It's now what you have - it's what you do with it that counts
Since their inception in 2009, the genre-defying Submotion Orchestra have moved seamlessly between deep electronica, jazz, soul and ambient downtempo, mesmerising audiences from Iceland to India. Their unique music is at once delicate and heavy, spacious and dense, highly atmospheric but firmly rooted. Earth-shaking bass and drums combine with lush keyboard and trumpet textures to create the perfect backdrop for the fragile beauty of Ruby Wood’s vocals, and the celestial effects of producer Ruckspin.
Our tip of the week from the mighty band of Leeds reminds us that it’s what you can do with the tools at your disposal that counts...
"Make the music you feel like making with whatever resources you can get your hands on. If you get good enough, real music fans will understand and appreciate it. In my opinion, if you make a good track and the mix-down is well-balanced, and you get the final premaster sent to a top mastering engineer, then your track will stand up to everything else out there, no matter what equipment you used to make it." - via Music Radar
