Summer Rain (collab using Monomachine, Sequential Pro3, Korg Minilogue)

"Sun Fils: vocals, guitar, Korg Minilogue bass
MKDVB: Sequential Pro 3 (lead, bass, arp), Elektron Monomachine (main synth riff, percussion)

I remember the exact day the lightning wildfires started in CA last summer because my family went for an early morning walk and lightning erupted unexpectedly. I even recorded it on my phone & sampled it in my next single. And somehow I knew things weren't going to be the same anymore.

It's time we gave the Earth its flowers."

"Surrender" (1st Sequential Pro 3 synth jam + Moog Matriarch, Monomachine, Juno 106, Squarp Pyramid)

video upload by MKDVB

"My 1st jam with the Sequential Pro 3 & it may already be my fave monosynth! Live ambient synthpop jam alongside the Moog Matriarch, Elektron Monomachine, Juno 106 (my last track w/ this beauty but it was time to say goodbye). Squarp Pyramid on sequencer. Chase Bliss Audio Blooper, Eventide Eclipse, Boss RV-500 reverb & Valhalla on FX duties.

I called this track Surrender because it's the last one I made with my beloved Juno 106, which I chose to sell despite my emotional attachment to its sound. I've always had a collector's mentality which lends itself to a materialistic mindset in many ways & hanging onto the 106 was more about "owning" than using or playing it. We never truly own anything so I surrendered the 106 & hopefully part of that mindset as well.

Recorded via Cranborne 500R8 & mixed/edited in post."
