Sadness Is A Reason To Dance
Sadness Is A Reason To Dance says biskuwi. But is that right? Never found it myself. More a pleasure in and of itself. And an escape. Not from sadness per se. Just everyday life. How about you?
But why do we feel sad? Pain I can understand, from an evolutionary perspective. Carissa Bruno offers “In the DBT (dialectical-behavioral therapy) model developed by Marsha Linehan, emotions are cited as serving three primary purposes: motivation, communication, and self-validation. The first two are most approachable from an evolutionary perspective. Sadness, or any avoidance-driving emotion like anger or fear, can motivate one to alter one’s environment to be more conducive to thriving. Secondly, because humans are social animals, exhibiting signs of distress associated with sadness can communicate to others that a person is in need of assistance.”
The track is a piece of Scandie techno. Quite mellow in parts, this is no assault on the senses. Currently available to pre-order, this throbs with melancholy offset by a lead synth line that promises better things to come. A wonderfully intricate example of techno, allied with synth sensibilities.
“Yalcin Efe, aka “biskuwi”, is a Stockholm based electronic music producer whose involvement with music has spanned more than 20 years. His musical journey commenced at 7, when he started playing with toy pianos and pretty much anything that could produce notes. Shortly after, he found himself taking guitar lessons to make the dream come true: a front man in a rock band!
Played in numerous rock and metal bands; it was not until 2010 that he transitioned his sound; gravitating more and more towards electronic music, especially deep house and techno. Hence his ability to unite several elements and genres throughout his current productions.
His dark ambient melodic sounds are distinctive, forged through a combination of digital, analogue and physical instruments sourced within his own studio. He creates musical elements that twist and wrap organically around each another. Thus, they become one big living and evolving ‘things’.”
