Interstellar Destiny


Double LP version. Thyladomid is a DJ and producer based in Germany with English roots. In 2010, his single "The Voice" held the pole position on Beatport's Deep House charts for six consecutive weeks and eventually got him a "Beatport Music Award" in the category "Top Deep House Track of the Year." Since then he has released frequently on Diynamic and its imprint 2DIY4 and released highly-acclaimed collaborations with Adriatique. His debut album Interstellar Destiny, rather than deliver his usual club sound, is a deeply personal work mirroring his thoughtful and fragile nature. "Many things inspired me," he says, "but first and foremost it was movie scores. So when I was working on a track, I was actually imagining a movie scene that I would be doing the score for. The title Interstellar Destiny means something in the way of 'universal meaning' or 'human purpose.' Every track describes a process or a situation of our lives here on planet Earth, a beautiful or not so beautiful facet of our existence. The album is very melancholic and describes my musical nature in regard to my perception of my surroundings. I hope I can illustrate that to the listeners." He sure can, because the album is absorbing right from the outset, thanks to the somber bass and serene strings of opener "Intergalactic Spring." From there, the moodiness continues to build through "Generation Y," with its whispered, intimate vocals and slo-mo beats. The colorful, charming "Brotherhood" then gets a little more sun-kissed and laid-back; "Inner Space" shows how well Thyladomid does deep house; and elsewhere cuts like "Daddy Rainbow" marry rich, rounded bass with sensitive synths and vulnerable chords. A special mention goes to two tracks that instantly stick: the heartfelt "Mavericks," with its sultry singing and catchy melody to sweep listeners away, and the feel-good anthem "The Real Thing," which many will remember as one of 2014's Ibiza favorites. It was released as an album teaser EP in 2014 (DIYNAMIC 071EP), with remixes by Stimming and Adriatique, and is still as passionate as it was then. Interstellar Destiny is a remarkable example of outstanding forward-thinking electronic (dance) music, something that will catch attention on the dancefloor, but especially a great (loud) home-listening piece of music. The album proves Thyladomid's huge talent and impressively demonstrates that he is much more than just a regular producer of club tracks. Features Mâhfoud on four tracks.
