Episode 4: Jayeson Andel Illuminates the World Behind Debut Album Urban Monks The EDMist Podcast

    • Music

In episode 4, melodic electronic producer Jayeson Andel guides us through the "organic-infused cyberpunk" world behind his debut album, Urban Monks. Released last year on Silk Music's Arrival division, Urban Monks was named one of the 5 best albums of 2015 by The EDMist. It is a diverse work that includes glitch hop, trance, progressive house, and dubstep, and managed to crack the Beatport top 10 across five different genres. In this conversation, Jayeson lays out the concepts behind several tracks, which include visions of mechanized humans and artificial fireflies. He reveals the nuanced sound design underlying several songs, and explains how he builds his music for three dimensional journeys. Jayeson also names his biggest inspirations for the album and his music, which include both well-known producers and sci-fi films. And he answers the question of why none of the songs from Urban Monks have yet or ever will be remixed.
