Project Skyward aspire to create the universe in sound, drawing from a background in science and astronomy, songwriter Ryan Field hopes to bring the heavens down to earth as expressed through thought provoking lyrics and captivating soundscapes.
Like a chance meeting in space between Flying Saucer Attack and the Cocteau Twins, Project Skyward is as catchy as it is cosmic. Modulated guitars, sublime electronics and breathy boy/girl harmonies combine to create an androgynous, boundless music which is so radical and yet so recognisable, it could only have been hatched on this planet.
Hot from his stellar release on Hope Recordings, LA based Ryan has constructed one of the most inspired mixes we’ve hosted this year. From Ambient beginnings, he moves effortlessly through genres, taking in the likes of Ulrich Schnauss and Luke Slater plus a couple of amazingly cheeky bootlegs and some live reworkings. This mix is about to make your Sunday a whole lot better!
