United Kingdom-based electronic musician Skaarl, started out as a DJ playing house music, before following the usual route to producing music under various alter egos. He has left the energy of the world’s dancefloors behind however, and now creates music in more relaxed genres, such as chillout, ambient, downtempo, trip-hop, and electronic music.

In June 2013, Skaarl released his debut Tropical Haze EP, consisting of mostly electronic and downtempo tracks. While this release serves as an introduction to his music, Skaarl’s individual musical style usually features the use of lazy chords and leads, laid-back beats, glitchy percussion, as well as the occasional chopped up and processed vocal. Many of Skaarl's releases are set around an obvious theme, such as the robot-like rhythms and synthesisers used on Android, or the aquatic-tinged Blue and White single. While others have more subtle themes, which are left for the listener to interpret in their own way. Occasionally the music also drifts back to a more relaxed style of dance music, such as with the single Shadows.

After taking time away from releasing music whilst at university, Skaarl reappeared in 2016 with his first album Locked in the System. Currently Skaarl is working on several forthcoming releases as well as playing double bass as a session musician.

This is the original version of ’One Day In Your Life’, which previously had featured the radio edit on my South Of The City single. There was a slight change of direction slightly on this track, I’m not too sure what genre it actually fits into (not that I care about genres anyway) but seems to fit the description of NuDisco...someone said Funk the first time I uploaded it, but I`m going with Funky House (is that still a thing?). I actually made it using some guitars from a disco sample pack I had, it was one of my “let’s just try and make a track out of whatever samples I have at hand" tracks. It originally had a female vocal on it from the same set of samples, but I removed that as I didn’t feel that it added anything. A couple of people have said it sounds a bit like one of Daft Punk`s tracks from a while ago...I dunno about that though lol. There is also the longer original version of this, which I’m thinking about adding to an upcoming release, and will upload here in due course. This got aired a couple of times on BBC Introducing back in 2016, as did the radio edit of the title track from the release.

‘Which Way are You Going?’ is a chilled electronic track, released previously as part of a single in 2017, this is the remastered album version however. Originally this track was an intended to be a chillout track, although when the drums and a bit of a techy bassline were added it started sounding a bit more electronic, so I just went with it. This is probably one of the mixes that I didn’t actually overthink around the time when I did the mixdown, it`s probably a bit more minimalistic than it sounds anyway, so that probably depends on what your perspective is. I had wanted to make it a bit more twisted, so everything apart from the drums and bass was swirling around a bit more, but then I started to think that would end up as a bit of a train crash mix. It probably would’ve taken away the chilled out sound too. This is the ninth track from Slave To The System.

‘Necromancer (Forbidden Rituals Dub)’ is an alternative mix of a track that was released a few years ago. The original versions (the ‘Invocation’ and ‘Evocation’ mixes) were released as a two track single, I had started this more stripped back dub of it at the time, but never got around to finishing it. I decided to revise this again as I was wading through the half finished projects on my hard drive earlier this year, but I wanted to make it a bit different to the more house music oriented mixes from before. To start with I replaced the drums to change the feel of the groove. Then I went to change the bass, which I decided this time I should play on an instrument rather than just trying to follow the original bassline but with a different groove. This was played on a Stagg EDB electric double bass (yeah I know, cheap and nasty! lol) and amped with bass roundup settings dynamic mic’ed on the near-axis. Probably not the best bassline I ever played, but after amping it up I think it gives it a bit more of a moody dubby electronic feel. I also managed to chuck a theremin in there towards the end, just because I wanted it to sound a bit weird. Anyway, this is the eighth track from ‘Slave To The System’, released on 30 November 2018.

This is a second version of ‘Afterdark [Teeth & Claws, Pt. 2]’ I did, to be honest it’s not that much different, I just really changed the balance of the mix slightly, and shortened the excessive lead out from the original version. This is the seventh track from Slave To The System, with the other version of this track featuring on the Vampire Bat single previously. <h3>About the Parts of Teeth & Claws</h3> I had intended to remix the original version of ‘Teeth & Claws’, but got a bit distracted playing with one of those PPG synths and whatever drum machine it was (TR-505?), so it didn’t exactly go as I had expected and ended up sounding like this; the results were a similar, but created a completely different track. This track ended up being called `Afterdark`, which I subtitled as `Teeth & Claws Part 2` and was added to my Vampire Bat release (another one I should forget about). Also while I was creating "Part 2", I tried bouncing down the track to test the levels out, however left some of the channels muted (or was it soloed?) omitting the drums and exposing the FX returns a little more, creating another more ambient variation on the concept. So there is also a “part 3” to this (one for the album as they say).

‘Eye Witness’ is the sixth track from Slave To The System, and is a track that really just evolved out of experiments with dissonance. The string sounding parts was meant to give a feeling of something disturbing being witnessed (as in the title), these are made up of various layers that were each detuned slightly from each other. The experimental part was how far I could push the detuning and how big an interval could be used to evoke a disturbed feeling. The glitchy distorted parts (fills, breaks, whatever you want to call ‘em) were meant to represent something else occurring, speaking up about an event that just happened, confrontation, or just escaping (not sure I had really finalised that concept tbh).

’Triple Core’ is a pretty basic house track I started a long time ago, back when I was a DJ looking to make tunes for my sets, although it never saw the light of day until now. By pure coincidence I happened to open the file for this track exactly 13 years after it was originally started, which pretty much freaked me out (I actually have a screenshot to prove it too lol).

‘Freaky Medicine’ is a track that I previously demoed this on steemit a while back when it was still a WIP, the idea for this was to try and create a track using a single synth. This one synth was used for drums, bass, leads, SFX, etc. (everything apart from the vocal sample tbh). Each instrument was recorded individually, one track at a time, and then cut up, edited, rearranged, etc. (apart from the drums, which were loaded into the sampler in Ableton Live). I wasn’t too dissatisfied with the end results. Although I did consider doing a shorter version of this, but I think I would prefer to just concentrate on creating some more original material. Not sure where it fits in the genre spectrum, some kind of acid/techno type thing, but I’ll just go with electronic I suppose =) IRSC: USLZJ1894327 Release date: 30 November 2018 If you like this, you can listen to some of my other tracks on the following platforms: * Choon: https://choon.co/artists/skaarl * Whaleshares: https://whaleshares.io/@skaarl * Steemit: https://steemit.com/@skaarl * Musicoin: https://musicoin.org/artist/0x590fae07aca315cf15b36511b5facb365da80c17 or https://bit.ly/2J8l3Mn * WEKU: https://deals.weku.io/@skaarl * Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/skaarl * Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/6pJPBZpUj9WZcSQsmiDiBE Or follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SkaarlMusic Thanks for listening! https://whaleshares.io/@skaarl

'Teeth & Claws' was something that came out of the need to create something with a little bit of a dark feel to it. At the time (back in 2013), I had been creating mostly downtempo chillout tracks, but felt the need to do something a bit more moody and distorted, so I came up with ‘Teeth & Claws'. Originally part of my ‘In The Middle’ single, this has been (very slightly) revamped to feature as the second track on the ’Slave To The System Album’ as well as being rebranded in the format of ‘Teeth & Claws [Teeth & Claws, Pt. 1]'. Not too sure where the name came from originally, whether it had just been conjured up inside my head from listening to the track, or if it was when I used to watch a lot of repeats of Being Human on BBC3. Anyway, a couple of years later I tried to remix this track after playing with one of those PPG synths and whatever drum machine it was (TR-505?), which didn't exactly go as I had expected; the results were a similar, but created a completely different track. This track ended up being called 'Afterdark', which I subtitled as 'Teeth & Claws Part 2' and was added to my Vampire Bat release (another one I should forget about). Also while I was creating "Part 2", I tried bouncing down the track to test the levels out, however left some of the channels muted (or was it soloed?) omitting the drums and exposing the FX returns a little more, creating another more ambient variation on the concept. So there is also a "part 3" to this. I have been thinking of scattering all 3 around a release (like on tracks 2, 5 and 8 or whatever), I think I've taken this far enough now not to create part 4...unless of course I make another production mistake with it that I quite like the sound of.

Another track from Locked In The System, I wasn’t entirely happy with the mix in this one to be honest. So what’s up with the title of this one? Really I kept having one person or another tell me they downloaded this cool app, or video, or banging on about some kind of social media “thingy” (I’m not really a social media type of person). But these same people didn’t have a clue what was occurring in the real world around them, being so wrapped up in their phone/tablet/whatever. And then you have the conspiracy theory types, who believe whatever rubbish is on YouTube without a concept of quality control; I’ve heard everything here - the sun isn’t really there, the earth is flat, some politician is computer generated or a robot, cavemen didn’t exist - my response to that one was “yes they do, I’ve seen them on the telly, they make the cars move with their feet!” (if you can’t beat ‘em... lol). I had one guy in particular who kept banging on about these kind of things every day, so I ended up telling him that he should try living a little and downloading reality, hence the song title. Am I being one of those anti-technology hippie guys? Not particularly, I’ve used computers and technology all my life, and I’ve been using the internet since about 1993, so it’s not like I’m a newbie or anything. Personally, I find the real world far more interesting than the virtual world, not that both can’t exist together, it’s just that there is a whole load of real stuff out there to get involved with that doesn’t have an app or a YouTube video. Technology is there to augment our lives as far as I’m concern, but I know people who let it control their action far too much! Anyway, this track is basically just saying “get a grip”, because not everything has to be downloaded as an app. All made with electronic instruments of course =P IRSC USA2P1673802 Release date 9 September 2016 If you like this, you can listen to some of my other tracks on the following platforms: * Choon: https://choon.co/artists/skaarl * Whaleshares: https://whaleshares.io/@skaarl * Steemit: https://steemit.com/@skaarl * Musicoin: https://musicoin.org/artist/0x590fae07aca315cf15b36511b5facb365da80c17 or https://bit.ly/2J8l3Mn * WEKU: https://deals.weku.io/@skaarl * Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/skaarl * Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/6pJPBZpUj9WZcSQsmiDiBE Or follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SkaarlMusic Thanks for listening! https://steemit.com/@skaarl

This is a remix of Juxta’s track ‘Peaceful Tranquillity’ that got dubbed up a little bit. I wanted to keep some of the original elements of the mix, such as the vocals and some of the guitar parts. Although the dry version of the vocal was layered with the wet version, which I heavily effected to make it sound a bit swirly. Parts of the guitar were used as the original stem, but sections have been altered with side chain gating, modulation and tape delay to create a more dubby sound. I was going to record a new bassline for this on bass guitar, but I really liked those tones in the original, so just cut it up and re-arranged it. The drums consist of industrial machinery sounds that I found quite appropriate for this particular mix.

Combining some elements of two other tracks -- ‘Tropical Night’ and ‘Haze’, this was the intro track for the Tropical Haze EP from 2013. The EP was intended to be a collection of chilled out electronic tropical-rainforest-jungle type of tracks, which hopefully comes across to some extent. I am currently working on a revised version of this EP (for release in 2019), as I always thought that it could have been done a bit better, and there was another track that I wanted to include but never made the cut.

Previously uploaded to #dsound back when it was a WIP, this is now the (something like) finished version of this track, I put out for release on 21 September (2018). Does this track really deserve it’s own release? Probably not, but putting out for distribution at least gets it on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and wherever else, as well as getting a UPC and IRSC. And like all the other ...Life tracks, I’ve just been putting them out for continuity purposes (or whatever that other word was that escapes me right now).

I was working on a remix of Juxta’s track, and imported the wrong vocal into this track while I was going for a different remix of this. I liked how it sounded, so I just edited the vocal a bit to fit the track and did a mixdown. Windswept was originally a track on the single ‘Shadows’ from 2014, however I recently released some edited versions of this track under the title of ‘Shadows - The Edits’. I had some ideas for further remixes of the tracks, although as mentioned above, this was the result of a bit of a happy accident. The vocal track comes from ‘The Beautiful Ones’, which is one of the tracks on Juxta’s pretty cool album ‘Welcome To Your Life’. Thanks to Juxta for giving permission to upload this track featuring his vocals.

This was my first attempt at ambient music from a few years ago, I wanted to experiment by creating something that resembles the Flight of Icarus story, I hadn’t used Shepard tones in anything before, so used these here for ascent and descent during the flight. After take off the ascending Shepard tone sees him take off into the blue, followed by some warmer bassier tones for the moment when he gets too close to the sun, the wax (or whatever it was holding his wings together) melts, then the descending Shepard tone sees him plummet from the sky Hopefully this all makes sense to some degree 😄 This was the 5th track from my Tropical Haze EP from 2013, no idea how it relates to the other tracks, just seemed like a good idea to put it on there at the time. I’m currently working on an updated version of this for 2019, as I always thought I could have done a bit better with a couple of tracks, and include the one that didn’t make it originally.

I thought this track 'The Beautiful Ones' by Juxta was cool the first time I heard it on ACR's spotify playlist a couple of years ago, so thought that now I would give it a bit of remix treatment myself. I had originally envisioned it as a lo-fi type of remix, but had to remove some of the lo-fi processing because it was making the ride cymbals sound like triangles, killing the lo-mids and making the track lose a lot of energy, so this is the resulting mix, sin processing, listening back to it just now it probably could've had the RMS increased a bit more. Not sure what you would call this genre - electronic punk?, alternative dance?

This is a stripped back edit of 'Windswept' from the single Shadows. I tried to shave some time off of the track by shortening the intro, the first verse and last chorus (if you can call them that), also removed the sample pack vocal (the rap) that had been bugging me, although kept the female vocal because felt it fitted in with the track,

This is the last track from my Free Flowing Torrents EP, which just started out with me trying to decide which out of 2 synth baselines to use...both are actually in the track, but I made one into more of a lead synth in the end. I had been avoiding uploading this track anywhere because I thought it was a bit messy, although hearing it back a year and a half later, I don't think it's really that bad now.

To be honest, I can't remember much about how this track came about...apart from having to make several takes of bits of it and taking the keys from an old recording of a jam session, hopefully it sounds somewhat presentable though. This is another track from my Free Flowing Torrents EP. ...and yeah, I know it's spelt wrong lol.
