Stray Signal (EP, 2018)

Stray Signal, the latest EP by Planetdamage reflects on the notion that there is nothing inherently wrong with technology – it’s humans that keep messing things up. On the new EP you have four original electro-industrial tracks and some remixes to go with it – by none other than AngelspitLeaether Strip and Der Prosector!  (Released on Two Gods Recordsentry on Discogs.)

  • Stray Signal marks a new milestone in my production workflow: after having worked with Renoise for a longer time, I switched over to Bitwig and started incorporating outboard gear.
  • I also started doing one-hour session experiments: aim was to do a song in an hour. If I cannot finish a song in an hour, finish at least one verse and a chorus in an hour. If I cannot finish those, there is definitely room for improvement. Three songs out of the four originals come from such sessions.
  • If you VST your basslines, I whole-heartedly recommend G-Sonique Renegade.
  • If you are interested in more trivia about my songwriting process and how each song was made, I would totally advise you to buy the EP on Bandcamp… that way you get a production diary bundled with the music that will tell you a whole lot of secret goodness!
