“I See Wind, I Hear Voices” is Tam’s debut on Wasser Bassin. The label’s second is now aimed to the dancefloor, and – we ought to say – it is a mean dancefloor: Powerful kick-drums, fat basslines and acid synths, all wrapped up in low-motion House dynamics.
In the artist’s own words ” All the tracks tell a tale. I was interested in finding some meaningful words to go with the music. I wasn’t really into the “Oh, Yeah!” kinda stuff, manly because the tracks were a bit downtempo and something like that would sound frivolous, or too damn obvious. I was always fascinated by charismatic voices, so I chose the words of a deeply charismatic preacherman: Jim Jones. Oratory is very important, and he truly mastered this talent. Although, I am aware that Mr. Jones’ actions led to a terrible mass suicide, his words, when taken out of its gruesome context, sound fairly sensible… I could believe in those words, as if madness could make perfect sense in my daily life. This constitutes a very good example of a paradox, and all I did was adding some music to that paradox .”
Well, lets prepare ourselves for the Disco-House Drama created by Mr. Tam!
“And the beat goes on…”
"Producing since 2003, TAM had is first musical experience working as a Dj in a duo named TAMDMD. He began developing his own ideas in 2004, using the possibilities offered by electronics and digital means. His working method is very simple: recording/sampling the analogical sound of musical instruments and reworking them afterwards digitally. The sounds presented are intensely cinematic. The music tries to express something visual, tries to tell something without words. It can be understood as a soundscape, or as a simple song, but that depends on the listener."
