Dystopian Rhythm Podcast 032 – Onda Skillet
Onda Skillet (New York, NY)
This level of density would not make sense if there was no sound to this physicality, therefore we create sound to take us wherever we want. A unique selection of the effects of specific types of sounds and how they influence our body and mind through the vibrational complexity inducing redefined energies in motion.”
“Listening to his Aerotropic sound will make you want to close your eyes and imagine you’re flying just above the beach with the wind blowing through your hair.. images of vivid palm trees and blue waters come to mind when listening to his mixture of sounds with the occasional space travel over the horizon. Onda Skillet’s music is charged with profound emotion, penetrating the inner depths of the soul, and warming even the coldest of hearts. What begins as a time machine journey through your memories, evolves into a constant racing and harmonious vortex of sound. The abstract yet melodic complexities within his music send us flying into a more cerebral dream like dimension. The ability to read a crowd and play into their vibe is a gift Skillet expresses fluidly without missing a beat or losing focus, covering and creating the atmosphere of the party and for crowd.”
