British producer, Ben Frascina, has been tuning in ears with the beautiful atmospheric music he brings to life under the moniker Skylab 3. Influenced by a myriad of dynamic music pioneers from DJ Shadow to Massive Attack to Wu-Tang Clan, he cultivates an eclectic and entrancing catalog that allows fans to transcend reality. In June of 2016, Skylab 3 released his debut album A View From Above via Babygrande Records. Today, Skylab 3 is premiering the cinematically imaginative 'Diamond', the second music video from the album, shot and directed by Nick RichardsThe video premiered via EDM Magazine.
"For me, the title 'Diamond' ultimately relates to finding and holding onto something special in life, whether that's happiness, love, achieving goals, freedom, peace, or generally anything worth cherishing" states Skylab
"The concept for the video was something Nick Richards had in mind for a while, and we both felt it worked really well with this particular track. We wanted to capture an element of nostalgia and portray an adventure created within a child's vivid imagination." He elaborates, "The entire album 'A View from Above' has a sort of space theme to it, so I feel that a video around space exploration epitomizes the entire project and brings it to life. In line with my aforementioned reasons for the title of the song, the video explores the concept of searching for and finding something precious, treasured and rewarding."
Skylab 3 comes from a musical family and was exposed to a great many kinds of music and instruments. Skylab 3, aka Ben Frascina, learned to play keyboards at the age of nine and guitar at the age of eleven. "I've always been compelled to create music and share it with others," he states. His love for hip-hop beats played a huge part in the creation of the featured tracks on the 'A View From Above' album.
Whether the album name refers to the feeling you get when looking at a landscape from a tall building, mountain, airplane, from outer space, whether it refers to being happy or even being in an altered state of mind as a result of drugs or other spiritual methods practiced by different cultures is up to the listener entirely. Frascina's intent is to take the listener on a journey - a sonically dynamic escape from reality by getting lost in the spacey, atmospheric soundscapes that make up the album.
'A View From Above' was recorded in Sheffield, England and at Frascina's home in Cardiff, Wales. He produced and engineered the album using his MacBook and a pair of KRK Rokit 5 monitors. The main DAW used was Logic 9, and many VST instruments, Plugins (for compression, effects, re-amping etc) and audio samples containing drum hits, vocals, various sound effects and speech, which he used in tracks on the album. In addition, the album was mastered by Daddy Kev at Cosmic Zoo.
A View from Above is in stores worldwide via Babygrande Records
