Dig Deep with Veilo (Tectonic) 120712
This week we're on a bit of a techno tip as we welcome Chris McNally aka Veilo into the studio. He comes armed with a wedge of self produced tracks, and we will be having a chat to the man about his work, his inspirations and the upcoming Loopfest event.
Here's a little intro... Chris is a bit ambitious when it comes to music. It all started at an open night at high school where he saw a person playing the drums. Inspired, Chris took upon myself to learn and practised all the time. As he got older he started getting into dance music. He started mcing to Maximes (one of the legendary Wigan rave clubs) style music.
As did many an old school raver, Chris eventually grew out of it and moved on. He met a man called Dan Moorcroft who introduced him to techno. Chris started making his own techno tracks with a computer programme, under the guise of Veilo, and again practised and listened all the time. And even now Chris never stops thinking about how to better his musical inspirations...
A fond lover of his beats, bleeps and basslines - the sound of Veilo sits somewhere between the darker shades of techno, dubstep and electro where minimal 4/4 soundscapes meet head noddin electronica.
