Lost Dream (Skysia Remix) by Nomadic
Nomadic (AKA Joshua van der Waay) is known for his exotic world-music vibes, phat dancy beats, and deep groovy bass-lines. After discovering the entrancing power of electronic music, he began producing his own beats and DJ’ing at local festivals. Inspired by travel, ancient cultures, and nature, his artistic endeavor flourished during his time in Amsterdam, where he found a new love for traditional instruments from around the globe. Through combining intricate sound-design techniques with ambient field-recordings, and contemporary synths with that of ancient traditional instruments, he seeks to find a balance between digital and organic sound.
SoCal-based producer Skysia unveils a meditative journey in ethereal bass, a patient search for the sonic balance between light and darkness. Born Tanner Allen, Skysia is a self-taught pianist, filmmaker, and production wizard wielding a unique approach to sampling. The burgeoning composer studied film in college before an about-face prompted him to follow his musical muse across the pond, earning a degree in production at the esteemed Point Blank Music School in London. Drawing inspiration from global dancefloor pioneers like Bonobo (UK) and CloZee (France), Skysia returned to the West Coast empowered, immersing himself in sound design and composition, developing an ornate, minimalist mid-tempo style awash in shimmering tones.
