Shock of Daylight is the music of Scottish-born-London-based multi-instrumentalist Danny Currie, whose work as a guitarist and producer, in various bands, has been featured across several web and digital media outlets over recent years, including BBC 6 Music.
Since 2013, Shock of Daylight has been weaving organic and electric noise, stripped-back motorik percussion and processed samples into looping, minimalist structures, influenced as much by modern classical greats like Philip Glass and Steve Reich, as by contemporary and early electronica.
Verschollene EP is Shock of Daylight’s 4th and most ambitious release. The tracks stretch longer, spanning more genres than before, with minimal techno, ambient noise, and modern classical influences standing out.
Despite the complex blend of styles the tracks themselves are simple and focused, with often a single figure or concept spun out to its conclusion, clearly drawing inspiration from the ambient work of artists like Brian Eno and William Basinski, as well as proto-electro/krautrockers like Cluster, Harmonia and Neu!

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” is Patkus’ third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015’s “Colors.” Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” mirrors Patkus’ journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.
