Artist Spotlight: Roland Reinke

My natural instinct in music is towards the dark, cinematic, vast soundscapes often created by artists such as Bjork, Funkstorung, and Future Sound of London. I’m also a big fan of Herbert, who creates amazing collages of sounds that he rips up, smashes, and then puts back together. It is the work of these artists who I was reminded of when I listened to the music of Roland Reinke.

A little about the artist from his profile:

Roland Reinke is a guitarist, bassist and producer. He studied with Vernon Reid, Tronzo, David Fiuczynski and David Gilmore.

Roland does a great job weaving melodies and tonal sounds in and out of the crunk, beats, blips and other industrial sound. You might call this Intelligent Dance Music (IDM), but I am not a big fan of genre labels, and think the dancing to this would be more like waltzing than breaking.
