Andrew Miles “ClubbyThingy” song licensed for “The Devil’s Five”

Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham has reached an agreement with Andrew Miles to license his song “ClubbyThingy” for The Devil’s Five segment.

Wickham says, “I first heard Andrew Miles music when I reviewed his DeeperNET One album in 2013.   He’s got this way of creating amazing beats to go along with his electronica that is fun, exciting and just totally refreshing.

We worked together in 2015 when Andrew licensed one of his tracks for the Super Punch and Kick Target Informercial.

When it came time to have a song playing from the radio of one of the young ladies car in The Devil’s Five, I knew I had to reach out to Andrew because he’s a master of that kind of sound.   He had this track available, which was perfect for the movie.  I’m so excited that he could be part of the film.”

Read Andrew’s Bio to discover more about the talented musician:

Andrew Miles’ fascination with music and sound began when he was just ten years old in Chicago, Illinois where he would explore creative 4-track tape recording, multi-uses of FX units and abstract recording techniques; all of which inevitably led him to the modern uses of electronics and computer based recording.

After years of dabbling with genres such as ambient, noise, industrial and techno, Andrew found his true calling from influential artists like Simon Posford (Hallucinogen, Shpongle), whose work made him realize that a recording is not just a two-dimensional space, but rather a whole world that exists in the stereo field.

In 2003, Andrew studied at Full Sail University in Orlando, FL. He received further knowledge of world class studios and equipment that is out of reach of many. Elaborating and breaking rules were his key focus to stand out from the crowd of 1000’s of others.

Relocating to Portland, OR in 2010, where he now operates under the moniker DeeperNET, Miles has been perfecting his own sonic signature by blending genres such as downtempo, EDM, psychedelic, and trance into an inspired Psytronica-charged sound – a sound he calls “SpaceTECH.”

A passion for digging behind the menus and exploring new techniques is where the story continues today…

DeeperNET – The Network

Spotted Peccary Music – 2016

The latest CD from DeeperNET (aka Andrew Miles) is a florid creation of sound, beats and musical imagination.

For some reason  “Cracking the Code” reminded me of the great score for Tom Tykwer’s Run Lola Run.  Once the stomping beat begins to pulsate it’s hard not to go with the flow.

“Vision Quest” plays like computer geek on a rampage searching for the answer to the world’s biggest tech mystery.  Keyboards lines run amok, while a constant percussive strikes drives the tune towards the ultimate answer.  The dripping keyboard sound is pretty cool an unique.

“Hearts on Fire” felt like was composed by a wicked DJ at some sort of Fashion Show gone mad.  I can picture fashion models struggling to match the dynamic groove of propulsive electronica tinged with darkness.

Hearing the fourth track “Satori” brought a smile to my face because three minutes of it was used in the Martial Arts product infomercial I Directed for Super Punch & Kick Target (click to view the commercial).  It’s carried by a rhythmic engine of thumping drums and slamming keyboard lines whirling and twirling about.

“Mystic Division” blows in like the cool breeze of a tropical ocean, bringing the fragrance of serenity and peace.  The nine and a half minute track definitely has a purpose, but not at the expense of bringing relaxation.  I love the bongo or international sounding drum hitting, which was totally unexpected and fitting at the same time.  I love the way Miles uses the production technique of making the sound swell wide and then he funnels it down to a point.  Very cool approach and displays a musical master at the helm.

I think it would be darn near impossible not to move to the rhythm of “Quadraphilia.”  Drums slap in all sorts of ways, while cymbals slink & hit for the 8-minute duration.  It’s not hard for DeeperNET to catch you in it’s webbing of melodic techno trance.

You better hurry to jump on the audio train that is the title track, “The Network.”   This tune takes off for a nine-and-a-half minute sprint down a sonic pathway of electronic euphoria.   Miles switches things up just for the six-minute mark just to make your journey unforgettable.

“Fabrics of the Subconscious” is a conglomeration of sound design and mixed with expert manipulation of a full arsenal of electronic firepower.  It even ends with 2 minute slow down to ease you off the this wild ride.

What I found particularly interesting about listening to The Network is how fast it seems to zip by.  But the fact is that it’s a 69-minute album that feels half its length.  That’s a real testament to DeeperNET and the talented man named Andrew Miles.

DeeperNET – ImpØssible Landscape

Spotted Peccary Music – 2014

The latest album from DeeperNET is absolutely invigorating.  From the start, “Aether,” I was jazzed with life-affirming work that is creative, innovative and inspirational.  I love the patterns and skipping percussion that spark this opening tune.

All sorts of electronic sounds surround “Fractal Dimension” with light.

It was cool hearing female vocalist Zefora add her voice to the melody of “Fluid in Blue.”

Andrew Miles (a.k.a. DeeperNET) comes up with some beautiful rhythmic structure in “Movements.”  Hypnotic keyboard lines twirl and spin around slapping percussion to make for fun seven and a half minutes.  The deep synthesized notes that rise up and blare out in almost low brass fashion is unusual and in a way reminds me of something John Carpenter would do for a film.  The way the keyboard line spirals up like the vortex of a tornado about three and a half minutes in, is awesome.

There’s something about “Illuminated by Ultraviolet” that makes it feel Asian.  The soundscape is pretty vast with all sorts of little flourishes that make it interesting to experience.

I enjoyed how the dark notes of “Thought Drop” slowly move in purposeful manner.  It’s definitely one of my favorite pieces on this CD.

The little sparkling notes in “Astral Body” sound like a computer that’s gone haywire and could explode. Miles really manipulates the sound in the ninth track by chopping, looping, repeating and having the music give the sensation of an outer body experience.

Deeper NET saves the longest track for last.  “Quantum Teleportation” is 10-minutes long and features glacial swells of ambience, stomping drums and wraps this offering as nothing but a good time.
