Solid State Drive's Brilliant new album 'Sub Symphony' is OUT NOW!
Solid State Drive, AKA Kev Curtis, is no stranger to the limelight. Composing his first documentary score for the BBC in 1996, Kev went on to enjoy an illustrious career in the world of sync (music to picture). Having written music for programs on; Channel 4, Sky, ITV, Channel Five and The Discovery Channel, Kev has established himself as a go to music producer, for many high powered TV Executives. This has led to the programmes that he has written music for, winning BAFTAs and RTS awards.
When Kev is not busy soundtracking our TV viewing, he indulges in his passion for Leftfield Electronica. The music of Solid State Drive is a perfectly blended fusion of the Orchestral and the Electronic, with Rock influences. Of course being a highly talented multi-instrumentalist always helps in these matters, allowing Kev to record a variety of the live parts of this album himself. Joining the party is also a careful selection of talented musicians. The level of musicianship here is high.
Now on its third release, Dusted Down was formed as a subsidiary label of successful Breaks label Dusted Breaks. Having won the award for Best New Label in 2010 at the Breakspoll Awards the guys have worked with the cream of the breaks world ever since. Now, label manager Lee Martin is embarking on a venture into the world of Leftfield Electronica with Dusted Down.
Sub Symphony delivers a relaxing, yet diverse ride for the listener. The album varies from more downtempo electronica to more driving tracks, with pulsating 909 kicks and harder-edged synth lines. Melody and harmony are a plenty throughout the album and there is no doubt there is a level of musicianship here that most electronic albums don't reach.
The album is now available on iTunes and will soon be available on all other stream and download sites from August 26th
