Nature Flow is the third album from Scots producer Paul Croan using the Alex Tronic name. Previous albums are `To Infinity (2009) and `Shifting Sands` (2011)
This CD comes under the guise of Alex Tronic versus Leith Bass Team.
Leith Bass Team is another outlet for some of Paul’s material that features guest musicians from his label namely Matthew Leigh Embleton ( Snakestyle).
The CD also features long time vocal collaborator Kirsty Brown and new contributions from Polina Domnina on violin and Scots chanteuse Georgia Gordon.
The album is predominately a collection of down tempo electronic tunes with the emphasis on consistency of sound. The disc hints of Ibicencan and Goa chillout but it mostly has roots in a modern British sound.
Croan said of the album:
`The idea of the Nature Flow album is to have a focus on melody with not too many key changes. I wanted to create a simple but sophisticated sound that people may enjoy post club or a soundtrack to life in general. There is a natural flow that runs through the album. Many elements are found and sampled real life nature sounds. These are hopefully used to create interesting results in the recordings`.
Paul has previously compiled many cds for the successful Goa Beach series for the German distributors Kontor from his studio in central Edinburgh.
