His music is a mighty cocktail of industrial-boom with the Devil’s blues, electro break-beats with haunting harmonicas and lo-fi loops with southern slide.
Caustic Roll Dave may be a blues-man, but much more than in the traditional sense many have come to know.
Although honouring the blues and its sound and glory, there is a new rawness and urgency created in part by the combination of the old-school, the retro-cool and the modern post-blues.
APPROACHING NOISE, Caustic Roll Dave’s second album, was released on March 2014. The underground artist returns to take steps further with his trademark sound, and the foundation of blues becomes just one more fiery ingredient.
Combinations that could appear strange to some but in Approaching Noise they flow in an overwhelming way: mashed-up melodies, distorted drum beats, hazy harmonicas, hip hop scratches, primitive guitars.
All under a raw fierce production from the Caustic Roll Dave’s laboratory in Barcelona and mastered by Mike Mariconda in Austin, Texas.
