Today’s song is “Romance” by Vast Caldera.
Way back in the day, Justin Weiss picked up his dad’s iPod, and life was never the same. That family road trip taught him that good music sounded like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Metallica. That trip lead to 10 years of guitar practice spent recreating the classics.
College ushered in exposure to the electronic scene. Artists like Pretty Lights and Bassnectar taught him that the sounds of the future rocked (almost) as much as classic rock. Learning how to make computer sounds quickly became the next priority. Then, one day he tried writing his own riffs and things got really interesting.
Making electronic music changed everything by empowering him to finally turn riffs into songs. With this final piece of the puzzle, the vision for Vast Caldera quickly came together.
The goal became to capture the rock riffs that were his musical first love and combine them with the vibe and the pulse of electronic shows.
Vast Caldera has created an interestingly eclectic sound that combines electronica, psychedelic riffs, and dark melodies “Romance” is an exciting track that will keep you on the edge of your seat with its classic rock riffs meld eloquently into the moving piano keys.
This track is off his debut self-produced instrumental EP Vast Caldera 1.
