Friends of Friends presents the concept album, Frozen Throne, from Groundislava. Exploring and transforming the influences of 80s culture, TV, technology, sci-fi and video games into his own unique blend of synth pop, electro, house and R&B.
Following the summer release of his Feel The Heat EP, Groundislava aka Jasper Patterson returns with his third studio album, a ten song concept LP entitled Frozen Throne. The 24 year old self-described "cyberpunk" producer transforms influences of 80s culture, TV, technology, sci-fi and video games into his own unique blend of synthpop, electro, house and R&B that is equal parts nostalgia and shiny futurism.
Patterson takes his diverse sound a step further in Frozen Throne, connecting all 10 tracks with the overarching theme of searching for real love in a futuristic cyber-based reality. Featuring heavy collaboration with Rare Times, the upcoming LA future pop duo of Anthony Calonico and Alex Talan, Frozen Throne takes listeners to a grim fantasy world where escape seems impossible. The smooth R&B vocals from Rare Times mixed with
Groundislava’s slow-burning beats and melodies wind their way through Patterson’s handcrafted narrative. Filled with soulbearing honesty, Frozen Throne is a cinematic soundscape for evolving into greater consciousness through the technological reawakening.
