Rodg recalls everlasting memories with third solo album: 'Evocations'
A staple in the progressive realm and a frequent visitor in the worlds beyond, the trademark sonics of the Dutchman are designed to help listeners feel the moment, to build on the memories that last forever and blissfully recall the twinkles of the past. These precious ‘Evocations’ shine through in every aspect of his music, and have become the building blocks of his third solo album: ‘Evocations’.
A presence that completely covers the progressive-oriented parts of the electronic music spectrum, ‘Evocations’ brings forth some of Rodg’s most captivating creations to date. From collaborations with the likes of Maxim Lany, Dezza and Super8 & Tab to instant fan favorites such as ‘Crossroads’, ‘Definite Form’ and title track ‘Evocations’, the album touches on the everlasting memories of all who listen, offering them the chance to relive those amazing moments in the best possible way.
Rodg: “Evocation is the act of bringing or recalling a feeling, memory or image to the conscious mind, and that’s what all those records on the album are to me. They draw from the memories of tours, of shows, of livestreams, of moments with friends or family, of working with friends on music, and more recently, of missing those people. It recalls what inspires me. ‘Evocations’ translates all those experiences – and the energy I take back into the studio – into the music that shaped up to be my third Progressive album.”
Rodg, who recently did a 24-hour Twitch livestream alongside Ruben de Ronde to tease various tracks from the ‘Evocations’ album, has been receiving plaudits from leading figures across the electronic music spectrum. Championed by grade A individuals such as Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, David Guetta, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Martin Garrix and Paul van Dyk, he has released his music on avant-garde labels such as Armada Music, Statement! Recordings, Anjunabeats, Axtone and Zerothree, all the while showcasing his coveted signature sound on the live front with high-impact performances at Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, Transmission, A State Of Trance and more.
