A groovy summer jam with a cool production that features mid-filtered vocals that create a cool telephone or old ham radio vibe. The dynamics keep somewhat motionless which creates a contemplative mood that might not have otherwise been there with more active drumming. Check out Ran Pinks “A Long Time” below off their LP Guilty Pleasures.
Ran Pink is a grammy nominated music producer, multi-instrumentalist, and composer based in Los Angeles, California.
He is the owner of Fonogenic Studios, where he has collaborated, recorded, engineered, and produced various artists from The Wallflowers, David Grohl, Band of Horses, Pete Yorn, Taylor Hawkins, to Don Was, Alan Parsons, Kris Kristofferson and Priscilla Presley for the BBC.
Shortly after leaving Berklee School of Music in 1997, Ran Pink’s career in music took a leap forward when his band Mankind Liberation Front was signed to RCA in 1998. Since then, he has formed several music projects such as Remote, with his brother Tal Pink, and Pink & Noseworthy, a trio consisting of Shanee Pink and guitarist Mark Noseworthy (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros).
As of late Ran acted as the mixing engineer and co-producer on the grammy nominated albums for modern jazz big band Monk’estra’s Volume 1 and Volume 2.
In 2018 he released “Therapy” EP. His first solo release. His song “Modern Work Of Art” was picked up by blogs and Spotify playlists.
In his first solo release “Therapy” Ran Pink delivers an ambient tour de force. Lush, multilayered grooves take the listener on a profoundly soulful journey. Fans of Zero7, and Air will be delighted as the veteran SoCal music producer simultaneously takes us down palm-lined sunset streets and dystopian future dreamscapes. It’s nice to finally see him giving himself (and us) some much needed “Therapy”
He’s recently collaborated with artist Kid Bloom with new music coming out in 2020.
In 2020, amidst the quarantine, Ran finished the songs from the past 2 years and made the album “Guilty Pleasures”. It’s an eclectic mix of Ran’s favorite vintage flavors with an indie dreamlike emotional kick. Ran explores the piano a bit more than usual here, going back to his roots as a musical kid who started on the keys.
