Take a listen below.
Scanner Darkly finds inspiration not only among his fellow artists but also in metaphysics, pagan theology and all forms of philosophy, his core sound is a blend of hard percussive elements complimented by dark synths and uplifting melodies. Not one to subscribe to a single genre, he has made an effort to study and understand various genres of electronic music and incorporate them into his signature sound.
His early musical influences come from industrial and heavy metal and his introduction to Techno music through mix tapes and also attending underground /outlawparties in the late 90’s east coast rave scene. Fast forward to position as a budding producer where he has taken his creativity to new heights, and dark direction with an uncompromising approach to pushing the boundaries of expanding, sonic sensibility.
Live, he is active on the club and festival circuit with sets that are a blend of steady percussive grooves, contrasted by dark as well as haunting breakdowns. This is where he is able to create a unique experience with loops and samples that allow him to further push the boundaries of performing live and gives audiences an explosive and memorable experience
