about

"Put on your headphones and turn out the lights." – Resident Advisor

"By discarding percussion altogether, or, more likely never conceiving of any in the first place, Souns takes a perfectly understandable – and purifying – step for ambient dub. [...] If you open yourself to them, you can hear the same hidden beats that ghost more subtly rhythmic free-jazz and ambient excursions of Don Cherry, Sun Ra, Jane, or Flying Lotus." – Ravelin Mag

"On Aquamarine, Souns shows how recognizable and sophisticated his sound has become, no matter which way he chooses to package it." – Exclaim!


Aquamarine is the debut album by Souns, an ambient project by the well recognized Vancouver-based producer and dj Michael Red. With Souns, Red explores themes that are reflective of the natural world, the unseen world, outer space, and transcendence. Performances are largely intuitive and improvised, sometimes guided. The audio is an immersive world of deep sonic output, lucid introspection, and seemingly endless layers of sound. Typically there are no "drums" in Souns material, though there might be a detectable pulse. As heard on the first album track “Untouched," Aquamarine leaves an unmistakable mark on the listener, reverberating in the mind long after listening. The new album is out December 8th on Subtempo Records.
