On the 13th of November 2018, I released my first album on Finity, the first label that introduced me to everyone in my realm of the underground music scene.
I initially self-released “The Fall Out” and received an email from Finity, in which they showed interest in the song and wanted me to release it with them. I was excited at the prospect of having my first label release and went with it, releasing “The Fall Out” as a single with them. I was then invited to their Discord server, where I met some of my now-closest friends.
I worked more on singles separately until a bunch of friends of mine told me I should try working on an album. I thought it would be a good idea as I could categorise music and also try to portray a story through them that evolves as you progress through, with each song having its own piece of the puzzle. I eventually finished 13 tracks and submitted them to Finity, and it was released.
I would like to express my gratitude towards Finity and the doors they opened for me. I met so many like-minded and talented people through them and this led to the formation of my own little circle of friends and the Revenant and Friends Discord. From then on, I found more communities affiliated with them and met more new people, many of which to this day I cherish and am thankful for. I also met one of my favourite people in existence called Harlow (who also makes music under the alias sunbloom, formerly known as Snow Ghost).
This album is incredibly special to me, even if it might not be my best and cleanest work. If I did not accept the Finity release initially and did not go through to make this album, I would never have met the people I have in my life today, and many things would never have come into existence such as Parable Collective and CODENAME:NIOCELL.
I would also have never progressed with my production or improved. Being around the people I have met has encouraged me to continue striving to make my work better and try new things.
My favourite songs from Reminiscence are Until We Fall and Downfall. Until We Fall is a song to this day that I still hold dear to me, as it holds all the memories of how life was easier and how much happier I was. Its warm and amateurish sound reminds me of those times and how much I want another time like that to come around. Downfall was the first song I properly experimented with sound design in.
