Can you honestly deny this? If you have never heard this jam, then possibly, but it's damn near impossible otherwise. The countdown at the front of the song is fair warning, what come next is pure energy. The beat, the arpeggiated analog synth line, the continued counting in various languages; you have to move! And this is not just for breakdancing. My old bones still have to move whenever I hear these four Germans paving the way for electro. Just watch the video below. If this doesn't do something to your soul, then we probably can't be friends. Dance folks, DANCE!
We are super-stoked to be representing the first release and catalog of Symbolized! Symbolized is the electronic/ambient alter ego of designer/illustrator/purveyor-of-good-vibes, Christopher David Ryan. Best described as ambient music, Symboized's first release, Figures 1-9, is meant to transport the listener to another mindset, thus freeing one from the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Please take a listen on Spotify and hear for yourself!
And with that being said, we are going to start adding as much as we can to the site. We have had so many amazing artists that have worked with us, so we should do what we can to promote their work and point you to their sites. Here are a few of the gifted artists that we have worked with:
There are certainly more, and we will add them to the site as we sift through our current collection. Be on the lookout for a page dedicated to artwork!

The band grew out of a longtime friendship between Ryan Lambert (a former actor - Kids Inc., The Monster Squad) and Terry Ashkinos. While living in Los Angeles, Ryan and Terry were in separate punk and indie bands who frequently shared the stage touring across the country. Terry moved to San Francisco in 1998 and the pair began writing songs together, collaborating over a distance. Over time they realized that they may be on to something – so in 2003 Ryan decided to move to San Francisco to pursue a new band with Terry, and elephone was born.
The Society Of Rockets are finishing up the mastering stage of their forthcoming album, Family Ways! Gary Hobish is once again lending his ears to their latest creation, which should land in our lap pretty soon. Instrumental masters will also accompany this release for production purposes so be on the lookout!
Hello Internet! Our good friends, The Foreign Resort, have once again traveled to the States to spread the good sounds! Please head out and support these fine Danes in their mission to spread shoegaze and post-rock to North American ears!
It certainly hasn't been slow! We have some good news on the way, potential good news on the way, and this from The Revue!
"The Society of Rockets are from San Francisco and they recently started sharing tracks on their Soundcloud account.
“Telescopic Man” is about everyone wanting to be bigger than who they really are. The track reminds of early 60s rock and includes some disco vibes throughout.
“Telescopic Man” is from a collection of EPs that was supposed to released on an album titled Populuxe. The Society of Rockets now have new material with their upcoming release titled Plutonium Blues."
Super cool! They should probably be in films, just saying, music supes.
