Scintilla 07 – Somadrone – Wellpark Avenue
Wellpark Avenue, is street that somadrone resides in Drumcondra, Dublin. The studio, housed in a box room in his home was demolished after the recordings were complete for renovations, thus the album is a document of the music made in there from 2013-16.
Contributors include Margie Lewis and John Cowhie on Vocals. Mostly tracked and
recording on 1/4 analogue tape, this process gives the album an etherial feel. Mixed at
the National Concert Hall Studios and mastered at Studio Molan, Malmo, Sweden.
The album incorporates spatial and sonic effects to create dramatic effect within a
sound that is forever challenging and evolving in what is now Somadrone’s 20th year of
electronic music making.

Scintilla 06.2 – Somadrone – The Howling Infinite feat. Margie Lewis (Single – 2017)
The Howling Infinite, from the upcoming sixth studio album, Wellpark Avenue, is a game changer for Dublin Producer, Somadrone. Gone are the drum machines and heavy synthesizer use from The First Wave (2013) and Oracle (2015) and a return to traditional song and instruments akin to Depth of Field (2010). Dystopia, Psychedelia, LSD, Timothy Leary, TV Music of the 1970’s all contribute to the sound of The Howling Infinite, a sound that references the likes of seminal British band Broadcast. The album incorporates spatial and sonic effects to create dramatic effect within a sound that is forever challenging and evolving in what is now Somadrone’s 20thyear of music making.
