Last month, we experienced the Perfect Havoc Disco Mixtape 002 + Speakermix Vol. 13 with Adam Griffin. This month, we get another aural adventure from electronic producer/songwriter TEEEL.
Constructing music in a teal painted room, Jim Smith, better known as TEEEL, creates a variety of electronic-based soundscapes. From the darker corners of electronica to otherworldy sounds of indie pop and synthwave, TEEEL takes inspiration from the '80s New Age Movement. After producing three original LP's, TEEEL switched his focus to creating smaller EP's and videos to get music out quicker for fans. Smith is also the founder of label Synth Records and iheartsynths.com.
TEEEL works on a variety of remixes. He describes his process, "Generally, I'll just use the vocal tracks and try to re-imagine the song to give it the TEEEL touch, but still remaining inline with the original concept. I'm a big fan of heavy and rigid drums, dark MOOG synthesizer bass, reverb guitar and lush, creamy synths"
