It’s only since mid 2020, halfway the first Covid-19 lockdown, when Cliff Dalton decided to start producing his own brand of electro. Cliff is not new to producing; he has several years of experience of recording and playing in studios. He lives in The Hague, also known as the Dutch West Coast, and there are certainly traces of that typical West Coast sound to be found in his music. with his love eighties soundtracks and he draws inspiration from all those crazy sounds from the past and blend them together into something new. While there is always a dancefloor in the back of his head he is always trying to make it all melodic. Something that stands out is the conceptual way in which Cliff likes to work. All his music does have a strong influence of the mechanical, the
robotic and a dark future vision to bind it all together. All these elements are used to create dense atmospheric soundscapes. Cliff himself functions as an interface between harsh reality and pure fiction, while channeling any deep and hidden fantasies into the world of electro by moving air particles. A conceptual way of looking at things and the world around you lies deep into the music. His first releases will be available on Specimen Records early 2021.
