WA?STE is the moniker of Felix Idle--producer, artist & Valley Spirit Recordings label head, based out of Melbourne, Australia. He makes music that characterizes both the curiosity and content fatigue stemming from long hours online. He rips the euphoric guts from trance, gabba & other hard dance genres, re-integrating it into slower but no less ambitious instrumentals. This aggressive eclecticism forms a bed for his saccharine vocal melodies & gently blurred-out lyricism. He has supported M.E.S.H., Air Max 97, Lone, Holly Herndon and Eternal Dragonz' V Kim, as well as having collaborated with Mya Gomez and Ptwiggs on newer productions.
Hollow Vessel is his first release under this current moniker. The title refers to the feeling of being an observer to events in one's own life, of acquiescing to fate.
