After three years of teasing and saying “No, it’s not ready yet”, the time has finally come to reveal my brand-new album THE NIGHT IS REVOLUTION to you.
This has been a long and challenging process. The year was 2016 and my friends and I just saw Nicolas Winding Refn’s THE NEON DEMON in theaters. The film absolutely blew us away! We left the movie theatre that summer evening hypnotized by the sheer beauty of the picture, the rush of colors and the mesmerizing sounds of Cliff Martinez’ musical score. The next day I began working on what would become the first track that would find its way onto the record, “Infinite Neon”.
THE NIGHT IS REVOLUTION could have turned out completely different. It was a different album in 2016, morphed into something else in 2017, almost fell apart in 2018 and took on a new life in 2019. For some reason, each time I thought I was ready, I kept saying “No, it’s not ready. Something is missing. This isn’t the record it should be”. I mixed the tracks over and over again, added new sounds, threw some tracks out the window, changed the structure of the record several times, composed new tracks, changed the order of the tracks again and again… It was painful but necessary. As stressful as the experience of making this album was, I always felt confident of doing the right thing. Now, four years from inception to completion, THE NIGHT IS REVOLUTION is the record it should be — a journey with a beginning, a middle and an end. The music has a dream-like quality, everything feels organic and complex and it’s probably the most upbeat album I’ve ever done.
