The band comments: “This track allowed us to be creative in the studio and we tried several new things. When we listened to the result for the first time, we couldn’t believe what we were hearing. We were feeling euphoric and we still do…”
Dirty Sound Magnet is a lifelong pursuit built on a feverish, border-line-religious passion for music and a common set of guiding values and beliefs. Members Stavros Dzodzosz (Guitar, Vocals), Marco Mottolini (Bass) and Maxime Cosandey (Drums), state it plainly: “there is no plan B”. Their dedication is unconditional, unequivocal, and unavoidable. Dirty Sound Magnet offers them a musical framework without any boundaries to their creative expression. The band’s DNA can be traced back to the ancestral ‘Golden Age of Rock’ (60s, 70s), but it would be incorrect to think that DSM is…”retro”. The musicians are inspired by contemporary artists and modern production techniques, pushing the boundaries as they see fit. The results are personal, unique and original. Simply put: the Dirty Sound Magnet experience is a mystical journey back to the future…
“TRANSGENIC” builds on the foundations aid by previous award winning album “Western Lies”. Drowned in this world of advanced technology and hyper-consumerism, individuals struggle to discover their inner self or communicate with each other. The album lays out a disturbing view of the present and the near future, with the significance of Social Media, and increasingly alarming ecological issues giving shape to an Orwellian dystopia.
The egocentric practices inherent to Social Media are mocked by Stavros’ insolent lyrics and tone. The drama and loneliness of “Modern Man” is highlighted across Transgenic, with emotional issues and personal experiences completing the lyrical content. Musically, The album draws on the last 50 years of Pop Culture, with some touches of traditional folk music, but as a whole, Transgenic is true Rock. Production-wise, the band plays with light and shade and introduces the terms “Organic” and “Transgenic” as musical concepts. When delving into the organic realm, the sound is warmer, and the recording techniques used are vintage.
To celebrate the release of “TRANSGENIC“, Dirty Sound Magnet will embark on a full UK/European tour this winter, with further dates to be confirmed.
