Denton musicians Clayton Norris and Dylan Rice have been making music together since 2013, primarily trafficking in electronic instrumental soundscapes. As Vogue Machine, they've turned heads in North Texas, where there simply aren't as many synth purveyors.
The duo works with Fort Worth label Dreamy Life Records, which has helped it to move toward a synthpop sound from electronic instrumental. Visit Vogue Machine's SoundCloud page, and you'll find several tracks well-suited to the dance floor. Others are more ponderous, and some tracks mix both aesthetics.
"Prodigy," making its public debut with the Observer, was produced by Fort Worth's Nathan Brown and mastered from original analogue VHS tapes by Neon Indian drummer Jason Faries.
