Mixing, remixing, reinventing, regurgitating, experimenting and evolving.
Glen Wallis, aka Holotropik, has always had one foot in the ancient past and the other stepping into the future. Blending the sounds of our tribal past with the technology and musical techniques of the future in a way that connects the timeless line of communication through music. Solidly grounded in rhythm based reiterative music intertwined with reflections of the present moment in time. A rhythmic diary that records its daily logs in the digital realm.
Entering this path during the peak of the electronic music scene Glen quickly dispatched with the traditional DJ techniques and explored more creative elements of this new sound. Choosing to mix drum-machines, samplers and synthesizers that provided more freedom to follow the energy of the music and the gathering. A technique that was not always the most popular or easily sustained, yet rewarding due to the instantaneous creative nature of live mixing.
The Next Wave.
Having played live sets since 2001 at various event in Australia the journey continues as a new wave of technology and mixing techniques bursts onto the scene which provides musical creativity in a live sense that was never before possible. Combined with a more diverse style of sounds that have evolved through exploration of styles such as Hard Techno, Trance, Breaks, House and Minimal. The next wave is about to break!
