About Introverted Dancefloor

Introverted Dancefloor is Bevan Smith, a New Zealander who has released music under names like Signer and Aspen, and who has played in the Ruby Suns and Skallander throughout the last decade. His prior output has been spread over many international labels and has touched on sundry genres (like techno, IDM, folk, ambient) while featuring restraint and sophistication as compositional hallmarks. As Introverted Dancefloor, Smith has kept those features as guiding principles while allowing a more propulsive low end to dominate the construction of this music, winding up with understated but energetic dance tracks. Here Smith has marked gestation as a prominent attribute as well, working with hundreds of audio layers to break down and rebuild songs, a process which often occurs over years at a time. This new direction is an exercise in constraint and assimilation, pouring specific dance-oriented influences through two synthesizers, one mic, one filter, and a single effects processor to create music that is, as its title suggests, equally contemplative and motional.
