Kowloon Records is proud to present Erased Tapes‘ composer/sound designer Ben Lukas Boysen’s stunning rework of Tom Adam’s poignant “Fade”. His shimmering rework makes remarkable use of the song’s swelling atmospheres and sparse minimalist instrumentation, building the song up to a riveting crescendo. Originally taken from Adam’s ‘Voyages By Starlight’ EP, Boysen’s thoughtful rework breathes new life into the moving, pastoral ballad.

Composer / electronic musician Tom Adams grew up near Cambridge, the flattest part of the UK. Despite this, or perhaps because of this, Tom’s heart has found a home in the wild and mountainous places of this earth. This love of nature is an ever present voice in his work, lending a widescreen quality to his music, from intimate piano moments to mountainous waves of sound.

He started playing the piano at a young age, and soon discovered that improvising and creating new music came a lot more naturally than reading dots on a page. This discovery blossomed when he bought his first guitar as a teenager and Tom soon started to write his own songs, his haunting voice has drawn comparisons to singers like Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley. Going on to study music at the University of York he had the opportunity to work with both classical and electronic music, the combination of which has become the defining aspect of his sound.

Combining his natural ability to improvise with his classical training and electronic music knowledge Tom is able to move seamlessly between styles whilst always maintaining a strong overall aesthetic. The result is a breathtaking and beautiful musical experience that is a perfect soundtrack to mountains and wild beaches.
