With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Tuesday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
Signed to MedSchool records, William Keen, known better by his Keeno pseudonym, is an example of what makes a versatile DJ and producer. Although his feet are firmly planted within the DnB genre, his classically trained background and multi-instrument skills create a truly unique version of the genre that not only fits the space of a dancefloor with its breakbeat drum sound, but could also slot perfectly into a film score with its orchestral elements that transport listeners to another dimension. His most recent release All The Shimmering Things is the perfect representative project of that, with soft strings, piano, ethereal vocals and raw percussion all tied together by a fuzzy electronic climax into a drop of dnb style beats.
