Radio Wolf's New EP is a Soundtrack for Insomnia
Radio Wolf aka Oliver Blair is an electronic music artist, songwriter and record producer based in Berlin. His latest EP "NIGHT LIGHT" was composed exclusively during late-night hours. Its serene and dimly lit soundscapes seem to hide dark secrets, like the night itself. If you ever wondered why nobody ever wrote more music that is as magnificent, sombre, warm and quietly epic as Elegia by New Order, then this album is for you. "I call the collection of instrumentals on NIGHT LIGHT my "cinema of the mind" because I created the music from imaginary film scenes I invoked in the nighttime, no doubt inspired by the movies and soundtracks I grew up with. The imagery of artists like David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick, John Carpenter, Mario Bava, Alfred Hitchcock—the sounds of Angelo Badalamenti, Brian Eno, Vangelis, even rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix and many more—all frequencies you tune in and out of over time," says the artist. We asked Oliver to talk about each track from his excellent EP.
