VNDL – Something for Someone EP out on Abstrakt Reflections

Among all the talented podcasters we’ve been honored to welcome in our Unlog Podcasts’ series in 2011, VNDL was the IDM guy to follow. This Canada based DJ and producer provided us a selection of is works in the Unlog Podcast #4, among which we could already hear some tracks meant to be released some months later in an EP project called Something for Someone.

« […] This EP will be a subtle melting between organic and cinematic substances, ambient and rythmic tracks, all in a futuristic mood. »

The Argentinian label Abstrakt Reflections now counts a new promising music maker among its artists with this new release.

« Phlilippe Vandal is a young man from Canada. Phil has already signed 2 full-length albums on such competent labels as Hymen Records and Raumklang Music. However, VNDLpresents his first EP album on Abstrakt Reflections.

In his debut release, VNDL shows all the shining facets of his unique and organic style. Using live instruments as well as all range of electronic devices, Phil constructs the changing, mysterious sonic world. Textured soundscapes, generated of multitude of layers of sounds, segue to long awaited granular and massive beat parts. The musician uses all the hooks of glitch and IDM scene, combining them in a very improvising manner, originating his own, unique style of electronica. The reality, constructed by VNDL, takes you away to the world of futuristic vehicles, cybernetic cities and unknown environment. The details of the sound are so numerous and so vital, that you will probably go deep enough through the stories this music tells. Like the authentic artist, VNDL uses all the impressions of the last year of his life to make the album sound with deep emotional supply.

The long awaited EP « Something for Someone » also contains a split work with Access to Arasaka, whom VNDL calls his biggest inspiration. »
