Ontario native Colin Fisher, better known by his artist name, Soundprank, has seen meteoric success in the past two years in the genre of progressive house. Trained from a young age in classical piano and jazz drums, Soundprank’s productions frequently feature a sense of instrumental realism and melodic complexity. Best known for tracks such as The Far Side and Beginnings, Fisher’s productions provide a breath of fresh air in an industry moving towards more commercial and accessible electronic music.
Despite having only been producing for three years, his initial interest in electronic synthesis and sequencer programs combined with his classical training sparked the desire to create highly melodic and more recently, driving progressive music. Aiming to compose music that evokes a sense of excitement reminiscent of old school electronic music combined with the balanced, lush and atmospheric sounds more prominent in modern EDM, the originality of Soundprank’s music is undeniable. His innovative take on retro-futurist sounds has charted him numerous times on Beatport’s Progressive House Top 100 and much of his discography has been released on Anjunadeep, including multiple features on Anjunabeats 03 and 04 compilations.
Fisher’s music has been featured extensively on Above & Beyond’s Trance Around the World and he has hosted Anjunabeats Worldwide multiple times on top of receiving massive support from the likes of Marcus Schossow, Myon and Shane 54, Jaytech and Tiesto, who featured none other than his very first release –Sand- as well as Khomha’s remix of his collaboration with Dezza, Signals, on Tiesto’s Club Life. Further projects include work with Jaytech on the progressive gem Pranktech, a number of collaborations with Boom Jinx (including Pieces Of The Puzzle, released on Anjunadeep) and some very noteworthy remixes. Despite Fisher’s rapid rise to the top of the progressive music scene, there is still much more to be seen from this young and very talented artist.
