Known for blending the bright maximalist soundscapes of Asian pop with driving guitars and bass of frantic indie rock under the name Alpine Escape, and for marrying the elec- tronic genes of house and future funk with the alias AXALP, Sekomi: Official Soundtrack is McCarthy’s most ambitious project yet. Leaving behind his traditional workflows in favour of darker ambient soundscapes, heavier guitar-driven metal music and everything the world has to offer inbetween, Sekomi is his first foray into composing for video games and offers a more diverse and in-depth look into how he builds upon his musical and production creativity from the testing playground of his YouTube covers, which have col- lectively amassed over 25,000 views. Sekomi is an indie role-playing game made by a team of programmer/artist and com- poser. Set in Japan, it takes heavy inspi- ration from the Like A Dragon (formerly Yakuza) series of games and requires a similar level of (if not more) diverse range of music. The game will see som- bre string arrangements sitting next to jazz ensembles, contemporary synthscape ambience, from EDM with a strong Japanese influence in its compo- sition to a more head-on ethnic influ- ence with the traditional Chinese instru- ments blended with modern beats in the Chinatown music. The final boss in par- ticular features a return to the epic maxi- malist style of old, cramming in many el- ements to create the massive and epic score expected of cinematic orchestras in a more modern and creative environment. The full soundtrack, including instrumentals of vocal tracks and all minor tracks heard during world exploration, will be released worldwide alongside the game on all stream
Ellis Mason divides his time between his two major projects, Dead Noize and his solo work as BADNIX. He is a creative force in both and the sole force behind BADNIX which is a stage persona he has held since 2020. Ellis began on Soundlcoud uploading bedroom recordings and after deleting them all in 2021 he moved to Spotify with his first major project ‘The Big Empty.’ Due to the dissatisfaction of working alone he joined up with uni friends and formed ‘Dead Noize’ which is a Swansea based rock band that he does 50% of the writing in.
