Attention all music producers seeking inspiration during lockdown… London based recording artist Third Son, aka Joseph Thomas Price has just unveiled his debut album, 20 Days, recorded and mastered in, yes, you guessed it, 20 days.

Recorded at his home studio and released on the Polymath label, the first note of the album was laid down on 1 May and the creative process behind the album was documented throughout.

Utilising a range of equipment, including an Elektron Octatrack MK II, Pioneer Toraiz Squid, Arturia Beatstep Pro and a custom modular synth – not to mention a whole host of modules – the resulting project demonstrates Third Son’s range of influences, from ambient electronica to straight-up 4/4 beats.

Commenting on the release, he said, “I’m so pleased with how this turned out. It could have very easily gone the other way considering the time constraint, but I think that adds to the honesty of the record.

This feels like the kind of music I’ve wanted to put out for years.”

The album follows on from Third Son’s recent release on Matthew Herbert’s Accidental Jr imprint, The Brain Named Itself.
