Introducing VNCCII and her monstrous new single, Wasteland
An emerging Sydney producer making some forward thinking, sci-fi-leaning bass music.
She might only be two tracks deep into her production career, but Sydney-based producer VNCCII is ready to rock and roll as far as we're concerned. Following on from the ethereal SKYWLKR, she's just unleashed an absolute beast in Wasteland, mixed and mastered by one of the world's finest talents - Shawn Naderi, best known for his work on Flume’s Skin. The melding of science fiction and bass vibes are doing it for us big time, and we sent her a few questions to get to know her a little better:
Tell us about about yourself?
I’m an underground electronic music producer/DJ based in Sydney. I graduated from Ableton Liveschool mid-2015 so I’ve been producing for over two years now honing my craft.
What kinda tunes we talkin’?
Expect the unexpected haha. Overall though, I make high-energy anthemic and bass-forward club sounds to downtempo wonky, experimental as well as future with a cinematic twist.
Every song to me is like a creative science experiment. I often have a visual aesthetic in my head or a concept before I even start producing a track to get inspired. I also love emotive sound design so I spend a lot of my time just crafting the perfect sound that’s in my head onto a computer. It really varies depending on the song for how I begin a track. Sometimes it’s a melody that I flesh a track around, other times it starts with a beat and will become more of a beat-driven track. For my heavier tracks, I envision how I could picture people moving to the track in a live club/festival setting and that informs the beat, sound design and arrangement. I often find the best tracks for me happen the quickest in terms of the creation process.
Can you tell us about your new single, Wasteland?
It’s pure adrenaline and chaos. Imagine being teleported to a dystopian sci-fi Mad-Max alien killer chase scene with heart-racing action sequences and thrills. Btw, the creepy pitched-down vocal i.e. “Release the Wildebeest” was my voice pitched down and manipulated.
Any shows coming up?
Stay tuned :P
What’s the rest of the year have in store?
More single releases and a live show followed by an EP release early 2018.
Where can we hear more of your music?
SOUNDCLOUD is a good start!
