Future Classic: SOHN “The Wheel”
Every time we do a show there is always one track that we wanted to include and just totally slips by. And then you hear it again and you just curse yourself for forgetting about it.
Arrrrgh. I mean, our last MIMS Radio Show (#60!) is still filled with tons of goodies but seems like this one would have just fit right in.
“Leaving the lonely nighttime streets of London for the mountainous landscapes of Austria, multi-instrumentalist and producer S O H N draws his inspiration from the dichotomy that exists between the two. Reacting to Vienna’s legendary immersive electronic scene, S O H N has created a sound that blends his haunting vocal stylings with a backdrop of analogue drum machines and synths, mixing the worlds of old and new together to create a foundation for his tracks.
Aside from emphasising the soulfulness of his voice, S O H N’s lyrics play upon the space that exists within language, twining his vocals around the gaps between sentences, and reclaiming the importance of words.”
