying darkness, almost menacing in its quality. Not as overtly aggressive as most electro-industrial music (Skinny Puppy, Velvet Acid Christ, et al), I think the phrase "passive aggressive" fits rather nicely. Heavily treated vocals add strength to the observation too.
Conclusion: Fan-freakin'-tastic!! Favorite track: The Sacred.

Collins is a producer, DJ, sound designer and song writer from Ireland now based in Rio de Janeiro. His DJ career started in the 90's, where he mixed techno on vinyl in the underground clubs of Dublin. After a relocation to London in 2002, he played in numerous clubs across Europe and competed in various DJ contests, winning 1st place awards in the "Mixmag Future Heroes" and "Turnmills Stomp" competitions.

In 2006, he purchased a midi controller and computer with which he began to produce and write his own tracks. His influences are wide and varied from The Beach Boys to Daft Punk, Nirvana to MPM Soundtracks, Depeche Mode to Kavinsky, with blogs such as the Valerie Collective, Synthetix, Uncle TNUC, Electronic Rumours, and Future City proving inspirational in the continous development of his sound and vision. Today he uses a combination of Moog hardware and VST instruments in Ableton Live.

"January, 2013, Ipanema; As I sit here now, trying to recall the events from 30 years ago, in that spring of '83, that led to my journey into the darkness of an unanswered love. A darkness so sweet and captivating, I wished never to return. The memories, though vague at best, are trapped, haunting the deep recesses of my mind. This is what they sound like..."
