You've never heard music like this before.
MM XX is Cellular Signal's first EP, just released this summer in 2020. While continuing to build on Shayne White's melodic, dynamic progressive wave style, there are new dimensions and layers of vocal harmonies, evolving and morphing textures, punch-to-your-gut drum beats and more. Shayne has also reintroduced his harp on this release, pairing enchanting arpeggios and glissandos with groovy basses and lush, airy pads that are simply breathtaking. Classic analog stereo delays, choruses, phasers, and other effects are everywhere, along with new custom wavetable digital sounds, making MM XX one of the most exciting electronic releases ever. Find it at all your favorite streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Tidal, Deezer, BandCamp, and more. Preview a track below!
Please Don't Go
Sparkling harp arpeggios and more.
A companion single being released alongside Cellular Signal's debut EP, MM XX. This includes one of the tracks from the EP plus an extended version.
Please Don't Go features a unique blend of groovy, vintage-sounding beats and funky bass mixed with sparkling harp and lush pads. The vocals in the song are entirely processed through Izotope's Vocal Synth 2, giving a slightly robotic yet still human quality. The song has a fun feel and yet the lyrics speak of wistful longing and pain, capturing multiple emotions at once. It's one of the most complex pieces on the EP.
The extended mix includes a longer beginning and bridge.
Creative. New. And It's Here.
Wonders Of is Cellular Signal's debut single. Take a journey back to the ancient world of Babylon, where King Nebuchadnezzar built an enormous golden statue of himself and made everyone who served him worship it. So his advisor Daniel had to come and give him a reality check: that God would remove him from the throne of his empire until he acknowledged that he was not a god and that there was a power higher than himself.
Of course, such a powerful story needs powerful music to match, and Wonders Of is exactly that. The drums, sequences, pads, and effects are massive and dynamic, guiding you through time and space to the hanging gardens where Nebuchadnezzar ruled.
