VanchyPosted: October 11, 2011
From our little world called Earth we present you Vanchy, a stargazer from San Francisco, United States. Always seeking a catchy, soothing sound, Vanchy drives you into poetic worlds with sounds that are hard to ignore and forget.
As you listen to his work you will find not only feel good melodies, beautiful guitars mixed with electronic synths, immersive soundscapes but also a connection between an image and a story. In his words: “My music creative process is very visual. Without an image or personal experience, it is impossible for me to sculpt my sound vision. I could storyboard a film right now for all my songs and know exactly where each visual falls. I’m also a visual designer and photographer and my ideas always go along with my music. Just like water and air, it is hard for me to imagine the world without these two elements. My life is like a motion picture that always comes with a soundtrack.”
You can notice a lot of influences in his music, most of them from artists we already love, like Ulrich Schnauss, Moderat, Röyksopp, Massive Attack, Tangerine Dream, Depeche Mode and New Order, only to mention a few.
From the moment i got to know Vanchy’s work i got somehow addicted. It’s part of my soundtrack everytime i need a “chillout fix”. I have to agree with his words: “My goal is to create sounds that engage people in clear and conscious states.”
‘Emotional Allure of Space‘ was his debut album, released in May 5, 2011. You can buy it on iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. Full of deep atmospheres, this album is meant to be listened from beginning to end as everything was carefully crafted to drive you to an amazing trip of emotions.
Vanchy is currently working on his upcoming EP, so be sure to following him on Facebook or Twitter for further details and updates. Here’s a little selection from his Soundcloud for you to listen. Be sure to check the other tracks if you happen to fall in love with him.
