See our previous announcement here, for more about this project.
Listen to a preview of the album below (video premieres March 8 at 11 AM).
“I wanted to change my style up a bit and head in a direction that is more accessible, with catchy vocals and synth lead music as Aqka Torr. I mainly produced these tracks using analog and modular synths, both hardware and software. The idea was to have a bassy textured hip-hop, pop and psychedelic music influenced album. Utilizing delicate distortions and raw percussions, I wanted varied tracks throughout, yet maintain coherence as a whole.”
Listen to TAQUIN:
Frank Riggio has released five studio albums, including Raze – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, three EPs and officially remixed artists like Amon Tobin (for Ninja Tune) and HECQ (aka Ben Lukas Boysen). Stay tuned for more album news this week!
