With one eye on the past and one eye towards the future, Sonic Radiation constructs exciting electronic dance music that is both intriguing and captivating while holding true to the roots of the genre.
While constantly creating tools for the modern DJ’s arsenal and reinterpreting remixing projects, Sonic Radiation forges ahead with a vision towards the future of electronic music. The vision started by experimenting for two years to create high energy music that was released as The 121 Project.
Formed in 2003, the Dallas, Texas-based artist, Todd Last, worked to create music that arranges songs with a combination of techno and trance that are solid and unique. Inspired by industrial groups like Front 242 and Front Line Assembly, electronic groups like The Crystal Method and Astral Projection, as well as the Dallas club scene, Sonic Radiation pulls from those styles to give the listener something for the ear, the mind and the dance floor.
How did you come by your stage name?
Music and sci-fi always excited me as a youngster. When I got older, I discovered electronic music and wanted to make some too. Sonic Radiation was a moniker I thought fit my style. Sonic Radiation aspires to express hope, energy, and reverence for Electronic Music and life.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
When I first heard electronic music in college, I was blown away! It was so different and unique from anything I’d heard before. I was hooked and had to make my own. It took a long time and I’m thrilled to be able to now.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I’m a huge fan of Star Wars and sci-fi movies. Also, great bands like Rush, Depeche Mode, and many others.
On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?
My newest release is another journey into and back from the unknown. When making a song, I enjoy trying to create a sonic character with unique energy and getting it sounding the best I can then share it with others throughout the galaxy.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
I’m longtime Spinal Cord Injury sufferer and had to work hard to gain back the ability to live and follow my lifelong dream of creating Electronic Music. Continuing to create Electronic Music is an important therapy for my recovery and future.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
It takes me a long time to make a track. I try to stay focused and get it the best I can. I think it’s fun and interesting.
