, First Listen: Somadrone feat. Richie Egan – ‘Invitation’

Neil O’Connor is a prolific composer and producer. His previous Somadrone album The First Wave explored live electronic music with vintage synthesizers.

For his fifth album, Oracle, to be released on September 18th, O’Connor was more inspired by the kind of music his recent listening / club night: early disco, library music and acid house all filtered through a more minimal approach which can be heard on the sumptuous first track from the album ‘Invitation’ featuring Jape’s Richie Egan, a song which keeps things relatively sparse but still builds up into a heady synth crescendo. Check the video by Kevin Mc Gloughlain and Leon Giblin.
