Feeling a bit camera shy


My name is James Pingel. I make electronic music that you could dance to, or listen to in a quiet place, or put on while you you party. Almost everyone who hears it says the same thing first: "This sounds like videogame music". And certainly, part of how I came into electronic music was playing more videogames than I should have when I was younger.

If my influences and vision ended there, I would not have become the unique artist I am today. I like a lot of things about dance music; the rhythm, the production, the complete control over the sound. But, there's things that I don't care for when it comes to dance music these days too, like the lack of musicality and the mainstream sound design (with the wubs and dubs and wild pitch bends and such). I aim for a sound and style that I enjoy much more with my work. Clean, musical, and different, are the words that people most commonly use to describe it, after the videogames bit. I've done work for several compilation albums of various genres, ranging from old school trance to modern half-step bass music, but my heart lies with a melodic take on house with some of the repetitiveness of trance mixed in. Sometimes, I come up with really nice melodic content that just doesn't want to be dance music, and that's fine. I do some ambient, laid back songs too.

I write music, I electrify it, and then I mix it first to get the character I want out of my sounds, and then to get the cleanest, clearest sound I can get. That attention to detail goes from start to finish on every sound you will hear on every track I make. That attention to detail, the preservation of musicality, is what sets me apart from other producers out there, even if most people are not aware of that yet, even if they never will be.
