OUT NOW: The Lunar Veil – Static Twist

The Lunar Veil = Thys, Hvdson & Samsonite. This song is the result of Songcamp, a web3 writing camp that the three of us signed up for earlier this year. The track had lived exclusively on the ethereum blockchain so far, but Eccentric O is happy to release this ambitious and multi-faceted piece on all platforms today, just before this weird year ends. Huge thanks to the whole Songcamp squad, and specifically Peace Node for the amazing artwork ❤

OUT NOW: DoomTimelineTM

Returning to club music with a dirty 130 tune. Fundamentally it’s not much more than a carefully distorted 808 bass, a vocal snippet, and a hugely blown up breakbeat. The title is a reference to my twitter rants about the “hot garbage” state the world is in. The sense of doom that seems inevitable if you look at it a certain way and the realisation that we’ll always have to crack on with life anyhow.

THYS LIVE DJ SET at Outlook 2021

Here’s the recording of my set at Outlook! I played after Calibre on his stage, so I started at 160 bpm, dropped down to 130 and worked my way back to 160. There’s a bunch of new tunes I’m working on in here. I wish the crowd sound had been recorded as well, this was such a good night! x Photo by Farhad Khodadadzade (@fk_nl)


‘Thys presents Eccentric O’ launches my new label with a four track EP. I’m trying to be more expressive, more intimate, more vulnerable in my music. Besides exploring new technology and new techniques, on this record I’m also exploring the human voice and my personal voice. The four titles connect into a little poem. I’m exploring what kind of music I can make with HollyPlus, an AI trained to sing whatever audio material you feed it with my friend Holly Herndon’s voice. I look into different tuning systems, and different time signatures. I make 160/jungle, but I try to make it feel warm, safe and welcoming. I play piano in my living room, and you hear my phone receiving messages while I play. This is me. This is what I have to give to you.

Turning Point (Performed by Thys and Noordpool Orchestra)

This feels like coming home: an official orchestral version of one of the tracks from the ‘Ithaca’ EP. An EP that was written with a lot of orchestral instruments, and with a sound-design/mixdown esthetic that almost has more in common with the dynamic sound of the orchestra than some of my and Amon’s music in other genres that are more focused on drums and impact. The Turning Point recording by Noorpool Orchestra is out today on VISION! You can also watch the beautiful corresponding video on self – titled here.
