Rhythmic Remix releases debut LP, “Contrastrations”

Electronica instrumental album showcases unique vision and songwriting

Nick Mitchell is a music business student at Lebanon Valley College. He’s also a familiar face at the school’s Music Industry Student Association, and Revolution Music Conference. If that wasn’t enough, Mitchell is also the president of Freedom Rings, Lebanon Valley College’s LGBT alliance club and the business manager for the campus newspaper, La Vie Collegienne. Somehow, he also finds the time to create his own music. All that experience should become very useful once Mitchell – or Rhythmic Remix – gets his career in the music industry started. And that day is coming very soon.

As Rhythmic Remix, Mitchell has announced the release of his debut electronica album, “Contrastrations.”

Unlike standard electronica fare, the tracks on “Contrastrations” feature virtually no looping and few samples. A melody plays, and might be repeated once or twice, but after that it’s gone. The result is an organic production that feels something like avant-garde jazz performance reworked as a free jam garage session – if you set the whole thing on a spaceship.

Rhythmic Remix is inspired by other great producers and artists like Daft Punk, Deadmau5, and Milton Jackson. He describes the motivation behind the unique musical style as a desire to avoid the endless looping and sampling of traditional electronic music.

“Well, of course this music does not contain lyrics, but my goal was to create an album out of the ordinary. Contrastrations means contrasting orchestrations. Within each song, you will hear contrasting passages that almost make it sound like more than one song. This album includes a variety of different sounds, mostly taken directly from Logic Pro. Overall, I wanted to create an electronic album that strayed away from repetitive, because a lot of electronic albums loop over and over, and I wanted to minimize that here.”

The ever-changing melody and varied themes give “Contrastrations” a cinematic feel, and the sense of a larger story is present across the album. Give “Contrastrations” a listen and find out for yourself.
