In The Screen, Lights Out, Sympho Nympho: Explained
Over recent months, Subliminal Records has seen a brace of new releases credited to brand new production outfits.
We’ve had huge dancefloor moments coming from In The Screen, Lights Out and Sympho Nympho, but did you know that all three monikers are in fact Erick Morillo, Harry Choo Choo Romero and Jose Nunez, going under different guises and exploring exciting new musical directions as a collective?
Read what Erick has to say about them all in an exclusive interview on ErickMorillo.com
EXCITEMENT AT THE UNKOWN
“In The Screen was one of the first concept names we came up with,” tells Jose, “we threw around ideas and there was a lot of excitement and a feeling of the unknown.”
The trio spent time in the studio with Rachel Star and watching the project go from those first steps to a full blown performance at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival in March was a career highlight for Nunez.
“Watching how the crowd claimed this record was amazing to me,” beams Jose. “I can still hear the roar of the crowd after the first drop. Oh my god! From the first studio stages to that, it came all together at the end.”
“All the collaborating we do is always full of laughs,” says Harry. “Somehow we manage to finish new music through all the jokes!”
“I think the 3 of us click in the studio because we all know what role we play and the egos are checked at the door. We all are comfortable to express ourselves, whether good or bad. We keep our eyes on the prize and all do our best for the good of whatever project is before us… and we are buddies, which is always a plus!”
With In The Screen carving a name for itself already, what of the other two pseudonyms?
“Lights Out is our more late night underground sound,” says Harry. “More grooved based, really letting the groove speak for itself. The drama for that style lies with using delays, frequency and reverbs for tension and crescendos. It sounds less produced as a result, which I sometimes much prefer.”
EXPLORE OUR DIVERSITY
With the dark side covered, there’s room for some music with real pop sensibilities, which is exactly what the Sympho Nympho project is all about, featuring collaborations with some of the biggest names in the charts today.
“We kinda soaked up all musical genres since the late 70′s between us,” says Jose. “And we wanted to explore our diversity in a new dimension for us – popular music. It’s a radio friendly sound where we’ve morphed all our ideas and influences.”
“With Sympho Nympho, we get to be more playful and express ourselves in a totally different way than before,” agrees Harry. “It’s a new boundary for us that we are having a blast discovering.”
Stay tuned for lots more music coming from all 3 of these exciting projects…
