Mechanical Species

Country: Sweden

The project of mechanical species was started by Dahni Strauss in 2021. Initially, it was greatly inspired by the old school sound of Infected Mushroom, follow by the Glowing flame and Peak records. On the other end of the spectra influenced by classical music ranging from Chopin to Beethoven. Gradually his focus shifted from concrete and melodic to the more abstract and he dived into the technical dimension of cutting-edge modern production. His music is now fused with various elements from all his musical journey, but a common theme that is radiating through all his work is the attempt to evoke a strong sense of a story. Non-verbal tales without linear messages. A story where the need for explanation is extinguished, attempting to temporarily stop the mind from its constant interpretation of meaning.
Synthesis is something heavily entertained in his creation and he is currently exploring the deep autonomic space of wavetables synthesis, preferably combined with frequency modulation. He is collaborating with a wide range of artists and labels, but his home is with the Forestdelic family. He is also currently working on a psychedelic morning project as well as a techno project.
