Rakoon - From The Ashes EP

<p> <strong>Rakoon</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Passionate about music from the age of 10, and in love with composing from the first days, the guitar took me with the years to create and immerse myself into numerous styles.</p> <p> In parallel, I have always been surrounded by psychedelic electronic music, and, few years ago, I discovered the french Electro Dub scene. This discovery made me evolve towards machines, wanting to create Dub music, inspired by all those kinds of music that I got into those last 10 years.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="500" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fw.soundcloud.com%2Fplayer%2F%3Fvisual%3Dtrue%26url%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fapi.soundcloud.com%252Ftracks%252F139180901%26show_artwork%3Dtrue&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fsoundcloud.com%2Frakoonreggae%2Fwalk-to-the-sun&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi1.sndcdn.com%2Fartworks-000111985025-g1j1cm-t500x500.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=soundcloud" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>From The Ashes</strong>:</p> <p>  </p> <p> This EP, true to my Electro Dub style, keeps the essence and soul of the tracks I have released so far. However, it marks a new turn in my production. Taking its inspiration from Liverpool, Toulouse, Barcelona, London, Brussels and Paris, “From The Ashes”  aspires to be more melodic, more psychedelic, more experimental. The EP will feature 4 unreleased tracks that have already been recorded. However, if the goal amount is surpassed, it would help to fund the incorporation of more tracks</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>An Evolution, a new breath</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Between the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014, creativity is at its best, track releases are frequent, and the popularity (though still humble) of my musical project is expanding. My style gets more precise, and the pleasure of producing is growing more and more.</p> <p>  </p> <p> After that comes a period of inactivity, a progressive loss of inspiration, lasting almost a year. And then I resurface, with the need to express myself again, to tell new stories. I rediscover the will to rise "From the Ashes" and to perform on stage and live my music.</p> <p>  </p> <p> I turn on my machines again , re-tune my guitar, my inspiration reemerges, with the desire today to take this project to a new level.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FEguzRX2E5h4%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DEguzRX2E5h4&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FEguzRX2E5h4%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> Besides showcasing my tracks on SoundCloud, I now want to release a coherent project, available in both digital and physical form.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A “Free Dowload EP”, with a professional aim</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> In the era of generalized illegal downloading, I have always given free access to my productions, because I wanted my music to be available to the largest potential audience. Free sharing has always been important to me, and “From The Ashes” will remain true to this philosophy. For those who, like me, are fond of the real, physical CD, I will sell the EP during my shows at cost price.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>Why fund a free project?</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> The available productions on SoundCloud until today are demos. Today I want to offer a more professionally accomplished product, from mastering to the CD burning. As all this comes at a cost, I’m calling today for your support.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="10178022_819024108126998_6923426373343357871_n-1431439117" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/196865/10178022_819024108126998_6923426373343357871_n-1431439117.jpg"></p>
