UNSIGNED 008 : Thodén – Shape Dexter


After a brief hiatus our unsigned series is back. Producers who have appeared on the series so far have been approached by labels and subsequently had material released by them after we helped shed some light on the new talents. We hope we’re able to do the same with the next one in the bunch, coming from Thodén. Get to know a little about him below:


Hey my names Kris, I’m 20 and a student based in Manchester. Been DJ’ing and producing for a little less than 2 years now. This track is a culmination of all the things I’m into at the moment, namely breaks and some of the higher bpm electronic stuff. Really wanted to capitalise on the euphoric feel that the combination of the synth and breaks provided. Once I got those down it was all about adding to and enhancing the atmosphere, using echoey vocal chops, a 303 and that final synth line that rounds the track off. Was important to create an effective buildup between sections too, gating the synth and filtering the breaks did the trick there.


I’m still learning the ins and outs of production, haven’t been at this very long. Stumbled upon the ‘unsigned’ series and its perfect for this kind of thing, glad I can use it as a platform for sharing some of what I make.


Cheers,

Thodén
