As one of the figureheads of the seapunk scene, Ultrademon is responsible for some of the most uniquely charismatic electronic music currently being made. And quite possibly the best track ever to feature a David Attenborough sample. We find out what he’s all about…
Who are you?
Albert Redwine – An Electronic Musician That Lived In The Early 21st Century. He Performed Under The Moniker ‘Ultrademon’.
What do you sound like?
Dark nights, dusky maidens, future raves, full moon beach parties, desert stars, vine hung horizons, industrial wastelands, cyberspace DJs, mecha demon magic, ethnobotanical basslines, dark crystal messiahs, teen anime love stories, stinging auras, fungal fantasy house, nautical elves, and voidic charms.
Why should we listen to you?
So I’ll never have to say, ‘I don’t want to insult anyone’s intelligence with my music’ and ‘I try to make songs that require sacrifice to understand’.
What have you released so far? What else have you got coming out in the near future?
My own releases on Coral Records. A 12″ single of ‘Step Into Liquid’ (FFE001) and a split EP with Iron Curtis on Midnight Shift (MNS002). I have a full-length album, Seapunk, coming out in April and I have another vinyl single soon.
What or who is your biggest influence and why?
Loss, regret, and everyone I’ve ever hurt.
Where can we hear your music?
What song sums you up? Why?
‘Young Turks’ by Rod Stewart. The whole thing is sort of reverent of life, but there’s something in the song that makes it sad.
Where will you be in five years’ time?
I want to own a house near the ocean. Touring when I’m not at home.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
I grow exotic mushrooms.
