In 1995 a simple tracker software aroused the interest of the two friends Daniel Päßler and Ricardo Linke and so they decided to produce a few tracks. Both shared a common passion for all sorts of different musical styles which made their early productions very diverse. Through the many influences of Artists from New Order and Depeche Mode to Massive Attack, The Prodigy, Moby & the various techno disciples of this multi-faceted time, the two of them produced everything they enjoyed.
However, in 1999 the two of them went separate ways for reasons of diverging careers. They quickly lost touch with each other till the contact ceased completely. Yet both of them still wished to produce music. This is why they both went on being engaged with synthesizers, music software and studio technique and working on their own tracks.
In 2003 coincidence brought them back together. The two friends met again at a small local electro party and soon realised that they still shared the same interest for electronic music as they did four years ago. After a few sessions in their domestic living room studios they decided to make more of their hobby and so they started renting their first studio in 2005.
In 2007 Microtrauma had its first release “Wake up“ on the Elected Tunes label. Their first own release “Collar EP” soon followed. Microtrauma has developed its own style in almost ten years of working and tinkering and from its many influences: melodic, dark, technoid and minimal.
Ghosting Season Biography:
Ghosting Season is Gavin Miller and Thomas Ragsdale.
It was born in 2011 out of the foundations of worriedaboutsatan, the band they have toured and recorded as for over half a decade.
The band began after meeting at Music College in 2005, initially as a side project, but soon grew into the main focus for the duo after their other bands and projects ended in early 2006. The main intention of the band was to start mixing atmospheric guitar sounds with more electronic based elements, which is still the core of the band’s sound now.
Post-rock bands like Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai have helped shape the worriedaboutsatan sound just as much as dance acts like Underworld and Trentemøller have, fusing reverb laden guitars with warm, glitchy electronica.
After the self titled collection of demos and sketches that made up the first release under the name worriedaboutsatan, the first official release as a duo was the single An Infinity Of Oncoming Lights that came out in 2006.
EP02 followed in 2007, which featured both new and reworked material, and in 2009, their debut full length album Arrivals was released to much critical acclaim. In March 2010 the duo put out the similarly praised single Heart Monitor.
2011 saw the band change their name to Ghosting Season. A moniker that seemed to better suit the direction the new material was taking. Their work was still a network of dark, brooding - yet euphoric - electronica, but there began to appear towering, vibrant, and inescapable moments of dance music. The sound was expanding beyond the identity of worriedaboutsatan.
The organic elements of the new project - guitars, voice, and found sound - highlighted the natural growth of the music, and they realised they could no longer contain it under the name, worriedaboutsatan. As its new form became more distinct, they renamed it Ghosting Season.
Ghosting Season’s new album will be released on 11th March 2012 via Last Night On Earth, the label owned by iconic producer Sasha.
