French Artist Dj Pad Releases New Album “Waiting To Be Discovered”

French artist Dj Pad has released his newest long playing album, “Waiting to Be Discovered.” The record is extremely creative and unique, drawing from the widely varied techno and digital music genre in surprisingly different ways. Dj Pad opens up his record with sounds not unlike Moby's, but quickly moves into unlikely, less mainstream areas such as eighties synth disco (see “Bleed Electric,” track four) and post-trance/psytrance (“Back to School” track eleven). Several touches of dubstep are present, as well as some wholly dubstep tracks, but the album has only one overarching tone and style – Dj Pad's own – and he is as comfortable composing an old school early nineties deep house track as he is a 2012 dubstep epic.

In addition to the record's versatility, it is also unusually enormous for a single release: “Waiting to be Discovered” is over an hour and a half long, though Dj Pad suggests that this could easily be enlarged to encompass much, much more. “I spend many hours per day composing tracks,” he writes. “At the moment, I’ve produced almost 35 hours of music.” Unsurprisingly, this remarkable collection of compositions shows a healthy use of differentiation. “I’ve slowly begun to producing some experimental tracks, and also to focus on more mainstream genres,” writes Dj Pad. “I’ve released five albums that are freely available, but now I’m thinking of going to the next level, although making money is not really the point.” The album title, therefore, is not allegorical: “I mostly want to increase my visibility.”

As influences Dj Pad names the artists Hallucinogen, ATB, Cosmic Gate, Angerfist, Afrojack, Sebastian, Hanz Zimmer, and Mike Oldfield, a list which stretches decades back and also into the contemporary releases category, which explains how Pad has become so elastic in his skills as a song smith. Another hint of this has to do with Pad's own background as a musician. “I’ve started making electronic music simply by curiosity, though I really started playing music much younger; I've been playing accordion for 15 years.” This affinity with traditional instruments is perhaps how he has learned to leave space between his many layers of sound. Many modern digital artists simply throw track after track on top of one another, creating the same sort of mush that develops when too much of anything is mixed together.

“Waiting to be Discovered” is easily Dj Pad's best collection of tracks to-date, and is widely available online beginning December 28 of 2012.
