His vocals were a perfect fit for this track, seamlessly blending the soft, emotive vocals with the energetic tones of the synths. The result is a sound that harmoniously fuses rhythmic melodies with the darker genre defining energy. With a pulsating beat, a selection of my signature sounds, and ethereal pads, we breathed life into this release, making it part of Purified, a label that truly feels like a personal home to me.”

Gracing the Snow artwork is a photograph of a Manta Ray by Daniel Nicholson. Rays, often overshadowed by their shark relatives, are a diverse group with unique adaptations that allow them to thrive in various aquatic habitats. From the electric rays’ ability to deliver shocks, to the ethereal grace of manta rays, these creatures captivate with their distinct features. Their role in marine ecosystems is no less significant than that of sharks, as they contribute to prey population dynamics and help maintain the balance of underwater habitats. Organizations like Manta Trust delve into research and conservation efforts that emphasize the need to protect rays and their habitats. Recognizing rays’ vital contribution to ocean health enriches our understanding of these creatures’ place in the complex tapestry of marine life. They are listed as vulnerable according to the IUCN.
Located on the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, Daniel Nicholson is one of the globe’s most prominent professional underwater photographers. He seeks to share the beauty and magic of the underwater world to inspire conservation and change.
