Label boss David Lindmer returns to Running Clouds for a very special release. A very personal piece written during the lockdown, Omen is a collaboration with Berlin based vocalist Johanson and lands alongside a stunning music video created by director DRUST.
David Lindmer is a UK born artist based out of New York. It was in 2018 David really found his signature sound characterized by driving, powerful techno that is rich in melody and cinematic drama. Having worked within the VFX industry for many years, David’s passion for sound design and cinematic scores also led him to explore the relationship between audio and the visual arts.
David is also the co-owner of Melodic Techno label Running Clouds founded in 2018 and the Chromia Sound collective. With recent high profile support from the likes of Tale of Us, Mind Against, and many more, David continues to develop as an artist and push the boundaries of immersive audio.
With Omen, David delivers his signature driving melodic techno, rich with emotion and charged with a melancholic atmosphere while maintaining enough low-end punch to absolutely work on the dancefloor. Luscious pads grace the breakdown and create a comforting blanket, wrapping around Johanson’s evocative vocals before resolving into a highly distinctive, synth-heavy, 80’s influenced finale.
Omen is accompanied by a stunning music video created by DRUST, a director raised between Paris & London with a European sensibility to filmmaking. The starting point for the Omen video was to explore the theme of doomed relationships and witness the nuanced moments where things take a wrong turn.
“Bringing emotion to the forefront of the viewers’ experience was key to the storytelling. David was a fantastic artist to engage with because of his openness to the collaborative effort of the whole piece. Early on we decided that the images shouldn’t feel like they’d just been tacked onto the track, but that pictures enhance the music and vice versa. This feeling of both being fully bedded together was of primary importance to us.” DRUST
