Jim Davies, the man who gave THE PRODIGY’s biggest hits a guitar-shaped boot up the electronic arse, is set to launch his debut instrumental guitar album on Mascot Records. Electronic Guitar is a pulsating record, showcasing Davies’ ingenious guitar techniques that blur the line between synths and six-strings.\
“The dance scene became a massive source of inspiration for me at a time when I felt I’d taken my rock style playing as far as it could go,” says Davies. “I loved all the squelchy filter sounds and layers of synth lines, so I started using more guitar effects to try and emulate those sounds.”
“The plan was to incorporate my love of electronic music into the world of the guitar instrumental. It was important to me that I did this album in my own style. I’ve always been into effects and creating un-guitar like sounds, so this is an electronic-based guitar album using nothing but the guitar itself to create the more ‘techno’-like sounds. In-fact all the sounds on the record except the drums and bass are guitar generated!!”
“I hope I have succeeded in taking the guitar instrumental genre down a slightly different road… or murky back alley”.
