Irish Producer Somadrone has been making electronic music since 1997 and has toured Europe, US, Asia and Australia as member of Dublin’s cult band Redneck Manifesto and Jape. His last record, Depth of Field received critical acclaim and was compared to the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Sylvian and Brian Eno. The First Wave, recorded between 2010-2013 in San Francisco, Dublin and Brooklyn NY, the record incorporates analogue drum machines, synthesizers, guitar and vocals that results in a cross pollinating, genre-less, electronic sound-scape.
