Glenn Morrison‘s deluge of heavy-hitting support from some of the most legendary titans in dance music marks the return of award-winning Canadian producer to the dance floor.
After a considerable hiatus away from the EDM limelight working as a songwriter and producer for Sony Records and Universal Music Group, Glenn Morrison is back with brand new long-player ‘Into The Deep’.
A pure passion project for Glenn Morrison, ‘Into The Deep’ is an exquisitely produced piece of work, a true journey of stereosonic discovery. Boasting a sound reminiscent of the critically-acclaimed ‘Northern Exposure’ compilations, Morrison brings an intelligent, thoughtful vibe back to dance music. From dark, driving, progressive cuts to dreamy, trance-like singles; from throbbing, grinding, tribal tones through to hypnotic, undulating, bass-heavy pieces, this is a world class producer indulging in the pleasure of sound.
Standout tracks on the album that premiered earlier this week include ‘Hang Tough’ – where Morrison uses John Harris’ poem ‘The Gospel According to John’ to tell the sordid tale of a drugged out prostitute turning a ‘normal’ man over to the same dark lifestyle – and ‘Another Dimension’, a dark and intense build up of sounds swelling through cascading melodies, before an eruption of syncopated synth and grand piano riffs take the track’s sentiment in a completely unexpected direction.
“I needed to get back to writing these instrumental pieces where the riffs are the vocal lines, and the vibe is a sort of hypnotic mysticism mixed with late night mind bending chasers,’ Morrison continues. ‘‘Into the Deep’ is a celebration of forward thinking progressive house music; a dash of eccentric and brash synth melodies juxtaposed with bright, uppity grand piano chords and warped out arpeggiations that I hope will light up both dance floors and late night music sessions the world over.”
