Meta Junction is a community of London-based electronic musicians and progressive experimentalists working with classic old-skool and nu-skool hardware and software.
The community’s output mixes a wide range of styles uninhibited by arbitrary labeling, marrying digital communication and new technology with analogue music production methods. Meta nurtures innovation and the characters of Meta Junction (Phelan Kane, Mole Vanity, Lag, Input) are a broad pallet - an inclusive mix of music makers and talents to enhance the electronic spectrum.
Realised by seasoned producer Phelan Kane, the Meta sound was born from an obsession with vintage analogue Moog, ARP & Oberheim synthesizers, modular systems, classic effects units, dub production techniques and a big arse Calrec mixing desk that takes the output way out of the box – with a nod to the classic sounds of the electronic trail blazers and confirmation that the computer is only one part of the production mix.
