Hidden Shoal is excited to announce the signing of Perth based (via UK) electronic producer Liminal Drifter (aka Dr. Simon Order) to its roster of artists.
Order’s previous work in the UK includes the ’90s project dUB Rumble, producing remixes with UK prog rockers Galahad and infamous funksters The Bird Tribe along with numerous TV, film and radio sound credits. Order is also an academic at Perth’s Murdoch University, where he researches radio and music technology, including radio production, community media, user-interface usability, and the use of music technology in teaching and learning.
His work as Liminal Drifter is an ongoing travelogue between identities, physical places and states of consciousness. Many of these dreamy, evocative slices of ambient electronica evolved on hand-held mobile devices, away from the studio, while traveling or visiting new places. This sense of contemplative, exploratory rootlessness imbues his work with the wistfulness and open narrative we often associate with travel.
Liminal Drifter’s debut album Troubled Mystic features collaborations with the ever wonderful Chloe March and will see release on August 12th, preceded by the first single in early July.
