The Portland-based synth-pop/disco artist and producer, Sines, delivers a synth-soaked, disco-inspired track, “Mr. Ciao,” featuring vocalist, Christina Siravo, out today.
Sines grew up with dance music and its culture, going all the way back to electronic and disco. “Mr. Ciao” creates a tale of intrigue that the dance floor brings every night. The track is surrounded by an electronic orchestra performing waves of beautiful “arpeggiated synths and cascading waves of bass.”
I love how the track captures the true vibe of the dance floor in a nightclub.
“The inspiration for this record came from my experiences dancing in nightclubs in my early youth and the magic I feel when I hear a kick ass dance record. I wanted to make a record inspired by those sweaty hedonistic nights and something that was classic in a way. I think a lot of dance music is boring and I wanted to write something that was insanely catchy like a pop song but that also came from a culture of dance music and that paid respect to proper dance music going all the way back to disco.”
Sines is Jason Wann. Wann, from Portland, Oregon, is an electronic artist and producer. As a teenager, he loved artists like Kraftwerk, Vince Clarke, Giorgio Moroder, Donna Summer, Blondie, ABBA, and many others, with the help of his parents’ record collection.
After purchasing his first synthesizer, Wann truly found his passion for creating music, which led to creating music under many other monikers. Sines is his most recent project and was initially created “to write songs to feature female vocalists and create albums to feature a variety of vocalists.”
