“Cotard Delusion” is the fourth release from up-and-coming Trance artist, Will Renville.
Just a few years in the production game, the Brighton, England native is beginning to make a name for himself with his signature Tech-driven songs.
We recently caught up with Will, and he was kind enough to provide the following regarding this uniquely stellar offering.
“Within my recent tracks and live sets, I have tried to create a style surrounding the darker side of the genre and seeing how far down the rabbit hole you can take it and still call it ‘Trance.’
Over the past few years, I have spent a bit of time in India and got into Psy Trance, but I also found the ‘full-on’ stuff way too rolling and trippy. The Psy elements I like are the stabs and FX hits, so the aim was to try and incorporate them into the track while keeping the driving techy sound that I want people to associate with me.
I enjoy searching for random samples, so when I found the creepy girl’s voice, I knew it had to be thrown in there. I love the idea of people hearing it in a club and thinking, ‘what the hell is this?’ because those are the things that stick in people’s minds!
I have also noticed that a lot of tracks recently have huge leads through the breakdown which I think can sound quite samey. I wanted to create a breakdown which was a bit different, basing it around some cool sounding atmospheres, haunting melody, and some synth stabs to make a trippy effect which all builds into a big twisted techy drop.
I’m reading more and more comments about how Trance/electronic music, in general, is getting quite generic sounding, so I hope people enjoy my attempts to think outside the box and keep things fresh.
There’s plenty more where this came from!” – Will Renville
With prior releases signed to Tangled Audio, Discover Dark, and MASS, this young artist is sure to please listeners for years to come.
“Cotard Delusion” will be released on March 30, 2020, courtesy of Radiation Recordings.
