Artist Series – Rhys Sumner ‘Saint Diskette’
Rhys specialises in electronic music, namely the genres hip-hop, trap and drum and bass, and he recently graduated from a three-year music production course at UCLan in Preston. Notable for its percussive melodies and distinctive upbeat rhythms, Rhys’s music has a progressive quality that tends to arise through the layering of various timbres weaving in and out of one another, often developing into intriguing and beautiful soundscapes.
In ‘Another Ceiling…’ I aimed to create three compositions that captured the sonic characteristics of both the Uganda and the Cyprus packs whilst pushing the material to use them in unique and interesting ways. Additionally, I intended to subtly showcase the capabilities of the instruments within the context of my own work.
Rhys’s three track EP, Another Ceiling I Don’t Recognise, is available here: https://soundcloud.com/saintdiskette including:
