Hailing from North London’s vibrant Warehouse community, Darkstates is not just another name in the electronic music scene. He’s a producer, vocalist, and songwriter who crafts atmospheric electronic music with a unique blend of analog hardware and acoustic instruments. “Glint” is a testament to his distinctive style, reminiscent of the experimental sounds of Animal Collective, the intricate rhythms of Fourtet, and the emotive vocal textures of Bon Iver.

Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of genres, including 90’s trip hop, jazz, melodic techno, and post-rock, Darkstates’ music is a rich tapestry of sound. His tracks are known for their textured soundscapes that often crescendo to a climactic finish, and “Glint” is no exception. This track is a harmonious blend of electronic music with elements of traditional songwriting, capturing a mood that is both introspective and expansive.

Darkstates made a notable entrance into the music world with his debut release ‘Flood’ in 2020. Mixed by the renowned Adam ‘Cecil’ Bartlett, known for his work with artists like PJ Harvey and The Big Moon, “Flood” is a vocal-led, downtempo masterpiece that garnered radio support from Amazing Radio in both the UK and USA. It also found its place in Apple Music’s ‘Winter Chill’ playlist, showcasing Darkstates’ ability to resonate with a wide audience. His recognition further solidified in 2021 when he was selected as one of the artists for New York’s CMJ music festival, sharing the stage with talents like Emma Jean-Thackery and Yard Act.

“Glint” is a reflection of Darkstates’ evolving artistry and his commitment to pushing the boundaries of electronic music. Highly recommended for those who appreciate depth, texture, and a touch of nostalgia in their music.
