Since 2013, Columbus-based producer Pinwheel has excelled in electronic and experimental bass. He’s also a recent Icon Collective alumnus who has recently just overcome the most difficult part in any up-and-comer’s career—mastering a unique sound and style that sets him apart. Now Pinwheel turns to What? Collective to release his newest four-track EP, No Sleep.
With No Sleep, Pinwheel has created a socially-conscious piece of art that is reflective of the times we live in. The EP also marks a new era for Pinwheel as he dives deeper into the visual components and abstract of his own works. If nothing else, the EP is a product of manifestation.
“I have been greatly affected by the world around me, and for the first time in my musical journey, I feel I’ve been able to let my music do the talking for me,” Pinwheel told CE. “The EP begins with chaotic energy into positive spaces. The purpose of this EP was to demonstrate the full spectrum of Pinwheel’s sonic palette, while also highlighting culturally relevant topics as subjectively as possible.”
In 2019, Pinwheel released singles, “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Jezebel,” both amassing a collection of national plays. Today, Pinwheel owns AWSOM Studios, where he has spent time crafting and developing as well as helping other creatives in the community.
All proceeds from the EP will be donated to the Columbus Freedom Fund.
