Back again, Portland-based synth pop and disco artist, Sines, has released A Series of Moments. A 14-track LP that pays homage to his memories of early electronic dance music and disco. Those late night club hitters that would have the crowds dancing and singing in ecstasy. Sines approached the album like a top hits record, working with a vocalist in each song while putting his retrowave production skills to the test. He definitely captures the oldies type nostalgia as the album plays like you’re pulling something from the past. It completely captures the moments of a culture that has evolved and shaped the large scale contemporary dance music records we hear and love today.
“I wanted this album to do a couple of things. One, I wanted the album to play like a greatest hits album. I wanted to make a record that featured different vocalists to express different feelings for each of the tracks, but I ALSO wanted the whole thing to work as a unit, and the core of the project to be a bunch of really good songs. Two, I wanted to tell stories from my life. I wanted this record to be about something. I wanted to create something that live beyond me. All of the songs are based on actual experiences that I have gone through in my life, a series of moments, if you will.”
Influenced from the likes of early pioneers Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, and Donna Summers alike, Sines audio catalog plays like a blast from the past. Heavy on the synthesizer production, think of sounds from the 70s and 80s when disco was king and leather pants were all the rage. While house and disco house makes their comeback into the mainstream, the sounds of Sines pays respects to the past.
