Dublin, County Dublin

Irish electronic music producer Somadrone has been making music since 1997 and has toured Europe, US, Asia and Australia as member of Dublin’s cult band Redneck Manifesto and Jape. 2010’s Depth of Field received critical acclaim and was compared to the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Sylvian and Brian Eno. His fourth album, The First Wave, recorded between 2010-2013 in San Francisco, Dublin and Brooklyn NY, the record incorporates analogue drum machines, synthesizers, guitar and vocals that results in a cross pollinating, genre-less, electronic sound-scapes. Somadrone is currently completing album number five and has festival shows in Ireland and Germany this summer.
